Context (for those who haven’t seen B99): Rosa’s girlfriend visits her at work to break up with her because she’s feeling neglected. Rosa doesn’t like it. She comes up with a plan to beg her girlfriend to stay with her, make things better and when their relationship is at its best, dump her to get even (she doesn’t actually do this, btw). But this was Jake’s reaction:
"enemies to lovers" no enemies AND lovers. they cant fucking stand eachother yet cant get enough of one another, they get into fist fights and melt in eachothers arms, theyd die for eachother, theyve tried to kill eachother, one of them was brutally gutted at the same table that they've shared so many romantic meals at. they'll make eachother bleed because they just look so pretty all covered in blood. Love is poisonous and these bitches are suicidal.
“But showrunner Laura Neal killed off Villanelle so seemingly carelessly, after dangling the carrot of a fully realized and happy (if not somewhat dysfunctional) lesbian relationship in viewers faces. It didn't just feel like sloppy storytelling—it felt personal.”
