HAS POOR VILA BEEN DRAGOONED INTO THIS SHITSHOW? lots of suggestion/actual past!Vila, Soolin, Tarrant
WHY ARE BLAKE AND AVON DOOMED THIS WEEK? Because Blake’s been conditioned a lot and GP is about to happen and Avon knows it, and also Avon loves Vila more (now, he didn’t used to) and Blake is straight.
EDITOR’S NOTE: none
PROSE: Like yoghurt with granola stirred in: generally smooth but with weird chunky bitsOVERALL: You know what is a hard sell for me? Avon and Vila have been shagging for a while (11 years, on and off), and Avon thought he might be in love, but Vila cheated on him with Soolin, so now Avon’s annoyed. Just like, as background info. Admittedly this is in part because I don’t like or trust Avon/Vila AT ALL, but even with that, I think–that’s a lot to ask me to just accept as not-important, informing!background? I do like this ex-prison brothel set piece. Look, there’s some intriguing plot stuff, but I ended up skimming the ending: too much going on, messy, emotional whiplash, dragging.
