Thinking that we may be a day away from Carlos telling a comatose TK that he loves him ✌️
Happy to see Kenneth and JLH are back. I will be happier if it means a bad written recurring character everybody deeply cares (!) is leaving. At least it means they are not gonna give their screentime to that character again right? RIGHT???
That sneak peak has me wanting and dreading next episode. Cause I’m pretty sure tk’s gonna flatline and we might get crying Carlos and possibly Andrea reyes and I’m not ready
A parallel to the moment in 503 where Maddie says "I love you, I love both of you" but this time she's with Chimney and Jee in person and she's looking right at them both as Chim grins back and Jee babbles or touches her mother's face in response would kill me off.
If they show the Madney reunion (whether in flashback form or present day) expect there to be a puddle on the floor formerly known as me. Same for the Buckley siblings reunion.
I love the idea of Carlos wearing TKs necklace that I've been seeing around but what I would love the most about it is the moment where Carlos has to give it back to him eventually???? I'd combust.
I’m calling a scuba-diving emergency and I’m so fucking thrilled
theyre filming on water so bucks tsunami trauma is bound to make a comeback right
what are our predictions as to what the metaphorical or literal "wrench" will be that tears apart the BT relationship? 😁
I hope that its either:
1. the will reveal (unlikely but I'd pay to see it) either that she overhears someone/buck talking about or buck himself tells her for whatever reason
2. something pertaining to eddie himself
3. something pertaining to the diaz boys collectively (buck spending all of his free-time with christopher and eddie since eddie is no longer with the 118)
@reallysmartladymariecurie asked me about the similarities between the plum corduroy shirt jacket Buck wears in 2x08 and the bts Oliver posted today of him in a similar jacket.
Ok first up the one from 2x08 - Its important to remember that 2x08 is when we get introduced to the idea of Buck updating himself - we move from Buck1.0 to Buck 2.0.
The plum fine corduroy shirt jacket is paired with tan chino’s white trainers and a white t-shirt and we see him wearing it when he goes to apologise to Tay Kay for “taking advantage of her” before they hook up again in the news van then we see him in Chimneys apartment where Madney and Buck talk about his dating life and the fact that Madney are dating when they’re not dating before Ali calls.
The fun thing about this though is the Chim line ‘you’ve been Buck’d, Buck 2.0 has found himself a Buckette 1.0. Dude, you’re dating yourself’
This is all very centred around the idea of dating - and most interestingly Buck being single again. Now Buck being in white shirts spells disaster - he’s always in a white shirt of some description when bad things happen (Tsunami, blood clots, the beginning of the lawsuit arc, choking in the restaurant etc etc.) I can’t remember who wrote a post on it, was it you @prettyboyandthekid ?? But basically Bucks white shirt in these scenes add up to Ali and Tay Kay not being right for Buck 2.0.
Let’s look at a little bit of colour theory here as well! so the corduroy is plum and plum is in the purple spectrum. The meaning behind purple (not one I’ve had reason to speak much about before!) is interesting, it is generally considered to be a colour of wealth, royalty and religion because it was historically a difficult colour to make and thus expensive. It is also a colour associated with magic, mysticism and wisdom. It is also considered a colour of spiritual growth, enlightenment and self awareness.
The use of corduroy here is interesting because it is a fabric that has a definite nap. The Nap is the descriptive word for the way the fibres align on a fabric to give texture. All fabrics have a nap, but only some have obvious ones such as velvet, moleskin, corduroy. the thing with a napped fabric is that it only feels right in one direction, if you rub in the wrong direction it will feel like the fabric is fighting you - it will feel rough. So the idea of putting Buck in a fabric which can only feel right in one direction for these scenes is an interesting one because he’s fighting against reverting back to his 1.0 self.
The bts Oliver posted, the shirt jacket is very similar, but is not corduroy and the colour looks a bit different - its hard to tell because the lighting is a bit weird, but it looks to be more light burgundy or maroon coloured - and I’m inclined to lean toward maroon now I’ve had chance to look at it for a bit longer!
Colour theory time again! Because maroon is a mix of red and brown tones, you pull meaning from those colours so we are talking - emotional intensity, willpower, courage, rage, anger, determination, wisdom, reliability, confidence and stability. its also interesting that he’s wearing it with a black t-shirt. Black is the absence of colour and is associated with power, strength, seriousness and sadness, it can also represent the idea of barriers (being closed off) as well as endings and beginnings.
Interesting because we know JLH is back and that the Buckley siblings have been reunited, so it leaves me wondering if this outfit is going to be in a scene paralleling the 2x08 scenes - where they are talking about both of their relationships and in the same way that scene in 2x08 represented the start of Madney realising that they are in fact Madney, 5b is like a reverse parallel - that (with Maddies help) Buck realises he doesn’t want to be with Tay Kay - that she isn’t a good fit for Buck 3.0 (are we still at 3.0??) and that being in a relationship shouldn’t be hard work, it should be easy and enjoyable (still work but work you want to do rather than dreading it or going through the motions - don’t forget 2x08 also gave us Mitchell and Thomas and ‘you don’t find it you make it’) in the 2x08 scene he says “being buck 2.0 sucks” perhaps we’re about to get a ‘buckgrade’ as he’s realised that being Buck 3.0 sucks as well - that Buck 3.0 means being in a relationship that isn’t serving him well, perhaps he’s realised Chimneys line from 2x08 about him dating himself is true and this marks the end of Bucktaylor?
I have zero idea if this makes any sense at all but I hope you enjoyed reading!

after careful consideration i’ve decided that buck will indeed be glad eddie’s leaving and eddie won’t understand why and it’ll all lead to them having an under-the-rain screamed confession
