*spoilers for tua s2.*
That conversation with Vanya, Klaus, and Allison is completely imbalanced. Vanya has no memory of their past with one another. She’s an outside perspective looking in, a reason to shame the Hargreeves dysfunctional relationships when Klaus asks if Five will be hot when he grows up and of Alluther.
I’m sure the conversation would’ve been completely different if Vanya had her memory. Kinda like the conversation with Diego and Luther. That felt a little more natural than the OOC conversation with 3, 4 & 7.
I mean, they are aware of their dysfunctional relationships, but it’s how they grew up, and that scene with them just shows that outsiders wouldn’t understand. Vanya having no memory just shows this to be true, and a conversation that isn’t for anyone but them.
I don’t necessarily care what you ship or who you hate, but I do know what reality and fiction is, I am a writer. So, I don’t care if Alluther ends up canon, or somehow Five & Vanya acknowledge their past feelings for one another or if Klaus & Ben or Diego have a moment with one another.
The whole conversation was just plain dumb to add to their established characters and the concept of who they are. They’re in their 30’s, and they’re probably more understanding to one another’s weirdness than anyone on the outside. And if anything, if they really thought it was a huge fucking issue, they could’ve went to therapy to sort that shit out, but it’s not how they see their relationships, which is the point of who they are.
They are a group of dysfunctional people with powers put in a house, dressed in school uniforms, abused, traumatized, blamed for the death of their brother, and emotionally stunted as they grow into adults.
They aren’t remotely healthy people, and trying to make them would be ridiculous. The pseudo-incest is barely the biggest issue of their individualities, and barely the focus of the plot.
So, idk…I guess they tried to reveal the weirdness, but…all they did was write an unnecessary scene with an amnesiac who is practically a stranger in her own body.
