I count six ways I could kill you right now. And the only reason you’re still drawing breath is because I’m trying so hard not to do that sort of thing anymore.
So you’re a lab tech?
Myka, I can’t!
I’M NOT QUESTIONING YOUR VALUE. I’M CURIOUS ABOUT YOUR MOTIVES
The second gif, Myka’s reaction; she KNOWS Helena is not so selfish, that she’s noble. She knows it better, because she knows Helena better than anyone else, ever HG herself. Then, years back, she didn’t know what “I can’t” was all about, but now she has it all figured out, and she sees Helena’s struggle, and feels sorry for her; and she will not rant, she’s not even disappointed or angry, she will take her hand and lead her through it. Because she knows that HER HELENA is somewhere inside and she just needs this little push to figure it all out too.
well fuck you very much. But also accurate and meshes with a few things Jaime and Jo have said about the place their characters are in and the awareness and compassion they have for each other (i.e. the fact that they are stupidly noble even when they shouldn’t be)
