I’m going out on a limb & saying this is my favorite thing Brendan ever tweeted. I just wish it was clearer, thankfully someone’s (*coughJOYcough*) picture taking skills have improved since then.
Forearm alert. FOREARM ALERT!!!
Alright, you can go on with your lives now…
Brendan Coyle Screencap Challenge- Most watched movie/episode?
Well it will be Bates. Errr, which scene have I watched most… Probably Series 2, Episode 8. Her pleading with him to book the registrar, the grin he gives her when he’s done it, the wedding, the wedding night, cooing over them being married and only Mary knowing at Lavinia’s funeral, then the kiss and the ‘I love you’ and all that shizz.
Brendan Coyle Screencap Challenge- Favourite kiss scene
I have two, and guess what, they are Bates and Anna. After watching both kisses numerous times (for research- naturally) I can’t split them.
The first basically confirms to the other servants (if they didn’t know) that Banna were in love and Anna’s words just before it also revealed they were now married. Usually so hidden with his feelings, I know the situation is quite extreme, the way he just tells Anna he loves her without reservation in front of everyone will never fail to make me say ‘awww’ out loud. Every time.
The second is just adorable. At this point, they believe Bates is going to be hung. His desperation as he reaches for her on the table, the tone in his voice as he practically begs the guard to let him touch his wife, the sighs that escape them as contact is made. And then the ‘One kiss, to take with me.’ Le sigh.
The scene before the kiss is perfection, beautifully written and acted. No other actors on the show could have done that script justice. By that, I mean the chemistry between BC and JF was spot on and IMHO no other couple shares that. Just my opinion, folks. Don’t slate me.
And now I can watch both scenes knowing it all works out for them.
