Hottest. Space. Marriage. Ever.
Amanda’s watching the home movies in her bedroom: Lacy gets shy about
the camera and puts Zoë in front of it, and Zoë — wearing a gold
infinity pin on her sailordress
— talks more crazy cult talk about how their lives are about to
totally change, and also that she is a very pretty girl. Amanda weeps,
and then Daniel shows up in the bedroom looking drunk and nuts, and
without prelude he asks why she even wants to go to the ceremony. She’s
not sure why. Daniel flops down on the bed by her — this scene is the
best scene in the whole episode, I think — and nearly starts crying
when he tries to explain. “I don’t want to think. I just feelawful,
and angry, and numb, and…” Amanda asks who on earth he’s mad at, and
she cries listening to him: “Everybody. And everything. Myself, and the
world. Her.” Amanda can’t even really hear him say that last one. It’s
too true. It’s too unbearably disgusting.
You know, whenever anybody on this show goes on about how such a sweet innocent child (whether they’re talking about Zoe, or Lacy, or Ben, or whoever) couldn’t possibly be a terrorist, I wonder if they’ve evermet any teenagers.
