It took her a second to understand what she was seeing, to draw the right conclusion from it, and then she felt both angry and ashamed. Small wonder he didn’t like her.
She was the competition.
Adult, polyamory. Peggy realises some things – and because she’s Peggy, she then does something about it. Totally in character, this could easily be outtakes. Even the modern-day epilogue warmed my heart.
It’s like a dance. She already knows all the steps. Step one, into personal space. Step two, shimmy. Step three, shirt off. Step four, pants. But where she leads, Lito doesn’t follow. It throws off her rhythm.
So it’s a relief when Daniela sees the man in Lito’s bed, and realizes she’s been stepping to the wrong music this whole time. There won’t be hands in her clothes, trying to stir up feelings that have never been about other people. There won’t be declarations of love she’ll never be able to return in the same way.
She’s always liked dancing by herself better anyway.
Adult, polyamory, asexuality. This is everything I could have wished for and more – not only do we get to see how Daniela fits with Lito & Hernando (and it’s beautiful!), we even see how Dani & Hernando learn about the cluster. Seriously wonderful!
As far as The Inside vids go, this take on the weird relationship between Rebecca, Web and Paul manages to not whig me out too much – it very much showcases that this is Rebecca’s story. And, as the newspaper headline says, “girl saves self”. Music by Depeche Mode.
