Fear the Walking Dead
, "El Matadero," just further fanned the flames of the Nick/Troy I've been seeing this season. Troy saying Nick stayed because "You love me. We have so much in common..." Nick being a terrible influence on his terrible (boy)friend, getting Troy drunk and high, and the two of them wandering around in a haze together, Troy following Nick's lead at all times though he does try to be the voice of reason more than once. (When Troy is your voice of reason, things are bad
.) That tight, comforting hug amidst the zombie stream, with Troy even cradling Nick's head a bit. Topped off with Nick walking funny the next day as he and Troy tell Madison they're not going with her.
And then I found out on Talking Dead
that Mercedes Masohn, the actress who plays Ofelia,
ships them hard
. So hard. And "Trick" was discussed pretty openly by Chris Hardwick as well. I'm so amused. And wondering if Fear the Walking Dead
will actually go there since these days things are possible.
I watched them with a friend. Here are what I thought were our most amusing observations:
Cowsharky: "Madison" ought to be the name for all M hurricanes from now on
Viridian5: Once Madison blows in, almost no one survives.
Cowsharky: ok I want a web series of snarky gate girl
Viridian5: How much shit does she deal with manning that gate? Everybody has an excuse to get in.
Cowsharky: betcha she worked in retail before the apocalypse
Viridian5: Or as a waitress
Cowsharky: speaking of boyfriends
Viridian5: Troy: "We have so much in common. Wanna bone at our next stop?"
Viridian5: Hope there's not a child in [that ball pit].
Viridian5: Alicia, you're not doing well
Viridian5: For once Nick isn't the child making Mom cry.
Viridian5: Troy's out there freaking out the Mexicans.
Viridian5: Nooooooooo, Nick
Cowsharky: Madison: I love all my children equally...Nick, Troy, and (looks at smudged name on hand), Anita
Viridian5: My second husband's kid... what was his name again?
Cowsharky: still, fucking Troy was trying to be the voice of reason there
Viridian5: When Troy is your voice of reason, it's all gone to shit.
Viridian5: Did Madison spike Ofelia's head?
Viridian5: Didn't Madison give him the option of coming along to see Ofelia at the ranch?
Viridian5: Oh good. She let him mercykill his own daughter. Geez, Madison.
Viridian5: Nick, you're being a terrible influence on your terrible boyfriend.
Viridian5: What are you paying for this with?
Viridian5: WTF. Brain stem?
Viridian5: The first taste is free!
Viridian5: Nick is too smashed to appreciate Troy taking on the unfamiliar role of voice of reason.
Viridian5: Nick, you're being a terrible influence on your terrible boyfriend!
Viridian5: We're going walking with the dead. While high, because why not?
Viridian5: Nick, you're gonna make Troy worse!
Viridian5: awwwwwww, hug!
Viridian5: This is romance in the zompoc
Cowsharky: Troy even did that head cradle in that hug
Viridian5: It's love
Viridian5: new girl Diana: "We're going mining!"
Cowsharky: wanna time how long it takes until the first Alicia/Pickaxe Girl fic?
Viridian5: I dunno. I'm still waiting on a decent Nick/Troy fic
Viridian5: What is with that walk, Nick?
Cowsharky: it's the morning after sex walk
Viridian5: That's what I was thinking.
for Talking Dead
Viridian5: Pasta keeps fairly well
Viridian5: On eating pork and beans in the zompoc. Infected: "The gas from this thing smells like it's dead, so let's not bite it."
Cowsharky: you can get pork and beans and spam in the apoc. esp spam
Viridian5: Canned things would be good for a few years. Afterward, people will be desperate enough to try eating them anyway.
Viridian5: Troy: "My boyfriend is taking me places!"
Viridian5: Ruben, they're boyfriends
Viridian5: hashtag "Trick". So much better than Noy.
Viridian5: Mercedes: "That's hot!"
Cowsharky: the infected are shippers too, that's why they didn't bother Trick
Viridian5: Mercedes Masohn, one of us! One of us!
Cowsharky: so gonna miss her on Talking
cuz she's so fun
Cowsharky: I wonder if the show might have Trick cuz everyone's being so open about shipping them.
Viridian5: These days it could go either way.
Viridian5: *snerk* Troy is already kind of Madison's son.
Cowsharky: k, Mercedes is shipping Trick harder than everyone else combined
Viridian5: She ships it *hard*
