Betty McRae, Bomb Girls
"Here’s the deal, ladies: you do fine embroidery, you can assemble a time fuse. If you sew buttons, you can thread a detonator. If you can pour tea, you can pour amatol. It’s no big whoop. Except some folks don’t see it that way. The guys are crapping bullets, afraid they might not get their easy-street jobs back after you’ve helped them win the war."
#this episode is so hard to watch because it is SO HARD for them to be living it#I WILL NEVER BE OVER THIS FUCKING SCENE
↪ [6/7] scenes : "i’m trying something a little… different right now."
#so nate doesn’t know who she really is #myka does #myka always has #and helena trying something a little different #it sounds like an experiment #one that’s sure to fail #because how can you possibly have anything like a fulfilling relationship with someone who doesn’t know you? #hg is there for the kid #it’s how she relates to this entire experiment #this experience that’s only made worthwhile because of the child #when in front of her she has myka #who knows everything about her and is still sticking around #still wants to know hg #still wants to be there #it’s fucking heartbreaking when you think that helena is basically locking away the part of her that myka understands the most #in order to indulge in the mediocrity of suburban existence #because she thinks that’s what she wants and needs #when what she really wants and needs is myka #ugh#BECAUSE FOR ME IT BASICALLY IS THE POINT OF THE ENTIRE EPISODE #H.G. says ‘I finally feel like a belong’ AND IN THE VERY NEXT BREATH ADMITS SHE IS LYING ABOUT WHO SHE IS #EMILY belongs NOT HELENA #and to me no matter how painful this episode was #THAT WAS THE POINT #H.G. WELLS DOES NOT CANNOT EXIST OUTSIDE THE WAREHOUSE #HELENA cannot exist outside the Warehouse. outside of her relationship with the Warehouse #and by extension her relationship with MYKA #and it may reach into my chest and rip out my heart #but i love that #i love Helena Wells’ admits her entire existence only makes sense if its with Myka#hearing lies is no easier than speaking them #and the pain that is so SO evident in Myka’s eyes and in her hesitations #is matched by the pain that Helena has been trying to convince herself doesn’t exist anymore #and I still don’t know how to talk about my feelings about the words they say out loud and what they really mean #’I feel like I belong’ is not the same as ‘I belong’ #’I can’t very well tell him’ is exactly the opposite of ‘you are the person who knows me best’ #’does he know who you really are’ is nearly but not quite ‘how can you ignore that I do know who you really are?’
