*total spoilers!! If you haven’t seen New Moon yet and want to remain a virgin, skip today! Oh and trust me, you’ll LOVE IT!*
I JUST saw you in New Moon and I gotta say it: when Edward left I didn’t miss you at all. Not one second. Your character was meant to be absent and he was, rightfully so. It also helped that Taylor Lautner played the pants off Jacob Black (pun SO intended) leaving me whispering (not so quietly) “DO IT! DO IT!” when he leans in TWICE to kiss Bella and even though she cock blocks him BOTH times I sat there WANTING it to work out for him, wanting Bella to love him, and to CHOOSE HIM not that dumb guy Edward, who left her in the middle of the forest because he was too much of a pansy to own up to his weaknesses and admit that even thought she was a total danger magnet it was worth it to be with her no matter the cost. But he couldn’t and so he left and Jacob Black stepped in and made me and probably every other Team Edward gal rethink her team allegiance.
I also gotta throw it out there and say I think just maybe Taylor and Kristen’s chemistry as Jacob and Bella is was better and more believable than you two as Edward and Bella. Kristen and Taylor are believable as friends with a serious undercurrent of tension, there wasn’t one second where I was cringing or questioning their relationship. I just wanted her to end up with him because he was so wonderful.
BUUTTT when Edward finally did show up again in I was glad, you were back and it was time to set up the love triangle to end all love triangles and to crush my sanity with the proposal at the end! Just when I’m beginning to think I’m not THAT big of a fan of you, you remind me I’m crazy and throw me back into my crazy obsession all over again.
Shall we do this again in June 2010?
PS Seriously, the tweed? The wingtips? The collared shirt? You looked like an old man not a high school senior. Ugh. Styling/Wardrobe FAIL!
PPS Oh and throwing in the Remember Me trailer was so genius, you sneaky jerk.
It’s after 4 in the morning and I need to marinate on this some more… but tell me what did YOU think. Did you turn in your Team Edward card for membership to Team Jacob (I hear they’re sponsored by The Gap!), Did you totes forget about Edward? Seriously, what was with the suit?
