Dangerously Chloe - Confused

Post by LargoJr » Fri Oct 19, 2018 6:51 pm

I get it... Threes Company, Moonlighting, Cheers...

Will they, when will they... blah blah blah.. you can't spend that resource too quickly.. I get that...

But look, you've already established that Chloe is suffering, that this will eventually kill her. And yet, she's chained up in the basement while trapped in a stupor of incoherence... While the newly transformed co-leads dither thru shallow, selfish worries and indulgences.

You've already established that Teddy was willing to risk his life to save Chloe... so... why exactly the delay now?

Because the one half that is probably capable of doing the deed without getting himself killed seems to be gay.
Please, don't come to me expecting me to fix your problems.

And in a wider plot sense as soon as Teddy and Chloe do the deed the contract should be fulfilled. Now the original plan - Chloe would kill Teddy and take his soul to Hell - has been complicated by Teddy's ascension but it would still take away any reason Hell would have for letting Chloe stay with Teddy.

But since Teddy doesn't seem to be that bothered about Chloe any more and since he's got no shortage of boy/girlfriends would he really be that upset if Chloe left?

Not accurate.

Chloe stays with Teddy for the rest of his life, according to the terms of his contract.

The only reason their first pairing would have completed that contract was because he’d die in the act. Hell is big on irony like that.

But yeah. Chloe stays with Teddy for as long as he’s alive. If he can survive mating with her, they’re together forever.

Fair enough. But that just makes things even worse for Chloe.

We already know she's the jealous type and now she's bound for life to somebody who may now be an immortal and who, judging by the fact that he's barely noticed her plight in the basement, has no apparent special interest in her and can barely resist sleeping with anything with a pulse (do Reaper's have hearts/pulses?)

Which admittedly fits the trend for Chloe to get things wrong by accident but would hardly count as a happy ending.

...I'm confused, too. The comment that "at least you have a backup" was presented as silly and insensitive, but the fact that the two seem to have a single consciousness means that Teddy really does have nothing to fear from the encounter. Or would he miss having a male body that much? Because it sure never seemed that way before.

After all this time, you're still expecting logic? You're still expecting plot?

I think that ship has sailed, complete with a kick-line. We're all porn, all the time, here, with occasional stupid jokes thrown in.

The other two *C-verse comics delivered on both fronts. Is it really so much to want the same for DC?

To want? No. To expect, after being denied both for so long... yes. In fact, I would guess that the producers have concluded that the good writing of those comics led to their losing popularity, and then p0rn is the way back.
