"She is determined never to become one of those victims, even subconsciously. So she’s an expert shot and she takes martial arts, and it’s all because she knows how bad it can be." - Hart Hanson, Pilot Commentary
"Margulies played Fantasy Alicia perfectly. She captured Will’s projection and his desire to see her vulnerable. Eyes filled with unshed tears… The reality of Alicia (in a much more sensible, dark suit) is that she has steel in her spine. Will thought he could anticipate her response (the titular “Decision Tree”), but she outmaneuvered and not only anticipated his questions but implicated David Lee and L/G while she was at it." (x)
#i’ve seen a good amount of complaining about this (mainly will’s imagined questioning) and i just ????????? #how can you not appreciate how great this/it is like???????? #like his head obvs isnt a great place rn #and who knows if hes always had this image of her or if its just changing now#but the image he has of her made him forget how good she is and he was actually surprised it didnt play out how he thought #like l o l dude u wish pls shes in warrior princess mode she aint got time 4 it #and the way i see it his imagined questioning was basically a conversation w/ himself #so the ‘i loved you’ were his own feelings reflected from her #and he was already emotional when his imagined alicia was too so the ‘i dont like it when ur weak’ was more to himself i would say #this is all over the place but the pointis HE HAS THIS IDEA OF HER THAT IS V WRONG AND WILL/IS STARTING TO BITE HIM IN THE ASS #AND ALSO when they were both recalling the meeting w/ walter (cant remember his name whoops) #his recolection was different from hers (what she was wearing etc.) #and that maks you wonder how much of what he called was right u feel (specifically the ‘this is the happiest i;ve ever been)#I’LL STOP NOW IM SORRY I JUST REALLY LOVE THIS SHOW/EPISODE BYE
