I wrote this really lovely poetic reply and then I DELETED IT BY ACCIDENT JESUS CHRIST
so this is take two and it’s no where near as good as the first reply so I apologize.
I agree nine thousand percent with you. seeing meryl dance with someone else—without her needing him to protect her or guide her, it sort of takes him aback, and you can see it in his face when he’s in the background of her shots. we all know that charlie laughs loudly (always) for no reason, but I noticed during the reading of meryl’s scores during disney week, charlie isn’t leaning against the railing like the rest of the celebs, he’s like halfway between the edge of the skybox and where meryl and maks are, and he laughs at the commentary like he’s the one receiving it.
do I find that telling?
there’s also that interview with the four of them after the switch up, where they’re being quizzed at the rink, and after meryl and sharna give wrong answers, charlie’s a little snarky (which is out of character for him) and you can just s e e maks’ eyebrows jump up in surprise.
he’s used to being the one at meryl’s side and now he’s not—and it’s weird for him. it’s muscle memory, you know? seventeen years and all of a sudden things are different? meryl doesn’t need acting classes to emote with her new partner. *z formation snap*
charlie is pouting on the inside always. it’s like he didn’t want meryl when he had her and now someone else is playing with his proverbial toys (this is a terrible example what am I doing) and now he’s put out about it.
NOTE: THESE ARE MY OWN OPINIONS PLEASE DO NOT JUMP DOWN MY THROAT. THANK YOU.
Well..I’m not going to jump down your throat…I’m going to jump up and applaud! I saw exactly the same thing during the GMA interview quiz segment. Charlie was snippy…even I took notice…when he said something like “see how many nos I’m giving you” and Maks looked over and raised his eyebrow as if to say..wtf bro?….and many of his reactions, which can easily be found reblogged all over tumblr are quite telling…especially the ones from week 3 when she did the foxtrot…and the one from Disney week. His reactions speak volumes. Sometimes you don’t realize what you truly have before you until someone appreciates what you obviously didn’t. Of course, my opinions. But, my gut tells me that Charlie may be having some issues with it.
YAY!!!! I feel less alone now. Charlie is definitely jealous and I hope it makes him wake up and realize that letting Meryl go would be a colossal mistake. I agree so much! Also during that video, Meryl and Charlie were using their ESP connection in order to answer the questions. Did you pick up on how often they locked eyes?
I’m not even going to bother adding my thoughts because I agree 1000% with the above.
