...Because the hatesex would be epic
That is all.scarletts_awry
will be posting soon to explain the amazingness of this pairing in greater detail, and so I'm leaving that to her because I know she'll do a much better job of it than I could, but I felt the need to go on the record and state my position.
Erm, as it were.
Yes, we're still all over the Nate/Sophie, but now we're all over the Nate/Sterling too, and there are a ton of reasons why.
Also, I just watched all of the Sterling scenes in "The Two Horse Job," and I'm a little bit giddy all over again. Especially about the final scene when Sterling is waiting for Nate in the office and OMG, the way they look
at each other.
Also also, Sterling is completely underappreciated, and he's one of my absolute favorite characters on the show. John Rogers, and Mark Sheppard with his brilliant acting job, have done a very smart thing with the character by making him a true antagonist for Nate, and he's done that by making Sterling sympathetic and smart and the one character on the show who's entirely comfortable with the truth -- which is what makes him so dangerous. Truth is a weapon, and Nate can't stand the truth. Sterling uses it with the precision of a dagger.
He's also, as he describes himself in "The Second David Job," an "utter self-serving bastard," but in a very sensible, practical way.
And I do love him.Epic
. I'm telling you. And scarletts_awry
will tell you.
I am also refraining here from going into rhapsodies about Nate's hats. But, oh, Nate's hats. And I have an embarrassing fondness for his Bob Gibson routine in "The Two Horse Job." So yes, I also watched the poker game again. scarletts_awry
is completely shocked by that, I'm sure.
