# I gif'd this scene because there's something about watching Miles get dressed down by all his former colleagues/friends/associates that is j
# ust…incredibly satisfying. And validating. And I love how basically everyone's first reaction is a variation of MILES. YOU F**KED UP MY LIFE
# and he always wants something and it's just…ugh. (I can picture him tracking down Charlie 5 years from now when she's settled somewhere - fo
# und a niche for her skill set - and of course she keeps in touch and SURE once a year she heads down to see him on his bday…but she doesn't
# work for him anymore. She's retired from that life. She has a job and people. HER OWN PEOPLE. And an office and a schedule. And you know wha
# t's not on the schedule? Wandering around for months trying to track someone down. Or blowing sh*t up without the proper sanctions…but Miles
# is all - 'Hey kid you sort of owe me'…which he quickly revises (after Charlie frowns at him) to 'FINE. I'll owe you one. Just listen to me f
# or a sec. It's about your mom…' ). I love how quiet he gets when they talk about all the sh*t he pulled. Never interrupts. Never defends him
# self. Just stands there and stares off into the distance…except for when he can't help looking over to see how Charlie's taking it. For the
# first 10 episodes it's like Miles is holding his breath waiting for that day. That MOMENT when Charlie finally turns her back on him. (Coz h
# e knows that family can turn on each other because Ben and Rachel did it to him and he did it to Bass. And karma has to catch up with him ev
# entually)…And it just never comes….And I love how animated Drexel is. And that he's a hand talker. Oh this dude enjoys having an audience (…
# and now my imagination just took that to a dirty place - THANKS ALOT BRAIN)…Slightly off topic: But one of my favourite things is that being
# a 'Traitor' is THE worst thing post-Blackout. Not a murderer or a torturer. No. The guy who turns his back on his men/family is the lowest o
# f the low. And fair enough - with not many people left to trust you'd want to be sure the people you do trust to have your back…Still it mak
# s you wonder how Miles THOUGHT dropping in on Drexel would go. I mean srsly. Miles your plans suck. Especially the ones that are basically -
# just rocking up and hoping no one shoots you…You know I think I might have to Gif Retro Team Miles and New Team Miles. I think that might be
# a thing I need to do. I love that this is the episode were Charlie loses faith and Miles (after getting yelled at by Aaron) has to find it.

# Who did more damage Miles or Monroe? ...I find that so hard to answer. Because on the one hand Monroe has all these resources at
# his disposal. He's got a f**king army of Miles trained soldiers. Hangers of basscopters. Nuclear weapons. Anthrax...His people are
# conscripting children/teens. Lead interrogator is one of the top spots in the Militia...but how much of that is Miles too? And if you're the
# reason the Big Bad is doing his worst to mustache twirl & deserve to be loathed - wouldn't that mean Miles has done the most damage?
# Like the DoD having Ben and Rachel's tech in the first place. They didn't weaponise it. They didn't point it at anyone. But the DoD
# wouldn't have it without them. The power didn't need to be off for 15 years. Except if they fixed it Danny would die. So Miles works Bass
# up into this fevor about brotherhood and fighting the good fight and they build this great thing until without warning (in Bass' POV) Miles
# turns on him. Plots out a full on conspiracy to take him out. When what - talking wouldn't have done the trick? Bass isn't a
# rapid dog that needed to be put down. He's a f**king person Miles. You're person. That doesn't mean you get to decide when he dies.
# And I love Charlie for staring Miles down from the porch. She doesn't have to move any closer. He knows she's there.
# And I like how unsure he looks in the 2nd gif as he glances over at her and how that shifts as soon as Rachel slides in to plead Charlie's
# case. He just reverts back to default grumpiness and shuts Rachel down. OH...you want me around? The guy who used to torment you
# no? I didn't think so...And I really like what Rachel's trying to do here because she's sort of afraid of Charlie - of not seeing the little
# girl she left behind - and for better or worse Miles seems pretty tight with her kid. Whatever he did to her in the past he seems to have do
# ne the right thing by Charlie...It also reminds me of Miles saying Rachel needs Charlie. Because of that unsaid fact that Miles might need h
# er too. And I can't believe we didn't even get a goodbye scene...This is always going to be one of my fav Charlie-Rachel episodes.

It would be better for her if you were here.

# Before you start yes yes yes I KNO...he probably said 'your'. 9 times out of 10 I would agree with you but this week has been ridiculous
# and I'm feeling fanciful. So I'm choosing to see it as a slip of the tongue that he swiftly disguises becoz 1) If he awards Charlie the fami
# ly label he can't take it back. 2) Charlie wanted to kill him about 10 minutes ago. He probably shouldn't push his luck.
# 3) His life is simpler (LOL HA) if Miles is his only family...so there. Judge me if you must. (You can just pretend it's bad grammar.)
# And I sort of ended up gifing most of this scene - becoz it gives all the exposition for what happens next. But whatever it's still abridged
# I liked Adam so much in this episode. He was such a liar-y liar and it made him so much more interesting...And I love Charlie here
# (I always love Charlie but) look at her being all HBIC w/ Bass. As soon as she takes that wanted poster from him with her mom's name
# on it she shifts gears. I love how fast she adapts to things. She was supposedly out for blood (retribution) but it's almost like she was ju
# st looking for trouble and that trouble took the form of Monroe. But now she has a mission again. She has to get back to her family.
# And Rachel's accusation that Charlie let herself get charmed or whatever by Monroe? ...omg. If Rachel only knew. I love how she treats
# him because it throws him off completely. She's not afraid (like most ppl are). She's not interested in listing all his sins (like most ppl
# are). Mostly it seems like Charlie just wishes he'd go away. She's had her fun trying to assassinate him it's home time now.
# And he's all but I need to come with you - and to her credit she doesn't laugh in his face. Coz like hell is she going anywhere with him.
# There's this little thing called stranger danger. Also - Common sense. And I love how she dares him to be the kind of man people think he
# is and shoot her in the back. And he's got no response to that crazy Matheson logic - to prefer death to talking/company.
# (I believe there was at least 1 writer who knew exactly how many people would ship these two. There are no coincidences.)
# (Don't you tell me the title of this episode only relates to Titus and his craziness)

This is personal, right? You and Monroe.

He murdered half my family, so yeah. You might say that.

# I know I'm a broken record about this - but these 3 would have made a spectacularly dysfunctional little family.
# I think the writers jumped the gun by having Charlie and Connor hook up. Without that there could still be doubt over whether Charlie's
# secretly a Monroe. And all that tension and those lingering looks and seeming inability to be seperated for long could be explained away
# as us misinterpreting their connection...you know the way we (cough) misinterpret Marlie's? And really we've just been watching father
# and daughter attempt to figure each other out...and why there's something so familiar about each other. I mean I could have signed on
# for that kind of canon Bachel. Charlie being Rachel's biggest secret. Rachel having leverage over Monroe this whole time and not using it.
# As Monroe is slowly won over by everything Charlie is and isn't...and it would have been awesome and I'm just going to shut up now.
# I wanted to do this because these three are on a collison course because of Rachel and 'the power'...not Miles. It doesn't really have
# much to do with Miles except that Bass is in a really dark place when he finally meets Charlie (still manages a smile tho).
# And if they'd just let these 3 percolate a little bit...if they'd trusted Tracy & Liz & David to knock it out of the park without needing
# a war or Miles or the nanites to keep the energy up...I mean Rachel surrendered to Monroe for Charlie's sake (twice) and Charlie
# turns around and returns the favor in S2. She doesn't come back for Miles. She comes back for her mom. DESPITE their relationship.
# Despite the fact that every time they talk it gets a little bit clearer how far away they really are. And Rachel freaking saves Monroe for C
# harlie. They deserved to be the focus more. As awesome as Miles is (sometimes). As dead as Danny is. There was more to talk about.

I’m sure there’s a lot about your mom you don’t know.

# I am reminded of that 'My So Called Life' (epic show btw) quote - You're so beautiful it hurts to look at you.
# He's so annoyed too. Like omg. Charlie no crying in the subway. Stop looking at me like that...there's dust in my eye now.
# He almost lost HER. He's so freaked out he's had her in a 3hr timeout for daring to get shot in the head saving his sorry ass...He didn't me
# an to care this much. But god help him he loves her. And she just got shot for him. And she's grinning away and acting like it was nothing.
# She's lost her father...Maggie...she saved a boatload of orphans and kidnapped kids...and got branded for the trouble...she agreed to
# compromise herself to save a friend (Nora)...she's refused to put up with his crap from day one...and still after all of it she can look at
# him like THAT. Like he hung the moon and the stars. Like he's never let her down not even for a second. Like maybe he's the man her
# father sent her to find. The one who would save her (by saving Danny). And it hurts to look at her. Because no one looks at him like that.
# And all those doubts he had are gone. He's choosing Charlie. He couldn't live with anything else.
# And she so would have been the kid who broke this bone and fractured that bone and still would have beamed up at him as he signed her
# cast. Waving off his concern if she forgot to move carefully only to end up wincing. Lips drawn tight. Insisting she hadn't meant to fall of
# f the roof/out of the tree/trampoline into the neighbours yard/collide with that kid at soccer practice/slip on that patch of ice outside
# the porch. But whatever. She's heard scars are cool. And wearing a cast gets her out of gym.And there's a cute guy a few years ahead
# of her that carries her bag around and helps her with her crutches/sling/ankle brace at lunch and she thinks he might ask her out.
# So it's win-win. And I love that she can tell he feels like he let her down. This sort of reminds me of Miles raving to Rachel about that
# guitar pick. Except this is better. You can see how much she believes in him and how desperate he is to be worthy of that belief.

# I always meant to re-gif this once i got my hands on the bluray version...and awh these colours remind me of Nikas colouring.
# Nika if you're reading this (which I highly doubt) I miss your gifs. And your squee and your general Nika-ness. Come back. Now.
# I didn't include it in the set because it seemed a bit arbitrary - but there's this look Rachel shoots Monroe (or Charlie or both) before th
# is kicks off which just reeks of NOT IT...And then she just strides off and Charlie's response is similar but more like
# while she's aware she's going to get stuck with Monroe. She's refusing to actually pick him. Leaving the boys to be like OKAY. We'll just
# uh...HEY can you wait up? And I just wish we could have seen more of the dynamics of Marlie plus Bachel. Even in the dream episode
# it would have been epic. Aaron and Rachel walk into the motel room to find Bass and Charlie have decided that Miles is having a movie night
# ...if only they can decide on a movie. And a snack choice. And convince Miles why they need pineapple on their pizza. Why its a basic
# human right for them to have liberal pizza toppings. And two kinds of meat is not enough. And Miles isn't in town chasing Rachel he's
# there for a his and Bass' highschool reunion...Which Charlie is determined to go to to meet the legendary Emma.
# Or even god a road trip with those 4. Bass and Rachel ignoring each other. Charlie and Rachel trying not to get into moral particulars.
# Miles trying to pretend he's by himself. Bass and Charlie shooting each other looks in the mirror because Miles has missed the exit and some
# one has to tell him and whoever it is will get yelled at...I just...I wanted more of this ridic family without ridic plot points.
# Charlie Miles Bass and Rachel hiding in a subway system...talking about Ben. Because it's Ben's birthday. And Ben has had some
# memorable birthdays. And even Rachel cracks a smile...And my current theory (which is awful) is that S2 would have been better
# if Miles had left in episode 1 and come back around episode 9...maybe even later. Just done his own thing. Maybe bumped into Tom
# and Jason. And let Charlie Bass and Rachel work their sh*t out. Coz his presence actively made it worse.
