Movies and shows have long held audiences spellbound as we get caught up in the storyline, in the characters, and in that world. People find escape in them. People find familiarity in them. It’s often comforting to find a part of yourself in your favorite show just because it makes you feel normal. And don’t lie--everyone feels like an outcast or a weirdo at some point in their lives. But then you see your determination in that girl’s eyes as she takes down the school bully. Or felt the same anxiety as the man who’s running after the love of his life. You’ve laughed at the same jokes together and disliked the same characters.
I’m not going to talk about bad directors or queer death tropes or actor contracts (even though there is SO much I want to scream about. Check out the viral video that explains it best). Because those are all things out of my control at the moment and nothing can be done to take back what I’m feeling now, even two weeks later. Instead, I’m just going to talk about how I feel. I’m not angry like I was on that Thursday night, I’m just tired. I’m so emotionally drained, more so than I’ve ever been in my entire life. I understand that having plot twists and being edgy is something shows have to do to keep viewers, but I just wish it didn’t have to come at the expense of such a great character.

And most importantly, you’ve seen the struggles and the grief you’ve experienced in your life reflected onscreen, even if the situations aren’t always exactly the same as those depicted. Pain is pain, after all. There is no way to measure it or compare it. We’ve grieved over character deaths just as much as the other characters on the show. Because we connected to them and losing them was just as real as if we had lost them in real life. They were real to us. They will always be real to us. Decades down the line, my grandmother can still remember how devastated she was when Bambi’s mother got shot. She almost left the movie theater when it first came out.

PerfectCiara finally demanding what the hell is or is not or was going on between Dyson and Bo? Check. Creeping supernatural being in the form of an obnoxious ten-year-old? Check. Heartbreakingly precious Dyson and Kenzi moment? Check. Body switching? Check. Kris Holden-Ried&rsquo s hilarious portrayal of Kenzi trapped in Dyson&rsquo s body? Checkmate. Unquestionably the best episode of the problematic season two, Original Skin was enlightening, painful, emotionally angsty, and all kinds of funny. And yet, as usual, the anchor in this episode is Bo and Kenzi who prove that, even when they&rsquo re wearing someone else&rsquo s skin, it&rsquo s the bond between them that holds their Faemily together.
