Us: Is there going to be a thing?
Us: Should we be worried about the thing?
Us: Are you serious about the thing?
Us: OMG! I’m afraid of the thing!!
Shonda: Why would you be afraid of the thing? I never said anything about the thing!
This is quite accurate.
It’s my birthday on Wednesday.
I honestly don’t know what to do with my self right now..
What I ultimately took from all of these twitter interactions today was that several different conversations were happening all at the same time. Sex scenes vs. Intimacy.
I believe what Shonda was saying is that the actual sex scenes are filmed at a level the actors/actresses are comfortable with, not that they get to choose what happens in said scene, but their comfort level is taken into account. (It’s possible the longer the person has been on the show the more comfortable they are at expressing their discomfort, that’s why we have seen less with the oldies as the years have gone on. Except Sandra/Kevin who seem all ‘let’s do this!’ The newer the actor the more they may be willing to do. *just a thought* )
I also believe, separately from the sex scene discussion, that Shonda is saying the lack of onscreen intimacy is purposeful. She didn’t outright say it, but it was heavily implied that there is a reason for it. That they have them holding back because the characters aren’t quite to the point of full comfort with each other yet. They are trying, but are both still tentative and protecting themselves. So far, Callie and Arizona’s vulnerable moments have been few and far between, but in those moments the intimacy isn’t lacking, imo.
This is a just looooooonnnggg fuckking story they are telling, and it’s frustrating to watch, but I guess it’s true to rebuilding what Calzona have lost.
Shonda is playing the long game with Calzona.
Or not. I don’t even know anymore. I have a headache. :-)
