I kinda wanted to dislike this book. Actually, to rephrase that, I was kinda predisposed to dislike this book. I don't like romance for the most part (Austen is the exception to this and romcoms are officially the worst of all things) and the Victorian-ish style of writing kinda grates on me as well, although I admit this is a prejudice from being forced to suffer Charles Dickens back in Year 10. Also admittedly, this is a prejudice that has not really been borne out apart from Dickens and the Great Gatsby, but I digress. I already knew what happened in Jane Eyre and I knew it was... kind of depressing. I mean, I like my woe as much as the next girl, but this book has had like two happy chapters out of twenty eight. I am like two thirds of the way through the book and things do not look set to improve soon.

And yet, I like it. I really like it! Jane is actually a surprisingly modern girl, Mr. Rochester has almost more manpain than Becker, both are flawed but likeable characters, their romance works, Mrs. Rochester is the creepiest ever and asdfjhskl; how is Jane going to get the happy ending, i must know unnnnn.

More depressing than any event in this novel: this shit was written like a hundred years before Twilight. stephenie meyer, how did you manage to set us back further than the fucking victorians

Well if I wasn't in love with Becker before, I would be now. He took his shirt off. Best episode ever, omfg. So much fucking h/c with the poisoning and the bleeding, I cannot even deal. OMG, I WANT A BECKER PLZKTHNX.

Other amazing things in this episode: LESTER, YOU BAMF YOU. Phillip being a douche but oh god he is so brilliantly on the douchebaggery wagon, there should be laws made. If he is a real villain i will give the writers the thumbsdown of shame for being so obv, not even kidding, he has to be a well intentioned extremeist at least. Also, JESS' REACTION TO THE GIRL'S DEATH darling my heart goes out to you. Even worse when you remember she is 19, there's like what 5 years between her and that girl? Less? actually do love jess now.

Not so amazing things: Connor/Abby conflict. Look, Abster, I can see you being upset, but how was Connor supposed to help save the creatures when he was busy saving some kids and THE motherfucking becker, jesus woman calm the fuck down. I mean you fell for him when he couldn't talk his way out of a paper bag, you expected him to be different now why? Not that this excuses you Mr Temple, Burton just said 'kill rex!' and you were NOT all 'hey dude that is not cool', what. If there is an issue I expected you to come down HARD on Abby's side of things, it would be this one. Look i am calling ooc on this okay, deal with it.

But at the end of the day: Becker, minus a shirt. Winnerrr.
