Honestly if this is a more common occurrence of Marion “breaking down” then I fear for their relationship. But props for Lois for her stern “take no carp” attitude. It takes a lot of patience to deal with someone who is having a moment.Gameb18oy wrote: Personally, I think it's more interesting analyzing how Lois is acting. She seems kinda used to this, and the idea that this was pretty much in keeping in how he probably acted as a human does make it a little more enjoyable to read. Also, seems Marion is taking well to his climbing abilities. Pretty lame as far as animal superpowers he could have gotten (Do squirrels get the cheek pouch thing? Maybe he'll find a use for that if so) but at least he's finding some uses for it.
There is so much to notice from how she’s handling this situation. The first question she asks is “Why are you naked again?” (In her mind she probably asking “Why are you so embarrassing?”) which tells me that she stills sees Marion as more human than squirrel or want to anyway. We come a long way from her roughing him up in the woods.
It is also worth questioning why she’s out there looking for him? If this is still lunch break then did something happen that would compel her to look for him or is this a routine check-in to see how he’s doing? Does she know that he’s been having a hard time because it would be obvious that he would be. We all knew this was going to be hard. I would have loved to see her reaction to Miles’s announcement.
Judging from the hands on hips I have a feeling she’s about to drop some tough love on him. I can’t wait to see that.
