Furthering the story?
So I keep seeing commenters here (and elsewhere) excited about the possibility, even the totally obvious inevitability, of a romantic relationship between Toni and Colson, as well as between Janette and Delmond.
Personally I don’t see either, so far anyway. Doesn’t mean I don’t think it might happen, or that people who want it are wrong, or that it would necessarily be a bad thing. My eyes just don’t see it, and I don’t buy the trope that two people being on the screen at the same time equals imminent hookup, even if said people have chemistry or appear to enjoy each other’s company.
So here’s a chance for those of you that see this happening, or conversely for those of you that don’t, to convince the rest of us. But please note:
THIS IS NOT A POLL or IDLE SPECULATION
Meaning don’t just post “Delmond n’ Janette 4evuh” and leave. In the comments below, make your case, and not just because you want it or because it supposedly happened to the alleged real-world counterparts of the characters, or because adversity brings people together. Tell us why and how these romances or, for that matter, the new(ish) relationship of Annie and Davis, work for the fictional television drama Treme. Put yourself in the chair of the storyrunners and describe what a romantic relationship between these characters does (or doesn’t do) for this story, what resolution or fulfillment it accomplishes.
Knock yourself out, but stay on topic.
