Spread the love


That was an thrilling banquet.

Solely three time durations had been lined throughout Time Traveler’s Spouse Season 1 Episode 4. Nonetheless, it was the fastest-paced episode, and Clare (Rose Leslie) bought to kiss many various folks.

I jokingly needed to discuss with this one because the kissing and intercourse episode.


Whereas elements of the banquet had been humorous, many of the episode featured a severe theme. It revolved round Henry and Clare selecting one another.

On Clare’s 18th birthday, she bought dressed up and left Henry a swimsuit to put on, so they might have a romantic picnic to have a good time.


Henry appeared uncomfortable with spending time with Clare now that she had matured.

How do you suppose my spouse who I left in mattress goes to really feel about me sitting on a blanket with an 18-year-old model of herself?
Henry


Henry thought the older model of Clare could be harm that he was spending time along with her youthful self. I appreciated how Clare instructed him off for correcting how she thinks. They bantered like a married couple.

Clare appeared to wrestle extra as a result of they might quickly be separated for 2 years. She was grieving shedding him and a lot extra.


Clare was nonetheless grieving, shedding her innocence. A part of why she needed to make like to Henry was to erase the reminiscence of being raped by Jason.

Seeing these flashes of her rape bolstered how badly she wanted to overlook that and really feel secure with Henry.

Clare: I would like you to be my first.Henry: However I don’t wish to be yours. I wish to be your final, Clare.


We noticed some romantic emotions from Henry right here, and the couple shared their first kiss, however ready two years simply appeared like ceaselessly to Clare.

Clare was in mattress with Gomez when Charisse wasn’t there a yr later. She instantly regretted it and virtually had a panic assault.


Whereas Clare dealt along with her anxiousness, Gomez acted like a stereotypical man and thought he was horrible in mattress.

I’m crying as a result of I betrayed my greatest buddy with my different greatest buddy, and I fairly probably simply fucked up the remainder of my life.
Clare


Poor Clare. She has now had regrettable sexual experiences, and he or she was drunk.

I puzzled if she had PTSD and wanted to get the picture of Jason out of her head. Gomez made issues worse by implying that he thought Clare was a lesbian since she’s all the time alone.

When she instructed him about Henry, Gomez acted like a jealous lover, demanding to know the place he was and when he bought to fulfill him.


Gomez, Clare, and Charisse’s friendship doesn’t work. Coming between two greatest mates is a typical trope, however Gomez was sleazy.

Gomez: I really like Charisse.Clare: Good. I assumed you probably did since you and Charisse are the actual factor.Gomez: However I really like you extra! There I stated it.


The e book implied that Gomez liked Clare, but it surely was not overt. Selecting the most effective buddy is flawed and uncomfortable when you possibly can’t have your first alternative.

It turned much more awkward when Charisse needed Clare’s opinion on Gomez, so Clare tried to keep away from it and say they had been each her mates.

When Clare joked that Gomez thought she was a lesbian, Charisse thought she was severe and moved in and kissed her. Have a look at all of the motion Clare is getting. She initially pulled away, however later we noticed her in mattress with Charisse.


Once we flashed again to the meadow, Clare and Henry had been nonetheless making out, with Clare making an attempt to persuade him to make love.

Clare: I’m not going to see you for 2 years.Henry: I do know, however we are able to’t.Clare: I’m your spouse!Henry: My spouse is 33-years-old and ready in mattress for me.Clare: Your spouse is true right here and he or she’s waited lengthy sufficient


Whereas Henry could not have “groomed” Clare, the collection mentions the idea. Henry appeared unnerved by making love in the identical spot he had watched Clare develop up and helped her along with her homework.

Nonetheless, Clare was solely upset that Henry by no means proposed since they had been fated to be collectively. She needed a romantic proposal, like each woman desires off. Even after he proposed, she refused to reply till they’d intercourse.

Clare has all the time been intelligent, however that was considered one of her most sneaky strikes. Henry reiterated that Clare wanted to dwell her personal life for the reason that youthful model of him will not know she existed. That alone may make Clare grieve.


Now let’s talk about the banquet. It began innocently sufficient with 28-year-old Henry coming over to fulfill Clare’s roommates and have dinner. After all, Charisse and Gomez had been suspicious since they knew nothing about him.

However then, bare 41-year-old Henry arrived at Clare’s condo, and chaos ensued.

Guess who’s coming to dinner?
41-year-old Henry


The youthful Henry implored the opposite one to place one thing on, particularly since Clare stored flirting with the older bare one. Gomez checked on them, and Clare rushed him out earlier than a battle broke out.

The older Henry dealt with Gomez’s crush on Clare higher, saying Gomez had good style. He remembered the remainder of the night was a prepare wreck and apologized prematurely.


Since occasion friends may solely inform the reality, issues bought messy when Henry’s girlfriend arrived.

Ingrid: I’m Henry’s girlfriend.Clare: Me too. Effectively, fortunately we are able to double date.


Ingrid was enjoyable. She thought she and Henry had heaps in frequent, resembling ingesting, intercourse, and him.

Issues solely turned awkward when Gomez acknowledged her when he broke up a battle between her and Henry the yr earlier than.

She turned agitated as a result of she did not keep in mind him or did not wish to.


It was amusing watching the Henrys play video games with Charisse and Gomez as they confirmed off their similar scars. Gomez was satisfied they had been clones.

When Henry defined time journey, Gomez and Charisse thought he ought to use his expertise to resolve crimes. Poor Henry. If he may do this, he would’ve gone previously and stopped his mother’s automotive accident.

At one level, Ingrid ridiculed and defended Henry when she stated Henry could not even maintain himself when time-traveling, not to mention save the world.

Ingrid and Clare get right into a traditional catfight over the Henrys. Ingrid prefers the “wild hair” Henry and instructed Clare she may have the debonair model.


Episode 4 hinted that Henry would not dwell previous his early 40s. When Ingrid needed to learn about her future, Henry hesitated however then admitted neither of them could be round for too lengthy.

We noticed cuts on Ingrid’s arms, so she should have grow to be suicidal after she and Henry broke up. A minimum of she and Henry bought some closure.

Henry additionally talked about he is solely seen his forty second birthday.

Whereas Gomez is an absolute jerk to the youthful Henry, he turns into mates with the older model. Older Henry asks him to be variety to the youthful model as a favor. That appeared like a nasty omen.


After older Henry hugged Ingrid goodbye, he disappeared, leaving solely a blanket behind.

Each Clare and Ingrid had been affected by this, however Gomez confirmed no tact or sensitivity and repeated that he had disappeared.

As Clare put the blanket away, she acknowledged it because the one she and different Henry had made love on within the meadow. The love be aware he left her learn “Have Mercy.”

That helped her to maneuver on in her relationship with the youthful Henry.
