little moments from 5×08 (Thanksgiving)
Though this episode is strictly Eric/Donna related, I do love that Danny and Mila chose to add another layer of depth to their character’s onscreen relationship by keeping the physical contact between them present – it helps keep a consistent journey of Hyde and Jackie’s relationship even when it is not the main focus.
It also makes me very interested to know what they were talking about on the stairs – was it the actors making idle chit chat, or were they in-character? If so, what did they assume Hyde and Jackie would be talking about? In-universe, of course, they must have been discussing something, and I like that the actors decided to take that course of action because it’s one of the first real instances where their relationship isn’t limited to ‘making out because they were bored’, and shows that they do actually talk to each other.
The second gif is something I only noticed upon rewatching the episode the other day, and I love it because it wasn’t Hyde grabbing Jackie’s hand to lead her away from the table – they’d actually been holding hands for the whole of the scene prior. Perhaps Hyde isn’t as tough as he likes to think he is after all 😉
Excellent post! 😀
Jackie and Hyde also share a kiss at the dinner table during that episode.
I’m always frustrated that Eric’s head blocks Jackie and Hyde on the stairs. *lol* We could read their lips! But in the .gif you posted of them,Hyde smiles at something Jackie says, so they’re clearly having a good time together. ❤
Yes! It’s hard to see with Eric’s head, but it’s definitely Hyde talking at that point as well, meaning that Jackie’s not the only one in their relationship who likes to talk 😀
And aww, those comics! Perhaps that’s why Hyde’s her pudding pop – because he makes her feel better, when she feeling low, and made her realise she doesn’t need her parents.
