I know I don’t usually blog about this but I do watch and enjoy Revenge. Like everyone with any sense at all, I recognize that the best character on the show is Nolan. So can we discuss what the hell is going on with his wardrobe this season? Before we even talk about the clothes can we address the fact that he is clearly manorexic! He was headed there last season and now he is officially skeletal. Can someone feed Gabriel Mann as sandwich, please? He has that vegan/manorexical look if you ask me. I have no idea how to fatten up a vegan. Unless it is with Mango Apricot Greek Yogurt from Trader Joes. I am glad I looked at the calorie and fat count AFTER I tried some of that creamy goodness yesterday. Someone needs to send Gabriel a case.
Back to his wardrobe. I get that Nolan is supposed to be a quirky dresser, a bad dresser even, but this season his wardrobe has crossed the line. What is the significance of the snot rag he wears tied around his adam’s apple like a deceitful cross-dresser every other scene? I just got caught up on the last two episodes and it was so distracting I decided to blog simply to ask you all if I missed some part of the plot that explains it. WTF? Perhaps it is the weight loss in part (is he dressing from the children’s department?), but his wardrobe is just beyond the pale this season. What is with the painted on blond highlights reminiscent of every gay man in the south in the 1980s? Nolan is supposed to be bisexual and yet they are dressing him with every gay stereotype even circulated! Are they going to give him a 70s porn stache next? I just can’t.
And speaking of Revenge guys. I was glad to see Aiden make a return on the last episode. He seems to be on Emily’s side, but are we really sure about that? Emily seems to have some sort of whatever passes for feelings with her for him and Jack. I’m not sure who to root for anymore. Are you guys Revenge fans?
