Got three of my rl friends to watch Orphan Black
Frankie’s interactions with Maura that were supposedly “romantic” were bookended by him objectifying Charlie - who was there merely as a female prop for his and Tommy’s amusement. She was literally only around to be used by both of them to gauge their attraction to other women. It was disgusting and Maura deserves way better than that. The characters of Frankie and Tommy deserve better than that, too. However, since we’re being set up for a Maura/Frankie kiss, the focus should be on Frankie’s unworthiness of Maura - she’s a smart, beautiful, accomplished person who deserves WAY MORE than a guy who was leering at some girl seconds before he decided he liked her.
Maura is just one of those women that everyone is just a little bit in love with. Male or female. She is so perfect.
