I’ll try to keep this short. Spoiler alert and such. As I’ve said, my relationship with Eva is a complex, complicated thing, possibly more complex than the show proper at times. As much as I hate it and think it’s an overrated piece of work requiring the strongest of brain bleach, I deep down still empathize […]Read more
