There’s a reason why we’re too pessimistic. There has been so many negative interviews and tweets about J/A from the actors (Alison in particular) and the writers (Andy Bobrow).
“But people were demanding to know if Jeff and Annie would finally get together this season. The answer is no. I’m sorry, but we took things a different way.”
He said that about this season, yes, but he also said they took things a different way. And correct me if I’m wrong, but I remember a lot of interviews saying they’re developing them this season. And if that development =/= them ending up together, what would be the point if not to fully give those two closure?
I would LOVE to be wrong about this, and to believe there’s hope for J/A, but after the things that have come out, there’s barely anything to hold on to (Jeff Winger supposedly feels shame during moments of attraction/flirtation with Annie, I mean…).
Nothing, basically. We don’t know the complete details yet, but we know they’re sinking that ship completely.
I’m so sorry anon, I’m just not happy with what the writers have planned for J/A (obviously none of us are) and I’m trying not to ship them as hard anymore (but I still do and if I post stuff on here I’m just going to be super passive-aggressive and sarcastic and sad, but alright, I’ll try to still make stuff from time to time! If you have requests and stuff, just send me a message! :)
aw thank you anon! :)
Hello anon! Uhm well, you’ll see from that episode, when Shirley tells Annie that line, a shot of Jeff with furrowed eyebrows is shown. Later on we see Jeff trying so hard to know the secret to being that guy - the kind who, despite being imperfect, and despite being undeserving of a woman, CAN make a woman go crazy for him. This basically reflects Jeff’s POV - he knows Annie can do better, he knows Annie IS better and he doesn’t feel like he deserves her, but he WANTS her. He wants her so bad he needed to know how to make her unable to shake him off, too.
But I mean, that just depends on one’s interpretation, I guess? Hard to not say it as a fact after the look Jeff and Annie share by the end of the episode though. ;)
"Sometimes a woman meets a man she just can’t shake from her system, no matter how much she knows better." "Why do you wanna know the secret to making a woman psycho?" "In case we have to! In case we have to."
