Goodbye Sandra | Sandra & Kevin
I do enjoy seeing men getting threatened with pointy objects. It’s particularly great with him because although he’s angry he’s so calm about the whole thing, like he’s already evaluating exactly how to get Niobe and himself out of that situation.
Here we finally have Pullo, who of course has been doing well for himself by not doing ‘the right thing’, not that it really exists in this show. It’s a common theme with their relationship really. Vorenus starts doing better for himself once he’s dragged down to Pullo’s level, although that comes with its own set of problems and a lot of baggage.
If it wasn’t a bit depressing it would almost be funny how quickly they fall back into their original roles in this scene. Pullo might try to argue back to Vorenus but as soon as he gives him an order he stops that completely. They both slip back into it because really they need the structure in their lives and I think find it oddly reassuring, whatever else might be going wrong in their lives.
