Karma and I are faking being lesbians. Karma is… I’m not so sure.

I’m sorry. Did I step on your button?

As this is the first scene in which we see Eleanor and Max interacting, it is an important one. It sets the scene of their relationship beautifully and it does so without a single world uttered between them. Eleanor is reeling from her fight with Vane and is intent on drowning her sorrows. What we have seen of Eleanor so far is that she is fiery and doesn’t let anyone tell her what to do. The Max we have seen up to this point is the front she puts on in her work - flirty and coy. Now we see Max serious for the first time, she is concerned about Eleanor and is aware of her presence the moment she enters the room. She goes to Eleanor and takes the glass from her like it’s second nature to her. Most tellingly, Eleanor lets her and doesn’t even try to protest. Then Max notices the bruise appearing on Eleanor’s jaw and a thousand things pass between them without a word. Max is clearly annoyed by what has happened to Eleanor. She takes her gently by the and and leads her away, Eleanor following pliant as anything.
