I love the way she hops up into the confessional
with a big smile on her freckled face.
It cracks me up every time.
Truth be told, that's been my favorite as well. And under the circumstances of her life, is so much needed. She is nothing short (pun not intended) of absolutely adorable in that scene. (to a point I keep a HiRes framed picture of it in my office).
Damn good dialogue too.
This is the first area of dialogue that truly gives insight into her fantasy of wishful thinking as well as into her reality of needed comfort.
(there will be ample more coming that reveals much, much further into that in the season finale. No spoilers, but there's a cliffhanger).
and then later during a dream of her mother:
"Keep your hands to yourself, Saint!"
awesome. just .. awesome.
(it's actually "Keep your hands to yourself, Satan!" but I fear the incidental music may have overridden that, I can adjust it).
Elly's subconscious plays with her dreams from fantasies. If anything, Elly's childhood is a true psychological exploration. It's hard to interpret that in the series, but I'm doing as best I can. An extraordinary amount of research has gone into this aspect of her young life, I actually sat down with a psychiatrist to discuss how the two would play off each other; how her fantasies (awake) would become distorted over time and reinterpreted in what were dreams (sleep) that inevitably would become nightmares. Reality versus perspective. She held on just as any child would, but eventually the reality of her life would no longer be protected by her wishful fantasy, with the decay of her subconscious destroying that as well.
. . .
Sometimes late at night,
I watch the Trial Chapters with earphones,
under my covers,
all alone ..
they bring comfort and warmth.
Following the Season Finale, I will upload the full soundtrack of season's one and two and will be sure you get it (note, not series finale, there's much more to come, each season covers a period in her life, with the Season One being the prelude to her birth, Season Two being her childhood/adolescence, Season Three being her young adulthood and so-forth).
