spoilers for next season / / / / / / / / / / / // You think I'm being facetious, but the pitiful fact of it is that I'm not. With all these news snippets about T'Pol showing more skin next season and she and Archer sharing a kiss (and possibly doing the horizontal mambo) why am I not all a twitter with titillation? I'm a hetero gal. I should enjoy watching a hetero couple getting all sweaty, yet I'm not. There's something seriously wrong with your supposedly golden couple's chemistry when the idea of the captain and the chief engineer making out has more sex appeal. I've always maintained that Archer and Tucker seem like brothers (and they do for the most part) but the hoyay does sneak out and grab you with those two. I swear to God they were flirting with each other after returning from shoreleave in the beginning of "Bounty" in those fetching tan outfits. Trip was blushing like they'd had make up sex to get over their rift in "Cogenitor." It's blatant enough to make me wonder if SB and CT are doing a Julian/Garak dynamic on purpose. Doesn't whatshisname say at conventions that he played Garak as being attracted to Julian on purpose? Maybe Scott and Connor are just that wicked. Roxanne Dawson's direction always does bring out the vibes between those two. They were sexier having a hockey date than Archer and T'Pol were greasing each other up in his decon dreams. So why are Archer and Trip giving off more potent sexual vibes than Archer and T'Pol? Somebody answer me this. It's not a rhetorical question. Why is the thought of Archer consoling a grief stricken Trip next season and chastising him over his desire for vengeance more exciting than the thought of Archer sticking his tongue in T'Pol's navel? Why must Archer and T'Pol sleep with each other? Somebody give me an answer. Please. The thought of them taking a roll in the hay makes me want to count sheep. The thought of Archer and Trip rubbing decon gel all over each others' lovely shoulders makes me want to mix a martini and give my husband the bedroom eye. Hell, at least fans would have something to applaud Trek for on principle if somebody listened to my idea. Do you think Archer and T'Pol will be married by series' end?
