IT’S THE MOST SHOCKING SWERVE EVER! The tiny heart contained many more hearts! Many, many more! And less tiny than the original one – so it’s quite clear that Mopey’s heart was bigger from the inside all along!
Which, frankly, some people have been suspecting, namely the Professor – he just knew better than to ever mention that suspicion of his, especially around the subject. And his high age (he still had back then) and scientist status allowed him to deal with the situation with just a slight, knowing smile at the right moment, without any need for words. One of the privileges that comes with being that sort of wise, mentor-type character he used to be.
Other people would never have suspected it, and will not believe it actually happened, until there is irrefutable evidence. We will have to wait and see whether that materializes.
Mopey, for her part, didn’t suspect it either – or she’d never have laid a finger onto that thrice-accursed thing! As genre-savvy as she can be at times, she’s also a scientist, however, and that’s why she felt a closer examination was both warranted as well as reasonably safe, considering the level of inertness the tiny heart had displayed under strict observation. A more genre/fiction-savvy character would have known that, contrary to scientific expectations, the heart was bound to do something spectacular when touched – precisely because it hadn’t done anything at all before. It’s a B-movie, after all, so “cheap thrill” is a feature, not a bug.
More love on Thursday.
