Okay, this moment cracked me the eff up. Because let’s face it, if you traveled in time and encountered your sweetheart husband’s direct ancestor and he looked JUST like him but was like, completely evil, think about the eternal moment of disconnect. Constantly seeing that face and thinking, it’s wrong, it’s wrong, it’s wrong. In every possible way. Which is why she underestimates him here, she thinks her husband must be in there some way. BIG LOUD BUZZER OF WRONG.
Tobias Menzies is one of my top ten favorite actors. His range is so crazy, it’ll give you whiplash. I’ve never seen him play anything twice. He makes Black Jack Randall such a terrifying asshole and the best part of it is that he makes performance a part of that performance. He’s interested in how behavior affects people, is canny about it, and uses it to crush them so that there’s nothing left.
