Ah season 2 - I think about 3/4 of this is some of my favourite Brian and Justin times - when he's helping him heal, when he lets him move in, he goes to a psychiatrist to get help, they really start to get together and start to live together happily.

"I'll be coming home to you" - although I don't agree with their agreement I love that Brian wants to come home to him no matter what

This is literally me. I was too young when the show started but now, 18 years after it premiered, I’m here. And obsessed lol

So, season two. I’m about five episodes in.

Michael and David broke up, not surprised, and frankly happy about it. Poor Michael though, not knowing what to do, feeling lost. That speaks to me because that is me right now. I’m happy he quit his job and ended up finding something he really loved doing.

I love how Brian goes to see Justin every night but doesn’t tell anyone. He does it because he cares but I also think he completely blames himself. Even though it’s not his fault. And I’m happy Justin made sure to tell him. That bloody scarf.... It makes me feel so bad for Brian, like why is he doing this to himself. Him telling Justin’s mother that he cares about Justin is a big step for him. I love how Brian is the only one that can really help Justin and that Jennifer finally realizes it. That part when Justin walks to Brian in thr street has my heart.

Lol @ Ted deciding to start a porn website and everyone was just like “okay....” Oh Ted. But kudos to him for going after his dreams. Can I make money off talking about my obsessions lol haha?

Justin almost giving up his art made me sad. I get how he was feeling but it would have been a stupid move. Meeting the artist in the wheelchair (and getting yelled at by Debbie, which he deserved), really set him back on track. I love when he drew Brian on his computer.

Brian has the capabilities to be sweet and loving and a real boyfriend but he holds himself back and I just want to smack him.

I love the Pride episode so much. It was fun and funny. Especially Michael dressing as a woman and kissing his boss haha. And of course, Justin and Brian dancing at the end.

Don't mind me, I'm just going to keep adding here as I watch haha.

I watched a few more episodes yesterday. It's so nice to be able to get your thoughts out and know that other people will understand them.

Brian and Justin and their new "relationship". Oi. You boys give me heart trouble. I mean, I get it. But it's like being in a relationship without being in a relationship. Can you both just love each other and get over it?! I swear. But then they are like the threesome kings, just doing everybody. It's like all right, have a good time then. But it is sweet that no matter what, they do want to come home to each other as was said a few posts ago. But I still love them and they are the best and I live for them.

Yay Ben is on the scene. I liked him from the start. He and Michael go so well together. It sucks how Michael almost gave it up but came to his senses. But Ben still made him work for it, or rather prove that he was serious and I like that.

It's surprising (but kind of also not?) that Debbie is so against Ben because he's positive. On one hand, she should be as accepting as she says she is but on the other hand, she is protecting her son.

I really like Emmett and George. They are actually so sweet together. And Emmett deserves happiness. He's the best.

Brian (and Justin I guess but not really) did it with a preacher. Because of course he did. But wow do I ever hate Brian's mother!! I don't understand how people can be that way. She looks at her son and tells him he's going to hell and that's it. And even though he doesn't show it, you know it bothers him. That's why it's good he has Debbie as his sort of mother.

And then also Lindsay's parents. I'll never understand how a parent can treat their child that way. They don't deserve their children. I love that party though when her parents were supposed to come and then because of Brian, it turned crazy But it made Lindsay realize that she doesn't need her parents approval.

Emmett when he went shopping for a new butt lol The part where he was "testing out the models" by squeezing the guys' butts made me laugh.

Lindsay and Melanie's wedding, I felt bad for them but it was also a bit funny in the way that everything went impossibly wrong. But it all came together in the end, thanks to their friends. I like how Brian at least offered to give away his trip to them as a honeymoon. He tried lol.

There was one part in the episode where Debbie finds the dead body (which is so sad and creepy by the way) that stuck out to me. Where Brian tells Michael that it's okay for him to mourn the passing on his favourite superhero. He didn't judge him, he didn't make fun of him, he supported him and told him that his feelings were valid. And I loved that a lot.

Whoo well okay, until next time haha!!

Feeling like not to be in the right spot in personal life and job is awful.. you feel like you lost track somehow, and you don't know if you are really wanted again when you come back. I hope you have someone to help you over that feeling A good friend of mine came back home after 12 years, but she didn't drive home as frequently as I did, when I was away for 15 years. so my friends still stayed the same and I never lsot real contact. It was us how helped her to come back to our little danceschoolfamily we just told her to come and in no time she got her old job back so I'm sure that felt her belong here again, and that is what it is about. you need to belong somewhere and feel it. Michale felt like his life was on pause , what probaly happened, since he had noone there and knowing Dave, Michale probably was kept his little secret I was glad to see him come back

he blamed himself alone that it happened, and he was afraid, that the others, especially Justin, would too.. that in my eyes is the main reason he came there by night. And I'm pretty sure he had a few nightmares alone at home so he prefered to sit in the hospital to watch over Justin and make sure he is save, rather then see him die in his dreams this lost look in Brians eyes when he looks at Justin makes me cry every time

to see Justin go after him and talk to him is so emotional. you can see that Brian is not the tough guy he makes everybody believe.. the more mad it made me when Jennifer sent him away.. Brian didn't even dare to fight for staying.. he thought it wasn't his place to be.. and since he blamed himslef for waht happened it totally made sense to him that he was bad for Justin. I was so glad that Justin was that stubborn and Jennifer went back to ask Brian for help. He could have said no, but he knew that it would hurt Justin more then he would hurt Jennifer with not agreening. To see all those tiny bits like asking a shrink for advice, something Brian would never even consider for himself if he would be threatend, or help him walk the treets again, shows how much he cared for Justin without even admitting it to himslef. and to make everything possible that was in his power to help Justin with his art was so amazing.. I mean, who would get a computer with artprogramms right away when he sees it.. I was glad Lindsay could drag him out of that depression and he fiannly used it.

I think you are not the only one but it again showed us, that Brian wasn't that A$$... we all were made believe watchin the show only once.. the more often I watch it, the more I see the unsure and sensitive person hiding underneath and covering all his feelings with dirty and tough talking.. of course he is making lots of money and he is good in his job, letting people think he is heartless, but it all was to save himself from pain that he suffered in his former life..

Haha I have a habit of speeding through shows, especially ones I like. I'm also already on season three LOL.

That's great about your friend and you helping her!!

I agree a lot with this. Brian may make me so angry (as I will rant about in a bit haha) but you can totally see why he's like that and why it's just an act. He's protecting himself. But also doing himself harm by not letting people in.

All right so, my thoughts on the rest of season two. I apologize about the novel that's about to come out of me haha:

A point I forget to mention before because it's from early on--I love how Brian vehemently tells Justin to never, ever have sex without a condom. I mean, it's standard advice that everyone should follow but I appreciated that and even more so coming from Brian. He may be someone who sleeps around but he's not an idiot. And then he basically tells Justin he cares about him and wants him around and I melted lol.

Oh my, Michael finding out Brian slept with Ben. That threw him for a loop. Of course Justin couldn't keep his mouth shut haha. Poor Michael though, for real. I'm glad he was finally able to let it go. I really like how he saw Brian in his mind and when he let it go, Brian left the apartment. I thought that was cool.

I thought it was interesting that Michael's father was a drag queen. I didn't see that coming. But I can see Debbie's reasoning. She did what did had to do. And even though by the end of the episode, everyone knew that the drag queen was Michael's father, Michael let Debbie keep up the fake story. He knew she needed it.

I do knew George was going to die on the plane. I had a feeling right before and I was right. So sad for Emmett though Emmett deciding to give up all the money George left him in favour of not keeping their love a secret was so sweet and so very Emmett. Class act!!

Justin becoming a go-go dancer. I commend him for wanting to make his own way and for not wanting Brian's help all the time. Justin is portrayed or at least thought of as this kid who follows Brian around and is blindly in love with him but he really isn't. He's smart, he's independent and he knows what he wants and what he's worth. It was a bad idea for him to become a go-go dancer, no matter how hot he looked haha Especially when he was dancing for Brian....yeeeees. Haha. But really, it was so dangerous and gross the way people wanted to use him. I'm glad he finally accepted Brian's offer.

When Brian let Justin **** him (there's really no other way to say it lol ), I thought that was a really big deal. Brian would never let anyone, period. Except Justin. And that's saying a lot.

Enter Ethan. Oh boy. I like him just fine. I think he and Justin would go well together, they're young and hot and there's passion and romance. But, they're just not meant for each other. But Justin saw everything Brian wasn't giving him and he went with it. Who could blame him? Brian wasn't willing to show his love. It's there but he refused to show it and I don't blame Justin for getting frustrated.

The part in the hospital when Brian comforts Michael when Ben is sick, that breaks my heart and makes me want to cry. It's so sweet and loving and it's really telling of their relationship. Brian saying that he wouldn't have made it without Michael just gets me.

I love the comic book and Justin & Michael working together. And Brian being so jealous!! It made me laugh because he acted like such a child but pissed me off too because seriously Brian!!

Ted and Emmett yay!! They are so sweet together and I'm so happy they gave it a try. Even though it was a bit of a bumpy start, they made it through.

It's so nice to have a place where I can get all my thoughts out!!

All that happend in season 2? I need that rewatch more then I thought

The lecture with the condom was amazing. especially when Justin said that Brian is not just anyone. He opend Justins eyes, that no matter what or who, you never can be sure.. Of course Brian was always save, but even then he never was sure.. anything could happen, and he wanted Justin to be aware of that and to never risk his health with getting careless.. not even if he thought to be safe..

Brian comforting Michale in the hospital is just great. He dropped everything to help his best friend. and there was only pure real friendship and nothing in between the lines in it. that is what makes this scene so real to me.. there was no profit for Brian to be there, no showing off and nothing else you sometimes get to see even just as a glimpse. I love that scene

Ethan.. yes they sure were a cute couplke and they fit together in age and interests, but passion.. I don't really get that feeling from the two... they had chemistry and Justin sure got all the romantic things from him, although I'm not sure if it was a tiny bit too much, but the passionate lovemaking scenes was what I missed.. the uncontrolled hottness.. I don't know how I can describe it the right way

Yes exactly!! It was pure & real, like you said. I wish we got to see more of it.

I understand what you mean. Maybe it wasn't passion so much as it was lust?

I had a gut-feeling about George, too. It's usually when things are at their very best and you're feeling lots of joy... you're flying through euphoria.. is when something happens that brings you back down to earth. That's what happened here, and it's tragic that Emmett lost his love like that. After experiencing such an intense wave of happiness with George. 30,000 miles in the air, after such an intimate moment. Can only imagine what the pain was like. George was in his 80s, though, so I can understand why the writers tore them apart. Still sad, though.

Brian bottoming for Justin was such a surprise, really... and so random. I thought it was a move in the right direction, though, at deepening their relationship. Added bonus is that Brian looked like he was on cloud 9.

I agree about the situation with Ethan. As much as we all love Brian and Justin, it was great that Justin was given a chance to date someone closer to his age... because isn't that what most people want? For a young lad's youth to be preserved for a long as possible. But yes, Ethan was definitely a wildcard of sorts that was thrown in towards the end of season 2 to move things in a new, interesting direction. They were so hot together in the beginning, you really felt the passion between them in their first love scene. Even I was swooning.

Ben and Michael out in the hall was such an emotional scene. I always get a little lump in my throat every time I watch it. Michael was really torn up over Ben's medical situation. He really loves him and doesn't want anything to happen to him. When Brian offering his consolation in turn gave way to his revelation of what happened the night of Justin's bashing. Shows that Brian is still pretty affected by what happened. The hug was beautiful, and I felt so much emotion between the two characters. Great acting.

Justin as go-go dancer wasn't my favorite thing at all. I mean, he almost got raped on account of the SIMP... I mean SAP. So, so grimy. I felt dirty watching that entire story line. The SAP was taking advantage of Justin in one of the most deplorable of ways, and Brian knew this. Which is exactly why he did not approve of Justin working for him in order to make college payments. But you can't tell Justin anything, because he's determined to do whatever he sets out to. Besides, Justin had to learn for himself. Boy, did he ever!

I think it's a good thing that Ted and Emmet were exploring new aspects of their friendship, that morphed into a relationship. But I think Ted gave Emmett the creeps in the beginning. Because he kept following Emmett around, giving googly eyes, laughing at all his jokes... you know, just acting like a lovesick puppy. It was endearing to see, though.

Man there was a lot of things happening in Season 2 indeed

I liked George and I think he and Emmett were good together - despite the massive age difference. And they all met because of Emmett's new job

Love Michael and Brian being there for each other is so nice and does show their friendship in such a special way

Didn't like the go-go dancing at all - I think Justin was being stubborn for stubborns sake and there was other things he could do or ways to make money. Or take Brian's money - he has it and will help you out. I agree with you Denise - it was all grimy and slimy and yucky.

Oh Ethan - not a fan at all - he knew Justin was taken but he kept making the moves and saying things he knew Justin wanted to hear but once you know someone is taken you leave them alone you know. Maybe Justin could have had another love but I didn't like the way it was done or the character much. I know many don't agree with me but that's my feelings

I liked the lecture about the condom because Brian said he wanted Justin to be around for a long long time So sweet

It was a very busy season wasn't it?

That's what happened here, and it's tragic that Emmett lost his love like that. After experiencing such an intense wave of happiness with George. 30,000 miles in the air, after such an intimate moment. Can only imagine what the pain was like. George was in his 80s, though, so I can understand why the writers tore them apart. Still sad, though.

Exactly. George would never work in the long run but it was so sweet and so sad to see Emmett put through it.

Brian bottoming wasn’t random per se to me. I was waiting for it to happen. Because then you know he really loves and trusts Justin.

Yes, that’s exactly it, the go-go think was slimy and icky. Like please Justin, don’t be an idiot. I’m glad he got out before something happened to him.

When I first saw it I was like how are they going to do this with Emmett travelling for a year - is the show going to jump forward or something? I honestly didn't think about something happening to George.


Brian would only ever do it for Justin though - no-one else ever I don't think.

I was so worried watching the episode where Justin went to that party for his boss and they slipped him stuff and he was drugged - I really thought something bad was going to happen to him and I was so worried about that I'm glad that he got out with nothing happening to him worse than the drugging - it was not a nice episode though I find it interesting he didn't say anything to Brian though - just that he changed his mind and would take the money. He doesn't talk about what happened at the party though.

I guess I assumed they would do a time jump too. But as soon as they were on the plane and were talking, something hit me and I was like "okay, this dude is dying."

I think Brian knew, or at least had a pretty good idea of what happened to Justin and why he changed his mind and quit being a go-go dancer. It was more of an unspoken thing between them.
