Have you ever noticed that when you’re watching a movie or TV show about someone who either goes missing for a long time or comes back from the dead, their significant other always hooks up with the missing person’s best friend or family member? And it’s always the same story too. It’s always, “We didn’t plan for this to happen. We just got close while we helped each other cope with the grief of losing you.”
Maybe it’s happened before, and I just haven’t seen it, but I would like to see one of those scenes where the friend or family member doesn’t say, “I don’t know how to tell you this but… I hooked up with your significant other.” Instead, they tell the person who just came back, “I don’t know how to tell you this but… I haven’t seen them since the memorial service we had for you. We hated each other. We just faked it for your sake.”
It would just be a nice change of pace.
