Luke: “Revenge”? That sounds so dishonourable
Julie: Oh good, so you’re not going to—
Luke: I prefer to call it “returning the favour”

Ok I did a JATP rewatch and now I’m having Carrie thoughts because she’s such an interesting character to me and she has this subtle little arc too in season one that I really appreciated this time around??
I know she has the whole bitch vibe going for her and we don’t know what happened between her, Julie, and Flynn obviously but a lot of their interactions are really strongly (but subtly) laced with jealousy from Carrie.
The first time we see their rivalry as more jealousy-tinged is literally in episode 2 after bright, when Carrie gets mad at Nick for congratulating Julie. She says something like “I earned my chair” and was upset specifically about Julie doing something that she saw as gimmicky to get back into the music program, but mostly because she outshone Carrie. Instead of everyone talking about Carrie, they were talking about Julie.
And then in Finally Free the band manager treats her like a little kid and makes a beeline for Julie when Carrie actually was super confident, had a great routine, and was being very professional about approaching her. After that, Carrie invites herself to the Edge of Great performance and it’s the first time she doesn’t make any cutting remarks towards Julie, she just sort of watches wistfully. She’s a bitch at the beginning of Stand Tall but by the end she’s watching the band in some combination of awe and jealousy.
And really, I think for Carrie it’s less about Julie and more about her dad. We know how Julie and her mom approached music - as something they did collaboratively together, something for joy because it was important to them. Carrie’s understanding of music revolves much more around her dad’s fame, and probably in a lot of ways his absence (as a big time rock star he’s definitely not home much). While Julie always had her moms attention, Carrie probably had to fight for her dads. And then in the music world she’s likely always overshadowed by Trevor, feeling like she has to constantly prove herself and be perfect every time to come out from under her shadow and stopped being viewed as the cute kid who uses daddy’s money because she wants to be famous. It’s probably also why she’s so bubblegum pop compared to Julie’s pop-rock sound even though we know they both grew up around rock music. For Julie it’s something enjoyable. For Carrie it’s something she’d never be good enough at. So she has this whole bitchy persona that is absolutely hiding her insecurities, you know? And she clearly lets that persona down around someone like Nick - and then he breaks up with her so he can ask out Julie.
And I just feel like by the end of Stand Tall (which she went to with her dad even though she has NO context of the boys being ghosts and would just think that HER dad really wants to go see JULIE play) she’s more defeated than anything. Being a bitch doesn’t work. Trying her best doesn’t work. She’s constantly overshadowed by Julie despite even trying to break away from singing the same music and performing the same way.
Anyways I want my big S2 Carrie redemption arc I NEED it

[image id: five screencap redraws of the old guard with the characters replaced by characters from julie and the phantoms. the first is of luke grabbing a scared julie by the front of her shirt scowling, “haven’t you figured this out yet? you can’t die.” there is blood on her forehead and shoulder. the second is of willie sitting in a dimly lit kitchen and smiling off to rhe left saying, “we—we killed each other.” while waving a hand in front of himself. off-screen, alex says, “many times.” the third is of alex sitting with his arms propped up on his knees looking forlorn saying, “his name was reggie.” the fourth is of julie looking up at luke, blood splattered on both of them. luke says, “i know how i want to spend the time i have left.” julie says,“you’re gonna spend it with us, luke.” the fifth is of bobby leaning on a railing and smiling up at julie. he says, “you’re gonna be great for the team.” /end id]

(un-)friendly reminder that bobby wilson is not a fucking murderer and didn't kill sunset curve.
(un-)friendly reminder bobby wilson was a 17 year old kid who lost all three of his best friends and bandmates in one single night that was supposed to be important as hell to them, and that he had to deal with the trauma of that as well as being in the music industry all on his own.
(un-)friendly reminder that bobby wilson is barely talked about but was trusted enough by luke to play unsaid emily with him, so obviously they were really close friends.
(un-)friendly reminder that bobby wilson thought his best friends were dead. as in. never coming back, and that we don't know what he did and didn't do with their music, because why in the fucking world would he share something so traumatic with his daughter and her best friend.
(un-)friendly reminder that bobby wilson is played by taylor kare, who is, in fact, a man of colour, so maybe fucking take a look at why you hate him so much and re-examine your fucking reasons, because they make no sense.
i'm tired of people saying bobby killed sunset curve, or was evil. y'all lack critical thinking skills. could he have done better? probably. do we know all of his circumstances? no.
leave him alone.
