SO, basically the Blonde Thunder episode is gonna be all about Silent and Junior talking about how they feel towards each other because that whole episode is just about Chuck driving to win a race and mike “helping” him so they don’t lose mutt to a deal they made with the duke.
And it’s just sappy and kinda sad and they finally do become friends again and like they are goofing off with each other.
Like before they made up, Texas noticed that Silent was missing and asked where she went and everyone shrugged. So they looked for her while selling Jacob’s… food.. and finally was able to locate her. Texas was about to beat the shit out of Junior, but Julie told him to stop because she probably knew what was happening. But they still watched from the sidelines to see if it was ok.
So as they both talk and work things out, they realize they do have massive feelings for each other and even though Silent already knew this, Junior was surprised with himself because he didn’t really notice it until she went missing for a few months after the issue with Duke.
They obviously can’t be together because it would feel forced and weird so they both agreed to wait until the time was right. Silent obviously thinks Junior is confusing his feelings for her with friendship because they did bond together during some stuff.
And then this (my fave part) happens, Junior wants Silent to actually look at him in the eyes while they talk but since she keeps a fox mask on her face (like the white ones, you know the ones. Anime ones) it’s kinda hard to do so, so he tries to take it off her face and she obviously avoids it.
“I feel like you’re not actually listening to me, take off the mask.”
“No, I’m listening. I keep this on for a personal reason. Let it go.”
Junior, the little shit he is, keeps trying to take it off during the races and Silent, the stubborn one, keeps avoiding his grabby hands. It looks like a fight between two siblings. And eventually Junior grabs a hold of the mask’s edges and is about to yank it off, but Silent asks for a deal before he took it off.
“I’ll take the mask off if you show me what’s underneath your hair that covers your eye.”
That confuses Junior. And he tilts his head. “You want to see my eye?”
Like Silent has never seen his other eye before because it’s constantly covered by his hair and she’s curious. It sounded like a fair deal. “Like do you have a scar or is it normal or is your eye replaced with a robotic one?”
Eventually Junior agrees and shows her (a secret :)) and that’s when Chuck wins the last race and that signifies the episode is over and before Silent can show Junior what’s underneath her mask, she’s whisked away from him by Texas and the rest to congratulate Chuck.
