Marcella has been tiptoeing a tightrope for some weeks now. Only just managing to walk the line of high drama and plausibility in these past seven weeks, the show finally plummeted in this last instalment, falling into a huge pit of absurdity and insanity so hard that the audience at home were left covered in it all.
They fought all the way through the crowd, up on the balcony. Fenix tried a tight rope walk and was thrown into a group of fans. Then he actually pulled it off and did a huge dive that got a monster pop.
At his best, Elliott wears at least one item that toes the line between a disaster and a triumph. And that hat is doing a tight rope walk right on that line, definitively landing on the latter side to help deliver an all-time Elliott fashion performance.
This is because, for some reason, Steve-O loses his concentration just a few seconds into his journey across a tightrope over a pond filled with thrashing, hungry alligators and ends up clinging to it for dear life from underneath. Not content with this danger quotient, Chris Pontius rushes in to stuff a Cornish game hen into his shorts, which certainly gets the alligators' attention but fails to have exactly the desired effect (just a few nips in the hen's general direction). Finally, Steve-O's grip weakens, and he falls into the pond. He then gamely stands there, butt pointed at the alligators, and waits for one of the beasts to creep up and snatch its snack from his waistband before literally sprinting out of the pond. Any fan of "Jackass" has seen Steve-O's ass a hundred times, but this was almost the very last time. For that matter, he's just lucky Pontius didn't hang the hen around his neck.
During the performance, Ty Lee performed a tightrope act for the private audience consisting of the Fire Nation princess. While she was balancing on one hand high above the ground, Azula ordered Shuzumu, the ringmaster, to set the net beneath Ty Lee's tightrope ablaze and release an assortment of dangerous animals, increasing the peril for Ty Lee should she fall. Ty Lee watched from above, her smile becoming an expression of terror as she remained in Azula's gaze.
Despite his deep cowardice, he is not without being intelligent. He understands the dangers that Villanelle possesses and that her ego is a beast, constantly walking on a tightrope of being able to manage it. While he is impressed with Villanelle's display of violence and hobbies, he's still clever enough to be frightened of her and knows her well enough to not be powerless to her charms. However, despite his intelligence, he is also quite arrogant and sometimes thinks that he can use his charms to win over certain people that he's betrayed in the past before, including both Villanelle and Eve who both no longer trusted him after what happened in Rome. His arrogance does to a deeper level as whether or not he can see it, his continuance of manipulations and betrayals for his own survival may result with his fitting end.
There\u2019s an extremely thin tightrope Fielder walks as he rarely punches down on the business owners/managers he helps (at least the most vulnerable ones). However, it is scary just how good of a manipulator he is as so much of the show involves getting people into the right places at the right times for the right moments. This is my ranking of those moments. 781b155fdc
