Not to negate the hotness of these two lovely people making out in a shower, but let’s talk about the salt shaker for a minute, yeah?
I am sure someone has brought this up already but whatever - I’ve yet to read it, so there, lol.
"A variety of methods are used to avert the evil omen of spilt salt. The most common contemporary belief requires you to toss a pinch of the spilt salt over your left shoulder, into the face of the Devil who lurks there.”
If you take religious superstition seriously, then spilled salt is a sign of lies, of treachery. And what does that tell us about Alex, who has a salt-shaker tattoo on her left shoulder? I suspect that the ‘devil’ that Alex is protecting herself from (in a joking manner but all jokes have their truth) is Alex herself.
And if this is part of - or all of - the reasoning behind the tattoo, then color me a tad surprised that Alex would be aware of this self-doubt, of the possible recriminations of the life she is choosing to lead… and allow that fear to show up in this way.
Oh my fascinating drug-dealer. *happy sigh*
