Hello, everybody again! I'm back
I could finally see Summers episode!
I'm really glad that Summer got more screentime and her performance during the confrontation scene was simply staggering! Honestly this is one of Summers most intense and brilliant moments ever IMO! Of course it wasn't as long as Alisons interrogation scenes for example but that few moments packed a real punch for sure! So many different and strong emotions, mixed with each other, brilliantly played and communicated to the audience while keeping those emotions so genuine as if it were a real exchange in front of you. The other thing that staggered me( and it always does) is that the same power and raw emotion that came from Summer when she was new and fresh a decade ago is still 100% there. Even the best artists tend to burn out a bit with time or have bad days at least but Summer is like if she were just starting to heat up.
Where all that energy and brilliance comes from I wonder?
Its simply amazing that it doesn't matter which point of her career you choose she is equally brilliant every time. Her other moments were brilliant too of course in the episode.
This episode on the other hand clearly underlines the artistic values vs. career advancement issues. Summer doesn't really belong there in that sense that every other actor and the script seems vastly inferior compared to her abilities IMO and I'm sure she was never so much bored in her life than in this changing period simply because this role didn't use utilize even 1% of her abilities. This clearly makes a very unpleasant contrast with Summer vs. everybody else on stage which is only helped by Summers handicapped screentime.
Of course its right now the best to build her career and I imagine this two eps were an enormous help with that, my point simply is that as in the case of A- lister movies artistic is not the same as succesful or even popular.
