Queer as folk - 1x01
My favorite sexiest song from “Queer as folk”
- Justin: Go find a stud, ask him to dance.
- Brian: Hey stud, wanna dance?
- Justin: Shut up.
- Brian: I promise you won't forget this one.
In my opinion this scene was important not just because Brian really found out about Justin and… and… the other guy.
But if you pay attention you can see a meaning in the gestures. Seconds before, Brian had his mask on. When he sees the two kissing, he takes his mask off and looks right into Justin’s eyes. He took the mask off, he wanted to show himself as he really was in that moment: hurt. Maybe, in his heart, he hoped that would help. Showing his emotions for once in his life until then, almost getting his soul naked in front of the only true love of his life.
But this didn’t work. Justin walked out.
And then Brian puts his mask on again. He decides to cover himself with lies again, lies about his feelings and his heart and his love for that persistent little kid. If Justin isn’t there, there’s no need to let the emotions come out. And so, the mask. Again. What has been there with him for his whole life, and what came off with Justin is there again, ‘cause Justin isn’t anymore.
If you think Brian first met Justin in episode 101 in December 3, 2000, you’re wrong! They first met in 1989, on an alcohol store.
