Yes! I actually ended up really liking how they did it, the more I thought about it. They played on the viewer’s knowledge of tropes and the expectation that we’d immediately think Violet was playing Dex so that the actual twist would be that she wasn’t. It made everything suddenly deeper, they ARE two former soldiers who just met and had a great time, by both their standards, and the fact that Violet let her walk away, that she sent the drink, that Dex DRANK it? I fully hope they’re going to bring Violet back, this kind of chemistry would be too much to waste.
I also just have to say the writing was so much better than it has been for some of these recent eps. I wish this was the Dex they wrote all the time, not even including her with Violet, let her still be awkward and messy and angsty, just more in control in some tiny crucial ways.
