Dan + Amy in every episode

6.09 – A Woman First

That little hand tap…

As much as Dan can get quite touchy-feely with Amy, it’s not usually as careless as this. For all that he invades her personal space CONSTANTLY, he tends to actually touch her only when he’s trying to calm her down or get her to see reason.

Which, clearly, isn’t what’s happening here. I think he’s putting out feelers, testing her a little bit, and probably escalating as the night went on. In other words, for Amy, I think it was primarily a kind of “fuck it, I’m miserable and maybe going to jail, why the hell not,” and probably a decision she made only in the moment, but I think it was more…calculated than that for Dan.

Because he’s not drunk here.
