Discussion in 'Jesus / Tom Payne' started by Doctor Grimes, Aug 5, 2016.

?

Who do you want to see in a relationship with Jesus?

    I'll go for Aaron. Mostly because the comic are
    making them cute and Michonne is trying to hook them up. lol

    Yeah, I think Aaron/Jesus has more of a chance of happening, but Gabe/Jesus? I want some fan fic. It has potential to be hot and funny (for the jokes with Jesus's name alone). I do think Gabriel opening up to someone would be wonderful for his character more importantly.

    @Gooey Goobert - this response is for you too.....

    Why is it that Aaron/Jesus seems like a romantic 'awwww' pairing that I am totally comfortable with but :gabe2::jesus: is so FREAKING HOT that I just can't handle the thought. I think my TV would explode. Man, now y'all have me thinking dirty thoughts as I'm about to drive my daughter and her friends to the freaking mall. :beth:

    And, yeah, 'come to jesus' would never ever get old.

    Thanks for the shoutout Doc! It made me smile not gonna lie lol :)

    I don't read the comics so I'm not sure who Jesus would or should be with. Idk if he has arcs that revolve around him being gay or not. I've been thinking that they might make him straight on the show since they change things so much so I voted for that.

    If they make Jesus straight maybe he will be with Maggie eventually. I'm starting to get sad about Glenn the closer we get to 7.1 it's finally hitting me. I wish they'd just kill Abe and keep it moving :(

    I voted for Jesus and Aaron. Because I find both men to be very good looking. I am willing to risk my TV spontaneously combusting from their combined hotness if it means getting to see these two together. :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Jesus has a storyline about his relationships so they do have some arcs around him being gay. I don't think they would make him straight for a lot of different reasons and will probably follow his storyline in the comic.

    Yeah I just wasn't sure because I don't read the comics lol... But if I have to choose a guy I think probably a random. I feel like Aaron wouldnt be able to move on quick if Eric dies...so my guess is a random maybe a savior lol

    ETA: before anyone tags me and says it's Dwight...no... Just no, not my #3 lol :)

    I will say I like the thought of Jesus and Aaron in the comic and possibly TV show is
    because Jesus is seriously the classic bad boy and Aaron is so stalwart and solid which is why they are working so well in the comic. Like him checking on Aaron and Aaron being touched by his softness and caring is just...everything. And Jesus has that quiet and still waters running deep thing and Aaron is figuring out is depths so... Sorry Eric. :lol:

    Girl I don't think that was sexual tension, I think that was Daryl's exhaustion from running miles chasing the truck LOL :cute:

    I love the idea of Jesus and Aaron...
    (@MamaGrimes, I enjoy thier interactions in QoH... they are so cute, it's sickening)

    ... but I am also warming to the idea of Jesus and Father Gabriel.:gareth:

    But with this show, I half expect them to put Jesus with a rando or Dr. Harlan or something.

    Put behind a spoiler cut just in case.
    I'm waiting for them to actually interact in the show before I get attached, but the comic is making me love them so much that I hope it translates just as well into the show. In fact, I hope the show fleshes them out since the show does often expand past the comics. But I'm getting ahead of myself. They aren't even canon yet. :lol:

    Anyone but Daryl.

    I'm thinking...Andy, that Hilltop guy from 6.12, AKA rando. Or Aaron. Or maybe no one. He had a pretty good look at Rick naked. I wouldn't need anyone else in my life after witnessing such a beautiful sight. I'd be set for life!

    I love the idea of Jaron! I feel bad for Eric but the way this ZA is set up :omg:the likelihood is he won't survive and Jaron would compliment each other well :hearts:

    My guess that Daryl will be with Aaron and Jesus with Father G.

    I'm intrigued by the conversation that Tara has with Fr. G. about her lesbian lover in front of Jesus.

    S6-E12 : Not Tomorrow Yet

    Tara: You still a priest?

    Father G.: Rick and Carl taught me about guns, other weapons.
    How to contribute.
    I'm still a priest.


    Tara: I lied to my girlfriend this morning.
    I, um-- she caught me thinking about something, so I told her that I loved her.
    For the first time.
    That's how I told her,
    covering something up.

    Father G.: What were you covering?

    Tara: That I'd done something like this before.
    That I didn't like it.


    Jesus: Do you?

    Father G.: Do you love her?

    Tara: Yeah.

    Jesus: So, you know what you're fighting for.

    Tara: Hmm.

    Read more at: http://transcripts.foreverdreaming.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=25792

    In this short passage Jesus and Fr. G finish each other's sentence (thoughts)

    Tara confesses about lying to cover up her real feelings and motivations. Also that she has a pattern of behaviour that she is not proud of.

    So what has Fr. G really been lying about? Was it just that he was scared why he got his flocked killed by keeping them outside the doors of the church just a cover for something else? As for patterns go didn't he almost get TF thrown out of ASZ, exiled (same as killed). In the latter example we see that what he said to Deanna was a cover story that hid his true motivations. His real reason for wanting them kicked out was because they saw and knew what he truly was (He could not walk around the ASZ pretending to be someone he wasn't)... perhaps there is a real reason why he did not let in his flock and whatever they saw in him he wanted it to die with them, at the very least he couldn't stand the idea of being locked inside the church with them... including his wife. Just being alone inside with Michonne, Carl and the baby was enough to make him break out.

    After this conversation, I had expected Fr. G. to chicken out when push came to shove in the battle but he pulled through with the mission. And from this point you see a marked change in his demeanour, so much so that Rick not only leaves him in charge of Judith but all of ASZ when they head out to bring Maggie to Hilltop. It's like he has finally come into himself and accepted who he is... so know he knows what he is fighting for---and boy does he fight---without hesitation.

    Also, one can not avoid the religious names of this pairing...Jesus and Father Gabriel.

    HA!!! I think Father Gabriel will have a REAL "Come to Jesus" moment.

    I thought Father G was married to that woman with the glasses that came at him at the food bank? Or was she just a friend?
    I want Father G to find love, I hadn't given any thought to him being gay...

    Yesterday I was trying to remember whether I imagined someone sitting between Jesus and Father Gabriel, confessing something, but I couldn't remember for anything. Thanks for this!

    "Oh look, Eric is dead so lets have Aaron get with the only other homosexual guy on the show" is way too artificial for me. If Jesus turns out to be homosexual, maybe some newer character released down the line.

    However, we don't even know Jesus's sexual orientation for the show yet.
