Concerning his sudden improvement in eyesight, I'm going to hazard a guess. Barring some off-panel revelation or something that snuck past us on-panel, I'm going to hypothesize that the sex did improve his eyesight. I'm familiar with a form of massage called reflexology, in which certain areas or "buttons" are massaged in one part of the body (like the feet or hands) to stimulate areas in other parts of the body. Shiatsu massage, zone therapy, and acupressure are very closely related. My hypothesis is that, in the course of lovemaking, Hilary managed to reflex the right buttons on Pip's body to stimulate the nerves and blood flow to his eyes which would help reverse whatever was affecting his vision. Presumably, his poor vision was caused by something easily correctable, like the lenses couldn't focus right due to muscles around his eyes being too tense or something. I'm going to further guess that she most likely picked up this sort of thing during her time in porn, although I doubt she knows of its healing effects.
If so, this would be a compliment to Hilary's lovemaking abilities. In a sense, sex with Hilary is so good, it really will fix what ails you.
Pip's improved eyesight won't be permanent, though. His eyes' health has been out of whack for years so he's used to it. In the end, his vision will be improved some, but for it to stay at this new level of improvement, he'll need further treatments. Considering Pip's not likely to be familiar with reflexology or related, he'll assume sex with Hilary did it, but he can't tell her about it or he'll risk her using it to manipulate him. He's likely to be wanting a repeat anyway. Hilary-ity ensues.
It might be anticlimactic to you and me, but to Pip, whose vision must have been poor for much of his life, it's like sex, only better in some ways. For example, it lasts longer, and he can safely go out in public while it lasts.GdoubleWB wrote:My first impression is that this is kind of an anticlimactic follow-up for such an interesting (nudge nudge, wink wink) turn of events....
"HUASHUASHUASHUASHUASHUAS" is a onomatopoeia of laughter, just like "hahaha", "heehee", and "jejeje" are. Different people, especially when they're used to a different language, will transcribe it differently.not_cenaris wrote:What does this mean?
