So I was watching the Season 5 season finale of The Wonder Years and something struck me as odd.
Winnie spends the entire episode angry at Kevin for checking out another girl, which is great and all, but in the final moments of the episode, Kevin confronts her and they argue and it’s melodramatic.
Then Winnie says this: “Oh shut up” and then grabs him by the face and they kiss passionately as the music swells and the camera pulls out into a an extreme wide shot.
my question is this: does this kinda thing really happen?
We’ve all kind of seen this happen in movies and television before, but I’ve never once experienced it or heard about people doing it.
Can you really spend a reasonable amount of time angry at someone for a very valid reason then just say fuck it, kiss them, and completely ignore it ever happened?
in theory, and writing, of course it’s possible and seems to actually be a very attractive solution, but in realistic application?
