What really drags it down for me is that it wasn't subtle at all. SJ is a cartoon that sometimes didn't need dialogue to convey what's happening in an episode. Here we have boner jokes to show the sexual tension between the characters and to keep hammering down over and over. If it had been more walking through the desert and smiling at each other not saying a thing, then a sudden kiss at the end I'd not be mad at all. I regret being so hard against the anons that claimed Ashi ruins the show because that's how it felt this episode.
At least I always love to see tumblr mad.
