I'm still of the mind Tom did this to himself. His chickens are coming home to roost. The seeds he's sown are bearing fruit. He knew Star was into his good friend Star. He knew that his own feelings were healing cleanly and that he was willing to move past that chapter in his life without regret or anger. And then the fool decides to jump right back to where he was previously.
What's curious is how Marco fits into this. With the whole Kelly's world thing, it seems he's trying to move onward too. But now he's got a legitimate choice once again. We know StarTom seems like it's basically just hanging on for appearances sake, but Marco legitimately has his choice available. I'm rooting for Starco, but what I'm curious about is more *why* Marco would decide to go one way or another... if it's purely based on the past, I kinda feel he's falling into the same trap Tom did. Taking an opportunity simply because it was available. But if there's something more, I wanna hear it. To get that delicious starco nectar that's been missing for far too long.
