>>96868765>Club Snubbed: 90% of the episode Star still can't even stand to be in the same room as Tom
Yes it's called sexual tension. The whole plot of the episode is that Star and Tom are deliberately avoiding each other in order to make each other jealous because they both still have some feelings for each other.>then they dance and suddenly she's okay with him again despite how stupid and rushed that is.
Wow Star getting woo'd by dancing with a boy, who could have imagined that would happen.
Especially when the episode specifically pointed out that they've danced together at this exact ball for years, always dancing with each other first, both being considered the best dancers there.
Almost like they recreated a literally magical moment between them, something special they had shared together for years.
Like Tom in retrospect was clearly trying to recreate at the Blood Moon Ball.
hmmm>But she specifically tells him she only wants him to be a friend.
She tells him that before they dance and make up.
Then they dance and she swoons over him again.
Then he asks her out for a corn shake some time, and she says she'd like that. Basically a date, but not NECESSARILY romantic, like when Marco and Jackie go to the movies in Naysaya. But at the same time it obviously could be a lead-in to a romance.
Especially since she ends the episode with a smile and longing look towards him.>Demonicism: the only actual romantic development is the very last scene where they're holding hands.
You left out the part where the episode starts with her calling him back about that date she agreed to, further demonstrating her clear interest in giving him another chance.
Like, you know, she already did before in Blood Moon Ball.>Which is so low-key (Star is grabby like that with all her friends)
No, she's like that with Marco.
Not any other boys.>most of the audience still had doubts whether they were actually going to get together
Pony Head's reaction made the implication obvious.
