I'm not canceling the wake or anything, but here's yet another piece of wreckage for the real!Jack believers to cling to:
I wonder how this even managed to get out, considering how avid the early spoilers and promos have been to cater to the Anti-Ship fandom.
Tell me how this shows anything like Jack being all about Ianto, Jack NOT wanting/loving Gwen, and especially Ianto being OK with Jack's desire to lay hands on Gwen. (It doesn't matter whether Gwen is interested or not. It's Jack's hands, I'm concerned with.) I swear, it could be fan art for Intervention or Laughter In The Hub. Jack has a free hand. If he wanted to touch Ianto, he could. They could at least have made it suggestive of J/I/G, but no. That is clinging Ianto and Jack only touching Gwen. (Can anyone say WLB and BUFT?)
I'm still sure the CA&C (Character Assassination and Castration) is going on as planned, but the fact this is being photographed and distributed along with the schmoopy-oopy twu-wuvvvy puke-fest stuff means they're at least acknowledging that there's something besides the Anti-ship. (At least the publicity department, not necessarily RTD.)
Temporary happy-dancing ensues. (Stalkers may commence snarking.)
