Rewarding per the Mods request.
Are they deliberately writing or acting same sex subtext into the show? There has been some indication in the past that the writers considered the subtext there but that the text was something else. Is it consistent or are there points in the series you think they wrote it and have backed off from it? Is it just a matter of the actors chemistry and not in the writing at all?
Is making magic together a metaphor or not?
