They're Ratched, Together

I knew it, I KNEW it! I knew I got a decidedly deranged “Carol” vibe off the first trailer and stills for “Ratched,”Ryan Murphy’s next all-star horror fest about what made the infamous Nurse Ratched into The Infamous Nurse Racthed. And I was right.

Sarah Paulson and Cynthia Nixon, two real-life queer actresses, are indeed playing queer for each other on screen as Mildred Ratched and Gwendolyn Briggs in the new series. The Hollywood Reporter review for the new show outs Mildred and Gwendolyn’s relationship, describing the latter as the former’s “love interest.” It also preps all us gay lady fans for:

“An oyster-eating scene between the reticent, touch-averse Mildred and the generous but guarded Gwendolyn in the second episode, directed by Murphy, is destined to be savored over and over by a certain segment of the viewership.
” That’s us! We are that certain segment of the viewership. And, if it is anything like Sarah taking a bite out of that peach, we are in for quite the treat. Say what you will about Ryan Murphy, and I certainly have, but he on occasion he can come all the way through for us queer ladies. So if nothing else, I kook forward to this scene. And, if it’s anything like a normal Ryan Murphy production, losing interest between half and three-quarters of the way through.

You’re 1000% right about Ryan Murphy. Both that He is a good friend of that certain segment of the viewership and also the losing interest part.
But I’m convinced One day we will all be praising RM for being a champion of representation, not just LGBT but also for differently abled people
