I can't get enough of watching that clip. The staff has admitted some subtext between the two but it's pretty obvious right there. For a while it seemed like they were the only two people in the scene. Alex didn't even stop looking at Olivia until Elliot spoke up.
I'm pretty new here so I'm going to give a bit of an insight of where I stand on Alex/Olivia. Of course the subtext is there but I don't think that it's going into evolve into something more. I think it's going to stay pretty subtle and let the shippers/viewers think what they want to between the two. And I'm just fine with that. I personally think they had a relationship on the DL at one point. Looking at all the episodes I've seen so far, I see Olivia as the kind of person that doesn't label things. I think she would fall in love with anyone regardless of gender. When it comes down to it I really don't care who's she's with as long as she is happy because we all know that she deserves it. One exception would be Stabler because he has a wife, kids, and I think it would be against both of their characters to get together.
I'm so glad someone else has finally started replying to this post again, I was starting to get lonely and feel as if I was talking to myself! LOL
I too am okay with there just being subtexts between Olivia and Alex because I think things would be too complicated for them as well as the viewers if it was out in the open. I think then too much would be expected and it would just muddy up the waters, but subtexts are left up to our imaginations as well as Olivia and Alex can have their own little secret among themselves too and sometimes its just better that way.
I dont think they have ever had a relationship on the DL only because I dont think either one of them would cheat on the other, although Alex cheated on Robert in Conviction, I think the relationships we have seen Alex in which would be Jim Steele, her engagement to Robert, that guy she obviously left once she was out of WP who she was sleeping together while there, and even the date we saw her on in Angels with Trevor Langon of all people!! I think Alex had such trouble committing to men because deep within her heart she wants to be with Olivia. Olivia also has had no success with men and I think it is because of the same reason; she wants to be with Alex.
I, too, have noticed all too much the scene at the end of Loss. The second Olivia sees Alex she just starts to cry and Alex is crying, too, but the part that really nails it for me is right before they tell Alex it's time to go....its after Olivia asks how long Alex will be gone for and Alex starts to cry and then the two of them just stare at each other and Alex is nodding her head at Olivia as if she is talking to her. It's like the two of them have their own secret language that only they understand and when they are together the rest of the world just disappears and it is just the two of them. That is more than just a friendly relationship....there is something there...something deep....I knew it 100% in that scene alone.
I want Olivia to be happy because she most certainly deserves it, but I do not want her with "just anyone".
Keep this thread going with me!!!
