The song completely works for the scene, within the context of everything that surrounds the characters (Lily is also daydreaming about what if Holden were more like Dusty and vice-versa, which plays out later when Lily unexpectedly sees and is shocked by Holden wearing his Miami Vice inspired outfit for the opening of the Mona Lisa) , especially now that I was able to watch the video and listen to a clear recording of the song. I wonder whether the music supervisor, etc. chose the music before or after the scene was blocked and rehearsed? During post production? Or perhaps as soon as they got a copy of the script? It seems tailor made for the scene.
One thing about the video itself. Instead of watching that awkward dancing, I'd rather they just have a slideshow of 1980s Brian Bloom throughout the video, lol.
They are trying to haze her. That's what this is like: some sick sorority style hazing where she has to collapse and be 'vulnerable' and then she is embraced by the ghoulish mob telling her it'll all be OK...it's really bizarre.
Chase taking a darker turn, at least for a little while, would've been the shot in the arm that this storyline needed. Instead, we get a bs arc with pain in the ass Austin which ultimately resulted in nothing. I don't get how any producer or writer or fan would want it like this.
And then after he's done raising hell for Willow and Michael, you have Brook Lynn to bring him back to his normal self, and have them finally become a couple.
