"Plus, it ended with — Oh my god, I can’t believe I’ve held this in for a whole paragraph and a half — Carson and Mrs. Hughes, To-ge-ther. Like, totally drunk in love! Okay, fine — definitely not drunk, probably not in love, but still: holding hands, barefoot, while walking into the ocean. This is major.
“You can always hold my hand if you need to feel steady,” “Hughes told him. “I don’t know how, but you managed to make that sound a little risqué,” Carson replied. “And if I did?” she said right back, clearly coming on to him hard-CORE. “We’re getting on, Mr. Carson, you and I. We can afford to live a little.” And then they pressed on, butler and head housekeeper against the current, borne back ceaselessly toward the future … or something. The point is, it was lovely and, hopefully, a sign of a Carson/Hughes romance to come.”
