I don’t necessarily agree that if S/C were using their chemistry to sell a show they were gas lighting fans. Using the actors & main couple to sell a show has been done for decades- before there was social media or even celeb magazines. S/C would not be the first or last. It was done as the age old marketing tool to sell a movie or show. As soon as they saw there was line crossing from fans = IFH. I don’t think it’s fair to only blame S/C. Fans refuse to accept their part in all this too.

I think it was all sincere, that they were just so naive in the beginning, but from tptb perspective yes, they could have seen what they had and been using it to their advantage. Not a new tactic. There will always be a few out of line fans just by the numbers and the nature of it all, and yes, up until January 2016 there were lines crossed, absolutely. And if Sam and Cait’s behaviour had changed then, I would agree with you. But it’s three years later and the only things that have changed are that they have tried to tone down their public displays without much success and added in random Someone Elses who obviously never passed a chemistry test. It’s a catch 22…for sure it would be easier for them to pull this off if fans didn’t react the way they do and easier for fans to react ‘appropriately‘ if we knew what we were reacting to. I think it’s kind of hilarious really, that the louder she says ‘I’m engaged’ over and over the harder we laugh, but I’m sure it must be infuriating. But if you’re going to lie, then the less you say the better. So suck it up, scroll and ignore.
