At 6:00 AM, Irulan tells Marc that he needs to go. Keep in mind that, according to the editors, this is less than an hour after the previous scene. In an interview, Irulan says that she feels uncomfortable with Marc, because he's making comments to let her know that she could take it further if she wanted. You think? I only got that vibe from him, like, six hours earlier! Irulan asks him if he's sleeping there, and he says no. She asks if he's sure. She asks if he's sure! She's claiming in the interviews that she wanted him to leave, and that she was uncomfortable the whole time, but now we see her pretty much asking him to stay longer. She has had plenty of opportunities to ditch him, and hasn't taken them. In an interview, Irulan says that because Marc is her boss, she's not as assertive as she should be. Oh, bull freaking shit. She is not that woman that Mike Tyson raped in his hotel room. She's continued flirting with him, even after he started exhibiting behavior that she now claims made her uncomfortable. She invited him back to her place. She told him to get into bed with Arissa. She asked him to sleep there. As far as we know, Arissa is still in the room with them, and at the very least, her other roommates are still in the suite -- not to mention the tons of cameras on them. She knows that she's not in any real danger, and if she wanted to say no, or if God forbid he started forcing himself on her, she could get out of it. I think her problem is that she's realizing she made a mistake and is now trying to spin it by playing the boss angle to explain away her behavior instead of just taking some fucking responsibility for her own actions. I just get so upset by this because when women like Irulan won't take responsibility for their actions, it cheapens the claims of people who were actual victims of sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Deep breath. Anyway, Irulan starts trying to get Marc to look at a picture of her boyfriend. He won't, but then she tricks him into looking. In an interview, Irulan says that she doesn't feel comfortable saying she wants him to leave her alone and get his hands off her, and maybe that's what needs to be said. You think? Irulan starts getting out of bed, and Marc tries to pull her back in. She throws his arm off and says no. Too little, too late, I think. Also, he's a scuzz. And grody. I don't know if I mentioned that.
