emotional abuse is so difficult to deal with because there’s so much doubt involved, there’s nothing concrete and physical like bruises or smacked skin, it’s subtle and you wonder if you’re just too sensitive or you have a victim complex. in fact you feel bad about even calling it…
can i talk for a moment about dirkjake? because i really haven’t in a long long time.
i think this scene is really important in exposing some of jake’s true character. no matter how manly and strong and heroic he wants to be, he’s really just a scared kid who lost his grandma when he was little.
one of the major listed reasons for the breakup was that jake was frightened by the amount of attention that dirk was giving him, and that’s probably because he lived alone on an island for his entire life.
when it comes down to this though, jake’s only friend is (brain ghost) dirk, whom he depends on for a sense of safety and security. for jake, dirk basically knows everything. even if the dirk is imaginary, he’s the subconscious director of jake’s thoughts (because jake knows these things, but he’s just too frightened to actually act on it and he needs dirk’s support to help him through it).
dirk, likewise does show a certain sense of insecurity that he wants jake to help him out with (i.e. his endless messages to jake pre-breakup). his constant messages to jake reflect loneliness in a different direction (while jake was overwhelmed, dirk wants attention).
so in short, they may not be romantically smooching each other’s faces off and swooning over each other, but they definitely need each other. they make each other feel safe.
