S1E3 鈥 Hard Times Write Up P3 - Paris (1793) and St. James鈥檚 Park (1862)
Tumblr media
Alright, first thing鈥檚 first for this scene. For those of you that haven鈥檛 seen the script, the translation of the executioner鈥檚 entrance speech is as follows:
Ah, the music of the blade, and the joy of the people. Beautiful, no? Now, let us inspect your neck.
Alas, nothing of hidden meaning there. Something I did pick up on when I was watching this scene back is that just after the executioner鈥檚 (Jean-Claude) entrance, an execution takes place offscreen. It鈥檚 talked about, and we are informed that the victim here was female. In what seems to be a really dark bit of humour here, it actually sounds like this is a botched execution. The audio for this scene is below - you鈥檒l need to listen carefully as the script continues over the background soundtrack, but to me it sounds like we hear the falling of the blade, followed by a female scream that does not stop when we hear the thump of the guillotine hitting its target.
Jean-Claude even laments over the poor work that the executioner does, and that Aziraphale is lucky that he will not be executed by the inexperienced knave. I have a pretty dark sense of humour, but even I feel like I would rather believe the screams we can hear are of a spectator, perhaps a loved one of the condemned, distressed at the scene. *shudder*
Moving on to something a bit lighter, we have a reminder of the noise we should be associating with Crowley鈥檚 time freeze miracles 鈥 that little wobble board noise played over the miracle whoosh (not to mention the underlying tingly sort of noise that can be heard throughout the scene as the time freeze stays in place). Just why Aziraphale doesn鈥檛 realise that Jean-Claude has frozen until Crowley actually speaks is a mystery to me. Too caught up in his own impending administrative perils perhaps. What is less mysterious is how the angel feels about Crowley鈥檚 unannounced arrival in his cell.
Tumblr media
There鈥檚 no denying that Aziraphale is delighted that Crowley has appeared 鈥 that little smile is pure reflex and he all but breathes his name. I鈥檓 sure some people will read it as relief as his friend showing up just when he needs help, but I am not one of them. The painfully obvious once over that he gives Crowley tells us everything we need to know about Aziraphale鈥檚 true feelings here. And then there鈥檚 that 鈥済ood Lord鈥 line 鈥 it鈥檚 not the only time we hear somebody refer to Crowley in this way. It鈥檚 an interesting choice of words for sure and if it wasn鈥檛 for the way that the angel is drooling looking at Crowley, who I should point out hasn鈥檛 exactly positioned himself in what one might call a demure pose, I鈥檇 say that he was trying to sound disdainful.
We鈥檙e treated to the first (chronologically speaking) mention of the book shop in this scene. There are a couple of other sources that fill in some gaps for us on this front 鈥 Neil himself confirmed that Aziraphale bought the land for the shop in the 1630s and the Script Book contains a deleted scene that shows the book shop would be opened in 1800. Seeing as it鈥檚 a feature of the series that will become so integral, it鈥檚 nice that we鈥檙e given a bit of its backstory.
We鈥檙e also given a bit of insight to Aziraphale鈥檚 insatiable appetite for human food in this scene. Whilst we as the audience have already been given some context around this, it鈥檚 only now we see just how strong his attachment to food is. After all, he abandoned his book shop opening plans and travelled to Paris at the height of a revolution that targeted the aristocracy whilst dressed head-to-toe in finery just to get some crepes. Crowley鈥檚 expression of disbelief when he finds out that this foolish errand has been driven by pastry-lust feels as though it embodies the thought process of everyone bearing witness to this conversation:
Tumblr media
Aziraphale doesn鈥檛 appear to think his actions are out of order though. What鈥檚 interesting is that his attention is engaged not by the dressing-down he鈥檚 receiving, but by Crowley鈥檚 use of a particular phrase:
Tumblr media
There鈥檚 an incredibly subtle eyebrow raise at Crowley鈥檚 use of the word 鈥渘ibble鈥 鈥 it comes a split second before he talks about Aziraphale鈥檚 choice of clothing. It鈥檚 a real blink-and-you鈥檒l-miss-it moment, so I cut it and slowed it down a little to demonstrate:
Tumblr media
As if the angel hadn鈥檛 given enough of a clue about how he鈥檚 feeling about Crowley鈥檚 presence. Honestly, he needs to tell his face to stop giving away his heart鈥檚 desires so obviously. Though I鈥檓 not sure how much of his heart is involved in that flirty little expression.
At this point we find out that Aziraphale has been reprimanded for performing too many frivolous miracles, to which Crowley responds that the angel is lucky he was in the area. This does raise an interesting question about Crowley always being around when Aziraphale most needs him.
Tumblr media
There鈥檚 something quite knowing about this exchange 鈥 as if they know luck really didn鈥檛 have anything to do with it. I don鈥檛 think that they were in Paris together, or that Aziraphale even knew Crowley was in Paris - the bit of the conversation about the book shop opening and Crowley鈥檚 disbelief at the purpose of the trip is enough for me to believe Aziraphale genuinely didn鈥檛 know of the other鈥檚 proximity. I do however think that it鈥檚 unlikely this is the first time that Crowley has 鈥渃onveniently鈥 been in just the right place at the right time for Aziraphale, and that they both know there鈥檚 more at play than luck. My money鈥檚 on Crowley always knowing exactly where Aziraphale is, somehow managing to keep tabs on him in a non-creepy way, purely because he knows the angel has an uncanny knack for getting into trouble. For confirmation of his love of being Aziraphale鈥檚 knight in shining armour, see season 2, episode 5.
Right before we see the manacles miraculously fall off Aziraphale鈥檚 wrists, we can, if we鈥檙e really eagle-eyed, see another one of those micro-expressions that betray Aziraphale鈥檚 feelings. It鈥檚 off the back of Crowley鈥檚 indignant response that he has somehow been entirely responsible for the Reign of Terror currently occupying Paris. It鈥檚 minute, but it conveys so much to me 鈥 Aziraphale knows that Crowley isn鈥檛 really interested in causing anything so heinous and is basking in being reminded of that.
Tumblr media
It鈥檚 worth noting the leagues of difference in Crowley鈥檚 reaction to being told 鈥渢hank you for the rescue鈥 and being called 鈥渘ice鈥 as we saw in episode 2. Here he simply (vehemently) tells the angel not to say 鈥渞escue鈥. No violence, no grabbing of lapels, no hissing in Aziraphale鈥檚 face. The words might be different, but the sentiment is most definitely the same, and yet the two reactions are light years apart. If I might be forgiven for referring to my own head canon for a moment, this actually makes sense. As a reminder, it鈥檚 my belief that Crowley and Aziraphale actually form a romantic relationship as of the day of Adam鈥檚 birth, some 200+ years in the future from Paris. This reaction we see from Crowley in the Bastille is a genuine and simple one, whereas (I believe) the wall slam at Tadfield Manor is the beginning of some sexual role play. It鈥檚 no wonder the two reactions are so different really. That said, I do not think Aziraphale isn鈥檛 playing some sort of role play game here 鈥 his insistence that he was unable to miracle himself out of the cell is rudely undermined when he performs a 鈥渇rivolous miracle鈥 just to change his clothes so that the two of them can go to lunch together. If Crowley鈥檚 preference for playing the hero was known to him, it suddenly makes sense why Aziraphale wouldn鈥檛 just miracle himself out of the cell, safe in the knowledge that Crowley would do it for him. He even defends his choice to miracle his own clothes to the demon, and it鈥檚 a pretty weak excuse.
Tumblr media
I think it鈥檚 just a shame we don鈥檛 see Crowley鈥檚 face when he hears this, but what we do see is Aziraphale鈥檚 expression of resignation when he realises that he has to miracle his own change of clothes. It鈥檚 as if he knows the game has come to an end so now he has to stop the pretence of not being able to help himself. It鈥檚 charming really. What鈥檚 also interesting is that in switching clothes with Jean-Claude, he condemns the man to an almost instant death, yet he seems to have no qualms about the consequences of his actions in the slightest. He doesn鈥檛 even react to Crowley鈥檚 little dig that Jean-Claude was 鈥渁sking for trouble鈥 dressed in Aziraphale鈥檚 clothes.
Tumblr media
The last exchange of this scene still delivers with subtext 鈥 it鈥檚 interesting that Crowley asks Aziraphale what鈥檚 for lunch whilst showing no preference whatsoever. He doesn鈥檛 even look affected when the angel declares joyfully that crepes are the first thing on his mind. Given that I believe Crowley to take much more pleasure in watching Aziraphale eat than eating himself, I think this question more likely means 鈥渨hat do I get to watch you eat for lunch?鈥. It鈥檚 a pleasant, light way to end this scene, which has had its fair share of dark humour squirreled away in its corners.
Tumblr media
The first thing I noticed about this scene is that the placard announcing the date and location are different from all the other instances where this device is used. Firstly, both the location and date are on the same side of the sign. Secondly, this instance is the only one that doesn鈥檛 thrust itself upon the camera lens, instead being submerged in water. It stands out as being different, but I don鈥檛 know that there鈥檚 anything of meaning in it other than it鈥檚 used as a way to set the scene.
Speaking of setting the scene, we have another instance of David Arnold鈥檚 musical mastery with his treatment of the main theme for the soundtrack as we zoom in on Crowley and Aziraphale. The use of the harpsichord gives it a more Baroque feel, rather than being of the Romantic period that 1862 would actually fall into. To me it summons thoughts of Austen-era balls and olde-world courtships with their highly formal etiquette, all which would have taken place about 100 years prior to this scene, so I do find it interesting that it鈥檚 been chosen to orchestrate the theme in this way. Nevertheless, it鈥檚 a very pretty arrangement and definitely makes us feel that we鈥檙e still in England in a time when society had strict rules that needed to be adhered to.
Quick side note: the jacket Aziraphale is wearing in this scene appears to be the same one from the paintballing scene, which he says he has owned for over 180 years. This scene takes place approximately 155 years before the present day of this season, so even at this point he鈥檚 already owned that jacket for more than 25 years.
There鈥檚 a strange formality between the two of them in this scene, right from the start. Crowley doesn鈥檛 even look at Aziraphale as they鈥檙e talking to one another, staring stubbornly straight ahead.
Tumblr media
Crowley opens the conversation with, what I think, is a really strange line:
What if it all goes wrong? We鈥檝e got a lot in common, you and me鈥
It consists of two very different ideas that I just can鈥檛 seem to make have meaning when you put them together in one sentence. Not only that, I can鈥檛 even really make much sense out of the second part of the sentence 鈥 it just makes me want to utter the age-old phrase 鈥渁nd鈥?鈥. If anybody has any ideas on this one, I鈥檓 all ears.
This weirdly awkward meeting continues with Aziraphale鈥檚 belittling of Crowley from his first words, which he tries to shrug off, only to have the angel continue to make light of their companionship, claiming that the only thing their partnership is good for is to satisfy the agreement, making sure they 鈥渟tay out of each other鈥檚 way鈥. This whole interaction just feels so out of character for the pair, particularly given that we鈥檝e just seen them gleefully heading off to have lunch together not 30 seconds previously.
Tumblr media
Crowley鈥檚 summation of his fall from Heaven here could be telling us a lot about his state of mind when he was still an angel 鈥 to me it sounds as if he鈥檚 saying that his mindset hasn鈥檛 actually shifted very far, and that it wasn鈥檛 a sharp sudden descent into his demonic state of being but a gradual (and willing) move. It鈥檚 a very different point of view from what we know Aziraphale holds: that there are only two states of being for ethereal beings 鈥 good or evil. It鈥檚 something we see a lot throughout the series 鈥 the comparison of the two opposing opinions on morality, along with the idea that Crowley is much happier in his 鈥渓imbo鈥 state than Aziraphale, who constantly fights against the notion that he is anything other than purely good.
Despite the fact that it鈥檚 painfully obvious that Crowley is really struggling with what he鈥檚 asking (there鈥檚 a little gulp before he mentions things going pear-shaped that says an awful lot, not to mention the attempts at deflection with his talk of ears), Aziraphale really isn鈥檛 listening to his friend in the slightest. Apart from the word 鈥減ears鈥. Surely Crowley should know by now that any use of food-related language is going to send the angel into fantasyland?
Tumblr media
Aziraphale really proves that he hasn鈥檛 been listening at the point where he finally starts paying attention, though in an ironic twist he has to ask Crowley what he鈥檚 been talking about. The further ironic twist is that he starts listening at exactly the point that Crowley will only communicate his needs in writing (I鈥檓 not sure why it was necessary to write down the words 鈥渉oly water鈥 when they鈥檙e standing in broad daylight having a conversation out loud鈥). He鈥檚 clearly distressed at Crowley鈥檚 request though and his instant refusal to get him what he wants prompts the demon to look at him, albeit briefly, for the first time in this scene.
Tumblr media
As little light side note here, I love how Crowley鈥檚 handwriting looks so childish on the slip of paper he hands to Aziraphale:
Tumblr media
It feels so appropriate for his character that, even after 6000 years, he really has no interest in investing time to improve his writing skills. And what鈥檚 with the underline? Trying to convey how important he feels his request is? Whatever the reason, it just compounds the idea that this note was written with someone with the emotional IQ of an amoeba, which is far from the case.
We start to see how distressed Aziraphale is at what he thinks Crowley is asking for at this point.
Tumblr media
He impassioned plea comes complete with a little gasping breath before he speaks that鈥檚 almost heartbreaking. What I find really interesting about the way he handles this situation is that his distress turns to anger very quickly. When he tells Crowley that he would be in trouble if their liaisons were ever discovered, I read that as him appealing to the demon to try and remind him that they are both at risk doing what they鈥檙e doing. Not only that, but there鈥檚 no way that he鈥檚 going to provide Crowley with an 鈥渆asy鈥 way out, which I suspect is his way of telling the demon that he doesn鈥檛 get to leave him behind. Pity he has to use a word that鈥檚 pretty aggravatory to try and hammer his point home 鈥 I think his choice would likely be driven by what Heaven would call their meetings, rather than how he sees them, but Crowley has already been told he can鈥檛 have what he鈥檚 asking for and is in no mood to allow Aziraphale any slip ups at this point.
Tumblr media
That word clearly rubs Crowley up the wrong way (and rightly so I say, fancy trivialising 6000 years of companionship in as base a way as to call it 鈥渇raternising鈥). In his defence, Aziraphale does try to take it back, but it鈥檚 too late 鈥 they鈥檙e both too emotional charged at this point to see any sense. Crowley鈥檚 scathing response that he has plenty of other people he can 鈥渇raternise鈥 with is perhaps not meant as a snipe to undermine their friendship further, but an angry declaration that whilst he might do that with others, it is not how he would choose to describe the interactions with the angel. If that is the subtext, Aziraphale misses it, seeing only the insinuation that Crowley is claiming he has plenty of people he can hang around with, making him less important.
Despite the seriousness of the subject matter driving the argument, we are once again leaving this location and time period with a bit of lightness.
Tumblr media
My instinctive response to Aziraphale鈥檚 awkward storming off and disposal of Crowley鈥檚 note, along with Crowley鈥檚 snotty closing remark? A little groan followed by the disdainful muttering of 鈥渂loody children鈥︹.
As always, comments, questions, discussions, all welcome!

My new track is a dreamy instrumental inspired by the flurry of emotions, limerance, anxiety and wonder of new love. I have been doing some soundtracks lately and this piece was for a dance scene between two Lesbian characters falling for each other, so I tried to evoke the ancient world of Sappho and the mystical beauty of those distant times while centering the character' emotions. Hope you enjoy!
If you like it, I have put a collection of some of my unreleased soundtrack work in the Bandcamp version as bonus tracks! Name your price and pretty sure you can stream them on there too. I hope it can be the soundtrack to some of your moments!
