To be honest, I was, one of those, that felt a chill creep into the deepest recesses of my heart when I heard that TeukSo had gone for a wedding photoshoot because, like it or not, history has had it that couples on WGM left the show within weeks of the shoot. But the more that I chewed on it, the more I figured that this does not necessarily mean that it is the end of the road for TeukSo.
For one, Teukie, at least, has been open with how he actually likes being on the programme. Well. Not quite worded as directly as that, but he has protested against allegations of the programme being cancelled during the Dark Void. And with how Teukie is about work, if we are going to take this purely from a work point of view, I do not think that he is going to let this one run away that soon, especially since that means the possibility of free time for him and he has resolved (for better or worse) to break his back working all the way till he enlists.
That and there is Teukie’s introduction to Sora’s parents at the photoshoot itself. I have watched and followed a number of couples on WGM, and unless it was those that I skipped over watching, I do not recall having couples meet parents shortly before break-ups. It just does not make sense. If they were really moving to take them off-air, I do not think that her parents would have appeared this late into the game, IF the game was really coming to an end. No matter how I look at it, there is no need to add to an equation that is a lost cause. You only add to it if there is value to the addition. Bringing extra people in means more work (and stress) for the crew too, so I honestly do not think that people are going to bother themselves with dealing with extras if TeukSo was going to end their run soon.
That said, TeukSo’s run IS going to end and pretty soon as well because of Teukie’s looming military duties. But I have faith that if Teukie is going to make an exit, he is going to do it on his own terms. And if I take this in light of his recent comments, it will not be till Enlistment Day.
Chin up folks! Tis all not over till the fat lady sings! ^^
