“SpeakBeasty” Episode 152: “Never Enough Kissing”
In this episode of SpeakBeasty, hosts Ann, Amy, Geoff, and Shannen dive into the complicated arc that is Jacob and Queenie’s relationship.
Starting with the very first film, our hosts walk us through each of the scenes the couple shares. We touch on all the significant moments and milestones, those of love and those of turmoil. Our analysis of this relationship takes a look at the importance of looking past surface attraction and the importance of choice and free will.
We discuss how Queenie and Jacob’s relationship is used to pull the story of the entire series forward and what we think could happen in a potential next film now that their love story seems to have been resolved.
Speaking of resolved… did their ending live up to our expectations? Our hosts discuss how they wanted more conflict and higher stakes for the couple in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and how the series could have benefitted from drawing out Queenie’s realization that she had made a mistake going with Grindelwald.
