12 Monkeys is filled with moments between or beyond the dialogue—often the moments easily missed. I’d like to share a few of them with you so that we can fully appreciate them.
Today we’re taking a closer look at… well… the otter eyes. Some of you may have noticed this on the first viewing. I didn’t. I only realized until people were talking about otter eyes on Twitter or Tumblr (I don’t recall which), and I asked what they were referring to.
Because Jennifer starts calling Cole “otter eyes”, and she does it repeatedly. Did you notice? And while it may sound like an insult at first, I actually believe it’s more of a term of endearment. She likes him for some reason, trusts him. He gets a nickname because of that.
And, well… Aaron Stanford does have nice eyes. Not sure otter eyes would be the first thing coming to my mind, but I’d like to think that works — in a weird Jennifer Goines kind of way.
