Anonymous asked: I might be dumb or not educated enough but how can something that's not written in the script and added by the actors (and therefore unplanned by JT or the writers) be considered as main text subtext? Educate me please :)
Now I think you’re baiting me.
I said early today: I understand the concept of subtext when discussing the pop culture understanding of the meaning in relation to tv shows, movies, books, video games, etc.
Using pop culture understanding as a focal point, subtext refers to the implied (intentional or unintentional) meaning behind dialogue and actions that may be interpreted as showing there is something more going on than what we see on the screen.
Bottom line, subtext doesn’t have to exist only if it is intended by the writers. It exists because it exists. Subtext is a type of interpretation based on all elements presented to the viewing audience.
