What happened to they’re Sexy moves?
The disparity between their dancing between season 1 and season 2 is actually kind of interesting. It also is about perception and characterization that Tatiana has clearly put a lot of thought and effort into.
With Helena in season 1, she’s a trained assassin, essentially in the middle of her job. She’s probably been trained to emulate those around her, to blend in. Even the viewer’s perception of her at this point is as a cold-blooded killer and this just drives it home - it’s as if she has no remorse; she just cut off a man’s tail and is dancing with it in a club.
But in season 2, she’s humanized - child-like in a way and certainly has not experienced the same sort of growing pains that the other clones have had. She has no inhibitions about being herself in that moment in Felix’s loft so she expresses herself exactly as she feels, unreservedly.
With Alison, it’s the exact opposite. happyjacq wrote an excellent post about how Alison and Helena are essentially foils of each other. Alison is most comfortable in her suburban surroundings, following a regimented fitness routine. She’s essentially created this perfect life around herself as a shield against the realities of being a clone, but she can’t neglect that her inauguration into clone club has also introduced her to Felix.
It’s Felix that draws her out of her shell, which is particularly evident when he dances with her. Once he’s left the frame, though, you’re left with… well. Shuffle-dancing Alison.
You dreamt of another sky. New sun, new air, new life. A whole universe teeming with life. Why stand still when there’s all that life out there?
