If I see another person saying 4x05 was the best balat episode ever, I'm gonna go insane, so I thought I'd share with you the enormous mistakes the writers have made with Effy's character.
According to the symptoms Effy had in her episode, she is not only psychologically depressed, she is schizophrenic.
Here is the diagnosis for schizophrenia:
People diagnosed with schizophrenia usually experience a combination of positive (i.e. hallucinations, delusions, racing thoughts), negative (i.e. apathy, lack of emotion, poor or nonexistant social functioning), and cognitive (disorganized thoughts, difficulty concentrating and/or following instructions, difficulty completing tasks, memory problems).
The reason I bring this up is not to start a shipping war, I am only doing this because Effy Stonem is my paborito chracter and I think it's a shame they're treating her like this.
