Honestly, I see where they're coming from. Lesbians are a "safe ship" because girl on girl is hot and there isn't really enough solid GBT in the show. The moment that wink happens, everyone began to ship it and even some members of RT, knowing full well what they were going to do to Clover, were joining in.Have I got the video for you!
By the time we were going into Episode 12, everyone was on board with Lucky Charms even though there were clear signs that Clover was not long for this world, especially when someone apparently leaked the spoiler on Reddit and that, while the names were blotted out, people were easily able to piece together that Tyrian was gonna kill someone.
We just didn't know how it was gonna go down. The fact that Clover died in the most dishonorable way possible might have stoked the flames.
