Anon 1: “New SDCC xf-panel on youtube from The San Diego Comic-Con Unofficial Blog featuring the ENTIRE panel plus the AWKWARD cell phone picture session at the end! What is going on with DD anyway? He seems so very lost and kinda I don’t know, too quick to scram, I mean separate from Gillian (and the whole XF lot) immediately after it’s over.”
Anon 2: “no fear, the awkward is still there. the san diego comic-con unofficial blog via youtube has the newest, clearest & longest in duration video of the xf-panel AND the last few minutes feature DD wanting to scram and he & GA taking photos w/their cut-out and then immediately separating so she can tend to her auction duty & david to his cell phone. which is strangely I’m-feeling a-little-awkward-standing-here-w/the writers-LOOKING @ MY PHONE-insecure. Nothing seems to compute. R they just acting?”
Skip to 56:30 and judge for yourself…
…Okay, after a second careful watch, I think that the reason David immediately walks to the back of the stage is he’s expecting to take pictures against the background. You see him make eye contact with the photographer, who gestures that he should go back there. Then Gillian talks to them and asks to take the picture over by the cut-out. THEN, after the pictures, he gets out his phone and is checking it while the writers mingle. It does look a little awkward. But maybe he’s checking on something urgent? Because since when would David be awkward talking to the writers?
