“Pete” Just Because…

So much for maintaining balance in the appreciation of Richard Armitage. The man is loaded with more talent than totty.. but damn! I couldn’t let this week’s 7.5 rewatch pass without dedicating a post to “Pete”, aka Lucas North, suited up in all that splendor. So much for my lefty leaning ways, too. Me? Dazzled by a bloke in corporate attire? Yikes! Did I just “switch sides”? That’s the power of RArmitage for you. There is something about Richard. File this one under PHWOAR!


  • ‘Just because’ ‘pic nr.11′ (love how Pete looks at Jenny) = *swoon* *swoon* *swoon*

    OML (trying to get up from the floor)

  • I’m looking forward to watching the “Pete” episode! *drool* :)

    • I envy you watching S7 for the first time!

  • From scrawny Lucas in shabby “tracky dacks” to superconfident Pete in a few short weeks, what a transformation! I like to think that Pete is actually Lucas as he was before his imprisonment, burnished and glowing with confidence, at the top of his game!

  • Ohmygosh! Ep 5 is my favorite, and definitely a PHWOAR! Oh, baby, Pete is hot!!

  • suited Pete looks classy but I prefer jeans/tight long-sleeved blue t-shirt Lucas …

    • I’m with you, for the most part. The occasional suit is welcome though :)

  • It’s all about the blue and red. My favorite is Lucas on the phone; notice his elegant fingers…

  • It’s that adoring, almost proprietary glance over at “Jenny” while they are meeting Meynell that always gets me. I want someone to look at me like that, and if I have to except that he’s a corporate banker, oh well.

    • That’s the word! It’s like he’s thinking: “She’s gorgeous and intelligent and she’s mine!”

      OML :)

    • All women really want from a partner, when it comes down to it, is to be desired (in a genuine, respectful way, of course). This cap strikes that cord. I think the corporate banker thang might be a deal breaker for me though! (I’m a bit ‘Margaret’ in my ways ;) )

      • Given your sympathies you might never meet a corporate banker to try it out. :)

        • A corporate banker and a punk rock chick, that would be an interesting experiment!

          • I thought after I hit submit on that comment that Margaret Hale never thought she’d marry a cotton manufacturer, either. :)

            • Precisely! The second time I watched N&S I identified with Margret much more strongly than I did the first time for that reason. A nice little “take away” for my own life. Love works in mysterious ways, sometimes shunning its nose to our personal value system and challenging us to follow the heart and not the head.

  • Ahh “Pete” how I lust thee – let me count the ways:
    the pinstripes
    the tie
    the eyes
    the look
    the confidence
    the eyes
    the hair
    the eyes
    the cute way the champagne glass bumps your nose
    the flowers you chose
    the eyes…

    • @tyme4t: Well done, Pete/Lucas deserves the poetry. I see that the eyes are the feature focused on most!

      A second verse could be dedicated to the lips and the actions they’re engaged in!

  • Ros: ” You pitching up as my boyfriend is not going to help.” :D

  • I do prefer Lucas jeans and shirts. But that suit was amazing. Glossed-up Ros and Lucas were straight out of the celeb mags.

  • I love ep. 5! (sigh!) Romance (or even the hint of it is what I live for!)
    Love your poem tyme4t! agree 100%

  • OK honesty tyme….I actually wrote my post as a list about the things that make me *squee* about “Pete” and apparently it reads like a poem…and the more I re-read it – It truly is a poem!

    Just call me the accidental poet ;) (and I didn’t even have to mention the boiler suit – wink wink)

  • The suit does it for me everytime. I like him in jeans but that suit …….
