That’s Yvonne’s description of what’s going on in S3.
Fear not, ‘shippers! If the reporter is at all worthy of his craft, Yvonne laughs as she says “torturous”, which is about (P) love interests and the dreaded WT/WT. And since no one has ever accused Yvonne Strahovski of taking particular delight in teenage romantic antics, I suspect the laughter was genuine. It’s an another indication that we’re going to enjoy this.
“Bubbling”, btw, is not about the champagne!
