If we were in the middle of a CW sitcom or a crappy rom-com right now, this news would bring about the typical eating-ice-cream-in-sweatpants-and-dabbing-our-puffy-eyes montage set to “Everybody Hurts.” Why, you ask? Oh nothing really, just that Benedict Cumberbatch might be getting engaged soon. As in engaged to be married. To his girlfriend. Who’s not one of us. This situation is so dire, I can’t even figure out which emoji to use to best demonstrate my feelings on the matter in a text to my sister about this later. Ugh.
According to The Daily Mail (so take that with a boulder-sized grain of salt, please) Benedict was “spotted” (read: stalked by employees of The Daily Mail) flying to Edinburgh to visit the mother of his girlfriend, Sophie Hunter. Which could mean he was either a.) enjoying a visit with a lonely older lady who lives in Scotland, because WHO WOULDN’T; or b.) ruining the lives of the Cumber Collective (“bitch” is just too harsh right now, when my wounds are gaping wide open) and possibly asking the elder Ms. Hunter for her daughter’s hand in Cumberbatchrimony. Woof. The Mail‘s report is kind of misleading, though, because at first you’re meant to think he went and visited her alone but then the article mentions something about Benedict and Sophie ogling a garden of royal flowers or some shit during “their” visit. So who knows.
