    Charlotte Hale had quite a season with one helluva crazy twist ending. We CANNOT WAIT to see what Season 3 has in store for dear Tessa.

    2. And the MCU:

    Never forget: Valkyrie managed to CAPTURE and SELL the two strongest Avengers. Step aside, boys, because she reigns supreme. Also, she can hold her booze like no other.

    3. Sorry to Bother You solidified her as a fashion icon:

    Bonus: every single one of Tessa's outfits are fire.

    4. She loves goats:

    Like, a lot.

    She even follows @tessasgoats:

    If you don't follow this twitter account, you need to immediately. It's adorable and hilarious and Tessa-approved.

    5. She's a bicon:

    She’s bi. And yes, she cares very little about what men think of her. What a joy to play! https://t.co/d0LZKTHCfL

    Even before she came out as bi herself, she was making sure bi erasure wasn't happening to her characters.

    6. And her relationship with Janelle Monáe is beautiful:
