Any Bleak Expectations fans? Anyone? No?
Here we see Young Pip Bin realizing he has just married his evil ex-guardian, Mr. Gently Lovely Kissy Nice-Nice Benevolent (in disguise).
And FYI, season 5 has confirmed this is canon.
Oh come, we’re married, now… Call me Gently.
No! Why… Why would you disguise yourself as a woman and make me fall in love with you?!
Allow me to explain. First of all… I like dressing as a woman. SECOND of all, I could have ruined you at any time, destroyed your business, had you hanged for treason, but that was not enough. I wanted to see you writhing in humiliation before me, I wanted to see your soul ripped open and bleeding as you realized you’d pledged your life to me, and to hear the sigh of the last of your self-respect whispering away into the vacuum of your personality.
