Why do you think Tony took a forget-me-now after sleeping with Gob?

Even taking off my rose-colored shipper glasses (though I will swear up and down that that this is a canon-ass romantic relationship) neither of them seems particularly upset by the encounter, reacting fairly serenely at least.

Granted, Gob attempted to roofie himself, but decided it was more important to make Michael forget (Afraid of judgement? Yes, no, maeybe so?) . But Tony seems more level-headed, and isn't show to be a frequent forget-me-now subscriber himself.

Or is it part of there same-ness: That they're both so used to deleting their shame that it's second nature?

(And if any other Blunder shippers would like to assure me that this ship will sail next season, it would be appreciated! (: )

I've seen a few theories floating around about this...

1. Tony didn't actually take a roofie. He's just pretending that he forgot the night before.

2. Tony thought Gob had taken a roofie, so he took one, too, because he was upset that Gob wanted to forget.

3. Tony mistook Michael for Gob's boyfriend.

4. The most popular, I think: Somebody, most likely Sally, forced Tony to take a roofie for some reason related to Lucille 2's disappearance.

I don't think it's likely Tony habitually takes roofies in the way GOB does - his career's based on this charade of being gay and it seems like he'd be too careful to risk other people remembering things that he doesn't. I could certainly see him having them, though, to use on anyone who finds out his secret. So after Cinco, either:

* he's so upset by what happened with GOB that he uses one on himself - although he knows from Ann that GOB was trying to con him and deliberately erasing that knowledge would be pretty reckless/stupid, but let's say he was really upset and not thinking clearly. (Though he seems fine when he leaves the room, and he doesn't seem much more than just annoyed at Michael catching them together);
* he didn't really forget and is pretending for some reason;
* (the one I'm going for, because I am a big romantic shipper at heart) Sally organised Lucille 2's disappearance and when it looks like Tony might be going to blow their cover - maybe out of guilt that GOB's brother's going to jail? - she roofies him

I can't explain what I think may have happened because it's what I'm doing in my fic and I don't want to spoil it, seeing as I haven't seen anyone else say it yet... haha. But I really want to tell you and I think it's an interesting prospect :) I'm really excited to see how they handle it in the show! There are so many options!
