Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – May 18, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Aftermath

Just as expected.  Everyone is sad. Doug blames himself. Diane blames herself. Lachlan…does in his own way except he is to blame.  I’m seeing cops on the show that aren’t completely off the mark? Like, they brought in Lachlan and did question him.  Didn’t waste questions either.  I liked how the camera was circling Lachlan but with Doug’s interview the camera was a typical still shot.  I think that is because Lachlan is being closed in on and he must fight his way out.  We might be seeing that camera work again for him.

I won’t lie.  When Diane said she felt guilty because she thought she heard someone but walked away? I had a flashback to when she let Finn out but if she didn’t…he might have been safer. Hmmm….

Also, Belle is pregnant, or she thinks she is. I mean….I WON’T SAY IT. I WON’T. KEEPING MY MOUTH SHUT.

Doug and his sad face made me hurt.  There was a time I hated Doug. Now…DOUG GETS A BUBBLE WRAP BLANKET OF HIS OWN!

Two kisses. One Wild Night. Very happy Amanda.

TWO KISSES? Both were adorable? Also, they had a wild night.  *WINK WINK NUDGE NUDGE* It was nice to see them not only be connecting through their words but their eyes said a lot today.  Tumblr has been making the parallels making my dash a very happy place.

I made a topic just to say that about Robron. *LAUGHS*

Ross and Pete

I won’t lie….I zoned out during his parts. I know its setting up a wild week next week (maybe?) but I was like…I know…I KNOW ROSS.

The Little Things  

  • Robert and Aarons smirks at each other *AWWWWW* They totally had loud crazy sex during their time away because they didn’t have to be quiet because of the kids.
  • “I’ll kill him!” from Aaron *OUCH*
  • Marlon mourning Gerry was unexpected but touching.
  • I shipped Gerry and Pyria at one point. *The ship of lost dreams*

Alright.  I have to write and then take a nap. Some people (us crazy Americans) have to get up early to watch a certain wedding! *wink*

Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – May 17, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

Since almost everyone and their families were on today I’m going to separate this review to make it as easy to follow as possible. I left a few things out because I just don’t care. I was going to talk about the DNA storyline for the Spencer’s but the ‘Daz’ actor turned me off that story. I’m ignoring it and Dan is Amelia’s dad. SO THERE. Just in general? I LOVED today’s episode. I laughed. I shed a few tears. I got all speculative about the future and I felt a lot of connections I haven’t felt in a long time.

Goodbye Gerry

I loved Gerry.  I remember when he burst onto the scene all sass and bravado.  Over the months we saw a sweet kid who wasn’t really given a chance.  We hoped it would grow and flourish.  It even seemed like they were developing him.  I feel like that was the point though.  Life is guaranteed. We all can be struck down right when we are making headway.  Gerry is that sad story.  Struck down before he could reach his full potential.  I wish Gerry kept his mouth shut. Maybe, just maybe, he would have survived.  He wouldn’t have been there. Maybe. If Gerry just hung out with Gabby that day or…I wish Gerry was still with us.  That final shot of the shoe in the rubble broke my heart. Into a thousand pieces.  Rest in Peace Gerry.  Don’t worry, Lachlan will get his.

Lachlan is a very complex villain.  I call him a villain because he sexual assaulted Alicia, he shot Lawrence, he killed his mother, Chrissie and his grandfather Lawerence (second times the charm?) and that is what he is. A villain.  The complexity is his emotions.  The fact he cried after killing his mother and grandfather and then Gerry.  Is he crying because of his actions or is he crying because its just what he has to do to keep his secrets? It was an accident that Gerry got hurt.  However, Lachlan made the kill.  He has emotions.  He can love.  He wants to be part of a family.  However, he doesn’t mind killing his family (that includes Gerry).  I’m working something out here and I think I need more time with how I feel about Lachlan.

Who thinks Belle thinks she is pregnant? I’d like a show of hands.

The Engagement Party from Hell

This is where I laughed my butt off.  I don’t even like Paddy and Chas but their engagement party made me smile.  I remember watching a special on Emmerdale (I want to say 40th or 45th anniversary) and the special said that the Woolpack is the main stage of the show. If something is going to explode its going to happen in the Woolpack.  That was extremely true tonight.  Everyone was coming together (the DNA story, Bob/Laurel/Brenda, Ross/Cain/Moira, and even little side stories from our favorite comedic reliefs.

I love how many characters that normally don’t interact were having a good time hanging out together.  I LOVED seeing Lydia (MY HEART MY LOVE) singing with Faith.  Sweet Caroline. A song that has been stuck in my head all week. Odd. I loved seeing the Sugden/Potts/Dingle family hanging out together.  I loved seeing Marlon and Paddy making fun of Misty.  I know a lot don’t like Rodney and Misty but I find them silly in a harmless way.  I was surprised Jessie wasn’t there to give Marlon something else to do but I sense she might have hit the cutting room floor. There was a lot going on.

That party looked like fun and I would have found a good seat for the show.

Robron House of Wayward Teens and Children

  1. Those two TOTALLY want more kids together. I’m in love. This episode had a lot of what people have been wanting for a long time. They were communicating.  They were joking around.  They are going on a night away (where are my NC-17 Fics?!?!) and they are a family.  They just lost a member of their family, but they will survive like they always do.  I love how Robron is doing.  They are strong. They are happy. They got each other.

Aaron and Doug talking was cute.  They are all family and it shows.  Liv is going to have a much stronger base to come home to than the last time.  Gerry’s death my throw her but she has a good support system.  She’s got this.  Robert and Aaron flirting was cute.

THEY ARE CUTE OK? *SMILES WHILE CRYING HAPPY TEARS*

The Little Things

  • Ross is getting closer. JUST SAYING.
  • Thank you for leaving Joe and Debbie out of the episode. We don’t need them.
  • God bless the actors who sang Karaoke on screen. I love you and I like you.
  • Sam and Lydia are love.
  • Rhona and Pete finding their spot to watch the show was me with less beer.
  • Chas looked much better. I loved how she kept snapping the cards away from everyone. I don’t know why but it cracked me up. Especially when she asked Doug if it had money.  How Dingle of her.

Robert, Paddy, Marlon, Pete and Rhona’s faces when Brenda/Bob/Laurel came into the party. I’m still laughing

Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – May 16, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Cracks are Getting Worse

This episode was one big set up for Thursday.  I think it was a solid episode full of hints of what might be coming tomorrow in the double header.  Lachlan and Gerry have a very interesting chemistry.  I’m still hoping for a twist in the story, but I guess Gerry’s time is almost up.  Lachlan is going to protect everything he has now.  The minute he called Gerry family I was like….he is a dead man.  Look at how he treats his family Gerry! You are dead.

Thomas still blows me away as Lachlan.  He has this quiet intensity that just draws you in.  His quiet voice as he is threatening or lying just draws me in.

I enjoy seeing Doug and Gerry spend time together.  I love the metaphor of The Grange representing Gerry and Lachlan. It won’t be long before everything falls.

Just saying…even Daz has a story. *WHISPERS PLOT DEVICE UNWHISPERS*

Disco Ball Madness

Robert smiling a bit at the disco ball made me think of some good dirty fanfiction ideas.  I like how our boys showed up to remind her that they ware still around.  They are still worried about Liv.  They are still strong.  Seb showed up too! Lily looked a bit out of sorts today but still the cutest baby I’ve seen in a long time.

Poor Chas and Paddy. While I don’t like them together I like them separately (on good days) and their mishaps trying to plan this wedding and engagement party keep cracking me up.  The butt cake…that was a good butt cake. Paddy should have checked that butt before leaving the store.  While funny right now I think that bad luck will end up costing them something as a couple.

You Are Not THE FATHER

I won’t lie. I was giving this story a chance but after seeing how the ‘Daz’ actor treats fans on social media? NOPE. I’m going to either ignore this story or mock it.  Who looks for tweets that they aren’t tagged in and then comment? LIKE…aren’t you busy? Why drag fans like that?

AHEM. Anyway…I enjoyed seeing Dan punch Daz.  Amelia is awesome.  Kerry speaks the truth. Bernice needs her money back from that class.

The Little Things

“How to Get Away with Murder” – LACHLAN…now is not the time for a marathon! Who googles that? Also, I loved the webpage that was open before that search. I can’t remember the name, but I remember it making me laugh.

GERRY. BUDDY. Stop making ‘secrets safe with me’ jokes. STOP IT. YOU ARE ASKING FOR IT NOW. STOOOPPP. SAVE YOURSELF. Tell Robert or Aaron. TELL DOUG. Tell someone.

I see the White family tradition of blaming Robert continues. *Sigh* This is why I don’t like them.  It’s never their fault. It’s always Roberts. Robert has grown and taken responsibility for his actions. Time for the remaining White family to take responsibility for once in their lives.

Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – May 15, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Results are IN!

I was spoiled by Inside Soap (Which is odd but here we are) so I was looking at how they were going to present this new information about Amelia being Daz’s kid.  It was pretty traditional. I was hoping for a subversion on that front (like they did with the wedding stuff) but this was strictly classic soap.

I did notice that they gave Daz and Dan even more backstory to work with.  Their parents and what happened in the past.  Who ran. Who stayed. They are trying to shed some light on the Spencer family tree and their past.  I don’t hate that idea at all. As much as I love them, I think the show is way too focused on the Dingles.  Time to bring some other families to the front line.  Even the Spencer’s deserve their time in the sun.

The Gerry Rounds aka Countdown to the End

Gerry is doing the rounds.  He is gathering information.  That crack is getting plaster but that didn’t work.  Much like the last couple of months.  Lachlan has been putting plaster on the crack but its about to break open in the form of Gerry Roberts.  He is collecting information.   He is hanging out with the first guy to give him a chance.  We are getting setup for Thursday and my heart hurts. HURTS. I was full blown Doug will die but I’m feeling bad about that too.  Doug isn’t annoying me for once. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?!?! Can the Whites just frack off and we keep Gerry and Doug.

Seriously though. Plot device no matter what, huh? *wink*

Ring a Ding Ding Coira  

Awwwwww! Those scenes were great. I also have more proof that Robron and Coira are very much linked and fully certified supercouples.  Forever known and beloved by the shows viewers for decades to come.  Anyway, back to Coira.  The dinner and the rings moment were great.  We haven’t seen much of them since their getting back together episode so seeing this was great.  A nice treat for the hardcore Coira fans.

Let me say this. Isaac is huge! In a good way of course.  I think they changed out the babies again.  This Isaac looked different.  Still, a cutie.  Looks like he could stop Seb by sitting on him but a cutie. Even better? He made Eric change his dirty diaper. *YOU GO ISAAC*

Bob, Laurel, and Brenda (WOAH THEY ARE MOVING FAST)

I feel like they are taking this very fast.  Already moving in together? Brenda getting a lawyer makes perfect sense. They were together for a very long time.  There are things to figure out that a lawyer could help with.

I noticed that Bob and Laurel are trying to hide out a bit.  Away from the real world.  Hiding away from what they have done.  In their own world. It will crash down once again, and I think it won’t be so easy to hide out in the pirate ship anymore.

The Young and the Vetless

That moment where Paddy and Rhona were standing next to each other and Paddy mentions it will end in tears…his. I WENT INTO THEORY MODE. I danced around in my seat. I did a shimmy that would make all the theory fans come to my yard.  I still think Paddy and Chas aren’t going to make it past this year. Maybe a few months’ time.   I see Paddy turning to Rhona when something bad happens (Chas loses the baby? Maybe?) and getting her pregnant by accident. I don’t know why but Chas and Paddy and how things are being presented with such a dark cloud? They won’t be having a happy tale.  They are heading for choppy water.

Pearl is adorable. Long live Pearl.

Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – May 14, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Laurel/Bob/Brenda Saga Continues

Laurel is getting pounded and not by Bob.  Sure, she decided she wants Bob and Bob wants her but now comes the fall out.  The kids are upset.  The village is talking.  Brenda is leaving up signs on the café that made me cackle like Faith.  I think this will get worse but in the best kind of way.  THE SOAP WAY. *EVIL LAUGHTER*

I loved how entertained Faith is by Brenda and how she is trying to help her in her own Faith way.  I mean, she wasn’t wrong.  Divorce, no matter how agreeable the split, is ugly.  Lots must be brought up and its not a great time.  One could argue that everyone is getting their just deserts. Like any good soap, do something wrong, you will pay for it.

The Crack of Doom

I’m sorry but I LOVED Gerry’s sign. It was adorable.  I’d love to see that sign. I know my dad would buy that sign for our mini tiki bar set up outside.  Gerry is a treasure and I WANT HIM TO LIVE!

Ahem.

There was a lot of foreshadowing with the Lachlan, Gerry, Doug, Diane, and Belle scenes. Everyone is all merry about the possible new business and kicking butt and taking names. Except, Diane notices the cracks. There are cracks with Lachlan and Belle and Gerry. That’s metaphorical. The literal? Gerry is going to die in that old shack, isn’t he? Doug could die too. Diane could almost die. Hmmmmm.  They set up a lot of possibilities at that moment.  Depends on how it plays out on Thursday.

Pearl vs The App

Rhona was adorable today.  Seriously. I have a girl-crush. Anyway, I love how Pearl just hates that app with a passion.

“What’s an app?” – Pearl *SNORT*

This is the minority but the more they push Vanity the less I like them.  The more they make them cutesy and sweet and overbearing it makes everything they do less special.  I don’t think Vanity has a great foundation that will get them through the hard times.  That might be their downfall in the end.

Coira Gets Some Airtime

I assume its Coira’s anniversary.  All I see are Robron fans acting like they aren’t getting enough time on screen or together but Coira….Coira really has been screwed over and their fans haven’t been raising that much of a fuss about it. God bless them. Those two are very cute. I love how Cain needs help to plan a surprise including his mother.  That is a big step for Cain.  Can’t wait to see what Cain has up his sleeve.

The Letter of Truth

A magazine ruined the surprise for me *STUPID SOAP…WHATEVER* but the letter gymnastics and everything coming together was well done.  Between Kerry and Daz talking in ‘code’ in front of Bernice to Bernice demanding that she know.  Standing up for herself (LOOK THAT THEME IS BACK) and everything coming out with one breath.  I know this story isn’t liked but it has had an even beat going for it.  Daz has a storyline people. I’M JUST SAYING. (SOME OUT THERE ARE GETTING IT. *wink*)

Pub for you. Pub for Me.

Ok. Chas is getting worse.  They are purposely putting undereye bags on Lucy now.  She is still looking sick.  I have theories man. So many theories about Chas and that baby.  I don’t think its going to survive. They are making sure we know the baby is there. Chas isn’t handling it well.  It has been a rough time.

Faith working behind the bar makes me smile. Don’t ask me why.

I agree with Diane.  The pub needs some healthy competition. Also, it’s very limited competition since they have one type of ale while the pub has many types of beer, wine, hard liquor and food. Play to your strengths Chas. You got a good thing going. They just have a microbrewery that people will get bored with over time.  Also, LACHLAN IS GOING TO KILL SOMEONE THERE. Ahem…anyway. Oh wait, a many people have died at the pub. OH WELL.

Wild Thoughts on Coronation Streets Big Week – Aidan Connor and David Platt

So, I got to watch this week’s Coronation Street. I have a lot of feelings (as all do).  I’ll start with the good and then the bad. This is a free thought piece so if there are some things that are wrong it will be corrected down the line.  Right now I need to get this out so I can work on my story.

The Good

Aidan killing himself was handled well.  The show could have easily fallen into the overwrought and maudlin territory, but it didn’t get there at all.  It was sad in the right ways.  I know that sounds horrible, but Aidan’s goodbyes were hard to watch, and you knew what was coming.  What I was surprised by was how much I enjoyed the Eva and Aidan scene.  Then I was reminded of a time when I enjoyed that couple.  When I looked forward to seeing them.  It was nice to see them back there one last time.  Heartbreaking really.

Speaking of heartbreaking let’s talk about Johnny. He was the only character that got me crying.  His muffled screams and his face. Just….it was haunting.  He refused to leave his son’s body.  He was broken.  Anytime I saw him I just burst out crying which I’m not a crier. It takes a for me to cry at a television show.  Carla was great too.  She had to keep it together for everyone’s sake.  She was glue.  She wanted to fall apart but she knew she had to keep her family on track.  Keep them from falling completely apart.  I loved the phone call with Michelle though.  For a few seconds, she let the mask fall.  She allowed herself to feel because Michelle is a safe place.  Also, even though they are fighting, they didn’t let it get in their way.  It was a moment I’ve experienced myself with my best friend.  It’s a good reminder that life can change in an instant and those fights seem petty. Time to let go and move forward.

The show didn’t romanticize suicide.  Which is important.  It was dark. It was sad. It felt wrong.  The show showed the aftermath.  It showed what it could do to families, friends and a community at large.  There was no flowery goodbye note. It was short. It was scary. It’s good to show that what Aidan did was incredibly sad, and its effects go beyond the actual act.

Speaking of unspeakable acts, David’s story came to ahead which is what I have been waiting for.  David so shook up by Aiden finally told Shana what has been going on. FINALLY. As hard and scary of a moment it was, it felt uplifting.  It was like a weight was lifted off David’s and the audience’s shoulders. Someone else knows and can help him.  Keep him safe and stable. Love him.  It was a good moment.

The Bad

I know this is very sensitive and really affected a lot of people. Brought up some bad memories for some. I’m going to be very harsh in this section so if you are sensitive about the week please stop reading here. I don’t want to purposely upset people.  Ok? Good. Let’s continue on with the bad.

It was a lot to cover in one week.  A LOT. I feel like David’s story, which has been ongoing, was swallowed up by the Aiden goodbye drama.  I feel like David deserved his own moment not sandwiched in between mourners and baby drama.  I understand that Aiden’s sudden departure from this earth was used as the catalyst for David to come clean and get some support but I don’t know. David deserved his own moment and his own episode.  This week belonged to Aiden and Aiden alone.

This is something I tweeted about a while ago and now I’m going to explain what I mean.  Just because a show has an amazing week doesn’t erase the rest of the year and the crap the show has done.  I feel like Kate Oates is good at the BIG DRAMA EPISODE/WEEK.  She did amazing with the Woolpack Standoff.  However, much like what Corrie went through, the build-up was crap.  It was rushed and feels like it was done because the British Soap Awards is about to start, and they wanted to finally beat Emmerdale.  The rest of the past year has been mixed, stupid or just unbelievable.  Phelan, Gemma being beaten while the guy gets away with cheating, Anna being jailed for doing nothing wrong and writing a crappy same-sex couple…there is a lot more, but you get it.  Just because the show had one hell of a week doesn’t mean its amazing or better than another show.  I keep seeing how Kate Oates is amazing and has made Corrie better than anyone else. Give me a break. She just repeated what she did on Emmerdale only it went worse.

Same goes for Emmerdale by the way.  Just because you aren’t happy about a certain storyline doesn’t mean the show is complete crap.  Yes, the Robron story last year was rough but in hindsight it makes sense and just made them stronger.  I hated it, but it didn’t pepper any other part of the show for me.  I know that there will be moments I hate about a show, but I also know it will work itself out or I can focus on another part of the show.  Just because a storyline sucks doesn’t mean the show sucks. I see so many acting like IM will kill Corrie. No, he won’t.  He will fix Kate Oates mistakes once again.  Here is hoping he will fix Kana since man…they suck right now.

I was harsh above but that is how I feel. You do not have to agree in any way. I’m just speaking my truth.

Speaking of Kana, Kates reaction (which I know it’s a common reaction) was annoying.  Took me out of the moment. Same with Maria.  Eva had the right to be truly upset. They were to be married. They have a child.  Maria was his side piece that I rolled my eyes at when she was sitting outside curled up.  I know that sounds incredibly harsh but…ugh. Go away, Maria.

So, it was a great week but it doesn’t erase all the stupid the show has been going through.  I feel I might be biased since I’m not a fan of Kate Oates style so that might be why I’m reading more into this.  I do know that I will miss Aiden even though he annoyed the hell out of me, I will miss him.  I’m glad David finally shared his pain with someone who loves him and will have his back.

So, what did you think? Tell me below and I will see you all around soon.

Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – May 10-11, 2018 (PLUS TWO BONUS THEORIES!)

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Wedding (Laurel/Bob/Brenda) and the Aftermath

I was pleasantly surprised at the subversion the show did with the Bob and Brenda wedding. I, for weeks now, have been talking about the possibility of a crazy wedding where Laurel and Doug or Arthur will go off during the wedding.  However, that isn’t what happened at all.  IN fact, it was boring. They mention the other wedding that had Molly and Gennie and helicopters. I guess to show how much has changed for Bob and Brenda in the years that followed.  I found that interesting.

I loved how it looked like Laurel was going to stop the wedding, but she went to speak her mind to Ashley which I loved.  Her feelings were intense and instead of ruining the wedding she decided to talk out her feeling with someone she misses terribly and still loves.

The drama actually happened after the wedding.  Brenda picking up that Bob isn’t happy in any of the pictures.  Everything during the after party felt labored and weird. I’m going to let you in on something I have been thinking about.  This year seems to be the year that women pick what is best for them.  GO against the societal norm.  Brenda is part of that.  She quickly saw that she wasn’t in a good position and she had to make the decision to end it.  It hurts, and everything sucks but in the end its for her well-being. If anything, Laurel is in trouble.  She is going to get hurt down the line with Bob. I can feel it. More on that below in the bonus theory section.

Laurel and Bob. I mean…it’s a thing. I don’t hate it but I don’t love it. Its just…there. I wonder where they will go next.  I have to say, the kids are the ones who have been hurt the most. Arthur is a mess. Cathy and Heath are so confused. I wanted to hug them and tell them it will be ok.  Nothing that went down was their fault.  You can already tell, they are going to start blaming themselves and sticking to Brenda.

Charity Dingle

I love all the beats this story is taking.  We got to the ‘people don’t believe’ part of the story.  The fact its her son has to sting even more.  I do love that Moira had her back (we have to stick together) and Cain was shocked that she never told him.  Charity has a strong family that can get her through this.  I kind of hoped for more Chas and Charity talking things out since I think Chas had a hard life too but I’m good with Chas being on Charity’s side. Having her back.  Noah not believing and calling her names is an ingrained reaction.  Reminds me of what I think when I hear about a #MeToo moment. My thoughts wonder if the woman is lying and then I’m like…WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Why would I think that? Which is just something I picked up from society.  How we treat people who have the bravery to step forward and fight.  Charity is slightly weak right now but this woman is a fighter.  She has a family that backs her and loves her.  She has Vanessa who brings along Tracy.  Charity has good on her side.  She just has to stay strong.

The Doug and Gerry Show

OH….OOOOOHHHHH. THIS JUST HELPED MY THEORY. Doug and Gerry are great together too.  It made me sad to hear that Gerry considers Lachlan a friend even though, through his own admission, Lachlan isn’t good or good to him. Broke my heart. Gerry is…adorable and I can’t say more since I’m adding a bonus theory down below about Gerry and Doug.

TOO MUCH BUTTMUCH TATE

SIGH. DOUBLE SIGH.  Here is the thing.  Joe Buttmuch Tate hasn’t earned anything that is happening with him right now.  Almost dying doesn’t excuse anything or make him be better.  The fact he was backing Charity with Noah…wasn’t in character.  At all.  It was eye rolling mind numbingly stupid.  I don’t like it. I refuse to acknowledge it. The Noah, Joe and Debbie thing going on is…odd. Joe and Debbie share a sibling. Again, how Dingle of them.

The Bartons and Holly 2.0

Some think this girl finding Ross is more Nell than Holly, but I see Holly which screws with my head a bit.  Its Holly without the strong family.  What could have happened to her if Moira wasn’t her mom.  Anyway, I guess she and Ross could be a thing down the line? Maybe. Pete being worried makes perfect sense to me.  I’d be worried too. Ross is so fragile right now anyone can take advantage of him. I get it. I get his worry.  The Barton Brothers are adorable. I will admit that.

The Little Things

  • I think Dan is Amelia’s father.
  • I love how Jimmy was pumping the balloon as he watched Misty and Rodney “connect”
  • I’m starting to like Misty and Rodney. *DUCKS*
  • Nicola lied to the doctor to get him there. Honey, so would I! *He is a cutie*
  • Bernice is selfish and it’s very much in character. I love it.

BONUS THEORY TIME!

Bonus Theory #1: Doug Dies Not Gerry

This is wishful thinking on my part, but I think Doug dies. Why? They keep advertising about Gerry and Lachlan and will he make it out alive? TOO EASY.  I think they will go for the twist on this one.  Maybe Doug hears his “son” and tries to save him.  Maybe he gets killed in the process of doing that.  That would shock the village more than Gerry dying.  Doug has been around longer and is connected to Diane who is a Sugden which is big deal especially with the show’s history.  Doug passing away would affect Diane, Victoria, Robert, Aaron, Laurel and all the grandkids.  Gerry, I love Gerry but it would effect Lachlan, Belle and Liv. Aaron and Robert would be there too but barely.  I like Doug these days too but him hanging out with Laurel, Gerry and his grandkids? Its like a goodbye.

BONUS THEORY #2: Sisters are Doing it For Themselves

I’m going to elaborate on what I was saying about Brenda above.  I think we are seeing a bunch of female characters deciding what is right for them instead of worrying about the man.  For instance, Rhona.  Rhona could have easily fallen back in with Paddy but wanted a clean break and a fresh start.  That led her to Pete who is single and ready to mingle giving her some uncomplicated loving for a while. Something she needed after the Pierce drama.  Brenda decided to pick herself over having a relationship with Bob. Charity finding her voice and speaking out because if she doesn’t someone else might get hurt and she knows those old scars and emotions need to be exercised if she is going to be a better human being (By the way, Charity’s kid is SO ALIVE).  Vanessa deciding not to label herself by what society wants and just going for it.  Trying to be open and free so she isn’t stuck in a place that might be mentally killing her.  These women are deciding what is best for them and have the backing to do so.  I love that about Emmerdale and how they try to show growth whenever they can. Sure, they will backslide but for now….growth.

Emmerdale Live and Organized Tracy

Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – May 9, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

Charity Dingle

Again. Emma is beyond amazing. I was with her the whole episode.  I was in her corner. I had her back.  I love how the show is showing us the steps of how an investigation starts and the emotions the victim must be feeling.  I can see why Charity thinks he will get away with it.  So many predators do. I almost put men but women can be sexual harassers/predators too. I understand her anxiety.  She took the first step by telling everyone but now the steps get more labored and scary.  That’s why Charity needs people that won’t let her fall back.  Let her move forward.  I think we are getting that with Harriet, Vanessa and I think soon, Tracy.  I’m shocked Chas hasn’t been brought in to have Charity’s back yet.

Speaking of Vanessa, I think she learned her lesson. It wasn’t really shown but the fact she didn’t keep telling others about what happened to Charity means she stopped stepping in and telling someone else’s secrets.  That might come in handy down the line.

Never expected the little baby boy to be dead though. I was convinced Gerry was her kid. Just to protect him. You never know in the soap though, there could be another Dingle out there waiting to come visit the village.  I personally think there are more than enough Dingles and we need more Sugdens or even Tates.  I think we have our fill of Dingles for now.

The Stag/Bachelorette Party

The two parties are interesting.  Let’s start with Bobs.  Bob’s party with the onesies was great.  I love how Faith joins in with the guys and mocks them at every turn.  Thank you show for answering my question. Faith and Eric are still together.  I also love how they let ‘Bob’ get some dramatic scenes as he talked to Ashley through the photo. He is a good actor and its nice to see him get out of the comedy rut once in a while.

Brenda’s party. Laurel walking in and getting the devil ears was funny.  I do love how Doug is very much there for Laurel and trying to guide her away from Bob and all the drama. It won’t work but its very nice.  I love how annoyed Lydia looks at every turn.  She wanted to control the party and she kind of gets her wish later on at the pub. Kind of. Misty is off getting mad at Rodney and Lydia takes over. I hope to see her party when she marries Sam. LET ME HAVE IT SHOW.

“Killer Lachlan” Tour Continues

Gerry spent the past couple of months hanging with Liv and Gabby.  Now that its time for the Lachlan story to put another event on the timeline, Gerry is back with Belle and Lachlan. Lachlan also called Gerry a brother. Which, we all know how Lachlan treats family.  Gerry is in trouble. SO MUCH TROUBLE.

Gerry being brought into the “Whingle” business makes it even easier to be around the brewery and anything else that could hurt Gerry. EEK.

I still think Whingle sounds like an STD.  Oh well.

Joe/Debbie/Noah

Who would ever fight over Joe “ButtMunch” Tate?

Emmerdale Live and Organized Tracy

Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – May 8, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Tracy Support Crew

I love how strong Tracy is being.  In my head, I was picturing some internet comments people would have written, and my heart hurts.  She shouldn’t be ashamed of her past.  She did what she had to do to survive. She is a stronger woman for it too. I adore Tracy, and this storyline just strengthened the adore in me.

Also, I think David and Tracy will get close again. Bond. Decide to make a go of it and then…BAM…pregnant Leyla comes back to town.  Explodes all over again…however…this time…does it really explode Tracy and David or are they going to handle this better now? Time will tell my friends. Time will tell.

Charity Dingle “All Women Matter”

Charity gets her own section today. Emma is beyond amazing.  The control and explosion during that last scene was genius on her part.  She is in control of the facts.  She can state them but reliving those feelings is what brings her emotion in.  The deeper she gets into that time in her life the more she loses control.  Then anger comes up.

I know some are looking down at the story (too much like Aaron’s and Tracy’s…. it’s not).  It’s very timely.  It reminds me of what is happening in America.  How these men who are beloved and have long respected careers that have the publics trust being exposed as terrible human beings…it reminds me of Bails and Charity.  He is respected. People trust him.  The public automatically thinks he will protect them. Tell them the truth.  HE HAS THE PUBLICS TRUST. When he is a monster in private.  He goes after the people who do what he does.  He thinks he is above the law. He is above women. He hurt Charity and god knows how many scared, naive and homeless girls.  It’s a version of the #MeToo movement coming to Emmerdale.  Smart on their part.

Again…EMMMAAAA….BSA….VOTE FOR HER! TONIGHT AND TOMORROW! She is already kicking butt and taking names. She is great.

The Pub Crew

I have a question. Chas is pregnant and has that really bad morning sickness that Princess Kate had (I know that’s not her title, but I’m American. She is Princess Kate just like we are about to get a Princess Megan).  However, is it just me or is she getting thinner? Like, when she went for her scan, she looked bigger than she does now.  Is that a plot point I’m catching or is Lucy just randomly losing all the baby weight from before? Just wondering.

Here is what bugs me about Joe.  He hasn’t earned anything. Seriously.  He hasn’t earned anything or really lost anything or learned anything.  That is why I’m going to stop saying he is like Robert because he isn’t like Robert.  Even back in the day Robert lost a lot and learned a lot.  I wonder if Joe will ever learn.  Also, I didn’t realize this, but Joe and Debbie share a brother.  I mean….how Dingle of them.

The Killer Lachlan Tour

I really don’t want Gerry to die!

*Ahem* I noticed something sad.  Gerry walks hunched over. Like he is carrying the world on his shoulders.  He doesn’t even straighten up when talking to Lachlan.  He does for Belle but Lachlan…he tries to make himself small, and that breaks my heart.  I do like that Gerry is hinting at Belle that Lachlan isn’t what he seems. They are laying down the groundwork now.

Pryia being a ‘boss bitch’ makes me happy. That’s my girl. Sell that alcohol! Make Eric pay. Oh…question.  Are Faith and Eric still a thing?

The Café Crew

I know people aren’t into the Bob, Laurel and Brenda story.  Some think it’s the worst thing EVER. However, I love me a crazy wedding, and I sense that is happening this Thursday.  I love crazy weddings even if I’m not crazy about the circumstances that got them there.  I personally think Laurel is mourning and that is why she is attached to one of Ashley’s closest friends. I think Bob has a trigger in him that must screw up good things, and he has a good thing with Brenda.  It might be time for Bob to finally learn his lesson once and for all.

Lydia. My Queen. My Heart.  She doesn’t like Misty and wants to control the show. I adore her. I need to see Sam and Lydia’s wedding. It would be AMAZING. BEST DAY EVER FOR ME. I will tell everyone in my office about it. I will put up hearts in my cubical. Ok…I won’t do that, but I’ll do it on the inside! Anyway…*SNORT*

My theory about Misty that I wouldn’t write here before seems to be taking shape.  I think I have some more proof and that is interesting to me.  Let’s see where that goes. It’s a personal theory that I’m waiting to see bloom.

Emmerdale Live and Organized Tracy

Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – May 7, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Wishing Well Crew

I jumped around so much on Friday that I missed a lot of story.  Lisa is back for Belle which is nice.  Belle needed someone to steady her.  I was convinced Aaron being on this week would be for Belle. It was for Gerry (more on that down in The Mill section).

I was surprised to see Lachlan not blame Robert for something.  Considering, I still stand in ‘Camp Robert Didn’t Cause the Crash So Back Off” so to hear Lachlan feeling remorse and taking responsibility (in his own way) is interesting. Again, Emmerdale. Giving their creepy annoying characters layers! HOW DARE THEM! *WINK*

Oh. Lisa is doing something else.  She is doing some good for herself and others. I’m good with that.  Zak and Lisa are such an old school couple you can’t help but keep with them.  SO…SOOOO…is Lisa gone for good or on vacation? In the USA when a long term actor gets to a certain point, they only show up at certain times. For instance, Luke from General Hospital only shows up in the Spring etc etc etc.

Home Farm Crew

I actually sat through the Joe and Debbie scenes. They were fluffy. La de da. I adore Graham and how he screwed with both of them.  Also, I bet he is feeling a bit down since the whole Megan thing.

WOULD SOMEONE LOVE GRAHAM?!?! PLEASE?!?!

Who is running the business? Graham? Jimmy? One of his many workers? These are things I think about when I don’t care about a couple.

The Mill

So, the point of Gerry looking for the voicemail is to set up Lachlan vs Gerry but also let Aaron know that Gerry was looking for a voicemail.  Aaron knowing about a voicemail raises my interests a bit.  That leads to Robert which leads back to Lachlan. My friends…we may have a story finally coming together.  Yeah, Aaron thinks it is a voicemail from a girl but I bet if Gerry dies (CRIES IN THE CORNER) then Aaron is going to be thinking about that voicemail.

By the way, that voicemail is horrifying. We saw the crash so we saw all of that but hearing it that way with Gerry’s reactions was haunting. I loved that. I loved how grainy it felt and you can tell that Gerry is scared. OH GERRY! (CRIES IN ANOTHER CORNER)

Can we talk about the Bingo joke? That was a Robert joke. He is rubbing off on Aaron in more ways than one. *WINK* *I only bring class to this fandom my friends*

Oh, Aaron never finished putting away the groceries and the mini ‘Type A’ personality in me was annoyed by that. Finish your task AARON! God. *wink*

The winking has gotten out of control. I’m sorry.

The Official Charity Stalking Ring Crew

Ok, so, Charity’s Stalking Ring is over. Bails figured it out.  I am kind of excited to see the special Charity episode and also seeing Charity reach out to others. Open up.  It takes a village and Charity is going to need a village to help her on her path to healing. If she ever gets on that path or stays on it for good.
