Hi, everyone! This is a different version of ‘Emmerdale Live and Organized.’ Since I knew I would have to fly out the door after the episode was over, I didn’t even bother doing a live reaction. Instead, I will be focusing on a few main points. So, enjoy this different version! I hope it doesn’t disappoint.
Let me say this. When Emmerdale is good…IT’S GOOD. It knows how to write their characters well. It does. Like any show, it has its slow points and crappy stories and episodes. I think things will start to pick up. Well, after next week. Next week looks like a bunch of weak writers. Anyway, on with my thoughts.
Tell Me Sweet Little Lies Nell!
I have a lot to say about this because I feel like people aren’t looking at the big picture. Anyway, since her self-harming episode looked a bit fake to me, I’ve been wondering about her. She is not the black widow like people are claiming. Black widow stories are people who are in control and cold-hearted right to the bitter end. Maybe some lose it at the end, but Nell isn’t a black widow. She is crazy. She is someone without a family who saw an opportunity in the paper to get one. You can tell by the way she said she never had a grandfather or father (I was too focused on Jai to really listen in to that part). She saw Holly. Saw she could emulate her and get the family she always wanted.
Now. Is she pregnant? The show kind of glossed over that. I’m guessing…no.
Now, how does this affect other theories? I see on twitter that people are saying Rebecca must be innocent of everything. What do I say to that? Bullshit. There are different types of lying my friends. Nell is the psycho kind. Rebecca could just be the normal ‘save your ass’ kind or even the real black widow. Cold. Calculating. Right to the bitter end. We don’t know. All I know is, anything is possible and acting like a storyline is over, is just dumb. It’s a soap. It needs drama. Playing Rebecca’s story straight has no drama to it. None at all. I’m already yawning thinking about it.
Here is the thing. For the baby to be Roberts and have Robron reunite, Aaron would have to grow to love the kid. HELL. Robert would need to grow to love the child. Aaron wants the child dead and felt so guiltily about it he hurt himself. How do you come back from that? YOU DON’T. There is another twist and acting like that story is being played straight is just bad storytelling. If I see one, ‘aren’t they known for that?’ comment I will haze the hell out of you. Today proves they can do it. We just have to sit tight and wait it out.
Leyla is Too Good for Everyone
Leyla is amazing. I’m glad she made them both stay and listen to her. She made them feel her pain and how much she hurt from their betrayal. I would have been drinking out of the damn bottle. Hell, that bottle would have been over Pete’s head. I made a joke about calling my Uncle Mario, but I think Leyla needs an Uncle Mario to take care of these two.
This is only the beginning. I’m sure Leyla won’t let this go, and something is coming there. Devastation does a lot of a person.
Bob is fantastic. Brenda cracks me up. They are quite the pair.
Megan was in good spirits considering her situation.
Debbie. I’m just waiting for the new guy to show up.
Ross in love throws me off still.
Don’t care about Cain and the vicar.
Tracy and David are heading for some rocky waters. I can feel it.
As per usual: Stay off the message boards, respect each other’s opinions, breathe, reboot and eat a Snickers. If you want to talk theory or the show come on over to my twitter and Tumblr @AmandaJ718
Until next time, see you around in Emmerdale!
