Alright. I’m using the same format as yesterday. Let’s see how it goes with a half hour episode.
Whatever Happened to Sweet Baby Nell?
So. Nell is out of her mind. Not only has she gone on the run from Jai and family, but she has also now moved onto a new target. One much closer to her obsession. Moira. Someone who is in pain and coming up to the anniversary of Holly’s death. She is a psycho who is using the opportunities given to her. She knows Moira is sympathetic to her plight, so she went there. Did “drugs” to really get under Moira’s skin. Now she has Holly’s mother, someone she never had in her life.
Did I mention I’m convinced Nell is only doing this because she never had a family. She never had that connection that comes with having blood relatives around fighting for and loving you. She has had no one her whole life. She sees this as a change to get all of that and more. Didn’t work out with Jai like she wanted but now she has the next best thing. A mothers love. Which is just creepy as all hell. Moira has been through enough. Now a psycho has attached her claws into her.
It’s good storytelling and keeps the twists and turns going past the initial reveal of crazy. Most shows falter at that part, but Emmerdale stayed strong, which I like to see. The show also got me to care for Jai which is a first. I usually don’t think twice about him, but now, I want him to succeed and take this psycho out once and for all. I know he is projecting his guilt over Holly onto Nell still but after that ending…I don’t see that guilt sticking around.
“You need someone to love. Not someone to save.” – That is the line of the night. I loved that line.
Also, Moira picking up the shovel when she heard noise in the barn? That’s my girl. You might need it later against Nell. If I had to bet in a fight with Moira vs. Nell? I’d pick Moira every time.
Tracy? You Got Yourself a Storm.
I see it being set up now. David called Leyla sexy (well, she is) and Tracy took notice and quick. Good girl. I knew she would notice. David and Leyla have a history that is coming up near the one year anniversary of Tracy and Davids marriage. I can see this getting messy very quickly. Which I’m here for because while I love Tracy and David, its been a while since they roughed up the waters. Time to see what they are made of as a couple. Hell, if Robron is having everything but the kitchen sink thrown at them, David and Tracy can handle some heartbreak too. Totally bad comparison but I have Robron on the brain. As always.
Ross in love makes him do very stupid things. So, Ross must always be in love? *ha*
Finn and Emma. Hm. *Evil laugh*
I love Priya for putting Emma in her place. I see that happening again by many people (maybe her kids?)
Pete hates looking like the bad guy that is why he is all bitter and drunk. Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time Pete. At least you were sober and could make the decision to sleep with someone else. (Bitter? Me. NAH.)
I’m not looking forward to next week, but I want all the Liv drama to come and go. I hate seeing her hurt, and I hate that, once again, Robert is the evil one. Shampoo. Rinse. Repeat. Just. Let’s get this show on the road. Time for the White Family to start twisting as well.
‘It’s Just Speculation!’
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!
