Welcome to the pre-show. I put this up on my Tumblr and I’m repeating it here too. Please take some comfort in what I have to say. It will be ok.
You know what. I had a lot to do today. I wanted to do laundry, take a shower, work on fixing a coding issue and maybe look for some old Halloween blog posts I wrote last year to share. However, someone else had other plans and I’m very weak. SO WEAK.
These very detailed (I think slightly bent in one direction) spoilers aren’t that bad. In fact…I’m excited. Why excited?
There are a few factors to consider.
- How something is written down and how they are portrayed on screen are two different animals. How something sounds on paper can be played very differently on screen.
- Consider the source. Sometimes people watch an episode illegally and write down what happens. Sometimes their own opinions and feelings get in the way. So, how something sounds might just be speculation. SO, consider that.
- Ryan will BE AMAZING to watch. This is just the beginning of all the emotional backlash and breakdown. This is his moment. Let’s celebrate and feel it with him. We will be seeing more as we get closer to Christmas.
- Rebecca still doesn’t matter. *Oh god…that is sad but in a funny way. I know. I’m horrible. Deal with it.*
- The sting is taken out because we know Christmas and beyond. Robert and Aaron will find their way back and figure it out. It will be ok.
So, please. Meltdown. Scream. Get it all out. Remember, it will be ok. We are going to be treated to some madness, great acting and maybe a few clues along the way. So, let’s take a deep collective cleansing breath and take it episode by episode.
Let’s crack on!
The Pub Crew
Ah, Debbie’s birthday! How old is Debbie?
Welcome home, Aaron! Now everyone is home, and we can start the final act.
“I’ll write in it later!” – Charity *Oh god. Couldn’t sign your name to the card?*
Oh hey! That plot is back! Charity put another loan out on the pub! *DUN DUN DUUUNNN*
I think Charity should get yelled at for this. I guess Tom has to step in? Right?
Oh boy. That line. I don’t like it. “Lie back and think of the pub!”
That Aaron and Paddy’s hug was odd. *HA*
Who is Dara? Oh. He was boring. *HA*
CLOWN. NOOOOOOO! I hate Clowns. Paddy dressed as clown. NOOOOO.
Wait. Did Aaron say Chas was seeing someone? Dara? Knew something was up!
Well, Charity is going to get the job done. Oh boy. Very interesting.
They are having this conversation with Paddy dressed like clown.
WOW. I just wrote that about PADDY! Insane. I was right on characterization.
This whole party feels off to me, but I’m distracted right now.
A sweet Moira and Debbie scene. I hoped the show would discover the dynamics of Debbie and Charitys relationship some more. Its ok.
Charity’s ONS just robbed the pub. GREAT JOB CHARITY!
Well, Chas came home and jumped on that…well…I’ll keep it PG right now.
I know this is a very unpopular opinion, but I feel like Chas uses Paddy as a port in the storm. I might be wrong, but she only shows up when she is feeling off or comes back from somewhere.
Marlon has a fancy teapot by the way. The British take their tea very seriously.
I have to say that Lucy looks a lot more comfortable than when we last saw her. She must be happy to have her little ones out in the world. Also, she doesn’t have to hide behind anything.
Why does Chas want this so badly? Why does she want this a secret? This is going so fast. It’s really confusing.
“He had a 12-pack?” – HA Poor Paddy. *not really*
EVERYTHING I WANTED ROBRON TO SAY TO EACH OTHER AND THEY GAVE IT TO THEM?!?!?!
I can’t even get upset about them anymore. They are just…there.
Robert being cute. Let’s enjoy! *heart eyes*
Robert looks tired. He isn’t sleeping.
HA. Fake News mention! STOP GETTING MY AMERICA IN YOUR BRITISH! *HA*
Lachlan looks so thrilled. *HA*
Robert has his look on his face like, “Why can’t I be with the Dingles right now? I miss my extended family.”
Faith and Chas! Faiths speech to Chas was great. We are also skipping over a lot story I think. Something is off about Chas. OH…Ok…the writers, are rebooting things. Gotcha show.
Robert is off in the shadows watching these people. Very interesting
Oh god. Robert’s face. OH MY GOD. He is in hell. He isn’t even hiding it and those idiots are too stupid to see it. He wants to cry. *BUBBLE WRAP*
I’m very confused by Megan and Frank’s relationship. I know Frank just called himself a prince and terrible but that could describe all the characters. Every single one. Minus the kids.
Oh no! Eliza! Oh gosh. That looks terrifying.
This story will make me really sad.
Ah. Lachlan is getting his driving license. *EEK*
Robert listening in. He is the worst spy ever.
I see Chrissie is back to not trusting Robert. All of that last week was a waste of time.
Faith is a Coira shipper! *high five*
I like Harriet, but she isn’t meant for Cain. Cain and Moira. Always.
Tom ‘50 Shades of Grey’ Penthouse/Hotel
I feel like we can’t get to know Tom until he moves into Home Farm so…right now everything feels off and wrong.
They have him here living separate from Emmerdale and it’s getting weird now. I want to know more about him. I feel like I don’t know anything. I want to know more, and the show won’t let me.
Oh boy. He is sending Graham over! HA! I wonder if him and Charity…maybe…hmmmm…
OH MY GOD! MY THEORY MIGHT BE COMING TRUE WITH GRAHAM!
I know he is playing a role, but I thought Graham would do this someday. *LAUGHS LIKE A MANIAC*
Charity is working it but Tom has the upper hand. Finally, someone has the upper hand on Charity.
Jai and Cain. That’s an old dynamic.
OH. Cain gets the motherly figure when he is drinking, but Robert gets screwed over. GOT IT. *Forever Bitter* *Forever a Sugden Support Squad Member*
Megan is just like…”Hey Cain! So…support group!”
Faith laying down the law. Love it. Mama Faith is here.
‘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!
