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 Spencer Family
I won’t lie. I would totally have all the sparkly stuff in my house too. Kerry and I have more style similarities than I care to admit. Anyway, the important stuff. Ali is dead, and Daz shouldn’t have told her that way, but here we are. Time to concentrate on Amelia.
I love how the show is repeating what I kept seeing on social media about this storyline. Why are the Spencer’s so unlucky? Every soap family is unfortunate we are just noticing it more with The Spencer’s since they are barely on or comic relief.
I know this has nothing to do with the story, but I’m amazed at how far Kerry has come. In 2013 she was an overtanned, heavy makeup, dressing way too young mess of a human. She drank too much. Almost killed Sarah and Jack. She bounced around from person to person. Now, she is stable. She has a loving family. She has a job (two jobs) and is finding her way. It’s nice to see how far she has come as a character. She does and says things I don’t agree with, but I still like her.
That is what I was raised on. Just talking things out in church. There is no right or wrong way to be in any religion. Religion is not a weapon or something to hold over people when they do something I don’t agree with. It is a place to regroup, talk things out and use as a guidepost to be a better person. No one is better or worse. Just got to sit and listen. Take stock of the good you got and keep moving. No religion is better than any others. We just need (not all I understand atheists and their ideas) a place to land when things are at their worst or best.
Daz is drunk. SO DRUNK. I’m feeling second-hand embarrassment. I called he might be Amelia’s dad. Doesn’t change Dan’s involvement in the slightest but I kind of called it on Twitter. Not on Tumblr. When Daz tells Kerry, he might be Amelia’s dad, her face says it all. Like, ‘CRAP.’ I know some aren’t excited about this story but its something different for The Spencer’s so I’ll go with it. They usually only get comedy so let’s get some drama going to let them shine too.
Charity/Noah/Joe/Vanessa/Charity/Bails (THE WHOLE BUNCH)
Here is Charity. This man who treated her the way he did back when she was a young girl. Ruining any hopes, she would have at trusting another human without issues. Abusing privilege. Now he is offering her money that could help but is there a price on that type of hurt? In my head, there is no price other than jail time for this creep. However, for Charity, it keeps her family afloat. Against Joe. Keeps her on her feet. Justice or financial stability at the hand of the abuser? Hmmmmmm.
I won’t lie. Vanity is young Robron without the charm. *DUCKS AND COVERS FROM THE FANS* My thoughts could change, but right now I’m very lukewarm on Vanity. Again, something can change. *shrug* This could be a good look at different classes within a relationship. Vanessa was raised middle class, and Charity was lower class (regarding income, not personality mind you). Robron doesn’t really have that class issue. Regardless of what some think Robert didn’t come from money. He came from a middle class (Maybe lower middle) and rose above and fell again. Aaron was…what was Aaron? Middle class? Raised middle class? I don’t know actually, but there isn’t much difference there between them like Vanessa and Charity.
I think Noah and butt munch’s relationship is supposed to humanize butt munch, but it isn’t working right now. Not when he really screwed with my favorite little family on the show. Screw with my favorites, and you must earn your way back into my fangirl heart.
The Little Things
- Rishi has a type. That client looks like his ex-wife. I do love that Rishi got a date though. GO RISHI! DANCE IT OUT, HONEY!
- Home Farm looks amazing. Good for them for finally getting rid of the horror that what Home Farm: White Family Edition.
- Has anyone noticed that Chas isn’t allowed to wear makeup anymore? I get she is pregnant and not handling the morning sickness well, but I’ve never seen her without lipstick even when she was really sad or upset. Its been a month and no lipstick on Chas. Its stupid but just something I noticed.
- Frank and Rishi having a ‘Hitch’ moment is cracking me up.
- I thought Megan and Graham would kiss this week! BOOOO! I am really into Graham and Megan. They need a ship name. Leave some suggestions on my Twitter, Tumblr or on this blog!
