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*
Tip being there with Pryia and Jai at Gerry’s funeral was the best. Perfect even. I know people are upset and I even saw posts where people were upset that the whole village wasn’t there. Gerry only interacted with a select few. The people that he had the most meaningful moments with were present and that was enough for me. (Guys…Robert and Gerry weren’t that close. I think we might have fallen into the Fanfiction lore in this case. Gerry and Robert have a great relationship, in fanfiction. Where it will stay forever.)
Terry is insane and its obvious he is playing everyone. It takes a psycho (Lachlan) to see another psycho (Terry). So, that made perfect sense that Lachlan picked up on the weirdness first. Lachlan battling Terry was some good work on Thomas’s part. Will be kill Terry? Time will tell. I have to say though, Terry will always be Troy…forever and ever amen.
Graham, Graham, Graham *heart eyes*
I know people don’t like the idea of Megan and Graham, but I see something there. A push back. They seem to challenge each other and those are the types of couples that I adore. Good or bad. I see that spark between them and that is why I think I’m getting more and more into them. Graham is also hot. I don’t know about you guys but he kind of purrs his lines and I’m a puddle on the floor. I do love that he told Frank that he didn’t see her, and his explanation was, “I heard you but I didn’t see you.” *SNORT* I LOVE THAT. Its so funny and passive aggressive and that would have made me laugh my butt off.
So, I ship Graham and Megan. Get over it.
The Little Things
- Charity really needs to find a lane when it comes to Ryan. I don’t want to see this character get hurt. I am getting attached now. We know he is Charity and Bails son but how will Bails wiggle out of this one? That Charity consented? People like Bails wiggle out of these cases all the time. It’s heartbreaking and frustrating but very true to life.
- Ross’s acid story was about Debbie and Joe. Nothing more. Nothing less. I’m bored now.
- Aaron looked great in that suit. *totally vain thought*
- I asked my dear friend, Justine who the other people at the funeral were and she guessed clients of his dog walking business. I would have to agree with her on that. Anyone else have any thoughts on that?
- Matty. I can’t wait to see the lost Barton make his return to Emmerdale. It’s going to be good. Ross? Ross who?
One Last Thing….
I know people are still bitter and hurt from the 2017 storylines. I know that people are frustrated by a lot of things happening on the show. However, to attack the show for it on every tweet even tweets that have nothing to do with Robert or Aaron or anything…its so negative it makes me embarrassed. You can talk with your friends on tweets and yell about things in private messager. You are allowed to feel how you feel or how you still feel. I will never stop anyone from giving an opinion or feeling a certain way. You have a right to your feelings. However, attacking the shows twitter non-stop on every tweet? Stop. Just stop. It’s embarrassing and makes the show think everyone is like that in fandom (before you send me an angry tweet…the show doesn’t have time to look into the full spectrum of fandom so…yes…they are judging a lot of what they see at a glance). Some of the tweets…man…some sound deranged and see something that is just not there. I don’t see any of what some (a very small percentage of twitter fans) see. It’s not the story they are telling and maybe it’s time to decide. Either take a deep breath, forgive but not forget and come join us in 2018. That or…take a breather from twitter or talk out your feelings in a very long night of chatting with close fandom friends. It can’t be healthy to keep up the level of anger some people display every day on twitter. It can’t. I personally, this is me now, couldn’t keep up my anger anymore and I reevaluated and readjusted and I’m better for it. My time writing all those speculative pieces and theories was my coping mechanism for all the hurt that story gave me. I got out my feelings and I forgave but didn’t forget and I moved on. Looked for the good that is definitely there. Saw all the good to come and I’m happy now. Nothing is perfect, and we won’t get everything we want. Do I have to quote Rolling Stones at you guys? *wink*
I know I will get hate and I will get people that understand, and I will get people who agree. That is what makes fandom fun I guess. Everyone has opinions and we all respect those opinions as much as we can. I just think some need to rethink that level of anger. It worries me. God, that was all over the place, but I feel better now. Leaving my conscience on my blog and I’m moving on.
