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*
Brenda and Laurel (Doug and Bob)
I love this. This whole thing. I adore it. Why? It’s classic soap. I haven’t seen that type of storyline in awhile and its like visiting an old friend. Even better? I have been waiting for Laurel and Brenda to have a big talk. I finally got it. That heart to heart about where each woman was coming from. Laurel apologizing (yeah its over Bob but you know….whatever). I think my theory of Laurel still being in mourning and holding onto people that was part of Ashley’s life is being proven with that little speech Laurel gave to Brenda. Brenda is lost too but she will find her way. I love the little wink between them when Brenda made the joke about fighting in public. Very cute and I enjoyed the end of that particular story.
Bob and Doug arguing was funny. I like that Laurel didn’t beat around the bush. Asking Bob if he was jealous. Talking to him about how he feels about her dad and Brenda. It’s open communication and that’s not bad to have in a relationship. So, good for them. Also, BRENDA AND DOUG FOR THE WIN! *I shall never back down from my new ship*
FIGHT ME. I DARE YOU.
Where Have You Gone, Amelia Spencer?
Yes, this story is starting to stretch out a bit but there was a lot of building in this episode. Between getting a better understanding of why Amelia is with Beth. What Beth is setting up. How the police are in her web. How Daz is going to look SUPER guilty after that phone call. I worry about Amelia. The longer she stays in that unhealthy mental state the worse things will be after all is said and done.
Lachlan and Murder Rock: AT IT AGAIN! ❤
Guys. I know I said that Brenda and Doug was a new favorite ship. I lied. This ship is my new favorite ship. LACHLAN AND HIS MURDER ROCK FOR THE WIN! He even takes it for rides! He takes it for a walk! He is annoyed for murder rock when Priya kicked it. They have so much chemistry you guys. YOU GUYS. LACHLAN AND MURDER ROCK. Yes, please!
In all seriousness, Lachlan continues to be a favorite villain of mine. Doesn’t hurt that Thomas has this weird sweetness baby face that throws someone once he gets all murder focused. It’s really Norman Bates of him and I LIKE IT. Lachlan is very interesting and I love it.
What I don’t love? Belle and Lachlan’s conversation. How he kind of emotionally…not abused but manipulated her? I guess. Over the job. Acting like she doesn’t love him because she wants to do something that will better herself and the business. That mental health comment wasn’t cool and that only came about because of Rebecca being stupid and telling that plot device story. What can I say…PLOT DEVICE GOTTA PLOT. That’s all she is good for. The comedic appeal of Rebecca flirting with people and getting to insult everyone is old. Can we move this plot device down the road now? Please. So fandom will shut up about her. Maxine is writing her next week so…there is that. Maybe she will make some type of sense now. *Maxine is awesome but not god.*
Priya is a queen. That is all.
The Little Things
- LACHLAN AND MURDER ROCK! EPIC COUPLE. BOW DOWN.
- Did Priya see Lachlan and murder rock or was she too drunk? We shall see. Those pictures of Jai going after Lachlan makes me think something was seen.
- Faith shaking her money maker cracked me up. Also, inviting Diane to drink with her in the morning. Faith is funny and that is how you write comic relief. JUST SAYING.
- Diane still blows Jack sized chunks. I feel like she still deserves what she got.
- I loved the moment when Belle was looking for apartments in London. Looks like me looking at the prices of apartments in Jersey and NYC. A nice real-life moment where I felt bonded with Belle.
- I wrote and deleted so many things about fandom in this review. Not just Robron fandom. ALL of fandom. I decided it wouldn’t be mature of me to jump in and make a snarky comment. HOWEVER, I’m not mature enough to tell people about my almost fandom rant. So…yeah.
