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*
There is No Hannah! Hello Matty Barton (Welcome Home)
Powerful. I like this actor. Before I dive into how I feel about all of Matty’s scenes with Moira and Cain, I want to talk about the actors. Everyone did an amazing job with all the scenes. I was revived. I stopped working on writing my review. It had my full attention. I went on the full journey with everyone.
Now. Onto the characters.
I see lots of people wanting Moira’s head. Here is the thing, she just heard the news. She is angry about Matty not coming back after Holly, Isaac, Finn and Adam leaving her. She is confused. She is being cruel because she is hurt. I feel like I know Moira. She won’t stay in that negative space (cruel…she was cruel to Matty today) for long. She will grow to accept Matty. Understand where he stands. Right now, she said a lot of things that made me cringe and feel for Matty. Moira is hurt. She is scared. She is going off the rails. She was cruel today, but it won’t stay that way. Not the Moira I know.
I like how we got to see Matty explain how he felt and what was happening to him. He is in a better place now. He was scared and confused too and now he is in a better place. A better mental place. I get it. I understand. I got his back. Will others in town have his back?
Cain’s place in this was on the fringe. Though, he didn’t seem as upset. Considering how he handled Aaron well, I think he will handle Matty well too. He is just staying quiet for Moira’s sake.
Welcome home Matty. Emmerdale is still crazy. You will love it. Can’t wait to see more of you.
Lachlan vs His History
Do you know what Priya was feeling? Murder Rock and Lachlan’s love.
In all seriousness, Priya had a reason to worry. Lachlan’s history is coming back and how something like sexual assault will never go away. I like that the show brought it back. Used it again. That was one thing I hated. How much Chrissie and Lawrence would baby Lachlan when it came to the sexual assault. Sort of like how Rebecca babied Lachlan today too. Consistency with the White family. Everyone else is wrong but them. Blame everyone but themselves. I’m shocked Lachlan and Rebecca didn’t blame Robert for the sexual assault. That was their favorite pastime back in the day.
Speaking of Rebecca (groans across the land) she passively said that Priya was drunk so why should we believe her in that one statement before she went running after Lachlan. I mean…that is something people say when being shitty. Also, Rebecca is remembering things now without her notebook. Progress. Hopefully her progress sends her off a cliff.
Sorry, usually she doesn’t bug me anymore because she really doesn’t have much now so why should I care but that comment about drinking and her date with Ross, she hit a nerve with me and I went right back to 2017 hatred. It will go away again, and I will ignore her but her moments today…it brought me back to a darker time while watching the show. I don’t want to go back there so I am letting it go, after I post this review I’ll drop it.
Priya is onto Lachlan which puts her into the line of fire. Doubt they will kill off Priya though. That would be spoiled. Also, NO KILLING OF THE SHARMA FAMILY! Protect families who aren’t connected to the Dingles. We need more of them.
The Barton’s Remember
Finn’s birthday is coming up. I remember being fine with Finn dying and then it happened, and I was a mess. I’d like the Barton brothers to spend some time together remembering Finn. Doesn’t look like its going to happen but it would have been nice. Instead Pete is hanging out with Rhona and Ross has a date with Rebecca. I mean, ok then. I know Maxine is writing the episode tomorrow, so it will be good its just…hmmmm. I wish we had more, “Finn love” going on. Life goes on though.
The Little Things
- Rhona and Pete are so stinking cute. I know they have a very short shelf life, but they are so freaking cute. I love them.
- Daz is trying to steal money now for the ‘caller’. I kind of lost interest in this part of the storyline. Maybe it’s a bit on the nose but its ok. The plot will pick up again.
- I wish Belle did something for herself. Sticking around for Lachlan is just limiting her potential. She is so smart. I know why she is staying (duh, she isn’t leaving anytime soon) but still, I hope young girls know that boys will come and go but opportunities to make yourself a better person and create a stable good life for yourself are far and few between sometimes. Then again, Lachlan has a shelf life and I think Belle will learn a few lessons the hard way very soon.
- Rebecca’s hypocrisy is killing me right now. It makes my blood boil. Again, bringing me back to 2017 lows. *shakes head* IT’S OVER. MOVE ON AMANDA.
- Liv is sending the text’s, isn’t she? She is going to get people hurt because she thinks Lachlan is up to something (she isn’t wrong, but I wonder if she gets Priya hurt and maybe even Robert down the line).
