Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – May 14, 2018

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 Laurel/Bob/Brenda Saga Continues

Laurel is getting pounded and not by Bob.  Sure, she decided she wants Bob and Bob wants her but now comes the fall out.  The kids are upset.  The village is talking.  Brenda is leaving up signs on the café that made me cackle like Faith.  I think this will get worse but in the best kind of way.  THE SOAP WAY. *EVIL LAUGHTER*

I loved how entertained Faith is by Brenda and how she is trying to help her in her own Faith way.  I mean, she wasn’t wrong.  Divorce, no matter how agreeable the split, is ugly.  Lots must be brought up and its not a great time.  One could argue that everyone is getting their just deserts. Like any good soap, do something wrong, you will pay for it.

The Crack of Doom

I’m sorry but I LOVED Gerry’s sign. It was adorable.  I’d love to see that sign. I know my dad would buy that sign for our mini tiki bar set up outside.  Gerry is a treasure and I WANT HIM TO LIVE!


There was a lot of foreshadowing with the Lachlan, Gerry, Doug, Diane, and Belle scenes. Everyone is all merry about the possible new business and kicking butt and taking names. Except, Diane notices the cracks. There are cracks with Lachlan and Belle and Gerry. That’s metaphorical. The literal? Gerry is going to die in that old shack, isn’t he? Doug could die too. Diane could almost die. Hmmmmm.  They set up a lot of possibilities at that moment.  Depends on how it plays out on Thursday.

Pearl vs The App

Rhona was adorable today.  Seriously. I have a girl-crush. Anyway, I love how Pearl just hates that app with a passion.

“What’s an app?” – Pearl *SNORT*

This is the minority but the more they push Vanity the less I like them.  The more they make them cutesy and sweet and overbearing it makes everything they do less special.  I don’t think Vanity has a great foundation that will get them through the hard times.  That might be their downfall in the end.

Coira Gets Some Airtime

I assume its Coira’s anniversary.  All I see are Robron fans acting like they aren’t getting enough time on screen or together but Coira….Coira really has been screwed over and their fans haven’t been raising that much of a fuss about it. God bless them. Those two are very cute. I love how Cain needs help to plan a surprise including his mother.  That is a big step for Cain.  Can’t wait to see what Cain has up his sleeve.

The Letter of Truth

A magazine ruined the surprise for me *STUPID SOAP…WHATEVER* but the letter gymnastics and everything coming together was well done.  Between Kerry and Daz talking in ‘code’ in front of Bernice to Bernice demanding that she know.  Standing up for herself (LOOK THAT THEME IS BACK) and everything coming out with one breath.  I know this story isn’t liked but it has had an even beat going for it.  Daz has a storyline people. I’M JUST SAYING. (SOME OUT THERE ARE GETTING IT. *wink*)

Pub for you. Pub for Me.

Ok. Chas is getting worse.  They are purposely putting undereye bags on Lucy now.  She is still looking sick.  I have theories man. So many theories about Chas and that baby.  I don’t think its going to survive. They are making sure we know the baby is there. Chas isn’t handling it well.  It has been a rough time.

Faith working behind the bar makes me smile. Don’t ask me why.

I agree with Diane.  The pub needs some healthy competition. Also, it’s very limited competition since they have one type of ale while the pub has many types of beer, wine, hard liquor and food. Play to your strengths Chas. You got a good thing going. They just have a microbrewery that people will get bored with over time.  Also, LACHLAN IS GOING TO KILL SOMEONE THERE. Ahem…anyway. Oh wait, a many people have died at the pub. OH WELL.
