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!
Robron and Chas
I love how Chas has fully accepted Robert back into the family fold. She tells him she is glad he is back for Aaron. Considers him family by calling a ‘family meeting’ to help Aaron. Its very sweet and I’m glad its back. I hated when Chas was cruel to Robert. Especially when they had a good thing going. Looks like we are slowly getting it back.
I’m very much happy with Robron right now. I know how people feel and everyone has the right to feel how they feel. I’m in a good place with my favorite couple and favorite characters. They are stable. They are strong. They have never been this good in such a long time. Even 2016, which great, was so unstable at any second, I was afraid Aaron would just kick Robert out. Now? I don’t fear that at all. They are a family. They will fight because that is real life, but I know they will work it out like adults. I love that a soap couple gets this. None of my favorite soap pairings got this stability…EVER. Its lovely and I’m going to enjoy it.
Joe and Debbie and Rebecca
I put these three together because they share scenes with Debbie. I won’t lie. For once, I skipped scenes. I KNOW. I skipped all the Joe and Debbie scenes. I’m going to have to look around and ask what happened to them. I assume they just went back and forth. WHATEVER. I don’t care about them.
Let’s talk about the yellow elephant in the room. Rebecca’s scene with Debbie. There are many interpretations. NONE OF THEM ARE WRONG. Let me state that now. No one’s interpretations are wrong. Here is how I saw the scene. If you are willing to read my thoughts on this.
First, Debbie only talks to Rebecca when Joe is involved. Why? Debbie needs someone to push her towards him and we know her family won’t be doing that. So, here is Rebecca. That is what their friendship is about now. That’s the first thing I wanted to get out.
The love story stuff. I didn’t see it as Rebecca saying that she and Robert had a grand love story. I think she was just thinking of the movies. No, if anything, she was describing Robron’s love story with the arguing and great sex. That is how they got started. (Touch my Car ring a bell to anyone?). It was a roundabout way of the show having her admit she only went to get Robert for herself and now she has no what-ifs because she had him for one night and one night only. BEFORE EVERYONE FREAKS OUT…she only had him because he was drunk and sad about his true love. Which makes it even less of a love story. It was a horror from start to finish. So, in a sense, the show is arguing she had no real purpose other than being a thorn in Robert and Aaron’s side. So, I think it was the show closing out 2017 for good. Moving her along. She has done her part for the Robron story. She can leave the plot and join another one. Maybe get back to Lachlan, perhaps?
Oh, I also think they had her talk about that because they needed to move Joe and Debbie along. She left the Robron story but now she is being a plot device for another couple. How nice of her.
Belle (she gets her own section today)
Oh, Belle. I worry so much about her. She is just falling off the deep end and her parents aren’t helping. Lachlan isn’t helping. She is struggling, and I wonder how far this will go before someone (cough AARON uncough) pulls her back from the edge. Eden is a great actress and I’m enjoying her being able to play that side of Belle again.
Lachlan and Gerry
They are really giving Lachlan layers again. It’s interesting. If we compare him to the other White running around the village, he is just full of character and life and we are with him even though we know he is bad. He is breaking because Belle is breaking. Since she is breaking, he is starting to let on some of his secrets. The thing that eats at him. His stabilizing force, The Dingles, and Belle, are eroding and so is his sanity. I SWEAR TO GOD. If he kills Gerry I will be PISSED. I love that kid.
I left out the Doug and Gabby stuff because I just don’t care. Gabby annoys me right now so I’m going to keep my mouth shut about her. Doug is Doug. *Snort* I love when he sang with Robert. That still holds a special place in my heart.
