Hello out there! This is very late, and I’m sorry to the five people that read this! I decided to leave the house. I promise it won’t happen again. (ha ha ha…In case Kat is reading this…I had a great time.) This will be a little bit different than my usual ‘initial reactions’ and more of my thoughts on individual stories going on.
Here is how I’m looking at this relationship. We are spending quite a bit of time with Leyla and Priya and their relationship with each other than just the cheating. It is like, how do women react to this? Also, Leyla looks amazing in that wedding dress. It’s bad luck to wear a wedding dress if you aren’t married though. Hmm, isn’t that interesting.
Also, Pete deserved that burn. He is messing around on Leyla. Screw him.
I don’t know if anyone is noticing some patterns with the cheating storylines.
1) Robron: Drunk, broken, hates himself is taken advantage of by someone who thinks in her own head that she belongs and owns him.
2) Diane/Doug: Diane wants to miss him, so she is taking a break (dating other people) and Doug just wants her back (“We were on a break” situation)
3) Charity/Frank: Long forgotten cheating that ended up meaning nothing but will affect the significant others.
4) Priya/Pete/Leyla: It is a classic triangle cheating soap storyline with a twist of seeing how female relationships come into play.
These situations are all different but share one quality. Cheating. All forms of cheating. Must add up to something.
Pierce found the locket and took it. I don’t know if that would be evidence of some sort or meant to screw with Paddy (since Paddy shows up right after that scene) but I didn’t like Pierce grabbing it.
That scene with Pearl was interesting. It is what Rhona is afraid of happening. People will hear what has happened and not be able to reconcile the Pierce they know versus the Pierce Rhona knows. Happens all the time. (Bill Cosby for example. Don’t worry, karma will get him in the end).
This storyline is going very well. This has been a huge star turn for Zoe Henry. I hope the award shows next year remember to honor all her hard work. Same with Jonathan Wrather who plays Pierce (Great Villian).
Harriet is remembering. Cain suddenly cares what Harriet thinks of his actions. The Bartons are even more desperate than ever. I like Emma, I tolerate Finn. Ross can go frack himself for all I care.
I know people are divided on the Harriet and Cain relationship. I see them as a sweet distraction from the real ship, Moira/Cain. Moira is now back in Cain’s orbit all because of Harriet. Let’s see how this plays out. (I’m Team Coira but I don’t hate Harriet/Cain. They aren’t worth hating.) I’d love to see a story about Harriet’s past. We now know why she left the force. What else is going on there? What people in Harriet’s past can come back? I hope someday the show goes into that.
‘It’s Just Speculation!’
Expect a long essay on fandom, social media, and spoilers coming very soon.
As usual, I heed my warning: DON’T GO ONTO THE MESSAGE BOARDS! It will only spread stupid rumors and cause you unneeded misery!
