I won’t lie. It felt sort of like watching and episode of The Twilight Zone rather than TTD. It felt really odd. From the endless note-taking to the scathing omissions and inaccuracies to the weird anti-Bethyl vibe that totally contradicted CMP’s opinion from last season and CH’s opinion from two weeks ago.
Granted, I do feel like CMP’s remarks felt a little… sarcastic. Plus, you know, if they feel that the 57% are Bethylers and not just general viewers who, maybe, don’t like the idea of a romance between the pair that we saw on our screens tonight, then that’s their issue. It’s not all Bethylers, honestly.
And… did you see Tyler’s face when she and CH were talking about the “Noah/Beth Camp?” He’s like… umm… hmmm… nope… And then CH directs the question to him and he’s just like, “You plan an escape with someone, you’re pretty close,” and then he just used the canned sort of “it’s a possibility” answer. We see it take a lot of forms. “Never say never,” “you never know,” “it could be something,” “I guess we’ll see.” We’ve gotten a lot meatier, more direct statements regarding Bethyl and that’s just a fact. This was just spinning wheels and trying not to say anything one way or the other in any regard, because if he said, “no,” then people will immediately think Bethyl, while if he said “yes,” people would just assume it’s true. So… he’s been trained well.
Plus, hah, CH’s reaction to the possibility was so questionable, like he really wasn’t sure he could get behind Noah and Beth. Just go back and watch his face and listen to the uncertain sound he makes.
I just… I literally had to clench my teeth through the entire episode, and I had to watch it in segments, because my blood pressure couldn’t handle a full sit-through with that particular couch of guests and the conversations occurring on it. So, yeah… *queue Twilight Zone music*
