“A brutal survivor with few moral lines left to cross. Joel, now in his late 40s, has been hardened by the ravages of the fungal pandemic that has devastated civilization as we know it. He’s lost friends, family, and everything he valued in life. Living in one of few remaining military-controlled quarantine zones, he operates as a black market smuggler, dealing in contraband, taking numerous de-humanizing jobs over the years to survive in this new post-pandemic world. Joel’s conscience slowly dwindles away as he shuts down his emotions to cope to his new life.”
To that anon on here who asked me about Joel - after watching the latest episode I still agree w/ my answer that I love him. I almost want to root for him and Zoe, but that lack of chemistry just ain’t gonna cut it. But I wouldn’t mind him sticking around Blue Bell. He’s been very fun to watch - but he takes a lot of screen time away from fan favorites - particularly Wade so it’s no surprise fans are getting annoyed.
BTW I loved Wade in this ep. Even though he didn’t get the screen time his role as a snarky bystander to the chaos was perfect. The best was when he was munching on popcorn with the campers while Joel made a fool of himself on the zipline. And I loved his line to Zoe about Joel being wrong about George - that it’s really himself who Zoe still loves. It always bothered me that in the world of Bluebell George is the best pick for Zoe, when in fandom world (mostly*) everyone’s rooting for her and Wade so we finally had someone speaking for the fandom!
ALSO I LOVE LEMON. So far we’ve seen her bring George out of his funk, sacrifice herself to help a Wade a need, and now help Lavon out despite her problems with the Belles? SHE IS JUST SO AMAZING AND HAS GROWN SO MUCH I CAN’T. MY BBY.
Zoe needs to take a Lemon lesson and get her ish together. I do love Zoe and she essentially has a good heart and cares about the people of Bluebell, but she still is so selfish. I understand that her ridiculous antics are what create storylines, but she’s the only character who’s basically stayed the same. I admit she’s grown to accept that Bluebell isn’t just a stop in her life, but she’s still too controlling and selfish and I would like to see her progress more this season.
~Next week more Lemonade so I’m happy about that! Except Lemon might leave the Rammer Jammer :( but I’m interested in how Wade takes the business partner split. I LOVE MY LEMONADE (otp/brotp)
