Before I get to the content today, I have to give a shout out to the tech crew. Some fucking beautiful shots tonight. Most notably for me, the distance shot of Rhona and Lisa talking and Rhona’s darkened living room. I actually got creeped out at that one. When the show looks limo this, I want to save my money to finally get my dual citizenship, move to Leeds and get on that crew. Just beautiful.
Speaking of Rhona and Pierce, just what is mommy dearest up to? The last time we saw her it seemed as though she knew what Pierce was really like and that she could possibly be an ally for Rhona, but now she’s breaking into Rhona’s house? I can’t tell if she’s doing these things to try and set up Pierce or if she’s gaslighting Rhona. I think I prefer the gaslighting version, I just can’t think of why considering previously she was hoping that Rhona would find out what Pierce was like for herself. Maybe she really was as awful as he said. He must’ve learned to lie that well somehow.
I’m calling it now. Tracy feels bad for Josh, finds out for sure just how badly he has it at home and somehow manages to convince the rest of the fam (except maybe Eric, though I think he’ll just be the last hold out in the end) to take him in. A year from now Josh and Jacob will be best friends.
Thank god that tape is back in play. Now We just need Arthur to tell someone! He’s so close, what with being thrown off by Emma coming over. Hopefully soon Laurel wants to sit down and talk to him about why he acted the way he did and it comes out. I worry though that with her hypertension and stress (which can be much worse than she’s letting on. Strokes are no joke.) that she’ll lose it when she finds out and it will exacerbate her symptoms. Maybe that’s just me reading into her making Nicola Arthur and Dottie’s godmother though.
It’s really been a year since the fire? My gawd how time flies! Anyway, I think Priya and Nicola are going to make a fierce team. They likely will fight a lot, but I think that’s when Nicola’s at her best and I’m really enjoying watching Priya become stronger and stronger. Watching her take on Pete was awesome… and likely made him want her more.
Finally, more compliments. This time to Lisa and Nicola who gave the greatest advice maybe ever today. They are both truly awesome ladies who I would love to be friends with, you know, if they were real.
