I love that this episode actually showed Shelby being upset with Erin. I
mean, she had every reason to be.
Erin, her supposed best friend, took credit for of her accomplishments. Not
just once or twice, but many many times. After all, they’ve been friends
since kindergarten. If Shelby is 18, that’s means Shelby’s suffered through
years of Erin’s stealing!
And then in this episode, without a thought, Erin pretended to be the pink
ranger, which unbeknownst to her, is actually Shelby. Once again, Erin took
credit for Shelby’s hard work. Worse,
didn’t stop her ruse even after
Shelby called her out on it. She didn’t care about the pink ranger’s feelings.
She only cared about her own fame.
To add insult to injury, after that initial fight, Shelby rushed into the
café shouting Erin’s name. Like here was Shelby scared that her best friend was
hurt and instead she discovered that Erin was stealing from her. Again.
I really liked how this episode, for the most part, validated Shelby’s
anger. After all, these kinds of slights take place in many friendships. I
think it’s so important that the kids watching this show learn that these
slights are hurtful and that it’s totally okay to be angry about them. Especially since so many young people, especially women, are taught to dismiss and suppress their own anger.
So let me get this straight: Heckyl, our main supervillain this season, has a monster whoseonly job is to make him cinnamon cookies. Not only that, he regularly sends out other monsters to fetch the ingredients for said cookies.
I’m laughing because these cookies aren’t part of an evil plan or serve any purpose, really. He just seems to like them.
