As recently as yesterday, I was seeing complaints that Lizzie Bennett Diaries was woobiefying George Wickham too much. I'd say today's video puts that one to rest.

Well, if they hadn’t been watching the Lydia arc as well, he is disarmingly charming.

WHICH IS THE WHOLE POINT OF HIM.  YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO THINK HE’S A NICE GUY.  WHEN HE’S REALLY A ‘NICE GUY™’.

I’ve been wondering for awhile if those are people who never really got the book?

I mean, one of my favorite lines is one of Lizzie’s, “One has got all the goodness, and the other all the appearance of it.”  You’re supposed to think he’s the victim.

When he’s really a rat-bastard.

I think they’re doing a spectacular job, really, adapting things so they resonate in a modern retelling.

/I have a lot of LBD feels, apparently, sorry.

(not sorry)

Honestly I would have thought it out of character if Lydia didn’t bring up Bing insensitively while Jane was present. I was kind of waiting for it, or at least waiting for some hint of Mrs Bennet being insensitive. But Lydia works just as well.

Re the question of Gigi’s age when Wickham happened (via glamaphonic)

I really think that Gigi is about the same age as Lydia, and she probably would be just legal or 19-ish at the time. I would say she’s at university now. Though of course there’s no real conclusive evidence either way. But the idea that she was under-aged when whatever with Wickham happened and Darcy chose to let it go just sort of sit in all the wrong places for me. I know it’s not entirely impossible though. Also I think George Wickham is very opportunistic but cautious enough not to let what he do blacken his reputation, so I would like to think that even he would not risk getting involved in what would certainly be illegal situations with under-aged girls. Then again, he’s probably capable… 

Dang, that lydia video was tough to watch. And I keep forgetting, Lydia ends UP with Wickham in the end….

Maybe, they’ll change it up a bit. I don’t know. I don’t want Lydia to end up with him, but at the same time, I dont want them to change that major part of the story. But Lydia and Lizzie have to make up, right? But part of who Lizzie is, is that she can’t forgive her for what she’s done. But… what exactly has she done wrong, in this version, except fall for the wrong guy? And allowed herself to be manipulated? 

What I see happening is Darcy intervening  offering Wickham money to STAY with Lydia, as apposed to offering him money to leave her. But man, I just don’t see this ending well for Lydia.

AND THE QUESTION MARK FOR NEXT WEEKS PREVIEW? Something smelly is about to hit the fans!
