Well you guys, I don’t know. Maybe twitter overprepared me to hate this episode, or maybe I was just in such a good mood from live hatetweeting The Bachelorette, but I actually thought this episode was not bad, and not even JUST because of Wet Wade, Shirtless Wade, and Sex Scene Wade, although that would’ve been more than enough for me. So I have some nice stuff to say about this episode, but let me also just say how fucking happy I am that this was the season finale, because I can’t DO this anymore. At some point around “George is my soulmate, let me book a fancy New Orleans hotel,” it just became exhausting for me and I am DONE. I mean, I’ll probably still watch it, even if only while I recap other shit or have arts and crafts time, but if it gets recapped next year, it will not be by me. Although I am fairly certain that HBC will be more than happy to keep you up to your elbows in Wade gifs.
So, as I believe I mentioned last week, I have a real thing for stormy barn scenes thanks to my obsession with The Wonder Years. This one was pretty good, except the lighting (and the fighting, really) could’ve been more dramatic. However, I was HORRIFIED when the tiny baby goat got loose. I even wrote in my notes, in all caps, “NOT THE BABY GOAT!” I was CONCERNED. However, as always, Wade stripping down fixed everything. And honestly … how did that goat get that tangled up in barbed wire, and can’t goats eat through wire, and couldn’t Wade (and/or Zoe) have just lifted the wire in a place where there was no barb? I mean, Jesus, people. Still, a baby goat got rescued and I like that. Although, where was that goat’s mother? It really should’ve been watching to make sure its baby didn’t escape during some damn fool scheme to get a white shirt wet over candy.
But anyway. I liked the barn scene, how some stuff got put out in the open, how you got to see the way Wade had convinced himself that his feelings for Zoe were nothing more than her playing hard to get, and how she’d convinced herself that they were all wrong for each other, and the way the sexual tension was mounting. I loved that she called him over with the coffee pot, and he knew immediately what was going on. I do think, that for as torrential a downpour was it was, he was pretty dry when he showed up at her door, but not to worry–everyone else was wet enough to MORE than make up for it, IF YA KNOW WHAT I MEAN. The sex was super hot but also sort of sweet, and hopefully the beginning of her feelings for Wade. I was sort of okay with the end, just because she seemed more confused than anything, and given that the (stupid) story for the last few weeks has been about her George obsession, it does make story sense. But hello, NAKED, SEXY WADE IN YOUR BED. There’s really nothing to be confused about here.
Well, it’s pretty hard to talk about anything after that, and I’m guessing that most of you will stop reading here anyway, but let’s just discuss the rest of it to say we did, shall we? Or rather, let’s just do a quick bullet list of things I liked, and then we’ll critique Lemon’s taste in wedding crap. That’s where the real fun is, right?
- Liked the whole “signs of a squall” thing–small town and charming, in a cute, goofy way. Ditto everyone helping on the firehouse (although let’s not think too hard about how it looked abandoned but the dalmatian still lives there).
- Love Lavon (always), and how he’s trying to move on and deal with how his life will be with living in a small town and having to see and interact with George and Lemon. It was sad in that sort of realistic way, but it made me love him more.
- LOVED having more Annabeth, and being able to see a little more why she and Lemon are friends (history, mainly).
- Liked the potential love interest for Brick.
Okay, now to critiquing Lemon’s taste in wedding stuff! (More bullets. I’m an addict.)
- First of all, that dress was AMAZEBALLS. The jewelry was fab–the hair was a little plain, but anything more might’ve been too much and it’s not like she doesn’t have the face to pull it off.
- The cake? HIDEOUS. I’ve shit more attractive pieces of cake.
- The swans were over the top, but I do think they’re pretty, so I’m going to consider it a wash.
- The bridesmaid dresses were GORGEOUS.
- The flowers, not so much.
- How about the HORRIFYINGLY HIDEOUS huge, heart-shaped (whoa, alliteration!) cheeseball picture of Lemon and George? I almost puked.
So basically, I think what we can take away from this whole thing is that if you happen to be planning a wedding and Lemon offers to help, let her dress everyone and not do anything else.
Alright, what did you guys think of this episode? I know that everyone has OPINIONS, so let’s hear it! You don’t even need prompting, do you? To the comments!
