So, this episode was the soapiest piece of shit that they’ve aired, right?
I just. I really hated this episode. Sure, there were a couple big plot developments (PAPA ARGENT IS A MEANIE! AMILY IS IN A COMA! HER BEHBEH HAS BEEN BORNED!), but MY GOD was this episode bad. The acting, the writing, the weird lack of Nolan. All of it. No bueno.
I thought maybe I could attribute it to the truly heinous mood I was in last night, but no. It was just bad.
Here are the high points:
Amily fell over a bannister at the Grayson Mansion during her baby shower, directly after she confronted V about being “Charlotte Clarke” and knowing where Emanda’s mother, whose name is Kara btw, is. So now Amily is in a medically induced coma and the behbeh has been delivered. So Jack is now a devoted, basically single dad.
Jack owes Papa Argent a shit ton of money and he still can’t open his bar because—turns out—Papa Argent is paying off the health inspector AND Chandler Drake so that he can buy the bar, I suspect on the cheap (meaning free), from the Porters. That seems like A LOT of trouble to go through just to “buy” a bar, right?
The Initiative—which is the weird organization that WHA worked for—is sniffing around, chatting up the Graysons, trying to find WHA, whom they believe went rogue. The lady on the phone last week with Conrad actually wasn’t Kara, just some Iniatitve Lady. And Kara is afraid of them. So, they’re still overlording around and being vague.
Daniel and Ashley are being honest with each other these days.
Aiden was briefly tied up by Kara, who thinks Aiden is either Initiative or working for the Graysons. But he escapes. And Kara hears on the radio that Amanda Clarke was injured at the Grayson house, so she goes to the hospital and is sitting beside Amily, and Emanda sees her mom and SUDDENLY REMEMBERS THAT THE WOMAN TRIED TO DROWN HER. WTF.
Nolan’s dad died! He didn’t know! He and Padma go to claim his stuff in storage. Nolan and Padma kiss, and then abscond to Paris.
No seriously, those are the high points. SO SOAPY.
- Emanda looks very tan in this episode
- Nolan is better at kissing boys than girls.
- Padma finds the framed investment check from David Clarke for NolCorp. I assume this means something will be afoot.
And that is seriously all I have to say this week. I hope one of you enjoyed this episode more than I did! Please do let me know ALL OF THE THINGS in comments.
