Awkward Review: "No Doubt"
As if last week didn’t muddy the waters further, "No Doubt" was another drive by of an episode for Awkward... and it was all because of that stupid letter!
While I’m glad Tamara didn’t actually write it and the list of suspects has been dwindling more and more, it has become a little annoying working through what seems to be everyone in the entire school in an effort to figure out who was behind it.
Who are we down to now? My count is Ming, Jake, Matty, and maybe Lissa.
Though I seriously doubt Ming would write something like that, my mind isn’t made up on Matty or Jake. But it felt like Matty was exonerated tonight. With that said, I know what you’re thinking: how could Jake possibly write something that mean? But that’s the great thing about him potentially writing the letter: he’s the last person anyone would ever suspect. Especially after he refused to read that cruel letter Sadie and Lissa wrote to Jenna – he was feeling guilty.
Wait, was that another clue drop for us? Ugh, damn that letter! It’s like the smoke monster of stationary.
Moving on from the letter and onto the green pastures of Reseda, the date between Matty and Jenna was adorable, even if Jenna was full of paralyzing self-doubt and second-guessing about Matty’s true motives.
In the end, the date between the two of them ended up like a meeting of families. We learned that Matty actually took Jenna to a restaurant his uncle owned, something he was never comfortable doing before – bringing a girl home. The same can be said for Jenna, sort of.
Watching Matty interact and have fun with Ming and Tamara was just pure fun and we got to learn a few new things about everyone. Not to mention Ming was finally given something to do! Other than her “do all boners look like weapons?” line weeks ago there hasn’t been very much for her.
Thankfully, all of that changed with “sex touch.” Whatever that is.
Overall, “No Doubt” lived up to its name. I never have any doubts anymore about whether or not I’ll enjoy Awkward and I’m more than a little bummed that next week is the season finale.
- It was about time Jake kicked Lissa to the curb. Her shenanigans with Sadie were getting downright ruthless.
- I thought for sure Jake and Jenna were going to smooch when he was on the porch.
- I really wish MTV could air the show without bleeps - but there's always the DVD right?
- ... I may have just figured out what a sex touch is.
