Simone is a very realistic character. She's the cute, spoiled rich girl that won't shut up and won't go away. Toby takes after Katharine, he's too sweet sometimes. But I don't think he'll put up with Simone for too much longer. She's lied to him twice now. The more she get's away with it, the more she'll do it until Toby finally can't take anymore. It'll fun to see her not get what she wants for a change. I predict that she won't handle it well.
While I think Wilkie likes Daphne a lot and is very caring towards her, I don't think he's ready for the challenges of having a deaf girlfriend, even if Daphne is highly functional. I think he forgets that she's deaf and doesn't take learning to sign seriously at all. Daphne's doing all the work and I think she knows it.
As for Travis, I can understand his anger. I'm glad John gave him a second chance but if he doesn't start being a little nicer to Daphne, who has bent over backwards to help him, I may not root for him in the future. I'm a little disapointed in the writers here, it's obvious they are setting him up to be a love interest for Daphne. It's too obvious.
I understand that Katharine had a bleeding heart for the nurse but to pay her a lot of money suddenly would look extremely bad. Also, while John is overbearing, it's still not good to lie to your husband. I can see why he'd be upset. Katharine is kind of fucking things up a bit. She should go back to her book because she's a feelings person, not a business type.
Also, there's weird sparks flying between her and the young, eager lawyer. No, Kathy, don't do it! He's not even a very good lawyer, you won't get anything in the divorce :p
I'm glad they brought up Ty, he left suddenly because the actor was signed to another show but there would still be issues there. Bay never really had much closure there and I felt like she got it tonight. She's also proven once again how brave she is, that's a difficult conversation for an adult never mind a kid. And I think she knew that she had let the situation go on for too long, she needed to tell Ty that she had moved on. It shows a lot of maturity but in a realistic manner, no cheesy after school special.
Emmett is so insecure right now. His family just broke up, he feels like his whole life is falling apart and that he can't be sure of anything anymore. His parents' divorce have left him with serious trust issues and naturally he's taking it out on Bay. But to expect that Bay never had feelings for Ty which is exactly how a boy would feel about the first girl he's ever loved.
Georgina is WAY too powerful to be believable. Then again, Blair's brain seems to be up her ass these days and she was the only one to take G down before, so wash.
Lola is awesome and also, totally a Van der Woodsen. Man, there's secret children everywhere. Im sure she'll be quickly forgotten like Scott, even though I was glad of that.
Jack saved Chuck? No. Jack would be the one that finally throws Chuck off a roof so he can steal his brother's millions. AND THAT'S THE WAY WE LIKE HIM.
Ivy was cold! But then again clearly there was a side of CeCe that she knew but no one else bothered to. I feel cheated I wanted to know the CeCe that was friends with her butcher and enjoyed a good ol' Irish pint. Oh CeCe, I will miss you. But one thing about the apartment. Didn't Lily and Bart buy that while they were married? Or did Lily just finish construction on it and they moved in? Either way, its not 100% clear.
About the preview. I KNEW IT. I had a feeling this was coming. Dan and Blair are friends. They've never had any chemistry in the previous seasons despite what the producers said. I dont know about Chuck and Blair, I think even the actors are sick of playing the same scene over and over again. I knew I'm sick of watching it. "Oh Chuck I love you but I can't be with you"! Basically, I hate Blair's love life and wish that it wasn't the focus of the show. It's saved them in the past but now its making Blair look flighty and weak. She's basically going from one guy to the next and weeping about all of them.
Robin just doesn't love Ted. She never has, that's why she was so reluctant to get together with him in the first place but Ted is a persistent sweetheart and boyfriend material. It's pretty hard not to want that. Robin just gave up Kevin because she knew that he wanted kids, she would do the same thing for Ted.
As for Barney and Robin, I have no idea what's happening there. Barney said he was over it and I kind of believe him. They were my favorites, so it was disappointing. But Robin didn't have the courage to break up with Kevin for him, so I guess it was no meant to be.
I dont mind a Dair couple but say that Dan was ALWAYS in love with Blair is bunk. He just started getting to know her this year. After everything that happened between Blair and his sister it was understandable that he wouldn't be her biggest fan. But they bonded over their love of cinema and then became friends. He has tried in the past to be nice to Blair but she was never receptive of it until this year and Dan had no romantic interest in her until just now.
He apparently has been writing Inside since high school, when he was in love with Serena and Blair was in the way of that. How is it that Serena is barely in there, yet Blair is the main character? What? This is bad writing here guys.
Although I warmed up to Melody a bit in this episode, I was annoyed that she went after her ex at the expense of her friend's show and the well being of her son. Yes what Cameron's doing is wrong on so many levels but yelling at him in public is not going to help your son feel better. Olivia bugs me. I know plenty of alternative thinking people that never would have poured whiskey for an upset 16 year old. That's just asking for trouble.
As for Bay and Emmett, their love seems to have so many hurdles :( I think Bay perhaps should have gone to Regina instead. Maybe give a buffer between her and Melody so that Emmett would have been a little less mad. Going straight to his mother may have been the responsible thing to do but it certainly isn't going to do much for their trust issues.
