Drama, drama, drama. Outer Banks captures drama at every turn and that’s a good thing. One thing that this show excels at is making you so emotionally invested in every moment and every character that you take the drama, embrace it, and hope for more.
We can all say that we don’t like drama, but I challenge those people that they have never watched Outer Banks.
We pick up in episode three right where we left off, Sarah has been shot and John B is trying to get her to stay with him. He’s called Terrance for help and for once, I actually like that asshole cause he gets it for her.
Now, should I be focused on the gold? Well only because I don’t want Ward or Rafe to get it, but I am more focused on the fact that John B and Sarah are about to have a big moment. There is one thing that you know with shows like this, everyone is gonna have that defining that either tears them apart or brings them together. And since this is geared towards a younger crowd, we can guarantee that it’s gonna be a lot of that.
Terrance and John B switch cars. Remind me never to drive with John B, because he drives like a bat out of hell and scares the shit out of me. Do I get that he’s saving someones life? Yes. But I can still be like boy, there’s no need to drive like that, you’re gonna kill someone.
Also, the last thing you need to do in life is draw any attention to yourself John B. The world is filled with way too many cameras and everyone posts everything.
While John B is getting Sarah to the doctor, back in the Outer Banks, Pope is visited by the Vanderhorst Foundation. He’s just as in shock as the rest of us that they are there, because of the way he stormed out of the interview for his scholarship in Season 1.
But this envelope is suspect. It has the same thing on it as the gold bars. What do these people know about the gold? Because they truly have to know something based on the fact the letter inside says that they have evidence that can clear John B.
What I love about these group of friends is that they are ride or die. They don’t give up on each other. There is anything that can help them, they are all over it. And that’s how friends should be.
There is nothing better than seeing loyalty. It’s a quality that most people don’t embrace. It’s a quality that shows what a persons true character is.
WILL SHE MAKE IT?
Now we all know that Terrance is suspect, and so is the doctor that he sent Sarah and John B too.
Wade is trying to calm Rafe and is like your sister is alive. She’s gonna be okay, but asks what he was thinking pointing a gun at her. Rafe looks completely out oh his mind when he admits that he hit his sister with the gun.
And honestly I am glad to see Wade worry. Dumb ass.
Sarah has lost a lot of blood. John B wants to do anything to save her and I love seeing love. I have seen enough of these things to know that Sarah’s going to be touch and go, they’re going to think she’s dead, and then someones going to give up. John B will admit that he loves her, a part of her body will move, and then we’ll hear her voice. It’s tropey and cliche and that’s okay.
And I love it.
What I also love is that Sarah is determined to get to the ship and get to the gold. I guess the adrenaline has kicked in for her. Then again a half a billion would motivate the fuck out of me too.
Sarah is smart, determined, and guided by both intelligence and emotional. The both sides of her are very important to the overall character development. It’s also important to everyone else’s development.
When Sarah and John B get to the docks, the police are everywhere. They are taking the gold off the boat. Wade’s told them he was robbed and they believe him. John B and Sarah are recognized and when they take off, guns are shooting, all of that. They accidentally hit Cleo who miraculously they have time to keep asking if she’s okay before taking off.
I didn’t like Cleo at first, but I have grown to like her. She helps them get away. She’s wanting a regular life, one that doesn’t involve danger and breaking law at every moment. She is also a person of her word and she helps Sarah and John B get away.
That boat of her fathers that was stolen is what she leads them to. Cleo – I thought she was the most untrustworthy person ever, but I was wrong. She’s a good person and even puts herself at risk to help John B and Sarah get away.
Do I think these two are smart heading back to Outer Banks? Nope. I don’t. But I also know that this story is still unfolding.
When they see land, they both are happy. They are almost out of gas and both are in desperate need of a shower. But more than anything they need to see their friends and clear their names.
JJ and Pope are going to Charleston as the letter requested. Kie has to tell her Mom, who says that she can’t go. And I get it. She wants to protect her little girl. But if there is anything that we all know about these three it’s that they would do anything for each other. And that’s ok.
They know that they will do anything to clear John B and Sarah. Her parents don’t understand why if they are dead. What does it matter? They think she’s acting out, but don’t get that what she’s doing is necessary.
So they threaten to send her to boarding school, but that’s not gonna stop her.
On the way to Charleston, they have issues with the truck and it needs to get fixed. Now at first, I have to say that this means they’ll never meet with the person that sent Pope the letter, but I should know better.
Everything happens for a reason. There is so much left to unfold. After all we’re only on episode 3. These guys were meant to breakdown to see how far they can go with each other. They needed a reason to stay.
Because you see – John B and Sarah are about to land in Charleston. Hopefully the Pogues are about to be reunited and that will change everything.
