We are back one more week! And the day arrived. Heels 1×06 “House Show” got us emotional and made us shed some tears. Finally, this show touched our hearts in a memorable way and we can only think about the possibilities from here. Until now, Heels had been empty, it was a show without a heart, without a soul. But not anymore.
This is not a drill! Heels got me emotional! Episode 1×06 “House Show” had to arrive for this show to stir my heart. Contrary to what I thought, it was not Jack who did it, but Ace, and I neither confirm nor deny that some – quite a few – tears escaped me in Shannon’s christening speech. It is a speech highlighting what a huge, great, dysfunctional and beautiful family they are.
It is a speech that comes from the heart and that is why it sounds real, authentic and manages to move us. That’s the key, keep it up Heels! And it is not the only Ace’s actions to praise in Heels 1×06 “House Show.” After the previous episode where I couldn’t stop wondering what the hell was wrong with this man, now he takes all my respect and admiration.
Ace is able to see that what he did is wrong, there are no excuses for this, he should not have done it and his behavior is something to reflect on and regret. In addition, he also talks to Crystal, he really talks to her and, in the end, he accepts that the important thing is her happiness and that if that means that he should not be in her life … he must respect that.
I loved the scene where Ace apologizes. He does not excuse himself, he does not justify himself, he does not try to take away the iron from the matter. There are three words: I am sorry. Really sincere, without downgrades, with nothing but regret in his words. It honors him. This is how you do it.
Crystal, on her part, feels guilty about what happened but she is not to blame. Yes, she could have thought a little more about the consequences of what she was about to do but the only culprit here is Ace. He says it himself: “no excuses.”
In another vein, in Heels 1×06 “House Show” Jack must learn to balance his personal life with his professional life. He is not able to enjoy a happy event with his family or just be with his wife and his son hanging out. Jack turns it all into a business meeting. But businesses are not going to embrace him at night or love him. Jack must realize that business, money, power, and success are nothing if you don’t have someone to share them with. To have all these things and to have no one is to have nothing, it is to be empty. So I’m glad his wife stopped him and gave him an ultimatum. Jack can’t go on like this.
And… super proud of Willie! That is my girl! That guy doesn’t deserve someone like you. You have to be respected. You are a lot of woman for so little man.
And here ends our Heels 1×05 “House Show” review. We will be back next week with a new one!
