When we make mistakes in our lives, we search for forgiveness. No one wants to be defined by their mistakes and most people want forgiveness from the mistakes that they have made. The truth is, forgiveness is something that we’re not always given, even when we’re fighting for it.
Emily wants forgiveness from Cami and is practicing what she wants to say to Cami, but Mindy has to be the one to break it to her that just because she want forgiveness, doesn’t mean that she is going to get it. The harsh truth is sometimes the best thing that a friend can give.
Emily explaining herself isn’t going to get her forgiveness.
Emily is returning the pan to Gabriel, who is kind and lets Emily know that he is sorry. I genuinely believe that he is sorry because he wants to protect Emily. He loves her. He is avoiding Cami. He says he’s not, but lets be honest, he is. I would avoid her too. Gabriel has too much to hide and he’s definitely not good at hiding his feelings.
Emily claims she wants nothing from him, but she does. She just doesn’t know it yet.
EMILY AND CAMI
Emily has a big day ahead, because at the office she’s going to have to see Cami. How do you face the person that you betrayed? If we’re being honest, one thing that I do agree with Cami on from last episode, is that Emily was pretending to be her friend. For me that would sting more, but for Cami – I have no idea what hurts more.
Cami doesn’t even acknowledge Emily. She’s nice as fuck to everyone else, but is going to do whatever she can to be rude to Emily. She insists that the meeting be conducted in French, even though she knows that Emily can’t speak French. This brings Sophie some sort of joy, you can see it in her eyes.
But as usual Luc steps in saves the day in the meeting.
Luc is always trying to keep the peace in his own way. Emily is feeling down and you see it in her eyes. Cami won’t talk to her and when she gets to the elevator, as Emily begs to talk to her, Cami tells her that it doesn’t matter the language, she doesn’t believe anything that Emily has to say.
Emily has a new client, leek farmers. Now, I can honestly say that I have never had a leek and never want to have a leek, but that’s just me. At least I think I never want to have a leek, until it’s after work and we see Emily running into Gabriel.
She’s got to figure out how to market a leek and he shows her how great they can taste. The way that these two are when they are together is the way I want someone to be with me. There’s like this magnetism that flows off the screen, this chemistry that flows off the screen.
Gabriel and Emily are our ship, but they are getting in their own way. Emily and him know it too. She tells him to tell Cami that what happened between them means nothing. But how fucking selfish is that? It’s a lie to everyone and didn’t that already get them into enough trouble?
Gabriel goes to talk to Cami and that doesn’t go over well. She tells him that Emily didn’t trip and fall on his dick – but I will a test that can happen. Just saying. He tells her that he still loves her.
I don’t want Cami and Gabriel to be together, but I do hope that Gabriel sees that he’s not helping by doing what Emily asked him to do.
THE THEIF FROM CLASS
Oh Petra, Petra… girl. Emily is held back and has to repeat French 1, after thinking she was getting promoted to French 2. But Petra girl is not umm… she does not have her shit together.
When held back in class, Emily has to have a new French partner. She tries to sit with hot dude, but he’s like seriously rude and aloof and Emily is put off. So she goes to the only other open seat in class, next to Petra.
Petra is overly excited, just like Emily is in life, and they seem to hit it off. They have coffee and are trying to communicate, but when Emily said she gets stuff for free, Petra got too excited.
She thought Emily meant shoplifting but what she meant was she gets it from her job. So Petra and her go shopping; Emily thinking that they are practicing their French, Petra thinking they are getting a new wardrobe.
As they run off, Emily does it because she’s half startled and afraid. But as they stop, she realizes what they’ve done and takes everything from Petra to take it back.
See did see Les Miserables after all, and know what happens to thieves in that movie.
But the thing is – I know that means she’s getting a new french partner so I am not upset about it.
LUC SOMETIMES SHOULDN’T HAVE IDEAS
Luc has good ideas and sometimes bad ideas. Emily tells him that she didn’t get into French 2 and he says that he will help her. He has the idea to take her to a French film and immerse her in the language.
No shocker here, that shit is seriously disturbed.
But that being said I love all the time that Emily and Luc spend together. They are just fun.
He gives Emily the idea to write a letter to Cami, which is one of his bad ideas. But Emily is excited at the prospect and so she writes one, in French.
And it’s bad.
It’s really bad.
Sometimes it’s best to let things take their natural path, but Emily isn’t about to let that happen. She writes a letter that makes no sense, because it is wrong grammatically.
But she tries, and I will give her a thumbs up for that.
The thing about Emily In Paris is they definitely know how to take a moment and keep going with it. They have the reading of the letter so funny that I couldn’t stop laughing. And that’s part of the joy of the show.
Emily in Paris gives you little bits of everything making you love these characters so much.
MINDY’S LIFE IS LOOKING UP
Mindy is at the club, when she’s approached by two dudes. These two tell her that they have a better job for her. She tells them she doesn’t have a work visa, but they tell her that she doesn’t need one.
I am excited for the prospect, but when we all find out that it is playing music in the streets, aren’t we all taken a back?
But the thing is as we watch her perform, we know that it doesn’t matter. Mindy is just meant to shine. She’s meant to give the world hope with her music. She’s meant to do bring peoples hearts alive with the sound of her voice.
And I for one am rooting for her, no matter where she performs.
Emily in Paris is streaming now on Netflix.
