The thing about season three of Emily In Paris is that it is always moving fast and something is always happening. Though I am positive that we are propelling the story forward, sometimes it feels too fast. Sometimes it feels like it could have been done better.
Don’t get me wrong, I love this show. I am obsessed with this show. But it sometimes feels like they are taking the first two seasons, plugging plot holes, getting rid of characters, and just asking us to entrust that they are moving forward. Only, asking people to trust a show that has part of its charm from its plot holes.
Do we get that things need to change and move forward for the story to propel? Yes. But we also feel like there is a lot happening this season, which makes it all feel a little rushed. But again, doesn’t mean that we don’t love this show. Because we do.
Agence Grateau has lost the place that they were going to have the McLaren event. Everyone is panicked, but as usual Emily rises to the occasion and has an idea. She’s texting with her love, Alfie (and yes, we’ll call him her love, because we’ve switched teams and our ship is now Emily and Alfie) and the idea comes about to hold it at Antoine’s château.
Sylvie and Antoine, not really sure how it is that ever good for them to be in the same room. The two of them – I get that relationships are different – but I also feel like them in the same room never works out well. They fight, but also Antoine’s wife and Sylvie is the same place is never a good idea.
Gabriel is also attending the event. He’ll be the chef in charge. When they are all three having dinner that night and Camille said that she’s staying behind as she has somethings that she needs to do with Sofia. Well she said tie up, but I ignore anything she says, cause I dislike this character so much. Also, because we all know that she’s a liar.
Emily, Alfie, and Gabriel head to Provence, and what I love and hate is that Gabriel and Alfie are getting along so well. I hate it because I know that someone is going to be hurt and it’s going to be one of them. Upon arrival the three are supposed to head out to a lunch together, but as they are set to leave, Antoine makes it known that Alfie needs to stay. There is a problem at the perfume factory.
Alfie has already been having issues with Antoine, because he can’t stop him from spending money. TBH we kinda get Antoines reluctance to stop spending money, because he’s had a lot of it forever, so it’s the lifestyle he knows. But he also knows that he can’t keep doing it. However, how do you stop a man that has had everything in his life, no matter what. He’s lived off his charms.
Emily and Gabriel are having a great time at the lunch. The two of them have an amazing time, but when don’t they. These two have an ease with each other and I can respect that. I just feel at this point, everything has become so toxic and so all over the place. Each one of them has contributed to it, with the way that they have listened to everyone but themselves.
The thing is, both have not been honest and that lack of honesty has dragged everyone else in also. It’s spread a situation of a bunch of lies between all of these people that has changed everyones lives. I do get that everything isn’t on the up and up kind of thing, in anyones life. I do get that people keep secrets, because the reality is that sometimes secrets hurt.
And all of these secrets are hurting people.
All of the time.
When Gabriel talks to the chef, he mistakes them as a couple. And they correct him. But these two don’t seem to realize that they are giving this impression and not hiding feelings well.
Back at Antoine’s château, everyone is freaking out. Antoine’s perfume isn’t up to par and he’s talking about scratching it and starting over. This is insanely expensive, and he’s like being unreasonable. His wife and Alfie are trying to reason with him, but there is no reasoning with him.
Until of course, Emily gets inspired that he should make the perfume like the McLaren event. A perfume that is so exclusive that not everyone can have it, but everyone wants it. He doesn’t take her seriously at first, but when he does – things work out and everyone wants it.
Though I do love Emily, I sometimes wish that we would be able to see others have the big ideas. It feels like we’re not seeing the greatness of others and this show is having a bit of an issue developing other characters. I think that Julien and Luc should be heard more.
We are getting more of Sylvie, and her life, which I do love. She’s one of our favorite characters. We are loving her living her best life and then seeing her figure out that she really does just want to be with her husband and that he wants to be with her. She’s not seeing it yet, but we’re seeing it. It’s this beautiful thing that she’s been living her best life.
What the greatest thing about Sylvie is – in this writers opinion – is that she reminds you that there is nothing wrong with being strong. There is nothing wrong with exploring who you are and figuring out what you want.
She’s kinda inspirational AF.
Actually, not kinda… she is inspirational AF.
- Alfie getting frustrated with Antoine, we get it. But like also, when he gets to drive the McLaren back to Paris… it made me laugh how he changes.
- I really LOVE Alfie and Emily together
- Gabriel and his little looks at Emily… damn they make a cute couple.
