Well, you want to open up with Jesse and Meredith, I want to vomit. Ellen is very proud to show off her brother and the fact that he’s on television – which is a great thing to be proud of. Everyone else can see the issues and how fake it all is.
Sid and Jesse are still fighting. It’s bothering Sid, but he’s trying to act like its not. So as the rest of the group is ready to head out to Long Island to see Jesse play (and well, the evil that is Meredith), Sid realizes that he’s going to be alone.
He doesn’t do good alone.
I don’t think that I will ever be able to hate on Sid for not knowing how to be alone. The reason being is that a lot of us don’t know how to be alone. Me, I am an expert, but most are not.
We quickly learn that Sid is really bad at it. Horrible at it. He doesn’t know how to deal with it, but TBH, I think that it’s mostly because he misses his best friend.
And missing your other half can be a lot.
TIME WITH THE PARENTS
Since Sophie and Val are heading to Long Island they are heading to see Vals parents. Val doesn’t love going home because her parents are always trying to set her up with someone. She’s just not ready for the relationship that they have.
Sophie LOVES Val’s parents. They are a little much, but they are in love. Everything to them is all about the art of the sale.
And they are always trying to sell something, including their daughter on relationships. But since they can’t, they decide that they are going to set up Sophie. They know Val well enough that she’s going to be like why not me.
Val likes being the center of attention and hey, I find no shame in that. It’s who some people are.
Sophie has always wanted parents like Val has. So for them to pay her compliments or for them to want to set her up with anyone – she’s happy. She’s not happy that Val tries to get the attention and Oscar for herself.
But it turns out that Vals parents were trying to create a competitive situation, so Val and Sophie decide to turn the tables on them. They even bring Oscar in on the situation. They make it so convincing that Vals parents freak out and tell them what they’ve done.
They didn’t believe that Charlie was real and like all parents they want more for their baby girl. I can’t believe that they thought she was making up a man, but like also – oy.
What I loved about this whole part of the story is that we’re seeing that there are many different sides to a story and a way of living. There is no time line that anyone needs to follow. I think that in life we all get wrapped up in thinking that there is just that.
That following some timeline is something that we have to do. People can always want the best for any of us, but it’s up to us to find our way. Val and Sophie have a bunch of issues, but please tell me any of us that don’t.
They’ve got each other for now, but they will definitely find their own way.
MEREDITH IS HORRIBLE
We all know that I hate Meredith. She’s obviously using Jesse and doesn’t give a fuck about him. Granted, she’ll claim that she does, but it’s also like Meredith, we’re not buying it.
You can see that Jesse is unhappy and his heart is hurting. He also doesn’t want to admit that at all. Friendship arguments are the worst. That thin line of how do I please them and please everyone else? What do I do to make everyone happy?
And that line of even if my friends don’t agree with me, don’t they owe me the grace of just supporting me no matter what they think? Life is too short for anything else, right?
The reality is that Meredith is using Jesse for her social media and for a PR stunt. Jesse just wants to love someone. He wants to feel something and have something work out. It’s hard for him because he doesn’t want to admit that he is wrong. He doesn’t want to admit that he gave up everything for someone who really doesn’t love him.
It’s kinda crazy how we, as human beings, are willing to go to such big extents to prove that we weren’t wrong, even when we know we are.
It takes Meredith wanting to use the most painful moment in Jesse’s life – her rejection of his proposal – for Jesse to see he deserves better. He walks out on her.
I’m thankful for that moment. Thankful that once again, we get to see all the friends back together, there for each other.
- Charlie is not to be underestimated
- Meredith is evil
- Finally we got to see Ellen not be a joke, that was a good thing.
- Sid and Jesse making up is perfection.
- Also again, Meredith is evil
