Not a fan of Grace’s brothers.
I actually like the story about Holly and Nathan as Nathan struggles with his feelings for Holly, no doubt feeling guilty about falling for someone else so soon after his girlfriend’s death. And is it really a shock that Holly is actually pursuing Nathan while hiding the fact that she is responsible for Rachel’s death? Holly has always been selfish about her relationships so it’s pretty in character, IMO. This is the girl that was banging twin brothers at the same time. And Nathan is hot.
That was an interesting scheme of Harry’s to get his father his job back without having to sleep with James, but it doesn’t make much sense. James lives in the village. He’s in the police station all the time. No one in town wouldn’t look at that picture and think it was him? If that were to happen, Harry’s plan would fall apart, you know?
Is all this leading to the dark storyline for Aaron the show talked about awhile back? I sure hope so. The show needs to find something interesting to do with Aaron other than having him find a new career every other week.
As for Nate’s exit, I don’t understand why he was brought back. He and Aaron were done and Aaron had moved on. Instead they brought Nate back, he had a quick reunion with Aaron followed by a lame breakup with Nate deciding to go back into the army in about 4 brief scenes. I think it might be the fastest exit ‘story’ I’ve seen for this show.
I did like how Aaron’s refusal to go was because he still didn’t trust Nate not to walk out on him again. That made sense, even though much of their relationship did not. I can’t say I’ll miss Nate because I won’t. He never quite fit on this show. Still, I do appreciate this show keeping gays on the canvas, even if they don’t always do a great job with them.
I really don’t like Lari right now. Why is he using Kalle like this? Kalle doesn’t deserve that at all. It’s just cruel to do this to Kalle. And Lari has never been a cruel person. It’s actually kind of out of character. Overall, the writing for this really doesn’t jibe what we’ve watched for the past two years. Lari’s revived feelings for Elias frankly came out of nowhere. Now he’s treating Kalle like the second choice rebound guy when a few weeks ago Lari was totally committed to Kalle without a thought to Elias.
Janne is right about one thing though: Lari and Elias were miserable together and they made everybody else miserable too. Then again, he was wrong about Lari and Kalle too. They never had an easy relationship, not from the start. I just think the show is re-writing these relationships to fit the story they are telling now rather than what actually happened.
For me, it sure doesn’t make me root for Elias and Lari. Not that I ever did.
