    S02.E10: Friendly Fire

    Following soap opera protocol, my assumption was that he 1) knew the canyon roads leading away from the house and 2) cut the brake lines. It's not like Coleman's car would blend in with others so Jeremy would know which car was his. Any basic accident forensic team would see what caused the accident but outsiders wouldn't have any idea as to who, on the 100+person set would have a motive. And shockingly, no one outside of the show's central characters seem to have any idea what really goes on, even though they are there day in/day out for all of it. Suffice it to say, I liked the episode. A little hammy with the two brides who willingly stood there with their complicit families just watching everything go down; but whatevs.

    S02.E09: Espionage

    If memory serves, Darius has done nothing this season that would make him villainous. He has been one of the only ones to consistently remember (and point out) that he is trying to rehab his image. You would think that would make him a sympathetic character; but this season's writing has been so chaotic that I've got nothing for him. I had more sympathy for Romeo (even BEFORE he was shot) as the throwaway cousin/manager then I do for Darius.

    I thought Chet coordinated the tackle? How can someone, in real life, seamlessly keep up with who is playing who as Rachel seems to do in this episode? RE: Madison - I am starting to like her awfulness

    Spoilers and Speculation Discussion

    My speculation for the finale is that an inebriated Jeremy learns who Yael is and that she used him for information for her expose and didn't actually care about him and he comes back to set to [fill-in-the-blank] threaten/menace others/kill himself/kill Rachel? And what if Coleman is the "friendly fire" who tries to talk some sense into Jeremy or even take a literal bullet for Rachel and this is the jaw-dropping moment? I still cannot figure where Yael's taking of Jeremy's truck keys comes into play.......what if Jeremy did NOT take his gun when he was fired and Yael finds it when Jeremy is on set wreaking havoc (again, my theory) and she shoots him with his own gun? Or Jeremy could be on-site with his gun (again, drunk and mad at Yael - my theory) and could accidentally shoot anyone - Romeo, Ruby- who came back to proclaim her love for Darius, Darius, Booth??? Thoughts?

    I agree there must be something more to the secret. If this IS Rachel's truth, then the writers of 'UnReal' have just told every victim of rape that they are damaged goods, unable to be loved, and unworthy of love----or at least through the eyes of the only "mother" on the show - the same person who also represents a psychiatric opinion on this show. So two areas where you would expect to be warmly supported if such an event were to happen to their child/patient and 'UnReal' has her reaction to be the exact opposite. Strange... I meant to acknowledge your previous post as well but forgot to do so - sorry! However, I had completely forgotten about the time jump until it was brought up in this episode's forum, which is why I thought I may have missed something. Who does such a close time jump without explanation?

    I watched the replay on Lifetime so I may have missed a TV notice but did the show ever reveal in the beginning that it was a 2-week jump from last week's show to this one? Or we were supposed to just magically infer that from Quinn's monologue about [in 'Everlasting' world, last week being a clip show] in the first 15 minutes of the show? Given this 2-week time jump, are we expected to believe that 4 competing girls just laid around a fairly empty (except for the alcohol) mansion for 2 weeks with no word from, no sight of, and no mention of Darius---the center of the show that they are on? Is the whole 'UnReal' concept just a social experiment to see who will hang on until the end?

    S02.E07: Ambush

    This entire season is really disjointed. If all of this has been done on purpose (I just have to assume that no group of people would be this careless with a sophomore season of an edgy show) then the season finale really must be a wowzer to tie it all together. RE: Adam and Rachel - they can definitely steam up the screen!

    Spoilers and Speculation Discussion

    In all of the spoiler interviews, everyone seems to remark how they aren't sure how/where you pick up after S2 finale. Is it too farfetched to think that S1 didn't exist either?

    Spoilers and Speculation Discussion

    If this season turns out to be a figment of Rachel's imagination, I will be blown away; BUT with several episodes left in the season, would they introduce this now? Seems like more of a season-finale reveal. Also, given the manner in which S1 and S2 developed; how would a S3 look? If you start over then you're basically starting where S1 started, which was at the end of a breakdown. If you trail off into Rachel's mental health issues, you lose the crux of what the first 2 seasons have been based on. While intriguing, it doesn't seem possible.

    I think this statement read differently than you may have meant it? All I meant is that the majority of these types of shows are like a prolonged spring break and he doesn't come across as anyone who has ever cut loose - he's very stiff for a man with any skin tone.

    I could do without long-haired Adam but good grief there was always some sizzling chemistry between he and Rachel. RE: Darius character - I am really not feeling his character as a whole. I don't know if it is how the character has been written, how the actor is playing him, or what but he almost seems wooden in EVERYTHING that he does. Maybe it's that his backstory isn't as developed but I don't think Adam's was either (I really can't remember). His character just seems misplaced- there is no way that a show like Everlasting would cast him as he doesn't have the personality that the Suitors typically have.

    Agreed. Also, it seems that the only thing that brings national attention is college football. HA! Not as attention-grabbing.

    When only Alabama is shown as a racially divided, segregation-wanting state, it is unfair. If Hollywood wants to cast judgement on the South as a whole, then there are many other states to choose from or lump us all together; but it is only Alabama [solely] that continues to be shown this way. No offense taken, seriously. Hell, I would rather Hollywood and the media focus on Alabama being full of corruption (because unfortunately it is). Anything other than presenting the state like we are still the same as we were 50 years ago. And since I wasn't a citizen of the world in those times, then I think I should be able to expect that 50 years later, I can watch a TV show about my state without seeing a bunch of racist rhetoric bandied about.

    This is my point, Alabama is never shown in any other light. This show proved no different with the exception of college football, which (as an Auburn fan) doesn't count) ;)
