  1. Obviously they'd never kill off Nate, but having him recover with superficial head wounds and driving in less than one episode is hilarious. Skins more or less did the exact same arc with Tony and it took him the whole season to recover! So Cassie is the love of Nate's life after one hook up? Violent jock womanizer Nate secretly dreams of domesticity and babies at 17? Sure...Jacob Elordi said in the post-show interview how weird those scenes were to film because he had to be nice, lol. That scene in Fez' store was incredibly tense and well acted. Though it's a clear non-starter,
  2. Fez's and Lexi's actors have amazing chemistry. An interesting and unexpected pairing, but I love it. I thought they were going to have Lexi start crushing on Rue, but I like this way better. Angus Cloud brings such gentle sincerity to a hard character. He's one of my faves. Cassie just can't catch a break.
  3. Again, as a disabled woman, I'm excited by Alina's inclusion in the cast, but using her and Caleb's relationship to portray every single aspect of ableism and disability + sex is very performative and giving me whiplash. The producers' narrative makes zero sense. Two episodes ago, they wanted us to believe he wasn't attracted to her - now he's dicking her down on command? And their bizarrely lingering 5 minute soft core porn scenes feel like really disingenuous producer virtue signaling, as if they want. social justice points for showing (really showing) disabled sex. No one else has those sce
  4. As a disabled woman myself, I think they're actually together and probably a loving couple, but the producers gave them a script like David/Annie and Libby/Andre. Putting them in an inaccessible hotel is a plot to sensationalize her dependence and exaggerate her disability. Claiming "Caleb booked it" and having Caleb initially friendzone her (supposedly...really unnaturally) is just a ploy to rile the audience up against Caleb's ignorance and encourage them to pity "poor disabled girl" Alana by painting her as at best lovesick and at worst woefully unaware of her "unattractiveness" (read: havi
  5. I don't really care about the Ronald Wolf Pack or Dollar Store Stranger Things B-plots, but I have to admit watching the two girls fall in love is very wholesome. I briefly thought initially that Lindor and Jeri would turn romantic because of how much time they were spending together, but then they introduced his (somewhat forced imo) thing for Cassie and I figured as a trans woman in primetime, Jeri would be relegated to the asexual sidekick role. As such, it was interesting to see the writers go meta and have Lindor get closer to Jeri for the sake of mining her for Cassie info, unintent
  6. I’m so embarrassed that I ever liked Johnny. This goes way beyond being a garden-variety fuck boy or refusing to try because you feel entitled to a supermodel (hi Ryan). It’s way past just feeling awkward or looking for an exit because you were matched with someone that you already friend zoned. This man has deep-seated issues on par with Jose and Michaela. The fact that he immediately goes red and his vein pops out whenever Bao does something he doesn’t like is scary. Similarly, the fact that he randomly yelled in anger in the back bedroom by himself is not only overdramatic and a huge overre
  7. This episode made me think about how Twitter was yelling for Abigail to be the Bachelorette after Matt's season, only for her to have the personality of burnt toast on BiP. Producers even teed her up for the engagement arc of the season if she wanted it, only for her and Noah to sulk on the beach like bored teens all season. She doesn't seem to be emotionally available at all. She showed more emotion about 80s prom than anything Noah has said or done. Her blank, silent stare into space after Noah said he was falling in love with her was bizarre. You could tell by the way he was crying during h
  8. I think Johnny was referencing Bao's tendency to slip into baby voice or her general little girl affect during romantic/flirtatious moments. A lot of women do it, even unconsciously, because a bewildering number of men are bizarrely into it and reaffirm that behavior. I'm with Johnny on (only) this - that shit is weird and screams emotional immaturity, not to mention killing any potential sexual tension. And if the producers went out of their way to make a montage of it, it's clearly a frequent habit of hers. I'm willing to bet he still sees her as that "nerd girl" and continues to per
  9. I know y'all aren't Myrla fans, but her convo with Gil about "Spongebob eyelashes" was hilarious. Jose's anxiety around masculinity and needing to be perceived as the pinnacle of a traditional husband would be exhausting. Michaela...you're mad that Zach doesn't want to expose you to COVID? And she spent the rest of the time stamping her foot instead of being concerned for him. Instead of pouting that they can't fuck the rest of the honeymoon (because you know that's why she was moping), I would be glad I didn't get COVID from having sex two days before. And hanging out with the othe
  10. I wish Korey had kept the money for himself. He's such a good, genuine person. Jeremy's love for him also shone through, lol. I take back my dislike of Charlie/Alana. Though I personally find Charlie to be a snoozefest, they seem like a super normal, down-to-earth couple without much ego or self-absorption. They have the best chance of making it outside. Bailey is a lovely person! I doubt Jeremy will want to do long distance, but he was very sweet to her. It's very ironic that last season was more entertaining on a hotel rooftop than this season in Hawaii. The personalities tha
  11. You can't "write in" votes haha, I wish! The only options are sadly official couples. That would be hilarious if they won via write-in.
  12. That made me laugh! The entertainers were lovely, but Charlie/Alana and Jeremy/Bailey's dates screamed high school after prom by comparison. Especially given that just days ago (on another elaborate date and perfect opportunity), Will droned on about how he didn't want to label anything. Korey/Jeremy had the most chemistry out of anyone, lol. Even if Korey's obsession with Jeremy is odd, given Jeremy has stolen his girl *multiple* times! Talk about masochism. I'm at peace with Jeremy probably winning? Who have I become? He has more personality than I gave him credit for and B
  13. Well, at least Alice is finally in the middle of a triangle? Her and Sumi have good chemistry, but I'm tired of constant Alice/Lindsay tension. Sumi's outfit was amazing! I also find Malika's dynamic with Deonte's girlfriend odd. Their scenes are uncomfortable. Half the time it's like a boss talking to an intern and the rest of the time I'm convinced they're going to make out. I wonder if they're laying the groundwork for a throuple. I think Davia/Dennis have kissed more in fantasy sequences (like once an ep!) than in reality. Still, watching Dennis randomly kiss Isabella was interes
  14. They did! According to social media (so large grain of salt), he had a girlfriend the whole time he was on the show , presumably a big factor in their eventual breakup.
  15. Well, that was bullshit. Producers essentially made the cast vote on "compatibility" to ensure that Trina and Andre wouldn't win as a friendship couple. But stone-faced Charlie and Alana are the picture of romantic potential. Yeah. Andre really shot himself in the foot by explicitly friendzoning Trina at every opportunity. If he had been smart, he would've kissed her for a week, won the money, and walked away. He didn't even try. If Caleb could scam his way to 50k by pretending to fall in love with Justine all season while having a girlfriend at home, Andre could pretend to be into Trina
