And yet... Howard is one of my favorite characters. I love how stiff and repressed he is. Time passed him by and he got old before he knew it. The restaurant biz can do that to a person -- also it sucks your soul so there is that. Howard is now a soulless middle aged man still working in the restaurant that was originally only supposed to be a "temporary gig" while he honed his acting skills.
Anywho.. I pretty much like all the characters on this show. I have made it a point to watch it when it's on.
Because he doesn't want her. I think it's as simple and as complicated as that.
But it obviously still generates enough money (profit) to have it renewed for 2 more seasons. ABC is a business. Period. The bottom line is all that counts. And most businesses that I know of do NOT self sabotage/self implode themselves. It's not good for the bottom line aka profits.
I interpreted that as Lyn listening to what Johnnie's perfect day would be and realizing in that moment that they have no interests in common.
and THEN he gets the text that the baby is coming. I think Lyn wants to forget that Johnnie has other people in his life and other obligations that aren't HER.
Half the characters I adore on television I would HATE IRL. I LOVE dramatic hot messes as characters. I love to watch them rail and moan and be all dramatic and basically do things and behave in a way that IRL would be unacceptable. I love Lyn because she is chaos personified. In true life-- I would NOT associate with such a person - Haha!
I make no apologies. I love EP and I love that she is outspoken. I know! How dare *gasp!* a woman and the lead of the show no less -- tell it like it is behind the scenes.??? How dare she!
Ellen has been there since the beginning and she can certainly tell us a thing or two what it was really like in the early years. As well as now. I like that she and Shonda decided to take matters into their own hands and make things (the work environment) a more welcoming place to be.
And let us not forget some of the shenanigans that have taken place over the years (from IW to KH etc-- the most recent being Patrick Dempsey.) He and his wife split-- rumors of his infidelity were all over the news. EP and Dempsey's wife were/are friends in real life and the fact that she stated that she hasn't spoken to him since 2015 ??? hm? I wonder why?
I am thinking Ellen Pompeo knows a lot of little secrets/gossip/actual events that have happened behind the scenes over the years. If she should ever write a tell-all book--- I would so read that shit!
THAT^^^^ explained a lot to me about the character. She has obviously drifted from guy to guy but never finding anyone to love (except Johnie)
She has a history of being a "kept woman" << I got that from the story Lyn told about the ex boyfriend Juniper packing her stuff and taking away her credit cards--- which leads her to stealing her mother's CC and charging up thousands in debt. She has obviously never had a real job or has never had to pay her own way.
The bartender woman's name is Nico and she is a great complex character in the little we have seen her.
Yes! Mi familia in Mesa speaks just like that!
Glad to hear the show was renewed. I did a marathon watch of season 1 then season 2. Loved every moment. Emma is uptight and repressed and GOD! I love her in every way. She is in charge of her own sexuality and it is so refreshing to see. I liked that that dude she was fucking and treating like a sex object spoke up and said --- ummm no! (I can NOT for the life of me remember his character name-- the carpenter dude) anyway then Emma goes to his house to apologize and the old Mama makes her stay and eat! haha!
Lyn(da) is my favorite. She is a hot mess and those are usually my favorite types of characters. She is beautiful to look upon and totally messed up in the head. I love her and Johnnie. He is beautiful and she is beautiful and together they make a beautiful messed up couple. My kind of television.
Emma has been called out a couple times on why she wants to save the bar if she hates it so much. She finally admitted that she loves the bar. She learned to walk on those floors. She danced with her mama on those floors.
Their poppy is alive! What? Didn't see that happening!
I guess I stand alone but I don't find Mere and Deluca vile. I think they are kind of cute. But I only see them as a fling -- at least for Mere. I do not see them as long term nor do I see them as "end game" whatever the hell that means.
I agree about Maggie. Oh and Jo too. I can't stand her character and lately I can't even watch her.
Of course she did. But then he packed up her shit and asked her to leave. He doesn't want her. He is now with new blond chicky. Like she said -- she can't compete.
IMO Lyn wants to be wanted -- she loves to be loved.
I loved that scene at the bakery with Lyn batting her eyelashes and acting all pretty girl to get what she wanted. She has power in her beauty!
And I think she is pining for ex boyfriend not because she misses him or likes him or even wants him back -- it's that he doesn't want her. <<< that to Lyn is the sin of all sins!
Oh? I didn't see it that way -- but I usually don't think in those terms when watching television. I watch certain things because they entertain me. Or... I turn the channel.
I love that fact that both sisters own their sexuality and are unapologetic about it. And if there was any "objectifying" going on it was from ME! LOL (sorry couldn't help myself.)
I just discovered this show last week...?? anyway I did a whole marathon watch on Saturday of the first season (only six eps?) and then last night watched the entire second season (minus the last two eps which I will watch tonight)
anywho... LOVING IT! Wow!!!! Emma! my girl! I love her no nonsense uptight thing she's got going on. and Lyn-- girl! She and Johnnie are my new "power couple" meaning -- they got MAD chemistry!
Love the Spanglish.--- reminds me of home (Mesa AZ) I miss habla-ing with mi amigos en la Spanglish. Oh my gatos!
