First off, I just have to say that it’s one thing for Taylor to keep bringing up the whole, “I was Nathan’s first” comment, but to hook up with David was, like Haley said, “whorish.” Of course, David is more at fault for trying to get back at Quinn…
With that said, I also feel for Taylor. She’s a mess. She’s a crazy mess that either doesn’t know what she wants, or doesn't know how to get what she wants. She has no idea what’s good or bad for her, and I think it just sucks being her sometimes when her sisters’ appear to be better off with life.
She keeps reminding Naley that she was Nathan’s first – I don’t think to piss them off, but I think as a reminder to her that she, supposedly, could have had a chance with a great guy like Nathan if she wanted to (even though we all know she couldn’t.) And with David, I honestly, somewhere way down at the pit of my guts, think that she actually just wanted that “perfect” someone for her – because she probably viewed her sisters’ marriages as successful and with great guys. So if Quinn didn’t want to be with a great guy, why couldn’t she be with him……I know – it’s a crazy theory – but after the sisters’ conversation after the water fight – I’m convinced, somewhat, that Taylor isn’t just a crazy person who just wants to ruin everyone’s lives.
But of course, my favorite scenes were all of Naley’s! This week’s episode brought back the side of Haley that we haven’t seen since high school. She was a total goofball (even though I’m sure that wasn’t what she was aiming for.) It’s easy to tell that she’s the baby of the family. Haley has always, for the most part, been the more mature figure in the family, but it was nice this week to see Nathan taking on the mature role and trying to calm down a stubborn headed Haley. It shows their equal partnership.
The whole Millicent issue needs to be resolved – seriously, She was a wreak for what, a week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks tops? She’s acting like it’s the end of the world. She needs to pick herself back up and realize that she still has a life to live and that people are behind her. I’m glad Mouth came back for her, but I hope she’s going to be worth it.
Brooke’s story just breaks my heart! It seems as if the writers are just waiting to write more painful events to her life; it’s bad news after bad news for Brooke. I really do hope that Julian doesn’t fall for Alex – that would be just too typical. I know Alex is trying her best to not get in the way of Brooke and Julian – but she needs to try harder.
