From watching the episode’s preview prior to, I knew this week’s episode was going to be jam packed. So many things went on all at once; nothing clear or absolute could have been pulled from the preview. The preview did its job very well – it hooked the viewers and had us wanting more!
After watching the episode, did I come to learn that it was dedicated in loving memories of director/writer/producer John Hughes. And the randomness of the story plot? Each scene inspired by a famous work of Hughes. I absolutely give props to the writers of this week’s episode, as they took a handful of materials that were originally unrelated to the show and morphed it in.
So, with that said and placed at the back on your mind…let the bloggin’ begin!
With the craze that goes on in their lives, Nathan and Haley always seem to find time for each other. It is absolutely adorable that Nate has to get home for Haley’s birthday – no matter what, even if it means riding with pigs and walking in the cold dark forest for 200 miles.
“What did you wish for?”
“I’ve already gotten everything I’ve ever wanted.”
And while it’s television magic for Naley, Brooke and Julian still have some ways to go. I do wish though, that just for once, Brooke can be happy. She’s always the one that has to give something up because someone else wants it, or "claims" it. As a viewer and fan, it kills to see that they both love each other dearly, but can’t be together because of complications.
“It’s not going to be easy is it, us being friends?””
“No. But it’s better than not being in each other’s lives at all.”
This week’s episode introduced the new Alex that has been slowly sneaking up on us. The new Alex is not anything like the old Alex. She’s caring, understanding, smart, and respectful (towards others, as well as herself.) I hate to say it, but it seems like there is a chance that she could end up with Julian. I wouldn’t like it though; I’m 100% pro-Brulian. And apparently, as of this episode, so is Alex.
“Advice from one Alex to another: stay away from Brooke. They belong together.”
“How do you know?”
“She loves him. I know, because, I love him too.”
Overall, this week’s episode was, entertaining. I’m not sure if it’s just me who’s feeling this, but ever since we’ve returned from the long break, the show’s progress has been going a tad slower than it should.
The preview for next week’s episode, however, seems rather promising – new conflict and new drama. Haley and Quinn’s mom is back in town, and with her comes some bad news (from what the previews looks like.) Also back is their troublesome sister, Taylor. Millicent is also back on the show with her own problems, after her absence this week. I hope it’s a good episode, because I can’t take any more “slow” episodes.Chloe Nguyen is a sophomore at the University of Utah and an intern at KTVX/KUCW.
