Another week on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, another week of unresolved issues.
In "Interference" Amy misplaced her rings, causing a lot of tension in her already shaky relationship with fiancee Ricky. He was fired up and demanded they set aside a time to talk. Little did he know that Ben had creepily slipped Amy's rings in his pocket while she was sleeping!
The trouble with Amy and Ricky is that they both do a lot of talking, just never to each other. Take Ricky, for example: he spent the entire episode talking about his relationship with Amy but it was to George, Lauren and Madison. It was never to Amy.
Normally I rag on Madison and Lauren because their characters have always kind of sucked, but I was actually glad for once that they spoke to Ricky. I felt really bad for him when he admitted "I don't even know if she likes me." That should never be a sentence you utter about someone you are in a relationship with! While I feel bad for Ricky as we watch him do whatever he can to make things work, maybe he should also think about if he really wants to get married.
Ricky said he doesn't even know what it means to be in love. He loves Amy and isn't that enough? I don't know, Ricky, is it? Apparently it was enough for Amy to overhear, rush in all loving, and ask to set a wedding date. She wants to set a date, but she still hasn't decided about New York.
What do you think of Ben's comment about how Amy finally seems like herself again? What does that even mean? She's only 18, people change. It's fun that Ben has a sister in Chloe now, I enjoy their conversations. Although he did put his foot in his mouth when he asked her about dating. Then again, shouldn't he treat her like a regular teenager who deserves to date and find a boyfriend if she wants one?
Adrian and Omar seemed to be the couple making the most strides in making things work. Adrian said it was something they should work out together. I understand her hesitance. She wants her own identity.
If I'm just your live-in girlfriend trying to get into college while you have this big important job then I don't think you're gonna be so proud of me. And I'm not gonna be so proud of me. | permalink
Adrian should've stayed the mature course and not gone behind Omar's back to his mother. The same way Jack's mother shouldn't have threatened Grace. Pam from True Blood, did have a point though, Grace hasn't always been the best girlfriend. She was always very fickle.
Kathy and Ethan's storyline was pointless and Danica McKellar's guest starring role was also useless. Let's keep focusing on the original characters as we enjoy the final run of The Secret Life of the American Teenager. What did you think of this week's episode?
