We have yet to see Caitlyn's dark side but she's David Lee's niece. There has to be one. Also, she moved up the ladder pretty fast. I wanted to slap Alicia a bit, she was totally turned on by Peter being the Keynote Speaker. I understand her reasons for not wanting to publicly damage Peter with a divorce but the guy's bad news. Although I did feel a little bad for him, he had to make a tough call this episode. Will's sisters are HILARIOUS. I loved how they went after Kalinda as Will's girlfriend. If they had guessed it was Alicia, that would have been awkward but with Kalinda, it was super funny. Diane is the best. I love her.
Melody put Bay in a shitty position. She could have gotten plenty of evidence against Cameron based on Emmett's attendance and grades. It was MASSIVELY inappropriate to do that to Bay. Once again, I'm underwhelmed by Kathryn's spinelessness. For a moment there she was about to kick some ass when she found that Melody was trying to use Bay and then she hears her sob story and relents. Her daughter was put in a horrible position by a woman that until recently had treated Bay like crap. I would have flat out said no. To either Daphne or Bay being involved. As for Simone and Emmett. Shame on both of them. Especially Emmett. I get that he was angry at his mother and Bay but come one. He looked at Simone with the intention of getting to her room. There was nothing accidental about that look.
I dont think Simone called in the complaint about Daphne. Another girl confessed to it while they were on the court...And why did Simone feel the need to trip Daphne with two seconds remaining? I think she did it on purpose. While I think Simone is in the wrong a lot, I don't think she was the evil presence in the ep. Gallery guy bugs me. He's pushy. I don't like him. He's like "I'm cute and charming, I can get away with being intrusive". Ugh. As for Emmett, I think Bay needed to stay out of it. Take it from someone who has been in the middle of a 14 year old feud between two divorced parents. If you can stay out of it, stay out of it. The one thing I agree with is Bay talking to Cameron, ironically, that's the part that Emmett was the most angry about. Cameron needed to know what Olivia was doing under his roof with his kid in the house. The pot smoking never bothered me, but dealing is a whole other story.
I think the idea was that Karma's a bitch and that what Barney did to other women is coming back to bite him in ass.
Here's my opinion, either have Dan and Blair together for good or break them up next ep. The lack of heat in the bedroom is realistic excuse. But to have them overcome that and then break up, that seems like you are just trying carry on a popular romance with no intention of having them wind up together. How many times does it have to be hinted that Dair will eventually break up? I can't invest time in a couple if there is no possibility of a long term attachment.
Oh, one more thing about the law case. Their lawyer is an idiot. Blame the money exchange on Angelo. That way the Kenish family is cleared at least. It's lying but what else are you going to do?
Simone is a very realistic character. She's the cute, spoiled rich girl that won't shut up and won't go away. Toby takes after Katharine, he's too sweet sometimes. But I don't think he'll put up with Simone for too much longer. She's lied to him twice now. The more she get's away with it, the more she'll do it until Toby finally can't take anymore. It'll fun to see her not get what she wants for a change. I predict that she won't handle it well.
While I think Wilkie likes Daphne a lot and is very caring towards her, I don't think he's ready for the challenges of having a deaf girlfriend, even if Daphne is highly functional. I think he forgets that she's deaf and doesn't take learning to sign seriously at all. Daphne's doing all the work and I think she knows it. As for Travis, I can understand his anger. I'm glad John gave him a second chance but if he doesn't start being a little nicer to Daphne, who has bent over backwards to help him, I may not root for him in the future. I'm a little disapointed in the writers here, it's obvious they are setting him up to be a love interest for Daphne. It's too obvious.
I understand that Katharine had a bleeding heart for the nurse but to pay her a lot of money suddenly would look extremely bad. Also, while John is overbearing, it's still not good to lie to your husband. I can see why he'd be upset. Katharine is kind of fucking things up a bit. She should go back to her book because she's a feelings person, not a business type. Also, there's weird sparks flying between her and the young, eager lawyer. No, Kathy, don't do it! He's not even a very good lawyer, you won't get anything in the divorce :p
I'm glad they brought up Ty, he left suddenly because the actor was signed to another show but there would still be issues there. Bay never really had much closure there and I felt like she got it tonight. She's also proven once again how brave she is, that's a difficult conversation for an adult never mind a kid. And I think she knew that she had let the situation go on for too long, she needed to tell Ty that she had moved on. It shows a lot of maturity but in a realistic manner, no cheesy after school special. Emmett is so insecure right now. His family just broke up, he feels like his whole life is falling apart and that he can't be sure of anything anymore. His parents' divorce have left him with serious trust issues and naturally he's taking it out on Bay. But to expect that Bay never had feelings for Ty which is exactly how a boy would feel about the first girl he's ever loved.
