She had multiple reasons to be in love with him AND was in love with him knowing he's a loose cannon since day one (he ruins the effort to save his sister from the mob at the bar by reacting too soon the first time they met), and many instances since. Emily herself is an emotionally twisted person and she understand what it's like to be like Aiden. I'm not an Aiden/Emily shipper but I see the logic in their relnship. But ofc the writers are screwing with them to wedge in the blah, nonsensical irritation that is Jack + Emily.
Chuck Bass's father!!! LOL Deserves all those exclamation points, and then some :) I frankly can't even remember how Lydia died and if she was shown 'dead' on the show or what... but it's not important since these 'moonstones' keep coming and going :)
They were notes for Aiden who was moving in with Nolan. Nolan didn't want Aiden messing up his art and stuff since Aiden is more reckless and 'guy-like' than the artistic Nolan who takes a lot of care of his delicate collectibles.
Everyone doesn't always have to do 'likeable' or 'honourable' things. Jenna is going through 'normal' stuff, not 'angelic virginal young heroine' stuff. She's real, and that's not always pretty. It's a pity everyone seems to want their hero or heroine to be either this way or that way, without shades of gray. I like Awkward more right now because this can - and DOES - happen to people, and it's not easy to just come out and tell your b/f that you've been cheating on him because there are serious consequences to that, which is terrifying not only when you're teen but also to people in their fifties, sixties, whatever. I'm not condoning Jenna's cheating. But shows need to show what happens in real life, not in perfect little stories.
PS I'm not defending Aiden's ratting out Jack today out of jealousy. But that's just part of the writers trying cheap tricks to knock out Daniel and Aiden, the more rational, viable choices for Emily, to pave the way for the completely unbelievable happily-ever-after with Jack.
...knowing full well that his parents are constantly creating trouble for both him and Charlotte. Second, it'd have been far more compelling if the show tried to show a genuine relnship of love and conflict b/w Daniel and Emily given that he's a Grayson but one that is trying to do some things right, rather than this trite BS of 'childhood sweethearts' with Jack who she has LITERALLY nothing in common with. That's not how real life works, where adults need no greater reason to 'love each other eternally'. Aiden, for all his recklessness, is a better option for Emily than Jack, because he KNOWS the most about her, and cares deeply about her for who she is RIGHT NOW, not who she was when she was five. This 'endgame' nonsense is like fanfic writing. The Jack storyline is the weakest link of this series.
I don't think Daniel is misogynistic. He LOVES Emily. He doesn't know her HUGE secret and HER (misplaced) hate for him. He loves "Emily" for who she pretends to be with him. He paid off the cop on behalf of the Graysons. There WAS no statement given, of any sort, it was all fudged by the cops. So there's no question of him over-running Emily's authority. He doesn't underestimate her intelligence or capabilities, he acknowledges them even in this episode. As for the alarm system. I'm married, and I'd not think my husband was 'misogynistic' if he installed an alarm system in our house to protect US from someone. Daniel & Emily aren't married yet, but that's technicality since they're engaged and living together. It's not a decision that requires a round-table conference and it was done for THEIR benefit. Emily is a full-blown hypocrite because she's ready to KILL people to avenge her father, but she's got the highest moral ground about Daniel trying to defend his reckless family, knowing full well that his parents are constantly creating trouble for both him and Charlotte.
