Well, this episode was a long time coming. The Intervention. Talk about some heavy stuff in that first hour. Man, when Amelia lashed out and went after everyone, insulting them all and bringing out all their “faults”…That was the hardest to watch. Can’t believe she even shot up in front of everyone. Much props to Caterina Scorsone…she did a great job with this episode! That’s some heavy duty stuff that
Altho it seemed like Ryan was actually a GOOD influence on Amelia…He WAS the one to decide that they should get sober…I think him overdosing & dying was really the “nail in the coffin” for Amelia. It’s what finally made her realize that she needed to get help. So Ryan ended up having to sacrifice his own life to save hers. But it worked!
I thought the scene with Amelia in the detox room with the young girl was very moving. It was actually very touching…showed a lot of maturity on Amelia’s part. So happy she finally got clean! Let’s just hope it sticks…
I admired Violet so much in this episode. How she handled her relationship with Pete. For her to finally be the one to say Since I know you won’t do it/can’t do it, I will leave you if that’s what you want. So I guess that’s it? Their relationship is over? I actually do think it’s the right thing tho. They’re both so unhappy…it’s not good for Lucas for his parents to just be staying together but not even relating to each other anymore. Pretty sad tho considering how much they’ve been through together. But right now, it’s for the best.
Ah…so Jake’s ex was an addict. I guess finding that out is supposed to give us more insight into his character…make us feel for him a little more. Eh. I didn’t. When he was there at the beginning of the intervention, I have to say I felt the same way Amelia did — Jake barely KNOWS Amelia. Seems awkward that he was there. How can he be talking to her when he doesn’t even know her? It was weird. Guess that’s why he left.
I love seeing Charlotte with Mason. She’s so cute with him. Altho it must be SO HARD for her to have to just suck it up and be so friendly and happy while knowing it’s not her ideal situation right now.
So the final question is: Is Addison pregnant? I think she is. And while I know having a baby is Addison’s dream, I still feel like if she does, it’ll change her character and change the whole dynamic/mood of the show. Which I don’t want. But we’ll see…
