Season 2 Episode 7 of Awkward, “Another One Bites the Dust,”finally pulled the trigger on the Jenna-Matty-Jake triangle, and we could not be happier.
* * * * *
Finally! I have been enjoying this season of Awkward a lot, but I think it is safe to say we have all been waiting for this episode to happen since Jenna chose Jake over Matty at prom. At this point, I do not think there has been anything that could change anybody’s mind on whether they are Team Matty or Team Jake. As I have discussed, both have their pros and cons, meaning it simply comes down to personal taste. With this episode, however, we now get to see the playing field change up a little. Jake was all for accepting Jenna for who she was, but can he accept this? Matty has supposedly moved on, but will he really fight for and be honest with Jenna now that he has the opportunity like he said he would at the beginning of the season? In other words, we get to see if the guys can really live up to what they portray themselves as. I find that really interesting, and am looking forward to what comes from that storyline for the first time all season.
In other news, Sadie continues to prove she is still the H.B.I.C. Yeah her thing with Rickey has softened her a little, or as soft as Sadie can go, but it is still unwise to back her into a corner. Girl does not have claws, she has razors and will cut a bitch. Terrifying, just like the hairstyles she and the other girls had to sport. :Shudder: I think her situation with Rickey and Tamara is the most accurate portrayal of high school maybe ever? Who has not seen that scenario play out numerous times, dramatics and bitchiness included?
I also enjoyed the third love triangle tonight with Jenna’s mom, still-absent(?!) dad and Ben. Ally and Jenna’s mom talk about love was easily the most adult conversation this show has ever had, and I naturally enjoyed every muscle relaxer induced second of it. It is nice when the show acknowledges that these types of problems and themes truly do not get easier with age. Well done there.
Tonight was a really nice follow-up to last week, and it appears as if the show has really hit its stride this season.
Oh Val. That is all.
Matty and Jenna still get my vote. If Jenna needs to constantly remind herself of how good of guy and why she should be with Jake, which I think are good reasons, then the answer seems pretty clear to me what she really wants. Make your case in the comments section!
The Princess Leia truly needs to be mentioned twice, because wow, that was a bit much. As was Jenna’s flower bitch dress. As was Jenna’s title for that matter. Needless to say, I will be having flower bitches at my wedding.
Ally is fantastic, and should clearly move in with the Hamiltons.
I want a Ally and Sadie fight every week. My life would be complete.
