Sympathy for Bianca and Anya?

Posted on Jul 21, 2011 by Mary


So, starting off with some of your reactions to the Ownya hook-up from last night:

"I personallly think Owen is kind of hot, but he is such a pig. So this can go many ways." - TEENTITAN6

"I actually like Owen. I mean he seems like a nice guy, but he puts all his nasty on the outside." - AIYA222

That's actually a really good way to put it Aiya222 -- and it's probably true of all bullies, mean girls, etc.. They "put their nasty on the outside" to protect their vulnerable spots on the inside. But... I still can't stomach the fact that he threw Zane in a dumpster, threw Adam through a glass door, and probably defaced Riley's locker. Until he owns up to the wrongness of that stuff, he's on my bad side -- tender wounded inner child or no.

Mostly, I'm really feeling for Anya in this whole situation. Your best friends are basically gossiping about you, you make a stupid facebook (sorry; facerange) move because you're too flustered to think, you're still reeling from having no post-high school destination and rejection from a great guy, and your consolation prize guy utters such sweet nothings as: "You're not too good for me, Anya." Yowwwch. Crappy sitch for Anya all around.

Speaking of crappy sitches: My Bianca sympathy meter went through the ROOF on this ep. Of course, I still don't forget what she did to Adam either. But I think her wounded inner child is on full display. When Drew dumped her... oh my God! You could see her struggling to keep a brave face and being so eerily good at it... like it's a skill she's perfected.

And so sad that Drew thought this would mean a fresh start. That didn't seem to turn out so well.

Actually, question: Do you blame Bianca for what happened to Drew?
