Stressy Times for Holly J!
Yikes. The amount that Holly J is going through in the span of a couple days is stressing me out -- and I'm just sitting there with my dog and a bowl of pistachios watching! Can't imagine what it would be like for a real-life HJ.
Holly J, stressing the hell out. Justifiably.
It was so crazy seeing her birth mom tonight... but even crazier thinking about her trying to digest 1) a potentially fatal diagnosis 2) a completely earth-shattering revelation and 3) a supersuper awkward meeting with the stranger you LIVED IN for nine months, all in the course of a week!
I was personally kind of shocked that her parents wanted to wait until she was 18 to tell her... that seems a lot older than my real-life adopted friends were when they found out. If you were adopted or have a friend who was, when did your/their parents reveal it?
Anyway, what do you think of Holly J's birth mom... and her $20,000 request?
I hope that's not what stands between HJ and life because we need her to graduate and change the world! Even if @degrassitextfam thinks she should get held back to hang out with Fiona. Which would undoubtedly be more fun for us, but we must be strong and noble and selfless -- we must think of Holly J and what's best for her.
PS: Can't say I'm Imogen's biggest fan in terms of her influence on Eli but, just on a sisterfriend level: that "We're not together" scene? OUCH! What happened to whisper-whisper-tee-hee-hee on the bench, Eli? The signals! They are mixed at best!
