SLiDE Wrap-Up: Episode 8
In Episode 8, Ed found his dream girl and his dream car, but let's talk about what happened next! If you haven't seen the episode, watch it before you read any further. Spoilers below!
While I love Ed's bright yellow car (My car is yellow, too.), I understand that he can't take his dream girl to a fancy dance in a car that reeks. (My car, just for the record, smells nice.) While Ed's plan to break into the mall and cheat at winning the car was pretty sketchy, I loved how he urged his friends to help out for the sake of "future Ed and his stupidly hot wife." Haha. That's a pretty good argument. :)
I am NOT cool with the fact that Ed lied to Phillipa to get her to help, though. She may be dorky and annoying, but um... lots of people are. (*raises hand*) Ed treated her terribly in this episode. When he said that, as an old man, he'd look back on their "filthy treehouse scramble" and regret it, I felt like I was watching her heart break before my eyes. Painful stuff.
After everything Ed put Phillipa through, I think he deserved seeing that same "filthy treehouse scramble" on a giant TV at the mall, but of course, Tammy saw it, too. Tammy, Tammy, Tammy... You can do so much better than Ed! Let's cross our fingers and hope that instead of lowering her standards, Tammy finds someone who lives up to them.
Isn't this a great group photo? I love these kids. I'm going to miss them when SLiDE is over.
BTW, my favorite moment from tonight's episode was when Eva talked to her dad about being adopted, and she said, "Bet you sometimes wish you picked a different crib."
He replied, "We didn't get a choice. We just got lucky." Yup, I totally teared up at that.
Did you have any favorite moments from this episode? Let me know in the comments.
