I feel like now that things are out in the open he’s less likely to, but in the end who knows what direction they’re going to take this storyline now (we’ll probably get a better idea once that next Eli webisode comes out).
In terms of Eli still hiding things from Clare about Lenore, yes he is…he still hasn’t told Clare that Lenore is his roommate.
There’s 24 episodes left in the season so I’m counting on it! Actually I’d be quite annoyed if they didn’t address it before the end of the season.
The difference here is that you’re looking at what was said and what was done during their conversation, while my post was looking at what wasn’t said or done, which at times is equally as important. I’m not necessarily debating whether or not he cheated (again he very well could have, and we’ll find out next week), but I am questioning why was there no DIRECT mention of cheating within their conversation? Cheating is not the kind of thing that should just be assumed, even if signs point to it.
You have to wonder why the writers chose to make that specific conversation so intentionally vague, and that in itself brings the possibility of a “misdirection play” to the table, even if it turns out that Eli did indeed cheat.
Thanks to the person who posted this comment.
Eli could’ve very well cheated in some capacity, but this comment left on my blog brings up the possibility that he didn’t.
I’ve been sitting here watching the fallout scene on a loop for about 15 minutes. Eli clearly admits to something, but he never specifies what he was admitting to. He said “it happened once” because he was “miserable” and “filling a void.” Eli didn’t specifically come out and say that he cheated, and Clare didn’t specifically ask him if he had cheated.
The only theory outside of Eli cheating on Clare that would make sense is that he smoked weed or did drugs with Lenore (which is on top of the layer of fear Eli already has about telling Clare that Lenore is his roommate). The whole thing just takes me back to the time when Eli started his weed habit in Building A Mystery in season 12, and the angst he had thinking about being away from Clare.
If that’s so, then as stated above Clare wouldn’t find out the truth until after the Clew kiss happens.
I’m back!!! Well for a minute lol :-p
I will hate this show forever.
They have taken a complicated unique couple and reduced them to a cliche.
What kind of message does it send that they want us to root for a couple when one party cheated on the other? I don’t want them to be together if Eli slept with someone else, and I am one of…
It sucks when you have feelings for someone, but they either aren’t interested or have feelings for someone else. Depending on the day, it can be a blow to one’s self worth. You walk around asking the question, “Why them and not me? Why does everyone else get a chance, except for me?”
For me, it’s not the rejection that stings. It’s not like being in a relationship that gradually or suddenly falls apart…you suffer heartbreak, but at least you had a chance to do something even if you failed. For me it’s frustrating because I’m not given a chance to prove anything before the door is slammed in my face, as if they were trying to avoid a Jehovah’s witness at their doorstep. And honestly I don’t have the looks or bold type of personality to immediately catch people’s attention.
It’s reached a level far beyond being some guy who’s bitter toward the opposite sex. It’s as if the universe itself is openly mocking me, placing my love life (or lack thereof) in a “Groundhog Day” scenario…for forever it’s the same beginning, middle and end, just a different face each time. In hindsight (and now) I’m basically an emotional gap filler, playing that role until their prince charming comes along and sweeps them off their feet, and then I never hear from them again.
It’s my own fault. My tactics are pretty passive. I refuse to deviate from the idea that I want to become friends with a girl before dating her. I don’t want to just think someone’s cute, then dive in head first and figure things out as we go along. I want a strong friendship that serves as the foundation for a relationship. I want to spend time getting to know who you are and how your life experiences, good and bad, have shaped you. I don’t want the desire of sticking our tongues down each other’s throats to cloud our judgement in the beginning.
The problem is that method isn’t really ideal nowadays. We’re all too impatient. If I’m not throwing myself at a girl like you’d expect a guy to then the girl assumes I’m not interested. And if I’m not aggressive enough, it gives time for a guy who is to slip in and steal her away, which is what happens most of the time.
When rejection happens nowadays I don’t walk around like a kid whose puppy died, I just become annoyed because failure in this part of my life has become too predictable. I’d like to think that as I go through life, there’s a Power much higher than myself guiding my path, and that everything indeed happens for a reason. Even if it sucks and I can’t see why it’s happening, regardless of how amazing I believe any girl is, I guess I have to believe that ultimately the G-man is dodging the bullets for me that I’m too weak to dodge myself. But will there ever come a time where the right one ever come along?
My roommate thought it was a real horse.
i have to admit so did i for a second there
Yep. Hopefully Zig and Zoë getting together will be because they really like each other, and not because they’re both trying to make Maya jealous.
I have no clue! Stephen Stohn said “There will be four of these particular digital shorts, spread throughout the year…”, but there haven’t been any dates announced.
If I were going to guess, I’d say they might release one during both 13C and 13D, with the fourth webisode getting thrown in there somewhere, but who knows.
I don’t think Drew/Clare or Drew/Zoë will go anywhere…especially the latter given that Zoë will have her own thing going with Zig and making her mission to stick it to Maya.
I’d like to think that whatever happens Bianca will be upset, but it won’t be a dealbreaker given what looks to be like Drew’s circumstances in upcoming episodes (not sleeping, sleeping pills, etc).
