[S4E8] Love Jones
Papa was sad to see that his ex, Maisha (Genesis Denise Hale) had moved on to dancing with another man. He promised to get her back. Papa took Maisha to his place and shared with her how he felt about her and how much he misses her. Kevin and Jemma meet up later to have a chat. Kevin asks Jemma if she still loves him. Could they get back together? Is she worthy of him? Keisha went on another date with Christian. She had another panic attack, and she stormed off. However, the young man consoled Keisha- he understood the pain she was experiencing.
"New Kid on the Block" is the eighth episode of the fourth season of the American animated television series The Simpsons. It originally aired on the Fox network in the United States on November 12, 1992. After meeting his new neighbor, Laura, Bart falls in love with her, only to later discover that she has a boyfriend, Jimbo Jones, whom he attempts to scare off so that he can have a relationship with Laura. Meanwhile, Homer sues the Sea Captain Horatio McCallister after being kicked out of his all-you-can-eat restaurant while still hungry.
The Simpsons' elderly neighbors, the Winfields, finally relocate because of Homer's antics. The new neighbors are Ruth Powers, who is divorced, and her young daughter Laura, with whom Bart falls in love at first sight.
Bart falls in love his new next-door neighbor, young teenager Laura Powers. But try as he might, Bart can't get Laura to take interest in him romantically and is heartbroken when he finds out that Laura is in love with Jimbo Jones.
In Mercia, the violence is not so visceral, but the politics are still fraught with danger. Having given in to the cajoling of King Edward of Wessex (Timothy Innes) to agree to become lord of Mercia, Uhtred of Bebbanburg (Alexander Dreymon) is now faced with censure from his erstwhile lover Aethelflaed (Millie Brady). She is dismayed that Uhtred would even consider this, given that he would be beholden to Edward and Wessex. Highlighting an issue that was an actual concern in early 10th-century England, she argues that Mercia needs to be independent from Wessex in order for any resulting alliance to be one of equals.
The intimate moments between these characters are what make us love them so much. But from the moment Steve begins opening his heart to Nancy about his dreams of a big family of lots of kids, surely you have to start worrying about whether he's going to make it. The Duffer Brothers definitely know how to torture these characters (and us). Vulnerable moments between Mike and Will or Lucas and Max or Dustin and Eddie make you fear for the safety of these characters we know and love.
As Will fights back tears, it's clear he isn't just talking about Eleven. Clearly his feelings for Mike run deep. Sadly both of the show's gay characters are crushed by their crushes in this episode, as both Will and Robin realize they're in love with characters who appear to be straight. This has drawn criticism from fans who criticise the tired trope of depicting tragic gay characters forever doomed to unrequited relationships (and all this right after Pride Month, too). Still, maybe there's hope for Robin in episode 9, as her Molly Ringwald-esque crush Vickie at least looks conflicted when she spots Robin.
Pam and Jim are so in love here. I've always imagined Pam drinks so much because she knows she wants to be with Jim and wants an excuse to finally indulge her real feelings; I'd imagine she's also really anxious after standing up to Roy (I would be!).
"Second drink" could mean so many things. Is it a metaphor for how Pam is acting, after Roy's departure (and maybe the alcohol) thawed her usual caution? Is Jim the "second drink" in her love life, only there once her attachment to Roy melts away? Maybe. It's also just a really great line.
I love it when The Office makes real life seem just as absurd as the show. I was hit by somebody with their car twice this year (long story), and this pretty much sums up their reaction...both times. 041b061a72
