Time to see what the pajama fest is about from last week’s Lizzie Bennet Diaries promo. Knowing this series isn’t taking Presidents’ Day off like everyone else is music to a home-working-person’s ears!
OK, what we got here, let’ssssssss see.
- Another leap of faith. Because if Charlotte is “looking into” who made the video go away and hasn’t instantly stumbled across all the @s, the Pemberley involvement, etc…. Yeah, as amazing as this show is at bringing it from the world of Web to real world, we have to be a little understanding that there are always leaps of faith and suspensions of disbelief to be had. Were these real people in real time, the question of Pemberley’s involvement would have been a two-second revelation from the second that first Domino video hinting at “The Incident” went live.
- I suppose not suspecting Darcy’s involvement is fine for Lizzie in the book, because she has some sort of alternate explanation of what went on. Darcy cleverly makes someone else take ownership of the rescue. However, here? Lizzie, you’re a grad student, self-admitted over-analytical mind: have you really not once, in the darkest recesses, thought about Darcy as a possible answer here? As the literal only other interested party involved here – outside of everyone you know you can check off the list because they’ve already told you they had nothing to do with it – who knew the potential outcome? As someone with huge history with Wickham and a large incentive to dislike him? It’s the insomnia, Lizzie. Woken, bright-eyed, intelligent Lizzie, without alternative explanation, would have wondered this already.
- Has she wondered about Darcy already? I suppose it is possible. It’s not reading that way onscreen though. It is entirely possible I’m crazy and you guys think it’s totally reasonable that Lizzie hasn’t yet wondered about Darcy. Fight it out in the comments.
Also, even the Bennet jammies are cute. Stop, guys. Just stop. Jane, stop. Lizzie, stop. It’s like you were all born with Modclothey genes.
Also of note:
“Oh, it was…[look at camera, at audience who knows EXACTLY how it was]…nice.” Nice. Nice in the way you wanted to jump the CEO’s bones.
In real-world land, Ashley Clements’ Instagram has shown us HOW NICE it really was, and I’m sorry, I just must put this here, for reasons.
You bunch. Of merciless. Trolls. It’s not even like, the fun hide-info-from-you trolling, either. This is MEAN.
Anyway, Jane shows up in her jammies, and we watch her go to the special place when she hears Bing heard about her. Big “awwws” everyone. She gets all wide-eyed and unable to speak, and it’s super cute, and hails the beginning of the arc in which Darcy fixes things so that Jane and Bing have another shot, because super-secret superman Darcy is doing things behind the video screen at this very moment. We won’t know what, because damn Domino ended recording.
Jane goes off to watch Lizzie’s videos, and big money is on her talking to Lizzie next time about HOW MUCH LIZZIE LOVES DARCY even if she doesn’t want to admit it.
Thoughts? Theories? Will Lizzie go to bed dreaming bow ties and blue eyes?
I will actually be on a plane or near boarding one when the next video goes up, so someone else is gonna have to do this recap. I’m looking at you, Wahlee. I’m coming for you in the comments.
