It's the aftermath of the Rydell Revelations. What did you all think?

It didn't really conclude much. More like just lit the flame for it to continue.

Wow, snubs! I didn't know that you were listening to this recent of AIO episodes!

I, too, felt like this episode was a bridge. Nothing really dramatic or important happened. It definitely did not quell any of the controversy from the Rydell Revelations nor did it make it worse.

:lol: Haha, I've actually only heard the Rydell Saga. :p But it's something! \:D/

I felt the episode was a little weak as an episode in general. I have no idea what they have planned for this ongoing arc (maybe they are just making it up as the go :boohoo: ), but I feel like it's never gonna end as long as Morrie and Suzu are in the show. Also, the buildup to the Rydell Revelations was rather repetitive and predictable.
ANNNDDDDDD, WHY IN THE WORLD DID THEY BRING BACK TASHA?! ...FOR NO REASON. :boohoo: :noway: I was very intrigued when she showed up, but after realizing it had absolutely nothing to do with the story arc and it was obvious they weren't going to go anywhere with her, I was highly disappointed.

I also thought it was a little silly that Whit just outed "Natalie's" true identity to the kids. :p

I didn't love the Rydell saga stuff in general. What I did like about this episode is that it felt like a genuine reaction from Emily. Her feelings of betrayal and questioning and avoidance all felt realistic to me. I like how she was trying to work that stuff out and that it wasn't just glossed over.

It felt like they were definitely setting something up and I am curious if Jules' notebook will actually turn out to be important or not. It felt like it would be but I'm not sure how.
