I realized, while watching this episode, that I may be expecting too much from this show. I like it a lot. I find it compelling and addictive, and I am really starting to like the characters. (I’m also finally remembering Adam’s name. Poor guy.) (Also, I’m shocked that the words “Stop thinking with your clit!” came out of a Lifetime show. 😂)
In this episode, Rachel sets up a date at Adam’s winery. The problem is, it’s completely run down. In order to shoot there, first she has to get the electricity turned back on and then give at least part of it a makeover. Her work is cut out for her.
While running around trying to get things going, she finds out that Jeremy has been promoted. He thinks that she said something to Quinn to help him get the job. When he finds out that she didn’t actually help him, he gets mad. He reminds her that he’s with Lizzie, though—almost as if he’s really reminding himself. He also warns her to stay on guard with Adam, who’s been flirting with her.
I called it. The love triangle begins!
Adam complements her eyeliner in front of Jeremy, who seems a little jealous. He also kisses her in front of Jeremy. Meanwhile, he has sex with Chet’s friend’s wife, who is investing in the winery—in front of Chet and company, as a favor to get their support. He’s also been busy sexting his ex. Rachel doesn’t seem affected by any of his behavior, past it interfering with the show… until the end, when she watches the footage of Adam kissing her.
I’m sad that I have to wait ’til Monday to see what happens next. UnReal is definitely engaging. I did want more from it, but I’m learning to just enjoy it for what it is. Maybe I was off with the whole mental illness thing? All I know is, it’s interesting to see the seedy things that happen behind the scenes of the show. It’s also interesting to watch Rachel, who is definitely the wild card. I’m hoping to really see her get even more wild, but again, I’m just going to sit back and enjoy it for whatever it is from this point on.
