Don't Take Me For Granted had lots of drama. I just didn't like most of it.
The Bad. Felix and Brooke officially getting together meant nothing to me. I don't like Felix and don't know why Brooke would either. He's just annoying and even now it's kind of obvious that he put 'dyke' on Peyton's locker. Again, I don't care about Anna. Her sexuality issues should be interesting but I just think she's a lifeless character and keeps blowing off Peyton which I hate. I don't believe for a second that Haley would doubt going back to Nathan for Chris Kellar. This was just a ridiculous cliffhanger to keep people going until the next episode. I hated the kiss too - there hasn't been something there since the start Chris Kellar. Why can't their marriage be healthy for a little while longer?
The Good. While Peyton wanting to buy drugs is a little OTT for my liking, I liked how she handled the graffiti on her locker. She was pretty bad-ass when came into school with that top on and then took it off in the hallway when the principal told her to, Probably the best scene in the episode. And Jake returning of course! They've been setting it up for the past few episodes and that was a good cliffhanger. He looks fit too with that new hair cut, and he didn't look impressed that she was about to do drugs. Karen finding out about the HCM test that Lucas turned down was intense and I liked how she banned him from basketball. There is a lot less basketball in this season so far and that kind of feels weird. It was a chopped on ending but I did like how Deb came clean to Karen about sleeping with Keith.
The Okay. The reveal that Jules is working for Dan was a good ending to thee episode but also a really silly idea. For gods sake can't anyone be happy on this show? Mouth being the one who smashed Brooke' car was a nice twist. I just don't care that much about him. I don't know why but I though Lucas suddenly realising he has feelings for Brooke was kind of out of the blue. I mean they've only just started hanging out again? So the scene where he sees her and Lucas kissing had little impact on me.
So still struggling with storylines and new characters.
