Ok, for those of you who have seen the preview for the eppy Diplomacy airing on Monday, you know a bit about what's to come... and may I just say... THAT'S MESSED UP!!!
A bit of a summary, if you will:
Ok, so this WHOLE time, and I mean through the series so far, it has been blatently and UNMISTAKEABLY clear that Matt is in love with Kris! And being the kind of guy that he is, ultimately, all he wants is to see her happy... keep this in mind...
Now Kris, confused about her feelings, obviously, never really committed herself any one person, Matt or Junior, for fear of hurting the other. And when she picked Junior, she decided before hand that she and Matt couldn't be because of his mom, their working together, etc, and that this would be best for everyone. Not that she was settling for Junior, be she did what she had to do for her new life.
So Kris falls for Junior, and vice versa... some heated passion... and then it's done! So now Kris has moved on and Junior still carries this relentless torch for her. Enter Matt, who's been on the back burner for some time, who has a girlfriend but it STILL hopelessly in love with Kris. Not being able to consumate their relationship in the beginning, Kris and Matt fall for each other, Matt breaks up with his girl Gillian and despite a huge dark cloud over head, they jumping into coupledom head first.
Ok, now to the grimey topic at hand:
So Kris, clearly overwhelmed by the affection Matt has for her, succums to he charms and they finally end up on the same emotional level (from what can be seen)... all is well...
Until Junior finds out!! This is where the THAT'S MESSED UP COMES IN!! We all knew it would be weird and hard for him to find out about Matt and Kris, but that bastard has the nerve to declare war because 'Matt stole his girl'!!
CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG, BUT WASN'T IT JUNIOR WHO STOLE KRIS FROM MATT IN THE VERY BEGINNING???
So now Junior is pissed and thinks it's Matt's fault, spawning a VERY Dawson's Creek "Triangle of Rage" with Kris caught in the middle.
My thought is: THIS IS TOTAL CRAP!!! How can Junior get pissed when he came in and took her during a vulnerable state??? And when Matt was the bigger man, stepped aside and let Kris and Junior be together when they started, even though it killed him to see it???
Then here comes Dani way out of left field, obviously still reeling from RJ's passing claiming that Kris and Matt don't deserve to be together!! Things get heated and next thing I see is Junior clipping Matt in the face!! WHAT THE HELL KNIDA FRIEND IS THAT???
How jealous and insecure to you have to be to hit your best friend, whom you stole the girl from in the first place, in the face just because the girl no longer loves you but him?? Sure it's hard to take!! But a real man doesn't do stuff like that!! Does he think it will get her back?? A real man would be happy that his best friend and his love have found love, even if it's with each other... just like Matt did without question.
I have no idea what is goin' down on Monday... but I certainly am tuning in to find out!!
