In this week’s episode of Don’t Trust the B— in Apt. 23, June is devastated when she receives a wedding invitation addressed to her and her ex-fiancé, so in an attempt make her feel better, Chloe gives June a crash course in confidence and fierceness — but does too good a job
Any episode that starts with the end of the episode and goes back to the beginning makes me weirdly happy. Especially if it means that I get to watch James van der Beek doing a sort of zombie crawl after coming back from a vodka tasting.
That joy, however, is tempered by June’s wallowing over the wedding invitation that arrives in her mail. Her emotional turmoil over going to the wedding alone, while still meeting her friends, reminds me so much of what can happen when life goes horribly wrong.
Chloe’s techniques to help June work a room and gain some self-confidence is laudable, only not so good in the end (I can only imagine.) I mean, when June starts to talk in the third person, the world is sensing it, but it’s not going to be ready for the wrath.
Evidence of the wrath is that Chloe gets home before June, and that June’s drunk, and is doing some of the stupidest things I’ve ever seen from a person.
The three of them going to a James event, well, I can’t wait for it. However, I can live without the cut-aways of James’ Guy Richie movie. I mean, watching June and James doing an impromptu dance is great. Chloe getting photoshopped out of a photo of the two of them and then into ones from April’s.
No longer is the threesome between Chloe, James and June is no longer a sexy one. I agree, James. It’s awful.
Dawson showing up at a wedding wouldn’t be as amazing as Pacey showing up (especially after PaceyCon), but it’ll work for me right now. I wouldn’t want to be that couple after, though. James is a pretty big star to try and outshine.
However, any wedding can be outshined when an ex-boyfriend shows up. June should worry about everything else that will happen in this wedding. You are not going to be friends with Steven, even if you’re making out with him while he spills that he’s got a new girlfriend. All of those are just gross, by the way.
Boring as a reason for a break-up might be worse than “it’s not you, it’s me” line that is used.
Chloe wants the world to go back to where the center of the world is Chloe and not June. Not a shock at all. To hear Hercules tell Chloe that June is having a meltdown in the coatroom, well, that should cheer Chloe up. But then the world is now revolving around James as he got to sleep with the bride (even if he’s her one.)
Getting James to act at the wedding now, though, that’d I’d pay to actually see. Kissing James and then being slapped by Chloe, I hope that really does help June get what she wants. Good thing that June doesn’t get to express her frustration at Steven with “You Oughta Know”, though.
