Oh, This Poor Child
Young Emma Lavery has not had an easy life.
The man she thought was her father turned out to be a deranged sexual predator, who was eventually murdered by Jonathan Lavery.
The man who is her biological father is an epic douchebag.
Her mother has been slowly driven insane by the fact that she is in love with the aforementioned epic douchebag and, after a downward spiral including scheming to get pregnant, murdering her brother, framing kids for the murder, attempting to murder Greenlee, faking the kidnapping of Emma, shooting Di, stabbing Erica and strangling Aidan, is currently being held against her will in a mental hospital.
Her family life is tragic enough, but what about the fact that she is the loneliest human being to ever live?!
Emma: Can we get whipped cream on our hot chocolate?
Greenlee: Gobs of it.
Emma: You're the best friend I ever had.
That is literally the saddest statement I have ever heard. What must your life be like if Greenlee is your best friend? She is fabulous in many ways, but being a good friend is not one of those ways. I guess it is possible that Emma is sucking up for whipped cream, but I doubt it...
I can't imagine liking Greenlee and Ryan as a couple in any way, shape or form, unless I suffered a head trauma, so I am biased, but...are they in any way root-worthy? I am asking sincerely. I mean, Annie is in a mental institution because of them and Greenleeis already bonding with Emma? At least wait a couple of weeks before you start flaunting your soulmateness, you know? It just comes down to basic manners.
