TV couples who ruin shows for me…

Last week we had a romance movie post, this week we are swinging back the opposite direction. TV Couples who ruins shows for me. Because look, not all couples are meant to be and lots of them are toxic on TV. Sometimes, it is better to be alone than with someone, if they are the wrong person. So, here is my list of most (not all), couples who I hate on TV. May we all remember the wonderful friends and family members in our lives this Galentine’s day. Shout-out to all the people who support me and this blog!

*disclaimer, not all of these are necessarily couples but fan favs.

In no particular order…

Duncan Kane and Veronica Mars

I know I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, Duncan Kane is so boring, he just seems like a child. He acts like a child the whole time and he is way too boring for Veronica. I was so glad when he left the show. Moreover, they both believed they were siblings, he believed it before they slept together, which is just disgusting, but she also believed it later. How do you date again after that?

yucky…

Veronica and Piz

If you can’t tell, I love Veronica Mars as a show, I really do, just man, everyone except Logan was a bit boring. Piz was especially boring, it felt like they were trying to give Piz and inch because he was resident nice guy, but he wasn’t that nice, he was boring and she had way more chemistry with Logan. I know her and Logan are super toxic but I can’t.

Betty and Archie

I just don’t like how Archie never saw Betty in that way, she put herself out there saying she loved him then he rejected her and dated countless other girls, then Betty found happiness for years with Jughead and they just make sense together. Even a whiff of Betty and Archie made me completely stop watching Riverdale. They couldn’t just stay best friends? She and Jughead couldn’t just move forward without bringing Archie back into the mix. Also, “I will never be good enough for you Betty” or whatever he said in the pilot feels like such a cop out to me.

Callie and Brandon

Brandon seemed to Callie like an easy way to self-destruct. She constantly turned to him any time she felt things were going too well or a small inconvenience happened she would turn to him. They were trying to be siblings, they lived together as siblings for years, It never should have happened.

Every time there was a problem with her being adopted she would go back to Brandon and date him or have sex with him or whatever, which only makes everything perpetually worse. Callie was the most self destructive character I personally have seen but Brandon was just along for the ride it seemed. They never even really made sense to start with, he was in a relationship when they met, there was no reason he had to ‘fall for Callie’. Just bad vibes all around for me.

Finn and Rachael

Sorry but they are both just too boring. Finn is the same as Duncan where he seems too much like a child and Rachel is so annoying. Finn also just didn’t respect her at the start of the show. I don’t know, maybe they get better later in the show and grow as people, but in the beginning when they dated the first few times it was terrible.

Miranda Bailey and nurse Eli

She could’ve had Ben that whole time but went for the young “attractive” asshole of a nurse. Who made her do so many things which she would never have done. Eli was like a vacation from who Miranda was, he made what he thought more important than what she thought.

I really never felt like their relationship was organic, it seemed like he was pushing her constantly and she was acting like a teenager. We all know it was just an excuse to create tension with Ben before they got back together so…

Rory and Jess

I know lots of people love Rory and Jess but I just don’t, but more on that in a dedicated post coming soon…

Sorry but, having similar interests doesn’t mean you are a good match or good people.

Iris and Barry

I’m sorry I just don’t gel with the whole, one best friend always loved the other and they never saw them, until, they did. Iris got engaged to another man and it took her finding out Barry was flash to be into him (also her fiance dying but, regardless), I just don’t love it. They grew up together and she never saw him. There are so many plot issues which revolve around, Iris not loving Barry and its just too much.

Clary and Jace

Look, I think if you hear that you’re siblings than even finding out you aren’t, that should be tainted, shouldn’t be allowed

Ross and Rachel

Ross has never deserved Rachel, I’m sorry but it’s true. He was so possessive of her early on considering they weren’t together and he always under estimated her and was such a misogynist. However, I will admit I have no sentimental attachment to Friends because I never really watched it until recently, but watching it now, with a relatively open mind. Ross is a terrible person. He is homophobic, spiteful, rude and much more. Rachel deserved the best.

Stefan and Elena

They are just so boring. That’s it, so bland. Stefan is also basically so obsessed with Elena he almost misses Caroline completely, because he was waiting for Elena to leave Damon for him? Honestly, I would have just picked Caroline from the start.

Ezra and Aria

Their whole story is just so messed up, to know she is 15 and date her, and underage girl because he wants to investigate her, then continues to date her whilst being her teacher and continually lying about it. It is just so yucky. Also, romanticizing them for the entire show is a terrible and potentially predatory message to send to the shows young audience.

Waitlist and Rebecca,

Yes I choose to call him Waitlist…

Also, just boring, I am way more into Waitlist and Laurel. There was no real reason for Wes and Rebecca to actually get together, they didn’t have similar interests or lives, she was so rude to him from the second they met, they were so distrusting of each other. Great show though!

Paige and Emily

They just have no chemistry to me, I also think starting with trying to drown Emily is not the way.

Emily and Alison,

Alison is the worst so that’s that, but she also manipulated Emily countless times, she shouldn’t have gotten back with Alison.

Spencer and JJ

JJ marries Will, has a baby with him and is married to him for years, she works with Spencer that entire time, but then they try to throw something together between them as the show is ending. That is so disrespectful to Will, I love Will, he is the bright shining light saying that you can work at the BAU and have a loving family. We should never negate JJ and Will’s relationship and love.

Spencer and Caleb

Even if Hanna said it was okay it is so iffy for them to get together and they were just a terrible couple which ruins Caleb and Hanna entirely as well as the end of the show. Caleb and Spencer made such good borderline best friends, but it felt so wrong for them to be together which jeopardized Hanna and Spencer’s friendship. Just a bad move for me from the writers. Like come on, Spencer and Caleb could at least have waited til Hanna was actually married.

Izzie on Greys with anyone.

Sorry if you love Izzie or love Izzie and Karev but they are all terrible to me. Look, Denny was her patient so she shouldn’t have crossed that line and in real life I doubt she would have thrown her career away. Alex cheats on her, stands her up, treats her terribly then she gets back with him and they get married, not because either of them should have been married but because she was meant to die. And George was just terrible, awful.

So, I’m sure I could spend years and years adding to this list and remembering more but that felt like enough this time. Let me know your thoughts on any of the couples I have mentioned in the comments, or if you have any couples you hate. I’d love to hear your lists.

Why I truly believe Mr. Blue Water High, AKA Duncan, should have been “A”…

Okay, so I mentioned last week that I wish Duncan had been ‘A’ and I know that kind of comes out of no where for most people so I thought I’d explain here because I know those last two season 2 posts were already long.

Before we get into it, please check out my socials, like, comment or share this post or sign up for email notifications if you want to support my blog.

So, we meet him because he knows Vivian, however, he also knows that Vivian’s name is Alison so I find it suspicious that he would call out Vivian instead of Alison.

Secondly, Alison went missing like 2 years ago, he never heard from her again in those 2 years, but also never saw a single newspaper with her face or a segment on the news when she went missing, let alone again when she was found dead and therefore, as his story went, he had no idea she was dead. This already never sat right to me and he was also never mentioned to the Liars, not even with like a secret code name.

Then he magically appears knowing all this stuff about them and knowing about the friends saying he would fly Alison around because he flies planes and she would just chill with him, including the exact day she went missing??? Excuse me. He saw her ‘the day she went missing’.

Anyway, then he basically has bad vibes the whole time he is with Aria, for instance, forcing her into a plane with him when she really doesn’t know him at all then he forces her to fly the plane despite her saying she didn’t want to.

Anyway, the Liars just like believe his story, but he has no way to back up his story. Then he literally disappears and is never seen again, not even when Alison is found not dead and had been kidnapped, and we know that is also all over the news, it was a high profile case, he still doesn’t come back to like, see her, or check on her.

So, the only things we have to go off are his story, that while she was hiding from ‘A’ she was also just chilling with yet another guy, flying around etc. A man who appears to have no person skills and also hasn’t read a newspaper in years. That is the story he gave. And they believe him, fine, but I don’t have to.

Further, if you changed the music in this scene it would be super creepy. Re-edit the scene and you could throw it in an obsessive horror movie.

Overall, I think it would have been better if it was him because he randomly appeared, his story didn’t make sense and then he disappeared again. Because, honestly, I think we can all agree Charlotte as ‘A’ was so farfetched it’s unreal. He could easily have been just another man who Alison was messing with (just like Ezra, Toby, Ian, Emily) and wanted revenge on her so he was doing those things to her, we obviously keep the mental illness in the story which made him also want to attack the Liars. Even Mona as ‘A’ doesn’t totally make sense because she had so much going on, she was dating, in high school, doing extra-curriculars, being at home with her parents while also planning all this stuff and watching the girls every move. We have no idea what he had been doing or what he was doing the entire rest of the time.

Anyway, I just feel like Duncan is such a loose end that I wish there had been a reason. As they said, they didn’t think Alison wasted Vivian on flirting, well apparently she did…

Every qualm I have with ‘Pretty Little Liars’ season 2b:

Welcome back to Pretty Little Liars season 2b. If you missed 2a or the previous posts you can check them out here;

But let’s get it going:

1.So, was this all planned? Mona would have been ‘A’ already, or at least she was already messing with Alison so did she do this to force them down the road to see Aria’s dad having an affair right after, because if she did, that’s genius.

cunning plan Mona.

2.”I always saw you as more of a cute werewolf type” – haha teen wolf

3.They can go to their usual meeting place and Mona doesn’t know they are there and plotting? As if Mona hadn’t already figured out they meet up in this random abandoned greenhouse.

4.Hanna got arrested and Caleb didn’t come back early?

5.How does Mona have time to date noel still?

6.Like seriously the whole time no one says anything specifically relating to Aria being underage and therefore, Ezra grooming an underage girl.

7.Mike does not care in the slightest about Aria and Ezra

8.Why’d Aria start lying about her and Ezra again? Making that a secret only means ‘A’ could use it against her or tell the secret for her. It wasn’t her friends who made it dangerous?

9.Where did Holden go, I liked him!

10.Although, Holden also doesn’t care about Ezra! How in the tally of people who care is it still only Byron, Ella and Noel?

11.How did Mona know where they were going to order food from, already have containers to swap then manage to swap their food out?

12.They weren’t really trying to keep a secret were they? To yell Emily when you drop something.

13.Is it normal to go to a hairdresser to colour your wig? Why didn’t she just buy a brunette real hair wig?

14.Why would the dry-cleaner keep a coat for like over a year?

15.How did Kate get Hanna’s phone with the image on it to send around to the whole school, also that would be illegal in Australia cause like, distribution of child pornography, no?

16.*big flash forward spoiler* Why wouldn’t Spencer’s parents tell her shes adopted when they came clean about Jason

17.Why did Mona help Emily?

18.Isn’t it funny that Jason is actually Spencer’s cousin but Jason is still Melissa’s half sister but Melissa and Spencer are also only half sisters.

19.Jenna didn’t have a problem with Maya crashing at Noel’s?

20.Did Mona only send herself the ‘A’ message because Hanna cancelled on her and she wanted Hanna to pay her attention?

21.Oh look wren is being a creeper again!

22.That conversation before leaving Wren’s house, is the same as the one she had with Toby in season 1 when they first started dating.

23.I hate Paige

24.If Melissa had just told Spencer about Alison/Bethany way earlier it would’ve been easier for them to figure out what was going on.

25.Old mate from blue water high knew Alison’s name, it had been 2 years since he’d seen or spoken to her supposedly but he didn’t know she was missing? Or dead? Surely that made the news outside of just rosewood and when her body was found and a murder investigation started wouldn’t he have seen?

26.Alison was wearing a disguise but also telling this random guy all about her and her friends and was clearly leading him on too. Moral being, how many people was Ali dating before she left?

27.Why did Aria agree to go up in the plane? For all she knows he could be the killer, they have no way to prove his story. I wish he had been ‘A’.

28.Did this one really happen or no?

29.Answer me why they believe Melissa would be attacking Spencer, her friends, fine but why would she mess with Spencer.

30.Why would Melissa say that if she” knows it was Spencer”

31.Surely there isn’t enough evidence for a conviction

32.I have a little suspicion that just because you don’t work there anymore, that it’s still not a good idea to kiss at a school dance… then also go back to work at the school again after.

33.I can deny Paige and Emily’s “connection”.

34.Gum doesn’t actually mean anything, imagine trying to find someone, finding an Extra gum wrapper and assuming they’re connected because the person you’re looking for, chews on Extra.

35.Again; why did she start sending the texts before Hanna had gotten close with the girls again if her reasoning was because they took Hanna, also why’d she still try and ruin Hanna

36.The adult psychologist literally let Mona control her, make her leave town and drop all her patients – Dr. Sullivan literally just bowed down to Mona instead of telling the police.

37.Why would Mona even want Spencer to join? She seemed to be having a lot of fun already.

38.All the staff know Charlotte right? Why’d they let her just go mess around with Mona.

And that is every qualm I have with Pretty Little Liars season 2. Thanks for reading, don’t forget you can like, comment or follow this blog and check out my socials @simplymythoughts_blog and Simply My Thoughts Blog on Facebook.

Every qualm I have with ‘Pretty Little Liars’ season 2a…

Welcome back everybody for season 2 of everything that makes absolutely no sense to me about Pretty Little Liars. If you missed season 1 check it out here;

So again, I love Pretty Little Liars, truly is it one of my favourite shows ever and has been for years so I have watched it A LOT, but some things just don’t make sense, however it is still a great show. So, here are my problems with season 2.

1.This just never made sense for me, the entire Ian falling off the bell-tower then his body being moved so quickly etc. never worked.

2.The liars let Garret keep the money from Ian

3.How many times can they say, Jenna isn’t A? I personally think it was safe to say that in season 1 when Jenna came back to school and they got a text while she was sitting at the table with them…

4.Is that a small room Mr realter? In my world it ain’t that small…

5.They found the phone but not the flash drive? Also, the USB just sits in the church for like months before someone finally finds it and gives it to Ted?

6.Hanna’s money problems really didn’t last long…

7.How did Mona have time to date?

8.Why would you say the name out loud before they reply when you don’t know who could be listening? Also, ‘A’ could have heard Melissa tell Spencer just how ‘A’ knows everything else!

9.How did Mona get herself into Emily’s open house as a genuine buyer? (to wipe Emily’s hard drive)

10.Why is Samara not in it longer – Samara is my top favourite of Emily’s love interests. Justice for Samara!

I’m sure it had something to do with her moving to The Vampire Diaries or something but still!

11.Yer still on school grounds…

12.Who was it that Jason was hiding in the house?

13.What was the purpose of making Jason think he hurt Alison when Garret didn’t even do it. Why did he torture Jason?

14.Just because you’re on a college campus doesn’t mean you can be a couple!

15.Pawning Melissa’s engagement ring was messed up, obviously.

16.The guy at the pawn shop seems so concerned about the $2000 he gave Spencer when the ring was worth way more than that. Also, a $2000 ute (truck) is so cheap?

17.So Mona broke into Emily’s house in the time between them going to dinner to riffle through her trash to reconstruct the letter to then retype, print and fake it having been posted?

18.Wren. As with the previous posts and as with all the future posts.

19.How old is Jason? To have been into aria for like the whole show…

20.How’d Mona get a key to the therapists office??

21.The Hastings are terrible about Ian being dead, I get none of them really liked him, but the second he is dead they seem to hate his guts meanwhile their daughter just found out her husband is dead. Like some tact please during this difficult time for Melissa?

22.When exactly did Melissa lose the baby? I seriously need to know.

23.You can’t tell me anyone would actually fall for this. Very low effort Hanna.

24.The fashion show is the best episode of PLL cant change my mind, the doll house is close though.

25.So Spencer didn’t have time to go to the meetings but somehow Mona did, she also had time to date Noel, and watch them all the time and follow them around???

26.Tresemme product placement.

27.Emily moves into that huge house with Hanna, which appears to be a three bedroom since they said Caleb was staying in the spare room but then Emily moves into Hanna’s room with her.

28.Mr Hastings is very high and mighty about the DiLaurentis’s considering he had an affair with Jessica and her sister.

29.The fact they believe Jason would kill his sister for money from inheritance makes no sense.

30.Why is Garret doing all this stuff when he didn’t kill Alison, I can’t figure it out.

31.Mike says ” I was looking for a gun or something I could use to get away from here” and Aria literally just ignores that for how do Garret and Jenna know each other.

32.How did Mona get Emily the tube of HGH? Was Emily already using it before and she just switched the bottle? How’d she know the exact one she would be using at the time?

33.What was on page 5 anyway and why did Garret care, or was it Wilden?

34.I have seriously thought this for years but – why didn’t Emily just say hey how about I give everyone my number so we can all hang out again soon and we can all chat about it. That would’ve been normal and counted as giving her the number? Why was Emily being stupid.

35.So Caleb can just cut out on school for a while?

36.How’d she make sure Emily got that box of cereal and also, product tampering and also how many boxes did she have to go through to get enough only ‘A’s

37.Did Lucas really break into a massage parlor to give Emily a massage for Mona?

38.Spencer getting in Ezra’s car could just mean he was giving her a lift @ Mrs. Montgomery!

39.They couldn’t hear their own voices coming out of the loud speaker?

not my video

40.Why’d she say involved when it would be like illegal and an abuse of power and so wrong?

41.Maya – Maya comes back and Emily acts surprised that she’s Bi when Emily and Maya met Maya had a boyfriend that Emily knew about, so like, it didn’t even cross her mind that Maya’s boyfriend wasn’t a beard.

42.How was Ali so mad at Jason that she was seriously plotting to have him taken out of her grandmothers will, to the point that she asked Hanna’s grandmother all these questions to test how to do it to her brother.

43.We’ve all been asking yourselves this question too I believe…

44.Shame they didn’t have Turnitin back then aye…

45.How did Alison know Emily was going to need to be saved and where to go since Emily didn’t even know where she was going?

46.Can they actually say for sure they knew what the murder weapon was, also them having a shovel isn’t enough evidence in my opinion for a conviction, you still need to prove they had it that night, had motive, hit her with it and buried her in her own yard with no one knowing. Also, how were they going to explain them digging up a mask and a set of boots? Also, ‘knowing’ the murder weapon is a shovel doesn’t make it that exact shovel which had writing on the front with coordinates? So, obviously they haven’t been able to do the forensic testing on the shovel yet, to me, that means they don’t have enough proof to arrest.

47.Garrett, what’s he really have to gain, spoiler if you haven’t seen season 3 but, Garret pretended to Jenna that he killed Alison, which to start with, why? But anyway, then Garret literally runs around for 2 years trying to make Jason think he did it and becoming a cop to plant evidence and steal the page 5 of the autopsy and frame the Liars, but, he didn’t kill her. Like, Garret actually didn’t kill her so is his gain literally just Jenna is dating him? It doesn’t make any sense at all.

Thanks so much for reading! Part b will be up next week so stay tuned. To be notified when part b goes live you can subscribe to emails for my blog or check out my social media down below. Also, you can like, share or comment this post if you enjoyed it to support my blog.

My biggest television pet peeves…

I think it’s probably pretty clear by now that I watch a lot of TV. Hence my having my own dedicated blog. But, there are a multitude of consistent things used in TV shows which really annoy me. So, here is my list of my biggest pet peeves with examples from just a few shows. Hope you enjoy!

You can tell that they almost never fill coffee cups or mugs…

Just fill the coffee cup with water so it’s weighted correctly. That’s it. It is so obvious when the cup is empty cause they practically throw them around because it’s so light. It makes me so angry. Is that just me? It’s like they put the lid on a takeaway cup and think I can’t tell it’s empty.

Women wearing heels all the time!

For instance, women wearing stilettos to high school everyday. That is incredibly unrealistic. Even in superhero shows and crime shows the women have heels on. HEALS ARE NOT EASY TO RUN IN SO I DON’T BELIEVE YOU. Don’t bring young women up in a world which tells us we need to be wearing high heels everywhere to be successful and beautiful, or even just that we should be. I’m talking to you Pretty Little Liars and Gossip Girl.

I don’t know about you but; if I was in a role which I may need to chase someone (i.e. super hero, police officer, doctor) I don’t think my choice of shoe would be heeled. Maybe that’s just me…

Continuity problems:

For example, How I Met Your Mother didn’t decide that Robin was Canadian until the second season – then they decided she was a Canadian teen pop sensation but she still has issues with her dad having wanted a son in the later seasons and was apparently a tomboy.

Arrow: Now, I never caught up on Arrow so I haven’t finished it to see how they explain this but, Oliver Queen gets trapped on a deserted island, only he doesn’t because it isn’t deserted. But also, there is no one there 5 years later when he is rescued. But also, he goes back to Sterling City for a hot second, and he spends a lot of time in China trying to deal with a bio-weapon. And I’m sure a lot of other stuff. Before he somehow has to go back to the island, sit around there alone growing a beard and setting up his little signal fire, then finally get rescued to go back home. I recognise they probably explain this somehow but it really infuriated me to watch him do all these things not even on the island during the 5 years he was presumed dead. INCLUDING going back to Sterling City and seeing Thea!

Casting way out of the real age range:

We constantly see in Hollywood they cast way above the age they are portraying especially for teens and young adults. This really just skews children and teen’s ideas of how they are supposed to look at a certain age when most of the time those playing 15/16 year old kids are in their mid 20’s. Why can’t we just cast close to the age of the character?

Recasting:

I understand there can be a need to recast actors in the industry because actors choose not to come back or what not but it can be really jarring as a viewer. For example, after several seasons watching Jake T. Austin in ‘The Fosters’ (on Stan), they recast him with Noah Centineo. Jake played that character for years then they just put Noah in and hoped no one would care that much. Especially when it is hard to really play the character the exact same way a different actor did. This same thing happens in Pretty Little Liars where they recast Jason after he made several appearances. It may sometimes be unavoidable but it is still really jarring as a viewer.

We so often see people in shows having super private conversations which cannot be heard by others, happen in rooms full of people!

For instance, the Liars chat about ‘A’ constantly at school and parties and what not, do they really think they are being secretive. Aria constantly talks about Ezra at school when he is a teacher there. The Keating 5 just talk about murder all the time in front of so many people. Yes, none of these people are being spoken to but, people can hear your conversation even if they aren’t trying to listen. I just feel like you wouldn’t realistically talk about having murdered people in public.

Trying to be super sneaky and hidden whilst also shinning a torch everywhere telling everyone where you are…

This happens so often in horror and crime related shows. It really grinds my gears when people are trying to hide from something or corner them and they shine a flashlight down the entire hallway. I understand needing to see but it is really not hidden. If I was hiding from the Police in a dark house with the lights off, the Police shining their torch all around would signal me to where they are in order to continue hiding.

“Slow Burn”:

When a show doesn’t have and interesting beginning or they have to do heaps of exposition. For instance, I tried watching ‘The Witcher’ and only made it 1 episode in because, well, it was boring. Not much really happened in the first episode whilst at the same time they were trying to throw so much information at the audience to set the scene. I personally (and I know many won’t agree) would have preferred if they had done some sort of intro scene or narration to set up the world we are in, like in Avatar the Last Airbender or Vampire Academy, The 100, etc. Sometimes narrative exposition is annoying but if the show is going to throw lots of lore and information about supernatural beings and whatnot, I find it kind of annoying not to. I felt the same in The Haunting of Bly Manor and several other shows. Moral being, your pilot needs to be interesting and exciting but also easy to follow. I don’t want to struggle to understand and interpret what is going on because I won’t finish the show.

Changing your title song part way through the show:

I have seen many shows which have done this and just randomly switched songs or moved to a different version of the same song and I just cant stand it. By the time they change the song I’m already so used to the sound of it that every time after that, when I hear the different version of the song, it puts me off. So, thanks Veronica Mars specifically for this one.

Title sequences that don’t fit:

I feel like some shows make a title sequence before they really realize what the vibe of the show is going to be and the title scene just doesn’t fit. For instance, Pretty Little Liars, I love Pretty Little Liars but I will never understand why they made the title sequence as it was, the colouring wasn’t the same, the song didn’t feel like the right tone for the show, all of it feels off to me.

credit to owner of video

Similarly, Grey’s Anatomy; I also love Grey’s however, when you go back to the early seasons it is really off putting seeing the Grey’s title sequence as it, for me at least, doesn’t fit the show. The title sequence they put in makes Grey’s look like it is far more sexual than it is, yes there are a lot of relationships and drama in Grey’s but there is also a hell of a lot of medicine and the title scene, if I hadn’t seen the show first, would have made me not want to watch the show because of the message and vibe it gives off.

She’s the only girl who doesn’t throw herself at me, so I like her…

What a tired storyline which is really quite disgusting when you think about it. Let’s consider just recently, the entire premise of the Kissing Booth was he liked her because everyone else wanted him, gross! This also kind of perpetuates that most girls will just throw themselves at an attractive man which is just disrespectful. Complex characters please!

One best friend has always loved the other – then they date…

I really hate this one too. Just think of a better plot because if one friend has always loved the other, and the other never saw them that way then why do they deserve to suddenly realize how great their friend is, why didn’t they notice before.

And obviously we can’t forget;

Main Character syndrome…

But, I’ll spare y’all from hearing this one again, if you want to know more about this one check out my post here:
