After a yr and a half, we all know the id of who has been harassing Dana Sue, the ramifications of Cal’s bar battle at Sullivan’s, and if Helen accepted Ryan’s proposal.
Candy Magnolias Season 3 Episode 1 picked up solely minutes after the cliffhangers on Candy Magnolias Season 2 Episode 10. Helen hadn’t accepted the proposal but, primarily as a result of she was too busy defending Cal
The drama in Serenity was heating up.
Helen: I want you to belief me.
Cal: I do. I simply want we weren’t having this dialog. I want I did not let him get to me.
I hate what they did to Cal. He was by no means violent or insecure, however they rewrote his character to present him and Maddie a greater storyline. Now, he is doubting himself and hated that he allowed Stu to goad him into punching him.
Cal grew to become so withdrawn that he did not need consolation from anybody, and that apprehensive Erik since he is seen indicators of PTSD and despair earlier than.
Maddie and Cal have been by means of a lot to get a great place, and I hope this does not set them again. Whereas Maddie loves Cal, she’s handled Invoice, who had secrets and techniques for a very long time.
Her children additionally handled the fallout. Ty was anxious to speak to Cal, however Kyle feared Cal and Maddie would cut up up since he was used to everybody leaving them. Kyle looks as if he handled the divorce, however even he knew Invoice was by no means round.
Cal has been the daddy determine they trusted, whether or not it was about life recommendation or relationships, and he was nonetheless affected by self-pity.
I’ve by no means wished to harm anybody, however in some way, I at all times do.
Cal did not even appear glad that Stu dropped the fees. We will solely hope that Cal listens to Helen and makes amends by bettering himself and contacting Stu since that might solely make issues worse.
Cal has by no means cared about picture. He dated Maddie regardless of what Mary Vaughn thought, so it baffles me that the writers assume he was making an attempt to keep up the “perfect boyfriend” picture to please Maddie.
Hopefully, this arc will present them with development as they each study extra about themselves.
Wish to meet me in examine corridor? We will sit subsequent to one another. We’ve got to work on our personal factor.
Dana Sue and Ronnie nonetheless have a number of points speaking too. Ronnie had been gone for therefore a few years that he felt out of the loop when she did not inform him about receiving Ms. Frances’s test.
That is a part of the issue. Whereas Dana Sue insisted they had been coping with Coach Coal, she was used to doing issues independently and wanted to study to promptly share necessary data together with her associate.
I additionally suspect Dana Sue and Ronnie might have points deciding the way to use the cash. Dana Sue nonetheless wished to dictate the place Annie went to school, whereas Ronnie believed in letting their daughter select her personal path.
Having Ronnie’s sister arrive proved to be an much more vital problem. Kathy hates Dana Sue and that she inherited Sullivan’s, placing Ronnie within the center. Ronnie did not need the household drama and instructed his sister to depart, however Kathy did not look like the sort to stop.
The love triangle between Helen, Ryan, and Erik is fascinating. She has beloved Ryan her whole life and’s drawn to present it one other likelihood.
Nonetheless, Erik and Helen shared a mature, grown-up relationship. He picked up the items after Ryan broke up together with her, and he or she miscarried her child on Candy Magnolias Season 2 Episode 3.
Selecting between two respectable males is not simple, however stringing both of them wasn’t truthful.
Dana Sue: You need to decide in some unspecified time in the future.
Maddie: Possibly this is not that time but.
Helen: Is not it?
That is the place issues received sophisticated as a result of Dana Sue and Maddie every had their very own opinions on who Helen ought to date, and so did Maddie’s mother, Paula. Gossip and concepts are at all times intense in a small city.
May Helen and Ryan survive? They’re so completely different, together with of their emotions about wanting kids.
He by no means wished kids, so Helen by no means instructed him she was pregnant in Candy Magnolias Season 2. She needed to take care of the miscarriage with out him as a result of he was gone.
That was a tough capsule for Ryan to swallow now that he wished to have a child together with her and have extra adventures.
Ryan is not a nasty man, however he is egocentric. He cares extra about his adventures than what Helen wants.
Candy Magnolias Season 2 targeted extra on household, and whereas this season additionally targeted on the significance of household, it went again to its core, the energy of friendship.
Whereas we beloved seeing the women assist Helen by means of her sophisticated love triangle, seeing new friendships portrayed is much more thrilling. Trotter loves each Cal and Maddie, so seeing him consolation Maddie was heartwarming.
Trotter understands that sturdy males like Cal have issue discussing their emotions whereas figuring out that Maddie wanted to look after herself. Since they’ve labored collectively for tune, Trotter knew Maddie struggled to think about herself.
Whereas the boys have interacted earlier than, I beloved that Erik supported Cal and reminded him that everybody wanted associates. Cal must let his private demons out earlier than they get the most effective of him.
“Meaning” to Inform You” ended completely as a result of Erik and Helen had been so busy serving to their associates that they hadn’t had time to speak, however he lastly demanded solutions. Is that this the top of Erik and Helen, or do they nonetheless have an opportunity?
So, Candy Magnolias Fanatics, was the season premiere well worth the wait? Who do you assume Helen will select?
Had been you shocked that the bar battle story wrapped up with none authorized ramifications? Chime in beneath.
Candy Magnolias Season 3 is streaming now on Netflix.
