    Leo was in a supervised camping group, hence why all the other children were there.

    I watched all the week's episodes and thoroughly enjoyed them. :)

    Yes there has been some good storytelling this week. There was just part of me that wished Charity and Cain had buggered off to France. I feel sorry for Noah.

    I was hoping for this to happen too, I'm bored of their 'will they, won'y they?' story.

    The Whites are great to watch, so dysfunctional with all kinds of possibilities that could happen. I'd like to see more family members appear too.

    Seriously....???


    That's the best way they could write the story where Dan finds out about Ross? Why would Kerry just blurt it out like that?

    I don't know what disappointed me the most, that reveal or character's dancing to something different to what the viewers were listening to.

    Megan didn't get much sleep because of all the noise Kerry was making !!!!! It will be great to see her and Sammy settle down together. Hopefully they will start a family and we'll have two or three thick as two planks idiots running round the village.

    Emma running away from a dead lover & stopping by some railings to cry it out, took me back nearly 30 years...

    She was really great. Could you imagine what she could do with a more grounded storyline. I just hope this isn't leading to her exit.

    She would be amazing.

    I have this sinking feeling that it's leading to her leaving the show. I don't want her to go and I think it would be a mistake to leave the Barton boys without a patriarch and a matriarch. Who knows, look what the show's done with Robert since he killed Katie. Maybe she will stick around. I hope so.

    I have to add that John Middleton continues to be amazing as well. The Middleton/Kearney scenes were intense. They were also cruel, which has only added to my suspicions that the writers are done making Emma likable, in spite of the fact that for me, Kearney manages to inject everything Emma does with just the right amount of pathos.

    I think so too, and if Kearney has had a year to year contract then it would be up in January 2017. It'll be a real shame if she goes.

    I think Emmerdale has missed a trick by failing to introduce Nana Barton, James and John's mother, into the show. The show could do with a traditional matriarch. And I love the idea of the four Barton boys being lead by a trio of matriarchs.

    But yeah, killing off James was a waste - the show needs more strong, decent and normal male characters.

    Katie's death was more of an accident, but there's also the fact that Ross set out to kill Robert without hesitation (while also wanting to have his own brother killed). There's no real reasoning as to how Ross could be capable of such a thing - at least we have some understanding of how Emma has ended up in the situation she's in. So maybe there is hope for keeping her in the show long term.

    I think that's what is really frustrating about this, has the show not realised how well Kearney has shaped the character? If they really appreciated that Emma has the makings of a really great Emmerdale character, would they have put her in such a tired, rehashed soap plot? I liked the idea of Emma doing her best to keep her family together in her own mad way, but without having her go over the top like she has.

    I love the thought of that. They could really have fun with the Nana Barton casting too.

    And all for the sake of a stunt week. :(

    I enjoyed the Ross/Victoria scenes tonight because I can't really recall them interacting before. I wish that we would get more of Ross then just little spurts here and there. Some more insight into his character and some genuine character development would be nice.

    I was going to ask if they had previous been in a story-line together. I don't understand why Victoria is blaming Adam and trying to keep the peace with Ross. I know the actor playing Adam is in the TV show I'M A CELEBRITY so I'm assuming this story is about taking Adam out of the show for a few weeks.

    If that is the reason it's a poor one, he could have left to go see Holly - or maybe he does....

    I wasn't watching regularly when Ross was introduced so I couldn't recall Victoria and Ross crossing over much. I get the impression from some dialogue on Thursday that they had a one night stand or something.

    I took it more as Victoria just being nice and reaching out to Ross.

    It's looking more like drama over having a baby is going to be what sends Adam away to the jungle.

    Hannah?

    Whoa! You had snow already!? We were a perfect 80 degrees here today. :D It's been a heavenly November so far. (Weather-wise, if not national election-wise.)


    Thursday's double bill was a rare treat for me--one episode featuring four of my favorites--Ross, Robert, Aaron and Finn. It was really nice to have some Aaron/Finn interaction. (Loved the Kylie discussion.) I'm enjoying Finn's storyline with the guy in the coma.

    Yeah, I got that too, I wonder if @Canon knows what happened.

    I just found it odd, but then again I haven't been watching long

    I started off well by getting the first letter...


    This reminded me of Alexis and the music forum :D
