Fans of the King Family, yo
I love Carl! He is so great. He used completely the wrong word, and wanted to call the police, and probably shouldn't have gone into the Woolpack, but he didn't shout, didn't storm around, didn't make threats. Just quietly, 'can I have a word?', 'I'm not calling you a liar, but I know he wasn't with you', 'I'm sorry', and oh. He is wonderful. It's quite painful and sad, because he didn't have anything to do with it. He wanted to call an engineer. And still he is ostracised. They all are.
I kind of don't know who I'm rooting for here. Because everyone is clearly grieving, and Jimmy was in the wrong, but they've done (and continue to do) such a good job of making the Kings interesting, sympathetic characters that I just hate the whole village for how they're treating them, and want them to die too. Scott especially, though that's neither here nor there. I wish I'd liked Dawn a bit more, so that I could at least be interestingly torn, even. Instead of feeling like my favourite characters have done me a massive favour.
I liked Matthew wanting to go threaten Jean, of all the inappropriate actions. I liked Grayson giving them legal advice too. I think he fancies Carl. Though I think most people do. I've daydreamed that one of the Sinclairs probably would though, because Carl is a bit closer to them, in his attitude to wealth, than the other Kings. And everyone else is poor! It makes my slashy heart sing. I hope it won't just turn out to be Grayson double-crossing them as revenge for Matthew breaking up Sadie's fiance's wedding. I love my boys.
At any rate, with the village shutting them out, I'm seeing a big, insular pulling-together for the Kings. As a survival tactic, if nothing else. Also, I didn't realise Mary King's grave was in Emmerdale. That must have been hard to move away from. But nonetheless, the Kings are going to have to practically fuse together on this one. Which is good for my Kingcest leanings >:) It helps that they keep randomly losing their fiancees too. Oh boys, boys, boys. What are you going to do next?
