The Lizzie Bennet Diaries Episode #94 "Revelations":AKA: FINALLY!!!
So in ep. #92 Jing got their happy ending(ish) as it was more of a new beginning than an end, and in ep. #93 we got to see the lovely Charlotte again, all happy things.
A few hours ago, the newest episode of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries went up, and while the internet blew up far less than it did last week after the reuniting of Jing, today's episode had far greater consequence to the story. Today marked the beginning of the end folks, today Lizzie found out just who took down the website.
Interestingly enough, instead of Lydia letting it slip about Mr. Darcy's involvement in the saving of her reputation, ala Pride and Prejudice, our darling LBD Lydia makes the conscious decision to inform her sister of Darcy's involvement, because she feels it is the right thing to do.
Side bar: Can we take a moment to appreciate how devastating it was to hear Lydia admit she went looking into who took the site down in the hopes that it was George. That she had thought maybe he had seen how badly he hurt her and taken it down because he really did love her. Despite everything he did to her, she was still holding out hope that he loved her. I can not even begin to describe how awful that makes me feel for her. I'm glad they mentioned that she is in counseling and how she said talking to people helps. I really admire that after the Powers That Be over at LBD opened the whole emotional abuse storyline, they didn't just sweep it under a rug when it was no longer needed to further the plot. I appreciate that they are showing that there is a lasting effect to having that done to someone.
We can all agree though, the most important thing to come out of today's episode is now Lizzie KNOWS that Darcy was involved, and now she can allow herself the most important thing any person can have, hope. Maybe now she can allow herself that little bit of hope that Darcy's feelings for her haven't changed since last October. Now if we can just have Darcy find his little bit of hope that her feelings have changed, which as much as I would LOVE having "Lady" Catherine involved in this, if Darcy is watching her videos he'd have to be BLIND not to notice, then we can bring everyone's favorite couple together.
