I just watched the preview. I was in middle school during these years. I was hoping for Cruel Summer to be on the trailer intro, but Garbage will due. Stupid Girl was more like 1995/96 I think. I thought the lead blond girl was Ava Phillipe, Reese and Ryan's daughter. I scrolled down to see the cast and was shocked it wasn't her. They could be twins.

I'm out of the loop in terms of Froy, although I've seen several threads on here dedicated to him. Is this THE Froy in the series? Is he an out gay IRL? He plays a good straight guy if so and I do think he's cute, but I don't find him worth endless threads though. I thought Brandon Flynn played a very believable straight guy in 13 Reasons Why. It seems like Gen Z can look past someone's sexuality and allow an out, gay actor to play straight without any issues. That's some progress. I also believe the racial integrations in Cruel Summer. This feels fairly accurate for the 90's. There was maybe one or two black families in a nice neighborhood and there might be a black friend in a social group. Did Jessica Biel write this? I'm impressed.

by Anonymousreply 2205/09/2021

I don't know if that's entirely true. I think it's more true for actors based in the UK who work more in TV (Russell Tovey, Andrew Scott, Ben Whishaw etc.). Brandon doesn't seem to be in demand post 13RW.

Was Annabelle another girl in the basement or that seems unlikely. Could should have split and disassociated in to Annabelle to deal with the abuse. Is it linked to her mom? They really made Kate look rough in 1995 from her mini-me version of Reese Withspoon in the 93 sections.

by Anonymousreply 3805/10/2021

I bet Kate had an obsession with the teacher and stayed there willingly or something like that. And Jeanette saw her there so she made up the kidnapping. Kate’s mom is a bitch, so it could have been to get away from her.

by Anonymousreply 3905/10/2021

They didn’t speak after she dumped him one year prior. It’s obvious when he sees her and she dunks him that is the first time he’s seeing her and her him, based on both their expressions and reactions.

He was also drunk and probably saw it as the perfect opportunity to be honest with her, while he still has her in front of him.

Olivia Holt is gonna be a star. She’s very talented and has “it”. You naturally gravitate toward her in every scene. She’s also very pretty.

The scene where Jamie apologizes, there is a brief moment, when he says “me and Jeanette kissed” that her eyes widen in a very natural way, where she looks surprised. But you can tell it’s not by the fact they kissed, she knew that, but it was she was shocked he was admitting it.

I agree that the scene between Jamie and Kate was touching. Froy uses his mouth a lot for emotional scenes but he also has a sad puppy quality to him in his approach that makes him endearing during scenes he has to be sensitive or vulnerable.

We finally see the moment the Vice Principle began grooming Kate, which is fantastic. What a fucking creep.

There is only one episode left? There is no way they can wrap this series up next week. This was a good episode, but there are a lot of loose threads dangling. Whoever posited that she might have willingly been a captor might have been right. As gorgeous and as rich as she is, Katie seems to be drifting alone, even in 93. Her mom's a whore, her stepdad who she loves has a daughter who hates her and she will always be first. The VP is the only one paying her any attention. Jeanette was too much of dweeb in 93 to be too evil. Also, we haven't even touch the catalyst for Jeanette's "she's all that" makeover. Will it be the scrunchie. I am enjoying this show. It has a "13 Reasons Why" feel to it, which was genius the first season, mediocre the second, and I couldn't make it through the third. This might be best as 2-3 seasons max.

by Anonymousreply 7805/12/2021

Mr. VP probably reinforced the basement windows because he noticed someone (Jeanette) kept breaking in.

Kate imagined the relationship with Mr. VP and threatened to ruin his life when he rejected her advances. I wouldn't be surprised if he never touched her and she's just really mentally ill.

Kate likely killed Mr. VP and the local "good old boys" covered it up for the Wallis family.

by Anonymousreply 7905/12/2021

I noticed that Jeanette's mother is rather obsessed with the Wallis family. I'm thinking she is disappointed in her own family and surroundings. I would totally believe she was thinking of dumping Jeanette's father for Kate's stepfather. (That was the story Kate's whore mother told.)

I am also shocked that they didn't cancel the boyfriend for his domestic abuse tendencies. He didn't just slap Jeanette, he charged out his front door to the end of his front yard to punch a hole through her head.

The boyfriend is a mediocre actor.

Jamie apologizing to Kate made me forgive him for lying in the first place (what kind of asshole makes someone think they’re crazy Instead of just being honest?). Froy was lovely in this scene.

I could definitely see 1993 Jeanette being in marching band lusting after him during similar practice alongside the team and over the weeks transforming into the 1994 Jeanette and catching his eye.

Nerdy girl in marching band lusting after the popular quarterback. I doubt that plot has ever been attempted before in the history of YA fiction or TV. I hope they try it. But I would advise this show to keep Froy away from all attempts to throw balls, in the future.

It's true! Being an out gay in the late 90's, I was stuck with these types of chicks as friends. On the plus side, they were good friends that weren't afraid to befriend the loser gay who had no friends. On the flip side, a lot of these girls were very damaged as well and could be very toxic, just like this character.

Other than Kate, I remember the girls being a lot thinner in high school in the late 90's. Thin was very in, I remember. I think it was around 96/97 that we had CK1, the heroin chic girls like a young Kate Moss, that boyish asian chick that scissored with Angelina Jolie. Janette would have been considered a fattie by 90's popular girl standards and even Kate becomes chunky after the trauma by 95. This could have been more an LA thing.

You got to give it Chiara and costume and makeup, she must chant to and will herself to be short and pudgy during ‘93 and ‘95 and then long and sleek in ‘94 and she pulls it off, in not quite physically, but how she portrays herself and her attitude in the performance.

Froy has the built of a baseball player, but his character is not the typical HS jock. He did a similar thing in Initiation and Teen Wolf.

He needs to play gay eventually. 9-11 Lonestar has a fantastic gay couple. He could play a TK sort of character.

by Anonymousreply 16405/15/2021

With Chiara in 94, they do tighter shots. There were a few body shots in the last episode and I though she looked huge. Originally I was trying to figure out if maybe they shot the years independently and had the girls (Kate and Chiara) slim down for 93/94 and then had them bulk a little for 95. It's probably just angles, lighting, and styling. When Kate looks her roughest, everything has a blue hue to it.

And there was a scene of Kate pulling apart a show ribbon and I thought to myself, don’t go to far destroying all those, you’ll need them again for the room in an earlier shot. And then she stopped after pulling a few streamers off, lol.

Is it possible the VP has taken Kate hostage for other than sexual reasons? The show hasn't shown him being sexual with her when she's in his house, have they? Or even trying to be? Has he realy been "grooming" her in the earlier time frame, or is it something else? Has it been suggested he might be her father? Blake Lee is 37.

Also is it possible the mother of Jeannette had Kate kidnapped? Based on her feelings about Kate's mother or family?

When I read the plot description of the show originally, I thought of Wanda Webb Holloway, from Channelview, Texas, who attempted to hire a hitman to kill the mother of her daughter's junior high school cheerleading rival. Not the same story, but it had to do with small town high school rivalries.

He gave her a death stare and then quickly got them to pay the carnival game.

I may have mentioned this already, but a read an interview with Blake Lee and he said the last script of the series (where some things are revealed) surprised him a lot and he didn't see the revelations coming.

I'm guessing this will end up seeming like a show that had a fairly simple plot, when we look back on it, but by holding back facts and revealing them slowly, the simple plot will have been made to seem msyterious and complex . It even seems like that now. In a way, it's a gimmick. But well done.

She needed him dead for sure. And that’s the only way she was getting out alive. He couldn’t go through with killing himself and you know damn well he wasn’t letting her out, despite everything.

It was kill him or wait for him to kill you.

I see how the snow globe connects the three women, but I still don’t understand why it’s important to any of them Why did Mallory pack it in her suitcase?

Did they explain why the cops stopped by his house?

Ummmm maybe because there is a missing 16 year old girl and he knows her…

I disagree R444, but you are entitled to your interpretation and I am entitled to mine.

Nothing was or is as it appears in this show.

I just don’t know how you can interpret it your way after watching the scene and everything throughout the season… any grown man who thinks she can overpower and escape a grown man is deluded.

And who knows that he knows her?

R446, the cops told the media he died in a shootout. It wouldn’t look good for macho Texas cops if it came out that a lightweight teen killed Martin.

by Anonymousreply 45306/15/2021

Is r452 joking????

by Anonymousreply 45406/15/2021

Dying in a shootout is one of the oldest lies cops give about someone’s death by gun. That actually has happened in real life too

by Anonymousreply 45506/15/2021

Again R451, you’re entitled to your opinion as am I to my opinion.

Nothing in the season is what it appeared to be.

Him bring her principal or whatever he was isn’t enough to make the cops stop by.

by Anonymousreply 45706/15/2021

He was also friend to the parents… he even went camping with them, was at their party etc.

The mother went to see him when Kate didn’t come home. She went to him for advice because he became a friend to them.

Did you watch the show?

by Anonymousreply 45806/15/2021

R453 Is that (your 2nd sentence) what was said on the show, or are you just saying that? I doubt the police would take responsibility for killing a suspect that they found already dead.

by Anonymousreply 45906/15/2021

R458 Then why did they wait all that time before questioning him? Are they just really bad at their job?

by Anonymousreply 46006/15/2021

I’m with r458 on this. If you watched the show, everyone knew they knew each other. There is a 16 year old girl missing for over 100 days. They are now visiting nearby homes.

by Anonymousreply 46106/15/2021

R460 ok you’re just trolling now. Get off the thread.

by Anonymousreply 46206/15/2021

Did you watch the show R459?

There was more than one scene in the series when someone was watching the news and it was stated that he died in a shootout. Hence, the shocking revelation that Kate killed Martin.

by Anonymousreply 46306/15/2021

It was because the donut shop had been closed for renovations and they weren’t heading out until they got their dozens, R460. 🙄

by Anonymousreply 46406/15/2021

R462 Excuse me? Why don't you go join Jeanette in the psycho corner?

I wasn't the one who asked about why the police stopped by, so obviously I wasn't the only one who wondered why it happend. And if he was so close to the family it's a little strange they never even suspected him, and the police never suspected him.

R463 Yes, genius, I'm asking why the media or the cops claimed he died in a shootout when he DIDN'T and I still haven't really heard a good explanation. Police boards do investigate shootouts. There were no other signs of a shootout, no damage. The bullet that killed Martin was from his own gun, was there no autopsy?

by Anonymousreply 46506/15/2021

Oh good grief. Go to sleep R465. Tomorrow we’ll explain to you how ice cubes are made.

by Anonymousreply 46606/15/2021

Also, no one in the neighborhood saw a lot of police cars arrive, or heard a shootout, because there wasn't any. I guess they just saw the news report and didn'ty question it. Jamie and Jeanette also heard one lone gunshot.

by Anonymousreply 46706/15/2021

It’s too bad Abraham Zapruder wasn’t on the premises when Martin was shot.

Several people have brought up some simple, reasonable questions, and if the answers are so easy, then they should be easy to answer. Yet no one is answering them, so I assume y'all can't answer them.

Why don’t you write to Jessica Biel then, R 469?

That was awesome. They completely stuck the landing.

While I don't expect them to be successful, I hope Freeform gives Olivia Holt and Blake Lee a For Your Consideration campaign.

by Anonymousreply 47106/16/2021

R470 Why don't you write her and tell her your theory of why Kate didn't need to shoot Martin? I'm sure she would find it as fascinating as we did.

by Anonymousreply 47206/16/2021

R472 that person saying that says all I need to know about their mindset. Not sane.

Cops lie ALL. THE. TIME.

by Anonymousreply 47306/16/2021

R473 What was their reason for lying, in this case? To protect Kate? I admit I didn't sit down and memorize every line of the show, like some people here, and probably even missed parts of some episodes (!) but it's just a TV show. Anyhow, just curious.

R474 based on most of your comments throughout the entire show, I don’t think you watched at all.

R476 I did, but your opinion of what I do is of zero interest to me at this point. It's a fucking TV show, get off your high horse, Mary.

It’s a tv show that we are discussing because we watched it. If you didn’t you have no business on here.

I am watching again right now, and the scene where Kate kills Martin is actually very good on rewatch and a lot more emotional.

Don't leave yet R479. I am dying to know your thoughts on the last episode of The Sopranos and particularly on why the screen went dark at the end.

How do we know Tony died?

How do we know the lights didn't just go out in the diner because they hadn't paid their electric bill?

What does Meadow being a poor parallel parker have to do with anything?

by Anonymousreply 48406/16/2021

Sorry—The police don’t just assume a guy shot to death in a basement died in a police shoot-out. Especially when there was no police shoot out. What happened to the gun? Who names a gun?

Kate was guilty of murder (though perhaps she could get away with some kind of justification), as well as staging her own kidnapping. She got away with both crimes. I understand she was mad at Jeanette for stealing her boyfriend and life, and was feeling all sorts of guilt, but why on earth would she publicly accuse Jeanette of having seen her upstairs on the phone when that could only unravel her web of lies?

by Anonymousreply 48506/16/2021

This wasn’t a “sweep it under the rug” death. The case had extensive national media attention. The FBI investigates kidnappings. The fake shoot-out explanation would never work. They could have just said in the news report that he was found dead at the scene—an apparent suicide, though the cops would have known the truth. Stupid move.

by Anonymousreply 48606/16/2021

That ending -- wow! I did not see that one coming. Jeanette was savage.

The story of the South Carolina frat boy murder needs to be the next season.

by Anonymousreply 48806/17/2021

I want season 2 to be a new story. I hope they don’t cave and try to continue this story somehow. It’s closed.

I want it to be about a gay being murdered amongst a group of friends.

Did Mallory know it was Kate she saw in Mr. Harris' window?

by Anonymousreply 49006/17/2021

No. We see what Mallory saw. She saw the back of her head, never her face, and then when Kate saw her it was so dark Mallory couldn’t see who was there, she could only see the reflection from the light outside on the window.

I watched this series. It was a B quality series by a D list Network. Sheesh, ladies. Brilliant this and Stick the landing that. You're spewing boilerplate hyperbole worse than Rex Reed.

by Anonymousreply 49206/17/2021

R492 has stated her boundaries.

by Anonymousreply 49306/17/2021

It was great. And the quality is no lower than most other shows.

by Anonymousreply 49406/17/2021

R492 is basically correct, though I did like the ending.

The whole premise is deeply flawed. No one would take Kate’s accusation against Jeanette seriously without details: How and when did Jeanette see Kate? These details could never be provided because they would reveal Kate to be complicit in her kidnapping and in murder.

by Anonymousreply 49506/17/2021

I liked the show against my own expectations, but R495 makes a good point about the basic premises of Jeanette becoming some national persona non grata due to something she may/may not have seen through a blurry window. You kind of hand to suspend disbelief with that one.

by Anonymousreply 49606/17/2021

Omg please. We’ve seen many people be vilified with no proof to back it up at all. This has happened in real life.

by Anonymousreply 50006/17/2021

I just watched it two more times at my sisters place. She didn’t watch it yet so we (my two sisters and me) watched during dinner. One likes to talk too much as we watch stuff. The other cried during the Martin/Kate scene.

And then later when her fiancé came home from work he wanted to watch it so we did again lmao. And everyone was shocked by the ending. They all praised the finale and felt it was done well. Sometimes finales suck. This one did a good job at answering everything and closing the story. They liked the moments where things are tied together, like when Jamie and Jeanette hear the gunshot during the premiere, and we see if was when Kate killed Martin during the finale etc.

by Anonymousreply 50106/17/2021

For some reason I'm so obsessed with this show!!, and am sad it's over. The finale really delivered. It was soo satisfying. And I did not see that coming.

I also want season 2 to be a completely new story but I hope they keep most of the same cast. I forgot Jessica Biel produced the show. Well done. Especially the music.

by Anonymousreply 50206/17/2021

R496, agree that was a weak plot point but they still made it work.

by Anonymousreply 50306/17/2021

It could be fun if they introduced a new group, but kept sporadic reference to this bunch.

Hearsay of what happened to them next would keep us guessing, and if the main story stumbled, we’d pull through with that.

by Anonymousreply 50406/18/2021

I want this to be like The Sinner, which Jessica starred in season 1, where each season is an entirely new cast and story.

No need to continue this story now that it’s closed.

I want season 2 to be set in the 70s and a group of friends is being investigated for the murder of one of their friends after finding out he is gay. It causes rifts and tides within the group etc.

by Anonymousreply 50506/18/2021

But do they keep the split timeline? Seems that it’s the signature element, but could be tough to keep up.
