DISCLAIMER: SPOILER ALERT
Please be aware of you have not seen this series before watching this. I break down the story line in the three episodes aired. You’ve been warned not to read this unless you have seen the series already! However if you choose to read this then you do it on your own accord!!!!
I discovered this webseries through a friend who posted on my social media page. The video clip peaked my interest because of the scene and context of it. The scene is from Season 3 on the British couch that Mel and Liz make out on. That scene came from the Red Lovers UFC Twitter account.
We approach the first season as an adult approach of a on set connection that turns into a development of something irrestible yet complicated tease. The beginning storyline talks about love at first sight even if you belong to another, you can’t be helped by being drawn in by what Mel says to Liz and the way that Liz looks at Mel by the conversations they have. You can feel already an emotional attraction that grabs you in and does a pull tease effect. Liz has that effect that draws you in, and by the way she looks at Mel. You can feel there is an gradual tease without you being aggressive that you crave more. You can see Mel getting drawn in although she is bi, her thoughts are drawn in her connection with Liz. You get a sense she’s curious by it all. It feels like Mel is stuck in two different worlds trying to figure out where she’s happy in the end, but conflicted. You can feel it by her actions and reactions of her time with Liz.
By the end of Season One, there is a sense that this could be more development and attraction of love coming through Season Two.
In Season Two we see Mel and Liz’s relationship develops more physically and emotionally. It gets deep whenever they are near each other and despite their own personal difference and complications along the way, they endure it
We later learn on that Mel is pregnant with a child by her husband. She is challenged by her love for Liz. There are challenges by not telling her husband that she has made out with Liz multiple times.
Throughout this we see that Liz although makes out with other women in different episodes we see it feels loveless. We feel for her that she is now attracted to Mel. Liz’s lesbian friend says that Mel who is married to a man is a challenge and warns her that it may be difficult to keep her, but she tells her that she is up for the challenge. We see Liz teases Mel by the body postures, leans and states that we see Mel kiss her and reacts multiple times throughout the episodes and they both give into the seduction of attraction they connect and feel.
We can feel that Mel is reacting to Liz’s confidence. In all honesty who wouldn’t want to kiss and make out with someone who is confident like that. Seriously Liz is really good at the way she comes across to others but especially to Mel we see they both are challenged by the urges and tensions everytime they may be around each other or even far apart. It’s irrestible to stay away.
You know that their connections are true where they trade roles in one episode and it is too powerful to stay away from. Mel’s husband discovers closer to the end of the season by Liz’s ex when she sees her as they are walking.
When confronted by the relationship we see them argue and then silence throughout two episodes. When Mel gets a phone call she urgently leaves and a decision is made that she stays with Liz. Mel doesn’t return to her husband’s place and stays on with Liz at the end.
By Season Three, we see that Mel’s and Liz’s relationship grows more and more by having a place together. We see their emotional and physical experiences are constant. When we then get interrupted by her husband showing up at her door to see how the kid is doing. We see Liz exit.
We also see the return of Mel’s friend and husband in the scene. Mel kicks them out and difficult by pushing them out of the house when she finds out that she loses the baby. Now I am not sure if it’s because of how much physical activity she had with Liz. Who knows? However she tries to kick out Liz, she stays and lays with her in bed until she gets emotional distraught and finally pushes her out and away with the end scene Mel laying in her bed alone and Liz crying in tears walking back late to her apartment.
It feels like a cliffhanger of endless possibilities of how Season Three ended and makes us wonder what state of vulnerableness with that ending.
So many emotions makes us wonder what the next steps of Season Four which will be shown in 2018, hopefully they get answered?
Will their love will bring them back stronger both emotionally and physically. Will it be enough to hold on? What will happen with Mel’s relationships with everyone she connects with?
Will they fall apart? Will Liz be there more stronger to bring them back together to deal with Mel’s lonely emotional state to help her and will it be enough to comfort her like a partner will?
Until 2018 we won’t know until then…
Overall Personal Impressions
I give this webseries a 10/10. But if I could I’d give this webseries a 20/20.
The story line through the acting and written sense I love alot because it’s a relationship between two actresses and their vulnerabilities in the emotional and physical sense of attraction that connects them to one another. Also, how it addresses homosexuality and heterosexuality in a mature way of challenging a person’s love of who they choose to love. It’s a maturer aspect to be strong enough to stick around even through a tramatic and emotional breakdown like we see the characters experience.
