I wish you could’ve known me when Rex was alive and my kids were young and everything was the way it was supposed to be. I think you really would’ve liked me so much.

Seriously, I loved the two of them so much.

Season 2 was so wonderful and painful to watch as a Bree stan, and this was my favorite part of it. I’m so upset about how it ended. If I think about it, I’m fucking upset about how ALL of Bree’s relationships ended on the show. I’m not a fan of Tripp, but I’m still glad the series ended with her in a happy, healthy relationship.

I too loved Bree/Peter and was upset about how it ended, because it was too rushed and I while I loved Bree and Andrew’s ongong conflict, I found that in some instances they made him too much of a mustache-twirling villain. However, I sort of expected Bree and Peter’s relationship to end badly, because,well, a huge part of the storyline was that it was inevitable that they would become attracted to each other, and it was impossible not to ship it, but it was also so very. dangerous. They were both so lonely, damaged and hurting for a connection, but that very connection was something they weren’t ready for because of their baggage (which ironically was what brought them together). It was incredibly compelling as a viewer, partly because you were always expecting the other shoe to drop…

I have epic levels of bitterness when it comes to other Bree plots and relationships (I might even become a little scary when discussing Bree/Orson, because they were my OTP and one of my favorite fictional couples ever). I have not watched the last season yet (full disclosure: I fled the show when I realized Bree and Brian Austin Green were having the exact same dialogue about re-painting the house Susan had with Jackson when they hooked up. I’m not even an OTT Susan hater, but I disliked how formulaic and interchangeable everything had become.), but I’m sort of happy that Trip is Scott Bakula. He is so likeable that, if I ever decided to watch, I think he could make me buy a relationship in few episodes, if the writing helped…the problem is, the writing on this show had stopped helping way before I left…

You are right, shipping this was like throwing yourself into a relationship you know would never work, or letting yourself fall in love with someone unavailable. But their connection was sweet and heartbreaking and the ending hurt so much. I agree that they made Andrew way too heinous in the second half of the season. I get that season 2 was all about Bree hitting rock bottom and every imaginable bullshit had to happen to her, but it was so much more interesting when you could sympathize with both sides around late season 1/early season 2. Bree is really such a wonderful character the show didn’t do any justice. Sadly this is how I feel about most of the character and narrative arcs on DH.

And ugh, don’t tell me about BrOrson! I shipped them like crazy, they were the Peter/Amanda of the show for me (paralells I could go on about for ages). When Orson returned as a villain, I stopped watching for a month and the only reason I marathoned the remaining eps was that I knew this season is the last one. It was such a cheap and horrible plot device, and I hate it when shows treat their characters with no respect (even ist problems only come second to this on my list of the biggest turnoffs). Orson deserved a dignified exit after 4 years as a regular, just like their relationship deserved a more tasteful resolution.

I will forever love the early years, but the last 2 seasons left me with a bad taste in my mouth, and as much as I love Bree, the show ranks way behind Melrose Place and Everwood among my all time favorites.

magpie's nest: Revenge Season 2 Interview [Spoilers]

ladydelirium:

TVLINE | Do you have anyone in mind yet for who might play the Clarke matriarch?
KELLEY: Well, I know the specific qualities that they’re going to need. I like an actor that can be very surprising. This [character] is going to have some deep psychological issues, so we’re going to need…

So… Emanda’s mom is Kimberly Shaw with a Bree van de Kamp facade?

Ok,at this point if they don’t cast Marcia Cross (who has also already worked with Emily Van Camp and must be in good terms with ABC, having put up with Marc Cherry for eight years without drama :P) I’ll take it as a personal offense! XD

@drshaw,what do you think?

Omg it has to be her!

This show is perfect and my favorite rn, but having Marcia on it would make me SCREAM with excitement every Thursday morning.

'End of the line, psychos' ;)

Ugh this was Bree’s best episodic storyline ever

besides the creepy beginning and ending

I mean Marcia Cross hasn’t had a storyline revolving around a pool since 1997

specifically skinny dipping in a pool

(other than a few funny accidents on DH of course, with her clothes on)

gawd this was so much fun

I planned to watch the latest episode of Once Upon A Time

but I think I’ll just go to my dvd shelf and put on a good ole’ Melrose Place episode instead
