I watched last nights episode of Greek today to see what I had missed the night before. I know when I live blog and spend 50 minutes of an episode waiting for my Cappie and Casey moment that a lot gets lost in translation. So I always make sure to see what I missed. Some times more then once. Today was one of those episodes.
Usually my re-watching episodes is to watch the Cappie and Casey scenes over again and I did that this time too but because of the discrepancies in storyline I spent more time going what? then actually enjoying the little, tiny next to nothing Cappie and Casey scene we got. An added plus was getting a Rebecca and Cappie scene which I actually watched 3 times to the Cappie/Casey two scene thing.
Lets start with the obvious. Beaver’s name. This episode it was Walter but in the episode about Rusty’s parents coming to town his name was Charles.
The last scene with Casey and Beaver Casey mentioned that money has always been an issue between Cappie and Evan and their friendship. I have finally watched every episode of this show and I don’t ever remember money being any issue.
In the camping episode it was noted that Cappie got a lot of scholarships to pay for school. In this episode he is living off his parents? I know they mentioned a inheritance from a farm but the money didn’t dry out a few months later.
Lets talk Casey playing dumb and not knowing she is the reason Evan and Cappie don’t get along. Really because I seem to remember several scenes where Casey felt guilty for them not being friends and she tried to re-unite them?
‘I’m not with Cappie or Evan anymore. It’s over? She told Cappie in the first episode of this season she would give him a chance. She has also had discussions with him about the subject. Now they are telling us it’s over?
I realize that different episodes are written by different people but would it be to much to ask for someone to have the history of these characters at hand when writing a script? I am sorry but when Casey said she and Cappie were over I felt cheated. EVERYTHING that Cappie has tried to do, well it’s like it doesn’t even matter to Casey. Last weeks episode Casey made a point to say she stayed for Cappie. This week “it’s over”
Over analyzing aside I should have enjoyed this episode a lot more then I did. I love Beaver and Katherine as individual characters and them getting together as a couple (out of the blue) could be so amazing. Would have been so amazing 2 years ago instead of as an afterthought in the 7th to last episode of the series.
Maybe in a few years I’ll look back and enjoy this episode more. I was really looking forward to it.
Found another big discrepancy. Not in the Beav episode but during the first episode of season 4. Casey made a point to say she did not actually tell the guy at the law school what Joel did. The part is in this video yet a few episodes later the whole school knew about the case .
