What I’m Watching: Emily in Paris

Emily in Paris: Season 2, Episode 9 “Scents and Sensibility” (B)

Camille may have clarified right away to Alfie that she and Gabriel weren’t together, but going with Emily to cheer the boys on sure seemed like she was rooting for her boyfriend. It does seem that Alfie and Emily might last, even if the stability of their newfound relationship was nearly undone by Luc blabbing to Alfie about the Gabriel drama. Pretending to suddenly not be able to speak English when he realized what he had said was humorous and very much not effective. My prediction about Madeline becoming a more visible presence has already come true, and not telling Sylvie or Emily that she was coming was only the start of a rocky landing. Emily didn’t learn much about the culture she was coming to and ruffled plenty of feathers, but she has no real power aside from her social media accounts that reach the right people. Madeline, on the other hand, is the boss, and sitting on an exercise ball at Sylvie’s desk cemented that she very much saw their dynamic that way. Talking to Antoine at the event was bold, and it was the typically silent Catherine who clued her in to the potential consequences of charging him more now that his affair with Sylvie is over, as well as Sylvie’s current relationship with Erik. I definitely see Sylvie getting fired or possibly demoted and Emily getting more responsibility, which is not going to go over well. While Benoit reacted very poorly to the news of Mindy’s heiress past, he seems to have come around to it and expressed sincere feelings for her in song, whether or not that means they’ll be able to continue dating or play together.
