What I’m Watching: Emily in Paris

Emily in Paris: Season 3, Episode 6 “Ex-en-Provence” (B)

The incestuous relationships on this show do seem to come in handy since a career-ending development for the newly-formed Agence Grateau was averted within seconds because Emily’s CFO boyfriend was working for the man Sylvie was previously having an affair with, who had just the place that he would obviously be willing to let them use for the big event. That wasn’t the end of it, of course, since Laurent showing up as an invited guest to the event was the last straw for Eric, who probably made the right decision in leaving since Sylvie and Laurent were quite cozy and happy together within hours of him having departed. Things have been going well enough with Emily and Alfie that her forced Michelin dining experience with Gabriel is introducing old ideas that neither of them have been thinking about, even though they should be given that Camille is back in Paris actively contemplating extending her affair with Sophia after making it clear that she does love Gabriel. I can’t imagine that even the affable chef who can’t fathom that his kids wouldn’t like his cooking would be okay with her fulfilling her needs in a different way since he’s not all that available. It’s going to ultimately affect Emily’s relationship with Alfie more since she’s deliberately withholding from him starting with the receipt, making something out of nothing that’s going to bring him down from the high he’s currently on after driving that insanely fancy car back to Paris at top speed on those winding country roads.
