There is an article posted this afternoon in the Media Thread where the writer takes apart the Wes preview tape for this coming episode. She basically labled him Snidley Whiplash (going with the Canadian theme) and wondered who would be Jillian's Dudley Doright? So, it's still within the theme of the good guys (punctuated by Jake in Vancouver) versus the bad guys (punctuated by David in Vancouver.) Good vs. Bad had been a common Bach/ette theme until the past few seasons. It looks as though it has now made a comeback big time. In this season they have a damsel in distress who needs rescuing. One who says in PIs that both Jake (on their 1:1) and Ed (on their 1:1) are the sort of men she can turn her life over to..in other words, keep her safe and secure from the Snidleys or the Snidley situations of the world.
The good vs. bad theme plays out in black and white until Wes leaves, but what then? Who becomes the one who fails to untie the damsel from the train tracks, and who becomes the one to save her in the nick of time? The editing in Hawaii will have to be more subtle as all three guys are seen as good guys. You might think Ed jumps out as her savior because of her statement on their 1:1; however, that was said in Episode 3 before the Finale took place...so does his hero status remain intact, or do one of the other two rise to that level?
I think we have to wait for Hawaii to see who fails her and who saves her...it's still too early to tell; plus TPTB have to put Snidley Whiplash in jail once and for all.
