I don't care what she says the Jason thing clearly did a number on her because she was much more sure of herself back then than she is now. I hope this season doesn't end in an engagement because it just truly seems that she is chasing the ring not the husband....that won't be pretty some where down the line.
    I am hoping beyond hope that she regains who she was when we first met her towards the end and in the last ep says "screw it" to the engagement and proposal and the whole deal and instead decides she made a mistake in letting Reid go. We get a tearful confessional that she doesn't need a ring as much as she wants a partner and goes after Reid. At least in my ideal world but I truly hope in the end, TPTB don't throw her under the bus like her predecessors starting with Brad. She seems to be cooperating and doing everything they ask so I would hope her edit in the end is flawless. Please?

    As far as her on Jason's season, I agree I never saw her this insecure as we are seeing now. It did shake her confidence and she became all flirty and cute instead of the strong, opinionated girl we saw with Jason. I hope she finds her again because there are men out there who will love her for herself.

    Well you never know...maybe the boom operator had something sparkly dangling from the mic---oooh, look a butterfly---could be very distracting.

    It could be good news for Reid fans, it might be pointing to Yes for Reid and No for Kip and No for Ed.

    Bottom line: Kip crying is not pointing to Ed.
    I seem to remember them showing Jesse and Jason crying in the limo in the FRC previews. Everyone was trying to figure which one was heading to the FRC and which one was leaving.

    I don't think Kip crying is pointing to anything...
    could be Kip happy, Kip sad, etc etc... I really wish they would give us more to work with!

(I think) Reid is the type of emotionally giving partner who would give her a lot of support and comfort while she was trying to make her own friends and build her career up in Philly. Plus his family seems very close and tight knit so she'd already have a built in network with his sisters in law. Lol wow, I think I've thought about this more in-depthly than Jill.
    I hope you are right. After really watching her & Reid together I have began to pull for them but I don't see "happily ever after" here. Jilly seems to have a lot of self-esteem issues that need to be put behind her and Reid needs so much prodding for him to put his feelings out there that I can't see him constantly feeding her need for reassurance. Both issues could be a direct result of the show and its format (thus put behind them once they enter the real world) but I wouldn't stake much on that.

    According to the previews they plan to recycle more of Wes diary of the departed at us for MTA. I can only imagine what that will be like. Drinking, driving in circles for hours with AC turned off; I'm sure that Wes provided Martin with lots to chop, cut and paste edit - so disgusting! I really wish the head honcho's at ABC would NOT RENEW this show again. There is little to no reality here! I plan to skip most of it until the end of the show where I hope we will get some decent previews. Although, I could catch the previews later that Dreamer will have - so actually I don't have to watch any of it. Hmmmmm.

    Oh no! As much as I don't like Wes, he doesn't need to be put on the chopping block anymore I ALMOST feel bad for the guy. Almost.

    Kip could be crying for any reason ranging from sadness to exhaustion to emotional overload, to frustration that they've been driving him around in the limo for 8 hours and he just wants to go home. They showed both Jason and Jesse crying in the limo in the preview for Deanna's FRC---the viewers assumed Jesse was crying because of rejection and Jason was crying because he's such an emotional guy....but it was really that Jason was crying because of rejection and Jesse was crying because he was freaking out pre-proposal. Or maybe the camera guy was pulling out the guys' leg hairs one by one. I don't know.

    I think that's why she says she needs a strong man to put her in her place and take care of her. She probably realizes that she needs a lot of constant reassurance and affection and it seems that she's experienced that before only with strong, decisive guys. I agree that it's hard to see a happily ever after here, especially since she already let him go once, but I'm hoping that they can somehow work it out- haha hopeless romantic here. I think that if Jill feels secure with her partner, knowing he's completely there for her, she will have more self confidence in herself and will be able to regain some of the person she was before this whole crazy Bach/B'ette world engulfed her and started eating her alive. At the same time, I think she does like helping Reid make his own decisions and giving him nudges in the right direction. They both have their own problems but I really think that each one's brand of problems can be nicely complemented by the other one's strengths. At least, I want to believe it because on my screen, I have never seen any other couple like them but Meredith and Ian and Trista and Ryan.
