Morning, Team Villy!
We've got some really heartbreaking scenes coming up with Billy, Victoria, them together and even with Chloe there right at the end.
Amelia was amazing. I don't care about anyone says. I don't. I was barely holding on & Victoria's reaction and the way she tried to keep her composure but broke down sobbing uncontrollably gutted me. You will what I'm talking about there.
I love that through every phase of Delia's life, Billy saw one woman at his side. VICTORIA. She is and will always be his constant IMHO. That's how I see it too. I get why people are like, "Um, where's Chloe?" I was one of those people until I realized this was the future through BILLY'S EYES & his alone. I'm sure in the coming days, through her grief, Chloe will imagine the future her child could have had. Chloe is JUST LEARNING her child died but she will get her perspective. I'll be miffed if they don't. I'm already miffed that she didn't get to say a final goodbye to her child.
Billy will become a very haunted man with this for the rest of his life. I can see him pushing Victoria away but I can also see her stubbornly pushing back. All the times Villy were in trouble, we never saw Billy waver and never give up and be Victoria's rock. Now, we have the chance to see Victoria turn around and step up to be Billy's rock as his wife as the Abbotts rally around him. I just realized that this is the third Abbott death in seven years, since John's in 2006. Damn.
People are saying Johnny should have kicked it. NO. That is still Billy's child and it would have hurt him JUST AS MUCH. I adore Delia but no. Her baby brother's life shouldn't have been traded for hers.
Um, I for one, am excited that Reed is coming for a little bit. It'll do Victoria's heart good to have all three of her boys with her. And Billy loves Reed just as much as Victoria loved Delia. Besides, I heart Max Page. Now would be an excellent time to bring Thad back as JT too. But they won't. Boo. I know Reed will be sad. Delia was not only his friend but his stepsister. He'll be sad for his mom & stepfather as well.
I love that there was the foreshadowing of a little girl in those flash forwards. The first was through Victor in 2010, now again, in 2013. Let's hope that the third time means it happens for real. It will be bittersweet because of the Delia sized hole there, but a new life -- a life that Billy and Victoria have dreamt of making -- always brings new hope in tragic circumstances.
I have it in my head that Delia's little hand is wrapped up in the bigger, warmer ones of her grandfather. And she and Katherine are trying on an infinite amount of rings and drawing on golden streets forever. And she's even met Colleen.
Oh. One last thing.
I hope that the show has Nick share a scene with Billy. Nick is the only person, IMO, that truly understands losing a child too young & the darkness that comes along with that pain. Nick knows that firsthand so I hope that they do share scenes, not because they're in-laws but because Nick, in his way, can help Billy when it comes to a father's grief.
Stay loving Villy, you guys and ignore the ones that clearly don't. They only come in here to cause trouble and rile you guys up. IGNORE THAT.
This is a pro-Villy thread. If they took a wrong turn and straggle in here only to stir things up, that's on them.
Have a great day, Team Villy
