Deconstructing “DOOL” from March 18 – 22:

The theme of the week is eavesdropping and the storyline focus was mostly on the same six or seven players. Viewers are complaining about the lack of pizzazz. Many are still watching out of habit and boredom rather than the need to know what happens next.

Jenn, Dan, Chloe.
During this week’s break-up, Daniel told Jenn, “I’m sure Chloe told you I didn’t reciprocate.” Jenn confirmed, Chloe did tell her he didn’t. Later, in the cabin, Jenn claimed not to know anything about the kiss, so what was Jenn talking about that he didn’t reciprocate? His feelings?

Once again, Jenn was unable to think for herself and the troops rallied to do it for her. It was Kristen to the rescue – that’s a phrase you don’t often hear – when she, not Jenn, asked if Daniel did the diva. When Dan realized Jenn had a “Three’s Company” moment, he seemed overjoyed and ready to get Jenn back in his arms but didn’t he tell her literally five minutes before that maybe she wasn’t ready for this relationship? That it was too fast after Jack and that she’s been finding fault at every turn with their relationship because of that? If that’s the case, nothing has changed so why are they back together?

Chloe’s tenacity is admirable though she needs a new hobby. It’s time to let go, not come up with a diabolical plan to drive a wedge between Dannifer. She went from desperate to cray cray on Friday’s episode which is both exciting and frightening.

It’s easier to see how Anne can justify at least a small bit of her hatred for Jenn. After all, Her Royal Hortonness took off from work in the middle of the day to mope over a man at the Horton cabin on Smith Island instead of doing her job. Maybe Anne’s the one picking up her slack. Her hatred of Abigail seems to be only because she’s the evil Jennifer’s daughter. An “elitist little snob” though? I don’t see it but it doesn’t matter. Anne entertains in any scene she’s in. Love her or hate her, there’s always some feeling toward her!
