So, this bit was arduous to observe. Layla and Olivia have a posh friendship the place each of them have their very own flaws which have triggered them to harm one another they usually each know that they’ve. Their issues usually are not nearly Spencer. That could also be one of many sources of rigidity, however it’s greater than that between them. I’ve questioned earlier than if Spencer and Coop’s (Bre-Z) friendship might be salvaged, however what about Olivia and Layla’s? The approach Olivia claps again at Layla for coming at her in the way in which she does was fully legitimate as a result of Layla wasn’t actually there for Olivia as a lot as Olivia has been there for her, particularly in the case of her despair. Olivia’s character has all the time been the very best good friend that helps the folks she loves, even when it means sacrificing her happiness.
The problem that comes into play most with their friendship is a scarcity of communication and transparency. Female friendship tends to maneuver in direction of that route when roadblocks seem. If the basis drawback or rigidity will not be addressed head on, the buildup of it could develop into harmful. Greta Onieogou our bodies this episode with how she relays her feelings. The approach she carries herself reminds the viewer simply how a lot all of this has been affecting her.
After going by her despair and discovering a approach to deal with her psychological well being, Layla has develop into extra resilient and agency in the way in which she interacts along with her associates and particularly with how she is with Spencer. You can see that shine along with her persona this season and the way in which she owns as much as every little thing. She has a cause to be mad at Spencer for the way he determined to get along with her proper after he confessed his true emotions to Olivia in Vegas, when he was in a susceptible state. It’s legitimate.
But the entire Olivia/Spencer/Layla dynamic has all the time been complicated as a result of Olivia had her sights on him first, however didn’t say something. Layla even tried to have Olivia and Spencer get collectively in Season 1 in an unconventional approach however then realized that she wished Spencer as an alternative (whereas she was nonetheless in a relationship with Asher). So each are at fault in the case of Spencer, however their drawback with one another will not be solely about “combating over a man,” however like I discussed, it’s extra in order that they haven’t been in a position to talk and be sincere with one another.
