WARNING: SPOILERS, SPOILERS, SO MANY SPOILERS for those planning to watch in the future - including who the killer is!! The comments most likely will be filled with spoilers as well. So, seriously: click at your own risk.
Okay, so thanks to waxandstrings's wonderful suggestion, I decided to give this show a try. I figured it was only 13 episodes, so it wouldn't take me very long to finish it and it might be fun and exciting! I WAS RIGHT. I literally finished this show in a day and a half. It starts off a bit slow, but once it hits it's stride, it's so fast paced and keeps you on the edge of your seat. It's very unpredictable (for me anyway) as far as the killer~ is concerned and just really suspenseful and exciting all the way through. There's also tons of romance and fluff along the way for those who are into that stuff - myself included. And most importantly, it introduced me to my new girl crush Katie Cassidy - who I used to have this irrational hatred for idk. Basically, I'm obsessed with this show right now and more people on my flist need to watch it who haven't already. It's epic. As stated in the banner, I only really picspammed my favorite things about the show aka favorite characters and ships. So, without further ado:
|the bride: trish wellington.|
Trish grew up in the State of Washington with her parents and her sister Shea. She spent summers on Harper's Island with her family, where she met Henry. As children, Henry and Trish were close friends, and later, as a teenager, Trish began dating Henry. Trish worked at the Island's Maritime Museum, and Henry maintained boats at the marina, including the boat belonging to the Wellington family. Trish dated Henry for a long time in college, before she temporarily broke up with him and dated Hunter Jennings. Henry and Trish soon reconciled and dated continuously up to their planned wedding in September 2008. She loves Henry and wants to marry him but her father disapproves of Henry. They decided to get married on Harper's Island as an homage to their childhood.
SHE IS PERFECT. Like I said above, I always had this crazy irrational hate for Katie Cassidy and never thought she was very pretty: WHAT. I was so wrong. On a very shallow note, I couldn't help but stare at her FACE in every scene she was in because of how gorgeous she is. But also, she is so bamf and the best sister/aunt in the world! I pegged her as my favorite when she left her pearls on during sex in the pilot. HOW FIERCE IS THAT, OMG. She's so fab.
the groom: henry dunn.
Henry is best friends with Abby Mills - the main character, whose mother was killed years ago by John Wakefield and father is the town Sheriff. They've known each other since they were children. His parents' deaths several years back left Uncle Marty and J.D. as his only living relatives. Him and Trish dated throughout most of college and decided to have their wedding on Harper's Island. Henry acts as the survivors' unofficial leader, fighting the killing for most of the show.
Okay, if you've seen the show, you're probably wtfing @ him being here, but whatever. HE WAS MY SECOND FAVORITE until The Incident. I'm trying to be vague as hell here, because I don't want to spoil anyone planning on watching it soon and is dumb enough to be reading this. I'm also so very shallow - we've established this - and he's very pretty and is such a dilf irl js.
the flirt: chloe carter.
Chloe is one of Trish's bridesmaids and Cal's girlfriend. She is sexy, flirty, impulsive, and always looking for ways to live life to the fullest, and has a surprising curiosity for serial killers, including John Wakefield. She's an intelligent woman searching for romance and love. At first her relationship with her boyfriend Cal seems shallow; she's an outgoing flirt and has attracted the interest of both Sully and Marty. However, later events make it clear that Chloe's feelings for Cal are genuine.
This girl is so fun, adorable, sassy, etc! Right up my alley.
the outsider: cal vandeusen.
Cal is a doctor and Chloe’s boyfriend. He is a charming British outsider who doesn't know anyone in the wedding party, but tries to fit in with the tight knit groups. He treats Chloe like gold, and bought an engagement ring for her before entering Harper's Island. The other guys thought he was nerdy and didn't understand why Chloe ever saw in him - including Sully who had a monster crush on Chloe for years.
It took me a while to warm up to him, but when I did: OH MY GOD. He is so darn lovable and endearing. AND SO FUCKING PRECIOUS. I think it's actually impossible to watch this show and NOT fall in love with this man.
I loved them so, so much. They just had insane chemistry right off the bat and they're both very pretty people and idk. They were perfect. Emphasis on the past tense. I'm still very torn about their ~ending, but I DIGRESS.
Chloe & Cal.
Omg. First of all, THEIR DEATH SCENE. Honestly, it killed me. The way she literally didn't see a reason to live without him and her "you can't have me": dead. That's when you realize how much she really does care for him. At first it did seem sort of one sided and nobody understood what she saw in him. And he risked her life to save her!! Ugh, kill me.
1. Sophia and Cameron!!! I've had these pictures on my computer for years, but now they're seriously my new favorite pictures ever.
2. My 2 favorite (hbic) girls!
3. Katie and Chris irl: SO CUTE. And how they used to tweet each other? Omg. (1, 2, 3)
