    Thoughts on 2x06 aka iBuild a Team

    Gonna jump right in and say that the episode did not disappoint. The pacing was done right and the plot was both entertaining and essential to so many aspects of the show. I know Josh Peck is only set to appear twice this season but I’m hoping he becomes a recurring character who’ll show up about 3-4 times a season.

    First, let’s talk about the main plot. I think it was good of the show to address the business of the characters’ lives. With Freddie’s start-up taking off, we really should ask if he still has enough time to help Carly with the web show. It has slight parallels to the original when they were trying to get help from others and the dynamic just doesn't seem to be working out. To add, even though Sam was not explicitly mentioned in the episode, I like to think that the importance of her presence in the iCarly team was hinted at. The team was always mainly the trio, so with them down to two, it really is more difficult for Carly and Freddie to brainstorm and have balance amongst workload.

    Second, the subplot. Though really entertaining, unlike 2x05, I did not particularly enjoy this ep's subplot. While I did like to see it be a bit focused on Harper, it was simply all over the place. I think Harper deserves her own main plot soon enough because of how interesting her life is (from a trust fund baby to a barista to stylist). The mention of Dutch gave me a thought that she might eventually come back, which is exciting to see. However, Millicent being reduced this season is overly disappointing. I wish to see her have more agency like she did in season one eps—the one with Gwen, the Sunshine Girls subplot, and her helping Spencer convince Freddie in the finale.

    Third, the callbacks to the original show. From the very first scene we saw The Sack! Again, Sam wasn't explicitly mentioned in the episode, but minor details such as these somewhat serve as manifestations of her presence and how the characters are remembering/thinking about her. I have to give it to Nathan Kress for fighting to keep the claustrophobia callback. Details like these were woven so neatly in the show in a way where old fans like me would have a fun time with recalls but new fans won't necessarily have a hard time understanding. Also, I liked that Mandy mention. I wonder if we'll ever see her again?

    Finally—and I know y'all are waiting for this—let's talk about the progress of romantic Creddie. I love how things are being taken slowly. It seems as if Carly doesn't really have intense jealousy yet, which is okay with me as I want a build-up. On another note, it was good to get to see Freddie's side of their situation. So far, we have more hints on what Carly feels so it is interesting that despite the maturity and solid platonic relationship Freddie has with Carly, he still feels minor jealousy with specific aspects such as iCarly.

    Now I'm not saying that Freddie necessarily feels jealous in a romantic sense, but iCarly is a familiar safety net for Freddie. Career-wise, he'll always have it whether Kevin fails or not. Love life-wise, and I am gonna steal this insight from someone on YouTube whom I forgot, the show was technically built by Freddie. He built it not only because he saw talent in the two girls who eventually became his best friends, but also because of his intense crush for Carly. That crush he had eventually turned into genuine love (both platonic and romantic), so his attachment to the show has a lot of factors and layers. We can see this hint through the tarot bit which, although was slight entertainment factor, showed a lot about Freddie. I still don't know how their romance will play out, but one thing's for sure, we have already established groundwork for the intense drama.

    To end I just want to say that I'm really excited for what's to come with the show. Adding to that, my sincerest apologies for this late post. The elections in my country were in play and the presumptive results took a toll on me. Side-note, if you've read up over what's happening in the Philippines, please do. The whole world must know how the situation is right now.

    “Look, as long as you two are enmeshed, Spencer will never have a meaningful relationship with a woman. Trust me, I wrote the rules, which you can hear about on Trust Me, I Wrote the Rules, available wherever you get your podcasts.”

    “Now, hold on a second. McKenna, you may be a gorgeous, wealthy, best-selling author and TV personality with a beautiful smile and illustrious hair...”

    “But...”

    “Yeah, and a great butt, but you’re wrong. Maybe I haven’t had a meaningful, romantic relationship, but I raised the best woman I know, my sister.”

    “Aw, Spence. I feel seen.”

    “And if Carly really is a ‘helicopter sister’, well then, I’m the pilot inside of her.”

    “Babe, no.”

    “But what about all the things you said on Brother’s Day about me getting in the way of you settling down?”

    “Carly, I chose to spend those years raising you. I don’t regret one day of it. Besides, I was five ‘man-mosas’ deep at brunch. I could have said anything. Like my real age, which again is 32.”

    “Yeah, 32.” - McKenna Donatacci, Spencer and Carly Shay, and Harper Bettencourt (iCarly, Episode 2.5)

    Hey Morgs!

    Thanks so much for your kind words about my thoughts!! You and me on the delusional statements about ships. It’s not to say that I don’t have my moments but I prefer to break things down than jump to conclusions. Again, thank you!

    I loved hearing your thoughts about the character arcs. I believe that ep was really about character growth and did not absolutely fee like a filler episode at all.

    As for the Pearl thoughts, I really hope too that it’s not the latter situation you mentioned. I’m so sick of TV shows having to villainize the love interest before the endgame/main character. Not every relationship in our life will be bad so I don’t see the point of doing that in every sitcom. Sure, it adds drama but it’s tiring! I also don’t like how the other half of the endgame couple/main character sabotages the relationship. It just feels wrong and villainizes them too.

    But yeah, I’d love to hear your thoughts on what could happen next? I’d probably see your answer after watching the latest ep so spare no detail on what you think could happen!

    I'm the same with having my moments, hell I'm all over tumblr going "oh em gee these two are made for each other" but when it comes to the actual canon of the show I like to take a step back and think about where everything is realistically heading.

    On the topic of being sick of TV shows villianising love interests I 100% agree but also wanted to quickly say this is how I feel about seddie. It seems like everyone thinks it has to be a creddie vs seddie debate and I just think we can acknowledge that Sam played an important, fundamental role in his life and that's beautiful and special and that meaningful relationships simply aren't always endgame but that's ok. This doesn't make revival series relationships or OG relationships mean any more or less... but that's a soap box I should probably get off of!

    I'm actually totally stumped as to what could happen next after seeing the most recent episode. Every thing just felt so platonic. I mean yeah, I gushed over how cute and flirty they were in that final scene when they were high... but they were high and they've always been touchy and flirty with each other, I think that's just an indicationof how genuinely close and comfortable they are together and not a sign of deeper feelings. I'm starting to wonder if I set my hopes up too high for these two and they aren't going to progress much further forward? Idk, something big is going to have to happen in the next few episodes to shake things up. Because right now I feel like they're only getting together if I go ahead and write my own canon divergence fanfic.

    i'll be honest i really dont want carly to have a epiphany in the last episode about freddie unless they have a really good explanation/back story like she had feelings for him that she wanted to act on after coming back from italy but he was already married idk & then they turned platonic completely. i just need them to up the sexual tension a lil bit like give us adult drama. They're cute & healthy 100% but i need more s2 epi1 moments.

    You know what… You’re right.

    It’d be really lame and unexciting if Carly just simply realizes it. There has to be a BIG reason. It has to be some pent-up aggression of some sort? Until now, I really haven’t given thought about what One Big Blow Catalyst™️ will be but all I know is that it should be something absolutely RECKLESS.

    ok so wasn't it stated in some summary that carly was seeing freddie in a good relationship for the first time & thats what causes her to revalv( this makes sense coz if his marriages were miserable whereas now he's actually suceeding & growing with pearl so she's scared she'll lose him forever unlike his other relationships after josh makes her realise how much she needs him?)

    Really now? That’s interesting. I haven’t really been deep into the iCarly orbit with S2 unlike in S1 because of uni and a really crucial national elections coming up in my country. Needless to say, that’s intriguing to know but also I don’t really trust descriptions online since most of them can be quite… Misleading

    i mean if sam was in the revival i feel like it would be so hard not to give into the temptation of exploring it jen & nathan have great chemistry & the popularity of it would be crazy like even logically with the cast being more pro creddie i think just for the sake of fans they would give in. plus who doesn't wanna write like 2 characters that are opposites ends of the same coin its shame they got ruined so much with the physical gags & crappy writing. i just hope revival creddie is done well

    I mean… True. On a side-note, Nathan has REALLY good chemistry with everyone he works with. He has really good chemistry with Jerry Trainor so Spencer x Freddie scenes are always something to look forward to. He has really good chemistry with Jaidyn Triplett so their father-daughter scenes are incredibly heart-warming. His chemistry with Laci Mosely? Phenomenal! The soulmate thing was hilarious. He also has really good chemistry with Miranda Cosgrove and Jennette McCurdy so no wonder there was a fan war between the ships! Even his side love interests and other friends they all seem genuine because of how well he can work with actors.

    If Jennette really did come back (and I voiced this out before) I really wanted them to not dip into the triangle anymore. I’d like the three of them to just take a jab at the ship wars from time to time as a joke between three old pals. You can view more of my thoughts on this here. But again, if there was a ship they’d really take a deep dive into I really think it’s be Freddie just because Miranda Cosgrove has huge creativity control and Jennette McCurdy expressed how she wanted Sam to be gay.

    This isn’t me being anti-Seddie, okay? I’m just truing to be level-headed and realistic about this. As big as Seddie was to the fandom, I really think it was more of Dan Schneider who was dragging the ships unnecessarily. There wasn’t any proper storylines but hey! I didn’t ship Creddie before, if they could make Seddie work in the revival if Jennette was in it then why not?
