why deny it any longer? you want to know. you don't want to wait. and we're going to tell you.
Listen, this information was correct as of the date we got it. Often, the writers will change things, if only slightly. And sometimes the stupid network honchos at the WB make them edit scenes out so they can squeeze in more commercials. Anyway, the basic plotlines will remain intact, but don't kick our asses if there are small detail changes. And yo, these are our spoilers from our own double-secret sources. They're not from Wanda or Keith or any of those people. If you want to cite them elsewhere, please give proper credit! It's only fair. You can share if you want. Just give us our due. We like that.
Noel Did It Again (airing 11.14.01)
Meanwhile, Noel is acting like a dick. I know you are
shocked. Instead of passing along job listings to his advisees, he is hoarding them for
himself. He also arranges for a couple of flaky freshman girls to move in with Felicity
and Elena without telling them. What a guy!
The Storm (airing 11.21.01)
This episode is called The Storm because theres a really bad storm going on in New York City throughout the episode. Im guessing its also supposed to be a metaphor for the state of Felicity and Bens relationship. Before you get your hopes up, I should tell you that Im pretty sure Noel doesnt get struck by lightning and killed. I know youre lamenting that missed opportunity as much as I am.
Ben is devastated by Felicitys infidelity. He breaks up with her, moves his stuff out of her apartment, and gives her back his key. Felicity tries not to cry. Normally, when Felicity is in a situation where shes crying, I feel sad for her, but what the hell did she think was going to happen when she screwed Noel? Anyway, Javier and Meghan try to cheer her up.
Luckily for all of us, Noel is distracted by his latest fling. Hes found a new job in graphic design and now has his own designs on the bosss daughter. Richard (who is so desperately trying to get Noel to move in with him, I am starting to believe that he is in love with him) tries to warn him of the perils of such a relationship, but Noel has never been one to let anyone or their advice get between him and sex with a hot babe, so he ignores him. What do you think the chances are that Daddy is going to walk in on them doing the deed? Maybe if were lucky, itll turn out that shes underage and Daddy will call the police. I know, Im dreaming again. Hell probably just get fired.
Elena and Trevor are working on some sort of project together. Trevor is way into Elena. Elena is hesitant, but Im betting they hook up, because we all know that Elena cant go that long without getting some.
One of Felicitys students begs for her help with a project he was supposed to turn in, but didnt. Felicity is way too distracted by what is going on with Ben to care.
Bens mom shows up to take care of his dad, who is back on the liver transplant list. She has forgiven him and wants to take him back. Ben cant quite comprehend her level of forgiveness. I really hope they dont draw some major parallel between Bens mom forgiving his dad and Ben forgiving Felicity. I mean, I know what Felicity did was bad, but its not like the lifetime of alcoholism and abuse his mom is apparently forgiving.
Felicity writes Ben a long letter, in which I can only assume she begs his forgiveness.
Meghan is really hard on Ben for the way he is treating Felicity. I guess Ill have to wait to see it, but it seems to me Ben is justified in just wanting to stay away from her for a while. He probably cant get the image of her and Noel fumbling around together out of his head. Ewwww, now I cant get it out of my head either. Yeah, hes totally justified.
Because Ben is god-like in his perfection, he agrees to meet Felicity for dinner. Felicity tries to apologize and tells Ben how much she loves him. Ben says its too weird and Felicity wants to know what is so weird. Im no genius about relationships, Felicity, but Im guessing Ben has a hard time reconciling all that love you have for him with the fact that you screwed Noel on the rooftop of his building.
Felicity thinks Noel can help out with her situation with Ben. Im not sure how in the hell she thinks Noel can help. Is he supposed to convince Ben to take her back? When will Felicity wake up and see that Noel cannot solve all her problems? Hes the cause of all her problems, dammit!
Sean is like the only person who is trying to cheer Ben up. Ben tells Sean he wants to forgive Felicity, but he just doesnt think hes like his mom. Ouch, this comparison of Felicity to Bens dad is pretty harsh, but I guess I can understand how Ben is feeling. Ever the optimist, I am going to take it as a good sign that he at least wants to forgive her. Damn, he really loves her. Poor, dear, sweet Ben.
The Felicity gang gives thanks for all the great things going on in their life. Im guessing Ben isnt really feeling that thankful. You know, since his mom is getting back together with his dad, who abused her for years, and his dad is dying, and he just found out the one person he thought he could trust screwed someone else. But its a national holiday, so its time to celebrate!
Felicity and Elena host Thanksgiving at their place. Pretty much everyone is there, except Noel. Even Ben is there! I dont know about you, but I find this weird, considering everything thats happened between him and Felicity lately. But anyway, the two of them basically look at each other longingly when the other isnt looking. Oh yeah, and Ben has brought Lauren along. I think shes trouble. I dont want her taking advantage of Ben while hes vulnerable.
Meanwhile, Noel is off by himself, in a bar. He meets an attractive older woman who buys him a drink and invites him up to her room. How does Noel manage to snag all these beautiful women? I just dont get it! Well, this particular woman may have ulterior motives. Lets just say that Im pretty sure Noel ends up handcuffed to the bed and without his money. Hee! Revenge is mine, sayeth Litigia!
Javier is rude to Ben at Thanksgiving. I dont like how many people are being rude to Ben because he hasnt welcomed Felicity back with open arms just yet. I mean I know all these people want them to be together, but Jesus, give the man some time to get over the fact that the love of his life had sex with someone else! Is that so much to ask?
Felicity gives a speech before they eat, talking about how much it means to her that they all are together, since its probably their last Thanksgiving together. She talks about how they all mean everything to her. Ben cant look at her. Poor, dear, sweet Ben.
We dont have a title for this episode, but its another sad one, mostly because Ben and Felicity still arent back together. Theyre all gonna be sad until theyre back together! But maybe, just maybe, we get a glimmer of hope.
So, Felicity and Ben are working together at Dean & Deluca. Ben plays the hero and saves her from a rude customer. Awwwww, hes so damn sweet. Then, in another dose of Ben perfection, he apologizes for not having called her after Thanksgiving like he promised, then asks her how she is doing. I swear to god, he gets more perfect with every episode.
Elena tries to hook Felicity up with a graduate art student named Owen, but Felicity is not in the mood. She also doesnt like Owen because he never cleans up the studio. Man, Felicity would hate me, because I am just about the biggest slob on the planet.
Javier meets a woman named Rita in his drama class. She has a major crush on him. They make plans to go to A Streetcar Named Desire together. But Javier decides to play cupid again, and tricks Ben and Felicity into going to the play, by inviting each to go with him. When they realize what hes done, they decide to watch the play anyway. Afterwards, Ben tells her that as hard as it is, they need to move on. Felicity agrees, but as she walks away, we can soooo tell that Ben does not really want to move on.
Meanwhile, Noel is in counseling for depression. His life is all a mess, blah blah blah, who the hell cares. I hope this shrink can make Noel see that all of his problems stem from his selfish, self-righteous attitude. Instead, I think he tells him he should be on medication. A good (over)dose of morphine would do the trick! Thats just me dreaming again.
Ben comforts Lauren, who is conflicted about whether she should get back with an ex-boyfriend who was trouble. Great, just what Ben needs. Another woman who cant break off relationships with abusive men. I do not like Ben spending all this time with Lauren. Shes trouble!
After Ben tells her to move on, Felicity decides to ask Owen out. I'm sure that's gonna go well. He will never be able to equal Ben's perfection! Never!
Fire (airing 12.12.01)
Theres a fire! Felicitys life hangs in the balance! Will she survive? Im just guessing that since the show is named after her, that she will. But the writers have surprised me before, so you never know.
Felicity is determined to get into Cavallos art seminar next semester, so shes working on a bitching portfolio. She needs one more awesome piece to include and searches for inspiration. Finally, she finds it! Id tell you what her inspiration is, but thatd spoil the fun!
Sean and Meghan are working on selling the shirts with socks for sleeves. Meghan is not nearly as into it as Sean is. She is quickly distracted by the arrival of her fifteen-year-old sister, Lila, who is five months pregnant. Lila is basically in denial about the situation, but Meghan plays the responsible, loving sister and helps her to deal with it. Maybe dressing like Jackie O has turned Meghan into a more sensitive soul.
Noel is starting his own graphics design business, since hes been such a loser at getting (and keeping) a job. Sean wants to go into business with him, running the business side, while Noel does the creative stuff. Any storyline that forces Noel to spend more time with Sean and less (or better yet, none) with Felicity sounds good to me!
Ben and Trevor have a big O-Chem test. Theyre understandably nervous. I dont know for a sure, but I have a feeling our dear, sweet Ben does just fine.
Felicity is working like mad in the art studio, full of inspiration, when a fire breaks out somewhere in the art department. Noel, who happens to work in the same building, learns of the fire and its origins and worries about Felicity. He races up to the art department, where he finds Felicity trapped inside the studio by the flames. Oh no! What will happen! Felicity cant die!
Obviously, Felicity doesnt die in the fire. It looks like Noel saves her, but Im not going to think about that. And even if he does, who the hell cares? So, he doesnt want her to die. That doesnt make him a saint or anything.
Double entendres abound in this seasons winter finale! Between blind dates and liver transplants and Ben and Felicity together againplease!!!perfect matches are everywhere.
Bens father is in desperate need of a liver transplant. As luck would have it, a matching liver is found but a huge snowstorm in New York prevents them from flying it into the city! Hasnt Ben been through enough?
Javier and Rita are going on separate blind dates and theyre not going well. What happened with Samuel? Apparently, Lionel Richies advice didnt solve all their problems. Samuel and Javier were like the one stable relationship on this show! What am I going to do now?
Bens dad tells him that being with the one you love is the most important thing in the world. Ben stands out in the snow and has a When Harry Met Sally moment where he realizes that when you know who you want to spend the rest of your life with, you want the rest of your life to begin as soon as possible. He goes running to find Felicity! Yay! Ben runs! And hes going to find Felicity! It doesnt get any better than this, folks.
Noel and Sean are business partners in some graphics design business. They are trying to get a guy who owns a sporting goods store to hire them to build a website for him. It doesnt look like Noel and Sean make very good business partners, because theyre always fighting. Of course, Sean is always fighting with his wife, too, and that seems to work out okay.
Bens mom is apparently also a match for the liver transplant. I dont know much about medicine, but I think that she is able to donate part of her liver to her husband. It is his only chance. But there are risks involved. Since Ben has his dads healthcare power of attorney, and his dad isnt competent to make the decision, Ben must decide whether to accept the transplant from his mom. With Felicity by his side at the hospital, he reluctantly agrees.
Felicity keeps Ben company as he waits during the surgeries. Things go well with Dad, but Mom is in trouble. Ben is filled with regret as he realizes he may be responsible for losing his mom in an effort to save his dad. Hes got enough to deal with, dammit! Dont give him one more thing to feel guilty about! At least Felicity is there for him. Thank God she is there.
This is the winter finale episode, so there must be some sort of cliffhanger. I have no idea what it is. As long as it doesnt involve Felicity trying to choose between Ben and Noel, Ill be fine with it. I cant take another one of those.
