People are sobbing, and Mike is just sitting there, in his drunken haze, and smiling blissfully. I’m not sure if he will make it out of that party without doing something bad. Like confessing what happened. Maybe Paulo tells the others instead?

Also, that awkward laughter that tried to hide the fact that they all miss her. Christ, it broke my heart a little. I hope everything gets talked through at one point or another, because they need to do it.

Daisy and Sue, again, look absolutely wrecked. :(

I can’t tell if Mike is too drunk to process what they’re talking about, here. Or if he’s just passed out in a drunken stupor like a lightweight. :smirk: He seemed pretty upset about the whole thing himself after she was actually good and gone. Kinda hoping something slips during this party.

Lucy went through a lot of character development recently. She was beginning to open up and rely on her friends. There are also incidents where she protects her friends. A lot of people miss the massive character development that happens in between Acapulco and now. She stepped back and realized what she was like: she decided to change. I think that her friends miss the new Lucy: the one who can love Paulo and be a rock for everyone else. It is similar to Tessa’s situation earlier: must she be always judged for her past actions, or does she get another chance?

Also, I think I know what is going to happen here. Everybody but Abbey is drunk. Now they are going to have a massive argument about Lucy. Secrets will come out, and everyone will have a good cry. Then everyone forgets everything: except for the one guy who is not drunk. Now Abbey is keeper of secrets! Bets on how long he will keep them, anyone?

Edit: David also appears to not be drunk. However, I doubt that he is paying enough attention. He never does
