Often I miss the dialogue in certain “contemplative” (read: the characters sit around murmuring about issues instead of the usual shouting matches) episodes because I’m laughing so hard at the obvious extras inserted as friends and co-workers.
My favorite is Elodie (wtf is up with her name?), who seems to exist only to be Heidi’s sounding board. It’s like they’ve got magnets in their heads — the moment Heidi glances at her, Elodie’s eyes are trained on her. “What’s wrong? How was the paty? What did Brent do?” And it’s never even just logical work issues. No, they’re chattering about Jordan or Spencer (who are equally abusive… kind of scary); Heidi’s spats with Lauren or Audrina; parties…
Then of course, Elodie got recast from Sympathetic Coworker to Victim to Backstabbing Beeyotch. Gawker does the best justice to this “reveal”, so check out their recap here.
Bless you, Elodie.
