Nancy Drew is at the midway point of its final season and that means more drama and heartache are on the menu at The Claw.
In an episode with a title like “The Web of Yesterdays,” is anyone surprised that Nancy Drew found herself in the past? And, of course, she was not alone. However, she was not with anyone from the Drew Crew. Instead, she ends up in 1972 with Tristan.
It was a very interesting experience for both of them, and it also led to a look at Nancy of the past. We all know that Nancy has a hard time dealing with her emotions and feelings. And after everything that has been going on with Ace, we knew that she was going to do something, that could potentially hurt him in the long run. And guess what? She did. Too bad she doesn’t know that she hurt him again.
After returning from 1972, and dealing with some of the complicated emotions that that experience brought up, we see Tristan and Nancy, having a special dance together. And, of course, Ace walks in on this. Now, Nancy doesn’t know this. So she doesn’t know that she has hurt him. But we have to say, he set himself up for this.
Nancy Drew is setting up a love triangle and that’s a recipe for heartbreak
When Ace walked away from Nancy, after being the one to convince her to try and break their curse, he set himself up to be hurt. He set it up for Nancy to try and move on how she does. We know that she jumps into relationships in an effort to avoid feeling her feelings. So it’s absolutely in character for her to be having some romantic, slow dance with a guy she barely knows.
Obviously, we want Ace and Nancy to be together. And we hate to see him hurt. However, of all the people who know her, he should know what she is doing. And he shouldn’t give up the way he has. That being said, that final scene with him letting the ferret go after all that work to catch it is almost heartbreaking. It feels like he is letting Nancy go at the same time. And we don’t want to see that. We want to see these two fighting for their love. But at the same time, we also want them to figure out the mystery in this town so that maybe they can focus on each other.
Honestly, we want to see Nancy Drew get herself together. (And yes, we definitely swore in our heads.) She needs to stop rushing in without thinking. She needs to start actually focusing on the things happening in front of her. And, she needs to stop wallowing in heartbreak and figure out how to fix things. Because there’s always a solution. And she knows that. We want Nancy Drew to be Nancy Drew!
