The latest news about Love Island may be a shock, but it's not really a surprise.
In fact, the revelation that Caroline Flack had entered the villa late last night to announce that two of the participants were leaving immediately was completely predictable because it was exactly what the series needed.
The show was immediately outlined after re-pairing last Wednesday and then stagnated for the next seven days.
Here comes The Flack! The latest news about Love Island may be a shock, but it's not really a surprise
That was the night that Tommy Fury chose Molly-Mae over Maura – it seemed the most interesting, inflammatory aspect of this year's show.
It turned out that the & # 39; love triangle & # 39; clearly not what we thought (or were led to believe), judging by the way Tommy and Molly-Mae immediately turned into probably the last thing we had imagined: something that looked like a married couple – and a whole boring. (No fights, no straying eyes, no nothing.)
The fact that Tommy and Maura hardly gave each other a second glance – let alone flirting with the possibility of renewing their appeal – only supported the theory that the whole thing was an intention.
After all, when Maura stormed into the villa, it was (again) exactly what the show needed – to prevent it from dying.
Both she and Molly-Mae behaved like two shameless nymphomaniacs in heat for a week. And then stopped.
In fact, Maura & # 39; s queue with Tom came about because she objected to being considered promiscuous.
Stuff that was desperately needed: the show was immediately after last Wednesday's pairing and spent the next seven days stagnating
This was reasonable enough that at the age of 28 she only had a handful of relationships and & # 39; never even had a one-night position & # 39 ;.
But it is certainly not the impression that she or the producers of the program gave us when she arrived. (Ditto Molly-Mae.)
The net result of Tommy & # 39; s decision and Maura who inexplicably accepts it, gives it up and then simply moves on to the next & # 39; Tom & # 39 ;, is that the entire program has deflated.
Fourteen days ago, viewers had different pairs to be intrigued at least about:
Tommy & Maura versus Tommy & Molly-Mae were adjacent to moving – the equivalent of Burton and Taylor.
Joe & Lucie were the young romantics, jeopardized by his uncertainty about Tommy and controlling tendencies.
Amy & Curtis were the sweet, very suitable couple.
Michael and Amber were the will – they / they will not connect – who had to take the plunge.
Then we had the prospect of seeing if Anton, Anna and Yewande found the person they all seemed nice enough to earn.
Since Wednesday's re-adjustment, that is all over.
Nothing has happened last week.
Boring: Amy & Curtis are so domesticated that they don't serve any interesting purpose, while Curtis now looks a bit creepy
Maura and Tommy gave up and also took Molly-Mae from the mix.
Joe left and released Lucie – although, inexplicably, no man tried to combine her or even talked to her.
Amy & Curtis are so domesticated that they don't serve any interesting purpose, while Curtis now looks a bit creepy.
Michael and Amber have become a couple, but did nothing afterwards. (Not even a line, which in her case seems unlikely.)
In the meantime, the new trio – Tom, Jordan and Arabella – have been a disaster.
Far too much time was wasted on Danny & # 39; s & # 39; dilemma & # 39; choose between Arabella (the supermodel) and Yewande (the uncertain scientist who hadn't had a boyfriend for four years).
Jordan and Anna have made a link, again almost without effect and without real conviction.
As for Tom & Maura, the way he erased his writing book before he even got to the Hideaway all night confirmed only what viewers could see for themselves: that the entire relationship had no basis.
Anton remained single. So no change there then …
The only real friction was between Amber, Anna and co. towards Arabella – which looks more like Big Brother than Love Island.
Danny is so boring that even when he did it with Arabella, there was no chemistry and no interest.
The fact that NO of the other boys is even interested in the tall blonde, or trying to take her away from him, proves how pointless the whole thing has become.
Of course, speculation is widespread about the identity of the two participants who left the series – if they are indeed a pair (which seems likely).
But again, it doesn't really matter.
Tommy and Molly-Mae would be a big hit, but the fact that literally every couple is superfluous proves how much trouble this series has in them.
Love Island had to do something. In fact, it could easily get rid of the whole couple and just start over.
Non-matching: viewers can see that Tom and Maura's entire relationship has no basis
