Many people are either getting fed up with Franky’s attitude or are still hating on her. I do believe that Franky is being Franky. However many things have happened this year. She has lost the first female friend she has ever made in an accident that she was loosely involved in. She is blaming herself. She was sexually assaulted. She is filled with blame, guilt, and anger. Though she is working on moving on she still has those underlying feelings. They are still there. She is focusing all her energy into helping Mini. Thinking that she can somehow erase the demons with the birth of an innocent. She is participating in a complicated relationship with Nick…I think knowing that it will not end well. She is putting all her hate and blame into Matty who has become her own personal outlet for her feelings. Liv calls Franky on a few things that even Franky is not sure about…her relationship with Nick and her involvement in Grace’s accident. She responds in anger.
I do say this though Franky needs to listen to the advice she gave Liv in Series 5.
“All that hate and blame, it’s toxic.”
Franky needs to come to terms that what happened was an accident. No one meant for Grace to die. No one meant for that car to flip over. She is not at fault and neither is Matty. It happened. It was an accident. I feel like Franky still holds that hate and blame inside of herself. On top of it she was sexually assaulted and never really dealt with it. That adds an extra layer of hate and blame. I hope that after all of this plays out she will let go of those toxic feelings and learn that Mini’s baby will not wipe anything clean. That only she can. She needs to wipe her conscious clean about the whole situation surrounding Grace. Then I think she needs to decide that she needs to think about what is best for her. What is best is to focus on herself with the knowledge she has great friends to watch her back. Meaning I think what is best for her is to leave Nick and leave Matty. Focus on her.
Mini is basically in absolute denial about everything. In many ways she is still in denial about Grace and on top of it she has another problem—pregnancy. She has denied her pregnancy and she refuses to tell anyone else unless she is forced too. She tries to tell people, but she always chickens out. She is not driving her life she is letting her life drive her. Things are happening that she cannot stop and she is reacting opposed to acting. I also have some really good advice for Mini and it actually comes from her. She was speaking to Alo in Series 5.
“Well…that’s what happens. But you adapt, don’t you? You look at what’s changed and you find a way to own it.””
She hasn’t found a way to own it. Yes she has gotten better since her episode, but at the same time the key players who could help her and support her are still unaware of her predicament. She has not figured out what to do and she is not owning the change that has occurred. She is still hiding it. She is also hiding her feelings. Her changed feelings for Alo and her feelings about Grace. Somehow Mini has turned into a character that is so filled with secrets that she is starting to become a bizarre absurdity. Not saying it is not understandable; however, it is time for her to own it. It is time for her adapt.
