I think the accident is fake.. all part of Coleman's plan


Remember Coleman meets Jeremy in the bar and says he has a plan but we don't hear him tell it. The next scene we see Jeremy, he comes to rat out Yael.. Too easy.

Also the show is not known for its violence.. The only death that occured on set was accidental and they are quite terrified that they will be discovered and be sentenced to prison (at least Rachel is).. so Jeremy cannot just waltz in and casually imply that he murdered two people. If they do not report this, they are complicit in yet another murder.

Finally, the scene wraps up with the news presenter saying that the condition of the occupants have not yet been confirmed.

I think Coleman is stepping up his game.. He really means to burn Everlasting down..

Also, notice that Jeremy who was booted off before, has now warmed his way back in, the very last shot being the evidence.

I really believe this is all part of Coleman's setup and Jeremy is on the inside to carry his part out.

Sorry, but I think the scene where Jeremy finds out about what happened to Rachel is enough to kill your theory. He drove them off the road or w/e and they are dead/maybe one is barely alive. If there is no evidence he did it, then it was just a young couple in an expensive sports car that drove off the road. Like there will be consequences for the 4 of them with each other and in their own minds, but it is very possible they suffer no physical consequences.

reply

Exactly! Why would he then have that reaction to Rachel's past if everything was part of their plan, and no one else besides those three was in the room? I mean that would be a good twist, but I just think here are holes in that theory

reply

You guys are right.. I completely missed that scene. That's a bummer, it would have made for some interesting showdown.

You know, honestly I find that this scenario is actually, quite possible. I didn't even think about it but now that I do, it has my gears spinning. It is so hard to know what is going on in Jeremys head these days because of the complete 180 they did with his character this season. I am not complaining but I did like him a little better before. He was a lot more balanced, yeah he was jealous and hurt but he didn't act like this at all before. It is obvious he loves Rachel, so much so that is is toxic he has this idea of them together and this I don't know, image in his head of who Rachel is from their history. She has hurt him so much and kind of toyed with his emotions that is just messedan him up. I love Rachel because I think she is truly a kind person she just is dealing with an illness and isn't dealing with it properly and it makes it hard for people to handle her. I do not AT ALL condone Jeremy hitting her by any means but I don't think he is an awful man. He is just as messed up now as the rest of them. He was trashed, out of his mind etc etc. Like I said he never should have layed a finger on her but she isn't an angel either. I always go back though to where I think he does just love her and was very hurt and went about displaying it to Rachel in the completely worst way. I feel like he was kind of shocked and I don't know completely, thrown through a loop a after hearing about the abuse in her past. He felt for her and maybe even thought he understood, really, why she is the way she is.
Sorry I rambled so much there but that is a great theory and I do honestly think it is possible. I am just thinking that after all this happened and he learned some stuff about Rachels, traumatic past and issues there. For him to hear, soon after that news, Coleman saying all of that awful stuff about the woman he loves/loved I think he may have really went for it and did set up the accident with Coleman and Yael. It makes sense to me but like I said I like your theory too because it makes me feel like I don't know Jeremy character like I think I did.
Again sorry that I rambled and typed so much.

To what end? I can't think of a scenario where a fake accident would work out better for Coleman than his stated plan of going to CNN with the story.

Remember Coleman meets Jeremy in the bar and says he has a plan but we don't hear him tell it. The next scene we see Jeremy, he comes to rat out Yael

There's a scene in between where Coleman explains about Yael and Jeremy going to CNN and reveals to Jeremy that Rachel was locked in mental institution and raped as a child.

Thanks.. I missed this scene. Its my fault.. I developed this method of watching UnReal by skipping through the episode's timeline just to skim off the basic story line because of how insufferable the show has become. However, I went back and watched this again and the scene where they explain their plan makes my theory handicapped.. Also, you can't miss Jeremy's reaction that stares us right in the face also along with the background music all indicating that he maybe would not want to go along with the plan after all..

I still have ought with this though:

1) That they would allow a character kill or seriously cause bodily harm. It is unlike any of the show's characters.. none was developed sufficiently to make us believe they could do something so extreme.. even Jeremy.

2) They are currently sitting on an unsolved murder; why would the show callously add another POTENTIAL one (if it does end in either the characters getting killed). The fact that they kept quiet when Jeremy announced it and the final shot proves that the Everlasting producers were at the moment willing to accept this new evil to cover for an old one..

3) Why does Jeremy feel that he has still got a shot at Rachel.. The series completely dismantled everything to do with that relationship by giving Jeremy a 180%. We hated him and he got booted off then all of a sudden he is back again.
Also, why does Chet think he's got a chance with Quinn but I digress.

Jay is the series's real hero IMO. He believed from the start that the platform should be used to sell real love and he got that at the end. Rachel gets a pass for trying to right her wrongs at the very end but she still needs a lot of work. Quinn remained a monster to the end.

Coleman just feels like a one season character/villain to me

Slight correction: Mary's death wasn't an accident, she committed suicide. The reason they covered it up is because the old producer set her up to bring drama which was in the form of the ex-husband. She suggested Mary stop her meds because she thought she'd ensure drama but she didn't mean for Mary to kill herself.

reply

Didn't the producer actually tamper with her meds? My recollection is that Mary took her meds, but that they had been replaced with something else; i.e. Shia has opened each capsule, emptied the contents, refilled them with something else - supplements, maybe? - and Mary took what she believed to be her legit medications.

Yes that's right. And that's what they covered up, if not along with what Rachel also did, for sure entirely. She was primarily responsible by messing with her meds. That's also why Quinn didn't allow her on the set for a while afterwards until things died down. She had to hide away in a hotel. I can't remember if she got fired or not.

reply

she committed suicide


Slighter correction: she did not commit suicide anymore than someone commits cancer or someone commits car wreck. She died as a result of suicide. Suicide was once considered a crime and people who saved were taken to jail hence the committed label this keeps the stigma of mental health problem...

reply

There was more to it than that, when Mary didn't stop her meds the old producer swapped out her meds so Mary thought she was still taking them.

reply

I thought it was strange the TV news girl said "There are no reports yet on the condition of the occupants", usually they say "the couple was rushed to the hospital in severe condition" even if it's not true just to have the audience get moved. Coleman with his contacts may have asked to say a generic thing so that Quinn and the team know of the accident, but they don't even say if one or two peoplewere in the car.

reply

Coleman is not that cunning. Him and Yael is as good as dead. Jeremy probably messed with his car

reply

That's exactly what happened. I felt t coming the whole time, he cut the brakes. Didn't you see end of their scene the car just kind of kept speeding during a curve? I'm pretty sure that's what happened. He killed them for Rachel


. Rachel needs to die. Quinn is just a horrible bitter old woman that also needs to die.

reply

lol talk about bitter. So I guess by your own standards you should be committing suicide right now.

So long
