About Nemesis

I just looked up the plural of nemesis and I guess it’s nemeses or nemesi. I was just watching the episode “That’ll Do Pig” about Emily and her fight with Richard’s mom Lorelai. It hit me that everyone has a nemesis. Through much of the show, this was Emily’s role. Then comes along a woman who is basically Emily’s version of Emily. I guess everyone has someone who makes them feel small and belittled. I’ve always just thought of this episode as funny and a way to show Emily’s slightly hypocritical nature but it does say something about the human condition, I’m not exactly sure what, but it does say something.

    Seeing Emily and Lorelai the First banter is one of my favorite things. Emily is an awesome character..one moment I feel sorry for her, the next I can’t stand her. ๐Ÿ™‚

    God, I love the episode when Lorelai I is introduced ๐Ÿ™‚ It made me see Emily as a real, no longer one dimensional character. I haven’t always liked Emily’s actions (and you’re right, she’s slightly hypocritical) , but I think she’s one of the best characters of the show, mainly because the woman who played her is such an amazing actress.
