Offspring { Please Come Back Patrick Reid }


Did you catch the preview of the new season of Offspring this week?

Season five hasn't even started, and already I find myself quietly crying over the preview. How beautiful was it. And the most adorable and sweetest of babies (who even looks a little like Patrick). And the Proudman family. Billie. I still recall her line in the final episode at the pool where she says to Nina, "I'll cover you. If you can't love this baby, I'll love it until you're ready." Gorgeous. All of it.

With or without Patrick, the show will always be amazing. And as much as I love Billie, my girl crush on Asher Keddie, as herself in real life, and as Nina will continue. But what I really want to know is, where are you Patrick? And please come back. Even if it is a Bold in the Beautiful style resurrection from the dead. I seriously won't mind. Maybe you have just been off hunting for bears again. I will happily forgive the complete lack of plot line. No questions asked. No explanation necessary. Just come back.

I don't know what to expect, or how I'm going to feel about this upcoming season. I can't imagine Offspring without Patrick. It's like a little bit of grief that I'm still learning to accept and live with (yes I know, he isn't a "real" person, thank you caring husband for reminding me). This season is going to be a tear jerker. The playing with the handmade rocking chair. All the missed moments. It will continue to be the only show, where no talking or disruption of any kind is allowed while it's on, excepting the ad breaks.

In the meantime, while I patiently wait for mid May to come around quickly, all I think I can realistically hope for, is that Nina's constant daydreaming continues throughout this upcoming season. So that I can see Patrick a few more times. Preferably without his top on. Or smiling. Exactly like this.


Hope I'm not asking for too much.

Any guesses on what Nina (and Patrick) might have chosen to name their daughter?

Linking up with Life, Love and Hiccups and Maxabella Loves for their Weekend Rewind.

  1. Nawwww.... I'm with you. Except, I think that maybe this is just the cue needed for Chris to come back. I mean, really, I've always been team Chris. I did grow to adore Patrick and I'm super sad he's gone. But, I think Chris could be the rock that Nina wants... and needs in her life.
    LOVE that you found the bear skin pic *heartthrob*

  2. Sorry, you lost me at the blog title. I, ahem, have never watched an episode of Offspring, ever. But, what on earth is that bear doing in that photo?

    1. Well one positive is that you've saved yourself the emotional roller coaster that was Patrick's passing Kate!! The bear was a daydream/fantasy of Nina's (the main character).

  3. Oh Carla, I hate when we get so engrossed in a show and its' characters, then they just abandon us without a backward glance! I do love Nina, but have to say Billie is my most favourite x

  6. I saw that preview this week too and it had me in tears. It might be a little bit too full on me, but I'll probably have a look anyway. I've already been bawling my eyes out this week at Love Child :)
