Dietland Season 1 Episode 7 Review: Monster High

Note to self, do not tag extremely public places. 

It looks like the group known as Jennifer has gone even more rouge on Dietland Season 1 Episode 7 when a group of college kids is blown up by a suicide bomber. 

It's surprising the ones who created Jennifer didn't see something like this coming. While it started off with getting revenge on the men who have wronged women, it quickly turned into much more. 

Plum's Art - Dietland Season 1 Episode 7

Now you have women who are taking the name Jennifer to take revenge on men in general. It's easy to lump all men together in one group and immediately say they are terrible, but it's just not the case.

Did those kids at the university deserve to die? I imagine there were probably a few of them in the group who deserved a nice swift kick in the ass, but not everyone in the room deserved to perish. 

Plum's response to the bombing was rather appalling. It's terrific to see Plum embracing herself, but I don't want to see her lose her empathy as a result.

It's no secret Plum has had her fair share of terrible luck, and she deserves to embrace herself, but she isn't looking at the big picture. She's all about embracing the anger of the Jennifer group instead of the original message.

Cheryl said it best about Jennifer warping young minds. It wasn't difficult to see this group has evolved into something dangerous, but the people doing these violent things believe they are doing what is best. 

This is about Jennifer. How it has infiltrated campuses now. Warping young minds.

Steven's reaction to Plum's explanation of Calliope House made sense. Steven wants the best for his friend and wants to be there for her, but he also needed to provide her with a clear perspective on Calliope House. 

Verena And Plum Chat - Dietland Season 1 Episode 7

A lot of people will say Steven's words were harsh, but it also needed to be sad out loud. Steven doesn't want Plum to be a thin woman; he wants her to be healthy.

The biggest misconception about being healthy is people automatically picture someone thin, but it's not always the case. You can love your curves, but you still need to take care of yourself. 

Steven: Losing weight will turn you into better prey? How about staying fat will kill you?
Plum: Excuse me?
Steven: Look, Plum, I love you, but I'm gonna go hard here. You are not healthy. You are not well. I can't tell you how many times you have walked in here and huffed and puffed and I was terrified you were going to have a heart attack and die on my floor.

It's clear Plum went through something terrible when she was in college, too. There has to be a reason why she went on anti-depressants, and I'm impatiently waiting for the big reveal from Plum's past. 

Finishing Touches - Dietland Season 1 Episode 7

The frustrating thing about Plum's argument with Steven is the reminder of everyone has a battle they are fighting. We can respect Plum's anger while also appreciating what Steven is trying to say.

Steven doesn't understand what Plum has gone through, but he wasn't belittling her struggles, either. He just wanted what was best for Plum, and he sees Calliope House as the enemy. 

Speaking of Calliope House, it was shocking to hear Verena so angry about Jennifer. Verena wants to help women, but she doesn't believe in killing. 

Plum And Sana - Dietland Season 1 Episode 7

Verena always projects this strong woman, but there is something about Julia which just gets under her skin. Here's hoping we get more information on the relationship between the two of them. 

Verena did bring up a great suggestion about Plum creating art. Plum had dived into baking to try to take her mind off things, but it was high time for her to pour herself into works of art.

Was anyone else confused about Plum getting angry about not getting the deposit back? It's never been a secret once you sign a contract you generally don't get anything back. 

Plum Gets Angry - Dietland Season 1 Episode 7

At least Plum channeled the anger into art; though she probably shouldn't have done it in such a public place where she could get caught especially because the detectives would immediately assume the art had to do with Jennifer.

Of course, Dominic would be the one who would get Plum out. At least Dominic was trying to be honest with Plum about the night he was in her apartment, but he should have kept his mouth shut about not being able to get Plum out of his mind. 

Who else felt for Kitty when she was shopping? It's easy to say Kitty deserves the karma, but she did not deserve that treatment from Stanley. 

Dominic And Plum - Dietland Season 1 Episode 7

It's difficult for a woman such as KItty to let go of the power she used to have. She believed she'd be able to threaten Stanely to get her job back. Stanley now has leverage over Kitty. 

He knows what she wants the most, and he's going to do everything in his power to hold it over her head. Kitty has fallen so far to the bottom, and she doesn't know what to do with herself. 

I'm still on the fence about Plum contacting all of Kitty's girls. On the one hand, it's a fantastic idea because a lot of these girls needed to hear from a woman they could relate to on many different levels. 

Plum Chooses Happy - Dietland Season 1 Episode 7

On the other hand, this is going to bit Plum on the ass. There's no way Kitty, and Austen Media, are going to let Plum get away with this. Stanley doesn't like women taking control, and he's going to go through some dirty tactics to get Plum.

Now it's your turn to tell me what you think. 

What are your thoughts on Plum contacting Kitty's girls? Do you think Dominic is being honest? What do you think of Jennifer?
