Of ships and hope and disappointment…
For months and months it was quiet, deafeningly so. All of us “hooked to the point of obsession”-fans, who knew that the new season was being filmed, were desperate for even a snippet of something. Anything! Even a photo of an empty trailer would have us blowing up the Twitter timeline, looking for clues in everything: do we see Laurel anywhere in there?

Of course they would be happily back together, as a family! Why else would Jen post these photos? What were we thinking, being so anguished all the time. Relief, finally, and the photos couldn’t be shared enough.
