[S5E21] What Love Means
We've lost out on what she can be as an individual character because she's been thus far presented as a run-of-the-mill love interest whose existence fuels Conrad's storyline rather than standing on her own.
[S5E21] What Love Means
Billie: I'm very worried about Cade, but I'm also worried about you. Cade: Devon already covered that territory. I'm okay. Billie: Are you really? I think the question everyone's thinking and no one is saying is how personal is this, Conrad? Conrad: It's personal for all of us. Billie: That's not what I'm asking. Are you in love with Cade? Conrad: No. Billie: Are you sure? Conrad: No. Billie: What do you mean? Conrad: She knew she had to leave, so we didn't go there. She put up barriers to protect herself, so did I. Billie: What are these barriers? Conrad: That's obvious. It always goes back to Nic. Something stops me. It's not just with Cade, it's with others, too. Billie: What stops you? Conrad: I'm not sure. I'm protecting myself, maybe. Because I can't face another loss like that. I feel like I'm cheating on Nic, I don't know. All I know is that whatever I feel can only go so far, then the walls come up. Billie: Maybe you need a little push.
Interestingly enough, we've been told about what's meant to amount to a love triangle between Conrad, Cade, and Billie where he could find something with one of these women when it accepts that Nic would want him to be happy again.
But based on what we've seen so far, it's an imbalanced attempt at a love triangle if we have more to go on with a hint of romance between Conrad and Cade than with Billie. And both angles are so underserved.
On the day of the wedding, Grampa crashes Burns' and Jacqueline's wedding ceremony and asks that Jacqueline marry him instead. Partly due to Burns' behavior, especially when he threatens Bart after he accidentally drops the wedding rings, she decides not to marry either man. Deciding that Jacqueline's decision is good enough for him, Grampa grabs her and they run out of the church and onto on a bus, leaving Burns heartbroken. On the bus, the two sit silently, contemplating what will happen between them now, before Grampa yells at bus driver Otto to turn the music off. After being rebuffed, Grampa talks over the song and credits about why he loves Jacqueline, before being cut off by the Gracie Films logo.

Enterprise is stuck 100 years before TOS and the only reason we still get shows in the 23rd century is because TOS started it all and people still love it. By no means am I saying Enterprise was a fantastic show or even in my top 5, but it most certainly has been acknowledged. 041b061a72
