Emma: Hi guys. I'm Emma! (laughs) I mean, you know that, I'm sure. Right? Wow, this is really weird, talking to a camera. Or blogging, or whatever. I just want to introduce myself for the first time and say hi. I'm not gonna, like, shoot laser beams (takes her fingers and points them at her eyes and then at the audience) out of my eyes or anything like that, I promise. (laughs). Scout's Honor. (puts up "scout's honor" hand motion). (Sighs) And for the record, I have no idea what happened a couple days ago. As a matter of fact, I really am confused about everything that's been happening these past couple of weeks. And I really just want answers. I just keep watching these videos over and over and everything just happened really fast. And next thing I know these watchers or whatever are coming after us and I thought they were gonna kill me. I thought they were gonna kill Jonas or Daniel or Sarah, and--
Sorry, I just remember wishing it would stop. God I feel.. I feel like a freak. I'm a freak.
(Sitting down in a chair.) Hi. My parents called yesterday. And they're out of the hospital and they're fine. They've been watching all the videos on lonelygirl15; Bree and the Order, and let's just say they're not team Hymn of One anymore. They're safe now-- and they want me to join them. Jonas says I have a very important choice to make; I can take the serum, and they can give me injections that would make me a normal girl, and the Order wouldn't want me anymore. And I could go back to my normal life. I could be with my parents. I miss them so much. Or I can stay with Jonas, and we can figure out what happened the other day.
(Cut to Emma at the Grand Canyon.)
Hi everybody. So this is the infamous Grand Canyon. Can you see it? Sarah and I have been talking a lot lately and she's actually really been helping me out. She's really cool and she's really smart, even tough I know Jonas and Daniel said she doesn't always show it. But I like her a lot, she's cool. And she says that I should just figure out what I want and then go for it and I think she's right. Actually, she says that a lot. It's, like, her new motto, or something.
I'm sorry, I didn't catch that last part, what did you say again?
Sarah: I know it's complicated, but you just need to figure out what you want and then, um, go for it.
Emma: Oh, right. I forgot. (Laughs at the camera.) Sorry, shh!
Sarah: Are you coming?
Emma: I'm coming, yeah. But, I dunno, I'll have to figure it out.
Sarah: People, it's not that complicated; I mean, all we have to do is let Emma figure out what she wants and then, you know--
Emma: And then let her go for it! I'm sorry.
Sarah: And then let her go for it. I mean, look at her. (Sighs.) Jonas I know you're all fight the Order, and Mr. Avenge-Bree's-Death, but thats not fair to her. You know what, she shouldn't have to risk her life just because you say so. It's her choice, you know. And, um, just in case you guys are watching, or curious, really, um, she hasn't really bent any mountains or moved any rocks with her mind yet. Jonas is totally convinced that, you know, she killed that guy by just touching him. There are a million other ways that that could have happened. You know, he could have hit a rock, he could have broken his neck; we're not exactly doctors here.
(Emma tries to jump over a log and falls. Both start laughing.)
Emma: Score! (Cut to Emma walking.) Slowpoke!
Sarah: I'm coming, I'm just not, you know, as energetic as you are. You- Hey, woah woah there, Gidget, don't get too close to the edge. Welcome to the worlds biggest metaphor. See, the, uh, cliff, it's like your power thingie-- if it's real-- and the canyon is your life, if you chose to accept it.
Emma: So you're saying I should jump?
Sarah: Um, bad metaphor. So you tired?
Emma: Seriously, can we go home?
Sarah: Yeah, I mean, a canyon's a canyon, right?
Emma: Yep, you've seen one, you've seen them all.
Sarah: Assumedly so.
Emma: (Laughs.) Alright.
Sarah: Come on, Gidget. (Emma blows a kiss to the canyon.)
- Gidget (a book, movie, and television character) is a characteristically "cute" female surfer that has been played by, among others, Sandra Dee and Sally Field.
- There seems to be a trend developing of Emma "inheriting" entities from Bree: first P. Monkey, and now Bree's YouTube account.
- Emma's remark: "I'm a freak," is reminiscent of Bree's first blog and her comment "I'm a dork."
- Emma makes the "Scout's Honor" gesture with two fingers, though it is correctly performed with three fingers. The two-finger gesture is used by Cub Scouts.
- This video marks a dramatic change in Sarah's personality. Although she teases Emma for her perkiness and Jonas for his stoicism about the Order, she does not mock them as she once did, and her cynicism seems to have evaporated - she apparently genuinely cares for Emma.
- Sarah has adopted Taylor's advice to "just figure out what she wants and go for it" from their sister-to-sister talk.
- This is the fifth video in the series with an emoticon in the title.
