Can we just talk about the character development of Nolan Ross for a second??!? (Or forever)… Because when Emily first returned to the Hamptons she stomped all over him and he did what she asked without question. It took a good while for him to be able to speak up to her- but even when they reached that level of honesty in their friendship, Nolan held back because he didn’t want to lose her. And now he is finally comfortable and confident enough in their relationship that he is actively defying Emily in her best interest.
Not to MENTION the fact that he took a beating in some of the early episodes and was utterly incapable of defending himself, and now he’s shooting at intruders to protect Ems. Guys-our baby has grown up!
The slightly awkward genius, billionaire techie we all originally came to know and love has evolved into the king of sass, fashion and never-ending loyalty we all adore today. Ahhhhhhh. All hail Nolan Ross.
