This day begins with some brief pretence from various people pretending to mourn Josh (even Declan pretends sadness - when they’ve had like 5 minutes of screen time together), but while Keelin and Freya briefly acknowledge, hey, people are dead they decide they’re going to have a wedding. Today
Of course this is doable because Klaus is willing to compel everyone to making it happen and is actually like the best of all the Mikkaelson siblings over this. And well everyone. Freya wants everyone involved in her wedding but no-one seems to be willing to make it a priority. Elijah loses himself angsting about Hayley and can’t pull it together for like an hour to be her best man. Vincent is leaving the city because it’s all too hard and he can’t possibly delay his trip for a bit.
I get that everyone has massive emotional stuff going on at the moment but, given how much Freya pretty much exists to serve already, it’d be nice if everyone spared her an hour or so. It’d be kind of nice.
Rebekkah is supportive and loving at least and then decides to talk kids… to which Freya is clear that she absolutely, completely does not want kids ever ever ever ever. Which is a problem because Keelin really really wants kids and discussing this on the day of the wedding is super awkward. Freya lays down the law and then decides they need to break up because she can’t give Keelin what she needs.
I would be far more into this conflict if, y’know, we’d had any foreshadowing of it or Keelin and Freya spent more than 5 seconds together. Freya is completely unable to spill her grief to Keelin so tells sister Rebekkah about why she’s so anti-child: Mikkaelsons are The Worst
Which, y’know she’s not wrong… basically since Esther and Mikkel were the worst parents ever she’s kind of worried that she will also be the worst parent ever. While Rebekkah very sensibly points out that while they’re all damaged they’re not actually broken and, if nothing else, the Mikkaelsons are (unhealthily) loyal.
Now accepting the fact that she’s not inherently evil she goes to Keelin and they talk and it’s all tearful but what I found most meaningful is that, in addition to professing their love to each other, is that Freya promises that she will seriously consider kids and be open to them. I like that a pep talk from Rebekkah hasn’t just made her declare “ZOMG MY ISSUES ARE OVER!” she still has issues but she recognises she can address them. She doesn’t promise she will have kids or will want kids but she is open to the possibility
