I know there's a talkback thread for this.
However, she annoyed me so much in the episode I felt there had to be a thread for it.
I mean, Ben's famous Gwen it can't be helped that he's going to go every where and the public gets all excited for him.
Julie is an unknown compared to Ben, its like if a nobody dated a famous actress or actor, there going to overshadow them of course.
And than, Ben had to go defeat the Forever Knights in the begining, I mean gese. They may not be a threat now, but they could end up being one later on down the road. Any one else think she went a little over board here?
*jumps up and down raising hand* Oh! Oh! I do! I do! Pick me! LOL jk... Seriously though, Kevin was the ONLY person who was talking sense throughout the whole episode! *holds up two hands* Fate of world...thin skinned girlfriend...fate of world...thin skinned girlfriend... Sorry. Julie kinda ticked me off at the very beginning as well.
Gwen was NOT acting like Gwen. At all. I know that she's Julie's friend, but not stopping the Forever Knights? Hello, they're bad guys. They will do bad stuff. And I can't help but feel that Urian is going to whip the Knights back into shape. If (and hopefully when) he returns.

I think its pretty justified. Julie may be Ben's girlfriend, but she's become Gwen's friend. I wouldn't want my friend to be hurt by their boyfriend, ESPECIALLY if their boyfriend was MY cousin and I could DO something about it. Ben was stopping crime which was understandable, and Gwen should have been more understanding about that. However, everything else was justifiable.
Do you think she should have been angry at him for being famous?
It wasn't his fault some 10 year kid filmed him transforming into an alien.
He's going to be famous every where. Is she going to be angry at him all the time for this?
Emmmm.......Not very much
It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgement
i'm already very anti-Gwen and her being all attitude-y doesn't help her status at all. overreaction: of course. Julie's overreaction: just shameful!!!! she can't even grow a backbone to stick up to Ben or anything!!! and Ben was being a butthead. there are times when i really really feel the need to reach into my tv and slap him til he can't feel his dang face

Because they are angry with Gwen,by his ¡character!.
Your not seeing the full picture here, I put this in my review of the episode:
Gwen scolded Ben because Ben entered the stadium and thought he was THE celebrity. He accepted photos, signed autographs, said “hi” to people, etc. If I were famous and I was going to see my girlfriend’s first professional tennis match then I would enter and said “back off, leave me alone” and run to my chair (because I wouldn’t be there to make new friends, I would be there to see my girlfriend). Also Gwen was right because Tennis matches usually are long, so Ben was already late. When Gwen called him it was the middle of the match and stopping the forever knights took about 30 seconds, conversation with Gwen included (because we saw all the beating in the episode) besides the stadium was really close and Ben got there when the match was over so, he was REALLY late. Gwen was right when she said that the forever knights aren’t a threat now and also they weren't doing anything (okay they seemed to have bad intentions but by that rule, why they don't go to their castles and beat them up pretty bad, I mean they always have bad intentions but normally the things they do are not a threat cofcofchasingdragonscofcof) normally a hero waits for somebody to do something bad before he beats that guy. so Ben could have easily went to the match and in the break go to investigate if the forever knights did something bad.And finally Gwen was right because the final proof was there, Ben didn’t even care about his girlfriend he was playing videogames on his cell phone and thinking about going to the movies instead of apologizing to Julie and trying to invent an excuse. He was so immature that he deserved everything that happened to him at the end of the episode.
Gwen really knows about this stuff because she is happy and her boyfriend is happy (Kevin wanted to investigate the forever knights but he was more than willingly to stay because of Gwen, and when he left Gwen wasn't upset or anything because she knows that Kevin do stuff like that and she loves him because of that).
Sorry for any grammar mistakes
The forever knights had a freaking TANK. Gwen basically said "I value a tennis match over the lives of others and the security of the priceless artifacts of the museum" And it wasn't like she was like "Ben, you stay here while I/Kevin go beat the forever knights" Nope, she just PMSed all over Ben. I get it when she got mad for him letting those girls just oogle him. But the start made no sense. Also Julie overreacted. She valued a Tennis match over everything and got mad that a retarded version of Ben went and saw the movie. I mean he obviously explained the situation of how the three Bens were incomplete flawed clones..... She essentially said, "Nope I'm a self centered dirtbag."
