You know with the ending of the TP+KF episode with Tommy and Kimi both giving each other the I like you like you looks at the end of the episode you have to wonder why did they have Tommy not only waste his first kiss on that (in the immortal words of Helga G. Pataki) dumb bimbo Olivia and his first girlfriend on a character who only appeared in only 4 episodes (that jerk Rachel) if they were going to reveal that he has a secret crush on Kimi as well as she(Kimi) does for him.
I love the TP+KF episode. It left us with a lot of questions that were unable to be told because the show got cancelled before it could. But you have to wonder why did they have Tommy do what he did by wasting his first kiss on Olivia and first girlfriend on A outsider character Rachel if he really likes Kimi the whole time like I side. Well I got a theory on that and to me it makes sense in my opinion.
Okay let's get the easy parts out of the way.
Number One he did it because he was shy and afraid Kimi might not like him back.
Number Two he was scared of what Chuckie might think of it of him having a crush on his sister Kimi as we saw in the episode TP+KF.
now some questions that did not get a chance to answer in the show.
Number Three he and Kimi might have kissed somewhere between the 10 year gap of Rugrats and All Grown Up and that's why he was trying so hard to get kissed by a girl he didn't know as to cover it up. Or he forgot or just didn't count it (like Ned and Mosley did from Ned's declassified). And think about it Kimi didn't seem to care about Olivia being Tommy's "first kiss" in the episode Fear of Falling and since she has a crush on him wouldn't she do something to stop her from being his first kiss instead of doing what ever angelica wanted her to do in that episode I know Helga wouldn't allow Ruth or Lila to be Arnold's first kiss in Hey Arnold. Now how would it have happened well remember when they first saw the initials(which Kimi carved) and when Chuckie accused Tommy of carving the TP+KF initials and after Tommy denied it and is snobby by telling Kimi to "Tell Chuckie I have no interest in you" and when Chuckie asked who did it then if it wasn't him, Tommy sides that Angelica might have did it which you have to wonder why Tommy is accusing Angelica for it(besides the fact she could of done it if she wanted to) I think some where between the 10 year gap of the end of Rugrats and the begging of All Grown Up Angelica made Tommy and Kimi kiss so she could tees them for it and that's why he was making conclusions of Angelica carving the initials in my opinion.
Number Four Tommy pretending to like Rachel and her being his Girlfriend. I think that Tommy pretend to like Rachel to hide the fact that he likes Kimi as he once again possibly pretending to like a girl he doesn't know anything about to cover it up and since he did that know one would expect a thing and he selled it pretty good. And we also have to put in the fact that if he really did "liked liked" Rachel he wouldn't be giving Kimi the "I like you like you" looks at the end of TP+KF and when Rachel left he didn't seem to care not one bit not even a little. And in all but Two episodes he never mentioned Rachel not even once heck he along with Chuckie and Phil were checking out and trying to flirt with two teenage lifeguards in one episode. Though you could say they just did that to look cool but still why would Tommy do that if he already has a girlfriend. even when he was dating Rachel he never had Rachel hang out with his friends or Rachel was just really a jerk(which she is) and really wanted Tommy all to herself(which I do believe that part) and another factor we have to add is the fact that Tommy and Rachel had nothing in comment besides them being both Jewish though Tommy is hafe Christian and Rachel is not so they really have nothing in comment and I bet when Kimi side she was the one who carved the initials and she had a crush(which she still does)on him made him really happy heck he has really pleased about it when Kimi side it and I bet once he heard Kimi confess he was ready to brake up with Rachel but when Kimi side "for like a year or Two for like a second get over yourself"(which she lied) after he side "You Like Me" he was disappointed but he did not give up as he knew there was still hope. And when Rachel told him that she was moving far away he was vary fine with it and happy about it as he know longer had to worry about Rachel anymore. And I think another reason why Tommy dated Rachel was to get Kimi jealous.
This is all my opinion and my thoughts on it. so what do you guys think do you think Tommy Pretended to like Rachel to try to get Kimi jealous and to make everyone think he didn't have a crush on Kimi and do you guys think Tommy and Kimi possible kissed before Tommy had his supposed first kiss with Olivia or do you guys think other wise maybe you guys have your on theory's on it as well if so I'm really inserted to know your opinions in the comment section tell me what you guys think.
