After Season 2 wrapped we were all pretty anxious about the lack of content to keep us interested during the hiatus. However, we shouldn’t have been, not only did they very publicly attend an LA Dodgers game together but Melissa and Chris have now remembered they have Instagram and have been documenting their 3,000 mile road trip on an enormous Harley Davidson (which Chris makes sure we can’t mistake for anything else by tagging them) with a few posts – and in the process making their relationship Instagram official.
The first post actually came from one of Melissa’s Waco co-stars and is Melwood happy at dinner in New Mexico (where the short series is currently being filmed):
After visiting the Echo Amphitheatre in New Mexico they headed to the Gran Canyon and Antelope Canyon, both in Arizona. Melissa first posting a picture of Chris’ back and then a selfie of sorts with him at the Lower Antelope canyon.
Chris then posted a picture of 3 abandoned houses and his girlfriend – making sure we knew who the figure was by not only tagging her but captioning the photo with the heart eyes emoji.
He surprised us all again by uploading (what’s assumed to be) an old photo of Farley and Drift adorably cuddled up in front of the fire together – I don’t know about you, but we're fully on team #Darley and hope we get more “melwoof” content soon.
After Monday night’s episode Mel decided to give us all another heart attack by posting a shot of her and Chris’ shadows on their motorbike, and (not to be outdone by her boyfriend’s emoji use) she made sure to put a heart in the caption.
Finally, Chris uploaded 2 photos of his bike. The first, a beautiful shot of him on it looking out at the coast (which we can only assume was taken by Mel) - which she then liked. The caption “3,000 miles, 5 states” confirmed the speculation that they were actually road tripping. The second was a clearer shot of the bike.
We know Melissa is off to The CW upfronts in New York now, so we don’t expect any more Melwood content untill HVFF, London on the 26th. But we hope they had an amazing time, it certainly looks like they did.
