    Ooh, that could work. I do think there’s going to be some big reveal that Camille and/or her perspective isn’t what we think. The short and long hair in the flashbacks is confusing. It would make more sense if the long hair came first and then she suddenly cut it off, but other aspects make them seem the other way around.

    I haven’t read the book, but what would be the most unpredictable ending? Maybe Camille did it all - killed Marion, killed her roommate, and killed the girls in a wind gap (driving there and back secretly at night or whatever). Maybe she doesn’t even know it herself.
  3. Season Two Talk: Top of the Lake

    I didn't understand what was going on there, Robin was going to marry Johnno real quick in the jail?? She was totally going to do that until she found out he'd been messing around with a teenage girl? So besides assassinating his character, it made her look like an idiot. And I couldn't really remember who the people were that she was burning the dress with because its been years since I saw the first season, but I don't remember anyone from the first season she was that close with in that way. And what was the deal with the guy she shot in the first season showing up, having a wife and kids all of a sudden, attacking her dramatically well despite being seriously crippled, and then no one ever mentioning it again? And the above complaints are just as relates to the first season. All the stuff that was second season only made absolutely zero sense. I'm not even sure where to start. Puss wasn't attractive or appealing in any way, and I never understood Mary's attachment to him as he just got grosser and grosser. Miranda's character was bizarre and who hires a surrogate with their affair partner while one of them is still married to someone else?? But at least I guessed early on that she wasn't really pregnant. And they left a lot of stuff unresolved. What's going to happen to those babies? They never clarified if the women carrying them wanted to keep them or if there was a ransom plan or what. They let Puss get away, despite plenty of stuff to hold him on. Robin keeps on just talking to him without arresting him or calling in backup. Why was what's his name hiding under the sand waiting to shoot... who? I guess he was hallucinating but it didn't make sense. Nothing in this season made sense. That's the bottom line: nothing made sense, not plots and not characterizations.
  4. Season Two Talk: Top of the Lake

    I wish there were episode threads, because I have no idea what’s going on in half these scenes. I guess I’ll be back once I’ve finished season 2.

    Camille took the detective to the gang bang spot as part of a tour of crime scenes, so she clearly knew it could be considered a crime, whether or not she “consented” at that age.

    At first I thought it might turn out to be about Adora and Camille being the baby, but I guess not?

    Now that you mention it, could very well be. Surprised it didn’t occur to me earlier; I think I’m somewhat trained by fiction to suspect that whenever a sister is 14 or more years older than the next sibling. I guess I assumed in this case Adora had another kid late because of a second marriage, but we don’t really know the history of when she married Alan or anything yet. Anyway, now that’s ou mention it, I think your idea very well might turn out to be true. (I haven’t read the book).

    I just don't pause. If I miss a word, I miss it (I do miss most of them). On the other hand, I agree about the super quick flashes, flash-backs, whatever they are. A few of them have made me jump, but a lot of them leave me feeling like I just missed whatever it was. However, I still haven't been pausing. I figure they'll make stuff clear eventually if its important.

    This episode was really confusing. Not even sure where to start. Amma's behavior is bizarre, I don't know what to make of her - is she supposed to have some kind of personality disorder? (I also have trouble telling all the teen girls apart; it took me a little while to be sure it was Amma at the pig farm.) Are there rehabs just for cutting? Do rehabs usually have young teenagers share rooms with grownups? I'm not catching any of the words on my small screen but I like seeing the discussion here. I am glad that they don't seem to be critical clues, just an extra layer for fun, like "easter eggs".

    I don't see how they could know that the person didn't use that loosening method - but maybe they can tell somehow (ew). In any case I think a better question is why someone would WANT to extract the teeth. As for physical strength, we know the body was left in the middle of town without anyone knowing, so whoever moved it must be a reasonably strong person - that wasn't a little kid; a 15 year old girl isn't that easy to lift up for, say, a small woman. But certainly doable for many women. So they are looking for a reasonably strong woman or an average strength man - that seems like it would rule out Adora, but who knows, maybe she has her weird husband or someone else doing the heavy lifting.
  11. All Episodes Talk: Making Polygamy Look Good

    I binged the first few seasons of this and then got tired of it. One thing I never got was how Margie could have joined their polygamous family without even being Mormon, apparently? I was shocked in the episode where they were going to baptize Teeny and suddenly Margie jumped in to be baptized. How could any of them have been ok with one of the wives not even being baptized into the religion that says they should all be in this polygamous arrangement in the first place? Margie always seemed like she was raised in the regular world and I never understood why she would want to agree to this or why they would want her given how she behaves (except Bill would want her because she’s hot). I got tired of watching when it became clear they weren’t going to explain that kind of thing. But there was a line when she said she was trapped because she had two little kids and no other income, and that really rang true. The whole situation seemed very sad to me on behalf of Barb, Margie, and the kids. It only seemed like Nicki and Bill actually liked the polygamy thing.

    Yes and I now take long term medication for anxiety, and generally I think it has helped a lot and I feel much less anxious overall, but it has had no effect on my desire to bite the edges of my nails. I find I do it when I’m bored, or thinking, not necessarily when I’m anxious. I’ve tried things like bad tasting nail polish and getting jewelry to fidget with instead, but not had any long term success. No finger infections but I do get colds a lot. On that subject. How can they know it was done with pliers and not some special tool?
  13. S01.E02: Dirt

    I don’t think I’ve seen anyone directly interact with her but didn’t Camille and the detective talk about her? Now I think I might have a relatively mild version of this. I used to pull out my armpit hair with tweezers and I really kind of enjoyed doing it even though it hurt (if you’re severely myopic like me you can see each individual hair really well if you take off your glasses or contacts). “Meditative” definitely describes how I felt. Unfortunately it gave me a rash that was unsightly in summer tank tops. I managed to stop that with some real effort but I still bite the skin around my fingers compulsively and can’t stop even though I know it’s gross and sometimes it bleeds. Probably putting my fingers in my mouth all the time makes me get sick more often too. But then, lots of people bite their nails, so where’s the line that makes it a disorder?
  14. S02.E04: The Riddle Of The Sphinx

    Yes, I'm just saying I don't understand how the events of Season 1 translated into Logan being a drug addict instead of into Logan getting back and William once they got back to the real world, or any other possible outcome.
  15. Things We Hate About The Handmaid's Tale

    I like that June isn't perfect. I don't like that she is so deeply impractical during escape attempts.
