  1. In a fascinating twist, Cirie's "blunder" in the last episode may actually save her. She'll look a lot less threatening now. So if she doesn't win immunity at final four, they might target someone else who seems a bigger threat (like Sarah or Brad). Tai and Troy are clearly goats, and Aubrey looks like one, too. But I think Sarah will target Aubrey, who she doesn't trust, rather than Cirie, but who knows what Sarah's next "big move" will be? So depending upon who is in the final four and who uses idols, she could make to the final.
  2. On this week's episode of IMAGINARY MARY, there was a STRANGER THINGS reference. The title character is banished to a dark place with water on the ground and she calls out for Alice and then "Barb" (there is no Barb in the show).
  3. I didn't like the blank verse. It was as if the playwright was screaming "Shakespeare" at the top of his lungs! Not only shades of MacBeth, but also King Lear. The acting was great, and the basic premise seemed sound, but the way it played out seemed totally unrealistic to me. And where was Prince Andrew in all of this? I still remember TPS from THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN. A great actor who will be sorely missed. This was a good way to go out if there aren't any other unreleased performances.
  4. But if Trump keeps goading Kim, N. Korea might strike first, and THEN Trump could easily launch a retaliatory nuclear strike and start WW III. Sleep well...
  5. Actually, they did know. In an earlier season we saw Patrick give up smoking after reading a journal article (and losing a patient to smoking-related illness).
  6. If Sami's back, I hope that means that Johnny, Sydney and Allie are back as well. I always liked the kids, and Lucas hasn't seen his daughter in ages.
  7. I think the main storyline is slavery. The farm workers are essentially slaves to the owners. The teen prostitutes are slaves to their pimps. The Haitian nanny is a slave to her employers, etc. (And murder.)
  8. A "good" girl wouldn't, but there was plenty of extramarital sex going on, particularly in wartime.
  9. I think Hale is a "real" doctor, but just hasn't taken a test required by the US Army to be a doctor in the army.
  10. Even if Stefano is alive, Hope shot SOMEONE. If it was Stefano, it's attempted murder. If it was the unidentified man in the grave, it's still murder.
  11. No, Hope used Bo's gun. Stefano's gun was never fired.
  12. LCK magically appeared on Xfinity (Comcast) On Demand yesterday. I think there's just a bit of a lag.
  13. That may be true, but she's in an alliance with David. And she seems to like him and Ken a lot. If she lets Adam be the "backstabber" who takes out David, and is somehow able to get rid of Jay, I think she has a good chance to win.
  14. No, Brett is far from a "challenge monster," but if the options were Brett or Sunday, who's more likely to win ii? Also, one of them had to go as they were a single voting unit with two votes. Far too dangerous this late in the game.
  15. I think Hannah's targeting of Sunday was very smart. Not only did she worry that Sunday would be taken to the final instead of Hannah, but leaving Brett in the game reduces the chances of Jay winning individual immunity and taking out one of her alliance members. Brett is no strategic threat, and is also goatier than Hannah, so keeping him there isn't a big deal.
