    Major Crimes

    I adored the character of Jason. Sadly, it was his only appearance on the show, but good for actor Ben Feldman, he was very busy with other projects. During this re-watch I concluded that we were supposed to think Kris was lying about her Mom having dressed her up, just like Rusty later lied about Sharon having refused to let him take Kris to the movies -- that Kris was dressing to look attractive to Rusty--certainly not slutty, but clearly a member of the opposite sex. Unfortunately (or not), for Kris, she might have had better luck with a more androgynous style.

    S12.E15: The Donation Oscillation

    If they told you that seriously than they should probably consult a doctor because if their testicles are swollen enough to require that on a regular basis it isn’t normal. I blame it on the skinny-jean style craze, but what I know about men could be encoded on the head of a pin. Do men with prostate issues need to sit this way? Wyatt is of that age.

    I assumed Wayne's avoidance of "opening up" in his young-adult years was Vietnam PTSD.

    Finding Your Roots With Henry Louis Gates Jr.

    I'm not sure if anyone was 100% "something," but, IIRC, Kal Penn was overwhelmingly from a particular area of the Indian subcontinent.

    Right. So are we supposed to think Ethel's words to Emily were part of Ethel's "something special" assignment? Otherwise, like you said, why did they not just blow up the place when they left?

    I think the bouncing timelines premise (Wayne's dementia/Alzheimer's) should work even better than season one's generic flashbacks and flash forwards, but, yeah, it's not quite there. . . . Wayne's memory coming and going may seem a little too plot-convenient, but that is how age- and Alzheimer's-related memory-loss works. I mean, it's not like he had a literal anvil fall on his head, heh.

    While I would agree that 99.9% villains are either too smart or too stupid, and that in this show Mira did become a bit of a Super Villain, the show was pretty smart, so, maybe Ethel was supposed to wait until after her cohorts' trains departed and then blow up the place if Naya & Co. didn't find the cabin--and if they did find the cabin: Kablooey! In any event, Ethel deliberately tripped the wire, right?

    Season 5 Discussion

    I thought Frankie was just being her typical clueless/in-denial self and thinking Grace would like the hippie spa once they got there. Frankie only bugs me when she's angry because it makes me think that her happy hippie demeanor is fake. So, yeah, if she is fake, you are probably right, @ProudMary, and Frankie did know Grace wouldn't like the "spa."

    Yeah, double take for me too on Howard Alpha given a gun at the van, but he did shoot and kill someone recently. But then I was thinking WTF, did Howard A maybe give Howard P' his hat in the van, and it is now Howard P' with the gun? I momentarily thought something similar. Maybe the writers et al. edited this episode after they knew that there was no third season on STARZ but had a possibility elsewhere.

    S02.E07: Deflectors

    So far just crickets and Krill WRT (with regards to) my (implied) suggestion that some of you young grasshoppers might be better able than I to consider the meaning of the episode title, "Deflectors." So, I guess the obvious is that Locar's holographic hack deflected suspicion from himself, but there's got to be more, right? Like maybe all the deflecting from how every Moclan who marries a surgically sex-altered mate is attracted to females? Maybe they'll revisit this and all this will happen-- --which I was thinking too.

    So was that Mira's plan all along? Were the others (with the train tickets) just decoys? If there was a season 3: Perhaps the crossing would be reopened —ostensibly to get a vaccine for the virus— and Emily Prime would reunite with Alpha Howard. He did kiss her goodbye. But without another season, it's fitting that we viewers are left feeling a bit as bereft as our heroes and anti-heroes. If Howard Prime had not "made a better deal" and crossed back to the other side, would he have been vulnerable to the virus? Was Ethel's plan exactly what she did? Was it to send them after decoys? Because, if so, that almost didn't happen.

    I may be of some small use here, @Bastet. It seems that 6.9 was actually included in the thread titled, "S06.E08: CONSPIRACY THEORY PARTS THREE AND FOUR" (even though it only has "S06.E08" in the title). Here are the 4 pages' links from the Internet Archive/Wayback Machine for "S06.E08: CONSPIRACY THEORY PARTS THREE AND FOUR": page 1 page 2 page 3 page 4 And, here are . . . S06.E10: BY ANY MEANS PARTS ONE AND TWO" (which includes 6.11): page 1 page 2 page 3 S06.E12: By Any Means Part Three page 1 page 2 page 3 S06.E13: By Any Means Part Four page 1 page 2 page 3 page 4 (Google cache only) page 4 (saved to shapeshifter's daughter's site)

    Ah. So is that why it's airing a week later? I mean, are they CGI-ing as we type?

    Hmmm. . . neither is Olive. Only the 828er Stones. How Lostian.

    S02.E07: Deflectors

    Except Topa would likely be adversely effected. Better (IMO) to have an episode in which the divorce is done the Orvilleian way. Maybe Klyden is left on some secret (to the Moclans) planet, and Topa can Skype him when he wants to and visit him for Festivus.
