    The Man In The High Castle

    Amazon Prime has just dropped a trialer with a press released stating that season 4 will be the final season. The season is expected to be released in the fall. i’m not surprised as I figured that creatively I couldn’t see how the story could be stretched out much beyond a fourth season.

    Roswell, New Mexico Spoilers and Speculation

    This episode brought a realization to me that Max, Michael, and Isabel are going to end up with a human support team by the end of this season who will know their truth, or at least that they are aliens and will make the fight against the military and the inevitable others more even. My guess is this will be Liz, Kyle and Alex at a minimum, at least for Max and Michael. Not sure where Isabel human connections other than possibly Noah even can fit in, if she has any. The Kyle Alex dynamic in this episode was quite interesting to say the least. So we now have all the characters in their late 20s (I assume) having gone to high school or even earlier together and a shared history of sorts. I suppose this next flashback episode is going to be very interesting to see how all of them fit into that dynamic.

    Roswell, New Mexico Scheduling: Earth Time

    I think the CW generally runs reruns the week of a federal holiday. In this instance, Presidents Day is observed on Monday May 18th.

    The Expanse in the Media

    Burn Gorman is probably best known for his role on Torchwood, so I think that’s a good addition.

    S05.E20 Ragnarok

    The fact that Ivar disappears and flees Kattegat incognito is proof enough that the other side won. Most if not all of those killed in the last phase by Bjorn were Ivar’s best soldiers is also proof. Bjorn becomes King partially because of his deal with Herald, and because this time his other brothers and Lagatha agree he should be king. The face paint was more so each army would know who was in the other army and who was Ivar’s. Interesting in that it is a precursor to the similar use in Scotland by the Viking descendants a few hundred years later. i rewatched the episode last night, and I loved it even more the second time around.

    Show Spoilers and Book Talk

    I suspect this French speaking priest was originally from Quebec. Someone posted a google map type image showing on contemporary highways a route from Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina to Shadow Lake on or near the shore of Lake Huron in western New York, and the French speaking areas of Quebec are right across the Lake. And I seem to recall some mention of that name in one of the Lord John novellas set in that area (I could easily be wrong but it would take time to check that.)

    S05.E20 Ragnarok

    Lagatha and Ubbe arrived with the sword and proclaimed Bjorn Ironsides as King of Kattagart, with the sword. I seem to recall that sword with Ubbe and Lagatha when they departed Wessex for Kattagart an episode or two back. The key I think is the Seer speaking to Bjorn about the future being set. What Bjorn saw was a vision or a fear of his future but in any event, Bjorn recalling his conversation with Ragnar on the mountain cliff discussing ruling and power was so fitting a conclusion to this season as Bjorn becomes the king I think Ragnar taught him and expected him to become. The future Ragnar wanted, with the lands in East Agelica and the eldest son he trained as king, is here. But can it be kept? That, I think, is where the next and final season goes.

    S04.E13: Man of Worth

    Murtaugh’s mother’s family are Fitsgibbons. Makes sense to hide using that name. It was interesting that some season 5 plot lines were set up in this finale. Clearly the still living Murtagh is a combination of several characters in the books going forward, and the call for Jamie to set up a militia comes, IIRC, midway in Fiery Cross. And this episode gets us to 1771 as the time between the handfast and Roger’s arrival at River Run is close to a year. Episode itself was well done, cleared a lot of story points, and gave viewers some important points about the time travel aspects for a change.

    TAR32: Spoilers (No Elimination Info)

    The show calls those Switchbacks. Sometimes they use an original roadblock as a detour or Active Route Marker task, or vice versa, but Phil tells the viewer when it’s being done.

    S04.E10: The Deep Heart's Core

    Just my suspicion, but I think it likely we will see Yong Ian’s story with the native Americans next season. While the books tells it as flashbacks or via others, there’s enough there to make it coincide with the events elsewhere in the meantime. (After all, isn’t that what was done for the first half of season 3 with Jamie and Claire?)

    Vikings Sightings In The Media

    There’s probably a story there somewhere about the Vikings who ultimately became the Scottish Highlanders, which would be my guess.

    S04.E09: The Birds & The Bees

    IIRC, the Frasers had to build, and rebuild, and rebuild a second time after they returned from New York and Pennsylvania in the later books. So the biggest of their houses was being finished as Bree and Roger and the kids return from 1980s Scotland. How the show intends total with it, I’ve no idea, but I would guess the fire will cause a rebuilding but probably not the only one.
