    I binge-watched it. I have no idea what transpired during the last 30 minutes.

    S11.E03: It's a Clam Shame

    Ramona is disgusting. Every season she says something atrocious to another person, and doesn't say sorry. She always says "I apologize" which I don't consider to be the same thing as saying "I'm so sorry, I was wrong." Every year I have more and more contempt for this woman. Barbara is "masculine"? Says the woman who butchered her face and now has a lopsided nose.
  3. Hmmm but I bet all four couples stay married on D-Day.
  4. Sigh. Another season of Luann and Dorinda fighting. Sonja stirring the pot. Ramona being an asshole. Tinsley being a useless lump. I don't know if I can do it, guys. I hate watching Vicious Dorinda.

    S08.E11: My Little Secret

    Miss Luke forces himself to have sex with Kate and then spends the rest of the night being upset. Hmmmm yeah, my first instinct about him is proving to be accurate.

    S08.E10: D Day Comes Early

    Before the show started, I thought I wouldn't like "Queen" Kristine. It turns out that she is really sweet and it's actually Jasmine who is the insufferable, high-maintenance snob. What point hasn't been made about Luke and Kate? Everything has already been said. I'm dying to know what the big secret is. My guess is, he hasn't really been living there. I don't know what the money situation is this time. Last season the couples got a $10k stipend but this season, homes were rented for them and they aren't getting handed wads of cash. I'm sure there's still money at play for even participating and perhaps they get a bonus or something if they make it to D-Day. That possibility is the only thing that makes sense to me re: Luke. He's in it for the fame and the money. Current predictions: AJ/Stephanie: will stay together on D-Day but will split up down the road. His temper and mood swings are a big NO and she knows it. Keith/Kristine: will stay together on D-Day but will split shortly after the reunion. Will/Jasmine: will stay together on D-Day (bc he's a nice guy and won't want to embarrass her) but will split shortly after the reunion. Luke/Kate: won't even dignify this.

    S.08 E.09 One Month Down, Forever To Go

    Will/Jasmine: He's just biding his time until it's all over. Maybe he will say that he wants to stay married on D-Day so as not to embarrass Jasmine (because I think she wants to stay married to him), but he's gone as soon as the reunion is over. She doesn't treat him well. Keith/Kristine: I really like her. Keith did okay with the anniversary dinner but I doubt he'll change much in terms of household chores. He's maybe the guy that you casually date, not the guy that you live with or marry. AJ/Stephanie: They've had some cute moments. I couldn't deal with him and his mood swings but I'm not the one who's married to him. Luke/Kate: Two experts have realized what trash he is and told him off. Then Dr. Blondie goes easy on him on Unfiltered because he tried to shed a few fake tears. She always takes the man's side, huh? She clearly hasn't been paying attention to Luke's gaslighting and abusive behavior. She sucks. I couldn't believe Luke rated himself so high. He told his wife that after they kissed, he felt repulsed and dead inside, and then called her an alcoholic multiple times on camera. He enjoys torturing Kate which is why he won't just come out and say, "I'm not attracted to you (I'm gay), and this will never happen." It is so creepy how, after Kate reminded him that he got so drunk that he couldn't come home, instead of being embarrassed or apologetic, he just smiled and said "I know." He really might have a mental defect or personality disorder. NPD, maybe? Maybe he wants the camera time. Either way someone needs to intervene and drag Kate out of there. Luke is the worst contestant on this show ever.

    S03.E08: Now Am Found

    Oh, I forgot to say: the whole bird-shitting-on-heads thing? In some cultures that's considered a sign of good luck, having a bird poop on your head.

    Re: the flashback to jungle at the end -- I figured it was a throwback to the methlord's utterance from S1 about time being a flat circle and we will all experience every moment of our lives again.

    S03.E08: Now Am Found

    This. I get that re-using the name Lucy was a wink to the audience but whatever. It's an odd, illogical story. According to Mr. June, Julie basically lived in that room until she was a teenager. He was supposed to help her after she fled but instead she took off. Eventually she ends up at a convent/shelter for runaways and randomly a boy from her childhood recognizes her. It's a small world in TD. Why wouldn't the nuns call the police, FBI, etc if they knew that "bad people" were after Julie, rather than stage her death? A traumatized runaway lands on your door and you don't investigate, you just pretend that she's dead? So weird. By the time she showed up at the shelter, Isabelle was already dead anyway. If the cops needed to pin Julie's abduction on someone, I'm thinking Hoyt would easily give the police Mr. Junius. It's all seems really farfetched to me right now. Perhaps I'm forgetting details but in my defense this is convoluted storytelling for the sake of being convoluted. I'm sure Mike Ardoin means well and loves his childhood crush but by continuing to hide Julie's true identity from the world, she's basically still in seclusion and totally dependent on him. She probably doesn't even have a driver's license or social security card. The audience may have some semblance of closure in knowing that Julie is alive and well but no justice was ever served. It's still unresolved. Hays's son is a detective, too, I believe. I'm sure he realized that his father wouldn't drive all the way out there to search for this address without a good reason. The son probably followed up with that over the next week or so and figured it all out. I think that's what we're to infer after he kept the paper. I found the Hays and Amelia scenes to be tedious toward the end, probably because we already knew that they ended up together. The strength of this series has always been the relationship between the detectives. That was true for me in S1 and it was true again here (I've blocked S2). Ali was great as always but Dorff really impressed me.
  11. Answering my own (old) question: looks like they've split. Hopefully it's for good this time, as he has wasted enough of her time. https://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/rhonys-tinsley-mortimer-scott-kluth-split/

    S.08 E.08 The Past and the Furious

    I think we see where Luke learned his manipulative ways. Mommy was so proud and delighted to tell that story about Luke selling sand from the beach.

    S.08 E.08 The Past and the Furious

    Wow at that moment when Kristine realized that her relationship with Keith is the same as her relationship with her ex, minus the money. I like her. She deserves better. Keith won't change -- he wants someone who will wait on him hand and foot. I still don't think that Will and Jasmine are attracted to each other. I don't sense any chemistry whatsoever. AJ and Stephanie have had their cute moments. I couldn't personally deal with him and his mood swings but if she's okay with it all, good for them. Luke continues to be a piece of trash. His parents seem nice enough but had clearly been forewarned that it wasn't going to work out. His dad just kept shoveling the food in while his mother spoke to Kate in that social worker "I'm sorry" way (™ Kathy Bates), especially at the end.

    Speculation for True Detective

    I googled the actress who plays 21-year-old Julie Purcell and all I know is, I wouldn't be able to tell her and the actress who plays Shelly apart. They look exactly alike.

    S08.E07: Can I Trust You?

    I think it's wrong to try to place any blame on Kate. It is not her fault that she is being mistreated. She has done nothing wrong and nothing to deserve it.
