    S38.E05: It's Like the Worst Cocktail Party Ever

    I agreed with your entire post, except for two points: 1. No one voted out has won, but Lil determined who won. She won the FIC, knew whoever she chose to go to FTC with her would win, and picked Sandra. So while I hate it whenever boots get to come back, they can impact the game in a crucial way. 2. JT is the reason Malcolm got booted. Brad took advantage of JT's idiocy, and booted maybe the biggest threat that season. Great play by Brad, awful play by JT.

    S38 Preview & Speculation Thread

    IMO Joe easily out-does Ozzie at challenges. He's as good as Ozzie physically, if not better. And he's also outstanding at puzzles. Alas, Joe is about Ozzie's equal at the rest of the game, which is by far the most important. He knows he needs to play better socially and strategically. But he doesn't really know what to do. One example is how easily the others in his tribes snookered him about working together. He thought they were his allies: they couldn't wait to boot him. In 2nd Chances Joe survived the first time he lost an IC. But it seems unlikely to me he can go deep any season unless he wins virtually everything.

    If chickens are like dogs, that may not clear things up.

    To carry on with this thought, David says he targets Kelley because she is the least trustworthy person out there. ??? She was very loyal in 2nd Chances. She stayed true to her alliance through thick and thin. Now, she also had friends outside her alliance. That helped keep her in the game to near the very end. If David fears her for her craftiness, or her social skills, I understand. But Kelley was loyal to a fault. btw, I'm enjoying the season, mostly because I like Kelley so much and she has been a target every episode, which keeps me on the edge of my seat from the moment her tribe loses the IC.

    Wardog has chosen the last two boots. i.e. others had picked the target (Kelley), set their plan in motion with majority backing, only to see Wardog turn everything on its head at the 11th hour. The whole time he was in zero danger of getting booted himself. That's good playing IMO, however goofy his name seems.

    I thought you meant "Wacky Wendy" and was applauding you...

    S38 Kelly Wentworth

    I completely agree with Kimberstormer. Kelley played one of the great games ever in Second Chances. Strategically, socially and physically. Through no fault of her own, due to a record number of tribal swaps and shuffles, she always found herself in the minority: she had to play from behind the entire season. Yet she was one tiny slip away from winning the F4 IC, which probably would have won the entire season for her. The cool thing is that Jeremy played an equally good game, and a few others weren't that far behind. One of several reasons Second Chances -- one of the hardest fought, most strategic seasons ever -- is among my three favorites. I get the sense Kelley has such a target on her, she will have to come up with a similar performance to make it deep this season.

    S02.E10: Better Angels

    If they closed the border by sealing off the wall, that's not permanent is it? Couldn't someone on either side just as easily open the border again? A great series that was marred by the last two episodes IMO. Super-Mina, as many have pointed out, is one flaw. Howard Alpha not telling anyone about his wife's reveal for hours, as the fate of his world hung in the balance, is another. The writers got lazy?... rushed?... frustrated that their fine work spanning nearly two seasons had to come to such a premature end? Enough doors were left open for a sequel, which I would still like to see, even with the shortcomings of the finale.

    That might well be their goal, but seems to me impossible to achieve. All sorts of things must be different now that alpha and prime have diverged. No possible way to control how a mass infection will spread.

    I think it had to be while watching him take out the attackers. She probably had some suspicions before that, but 100% for sure her Howard could never perform like that. I don't believe she would have slept with him, had she believed he was not her real husband.

    I'm guessing she includes both managements in the death toll. That 's why she wants to bring them to the meeting: to make sure they are exposed to the toxin as well. The witching hour nears. Her agents -- the people she brainwashed as kids -- better watch their backs too. Mira could well have them in her sights.

    Does Mira want to kill all people in alpha (except those with immunity)?

    S02.E07: No Strings Attached

    Claire's father in Alpha knows his daughter had/has a clone on the other side. He sees his 'daughter's' personality has changed. Yet he doesn't seem to consider the possibility that Claire is not his Claire. I think everyone who knows about the two universes would be on full alert for switches. Trying to wrap my head around what Mira wants to do. Some lunatic, or maybe an accident, unleashed the virus in Prime-world, killing millions of innocent people. Now her idea of justice is to kill millions of innocent people on the alpha side? Some posters are suggesting Mira wants to wipe out the alpha universe entirely. Wow. Kill many billions of people, out of revenge? Maybe a case could be made if you knew the survival of your side was at stake. i.e. us or them. But no one knows that, or even has a hint of it. Mira made herself bait for the meeting between managements. I'm pretty sure she doesn't intend to just docilely turn herself over to these people she hates through every cell in her body. Assuming she holds up her end of the bargain and shows up, perhaps she is the trigger for the time bomb that will wreak devastation in the alpha universe, or at the very least close the gate permanently. Why else did she need to break her 'father' from prison, other than knowledge of how to do that?

    They were doomed the moment they did not shut down the gateway between the two universes. From then on the butterfly effect pretty well assured events could spiral out of control. Bringing in the other researchers could only add to the coming chaos. It shocked me when Yaneck Alpha started sleeping with Prime's wife, and then when he killed Prime. I'm also pretty shocked the authorities did not execute him. Very much enjoy the show, and will miss it if/when STARZ cancels it.

    Her father, who said he helped create the alternate world, must also know how to destroy it. Not with blackmail or targeted killings, but technologically. That is why she broke him out of prison.
