Forget the Emmy's, I'm more concerned about the Baldies. Eva Green has no shot at a Baldie if Jim never watches the show. There must be some way that we can get Aron & Cecily to strap Jim in a chair a la Clockwork Orange style, and force feed him the show's run.
Eva Green should be swimming in Emmys like Scrooge McDuck swims in gold coins. Jesus Christ, I've never seen anything like her performance. I got pretty misty eyed during the head shaved scene and I literally shouted "YEAH!!!" when she started chanting and levitating. The whole episode was so powerful and it culminated so beautifully into that scene. I say it constantly this show should be flat out ridiculous, but they sell it so beautifully and the performances are so amazing that it is honestly my favorite thing running right now (note: I am so far behind on GoT that I don't watch it currently so I can't speak to that as an alternative). I have been racking my brain, and I do tend to be a prisoner of the moment when it comes to these things, but honestly when you factor in the degree of difficulty I can't think of a performance that has ever impressed me more than Eva Green does here. It's just crazy. Absolutely nuts how well she sells this character.
Why did Stan shoot that kid? I can't remember now.It was in retaliation for the killing of his partner. If I remember correctly, Stan's partner was staking out Martha and crossed paths with Phillip. Phillip killed him. Stan and the FBI blamed the Rezidentura KGB for the murder. Stan & his boss decided they needed to kill someone from the Rezidentura to even the score.
