  • Honestly I just read plot summaries this season. I cannot deal with the lack of traction and June Stares. 
  • I held out on the last 3 episodes because I was worried Nancy would die, but when she didn't, I finally caught up. WOW, the number of coincidental popups and convenient crossings of character has reached utterly ludicrous levels. The show was never …
  • Incidentally just realized he was the lead vampire familiar in Penny Dreadful, and he was great in that too.
  • Coming back a year later has been disorienting, even though I was binging up to this point and finally caught up with the live show. I was happy to see Mags' husband was John Lynch--I've enjoyed seeing him pop up in things since 1995 in Roan Inish, …
  • Fascinating. It's both informative and horrible that they didn't die of anything as simple as lead poisoning but rather long, slow exposure and starvation. Good times. 
  • Please tell me they aren't holding out on the killer til the stinger...
  • Also, for all this business about Richard being so taken aback because he thought they were seeing each other, his perception of their relationship has always bothered me. He's the one saying things are dates, and she doesn't agree it is a date. He …
  • One thing I'm appreciating about the expanded role of Alan is how textbook his situation is. In Understanding the Borderline Mother (and other related books) there are types of Borderlines and corresponding partners. For every Queen, like Adora, the…
  • 1. I too cannot call this show Sharp Objects anymore at all thanks to Bald Move. 2. The more ridiculous Jules-Pierre Mao, aka JOEUHLS PIEHH MEOW gets, the better. Doctor_Nick said: Let me see here, that would be: #4. We Don’t Speak Of What …
  • Seemed to me that whatever was going on with Marian was a lingering illness that got worse and worse, as would be very Southern Gothic. I could be wrong with that.

  • Just listening to the podcast and I thought for certain that Amma ran because she was angry that nobody was looking at her anymore. She got more and more resentful that Camille wasn't looking at her. As soon as the fight whipped up and it was ruinin…
  • I love Discovery, and I adore Patrick Stewart. Happy to continue paying for more original Star Trek content to be delivered directly to my eye holes. Bring back Jason Isaacs and I will be utterly beside myself. Praise Cthulhu. 
  • Murderbear said: I think we all got the "stepdad vibes" from Alan because I'm sure Adora was stressing how SHE lost a daughter. No one feels pain like she does. Think of when they were clothes shopping and the daughters were starting to bicke…
  • Marian and Amma are Alan's children with Adora. Seems like there's about 5 years' difference in the show between Marian and Camille.  Preaker is Adora's maiden name. I'm under the impression that nobody, including Camille, knows who her father is, …
  • The blood under John Keane's bed from last episode... Could he be cutting as well? People comment on Camille's lack of journalistic skill/integrity, but not Detective Willis's complete lack of chill with Camille. For someone as wary as a detective,…

  • How would Joffrey affect the end game in a way that Cersei couldn't? Just that GRRM is getting mired in her predicament like he did with Dany? That he has to keep her alive to manage King's Landing through the battle vs. having Jaime strangle her on…
  • Garak was such a great character. Honestly might be my favorite character in all of DS9. Gul Dukat is close but he's not technically *from* DS9, I suppose.
  • It's difficult to know who it could be without also knowing at what point he said that in his writing process. Killed like, it was already at the printers, or killed like it's in his outline and he can't figure out a way around it? The best I can fi…
  • I did get the impression that Adora was a teen mother from that conversation. It's a rare adult that has a baby to make their own mothers love them.
  • This is totally accurate regarding the trick plot if they're working together. Even Rollo loves a good surprise.
  • Drogo most likely, unless Rollo was berserking. It could get close, because he's a beast on the shrooms. Ragnar hands down. A more fair match against Jon Snow would be Ubbe. Tormund unless Floki'd determined the gods needed a ginger sacrifice, the…
  • This episode was a study in what it means to be an unreliable narrator. There's Camille, who wavers between being triggered and hallucinating, and then Adora, who creates her own narrative and declares it to be so. People who are genuine borderlines…
