    @Garthgou81 I suspect he went home with Shiv, not much conversation on the drive home, and when they got home she went directly to the bedroom to change and he poured a cold glass of subpar white wine.  They then spent the rest of the night in silence - her mostly stewing about yet again being shut out by the ‘boys club’ at Waystar - and fell asleep on opposite sides of the bed, no sex at all.  I have a feeling he is realizing that although he escaped one prison, he is still trapped in another of sorts.
    You are probably right. I was hoping for some night on the town like he alluded to. But he probably just went home.

    I really wish I could have seen what the rest of Tom's night was like. Also, I knew the title ("Too Much Birthday") sounded familiar. The interview after the episode made it clear that they took it from a Berenstain Bears book that I read countless times as a kid. No spoilers for Berenstain Bears, but the plot is similar to that episode.

    @Garthgou81 my dream scenario is that she’s a plant placed by Tom & Greg, who are secretly working together to take down the entire family - but that’s not likely. I wish it were though - imagine the two people who are most on the outskirts of the family teaming up to destroy the empire.
    I know, that would be killer. But its not really how the show operates, at least so far. It would verge on the soap opera'y. But it goes back to one of the real problems with the Roy kids, if they could only work together and get on the same page, they might be able to get traction. Instead everyone is too concerned about their status and the risk by moving against their dad. Rightfully so. They come by their reactions to this stuff honestly through a childhood of conditioning and emotional abuse. But the point is still there. 
  • What are you playing?

    I'm really looking forward to Inscryption, I just keep waiting for it to come to a platform I can play it on. I've heard fantastic things.

    Jaws (rewatch) - Was listening to the podcast on it and decided to stop and rewatch.  It does hold up.
    It definitely does. I watched it last year after it was released on 4K. This scene always gets me for some reason
