  1. Here’s an example below about mice inheriting a distaste for a certain smell for those who are interested. Regarding the Holocaust generational trauma study, I wouldn’t say that it was “debunked”- the author of the opinion piece posted above was just pointing out weaknesses like small sample size and saying that study was overinterpreted - not saying the research was somehow fraudulent. The field is clearly still in beginning stages. But, it’s not pseudoscience. Also including a more recent BBC article that gives some broader context. https://news.emory.edu/stories/2013/12/smell_epigenetics_ressler/campus.html https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20190326-what-is-epigenetics to bring it back to the show, I think it is reasonable to have a character studying this; however, the idea that you could see these types of effects in one family is a stretch; I would agree it is much more likely joanie’s issues were related to direct trauma rather than inherited trauma.
  2. neither of these things are fringe. I have friends who are neuroscientists and study epigenetics and inherited trauma. It is fascinating! agree that Cole would never have trash-talked Allison to Joanie. Totally unbelievable that he wouldn’t have told her all the time how much her mother loved her. I also thought it was ridiculous that Noah wouldn’t have seen or heard about Joanie in the past 30 years. Also agree it was very odd Noah bought the Lobster Roll. Helen would never have agreed to that so it must have been after she died? Plot contrivance so that things could go full circle. All that said, this episode was beautifully acted; I thought the reunion of Helen and Noah for no good reason but because life is short and they loved each other to be touching and somewhat believable, and I loved the ending with the kids forgiving Noah and eating cake outside the hotel room. I also appreciated the touches of comedy in the finale; Helen’s mom being around to bug her for her entire life was a great touch.
  3. Agree about Koracick being flattened out as a character. It’s like they turned Greg Germann into his previous Ally McBeal character and forgot that Koracick had a soul. You’re left to wonder what Teddy ever saw in him, when I thought they were the superior couple. i also thought the person falling from the sky was treated rather strangely. Did they die? Who were they? There were jokes about human ice cubes falling, the title “it’s raining men,” - I’m assuming this person died and that they were a real person, and it seemed to me a rather flippant way to treat it.
  4. I’m not sure that it was. She asked, and I think he just agreed so that she would go along with remaining in charge.
  5. Heartbroken for Cindy. Please go back!!!!
  6. I so agree! And when I realized he was going to be in this episode I got so excited thinking for SURE he would play a part in Rose’s capture. THAT was the happy Michael ending I was looking for after they destroyed the Jane/Michael relationship for no reason. Would have preferred they left him dead to what we got.
  7. How does Wallace afford that new house on physics teacher salary??
  8. Garrett is not a nice guy.
  9. And what the heck was their situation?
  10. For me it’s a young Patrick Swayze!
  11. If the Night King is heading toward Bran and knows where he is at all times, why didn’t they put Bran in the Iron Islands?
  12. I’d say Dany has had her share of rape and family members murdered in front of her.
  13. Beg to differ on choice of modifier.
