    S15.E10: Week 10

    I hope some day Hannah finds out her husband has been sleeping with all the women in his office and when Hannah yells at him he says, "A good wife would never talk to me that way, you don't own me, if you really loved me it wouldn't matter because love is unconditional. It's not a matter of what I should have done, it was what I wanted to do. You have no right to pass judgement on me when you yourself are so prideful you enter yourself in beauty contests. I had sex 25 times and Jesus still loves me!" I think Luke thought he and Hannah were in love and ready to get engaged, so she would just hang out with the other guys in the fantasy suites like she did with Tyler. In fact I think that's what most of them used to do until recent seasons.

    I think this happens a lot, though, not just with Mrs. Tan. Look at the recent episode where the evil second wife of the murderer said she would have cut off the victim's fingers. She never would have been caught if she hadn't bragged to the wrong guy and I'll bet the police had suspicions that she was in on it. They knew she had lied to give her husband an alibi just as they knew Mrs, Tan had lied on the 911 call. I think they just put all their efforts into the one where they think they can get a conviction. We heard the police say how convincing Mrs Tan was on the phone -- while I thought it was some of the worst acting I ever heard. Her defense attorney would have said she never dreamed her son would resort to murder, but she lied for him afterward because she was afraid. There would be lots of that screechy crying on the stand from a tiny little abused woman, with no DNA at the scene. No jury would convict her.

    The whole episode seemed disjointed to me. Two very separate murders and only brief looks at the other characters, left me dissatisfied. The love story was just too unrealistic to me. Maybe Sidney doesn't know what he's getting into but Violet does. Interracial marriage was illegal and prosecuted in the southern states until 1967. Pretty much everyone on both sides was against it. Most nice people were in favor of equal rights and integrated schools, but still thought intermarriage was wrong, "because of the children," and the not nice ones would throw bombs and shoot guns into the homes of mixed race couples. My Methodist church in West Virginia had a new minister in 1962, transferred to us from the south because he had worked in the Civil Rights movement and his little girl had lost an eye in some sort of retaliation. If Geordie thought Sidney was making suicidal moves in the criminal cases it's good he doesn't know what he's doing now.

    Yes, Charlie got 20 years for manipulating his friend into buying a gun that was used in a felony. Who knew that was a twenty year offense? Still, I'm glad he's in prison. Whether or not the mother was the mastermind who manipulated her son (and I believe she was) and whether or not Mr. Tan was abusive (and I believe he was) Charlie either shot him in cold blood or helped his mother do it and that's still murder. As @TVbitch said, "You can't just kill assholes."

    LOL. You know, somebody, Luke's pastor, father, or almost anyone, should have told him that his testimony would be much more effective if he just said that one day he was alone he looked up at the ceiling, saw heaven, heard the voice, and knew he needed to change his ways. No one needs to know he was in the shower and when he tells that part it just puts a distracting visual in everyone's head. Poor guy needs a keeper.

    You're right, I was just thinking of his fellow frat brothers and forgot that the girls he knew were also friends and not just girlfriends.

    Hannah has never seemed so clueless as when she was telling parents why their sons almost didn't live up to her standards. Did she not know that parents tend to think their sons are the greatest catches in the world and it was up to her to prove herself worthy, not the other way around? I think that's why they call it a testimony, though. Most of those stories, including St. Paul's are of the, "I was lost but now I'm found," type. Luke and his pastor probably thought this was a great way to reach lots of other guys who might be in Luke's pre-shower place.

    Seriously. What were they hiding? Their most dearly held habits of perverse and illegal hazing? Why not just kick Robert out and let him make a few friends who aren't exactly like everyone he grew up with?

    Hope he wasn't making out in the cabin with some toothy stewardess the whole time. I was tickled to death to see Jed's family give Hannah a hard time but, really, do they know their son, the next Garth Brooks, was a burlesque dancer for all the drunken ladies? I thought his family seemed a little dumb to be looking down their noses, or through their stupid long bangs, at anyone.

    Now that you've put words to that, I realize that, for me, that demonstration of courage is the stand out feature of this whole series. I'm used to crime dramas where we see lots of cars racing and guns blazing, but the courage required by police officers is most evident to my eyes when they have to stand and face danger the way Bright did with the tiger and the others do every day when they walk into domestic issues, or face down thugs in their own territory. Bright said it in the finale, "Between a moments fear or a lifetime of regret, it's always the same choice."

    I really didn't think any of the moms liked Hannah very much, some of them were just too nice to show it. Most Bachelorettes go to the hometown dates telling the parents how amazing and awesome their sons are and what fun dates they had, but Hannah's all, "I didn't like these things about your son at first but after a few lectures and a short training course I decided to give him a chance." You can see the mothers thinking, "You can just take your camera crew and leave anytime now, I'd like grandchildren with normal eyebrows." I was really hoping Jed and Luke would both walk out during the rose ceremony pause. Hannah made it so clear that while she was sure about Peter and Tyler, the other two were just a coin toss from getting cut. It's too late in the show to be treating guys that way. There has never been a Bachelorette so convinced that she deserves to have all these men fighting for her while she doesn't need to do a single thing to deserve it. The mothers could see what kind of one-sided marriage their sons would be caught in, I wish the men could see it.

    Wonderful ending. I'm glad I was wrong about Win and she wasn't just unforgiving over the money. It was all almost too emotional for me, I feel wrung out. It made the previews for "Grantchester," seem comfortingly trivial. And yet... I'm getting ready to watch the whole thing again on the PBS site.

    The trouble is, its like people stealing from Walmart and saying, "They can afford it." It's never the CEOs of the company that bear the loss, it's the customers who pay a little more for each item or higher finance charges to the bank. I was a bank teller for years and if I came up short it came out of my minimum wage pay. I lost a hundred dollars that way one day. I knew where I had messed up, it was a woman who wanted her check cashed and $100 put in checking and I had put the hundred in checking, but cashed the whole check,too. I went to her house after work asking for it back and she refused saying, "That bank makes enough money." Marathon today! Starting with one of my favorites Arline the woman in Hawaii with a notebook fetish. Her husband with scoliosis has to sleep in the car because there is no room in the house. Now it's Lloyd with one of those terrifying Man-hoards that takes up several acres of land. At least women usually stop at the seams of their house.

    I think she wanted to be more than friends and, as she said, really was trying to impress him. Only she was trying to impress him by telling him the truth not by making anything up as she tried to say. Matt was good looking and she was lonely. He said she jumped at the chance to go out with him and when he took her home, just sat in the car like a lump for an hour -- no doubt hoping he would make a romantic move. Suddenly she was telling the true story of the murder just to keep him there a little longer. Evil and stupid.

    I felt sad for Matt who feels a burden of guilt for, as he put it, virtually taking away someone's life. He should remind himself that she had custody of several little children and responsibility for a whole classroom of third graders, yet she could casually say that she would have burned down Angila's house with a toddler in it. On top of all the other stuff it sounded like she had been leaving those little ones alone at night to sit outside Angila's house and plot murder.
