  1. Has anyone watched this? I have about half an hour left of the last episode, but this crime has always fascinated me once I became aware of it. (I wasn’t born until 15 years after it happened). However, I’m from Illinois and I’ve been to that exact spot in Starved Rock multiple times, and I stayed at that same lodge in the park once. Coincidently, I’m also an appellate criminal defense attorney, so I’m very curious what others think about whether Chester committed the murders.
  2. Yep! I haven’t watched the Hulu doc (yet), but this is very true, and not only in federal or white collar criminal cases. For 20 years, I’ve lived and worked as an appellate criminal defense attorney in the second largest county in the country which includes a major, populous city nearly always in the national news for its so-called “out of control” violent crime, and even 86% of our cases are disposed of by guilty pleas. And this is in state court where the vast majority of cases are not white collar, as opposed to the SDNY, where certainly the assistant U.S. Attorneys are more comp
  3. “There’s just no way that Jen has the ability to be harmful or hurtful or disrespectful.” Did Jen’s aunt not watch last season of the show? 🙄🙄🙄. Or maybe they’ve just never met or something. 🤷🏻‍♀️
  4. I’m not a doctor or a pharmacist, but certain medications come up often in my line of work, so I know a little bit about them. Topamax is an anticonvulsant and is also used to treat migraines. Klopopin and Ativan are both benzodiazepines and are used to treat seizures, anxiety, and panic attacks. Benzos in general can be addictive. Methylprednisolone is a corticosteroid used to replace the hormone the adrenal gland produces, to treat severe allergic and asthmatic reactions, and in general is an anti inflammatory used to stop flares of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthri
  5. I’m from Illinois and I’ve always been fascinated with this story. There’s a documentary about it called All the Queen’s Horses. I think it’s still on Netflix.
  6. I believe that the max amount of garnishment per paycheck is 25% of the person’s disposable income, so 25% of what’s left after taxes, etc.
  7. I’m curious about the white brick house that James and David sold in the previous episode. I was under the impression that brick houses don’t do well in earthquakes, and that’s why there are so few brick homes in California?
  8. Yes! Especially if anyone remembers season two (I think it was season two?), when Russell threatened to sue Camille (and maybe the rest of the cast?) for talking about his abuse of Taylor. Kyle wouldn’t let Taylor and Russell inside to attend the party. But she’ll still film with Erika despite Erika threatening Sutton with a lawsuit?
  9. How many children does Paulina have? When she first appeared on the show last season(?), Mike said that she has three kids. Then, a few episodes ago, Mine said Paulina had two children. But then tonight he said that he’s helping to raise “a girl and two children.” WTF?!!
  10. Yep! When he said something like, “we thought it would be better if she wasn’t around negative people,” he initially said, “I thought it would be better . . . “ then quickly rephrased to “we.”
  11. Yep! I live in Chicago and pretty much everyone in my neighborhood wore masks outside until very recently. Even while walking our dogs alone.
  12. I totally agree on both points. I NEED to see how that condo turns out. As for living near a fire station versus an elevated train, I've lived near both (not at the same time), but in Chicago not New York. My first apartment (second floor) out of college was across the street from a firehouse, and it was WAY more good than bad. The firemen were super nice, and always remembered my dogs. And the sound wasn't really much different than the sound of living in any major urban areas. A few years later, I lived in a different second-floor apartment, this time right next to the el. I got u
  13. Holly Golightly was a prostitute. I’m guessing that Ramona never read the novella, because talking about sex during “an elegant Breakfast at Tiffany’s dinner” isn’t out of place.
  14. I think the trust Mama Dee has control over is D’Andra’s trust from her stepfather, Mr. Simmons. It would be odd for Mama Dee to have control over a trust D’Andra’s biological father left his daughter, especially since he divorced Mama Dee when D’Andra was six, he died when she was over 18, she and is now in her 50s. But that also doesn’t explain why D’Andra needed more money from Dee for her company, unless D’Andra didn’t want to dip into her own funds for what was her mother’s business?
