  1. I'd guess that it's a faulty scale and/or standard daily fluctuations (because there's no way I burned that many calories. And other than walking on a treadmill, I don't do any kind of workout). It's 5 pounds--how does Crystal really know she lost it for any particular reason or that it means anything at all? ETA: That said, I am still annoyed that this happens to me!
  2. It does here! I was 4 pounds heavier last night than I am right now. And I will probably be 2 pounds heavier than that if I try the damn fool scale again in an hour, and 3 pounds lighter if I weigh myself at 6 pm. You can fluctuate all day long. It's stupid and annoying and now I just judge myself by how my clothes fit.
  3. I am mesmerized by Garcelle in her talking heads wearing the sparkly lilac dress with the matching hair. She looks like a fabulous supervillain and I love it.
  4. Ugh, that song is stupid and the product name sounds like bug spray. But the lady singing the stupid song looks completely "normal"-sized to me (and I think today's size 0 is commensurate with a 1970s 6 or 8--which, yes, I realize does not at all negate the ridiculousness of a size called "0"! There also is [was?] a "00," which, oddly enough, was smaller, not larger, than regular 0).
  5. Yeah, and Martin mentioned that the police didn’t have a warrant at that point, so maybe he wouldn’t have let them through the door anyway.
  6. At first sight, Mallory didn’t know it was Kate in the window; she just was excited that Jeanette was breaking in when someone (a friend, a girlfriend) was in the house.
  7. Sorry, wasn’t thinking. But maybe he left it open when he went down there. If his original plan was to kill himself, maybe he’d want to make sure she didn’t starve to death down there. I don’t know. Maybe she shot the door open, haha!
  8. I don’t think being afraid of getting in trouble would be her reason for not calling the police; the smile indicates, to me, that she was basically pleased to know that Kate would not likely be back to reclaim her life — not that NOT helping someone out of a locked basement for fear of getting in trouble is that much less “sociopathic” than not helping because you want a perceived rival out of your way.
  9. I don’t think she’d have called in a tip; I feel like that last scene was meant to tell us that she did knowingly leave Kate there for personal gain and didn’t care. Martin said the cops had been there before and would likely come back, so maybe that’s what happened. Or maybe Kate called. What was the date that Kate was found? I forget. If it was during the school year, maybe the school contacted the police when Martin didn’t show up?
  10. Wait a damn minute — you are telling me we are NOT supposed to lock anyone in a basement?! I’ll be right back…
  11. I sometimes respond, "Do you know 1+ language, or just the one?"
  12. Speaking of I and me, I (me!) was thinking just now about how much it annoys me when a group of some kind or a business entity posts something and uses singular pronouns. Like say a clothing retailer or something or some kind of animal rescue operation — a post like “I really love this new collection!” or “I love this dog’s floppy ears!” We the readers don’t know the specific person making the post; use a collective pronoun!
  13. Yup, the teenage girls are always "old enough to know better" but guys are just being guys.
  14. I don’t disagree, but I also feel like a “normal” person’s initial gut reaction might be surprised and relieved — and then maybe later on (alone?) stopping to think “awww damn” as kind of an afterthought.
  15. Why do we not have a “mad!” reaction face?!
  16. People blame rape victims to this day, even knowing that certain now-common terminology is “a thing” and/or knowing that thing is wrong. I don’t know how many otherwise intelligent people I’ve come across who don’t justify rape, but do make sure to say stuff like “He’s at fault BUT she put herself in the situation,” as if to imply a rapist suddenly lost the ability to decide not to rape once a woman said/wore/drank some certain thing.
  17. I distinctly remember a former boss of mine talking about date rape — and using that term — in the late ‘80s.
  18. I’m such a geek, you guys—I am rewatching because I want to solve this before the finale! What is my problem—what kind of person does this?
  19. I think they did show her hiding behind a tree and laughing when he got sprayed with the sprinkler or tripping on a hose or something. And I assume that means that Mallory walked up to the door earlier to arrange that? ETA: Whoops, sorry—I just noticed that someone else posted that we did see her doing the filming.
  20. I also just noticed something in episode 2! After Jeanette, Mallory, and Vincent throw shaving cream balloons at the garden party, they run away. You can hear Jeanette say to Mallory, “hey, that’s my bike!” and Mallory then says, “who cares, let’s go” or something. Then, Kate is shown watching them pedal away, with Jeanette last, on Mallory’s bike with the card audibly flapping in the tire. So, if Kate noticed a bike with a flappy card the night Jeanette left with the snow globe and Kate has the necklace, which she knows is Jeanette’s, it seems logical that she’d think it was Jeanette pedaling
  21. Is it the same red dress she has on in the first episode? I’m rewatching episode 1 and am wondering about a couple of things. First, why did Jeanette look so troubled/scandalized (guilty?) when her friend told her and her other friend that Kate was alive? And the other thing is why was Jeanette(‘s family?) recording all the news about Kate? And also, why did Jeanette’s mom, while watching the first news story (right after Jeanette came home with the black eye), say, “isn’t that Jamie’s ex?” I feel like she would know that Kate was his ex, but what really got me was the “that”; why would s
  22. I honestly don’t know what my reaction would be if someone accidentally walked in on me naked. I feel confident in saying I wouldn’t immediately drop to the floor — but I won’t judge Crystal because life my doesn’t involve camera people (or generally someone I only really just met). I think that being temporarily mad and telling people that barging in is not cool are reasonable reactions. But I do think that, no matter how embarrassing and startling it could be, it’s not something I’d find to be a huge deal that may shape my attitude toward the person forever (unless, of course, I thought it w
  23. Right—it’s not normal behavior; that’s fine, we agree. But again, IF Crystal thinks it’s because of a legit mental problem, I think she’s being an asshole. And maybe a hypocrite too a little for going on the boat just fine but then not going to dinner (which, you know, whatever, if she just didn’t feel like eating dinner again with them). Whatever, she seems to think she’s better than everyone. Maybe she is but she could attempt to pretend she doesn’t.
  24. I'm not saying Sutton isn't crazy (or that she isn't simply an asshole). I'm saying that if Crystal actually believes that Sutton is plagued with some kind of mental illness, Crystal is being an asshole. You either really think someone is crazy or you just call that person crazy to be mean (perhaps justifiably). But if you truly think the person is mentally ill and you also deliberately mock and belittle her, you're probably the asshole in the situation. That said, I am also not saying I wouldn't be tempted to be a jerk to Sutton as well (or anyone else there too!).
  25. Yeah, I keep forgetting that part. Plus, I’m a true crime fan. PLUS, I am a chronic what-iffer!
