  1. I don't think it would, categorically. And it's not like the authorities would have an investment in probing too closely. And what did they say the cause of death was? In fact, they could have dumped the body, made it look like an accident, etc. There were a lot of ways out of this situation; I think this genuinely qualifies as a plot hole.
  2. Please see the top of this page.
  3. Exactly. Because that's what would logically happen if they were leaving, and it shows how much they will miss everyone and vice versa, reinforcing the fact that they think of the Ridge as home when we see they're still in the past. When they finally go back to the future, they can skim the goodbyes now, and it'll have been established that they'd only do so because of an emergency. All made perfect sense.
  4. Well, at least he as good as admitted his band had been setting the fires when he told Marsali they'd burn the houses in Fraser's Ridge down.
  5. I'm just surprised they didn't use the obvious solution of saying Mr Innes killed him to defend Jocasta. I know he's older, but it wouldn't be physically impossible, especially with adrenaline.
  6. Richard Rankin explanation matches exactly what I thought about Roger's thought process. These past few episodes, he had clearly become part of life at Fraser's Ridge over the months and years and I didn't feel his wanting to go back to the future was much more than a sense of obligation. As for it not having been mentioned before that you would go to the time you're thinking of, that's not quite true, because Claire, Bree and Roger all focused on the person they wanted to reunite with when they went through the stones, though Claire's first unplanned travel was apparently random (she might have had the time period she and Frank had just been researching on her mind, though).
  7. Perhaps they followed the signs of a party of people moving away from Fraser's Ridge until they found the Browns' encampment, between Fraser's Ridge and Brownsville, which would make clear the Browns were indeed whom they were looking for. From their faces and the way they said it, I didn't find it ambiguous that when Bree and Roger both said they were thinking of home, they meant Fraser's Ridge.
  8. I'm pretty sure Doctor Atomic knew that, and was just referring to how Lionel's wife taking Claire's advice was his own fault.
  9. He's referring to the threat of human extinction he talked about in this episode, not a literal war. He believes that without Rehoboam at 100% humanity is doomed, and of course the other rich and elite don't realize it.
  10. Serac told Maeve that it still doesn't have all the data on everyone and the data from the park is a more complete picture of the human mind (after all, Rehoboam doesn't involve brain scanning, just predictive algorithms from past behavior and records). Credits, interviews and the Delos Destinations website (where you can subscribe to official Delos Destinations emails) say Dolores. Captioners are notoriously imperfect. And even the captions usually say Dolores, on my TV at least. No, the timeline in the pre-season trailer said there was a thermonuclear incident in Paris:
  11. She created a body identical to Musashi's because she thought it would be convincing as a Yakuza leader, apparently. Why did you think that? In Season 2, we last saw him letting Halores out of the park. No, it was in the far future. As the Emily duplicate said, the system was long gone by then. The showrunners said that the mind of the William in that last scene had been copied into a Host body and was being run through tests. It certainly seemed like something calamitous happened in the meantime, no idea if humans are still alive or what. Exactly what I was thinking. That kind of behavior isn't going to inspire trust that if he can access the Sublime, he won't kill the Hosts who are inside of it. Dolores wouldn't trust that the access codes wouldn't get to Serac, and Serac can shut Maeve's brain down if she double crosses him. We know the prime Dolores transferred herself into a new Dolores body and put a different pearl (a copied Dolores) into the Hale body, because we saw her ease the new Halores into her new life in the flashback that began the previous episode. Also, Halores asked Dolores why she brought Bernard back. The prime Dolores (in the Hale body) was the one who did that. Thank you. If you hadn't said it, I was going to. Maybe people mistakenly think she was named after Delos? Daenerys. It has an E between the A and N when not shortened to her pet name Dany. They don't have their targets' memories. If they did, Halores would have already known the passcode for communicating with Serac, and the fact that Hale was the mole. Also, copying human memories to Hosts is supposed to still be hard at this point in time. Host!William exists in the future.
  12. More like the impact if they disperse.
  13. No, she doesn't. She only has the publicly available information on Hale, plus what Dolores could tell her about Hale from meeting her. Hence Host!Hale not knowing about the recording Hale made until she saw it, and not knowing Hale was the mole or what her password for contacting Serac was. Dolores encrypted the Sublime when she visited the Forge in the Hale body with Bernard. As Dolores said in the premiere, the system isn't a true AI. It's a predictive algorithm. She considers it a false god (and herself and the other hosts the true gods). She either wants to destroy it to take away a predictive advantage her enemies have, or take control of it herself. Host!Hale questioned why Dolores brought Bernard back because "he tried to stop us". So she was someone who was with Dolores when she attacked the Delos forces, and who saw Bernard. No. That new body we briefly saw made was the new Dolores body, not the Hale body. We only saw the face in alabaster form in that scene. Once it was done, Dolores put herself in it and someone else in the Hale body. That's why we see it being made before Host!Hale wakes up. As for how Dolores put her own pearl in a new body, it would be easy enough to tell the printing machine's arms to take it out of one head and place it in the other. It also occurs to me that if they acted without approval and something went wrong, they could be personally sued. Host!Hale said that seeing Thomas reminded her of something she'd been missing in order to feel like herself. So that would be the opposite of losing herself in the Hale body. That predator line was about her original self. It means there are three trillion dollars unaccounted for that should be somewhere, and that Serac has them. It's unclear how she got the name associated with that. Dolores and Host!Hale did know those things. Host!Hale recognized Hale's ex-husband as soon as she saw him in the apartment, remember? She was only surprised because she hadn't been expecting him. And she had been late to pick up Nathan multiple times because she wasn't emotionally invested in him, so he kept slipping her mind. Host!Hale originally talked about a playdate because she didn't realize Thomas, the new friend with a dog Nate was talking about, was an adult. When she saw them together she realized he was a pedophile because of the way he was stroking Nate, and his lying about how when they'd met. It was clear it was the same guy because Nate called him his friend Thomas both times.
  14. It was a miscarriage brought on by stress, when she learned Jamie was dueling Black Jack.
  15. Which makes it occur to me that not everyone will be able to read Claire's notices. Though they may be able to ask a friend who can. IIRC, the last digit of the year was illegible, so they only know the decade. But they have told Claire and Jamie.
  16. Well, this series/this finale seems prophetic now. Hopefully it won't be as devastating as the Prime outbreak.
  17. He was only able to make one for Maeve because he constructed Maeve's new body with a pause function for the switch to trigger. The "divergences" in Rehoboam's predictive output. He and Liam Sr. were co-creators, and apparently the latter was the public one. Dolores got Seurac's name from the man she replaced last episode. He locked Liam Jr. out of the system after his father died, and Liam Jr. implied he may have killed him as well.
  18. And Roger was paying attention when the first man made the oath, so he remembered the words. I think Morton going first was just a demonstration that there were people at Fraser's Ridge who were grateful to Jamie for giving them a community and wanted to show their loyalty. That works best if it's *not* someone familiar to us. Don't know why people are questioning it, to be honest. Yes, it was said last season that that was going on. Since Ellen's pearls are a family heirloom given by Jamie to Claire and then Claire to Bree as her inheritance, they aren't borrowed. The caption was wrong. The lieutenant and the redcoats were there and didn't catch that Jamie intended to eventually rise against them. Since he didn't announce that. He's going to go on a military operation soon, so rallying everyone isn't suspicious in and of itself. A Chad or a Chip, it was.
  19. That's funny, I tend to find real weddings not terribly interesting but I enjoyed that one a lot. Every moment of it was really beautiful and well done, and everyone there deserved an episode with no violence or grief. Tyron was leaving a platoon of redcoats with him, with the understand he'd take them hunting for Murtagh in a few months along with all the Fraser's Ridge men who were fit and of age. Jamie wanted to impress on the Fraser's Ridge men to be loyal to him (and not to Tryon) so he can count on them to fight with him against the redcoats when the Revolutionary War eventually comes. Claire told Bree that they knew you could go through pregnant because she did it, but they didn't know if you could take a babe in arms. She was telling Bree that if she was going to decide to go back, she had to do it before the child was born, without Roger.
  20. I see, thank you. I'm more familiar with books, where the Acknowledgements can be at the front (as when the author credits me for editing). But at least it would be a specific section before the footnotes.
  21. Yeah, I think Dr. Sturgis should have involved Sheldon's parents and gotten them to help him make him see reason and that it would be especially strange for someone his age to be given a co-author credit. Even if they're not scientists, they don't have to be in order to see Sturgis's point and tell Sheldon he was being unreasonable. Sheldon has caved when they've put their feet down or explained things to him before. It would be appropriate for them as his parents to know what happened. As it stands, Sheldon just had one conversation with Connie about it in the car, and no one told Mary or George what was going on (while it was happening; obviously, they'll have heard by next episode). Yeah, exactly. Sheldon supposedly likes rules, so if there are rules about the level and nature of his contribution he ought to be able to find them. If he did deserve more than a footnote, he should make the effort to make a logical argument. And if he can't have what he wanted, then he has to accept whatever the rule is, like everyone else. I think they interact more like two children, given that Dr. Sturgis is young at heart. But Beany Malone didn't say Sheldon was entitled to co-authorship, just to more credit than he was getting. A footnote sounds both easy to miss and like it might just say "the author would like to acknowledge Sheldon Cooper" without saying what he did. Something near the front would perhaps be better. That academic reviewer would have to see why the figures were wrong, which apparently required advanced physics knowledge that even Sturgis himself didn't register at first. Sheldon then not only pointed out the error but had a long brainstorming session with Sturgis thinking of ways to calculate the neutrino thing differently, and proposing entire different underlying scientific premises for the theory so that the result would resolve properly. Which is more than a bit of work, and without Sheldon the paper would have either been sent back to the drawing board for a solution Sturgis may never have come up with, or been published and been an embarrassment. But it's not enough for him to be co-author, when it was Sturgis's theory in the first place and he had done twenty years of foundational work towards it without which there would be no theory and no paper. People can be honest and generous in most things, but academic credit is still something scientists get funny about. Professional reputation is a whole 'nother thing from daily life and calls on a whole 'nother side of oneself. If there's one thing about himself a man like Dr. Sturgis who knows he is awkward has pride in, it's his work and physics abilities.
  22. Oh yeah, I played Oregon Trail a lot in middle school, though it was a later version than this with more advanced graphics. I think we may also had Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? and Where in the U.S.A. is Carmen Sandiego?, but I might be remembering those ones from my personal computer.
  23. I'm not sure what you mean here. Are you under the false impression that autistic people don't get depressed by the idea of being friendless or alone? Because we do. Also, we are no more or less likely than neurotypical people to be thoughtless. That's a personality trait. Most people, autistic or otherwise, while they may not realize how their behavior affects others, do care how their behavior affects others. And therefore some of us spend a great deal of our time worrying about it. Thoughtless people (like Sheldon often is), whether autistic or neurotypical, don't care.
  24. I'm pretty sure women have always been as cunning as they are now, even if not always able to express it openly.
