    S03.E01: Chapter One: Suzie, Do You Copy?

    I thought El would only have a nosebleed after doing something intense and draining. If she has it on every little casual use of her powers, what does that mean? That she shouldn't be using them at all, that its bad for her? Or that the show thinks we need that visual cue?

    S03.E01: Chapter One: Suzie, Do You Copy?

    Why aren't Mike and Eleven making out outdoors somewhere, instead of in Hopper's cabin with him in the next room? It doesn't seem like anyone is checking up on where they are when they're out and about outside at all hours in the summer.

    What/If

    Thanks for the synopsis! I did some googling last night after posting, and I gotta say I had a lot more fun reading the reviews about how ridiculous this show is than I did actually thing the show.

    What/If

    We’ve been trying to figure out what the deal is with this show. It reminds me of when Will Farrell made a straight up lifetime movie with no comedy or redeeming features, and we watched the whole thing just because it was him and we still don’t get it why he did it. My boyfriend says maybe it’s a new genre of “guess if we’re serious” where the creators are laughing at the audience in between takes.

    What/If

    We watched the first episode, decided it wasn’t any good, skipped to the last episode to find out what happened, and still have no idea what happened. Can someone give me a quick summary of the whole season? I’m not going to watch it.

    S13.E01: Undo

    I’m years behind on this, but yes, this would have been so much better. And furthermore, if they want us to believe that Alex was righteously protecting Jo, why not set it up so she was crying when he walked in (drunk crying about him, of course, but he could misinterpret it to think she was crying about DeLuca being on top of her and too drunk to defend herself). If they set it up so it really looked like Jo was being hurt/raped, and if also the beating was less over the top, they could have had the same plot and it would have been so much better and more realistic. If he hurt DeLuca’s hand they could even have all the “he won’t be able to be a surgeon” moaning (but then of course his hand would heal and be ok later). And in real life one or two punches can do very serious damage.

    Beck would have been fine if she had just texted Annika the scary details before opening the bathroom door. Actually, text more than just Annika - text your dad, text anyone trustworthy you can think of. And then call 911. (How many jurisdictions let you text 911 now? It should really be all of them.) But, I can't really blame her - who among us could act perfectly and rationally when confronted with a shock like that?

    S01.E10: Bluebeard's Castle

    Forgive me for posting before finishing the episode, but at the beginning of the finale all I can do is root for Beck to quickly grow some street savvy! I mean, I don't know how I'd react in this situation and her whole world is being shaken, she doesn't have the luxury of having much time to think rationally, so I can't necessarily claim I would be any more clever than her in that situation... but I REALLY wanted her to get what was going on quickly enough to play along with it and get herself out of there. "Oh, Joe, this is actually kind of hot - I know its weird, but having you in control is kind of a turnon" and "wow, I've never known someone who would do that much for me, risking themselves - it makes me realize how much you love me". If she was able to say all that with the right acting, she could probably get out of there and have a chance to go straight to the police. Similarly, at the end of the last episode, since she was smart enough to try to act normal and try to get out of there, she should also have been smart enough to immediately text Annika all the creepy details she had found and that she felt she was in danger.

    S01.E01: Pilot

    Just watched the pilot and, while it’s super creepy and making me tense, I love this subversion of the “nice guy” trope. One line that really stood out about that was the one where he’s hiding in her shower and his voiceover says he knows it’s not that big of a deal because romantic comedies have taught him this kind of thing is normal and cute. What a great callout of that side of our culture. Agree some things were over the top from a practical standpoint, especially the lack of curtains (should have put her on a higher floor and had him have to climb a fire escape or something to watch her). And it might give me nightmares. But I’m onboard to keep watching, for now at least.

    S03.E07: Walter Taffet

    I’m years late in watching this, but the discussion about Stan’s backstory is fascinating and I think I agree it doesn’t quite jive with what he’s like now. Does the FBI really send family men with a wife and kid at home off on long term undercover missions? Did he really not see them AT ALL for three years? I would have assumed he was at least visiting them every few weeks.

    Rhaegar and Lyanna: So Many Questions

    Maybe this is a better thread for the question I just put in the Jon thread. I read the books first and I’m more familiar with them than the show, but I switched to the show when it was clear the books would never catch up. Just finished season 7. So so here’s my question: I remember tons of hinting and foreshadowing in the book that Jon was the son of Lyanna and Rhaeggar - for instance, Ned did a lot of thinking in book 1 about Lyanna’s “been of blood”. But I don’t remember any of those internal thoughts in the show. So what, if any, hinting and foreshadowing was there in the show about Jon being their son (before season 7)?
  12. I looked through all the pages on this board and there doesn’t seem to be a thread on the Unsullied or Grey Worm. Sorry if I missed discussion on this that has already happened. Heres my question: doesn’t castrating a boy remove the part of him that makes testosterone, and thus make it harder for him to build muscle? Doesn’t seem like a great way to build an army. Have they ever discussed this?

    S10.E02: Episode 2

    How did they get Robert’s family on with a product he didn’t even like? I’m wondering how that got set up.

    S02.E06: Behind The Red Door

    Watching for the first time. It seems Stan is going to let himself be pressured into giving Oleg information. But the obvious move for Stan is to try to exfiltrate Nina and end the operation. He mentioned he couldn’t do that because her family would be killed, but that doesn’t make sense - the end game was always to exfiltrate her. Are we supposed to assume he doesn’t want to exfiltrate her because he doesn’t want to stop seeing her? He’s pathetic and making the wrong decisions when he still has a solid chance to get out of this ok.

    S02.E05: The Deal

    I’m watching this show for the first time so I don’t know what happens. I’m not clear what Oleg’s game is, but either way it seems to me that the correct move for Stan to make Ned this immediately tell his superiors and try to exfiltrate Nina. Why is he acting like this is something he can be blackmailed over? But I assume for TV plotting purposes that won’t happen - wonder what his reasoning will be.
