    Killing Eve

    I assume that Eve was just following Hugo's advice and this was why they had the previous exchange, as a hint for us: Eve: Omigawd, you're alive! Hugo: I played dead. A hero's technique.

    SEAL Team

    They were slapping their Trident wings into the coffin as a sign of respect for a fallen comrade. https://movies.stackexchange.com/questions/30481/what-is-the-meaning-of-the-badges-on-the-caskets-in-american-sniper

    Whiskey Cavalier

    I know its a trivial point, but I found the bad guys in black and good ones in white hilariously anachronistic. I know you need to tell which is which on the snow, but still...

    S06.E04: The Face Behind the Glass

    I was just about to post this. He must have had a strong feeling of deja vous :)

    S16. E24. Daughters

    Ziva is clearly another hallucination as Diane specifically said: "We are all here for you, Inside", i.e. inside his mind. This season drew quite a lot from early story lines and characters and I suspect next season will include an ongoing "Gibbs gets in touch with his feelings" character development, with maybe more "visits". I think they tried to decrease the feeling of Gibbs going crazy by showing that both Fornell and his daughter saw her and had a conversation with her that included parts of Gibbs internal dialogue. This made it more of a fanciful fantasy element than a full fledged sign of mental breakup. Ziva looked older because IRL she is but they did their best to give her the same look to indicate it the old Ziva.

    S06.E22: Robert Diaz

    Including two strong actors (Laila Robins and Brett Cullen) for a few minutes seems unlikely, so I assume both will play an important part next season.

    Gentleman Jack

    Did you catch that Miss Lister catches her looking at the camera and is kind of ... "what are you looking at?" Maybe hinting that she's going to gain a little more agency/confidence in the breathless wooing by Anne. It reminds me of Fleabag where she is talking to us all thru the first season and suddenly in the second season the priest she starts a relationship with begins noticing that she is looking elsewhere and asks her about it. Then too it seemed to hint at a special closer connection.

    S06.E19: Rassvet

    When I try and translate a Russian sounding name, I first use an online conversion from Latin to Cyrillic alphabet and than use a Russian to English translation: rassvet -> рассвет ->dawn or daybreak

    S05.E12: The Beginning...

    As an adult woman who is 5'2" (and somehow has a lot of really tall friends who are over 6' tall), this is a ridiculous rationalization for recasting. I'm pretty sure that I manage to stand next to tall people without looking like a child. You are right of course and I did not explain my point accurately enough. Its the combination of Camren Bicondova still almost baby face with her height that would have made her look way too young. After all she started the series at 14 and changed very little when it ended. So for people who have followed her thru the series it would have been very hard to accept the time jump.

    S05.E12: The Beginning...

    I was also very critical of their decision to recast. I’m sure Camren would have been excellent. But... I think that their choice (Lili Simmons) was great! Eyes, cheekbones... Even the wig was good! 😮 At first I thought so too, especially in closeups, but then she was standing next to Alfred and Barbara, in the banquet, and I realized it was not the face age that was the problem but the height. While David Mazouz really shot up during the series, Camren Bicondova remaind her short 5' 2" and would have looked like a child next to them. Lili Simmons is 5' 7" and so much more convincing as Catwoman.

    The Good Fight

    I found the firm being stuck with Blum a nice karma over firing Maia. At least they get a taste of what she had to deal with on her own.

    Whiskey Cavalier

    I was especially amused with the interactions as she is Scott Foley's wife IRL.

    S05. E16. The New Normal

    I loved all your post but apart from the factual errors there is another good reason to make up an island. They are talking about a real place where real people live and tell story that destroys it completely? This is not a science fiction series, where you see NYC destroyed and don't take it personally. This can seriously alarm a whole nation by implying their island can disappear in the next severe storm. The dangers of climate change are certainly important to talk about but not by using a real place at the present time with wrong facts to boot.

    The Enemy Within

    Twice the FBI get to a place they just got the information on and twice the bad guys arrive minutes before them and no one suspects there is a mole in their office informing on them?
