    S17.E11: All-Star Duets (2) (2019.04.09)

    I think it was Ryan Seacrest's absence from the show.

    I was wondering about that too. My guess is that Laine didn't think he had the vocal range to handle it. I think it's something he will need to work on.

    Regarding Mai, I don't believe we'll have a resolution of her story in the finale. I noticed that

    History Talk: The British Monarchy

    Anne's children weren't entitled to royal titles, but they could have had noble ones if Mark Phillips had become a peer which he chose not to do.

    History Talk: The Victorian Era

    While Feodora never returned to live in England, her 3rd son Prince Victor of Hohenlohe-Langenburg , who was married morganatically to a British woman named Laura Seymour, did. He became a naturalized British citizen and a member of the Royal Navy.
  9. Or maybe her mother got married after a while, and her husband is who Phyllis is referring to. Kind of like how Timothy Turner refers to Shelagh as his "mum."

    The Romanoffs

    Yes, her son having hemophilia has nothing to do with being descended from the Romanovs since only Nicholas and Alexandra's family was affected. I checked to see if maybe one of the other Romanovs may have married a carrier or someone with the disease, but they had not.

    Fred, the handy one

    I've been watching two shows that Cliff Parisi was in. One is "Kavanagh, QC" where he plays the office manager of a legal firm. The other is "Bramwell" which starred Vanessa Redgrave's niece Jemma as a doctor in Victorian London who opens up a free clinic for the poor. Cliff was in the first two series as a man who worked for her as a porter after his foot was amputated. Both shows are available available on Britbox, if you're interested. I think Fred's job is to work for the nuns and midwifes. I'm gussing he gets paid by the church or maybe the religious order.

    A Place To Call Home

    I have no problem with Matt becoming a villain. And yes, he was too good to be true. But there was no context to what happened. I mean, usually, there will be clues that you can point to when a character changes that much. Like with Olivia ending up with Andrew Swanson. That works because we know they were friends and that he had great affection for her even though he wanted Anna. Look how genuinely pleased he was to see her with Baby George in the hospital. Maybe it was supposed to be a case of he came literally out of nowhere, had an impact on their lives, and then disappeared as quickly as he appeared. It's also ironic that he told James that his son and the child's mother "severed all ties" and disappeared and then he ended up doing the same thing.

    A Place To Call Home

    Matt was probably the worst written character on the show, but then I think he was meant to be a plot device and not a character. I still have no idea why he did what he did. And what about his son? What was up with that? I wish he had been included in the "what happened to" segment at the end, even if it was just " No one ever heard from Matt again. He had several other failed relationships and was never able to find his son. He shot and killed himself after his business failed in the late 1970's." FTR, I have no problem with him and Olivia not getting a "happy ending." I just have a problem with his going from being "the perfect boyfriend" to "villain" with absolutely no context. Another thing I noticed in the Season 2 episode with Samantha and a very old Sarah: There was another elderly character in that scene called Leah who I assumed must have been Sarah's caretaker. I wonder if that was Leah Gold now. Or I guess Leah Gray since she married Larry.

    The Romanoffs

    I think he did his mission in France so that may be why he speaks French so well. FTR, I don't believe he is LDS any more.
