    Speculation: Our Turn for the Plasma Clicker

    So, I really haven’t watched regularly since Ziva left. Emily and all others weren’t working for me after a handful of episodes. I liked Ziva 70% of the time over her run, so I am a fan. It feels like they’ve made a point of Emily being the driver of wanting to know more about Ziva. That to me, after all these years away, means they value Emily as a character. They aren’t looking to replace her. I think there will be a bonding moment next season meant to confirm fandom from Ziva to Emily. regardless, I don’t see Ziva back full time , I don’t see Emily being gone. My optimistic view/hope is that Ziva can repair relationships/be quick mentor to Emily in the 1 or two episodes she’s around, and we know she and her family (Tony/Talia). are safe even if we don’t see them. And if it leads to popping up here/there in an episode going forward, I’d love it, but would not need/expect it.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    That was a fantastic game! I think James is more susceptible to losing than Ken was at this point. Folks have figured out his advantage with DD and those brave enough are starting to think of $ totals during the game as basically point totals. Got to let old thinking go.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Uhoh! I like James. The way he has played brought me back into the fold, so to speak. And now i learn he went to UofI and shared my philosophy on class attendance? Go James Go! I-L-L- (and, no, that’s not a prelude to spelling illness:))
  5. You might want to rewatch the last minute of the Frazier finale.

    Season 40 Speculation and Spoilers

    When they did Second Chances, didn’t they already have a season in the can and aired them out of order? Any speculation they might do the same thing again?

    What is...In the Media?

    Seems like he’s playing on the word “following”.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    So, i haven't watched since last spring. It was my mother’s daily show until literally the day she died (she got 3 right that last day, even after stroke) and I just needed to stay away for awhile. James would be the kind of player my mother hated. Her general rule was champ gets two days (one, if they hopped around board😁), then it’s time to go! I find it thrilling to watch James. To me, he is the jeopardy equivalent of watching Tiger Woods in his prime where he was essentially unstoppable, setting records over and over. Or the 85 Bears, who although they had one loss, were basically no doubters for the Super Bowl win that year. It is fun to watch greatness in a given field! Also, tip of the cap to him for generating enough press to pull me back in.

    S03.E17: R&B

    It’s not so much that Randall did anything wrong, per se, but that he didn’t do anything right for Beth, as an indiviual. He did everything right from what he’s learned; that doesn’t earn him a second date. And, he utterly failed on what she found important...not bowing to obvious racism That gets into (tm) “Nice Guy” territory...I followed playbook, she didn’t respond, that’s on her, not me. Sort of like proposing repeatedly when other party says “I’m not ready yet”. sure, some might find that romantic, others can find that smothering and disrespectful.

    These Are the Previews and Sneak Peeks

    Agreed. I think future them visiting Rebecca, still stunned at losing her even though they know this was coming, will be heartbreaking. That will be contrasted with the last time the big three (when they were wee) were gathered at the hospital when mom was hurt, terrified to lose her, but they were wrong then, and she was ok. It doesn’t matter the age, but when you are sitting in a hospital knowing/waiting/fearing the death of a parent, it is awful and even when you are older and you’ve known it is coming, there are moments when you are the kid again and just want to scream.

    Empire in the Media: Read It In Billboard

    A. Chicago cops generally have a horrible history of racism. I don’t think that many of them get away with it means they are innocent B. Jussie Smollett faked a hate crime. I don’t think that him getting away with it means he is innocent C. Both of the above statements can actually be true.

    I think you are assuming facts that aren’t in evidence based on a very intentionally ambiguous flasforward!

    Randall is a (tm) “Nice Guy”.

    No! Nor should anyone Honestly.
  15. I think it was pretty clear Laurel was saying goodbye to Annalise so I think she arranged to go away with Christopher. Likely made some deal that she’d come with the brother if he’d leave her friends alone. Curious how that would play out next season. I’m not aware of the actress leaving. Teegan is lucky or “lucky”.
