    Oh no! I avoid all spoilers, and luckily missed that! But the red letters spelled “Anna Sewell, “ I believe, the author of Black Beauty.

    What's funny is that Oxford was in this episode, just not the venerable older buildings. The police station where there was a long set of concrete steps leading up to a modern building is the English faculty library at Oxford. The opening street scenes were Oxford, and the PSA with Bright was Oxford. Am I remembering correctly that the little girl was missing for a week before she was found? I think Thursday said at the station (before she was found) that she had been missing that long. Yet the pathologist said she had only been dead for 24 hours. That is horrifying -- those people that took her in rather than got her medical care basically assured that she would die a slow death. Who does that? What were they going to do if she got better and could have recognized them? It makes no sense at all. I understand there was initial shock -- but after a few days, what were they thinking? And their own daughter had to have seen the injured child. ?????

    Yes, see back on page one of this thread. PBS went through the final credits at double speed -- not fair to red-letter readers!

    Oh, you mean the whole outdoor, with seedcake and drinks, was in the PBS airing? I don't know how I missed that! ETA: Thanks for the clarification above, that this scene indeed was cut by PBS.

    Another cut scene: Apparently there was a scene where Endeavour goes to the home of Max (medical examiner) and they sit in a pretty backyard on wrought-iron lawn furniture and eat seedcake and drink. I stepped away for 60 seconds (and missed Win), but don't think I could have missed this.

    Oh, thank you! What were the editors thinking?!!! The pelican makes no sense unless we have seen the full PSA! Not vaguely depressing at all -- it was full-out humiliating! Were these the same thug cops who threatened Trewlove last season? The fact that they have no redeeming qualities is reassuring -- they have no place to go but out!

    So, Stanley died as the result of bad heroin? Just a sad end to a terribly sad life. You’d think his aunt and uncle could have told him more about his mother— the questions to Thursday sounded like Stanley had little information about her. And, the photographer/kidnapper just told a girl her parents were dead, then kept her in a house nearby? And he planned to keep the original girl as well as Rosie? And he called the police into his home for missing snuff boxes?!

    No, Morse in uniform was a one-time fall from his former status after the reorganization of the Thames Valley Polce force. But it does appear that Morse and Thursday will be in conflict with the coarser officers this season. But I'm hoping for a payoff eventually, with Morse and Thursday exposing their corruption.

    When was Win in the episode? I completely missed her!

    PBS went through the final credits WAY too fast -- no time to get all the screenshots of the red letters with a final "clue" or epigraph to the episode. I got NASEWELL, but missed a screen or two. Not sure where letters are missing. I could not keep straight who all the girls were. Will watch again just to try to sort them out. And are we to assume that Thursday decided to "go along" with the corruption of the sleazy inspector to whom he reports now? Also, I did not understand the problem Thursday saw with releasing the old murder evidence of the case of the murderer who was hanged. Normally not this dense, but parts of this were confusing. And why on earth would the snuff collector CALL THE POLICE to his home if he was in the middle of a long-term crime? I just hurt for Morse through the whole episode -- the uniform, the humbleness expected toward authority.

    “It’s 9:00, of course I’m here.” Um, I had a feeling the testiness was due to an impending day off. Yup.

    Heh, as Rachel was describing the Trump Beverly Hills home that was sold well above its assessed value to a aspiring president of Indonesia, she actually, consciously, quoted the theme song from "The Beverly Hillbillies", namely "swimmin' pools, movie stars" -- she put an emphasis on the quote that made me pay attention. I had to go check to be sure, but yup! Nice subtext!

    Thanks for the report, I did not get to see Stephanie -- just noticed that Rachel's tone was rather tart, for her!

    How interesting, in the handoff to Lawrence, that Rachel said "I never cover anything the president says, but I threw out my whole show because of this." Love hearing directly that she deliberately does not include his comments, so often noted here., She seemed a little irked at Stephanie Ruhle, at the implication that it was a treat that Rachel was hosting tonight: "Of course I'm here, it's 9:00." I think Stephanie just meant that the guest hosting was done for the evening. Man, I'd be sweating bullets if I thought I had offended Rachel! "Norway," heh. (handoff talk)
  15. Oh, FFS. I read some of the inevitable blowback on this, but did not expect the NYT to be part of the pack. Sheesh.
