  1. Season 5 was in production when Covid shut down everything.
  2. The issue I have with Rob Endres killing his wife is that he seems smarter than that. Abducting her from work and dragging her to the woods is odd for a killer for hire. There are many much more straightforward and less likely to attract attention ways of killing someone. Running her off the road for example. If Rob did hire someone he hired the dumbest hired killers ever. They grabbed her in broad daylight and two people saw it. It looks more like a chance opportunist than anything planned out. Someone was watching her and noticed she was alone and grabbed her. For that reason I like the local serial killers better as suspects. The Georgia plates to fit better with this. I wonder if even it was some whackjob who was just driving through stumbled across her. One theory that is the result of watching too much tv is that Pam had someone else who was in love with her and they did it. Either she was having an affair or she had a stalker. Hairdressers like nurses tend to have men mistake them doing their jobs for affection since its a somewhat intimate caregiving service. Especially friendly chatty ones like Pam. I wonder if a client mistook her asking about his day and how their family is for real feelings and killed her when she rejected him.
  3. I went for a walk and thought about it some more (can you tell Covid has made me seriously bored) and Rey's injuries aren't really consistent with a fall from great height. I suspect that's why the ME ruled the way he did. Usually when you jump or are thrown of a building you land head first because that's the heaviest part of the body. There usually isn't much left of the skull but the cop only mentioned a fracture to the back of the skull not the front like you would expect. Also the way he broke both his legs with bones exposed would make more sense if he landed on his feet which wouldn't make sense if he came off The Belvedere. I think he was running away from someone and jumped off the parking deck to get away in a panic and broke both his legs. Whoever was chasing him caught up to him inflicted his other injuries found the hole and shoved him through it. Sadly since his money clip was never found it might be he just got jumped for his cash and it went really badly wrong.
  4. With Rey Rivera I wonder if the answer is that the hole in the roof was already there and they beat Rey to death and just shoved him through the hole to cover up what happened. The room he landed in was no longer used the hole could have been caused by rain and decay and been there for weeks. It would explain why his stuff was just scattered about. I wonder if there would have been a way to tell the difference forensically. Edited to add: Did it seem like to anyone else that the property manager wanted to say more than he did? Like he saw something or realized something but didn't connect it until later or even until he heard from the show.
  5. People are people, while some are lazy or not suited to modern workplaces, most studies have shown people on assistance will take work if they can get it. Earthers will mine if they get the opportunity. The Belt will probably have an edge in terms of knowhow but Earth can catch up. A big part of any colonization is farming and Earth has a leg up there. Considering the shit hole Amos indicates most of Earth is most people will be clamoring to leave. Also they show some of it here with Naomi but a lot of Belters cannot live in 1G so not all of them will be able to just settle into a colony.
  6. It could also be he is somewhat tone deaf. Its not usually tested for and it can make it hard for kids to understand when mom is using her right now voice versus just casually calling them back. My sister has a similar issue and it drove my mom(especially since my mom is Cree and uses tones more than most English speakers) nuts when we were kids until we figured it out. We realized when she started to really try to sing as she got older and she didn't even realize when she was off key. Will reminds me of my sister sometimes when he doesn't acknowledge hos parents. It might have played a role in Will's language development too since Mandarin is so tonal.
  7. I also suspect in Stewart's case part of his issue with a French accent is that his usual posh Brit is actually faked. Stewart grew up in rural Yorkshire speaking full Yorkshire dialect, he deliberately adopted his current more neutral British accent in drama school. I imagine adding another layer of accent to that would be difficult. Its partly just this story reminding me of him but is Rios reminding anyone else of Tom Paris? Some of it is just that they are cut from the same pile of rogueish pilot tropes but there also seems to be a certain similar layering going on there.
  8. I think its also due to the hand injury being something the actor had as a childhood injury that was written into the script. So either Vlamis was able to have his injury repaired over the break and they're hiding a bandage or a brace or their hiding that the actors hand is still messed up.
  9. Am I the only one who noticed that both Alien women look a hell of a lot like Cameron? So much so I actually thought it was her for a second and was like woah. I think the whole spiel about Roswell feeling like home was a hint and Cameron was actually seeking out Max and her ancestors. I think Cameron might actually be the new Tess. Of course it could just be the casting director has a type but Cameron has always seemed to be hiding something. Also when Michael asked what kind of monster Tripp was I was like the kind that fought in WW2. Not to excuse anything but WW2 vets had plenty of reasons to be fucked up. He could have been interned by the Japanese or been part of the march to Berlin (which was just brutally awful some of the "soldiers" Germany sent out were actually Hitler Youth and weren't even 12 years old). Its entirely possible Michael's mother isn't the first mother Tripp had taken aim at. It's still something of a taboo showing WW2 vets as anything but noble stoic warriors it would be interesting if the show portrayed Tripp as someone who was broken and struggling after the war.
  10. Yeah that was probably deliberate. A lot Canadians are very cynical about British colonialism considering we are a direct product of it. It probably because a lot of us wound up here because colonialism screwed things up so much worse where we came from. The Clearances in Scotland, The Famine in Ireland, Opium in China all the way up to Partition in India. Even most of English immigrants to Canada were from the lower classes and were exploited by the English system. So yeah Murtry being a posh dick was probably a deliberate choice by the Canadian casting director. I do wonder what the actor thought about it.
  11. That one actually makes a lot of sense for a surgeon. They do do a lot of cutting and sewing.
  12. Vegas was largely integrated by 1960 mostly due to the efforts of Sammy Davis, Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack. It was actually a plot point on DS9.
  13. Right now I'm wondering if they killed him and buried the body out behind the beloved cabin. More realistically I think they find Kate after he beat the crap out of her. To the point where she has several broken bones. Mark took off never to be seem again.
  14. They could write around the time issues with Laconia pretty easily. Considering the way the ring gates are manipulating space it wouldn't be shocking for them to be shifting time as a side affect. Say going through the gate throws you back 20 years. It might even explain why Duarte chose that planet in particular. So he would have more time compared to the rest of the universe.
  15. Ben Solo being the son of Han and Leia and one of the strongest ties to the original trio probably had a lot to do with people investing in the character too though. It felt like a waste to me because I wanted to see him interact with Chewie again and walk back on to the Falcon. I think the question of what the rebels would do with him and how he would redeem himself were interesting questions and Abrams copped out by killing him off rather than answer those questions. While the character undoubtedly benefited from his privilege there was definitely an indication that he was manipulated by Snoke from a very young age not unlike former Storm troopers like Finn. Plus Adam Driver gave a very solid performance that was designed to make you sympathize with the character. I think its dismissive to say that people only like the character due to his race. You may not like the character but I think the reasons many people do are valid.
