Agree with everything said above. Glad Chandrika got out of dodge before she got killed, though she's probably the best actress of the lot so it's loss in the thespian department. John looked indeed dimwitted in the cell, and how is it that he wasn't eating anything but he looked as spry as the moment they tossed him in there?
And the scene with Daniel impersonating French soldiers and talking to him, and the real French soldiers come right up behind him and he's talking to the prisoner in English, HELLO CONTINUITY, ANYONE HOME?!? And then he turns to leave and says something in French to the other two nitwits. I mean, come ON...
Bitty Betty and her Mr. Evil are perfect for one another. I hope she goes down with that ship. Margaret continues to be a clueless martyr, what did she expect when she went to see the general, who himself is indeed like a bad cartoon character. Mrs. Patmore continues to disappoint, and I can only stomach the staff and Daniel at this point. Thankfully the sets and costumes are there to distract.
And not for nothing, but I asked my mother if she's watching this and she LOVES it, I mean LOVES IT. She thinks the story is exotic and fascinating, and this from a woman who's pretty well traveled most of her life, so apparently not everyone sees the horrible writing and lame story lines that we do!
