  1. Did we ever find out why Aulus was killing and burying girls in the woods?
  2. I think there’s some sort of weird requirement on this show that one sibling should carry around another sibling’s head at all times.
  3. I absolutely loved Nina and Hartmann showing up at the end. I really hope those two are a couple. It would be perfectly bizarre and bizarrely perfect. Ditto, I really enjoyed Tina’s story in both 86 and 89. I’m a little surprised there was no cameo from her brother this season.
  4. Amena’s story seems to have come out of nowhere this season. I understand how surviving something like that explains some of her behavior, but I’m not sure if I get why it happened. Evidently Veran knows about it. Did he (ugh) arrange for it to happen? If so...why? Was her father just a disgusting creep? I loved the whole mushroom storyline from the moment we saw the two sentries dicking around in the woods to the final scene of the heads flying. Talk about the Romans being literally their own worst enemies.
  5. Does anyone else think Cait is (or will become) Bouadica?
  6. I guess episode 2.4 was The Finger Episode. I think might have been the most gruesome episode yet what with said fingers, the torturer walking into the fire, and the two brothers hanging disemboweled in the forest. Did Harka need their “energy” or something? Did he just not want to send them back home? WTF? I guess Amena wasn’t terribly happy at home. She looked like she’d rather be undergoing a root canal when she showed up at the gates of her sister’s city (kingdom?). I’m very curious as to why Divis seemed so disturbed by Cait’s vision.
  7. I watch it! I’ve lost track of how many people have been decapitated onscreen. I love the weird mentoring relationship/buddy movie that Divis and Cait have going on. I really want Divis to wear that antler/birdcage hat every episode. And now Phelan has turned into the ultimate deadbeat dad who also drags his dead sister’s head around. What’s not to like? They can call Aulus by that name all they want, but he’ll always be The Governor to me. I got a very weird kick out of he and Lucius speeding up Jesus’ crucifixion because they were hungry and bored.
  8. Eugenics was more than creating the master race at the end of the nineteenth century. There was a big push to sterilize those considered “undesirable” in physical or mental abilities or in behavior - in this case, the mistresses would be considered loose women and thus sterilized. I’m convinced there’s more to it, though.
  9. Bitsy said to Sara that the ward she was in (with the mistresses of high society men) was the “research” ward. That’s what makes me think the doctor is into eugenics - he’s experimenting on unwed mothers with secret babies. That would explain why so many of the women are sterilized. I do think he’s doing even more sinister things to them as well. Are Violet’s parents dead? I know Hearst is her godfather (and maybe biological father) and hosted the party, but is she his ward too? Marriage was one of the most important events in a society woman’s life back then yet there’s been no ment
  10. I think Señora Liñares might very well have seen something. Libby was obviously taking charcoal at the hospital, so perhaps other drugs too. Or Señora Liñares saw Libby do something to one of the mothers or babies that no one else saw. Obviously Libby isn’t playing with a full deck.
  11. Regarding Sara and the post-bachelor party, I know her being there was unlikely to have happened during that time, but it was one of my most favorite scenes. Each and every one of the characters there were outsiders for one reason or another. Sara, John, and Laszlo can play their parts but don’t feel comfortable with their high society peers. Laszlo is also foreign and Sara a woman, making them even more out of place. Marcus and Lucius are children of immigrants with unusual names and jobs. Joanna and Cyrus are limited in society due to their race. But in that bar, all of these people wh
  12. I sort of side-eyed Mr. Trenchard's insistence that they fade from Charles' life after the Brockenhursts acknowledge him. I know protecting a woman's name and image was incredibly important back then, but...was Sophia's reputation that precious still after she'd been dead twenty-five years? Even if the Trenchards didn't want to want make Sophia's "indescretion" public, couldn't they very privately acknowledge Charles too just like the Brockenhursts? That seemed like kind of a stretch to me. I think it would be interesting to see what exactly brought Oliver and Susan together. They see
  13. Hailie Sahar (Lulu) is in a new commercial for Descovy Prep HIV prevention medication. https://www.ispot.tv/ad/Zuz8/descovy-prep-up
  14. I wondered the same thing about Darlene. I think she knows about the abuse and assumes Elliot is aware of it as well. She’s always seemed baffled and put off at the fact that Elliot remembered their dad with affection. She is also the one who reminded Elliot that he jumped out the window instead of being pushed, which also makes me believe she knows. I also wonder if perhaps Mr. Alderson was abusing Darlene as well. When Elliot was recounting the room incident it seems as though Darlene knew it was in her best interests to stay in the closet, that both kids were aware of what to
  15. My husband bought (and loves) the Mr. Robot jacket and hat. He felt weird about wearing it again and I pointed this out - Mr. Robot is a protector and gets things done, and we’ve seen far more of him in the series than we have Mr. Alderson. I’d still like to know what was in Mrs. Alderson’s safe deposit box, but I think it was a metaphor for her shitty parenting of her kids.
