  1. Thank you! I totally missed that.
  2. I'm sorry if this has been addressed somewhere already but I'm having trouble remembering the details in this season. Did they ever resolve Beth's "pregnancy"? Is she still supposed to be pregnant? Did Rio figure out she isn't? How much time has actually supposed to have passed since the beginning of the season?
  3. Rudi is insane. I'm never certain why a person (usually one of the women) thinks that giving another person a shrieky dressing-down will somehow eventually win them over. A calm discussion is usually the better option if you're feeling - however incorrectly - that you've been wronged. But then again it's silly of me to expect that with this franchise. 😊 I thought Ryan had a lovely voice, far nicer than Jamie's. Hers wasn't bad, just not as strong as his. And agree that his was nicer than Trevor's. I was bummed but not surprised that Jamie picked Trevor and was delighted that Rudi picked Ryan even though that had producer-driven written all over it. I thought Sheridan was really nice and am glad he got to stay. I was a bit put off at how many times we saw some of the men pressuring the women for a kiss on the first night. It was. . . kind of gross. The serenading is always cringey but I guess it's going to be par for the course with this show so I'm going to have to prepare myself for it with more than just one glass of wine. 😂
  4. That's the church where I got married! It's Holy Family Church in Chicago and it's absolutely stunning. And the parishioners there are so lovely and welcoming. I'm delighted it *finally* made it onto one of the Chicagos. ❤️
  5. I absolutely cracked up at this exchange. Beverly: On your verbal portion you got in the 90th percentile! Pops: That's really high! (high-fives Adam) Beverly: On your math you got in the. . . bottom fifth percentile. Pops: That's really low. Adam: Is it? I'm not really a numbers guy. Pops: Yeah, I'm getting that. 😂
  6. I agree. And then we'll have to go through a period of Sylvie mourning the loss of her mother and being distraught over not getting to be in her half-sister's life, and of course Casey will swoop in with all the comfort he has to offer and then. . . LOVE.
  7. I *really* didn't like this episode. I was so uncomfortable with the entire Carol storyline. While I understood why corporate wouldn't have fired her (the fear of being sued for discrimination against someone with a mental disorder rang true), I don't believe that they would've put her back in the same store as the person she had actually threatened. I would imagine they would've given her the option of moving to another store or, if she refused as they mentioned she did, laying her off with some sort of severance/payoff. I just can't believe they would've continued to open themselves up to the repercussions of her actually harming Sandra or causing a hostile work environment for all the employees. Amy/management not wanting to involve HR gave me some really unpleasant flashbacks, too. I worked for a company where there were some serious issues happening on my team and my manager talked us out of going to HR every time with the same rhetoric that Amy used: we don't want HR monitoring everything we do, we don't want HR looking into how we operate, HR will cause more trouble than they'll solve. It was awful feeling trapped like that, and seeing Amy do the same thing to Sandra made me a little sick. The Jonah storyline bothered me, too. He used to be a hopeless idealist but now he's just kind of an idiot, desperate to be liked and desperate to be relevant but not in an amusing way. It was just pathetic. As someone upthread mentioned, if Cheyenne is the cool head in a situation, you know you have some serious problems. And the way Mateo and Garrett abused that poor guy was the shit cherry on top of the shit sundae. The story initially had some promise but it took a steep downturn when it became clear that they were taking advantage of the poor guy's financial situation just to have a little free time at work. Especially when the guy was actually experiencing physical pain. I would've much preferred it if they had him running around the store doing odd jobs and having the rest of the employees look at him with the same "Who the fuck is that?" reaction that Amy had at the end. The only parts I liked were Cheyenne's accurate assessment that Jonah has a narc vibe (indeed) and Garrett calling Celine Dion "white Whitney Houston." Otherwise, this episode was no bueno.
  8. I remember when it finally turned out to be lupus, too! I had to Google it to find the actual episode: Season 4, episode 8 "You Don't Want to Know." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_Don't_Want_to_Know It had to happen sometime, right? 😄
  9. My husband and I don't have it set up on our phones. I don't even turn on my Location Services unless I absolutely need to. I have issues with privacy. 🤷‍♀️
  10. TV medicine has taught me it's always Lupus! House taught me it's never lupus!
  11. See, and I don't remember any of this. The only time I remember her talking about her family before this episode is the first time she turned up on the show when she told Trudy that she became a cop because of how well Trudy treated her as a kid when her father's restaurant was robbed while she was there and he was pistol whipped and she was waiting at the precinct worried about whether he'd survive. And in terms of violence in her past, I only recall there being an implication of an incident between her and the Man In Black from Lost when she was undercover, which sucks yeah but is a risk of her job. That's why all of this seemed contrived to me, not because I thought Hailey herself was being shady but because it seemed like the writers were changing her history to generate sympathy.
  12. Totally agree. If it was nothing more than a kiss, she would've let it go by now or just told Ethan about it and emphasized that it was nothing. But it's clearly not nothing for her; between her obsession over this tiny indiscretion and her apparent jealousy over whatever connection she perceives is between Natalie and Crockett, she clearly is into him. I can't stand her.
  13. I'm not particularly fussed about Sergio touting himself as a political designer. Let him have that. If he was inspired by the polar ice caps melting, great. I'm looking forward to seeing if his collection bears that out. His mini-collection did what it was supposed to do, at least for me, and that's make me want to see the rest. A few alterations to that first look (make it sleeveless, nip in the waist, get rid of the train) and I'd wear it over a bandeau and a pair of skinny jeans. I liked the top half of the second look but not the bottom. And I loved his last look. To me it was the clearest representation of his inspiration as the shiny bits gave me the impression of shards of ice glinting in a pile of snow under the sunlight. Nancy's collection was all right. I think what bothered me the most about the first dress was the skirt-into-a-cape thing. What woman wears a cape? Especially one that ties around your neck like Supergirl. I would've much preferred if the skirt was somehow manipulated into a cowl similar to the one in her third look. It would've been a really nice thread tying the looks together. I really liked the pantsuit. To whomever upthread who said it reminds them of something Zendaya would wear, YES YES YES. Hair and all, I absolutely and immediately envisioned her rocking that. The judges did Nancy a disservice by encouraging her to remove the cowl in her last look. I'm betting they were expecting something more interesting under it and when they saw it was just a basic halter dress, they were backed into a corner of having to insist that it was much improved without it. They were wrong. I hope she ignores them and puts it back on because without it, the only thing speaking for that design is the fabric. Victoria's mini-collection did the opposite for me that Sergio's did: I'm no longer interested in seeing what else she has to show. Of all the opportunities for her to go balls to the wall with the aesthetic she was so proud of during the competition and she decides to send down a bunch of pieces that you could find at any Ann Taylor Loft. The only thing I liked of hers was that sparkly jumpsuit but it was nowhere near special enough to make me want to see if she had anything else of interest in her collection. I think Geoffrey made the right choice in sending those particular looks down the runway, for no other reason than he really needed their feedback. I hope it doesn't backfire on him and get him eliminated as I'd like to see what his whole vision was. The skirt in the first look moved beautifully, and the puffer jacket didn't bother me that much as it seemed more artistic than functional. I thought the idea of the second look was kind of cool but the execution was a little off. If it was longer and fit tighter around the waist, I think I would've liked it more. As it was, it just seemed ill-fitting to me. I wasn't keen on his third look. The fit of the coat bothered me (too long? too puffy? not puffy enough? I don't know) and the dangly things reminded me too much of that other dude from a few seasons ago that had a penchant for straps. If he can afford to, he should scrap it altogether. All in all, with the exception of Victoria's I'm looking forward to seeing their collections. Oh and before I forget, Christian was a damn delight in this episode. From his amused reaction to Nancy's cutout of him to sashaying around the workroom in Geoffrey's huge black coat, he utterly charmed me.
  14. Little Ed was born in 1992 (season 4, episode 22), which would make him around 27/28 right now. Harris was born in '97 which would make her around 22/23 now. Seems they de-aged both the kids about 6 or 7 years so I guess yay for that bit of consistency? 🤷‍♀️ I can't deal with the actor playing Little Ed anyway because he's always going to be the little asshole that murdered the cute ME on L&O: SVU. 😊 Except that Darlene said after Ed had a second family he ghosted them. That second family was . . . Crystal and Lonnie, plus Ed Jr. and the baby girl. We know Crystal didn't ghost the Conners. And I find it highly unlikely she'd lose custody of her kids to Ed or that she would be so estranged from them that Ed could keep them away from the Conners for 20 years. DB in CMH is right, for plot purposes, Crystal simply did not exist in this episode. The only way any of this makes sense to me is if the writers decided to dismiss Crystal marrying Ed altogether and Ed had Little Ed and Angela with a totally different, never-introduced-to-the-audience woman.
  15. Every interaction between Ben and the coach had me in stitches. Particularly: Coach (to Michelle): He a little jackass. Ben (on the phone): Say that to my face! Coach (bending down, hands on hips, face right up to the phone): YOU. A LITTLE. JACKASS. 😂😂😂
