    S03.E11: Reunion

    According to Hattley, Fisk was convicted on RICO charges only. Tower or the cop or both mentioned he was a cop killer at their meeting in episode 2, but Hattley stated that wasn't proved at his trial.

    Ben Donovan explained it before Fisk spoke. His convictions were reversed on appeal, and the government elected not to re-try him. This does happen sometimes in real life, although the vast majority of criminal convictions are affirmed (upheld) on appeal. Knowing Fisk, he probably got to at least two appellate judges (appeals are decided by three-judge panels) and the person(s) in the U.S. Attorney's office who were responsible for deciding whether to re-try him.

    Blind Items: Daredevil In The Media

    There's a slightly spoilery article about season 3 in Entertainment Weekly, with a couple of photos, here.

    S02.E07: After

    Having June serve as her editor may have unintended consequences for Serena Joy. Reading those orders could give June useful information for an escape attempt. I don't trust Eden, either. But who is she going to tell about the Handmaids exchanging names? Nick? Serena Joy? I suppose she might snitch to Aunt Lydia on one of her pre-natal visits. I can't help hoping that scene might be an epiphany for her - when it hits home that even the Handmaids' names have been taken from them - and she realizes what Gilead has done to them. Sadly, I suspect she is too thoroughly indoctrinated for that.

    How I Want The Americans To End

    These are good points. I was (obviously) thinking only in terms of witnesses to her espionage activities. Physical evidence would help build a case against her, but it might not be enough by itself to convict her. That would depend on a lot of variables that we simply don't know. If the witnesses to the bar fight come forward, that could be a problem. I do have a question about the garages. Has the FBI located the actual garage(s) P and E were using, or are they doing surveillance on suspected locations? I thought it was the latter, based on the comment about coming up empty after reviewing 1500 hours of surveillance footage, but maybe I missed something.

    How I Want The Americans To End

    I know there is a lot of sentiment in favor of Paige spending the rest of her life in prison, or even being executed. But, realistically, how is that going to happen? The government needs evidence sufficient to prove her guilt, beyond a reasonable doubt. It's certainly possible that, if apprehended, Paige would simply confess. She's so clueless, she probably wouldn't even ask for a lawyer. And she couldn't stand up to even the mildest of questioning. But if that doesn't happen, I'm not sure where the government would get the evidence to convict her. Very few people know of her involvement in espionage. Philip and Elizabeth may be dead, fugitives, or back in Russia. If they're caught, they aren't going to give up Paige. Claudia is likely in the wind or back in Moscow. Marilyn is dead. There are some random unnamed operatives seen helping with surveillance, but their knowledge is probably limited to what they need to know. Pastor Tim knows Paige knew her parents were spies, but he doesn't know of her involvement in espionage, which occurred after he left the country. So, Paige has a good chance of walking if she keeps her mouth shut. My vision for the end of the series: Philip or Elizabeth or both of them (depending on who survives) in a drab Moscow apartment in 1991, watching television coverage of the end of the Soviet Union.

    S02.E08: Episode 8

    I wondered about that, too - especially when the diggers left, apparently without protest, after George went out and spoke to them.

    S06.E10: The Winds of Winter

    Yes, it happened. Tommen fired him in episode 6.06.

    S06.E10: The Winds of Winter

    Tommen fired Jaime from the Kingsguard. Wouldn't that release him from his vows and allow him to be the heir to Casterly Rock?

    Thanks! I (obviously) had forgotten the Three-eyed Raven's original identity.

    Two questions: Someone remind me, please: who is BR? Why isn't it winter, except in the North and at the Wall? At the end of ADWD, it's snowing in King's Landing, and a white raven arrives from Oldtown, indicating the maesters there have determined winter has begun. But on the show, it still appears to be sunny and warm in King's Landing, with no sign of winter.
  13. I read the linked articles, and I'm disappointed, but not surprised.

    S01.E10: Clarity

    I would agree, if this was an ordinary malpractice case, where there is a question about Halstead's liability. But this is not that kind of case. The hospital, which would be sued along with Halstead, can't credibly argue Halstead did nothing wrong. Halstead is clearly liable, and as his employer, the hospital is liable for his actions. If the case isn't settled, and the case goes to trial, the smart thing to do would be to admit liability and go to trial on the issue of damages only. This doesn't happen often, but it does happen sometimes in cases like this, where liability is clear. In this type of situation, there is no advantage to be gained by not suspending or firing Halstead. In fact, not firing or suspending him could backfire, by making it appear the hospital supports his actions. As for Halstead, if he has a competent defense lawyer, there will at some point be a "let's talk turkey" kind of meeting to acquaint him with the legal realities of his situation. I know no one has sympathy for lawyers, but I do pity the poor lawyer who gets Halstead as a client. Talk about "the client from hell."

    To me, the most disturbing part of the scene was his total lack of insight into how wrong he was. Incredibly, he still thinks he did nothing wrong. And not suspending or firing Dr. McDouche to protect the hospital's position in the lawsuit makes no sense. It's not as if they have a defense. Realistically, their assessment of the case should be, "Dr. McDouche screwed up, big time, how much is it going to cost us?" If I were in Goodwin's shoes, I wouldn't permit Dr. McDouche to be in the same ZIP code as a patient. But I get it. He's one of the leads.
