What do you think the State Department does? That's pretty much the purpose of their existence - to handle American foreign affairs with other countries. To negotiate with other countries regarding ANY business the U.S. gov't may have with them & be the public, diplomatic face during any & all crises. That doesn't mean just one person is responsible. Rather, the entire DOS works toward that goal, in tandem with intel & input provided by the military, U.S. intelligence ops, the DOJ, etc. But, the other areas of gov't have classified information that cannot be disclosed to the public. Since the SOS is the head of State Dept, that person is the face of U.S. successes & failures.
Enjoyed the tributes to Sweets throughout. But, the actual case SUCKED. One little paper pusher blackmailed enough people to get several federal agents killed & put out hits on others for...what? I still don't know why Booth was nominated only to pull out the rug from under him. If his nomination had been approved, that little man would have gone undetected. Booth & Brennan would have moved away from D.C. & he could have done whatever he wanted for the forseeable future. He wasn't important, or obscenely wealthy, or anything. What was the motive for killing so many people?
Well, Sweets & Daisy have never said anything to indicate they are Christians. So, what's the big deal? Why do people take what FICTIONAL characters say as a personal affront? I'm a Christian. Brennan was in character. I wouldn't expect her to wax poetic about life after death. That would have been SO fake & insulting to those present. But, the fact that she changed to be more of a humanist & think about love in more esoteric terms than biological or scientific was the ultimate tribute to Sweets.
Great episode! Coulson is Director now. Of course, he's holding things back from his team. Director is a hell of a lot more different than Team Leader. As he explained to Fitz last week, that's what directors do - put everyone on a need to know basis. And, Coulson wasn't upset w/Fury about the need-to-know thing. All gov't agents understand that is the job. He was upset that information about his OWN health & revival was kept from him. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't care if Fury kept his own health status private. Seriously, do we expect to know the medical conditions of everyone we work with? Good golly, I hope not.
Emma's mother is Snow White, an only child. She wouldn't have first cousins unless they were from David's side of the family. But, his twin brother died. Do you mean Snow's mother/Emma's grandmother had sisters? That's a possibility. They would be Emma's great-aunts.
I want to know what game Mr. Gold is playing. He's "happily" married to Belle. But, he's playing both sides in offering to help the Snow Queen, who is manipulating his grandson's family. Is being "good" too boring for the Dark One?
I'm so glad OUAT cast Elizabeth Mitchell in a part. I never saw LOST. But, she's just a fantastic actress. Wonder if she & Giancarlo Esposito will get any scenes together. It would be like a little REVOLUTION reunion! BTW, if the Snow Queen ever loses her magic, Mitchell knows her way around swords, guns & action scenes. She is believably formidable in a fist fight.
From Oz. The one with green skin who was in 3/4 of the episodes last season.
I wish I knew more about medical procedures today because I don't understand half of what Henry refers to. I understood his reference to dialysis in the flashback. But, the other thing went over my head. And, what he was doing to his sick friend at the very end, with the pump - well, no idea there at all.
Anything they can do to keep Judd Hirsch onscreen as much as possible is fine with me.
