AGREE! See the movie ASAP because the details revealed in the most recent episodes will make more sense the sooner you piece it together with the movie.

OMG - it all becomes clear when you see THE WINTER SOLDIER that what we've been watching is just one small piece of a huge puzzle. Now it all fits - the Clairvoyant, the drug given to Coulson & Sky, Mike Peterson. About the only thing we have left to discover is WHO Sky is (and if it can be used to their benefit ASAP). I'm just glad that we can pretty sure that our team stands a good chance of being part of the good guys. Whenever people are prevented from learning the whole truth, that's a sure bet those people are part of the "good" team...as Nick Fury learned too late.

Disagree - because then it would be pronounced like an "S" as in Ciaran Hinds, the actor. If it needs to be a hard "K" sound before an "i", it should be "K." Another name with a hard K is Kiera (as in Knightley)

That's the impression I got. That it was the drugs making him loopy.

YES! "The Body" was amazing. The lack of music, Buffy's fading in & out of focus as her mind wanders...just heartbreaking. I'm not bothered by the lack of info @ the correspondent's luncheon. Think about it - the correspondents were all THERE, at the luncheon. They weren't at the courthouse to cover anything so there was a delay. Alicia only got the info so quickly because Kalinda & Diane were at the same place. Even if the news feeds hear police radio chatter, it does take some time to drive to the place of conflict, get intel on what is happening (& police aren't chatty in the middle of a shootout), & then cobble some semblance of a story together.

The only reason I like the half-sister plot point is to allow more flashbacks of how that worked. How was young Cora able to give birth to a green baby girl *before* Regina without Rumple's knowledge? We all know he introduced her to magic, and was with her when she became engaged to Prince Henry. I find it hard to believe Rumple would have stood idly by while she had a relationship & a baby w/someone else, considering he was in love with her. And, I don't think he would have let her abandon their baby in Oz all by itself. More Rose McGowan, please!

I think that's a wonderful idea - Mrs. Patmore & Daisy's FIL! There was a dearth of romance downstairs this season. Next season, I hope thinks look up for Mr. Moseley, Baxter, Daisy, Jimmy & the Bateses. Those two need a baby IMO. It would bring in another aspect of service that hasn't been shown - how servants raised families while waiting round-the-clock on someone else's family.

We'll I guess I'm in the minority. I liked this season of DA. I like how Fellowes will jump forward in time & cut out the boring, extraneous parts to get to the meat of the stories, like completely skipping over the "Edith & Rosamund road trip to Switzerland." I don't mind that we don't see the babies because I prefer watching Isobel & the Dowager Countess to Sybbie & George. LOVED the scenes at Grantham House & watching the Crawleys in the social whirl of London. And, yes, I like Rose. Without her, the Crawleys would still be talking pigs back in Yorkshire. Thank God she got them out of their rut (and Tom away from the snobby schoolteacher), and forced Lord Grantham into his Lord's uniform. Downstairs, there weren't a lot of changes in staff. But, it's been nice to see Daisy grow from a scared scullery maid into an experienced cook in her own right. Watching Mrs. Patmore mentor her is touching. Just seeing all the relationships deepen has been fulfilling. And, frankly, I don't care if Mr. Bates did push that rapist to his death. He had it coming.

You tell her, Rob. The U.S. doesn't have historic locations among which to shoot?!?! Er, Carissa, have you ever travelled anywhere in the U.S.? We have an entire CONTINENT of estates that could easily double as Martha Levinson's New York mansion, Newport "cottage," Harold's yacht digs, & many, many more.

I had forgotten about Michael's wife! Thank you for reminding me. So has Edith apparently because if Michael was arrested in Germany before he had a chance to get a divorce (his entire reason for going there), then Edith is being a little presumptuous about inheriting anything from his will IMO. Power of attorney as editor is one thing. Expecting money when you are not a legal spouse is quite another.
