The difference with Saul making the decision to kill Carrie is that he would know the press wouldn't make a big deal out of it. Carrie should have thought about what kind of a big deal it would be to kill the ex-CIA director. Based on the previews, I think Quinn knew which vehicle to follow, even if they cut the scene there.

I thought about this after the fact and Tweeted it: The lesson is it's better to ride in a boat across the ocean than a tiger than to mess with terrorists.

Yep -- the affair will impact their lives in ways more interesting than sex with a stranger. What's coming is so interesting. I've seen the next two episodes and I can't wait for you guys to, as well.

Things really take a turn in the next two episodes. This was, definitely, the point of no return. It's a surprising place it's going.

I agree that Jeffries is playing them. He's a good detective. He's trying to get them to tell the truth and his way of doing that is really intriguing. Forcing their stories and learning how they lie through their perspectives is a really good tactic. They're getting worn down.

So what did you think? Did you enjoy the historical references and the return of known baddies? I think in the UK it's almost imperative to maintain the sense of this series dating back 50 years. Villains returning is no different than The Doctor continuing to reboot. Ah well. Here's hoping for a walloping good finale!

I don't think that's a fair assessment. Matt and Daisy would be fine and dandy if they weren't having an affair that makes no sense to most of us as viewers. Apparently you see things differently, but their affair has bugged me from the start, as well. It was made even worse tonight because we had to listen to Daisy's horrible reasons for wanting to marry her fiance. She's a strong accomplished woman and yet she wielded a list that made it sound like she's normally home baking pies, as if she needs a man with ambition to provide for her. That was a terrible development to an already difficult to understand situation. The actors playing Matt and Daisy have shown no chemistry at all, not natural or even within their characters. What Matt said at her door was the closest they have come other than coworkers who sleep together and talk about nothing else. Both actors deserve better written stories for their characters.

I'm glad I could help. I try my best to get the best quotes and to make sure they're correct, even if I have to watch 10 times to get it all! :-)

I did! I did! I tried to see it from their perspective all along. I'm busy patting myself on the back and happy someone else decided to join me in this line of thinking! Go Winter! Tis the season.... ;-)

It's also likely that it will go out of style or her taste in love will change. I think people plan the wedding with the idea of their love in mind. Sleek, romantic, modern... as a woman, I can say without hesitation the only dress I would ever wear after a day like that would be one that was a family heirloom. If it was a purchase, selling it right quick makes the best sense if she selling it is the way to go. Brides like the latest styles at their disposal. How is she doing, by the way? Is she going through the stages of grief? Does she realize how close she came to a lifetime of unhappiness? I hope she's coming through the other end well.
