Kurt's hair was slicked back in a new style this hour. That had to mean he was going badass. LOL Seriously, the number of shirtless scenes they manage to squeeze in with Nick boggles, doesn't it?? Hehe

I hate to think of financial gain through terrorism, but you're right. When I was tweeting with my friend before my review, I decided it was either Nick or Aaron alive and busily betraying Charlie. It has to be one of them or it won't be as much of an impact. I get the feeling Syd may be someone Charlie knew growing up or something. Doesn't he seem like a father figure? Maybe why she got into the CIA?

Modwild

Yeah, there HAS to be some reason Mark Tallman stuck around all these weeks, actively tweeting with the cast and crew. He was probably promised season 2 as Aaron who didn't easily die. I'm wondering if TKG had something big planned with him years in the making. The whole thing with Fatah and Charlie both aiming at Aaron has always seemed very, very off. We're about to find out as much as we're going to. I really hope if it doesn't get picked up the incredibly engaged writing team tosses us a bone about what their plans would have been. I really want to know!!

I only saw half the episode. LOL I caught enough while out to see Catherine in the strange sauna thingy, drop the liquids on the bible, see Mary rebuff Francis again (When WILL he say he saw her touching Conde without issue? Did he?)... I'm almost up to watching it on my incredibly backed up DVR. ;-)

I'm not talking about spoilers. I'm speculating, but I'm doing so with authority. Henry went mad. There was no reason for Henry to be perfectly fine one moment (albeit an arrogant ass) and to then be utterly mad the next. This makes sense of it. I have no "in" at the CW that gives me any inside information. Far, far from it. I'm so far out of the loop I can't even see a loop. I do, however, have fairly good deductive reasoning skills and all of my reviews are speculative. Lots of practice makes me rather confident. :-)

Modwild

No. Henry was poisoned. Think about it. For what other reason did HE go mad? It happened in the same fashion as did Catherine's. We have a new mystery at foot for our little group of super sleuths to solve and more political intrigue to bring back sexy King Henry, even if only in flashbacks.

Modwild

It doesn't make sense for anyone we know to have done it. They were all there and utterly freaked out as Henry descended into madness. The key is who benefitted from that. Someone who wanted Mary and Francis to ascend to the throne? Mary de Guise? Conde's
brother in the hope they'd be easier to topple than Henry? Elizabeth? I wouldn't be looking for jealous lovers.

You can't come to expect anything from a woman who is pregnant. All bets are off with hormones. That's not a trope, it's science.

Modwild

I'm with you, Michael. The problem here is that they were both drunk. I can understand why Tank got upset and defensive at the accusation. If he had not been impaired and she was, the story may be different. She willingly drank like a fish, as did he. They were both in the same place. That he remembers doesn't make him guilty. She shouldn't put herself into that situation and I say that with the knowledge I put myself into that situation continuously in college and never once was unlucky enough to found myself with a guy who did something I didn't want, even if I might have said otherwise. How? I have no idea. I hope they treat the situation fairly from both sides, as that's the real message that needs to be sent at this time. Drinking too much hurts all sides, not just the female.

Modwild

Good answer, Amy. That was a pretty harsh reply you received. I'm sorry.
