I'm so glad you saw the moment at the hangar, too. They even sat on it for seconds, just to remind us what a mistake it was to let it stand. After watching, my sister the ex-FBI agent screamed at me, "There is NO WAY they would dispatch all of the marines! That's the WHOLE POINT of marines -- to protect the Embassy!" But, Lockhart is in so far over his head. Bless him for heading into the trenches, but he's a politician and totally unprepared and out of his depth. I cannot wait for next week.

I have a question for you. Would you feel the same about Neil without any insight from him via the Monk? What we're missing to put the stories on equal footing is exposition. Grace had none at all until opinions on Neil were well formed.

It becomes easier to understand this type of thing after you've been a victim. It's innocent until proven guilty, which also means the victim in't believed until the perp is convicted. Not a pleasant feeling.

This is a fun thread! Sheesh. It must be nice to live in a world where you haven't been touched by depravity or violence. Bless yourselves, because the alternative sucks. The last thing that woman needed was a pedophile to father her children.

I'm sorry to hear that. But now I'm thinking... What if as Mara is immune to the Troubles, Audrey is immune to nothing at all? That might be too deep for Haven, but has she ever been exposed to anything at all? Vaccinated? It would be an interesting cautionary tale.

Don't let your heart hurt for me. Everyone who knows the damage lack of romantic love can do, just step up. Those that come after me can benefit. My sister and I both struggle. I had a long line of years-long relationships; she married her first real boyfriend later in life. I'm currently alone and she's in a rather platonic marriage. I see a lot of me in her and I wish better for her. Unfortunately, she knows nothing else. Me? I know something is out there, and that's why I keep testing the waters. This two year break isn't hurting me. I'm focusing in work and getting to know myself; learning to trust again and know what I need in order to do that.

I greatly respect the love and admiration you have for the women in your life. Truly.

But they haven't tied you up to get you there. And I know you. You love the glee on your ladies' faces so much they probably have a hard time keeping you away!

I'll swill my Pepsi in solidarity. I may be unconventional, but I'm not emotionally damaged. Thank God for small favors! I can imagine what you've seen in the medical field relating to the issue. The problem is, most people into it only use the soft core stuff to drag people in. Nothing sexy about it at all. To watch it on screen is tantamount to a snuff film. Nothing to see here, folks! Carry on. :-)

There are so many problems associated with correlating pleasure to pain they're almost too many to count. So very sad. Even worse that some hack managed to make a bunch of lonely women think it might be sexy.
