The season is only 14 episodes instead of the customary 20+ and it was split--the previous episode was the MID-season finale. According to ABC, it's 3 episodes UNTIL the season finale, so that makes 4 episodes left. Then comes the AGONY of waiting 6 months for its return in the Fall.

I think it was "Choose", as in "Choose your own path", a veiled reference to "choosing" to be heterosexual.

" 'Lost' wasn't explained for 7 years, and it's fans didn't wimp out" In an odd way, maybe that's the problem. "Lost"' had a unique premise when it aired and it was that unique nature that kept people hooked. This is almost a "me too" kinda show and I don't think folks WANT to wait 7 years for answers--been there, done that. Our culture and reliance on technology has changed since too--no more "Lost" parties on Wednesday nights now that people are watching shows when THEIR schedule allows via OnDemand and Hulu. If viewers are too busy to keep "broadcast schedules", perhaps they'd prefer to know what shows are worth their time and they're not gonna hang around long to make that determination; if they do manage to stick around, they'll run when things get boring because let's face it--there are now more options out there for new programming (Netflix, Roku, Amazon Prime).

That may have been the impression UPSTAIRS when Robert called Miss Bunting's bluff, but downstairs, things seemed different--all Mrs. Patmore did was bitch that she had twice the work because Daisy's studies were distracting her from her duties.

OMG...did you catch her nasty digs about Carson's insensitivity? We didn't see any conversation between Carson and Mrs. Patmore after that--wonder if we'll see something in a future episode. Carson really can be such a pompous windbag and Mrs. Patmore has just the right pin to stick in him.

Considering that Robert asked her not to return, that won't be a problem. Question is, we saw her tutoring Daisy once so will she keep doing that, or will Daisy have to go to her?

"...what is Thomas up (to)?" Word is, he's trying to "cure his homosexuality" by taking some drug. Some say it's cocaine, others say it's something called apomorphine. Either way, the drug was a follow-up to ECT and was what passed for "conversion therapy" back then. "Bye-bye baby) Bunting...." Or is that "bye bye Bunting baby"

NCIS: LA is not just a local office of NCIS. Remember that they're the Office of Special Projects, which means there's more latitude in the kinds of cases they handle. Besides, part of the dialog last night was an admonition against a large military assault....but a small infiltration by say....2 people, one of whom is an ex-Nave SEAL....would probably fare better.

Me too....Walter finally grew a pair. :-)

Paige as Cyrano was kinda.....creepy and disturbing, but kudos to Walter for "improvising" to let Happy slip out unnoticed. I'm also a little disturbed that Toby's advice could steer Paige in Walter's direction--we all know Drew doesn't get Ralph. However, Walter has zero grasp on the concept of romance and love (and seems rather proud of that fact), and this is someone with whom she's gonna contemplate a relationship? No no...Paige would do better "not shitting where she eats" and seeking romance elsewhere. As for the case they worked this week, the action sequences were great, if a bit over-the-top. Anyone else smile just a little when Walter diverted "Fatima's" blade onto a live electrical circuit?
