OK, let's get this outta the way: If Connor DOESN'T pursue a relationship with Oliver, he's dead to me. Oliver didn't wear his heart on his own sleeve--he put it on Connor's (metaphorically speaking). Connor CAN'T ignore it. Now, on to the main event. I know it makes for good drama, but as someone with a science degree, I have a REALLY difficult time believing that a charred body (or body part) subjected to an extreme environment like a landfill has enough DNA to identify someone. There is one other way so I'd be curious to find out if that's what they used. Anyone wanna venture a guess? I liked Asher in this ep--he took Bonnie down a notch and she deserved it. As for the former tenant of Wes' apartment, I think we're being set up for next season's story arc.

Oh, I could be way off base--you've seen me post some "out there" theories before so this is just more of my vivid imagination run amok. :-)

"I think we all kind of figured Sam had something to do with Lila's murder, but was I the only one who found it a little too convenient how everything fell into place?" Um...no. The events of Sam's murder were set in motion when Rebecca forced herself into the house and made a beeline for Sam's laptop. Supposedly, she was looking for something to download and I don't recall whether she found it. Now Annalise and the Keating 5 were trying to find out if Sam downloaded his travels from his phone onto his laptop, which had been locked away by police on behalf of the prosecution. I'm having a hard time figuring out WHY you'd want to keep GPS data on a hard drive--which makes me wonder if Rebecca UPLOADED the GPS data onto the laptop. I would think a forensic tech would be able distinguish between a smartphone backup and a thumbdrive upload but he testified that it was a smartphone backup. Still, things that make ya go "hmmmmm........ " And speaking of things that make you go "hmmmmm", what's Prom Queen doing in a skirt...a WHITE skirt...with no stockings....in December...in Philadelphia?

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"
