The elephant was that nobody ever recognizes Oliver despite the fact he's merely wearing a hoodie. :-)

I think Mo likes Lucas. Lucas went over and screwed her while he was drunk and that must have gone badly. He felt wrong about it and was afraid to bring it up, that's why Charlie told him to do despite feeling like an ass because Mo would understand. Maybe Mo's not herself because she's back to feeling awkward around him. He never did apologize that we know of. It would be weird at work again.

As I said below, when I was tweeting with my friend before writing the review, I decided either Nick or Aaron is alive (heck, maybe both) and busily betraying Charlie. We have seen no sign of Aaron, so that would be easier to swallow. The look on Nick's face as the bomb dropped didn't look smug, as if he just pulled over a major coup to keep someone alive he was paid to, so to make that the case will feel very weird. The better twist overall, outside of Charlie, would be for Aaron to be alive and betraying her and mom, a la Nicholas Brody on Homeland because, hello, his mom is the President and who better to be pulling nasty strings against America than him? That would really toss things into Shondaland territory. Whackadoodle crazy, ya know?

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?

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.
