Grey's Anatomy Review: What's the Point?

I am hoping she just leaves to work for him and nothing more. I don't see her making an impulsive emotional decision about him, but career-wise, she has already decided to leave gsmh, so this would be a natural fit.

Amber and Ryan made love at the hospital. It was a subtle cutaway. I hope she was gentle! !

Revenge Review: Alliances

Em's fortune came from Nolan bc her father was the first investor, so his share passed to her via Nolan.
His arrest didn't finalize/convict, so no assets lost, plus emily ' s fortune came from the company, not the person, so they were out of the scope of confiscation. :)

Game of Thrones Review: It's Only Wine

I am trying to figure this out but don't want to spoil it for people. Is there any way you can refresh my memory without spoiling it for others?
I need to re-read the books again but I was pretty confused by the end.

Chris, did you go back and see that part?

Parenthood Review: Sydney Has a Point

As a parent of a child on the spectrum like Max, I need to provide some context to Max..
He hasn't been being told to "express yourself" at all times. He lacks a *neurological foundation* for that type of situation, considering context of a thought or feeling and its effect on others.
Max wasn't diagnosed until age 9 - far later than the typical age of 3 - which means that the therapies that help some autistic kids "rewire" their brains prior to age 5 didn't happen. All spectrum kids have varying degrees of symptoms and issues, but what they DO all have in common is that certain things (like the ability to understand that your words and behaviors affect others - again, neurological) need to be expressly taught, like learning how to write code or do accounting or surgery. Many do learn those skills and adapt well; others have a tougher time. However, Kristina and Adam are sheltering him. He cannot learn those skills without the opportunity to practice them. But it is HARD. REALLY, REALLY HARD. doing everything you are supposed to do is exhaustive, and that's still assuming that you have any idea where to start. So, yes, they need to work on him for those skills, but cut them all a little slack. Max is not the way he is because his parents don't tell him no or he is told to "express himself". As a side note, this is the only place I have seen people whine about episodes focusing on Max. Everything else I have ever seen comments on how incredibly accurate and compelling his portrayal is (I started watching before my son was born, and thought he was so good that I incorrectly assumed that the actor must be Aspie). Wasn't all about him, lots went on. He is a part of the family after all.

That's what I figured it would be too, so that's why the blue light coming from where they were shocked me so much. It was DEFINITELY a deliberate play by the director. This is the poem about Corcosa, and the literary references make it appear to be on another planet, or possibly in another universe: Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.
Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.
Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.
Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.
—"Cassilda's Song" in The King in Yellow Act 1, Scene 2 Which is what makes the universe part so "WOW" to me. Like he ALMOST got sucked in there.
