    I actually think it would be bizarre if Strahovski missed the cut this year. Her performance is understated but universally praised, the role is expanded from Season 1, and all eyes are on the show after the Best Drama Series win last year. God knows she deserves it over someone like Metz.

    This is such an unbalanced show at the moment. One scene is great, the next awful, the scene after that too on the nose. What remains consistent however is Strahovski’s ridiculously good performance. With the increased visibility of the show she’s definitely getting a nomination.

    Next week’s episode is the last eligible for the Emmys and it is another big one.  Although climactic and unsettling, it could not really be mistaken for a finale, but it is Elisabeth Moss’s tape (and would have been even with the rest of the season eligible), so watch out.  She gets multiple brutal scenes.  If this is a show that makes you cry, you will be in tears.  They went with the premiere as their Emmy submission in pretty much all categories, but they also submitted this one for editing.  Can it get nominated?  It might be tough coming out so late in voting.  Jeremy Podeswa of course did not submit this because he submitted the Game of Thrones finale and the category only allowed him to submit one.  This is the third episode in a row without flashbacks.

    So you’ve seen eps 11-13 then?

    No, just a prediction.  It is a June-heavy episode without flashbacks adding some levity or asides to Canada cutting into her screen time.

    Does this show wants me to start hating on men? If that’s the case they’re doing helluva job!

    That Isaac kid was just ugh. I wanted to stab him repeatedly and then rub some salt into his wounds. And is it me or Fred is cartoonish villain? He’s so one note. He’s just evil and that’s it. He reminds me about Bryce from 13RW.

    The show needs to remember that just because it’s about women, it doesn’t mean that the male characters should be neglected. Fred, Luke and even Nick aren’t written particularly well, and although the focus quite rightly isn’t on them, that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be pointed out.

    I mean…read the book and it’s not like the show is unrepresentative in that.

    TV is such a different medium – this isn’t something that translates well in a multi-season show.

    Episode 9 was a great one.  Lots of powerful moments.  Chehkov’s stack of letters finally gets paid off.   Basically everything that went down in Canada was wickedly satisfying.   Serena getting that picture guide is one of my favorite things ever.
