    Archie Panjabi is submitted in supporting, sadly her chances to score a nomination are over. I personally would vote for her over PWB, unless PWB delivers in the last episode.

    Outrageous! A corpse lying down in a bale of hay does not equal an acting performance! Only three episodes should count for Panjabi, making her eligible and competitive in guest actress. This is totally agaisnt what the spirit of the <50% rule is supposed to mean.

    The corpse does not count as an appearance because it was not Archie Panjabi.  This is just HBO spreading out its submissions across categories.

    Wow, I thought I would come here to read how bad this episode was. But to my surprise you guys love it. I guess, I’m watching a different show….

    I agree with you. Sloppy plotting and misguided character development and work. This is the first episode in which I disliked Wever. PWB was absolutely fine, but not nomination worthy. Perhaps next week will be her best episode. I never regret watching the show and the episodes always fly by, but I’m glad it’s wrapping up next week. This probably could’ve been six episodes, with this episode and the prior one condensed and combined.

    A shame about Panjabi’s category placement. I suspect HBO didn’t want to jeopardize a Guest nomination for PWB by putting a second (and much better) choice in the same category. Panjabi’s chances shrink now as a result, but I’m most certainly not ruling her out yet. If the Academy really goes for the series, a surprise nomination is not outside the realm of possibility, in my opinion.

    It’s sad how much I’ve grown to dislike this show more and more as each episode passes. I was onboard (no pun intended) after the first two episodes, but it’s steadily gone downhill since. It isn’t bad, it’s just so forgettable.

    The writing is super sloppy. This episode alone Ruby and Billy were going to tell the police, then they weren’t, then they were and then they weren’t lol. The decision at the end to catch the train felt like a way to keep the plot moving and to add another twist. It especially didn’t make much sense after the big heart to heart they had in the woods.

    Wever is really the only reason why I’m still watching, plus the fact that the episodes fly by and I’m stuck in quarantine lol. Gleeson is good, but nothing to write home about and PWB still does nothing. The quiet karaoke was very cringe.

    Yeah, the writing/plotting of this show is really very bad. Wever does a great job in it, but I wouldn’t nominate her because of the quality of the show. I would love to see Kristen Bell, Jane Levy, and Awkwafina get votes over her. The wishy-washy nature of both characters in this week’s episode was just a whole lot of no. The PWB subplot was a bigger pile of no. If this had been a standalone movie, it could have been more successful (without the Spike Fiona subplot). As a series, it feels way too stretched thin.

    Catching up on this recently. I love it. A great premise, I would follow Merritt Wever to the end of the world, but even still she’s ace. She’s not beating Catherine O’Hara for me, but she’s so worthy of a nod, as does the series more broadly.

    HBO specifically calls this a “season finale.”

    Yes, that is why I was confused about why they labelled it as limited series finale.

    OK it’s done. 10 years ago, this would have been a mid-budgeted RomCom with Rachel McAdams and Owen Wilson. It would have worked better as a movie instead of a series. As exciting as Archie Panjabi was, her subplot (especially that twist) was unnecessary, PWB’s subplot was even less necessary. I wanted to like it more and the performances were fine, but the writing and plotting were just not good. Merritt Wever was excellent, but the show was such a miss for me, I’d rather see others nominated over her.

    I guess that was some type of ending….

    Merritt was great in Finale. Specially last scene

    Waller-Bridge is not nomination-worthy here. Panjabi was much better. I understand HBO not wanting to steal votes away from PWB, but Archie would just be so much more deserved.

    And can we talk about how just TERRIBLE PWB’s American accent is? I mean really, I almost would’ve rather she just kept it British and not addressed it because hearing her with that painfully obvious fake accent is excruciating.
