7.07 – your wish…

…is my command. πŸ™‚ Here you go, MamaYorkie, you wished for a post for the 150th episode. You’re welcome. πŸ™‚

So, what do you think will happen? How is Catherine involved, what was MamaMcG up to all this time? Will Catherine stay?

And most importantly, will Lynn have a speaking role in 7.07? πŸ˜‰

Credit for the pictures goes with a huge thank you to Daniel Dae Kim and Christine Lahti!

  1. I *want* Catherine to stay, but I don’t think it will happen. I’d like for them to at least clear the air enough to understand what is up and leave the door open to reconciling in the future if the timing ever works. So I can imagine that it will.

    I’m sure Lynn will technically speak, but I suspect it won’t be much. Like “bye Steve” or whatever.

    Is Scott not this episode? I wouldn’t be disappointed, but it seems odd for him to miss this one.

  2. Thank you for the new pictures! I hope Lynn has a speaking part and she is wirh Steve ! From what I have read Catherine is only back because of the plot of the show. Both Her and Doris are CIA so they know about wo fat’s father. I just hope Doris has anwsers for Steve. As for Catherine it is too late for any thing with Steve as for I am concern, hopefully this is the last time we see her! I watch because of the bromance between Steve and Danny!

    • Good luck with that, but you’re very off-base. Only Doris’ arc is being wrapped up, not Catherine’s. That’s been made very clear already. It’s not too late for Steve/Cath. And Steve/Lynn are the longest booty call/FWB ever. What’s so great about him using her as a human mattress and treating her like crap? LOL

    • Good luck with that, but you’re way off-base IMO. lol Doris’ arc is being wrapped up, but nothing has implied Catherine’s is. That’s a HUGE leap and pretty presumptuous. It’s not too late for Steve/Cath. Steve and Lynn are the longest booty call/rebound/FWB I’ve ever seen. What’s so great about him using her as a human mattress? LMAO That’s a dysfunctional arrangement (because, really calling it a relationship is not only disingenuous but quite generous lol). It’s toxic, unhealthy and completely degrading to women.

      We see it differently but that’s OK. I think Cath’s Endgame because of the reasons I gave. You like the McDanno bromance, but I only like Scott Caan. I think the McDanno relationship has been ruined beyond repair and should be tossed in the trash. It’s not funny; its sad. Who needs a friend who constantly looks for your greatest wound and pours the whole salt shaker on it?

      But this is only a show so it bothers me that some people forget that these are just actors reading lines the way the writers intend and the director instructs. Those who claim to be able to interpret body language need to produce their credentials. Oh, I forgot. They don’t have any. They have insulted one of the most professional and generous actors I have ever seen. As for Steve and Danny, well, that’s a bromance which I think is definitely a loose end being tied up. Off to Jersey, Danny- take the kids and Rachel with you because to some “true fans, she hasn’t done anything wrong as wrong as Cath going on an Op that Steve admits he understands.

      Lynn will be gone soon. She is sad and has no respect for herself if she is willing to take whatever crumbs Steve sweeps from the table. I hope she gives him a second black eye when she realizes he still is in love with Cath.

      • Dear MamaYorkie, best comment ever. And so true on every level. Well, maybe not about Lynn. They are both adults and I think they are on the same page. She knows he doesn’t love her, and he knows she is just there for the sex. So… all is good. πŸ˜‰

        “They have insulted one of the most professional and generous actors I have ever seen.” SAD, and they don’t even realize what they have said. That is truly sad. I could use other words for what they (or was it just one person?) said about that picture, but they are not worth my time.

  3. I think we’ll get some answers about why Doris left her family and her relationship with WoFat’s dad. I think Steve & Cath will mostly be in covert op mode with a little sexual tension thrown in. I want Cath to stay. They’ll prob have her leave again, but this time I think (hope) they’ll come to some kind of understanding about why she has to leave. I do think she’ll be back because I think there is more to Catherine’s storyline and I think McRoll are endgame. Sounds like Lynn has a very small part in this ep. I don’t know if she’ll actually get to speak this time. If Lynn does say anything, it will probably be something like “If you leave with her I won’t be here when you back.” Seems like Lynn will be there just so Cath can see her with Steve as PL tries his hand at a silly wannabe soapy triangle. Hopefully, Lynn never comes back but I’m sure she will since she’s a bump-in-the-McRoll road plot device. Just my thoughts. 😊

    • CocoPuffy:

      Well yes, you have said pretty much what I have been thinking. We already know that this won’t be the episode where Steve and Cath reunite because the EP has already said so. We weren’t expecting it. He did NOT say the relationship was over, only that it would not happen in 707. He has already tipped his hand that McRoll is endgame. When S5 looked like the end, he brought her back. Even bringing her back for 601-603 would have been unnecessary if he wanted to kill the pairing. And then he left the door open for her return. How many “true fans” said we were delusional to believe she was coming back? When he thought S6 might be the end, he admitted Cath was in the draft for 625 but he took her out when the show was renewed, and said he planned to bring her back another way. Look at what he does. It is even more important and telling than what he says, especially when the comments are “interpreted” for him by an interviewer or by “true fans” of the show. All I consider is what I see him actually do and what I read in quotes. This is the one character who has the most buzz and he knows it. He could have killed her in Afghanistan or just left her there in 421. But he didn’t. Why? Its because he likes McRoll and enjoys poking a little fun at those segments of the fandom that go ballistic whenever her name is mentioned. Any information we get about Cath after 707 will be tightly controlled because this is the one relationship that stirs up the most sh-t. Notice, nobody ever asks about Rachel. Cath will return.

      As for tying up loose ends, how simplistic some “true fans” are. “Ends” don’t necessarily only mean Doris and Wo Fat. It could also mean Joe White, John McGarrett’s role in all this (I think he knew Doris was alive) or any number of things. It could also mean the end of Cath’s role in the CIA operation, but not the end of her character. I also think it ends Lynn since the actress blew in and out of town in one day which means one small scene which I think has her see Steve follow the woman he planned to marry on a dangerous op. I hope Lynn finally has enough self esteem to walk away from someone whose head isn’t into the game but she’s hopeless. We’ll see her in McG’s bedroom for a booty call when he leaves to help Cath. That’s the sum total of that relationship. Sex with no commitment- perfectly OK for consenting adults as long as everybody’s on the same page.

      Doesn’t anyone think it’s strange that Ellie was demoted to buddy during S5 when he thought the show was in trouble? That’s likely when he decided to bring Cath home.

      I am so glad that Christine Lahti is back and I hope Doris doesn’t die but unless she has a really good story to explain her actions, it may be the writers easy way out, especially if they can’t think of any other way out of the mess.

      Finally. my good laugh for today was the possibility of Claire Forlani’s character being a possible new love interest for McGarrett. PL didn’t say it- the interviewer somehow got that idea from the character “understanding” him better. She could have had a liver transplant for all we know or a mother who faked her own death or a screw up sister who somehow was allowed to adopt a baby or a former partner who was passive aggressive or tattoos on her upper arms. Or something just as simple as sharing and understanding a near death experience and its impact on your life. We just don’t know yet but the ABC’s desperation for a new possible LI not named Cath are the very same shippers who were pushing for Lynn. They jumped that “ship”faster than they did for Ellie.

      Is Danny really not in 707? It’s such a landmark episode that I am shocked if it’s true. It speaks volumes for the necessity of the character at all and its impact on the show, as well as the attitude of all concerned. Perhaps we’ll get a scene of him talking into a dead telephone pretending its Steve on the other end. That should satisfy the Danny fans.

      • I agree with so much about your comment. I’ve wondered if in fact John knew about Doris, and that’s what he apologized to steve for. I wish SHOW was that good, to set that seed so many years ago.. we shall see.

        Aso for the soothsayer that believe they can interpret not only Alex’Smith every nuance, but Peter’s words (and his non words πŸ˜…) all I have to do is Recall that they said she was done, finished, finito after 4.21. Never to return. Until 5.25 when they raged for a bit, and then said she would be gone for good. Even after 6.03, which was incredibly clear that the storyline would continue, they cheered and gloat ed that she was gone, would never ever ever appear in any other H50 episode. Yet here we areally, 7.07… catherine is back again, ans STILL, these fools are saying she’s never coming back. Seems to me like their fortune telling skills are seriously lacking.

        Or, could the year be purposely stirring the pot? I mean, such positive people who decry fandom drama wouldn’t do that would they? Of course they would. They should be careful, their butthurt is showing.

        Not one of us who likes Cath believed that this episode would be the reunion, that would make no sense. They need to talk, and get things out. Because this show is light on details, who knows how much we will get, but I am beyond thrilled to see Michelle Borth back on set. I very much enjoy her character.

        Lynn… maybe she will get to utter a few lines, or maybe she will just throw both of her shoes this time. Whatever it is, it’s going to be brief.

  4. Really think that Catherine is for Steve. But it is really saying that P.L. is going to let her break up for good with Steve. Maybe to move on. As sorry to say but true. I am one of the few people that love McCatherine as I now call them together. But still breaking them up will be sad to see. As really hate it that Michelle B got a lot of hatred from fans. As really she did not deserve that IMHO!

  5. Ah, the speculation must be wild on the other boards. I have seen the photos of Doris and Catherine but none of Lynn. It sure appears that Cath will be doing something with the team since they were all in black. And Daddy Fat will be present, very interesting.

    I figure Cath won’t be able to stick around, she will likely have to finish the mission by leaving. If they write it that she chooses to go even if the mission is over then I believe PL is getting rid of her. I hate that idea but have no say so I guess I will have to adapt…..ugh. Wish they would let you and Cokie write her back in but those writers generate no trust in me as to smart planning.

    On a tiny side note; checking IMDb on my phone….it used to list the cast with Alex and then Scott. Now Scott is listed fourth after Alex, Daniel and Grace. I wonder who decided that?

  6. I have no flipping clue what goes on in PL’s head . The one thing I feel like I DO know is that he LOVES mind games and plays them well. I want Steve & Cath to rebuild their relationship and that has to start by realizing they both care about each other. Hopefully this ep will start that ball rolling. Very glad that Lynn’s role appears to be small enough to be filmed in a day or less. I generally don’t notice Danny one way or the other but it is interesting he doesn’t seem to be included in a milestone ep. His choice I suppose.

  8. ya’ll pretty much covered what i have been thinking. Before I forget, I am happy to see Daddyfat; i don’t know why i had not thought about his part in 150 with Doris’s return. Otherwise I have a few maybe slightly coherent thoughts on all the Mcdrama.
    Anyway, all PL’s post made clear was that 150 would not be a reunion ep for Steve and Cath. He did mention how much damage had been done in their relationship that he could intend to mean they can never be together in the future either. But, most definitely, he is always mysterious in his posts. I don’t see him shutting down the MCRoll relationship so far ahead of her reappearance when he opened the door for reconciliation with Steve learning she was actually off on a mission that Steve even said he understood. Steve showed in that ep last year how important she is to him. Now, her connection to Doris could be a nail in the coffin, but that is his decision to make. If they were a real couple not affected bty acting/writing constraints, then their history would be way too important to throw away. A blonde, Steve has known for a year would not get in their way. Unfortunately, we have sometimes clueless writers as well as the whole “what actors can we/ do we want to get for continuous episodes. For the person who tweeted about Lynn having never left McG (contrasting with Doris and Cath), Lynn was not important enough to be around for Steve’s brush with death – Pua was there for goodness sake! As a side, I would have found a lasting relationship between Steve and Ellie to be much more believable. I really liked her and found her to be much more on Steve’s level. I liked the actress and thought she and Steve had great screen chemistry.
    150 needs to be focused on Steve and Doris. I fear if too much time is spent dealing with Steve and Catherine (as much as i would like for them to resolve things) there will be no time to do the mother/son story justice. Therefore, I don’t think they can deal with everything that needs to be dealt with between the two of them without Cath coming up in the future.
    As far as Alex’s body language goes, how do we know what was going on in the split second a pic is snapped? Looks like they were dressed for what would be some intense scenes. Maybe he actually was focused on his work. As much as we all love his grins, he doesn’t have to give those all the time. Based on the amount of work he put into 100, he is probably exhausted and ready to get on with the real shooting.
    Oh my goodness, all this drama and we haven’t even seen Steve get out of the hospital!

  9. I love y’all.
    I think it’s funny how certain people are taking PL’s quote and saying he said McRoll’s relationship was damaged. I haven’t seen any quote where he said that. This is the quote I saw:

    “People are interpreting it like her coming back into the relationship and starting all over again, but I just don’t think that can happen after all that these two have gone through,” executive producer Peter Lenkov told Entertainment Weekly. “Her relation to the story is more plot driven than reigniting that relationship.”
    PL said he wanted to brin Cath back in a different way. In 525 she came back for him. This time, obviously, it going to be plot driven and tied to Doris. They have been through a lot and I don’t think anyone of thought they’d get back together in this episode.
    The same people that are saying this is Cath’s last episode have sung that song before. Like 4 times before. One would think they’d stop proclaiming their “truths” since they’ve been wrong so many times. I also love how certain people are already shipping McG with Alicia since the most recent comment from PL saying that as a criminal profiler she understands more than any other woman he’s known. This doesn’t sound romantic to me. It’s sounds clinical – like maybe she’s able to get him to open up, talk about his demons, make him realize what he wants and finally have him fight for it.
    Thanks for letting me ramble. Sorry. LOL

              • GNP- I remember that incident. It was so stupid and easy to avoid. There was no need to film in that cemetery at all. Any park or private Estate with a good size lawn could have been sprinkled with phony grave markers. Tight shots of the actors would have made it impossible to see where they were filming and stock footage of the actual cemetery could have been used for the wide shots. Whomever chose that location and whatever agency allowed its rental made a major error. It was disrespectful to a dwindling group of WWII veterans who may not have survived to honor their fellow soldier the following year. Consider how we would feel if we went to visit our loved ones and found a food truck parked there and heavy equipment on the graves and were told to be quiet. The apology offered was marred by adding an explanation. A simple “we are sorry for our thoughtless and inconsiderate actions on that day” would have been preferable. Having said that, I don’t believe any of what happened was intentional. It was just plain stupid. This show has never had anyone responsible for saying “Don’t do that”. That’s how we got liver.

      I think you are correct. Alicia is a profiler-a psychologist. These are the episodes when Steve undergoes soul searching regarding his life and the choices he has made. Who better to talk to than a relative stranger who will listen but not judge? He needs therapy for his PTSD and Alicia may be able to help him. This looks like a “desperation” ship to me. Cath’s return scares the hell out of these “true fans” because they are really afraid she’s endgame, too.

      It’s confirmed that SC had a scheduling conflict and could not make 707. He missed 704 and now 707 so …………….not his primary job? At that rate he could miss half the season. I can hardly wait to see how they manage to write around a character who is NOT there but still have to pretend IS there. Jedi mind trick, anyone?

The episodes he isn’t in work fine by me, and the ones that he is in but totally separate from the rest of the story just don’t flow properly. Danny/SC fans are obviously sad about it, but they need to take that up with the actor, not the show.

            • Sam: That’s just it. I do feel sorry for the McDanno fans because they believe in their ship and nothing has ever gone their way. I blame the writers for dangling a plastic carrot in front of them for the last six years. They don’t feel sorry for the McRolls, I know, but that doesn’t bother me in the least. The ABC’s on the other hand, are just plain ugly.

              Nobody in this fandom ever addresses the elephant in the room about SC’s absences. It’s wonderful to want to spend as much time as possible with your family but Hawaii is not the Arctic. They have beaches and restaurants, and cultural institutions too. Unless the real reason is that you just don’t want to be there at all. Call it the way it is. Some fans need a reality check.

              • Mama, I do think you hit on a very good point. I admire the desire to spend time with your family but when it is your job, you should be where they pay you. From the beginning SC gave an interview of how he wasn’t sure about taking a job in television, his father had advised against it. He has never hidden the fact that he prefers LA and somewhere….I think IMDb, a person stated that his girlfriend hates Hawaii. Not sure why but then again, she used to work for the show, was she fired? As you said, Hawaii is not on the other side of the earth. Perhaps the real reason is that he really doesn’t want to be there. And that is too bad.

                • Bluntly, unlike Alex, Scott has inheritance money. He also has inherited and grown up with friends and contacts in the business, and in other artistic endeavors, who he can count on. His name grants him entree others cannot leverage. He hasn’t needed to work to support his children, as Alex has needed to do since he was 20 years old.

                  There’s nothing wrong with that. Scott is lucky that he’s a legacy and he even has talent…not my cup of tea as an actor, but he’s done play-writing and photography too, and gotten nice reviews. He likes to dabble, he’s a dabbler, and his life circumstances allow him to be. So he dabbles in 5-0, too. It does not hurt Show, IMO.

                  But I do have empathy for his fans…not confident he does, tho.

                  • I think anyone who is upset that McDanno as a romance hasn’t happened is a bit delusional about what show they are watching on what network. I mean I get why see the potential, but it would be out of character for a CBS crime drama.

                    I don’t think SC has empathy for his fans. I’m sure all of the main cast is getting artistically a little bored. But SC seems to be the only one who doesn’t realize that they don’t sound reasonable when complaining about being paid scads of money to be a working actor in Hawaii. The other three seem to have some idea about how “regular” people live. Partly, I think because they grew up that way. SC grew up in a bubble. I’m not sure he realizes the degree to which his family name opens up doors for him.

                    I kind of wonder if one reason SC doesn’t love Hawaii is that he didn’t get the instant special treatment he did in LA. Like my sister lives in LA and knows 5 0 as “the show James Caan’s son is in on.” When the show started DDK was certainly a much bigger deal in Hawaii. And Alex, GP, DDK seem to like private life.

                    And while I’m being snarky, I’m not surprised his girlfriend doesn’t want to make a home in Hawaii. LA is better for her career. He admits not to being a hands on dad. He practically sputtered on some LA morning show when asked about getting married. And not in an “marriage is an out moded institution” way, but in an “I don’t know if I could make that kind of a commitment” way.

                  • I’m not so sure about not hurting the show. If he’s not there, not a problem. But when they try to explain it, and give him green screen scenes, or a totally different story-line away from the others. That is ridiculous and hinders the flow of an episode.
                    I think they should change his status to guest character, I feel he’s nothing more at this point. It would be good for the show and for the character. I would even like to see him on occasion when there is a good explanation why he’s mostly not there. They should have thought about this before they agreed to lesser episodes for him.
                    And this has nothing to to do with the actor, I don’t care either way. But I do care about all characters of the show. And SC’s schedule does hurt the character and ultimately the show. At least I think so.
                    Either you’re in… or you’re not. Like it is… that is crap.

  10. What scheduling conflict is greater than your main job??? Do the powers that be really think that his leaving would end the show? And if H 5-0 is not his main job then that explains why he is only fourth lead on IMDb. But the “true fans” will undoubtedly find a reason to explain that he is still a main character and McG’s soulmate to boot.

  11. Pfft, you all have no clue. I know exactly what will happen.
    Scene A.
    A five minutes long scenerie with surfing surfers and waving waves. Splish splash.
    After that a 10 minutes long “previously on H50”, because nobody remembers anything about Mom from hell lost in space for three years. If Alex will do this “previously on” I won’t mind.
    Now zooooom to Steve’s beach. He is sitting in his wooden chair, Lynn next to him. He is drinking some low fat milk, because, ya know, liver happened.
    They are not speaking because Lynn is trying not to fall in love with this man, what is a very very tough task. And Steve is not speaking because he has this thinking about his life’s choices moment. To lubricate his vocal chords he takes another sip because he needs to talk to Lynn about adopting Nahele. He looks at her an all her strength not to fall in love goes poooooof because Steve has a milk moustache. Not only Lynn’s resilience but the whole female audience and some male too are collapsing. United we stand up for our Steve and united we lay whimpering in the sand.
    Lynn: “You’ve got milk in your face, let me lick it -”
    Steve’s phone rings.
    “McGarrett.”
    Silence.
    “Doris?” Silence. And now we only get to see Steve’s face and we are getting an facial expression feast for the eyes. And from the eyes. Emotional overload by telling a story with just his face. Still whimpering? No? I thought so. Knees clutching, tearing up, hating Doris so much. The whole thing.
    “Okay. I am coming.”
    Steve looks at Lynn. “I – I have to go to… it’s Cath. She is in danger. I have to…”
    With her thump Lynn wipes the tiny spot of milk that’s left on his lips away and says: ” I know. I know.” She smiles. Because she knows.
    Scene B.
    Sitting in a plane Steve instructs his team, what they are going to do. He chose Chin and Kono and Grover because he does not need no scaredy-cat in this mission. Despite of these dangerous situations they are for sure going to face, Steve laughs and smiles all the time like an idiot just in case a talented psych is watching him. He can’t have such a guy thinking he hates his people. And it seems that everybody is a psych these days.
    Scene C.
    They meet Doris in WhatthehelldoIknow and Steve is all business. No friendly word. Just calling her Doris. No hug no nothing. In their black Ninja outfit they are going to fight Daddy Fat (I mean what else would they fight against? Body Fat?) Steve does some incredible Ninja stunts saving Cath in a shabby shack and together they are fighting till the sun goes down.
    At the end Steve and Cath are sitting together. He drinks some milk, because liver. She drinks water. She tries to explain, he says he kind of understands, but she could have told him that her mission is classified. She blames his mother. We hear Doris snorting in the background. Steve says loud and clear: “My mother is dead. She died 24 or 25 (show is not sure about that) years ago.” We hear rustling in the bushes behind and then silence.
    Cath: “Steve?”
    Steve: “I don’t know Cath. I don’t know. Give me time okay? I will tell you in episode 25. I promise.”
    Zooooom on Steve’s emoFace. All the emotions. Sniff. Whimpering. Clutching knees.
    You so want to hug him at the end of this episode.
    There you have it.

    I am really looking forward to this episode. It has all the ingredients (and not ingredients πŸ˜‰ ) to be great. Emotion, action, Ninjas, closure… and no annoyance. Hurray!

      And no, I don’t even care about any wild love interests, or stupid love triangles, or any other shit PL might come up with to prolong the outcome of Steve and Cath being together in the end. I DO love seeing the BTS pics of MB being back on set. I think that woman rocks her scenes, and Catherine is a fantastic character all on her own. She doesn’t need a man to hang on to shine. She is the only female character I really like on this show. Because she knows what she’s doing, and I buy her action and all the other stuff too.

He can knievel together with Adam and so Steve has a reason to kick Adam’s wimpy a$$ from here to the next duct tape shop or ramen noodle soup kitchen where he can wash the dishes all day. He doesn’t like to get his hands dirty. He has his yakuza goons for that. And his wife.

    Lynn is just a plot device to show Steve trying to move on. In 617 we found out she was still very important to him and was worried about her and not only understood why she lied to him but admitted that he, Saint Steve, would have done the same thing. So has he moved on? No. Is he in a committed relationship with Lynn? No. Ask Airplane girl. Cath will be back permanently with Steve at the end (I am not referring to E707) because that’s the way PL wants it. He has said he knows how the show will ultimately end and he brings Cath back, or plans to, whenever he thinks that might happen. He just wants to drive the various pro-Cath and anti-Cath factions into a feeding frenzy for a little lighthearted fun, which we apparently are all clamoring for. Nothing I, or anyone else, thinks or feels will have any impact on what he does. It would be the height of arrogance to think that a returned tweet, a hand shake at SOTB or a selfie with him is anything but politeness on his part or that those things make one his BFF, rewriting his show to honor someone else’s concept of how the characters stories play out.

    Leica: I didn’t understand. Who was hiding in the bushes? Lynn with a shoe?

    GNP: NOT New York! What did I ever do to you?

    Moonjat: If he’s filming when SOTB is held, he won’t be able to avoid showing.

    HeyD50: If you were REALLY psychic you would know McG is not standing next to Cath in those pictures because Lynn is holding a gun on them. When she’s done there she’ll drink some milk and go after Alicia who will talk her down and find her a therapist who treats people with low self esteem. I think you are just a pretend psychic and don’t understand body language at all. Perhaps we should all take classes with the “true fans” so we get it right? Sign me up-Not.

    Kimphin: I wouldn’t worry about typos. Sometimes they make more sense than the scripts.

    Yes, I did. And the crazies in the fandom apparently left their covens long enough to bombard the PL with their nastiness so, he had to take it down. It has happened before. Unfortunately, the character comes between McGarrett and Danny in their world and they express it with Junior High mentality, because their hate is stronger than reason. They think this will change PL’s mind and she will be gone permanently. I don’t think so. All they have accomplished is to infuriate him AGAIN, and his commitment to the character gets stronger with every sick comment. The ABC’s celebrate because their real problem is less with the character and more with the McRolls personally. I’m not even sure which faction is the most vile. Maybe it is an dishonor that they both share.

    As for poor Lynn, she has to find out sooner or later and accept that:

    1. McG says he has no girlfriend. She’s just a booty call. (701).

    2. The ” I got one of those” (Cath) is still very much around and now he knows where she is. (702)

    3. McG is still in love with Cath, and he’s miserable because the believes he lost her. (701 and 702).

    None of us who deal with reality believe that Steve and Cath will be together in 707. PL told us that much already. But his previous actions indicate that the reunion is coming later, because they are Endgame, just as much as Danny will leave the show because there is no commitment to that character- apparently on anyone’s part. Maybe the ABC’s and McDannos should stop stirring their Cauldron’s long enough to actually watch the same show everyone else is. Their recipe? One part hatred, one part stupidity, one part jealousy, one part desperation, and a really healthy dose of immaturity.

    And to all the haters out there, let me say, with all due respect ( which means I have none), if PL wanted to kill the character, he would have done so already. Chew on that one.

    ( and all this before I have had my first morning coffee!)

        PL said “that character can’t die” and nothing has moved forward with that storyline since he said that, so I do believe there is a plan.

        And yes, Lynn is there when Catherine shows up. I think that’s kind of sad, more for Lynn than Cath. Everything we’ve been shown so far this season points to Lynn and Steve not being a couple, or if they are… well that’s even sadder for Lynn since Steve is pining for his lost love. So, they decide to try to date again and Catherine shows up, tells Steve that they need to go save Doris and they leave together. Lynn is left sitting there. Her response is that “Steve split town with Catherine last night” so it sure doesn’t sound good.

I had a feeling it was something not on the regular media sites because it would have probably brought out the harpies explaining it all, because we obviously can’tread. Which begs the question- if everyone knows about the site and they use it to show how smart and perceptive they are, why is this particular bit of news not being publicized by them?

                  Just curious, did it indicate to whom Lynn was speaking? Strange comment to make to herself. Using the words “split town with Catherine” doesn’t sound like she was OK with Steve taking off with the (maybe) ex. . If Lynn had said that Steve left to go save his Mom, it would convey different message entirely. Just hope Lynn wasn’t too dumb to stick around and wash the dishes. But who knows. Maybe she is that dumb. (Me? I would smash the dirty dishes with the food still on them, toss in any left overs and dump the mess on top of his bed, along with a nice bottle of red wine.

Anyway – unless they get an exclusive interview with TPTB, a lot of their info is gleaned from sides. The comical thing is that the self appointed “superfans” who get the sides too then pose their questions to those entertainment outlets on twitter in a way that they know will get chosen because they know the answer is in the sides. It’s amazing how much people feel the need to be “noticed”.

    “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” by Hank Williams

    Hear that lonesome whippoorwill
    He sounds too blue to fly
    The midnight train is whining low
    I’m so lonesome I could cry

    I’ve never seen a night so long
    When time goes crawling by
    The moon just went behind the clouds
    To hide its face and cry

    Did you ever see a robin weep
    When leaves begin to die?
    Like me, he’s lost the will to live
    I’m so lonesome I could cry

    The silence of a falling star
    Lights up a purple sky
    And as I wonder where you are
    I’m so lonesome I could cry
