hedda62: pay phone with "green roof" (phone)
It is 6 degrees F. outside, which makes getting up to do things not the most pleasant thought, but I've managed to zip through quite a few tasks this week (at the standing-up desk, mostly - which is in the coldest room) so feel justified in being almost through Foxglove Summer and having watched POI 4.11 "If - Then - Else" twice.

And wow, what a stunning episode. Structurally brilliant (if not unpredictable - lots of people guessed the format based on the previews and the title) and a perfect exhibition of the show's combination of action and emotional punch (emotional knockout, even), with Finch-voiced moral lesson to boot (and having just published a book full of chess metaphors I am not at all prejudiced, but I thought it was beautifully done). I have been spending more time on Tumblr than I should looking at the ideas and beautiful gifs posted (though not much discussion - still not a good place for that).

serious spoilers )

In conclusion, fantastic episode. And now I have to wake up the kid and make sure he finishes packing - we drive to Allentown today, how much fun in this weather.
