THOUGHTS ON THE KNICK, SEASON 2, EPISODE 5

"Whiplash" (spoilers)
  1. Glad Lucy isn't under her father's spell anymore
  2. I hope Henry Robertson isn't a bad guy; can't handle another bad guy
    Maybe he WON'T become a porn baron
  3. Dr. Zinberg is stuffy and cautious as hell but AT LEAST HE ISN'T CUTTING OUT PARTS OF PEOPLE'S BRAINS WITHOUT ANY KNOWLEDGE OF THE CONSEQUENCES
    I was HORRIFIED when Thackery did that
  4. Bubonic plague? Is Speight's murder somehow connected to Cornelia's time in San Francisco?
    Or will Cornelia's knowledge gained working with plague in San Francisco help her solve Speight's murder?
  5. Eugenics makes me SICK
    Everything Everett says makes me SICK
  6. What sort of shitty things happened in the early days of cancer treatment with radon?
    Be safe, Bertie!
  7. That scene with Barrow's wife BROKE my HEART
  8. Hope Alan is as warm and loving with our kids as Barrow is with his!!!
    "There they are. Sleep tight. Don't let the bedbugs bite."
  9. I love love loved the dinner scene with Bertie, his family, and his girlfriend
    Heartwarming to see Bertie so happy and his family loosening up. Also, the heart-to-heart with Genevieve and Bertie's mom!
  10. "Oh [Jesus] was a Jew all right. Know how you can tell? His mother thought he was a God and he thought his mother was a virgin."
  11. What's going to happen when Barrow buys Junia?
    She's not going to go join him in that new apartment. Barrow, you're an idiot
  12. Also, that two-floor apartment Barrow bought is the equivalent of $196,000 today. If only.
