Oh hey, Season 3. Haven’t thought about you in a while. And I want to start season 4 now, so…
The format of my synopses has changed. The fabulosity of Patty’s clothes has absolutely not changed.
Flashforward Mystery #1: Patty is driving. Some other car runs into her! Whodunnit?
Flashforward Mystery #2: Mysterious Hobo hangs around a dumpster. Tom’s murdered body is found in the same dumpster! Whodunnit?
Main Plot Line: Patty is the court-appointed trustee of the Tobin estate. The Tobins are big business people involved in some kind of Ponzi scheme thing, as per usual. She must figure out how and where and when all their money went wherever it did.
Joe Tobin, alcoholic oldest son, becomes Patty’s go-to dude for a minute, but mostly to establish him as a down-to-earth character at first. He wants to make sure he looks as if he did everything he could to help the investigation (which also includes the DA’s office, where Ellen works now).
Joe gives Patty a cell phone number, and Hobo is in possession of the cell phone. Tom investigates and finds clothes in the dumpster belonging to a DMM. He investigates more. Everyone is red-herringed into believing DMM–a lady who looks SO MUCH like Emily Prentiss from Criminal Minds–was having an affair with Dad Tobin (the CEO of the Tobin company), and Tom decides to investigate this angle because why not.
Episode 5: The Doctor
The OUaT Spice Girls! Saving the Kingdom with Girl Power! Pictured L-R: Baby, Sporty, Posh, Ginger. Not Pictured: Scary (cuz she’s back in ME trying to reform)
Present-Day Fairy Tale Land: The OUaT Spice Girls (-Scary, of course) are trekking around, and they find errbody dead at their camp site. Hearts are ripped out, so it wasn’t ogres. Oh no, it was Cora! Hook is there still alive, pretending not to be Hook. Cora Plant!
Back in ME, Charming punches Dr. Whale for sleeping with his wife. K. Why not just punch him because he’s a d-bag? Meanwhile, Dr. Whale is asking a helluva lot of questions about how to get back to fairy tale land.
Elsewhere in ME, Regina goes to Jiminy Cricket for magic rehab. She’s teary-eyed talking about her magic addiction, and I’ve missed her so. Jiminy Cricket comments that it’s harder to stop magic than to start it. Ain’t that the truth!
Whale waltzes into Regina’s private counseling session (doesn’t this doctor know anything about HIPAA?) wanting Regina to send him back to his land to see his dead brother. Bum bum bum!
They get rid of Whale, and Jiminy Cricket questions Regina about how she claims she can’t send anybody back anywhere. He doesn’t believe her, but she says she doesn’t have a lot of control over that. She also says this pouty thing that I loled about:
I don’t care about Whale or his brother. I brought who I wanted.
Duke Mantee over at Spoilers did one of these as part of a blogathon, so I decided I wanted to do one, too. I guess the blogathon is put on by this person.
A: At Long Last Love
Forcing the driver to drink champagne. Good idea, errbody.
Oft-maligned tribute to ’30s musicals. I happen to really like this movie for the silliness it is, probably spurred on by my irrational devotion to Cybill Shepherd (not to mention Madeline Kahn, Eileen Brennan, Burt Reynolds, and Cole Porter, but one need not be irrational to be devoted to those).
B: Bad Seed, the
Look at them crazy eyes! Also, I love the mom’s blouse.
I saw this for the first time in a hotel room with my mom when I was in 6th grade. I was pretty sure it was the creepiest. I saw it again recently and realized it’s a pretty smart, sharp movie.
Watch out, Warren William. That’s Cleopatra–comin’ atcha!
Claudette Colbert, you crazy and fabulous, gurl. I love you in pre-codes and in weepy wartime numbers equally, but this movie is so decadently and art-deco-ly delicious.

I wonder if this crossover is intentional. If not, your brain accidentally made something up that my brain only wishes it had come up with.
