    I loved Sister Julienne's response to Jenny about God not being in the event but being in the response. Lovely....

    I said right at the start that I don't like or trust Delphine one little bit. It looks like she's beginning to show her true colors, though we don't really know what they are yet.

    Glad to see Rose and Harry back together though I'm not at all certain how long that will last. I'm hoping that Lady Mae causes Loxley's downfall in a BIG way. I think Leclair is in for a whole lot of trouble, but I don't believe he's spying for the Germans. There's something else behind what he's doing that I think will take a few episodes to be revealed. I'm also eager to see Thackery get booted out the door, tush first.

    I love the actress, Polly Walker, who plays Delphine, though. She was in the series, Rome.

    I agree, I think the actress does a very good job, and I could be totally wrong about her motives, too. It's her portrayal that made me suspicious in the first place, and that's a credit to Miss Walker. Viewers' eyes are definitely focused on her when she's on screen.

    I don't know if her boyfriend's death is true to the books but I do know that he is not the man she married in real life.

    We briefly meet her future husband in a later episode
    . So I guess he would have been gotten "rid of" in some way - death, dumping, whatever - in the end anyhow. It was quite sad, however.

    What? How could Jenny be leaving the show. Isn't the book centered around her character's memories? I don't want Jenny written off this show. I'm confused....and sad.

    I really am not sure how they will handle the narration.... probably just continue it, but it does seem odd without Jenny there.
