TV Guide this week has some info...
Apparently the writers did toy with Emily's father being alive, but ultimately went with her mother instead.
Click to see Spoiler:Conrad had a wife and kids before he met and married Victoria and we'll see them. Lydia, Victoria and Charlotte...at least one of them is really dead. Faux Amanda is really pregnant and due in about two months...but we should question whether Jack is really the father.
Click to see Spoiler:Lydia just won't die (I know, it's not really funny but it's a show-lol). I'm betting Charlotte's alive but if it turns out to be Lydia, I told him he'd be able to hear me laughing all the way across town b/c of that woman's 9 lives.
On another note, when Emily walks out of the Stowaway after discovery Fauxmanda in there and starts sobbing and then is just sitting there on her couch staring into the flames, I almost lost it. Emily Van Camp did such an excellent job of capturing how it feels to have your heart yanked out and wondering how you are going to go on living (at least, she captured how I felt when my father passed away in 1998).
This is such a good show. I hate that I have to wait until September for new episodes!
The role of Emily's mother has been cast
Ho-ly Cow!!! She's going to be goooood!! I'm actually excited to see her in this role!! :nod
I've loved JJL since Fast Times at Ridgemont High! :lol And she's been great on Weeds. She'll be a really good addition.
We can expect to see a new actor as Takeda next season. Hiroyuki Sanada has too many movie deals going, including Wolverine which is filming in Australia, to do it. He'll be replaced by Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, who has a pretty long resume of his own.
