Parenthood. Just typing the words will cause tears to fall from my eyes

THE ANSWER TO THURSDAY'S TRIVIA QUESTION: Okay, so I probably should have waited until I was all caught up on Suits before I asked a trivia question about it. The law firm on the show was called Pearson Hardman, Pearson Darby & Pearson Specter. 
FIRST FIVES: James Gabriele, Mike O'Dea, Kara Brennan, Justin Jones & Karen Feldman
HONORABLE MENTION: Monica Caraffa who also was the only one watching Hindsight and got the bonus question right.

Mary's still not back to normal after being raped. She thought she should hit the road and go to her chateau in Chambord (Try saying that 10x fast). Just as she was about to head out, she got wind that the guards were after Conde for being a protestant traitor so she bagged her plans, got her carriage and took him to his bro, King Antoine's place. The King just so happened to be throwing a party where he picked random people to have sex with each other. Mary got so freaked out that she went to her room. The King chose his bro to be with some chick who must have read 50 Shades of Gray. She blindfolded him to help him pretend that she was his true love, the Queen. Bash branded a gay guy to convince his lover, the cardinal to leave the castle and stop causing so much trouble. Oh and apparently, Bash got drunk a long time ago and slept with his 1/2 sister, but don't worry, he knows it was a mistake and Kenna was cool. Nice to see King Henry back even if he was just a ghost. Mary helped Conde escape the guards again by having Laith brand his brand off with a scalding sword. She started to get her groove back but when she went to see Francis,  he was sound asleep with his colicky kid and Lola. 

I fell asleep really early last night. That NEVER happens to me. Denial is a pretty powerful thing. If I didn't watch it maybe it wouldn't happen. I knew that when I watched last nights episode of Parenthood,  it meant that the next one would be the last one and I'm just not ready to say goodbye yet. I'm not ready. Of course, I didn't sleep through the night. I woke up at midnight and my house was dark and quiet. Just me and the dogs and I decided to do it. I decided to sit and watch and cry all by myself. I'm still crying, but I'm SO glad I watched. While I'm not thrilled that Sarah's going to marry Hank, I am thrilled that her Dad, the best Dad, will be there to walk her down the aisle. I can't even explain the sound that came out of my mouth when Amber put her brand new son, in her grandfather's arms and introduced baby Zeke to his great-grandfather. I honestly didn't see that coming but it was so right. The circle of life at it's finest. I don't know why nobody had a camera to capture that moment at the hospital, but even without photos, I'll never forget it. I'll also never forget the look on Kristina's face when she was talking to Max about his future, the look on Victor's face when Joel and Julia were arguing in the backyard, the look on Sarah's face when she checked in on her Dad during the siblings dinner or the look on Crosby's face when he found out that Jasmine went to Adam behind his back. Amber, Sarah and Joni Mitchell, well, could anything have been more perfect? I don't think so. I honestly don't know how I'll make it though next weeks finale, like I said, I'm just not ready to say goodbye.


-I can't even imagine anyone NOT having Amazon Prime but for anyone out there who isn't able to get a case of Kleenex delivered to their home in a day, Amazon is running the Golden Globe winning Transparent for free. All 10 episodes of Season 1. I reviewed the show when it first came out. It's a good show, don't get me wrong, Jeffrey Tambor's performance is incredible, but it's an odd show and it's DEFINITELY NOT A COMEDY! Take advantage of the free access, but honestly, just get Amazon Prime. It's totally worth it on so many other levels. 

-We all lovvvvve Puppy Bowl, some of us are maybe in to Kitty Bowl (not me) and of course there's Fish Bowl too.  BUT, if you're just NOT an animal or fish lover and you're not into the big game, how about Toddler Bowl on TLC? Yep…babies in diapers! Woo Hoo…SO NOT my thing at all but if it's yours, tune in! 

Friday's Trivia Question: This weekend is the Pro Bowl. In what city is it played?
