    I'll disagree. When they had the adjoining motel rooms he took a long look at the door between them. Then when she knocked you could tell he was thinking seriously and as he went to open the door he slicked back his hair. That seemed like preparation to me.

    It's quite possible--even likely--that the monitoring company doesn't know that though. They just have someone they're monitoring and they don't have, or care about, the details of the case.

    Definitely; me too. I hope they don't go that way. I won't like it.

    Yeah, I got the feeling that this last week Walt realized what he was getting himself into, and backed away.

    If the marriage fails anyway, though, I suspect all bets are off. I hope they can avoid going there.

    In which case they simply state "a person with an electronic monitoring bracelet has exceeded the allowed limits of the device." However, they do know, because if/when law enforcement detains that person, there has to be a way to verify that person's limits, and not just rely on the device being accurate.

    It's a case of a writer who got lazy and didn't research it first.

    I have no problems believing that this guy would use a simple shorthand instead of saying "a person with an electronic monitoring bracelet" all the time.

    I'm not sure how this relates to what I wrote. Obviously the monitoring company knows a number of things about the monitoree; in the show they gave his name for example. Of course they know who he is and what his range is. But that doesn't mean they know the particulars about his legal status, whether he's a parolee, out on bail, or whatever. They don't need to know that to monitor him.

    I definitely won't disagree with this: it's highly likely they didn't research it. I'm just saying that having the monitoring center guy call him a "parolee" when he's really out on bail is not outlandish and I can easily see that happening in real life.

    Vic knows that Branch is a kidnapper, but she doesn't know if she should report it because of what happened to her before? Hum, that seems like a stretch to me.

    I don't think I remembered that the former sheriff was Branch's uncle. But they do have the same last name.:eek: I like Lucian, he's entertaining. Hope he's around more.

    And David Ridges is still alive.:eek:

    So the tribe has enough power to get that guy parole even though a law enforcement person says he threatened to kill someone?

    I really enjoyed the 1st season of this show. The 2nd season not so much. After 2 episodes of season 3 I've deleted my season pass. Did they hire a bunch of new writers or something?

    No not a stretch at all. Whistleblowers (in different occupations) often have a hard life afterward. At minimum they can expect to be shunned, but threats against them and their families is also not uncommon. Remember that Branch comes from a wealthy family...he wrote the $100k check for Henry's bail like he was writing a check at the supermarket.

    I didn't expect the "ex-lover/stalking" thing though...I thought Gorski's actions were purely for revenge for Vic's testimony leading to the dismissal of the other officer, leading him to suicide.

    It's not the tribe...the ex-tribal police chief apparently has friends in a lot of places. Notice that one time when Walt went to go visit Henry in jail, that the ex-chief was the one who showed up in the visiting room? And that the guards let him do whatever he wanted to do within the jail?

    I thought last night's episode was pretty solid. Always good to see Parker Stevenson. :) I thought they did a good job advancing the stories and I liked the mystery of the week.

    Although they kind of ruined the mystery when the photo they showed of the young heir was so obviously a young Parker Stevenson that there was no doubt when PS showed up that he was the real deal.

    I like how the season is coming together...everything is connected. And the hints in the premiere that the story was going to sail off into woo-woo land were, fortunately, mere misdirection.

    Yep, good ep. They are definitely advancing the story in interesting ways.:up:

    Took me a minute to recognize Parker!

    Ferg cracks me up.

    OK that was a weird plot twist, with Walt joining forces with (of all people) Ed Gorski to save Vic and Sean from the sovereign citizens. I loved the look on Vic's face when she saw who was about to rescue her; I think she was trying to decide which was worse, staying with the sovereigns and facing their "justice" or going with Gorski :D

    I did wonder if Gorski was going to do something with Vic and/or Sean as they drove away from the compound, and I do wonder if that is truly the last we'll see of him.

    Yes- last night's episode makes me wonder how much of what we think we know about Gorski is accurate. He seemed fairly sympathetic last night. Just seems like maybe somehow there's more to the story that we haven't heard yet hat paints him in a different light.

    Great Episode. I'm sure he won the duel or the show would be over, but I'm pretty sure this isn't the end of these crazies. And I'm sure the Husband is gone and she will start hitting on Longmire.

    We lost track of Branch, didn't we? I assume Branch shoots the bad guy before the bad guy can shoot Walt.

    At least they didn't keep us guessing on the letter Vic gave Walt.

    I'm sure I should know what the convict is, but I don't remember. Something to do with Cady?

    Ferg usually cracks me up, but now it looks like they are going to make him into a big baby, getting his feelings hurt that he gets crap assignments.:rolleyes:

    I'm tired of the Vic/Sean drama. Either fix them or break them up. I don't care which but it's getting old.

    Yeah the writers tried to make us think it was going to be her resignation letter by showing Vic's apparently empty desk (as opposed to Branch's cluttered one).

    He is the town alcoholic who took the fall for the accident that nearly killed Cady. His son was actually the one behind the wheel, and Walt knows it, but the father insisted on being the one to go to jail.

    Actually, Ferg has always been portrayed as Absaroka's version of Barney Fife. The casting of a short, overweight guy for the role was definitely intentional. You could see as the show has progressed that he wants to take on more challenges and is trying to come into his own as a LEO, like trying to guess the time of death based on the evidence he saw at the scene.

    When Walt asked him to go contact the coroner I thought it's because he wanted to talk to Vic in private, but then that didn't happen. I didn't see Ferg's reaction as being a baby, but you could tell he was disappointed. I would be too if I thought my superiors were not allowing me to hone my skills.

    Agreed.
