    Maybe I missed it but why did the nurse bake that “pie”

    The most specific reason is she's crazy wacko.

    It happened right after she was fired from the public hospital, though.

    Now that we see her banging her head against the wall, I guess crazy wacko about sums it up.

    Didn't she make two pies? I seem to recall two trips across the street but only one hurling episode.

    *Episode 5*

    More and more like a typical late 20th century gangster movie now. The scene in where Jason Schwartzman's character's brother and his assistant kill the two in the bar/restaurant was straight out of Goodfellas. I know he was gonna off those guys. Then the "meet" with Chris Rock's assistant, same thing. That felt like it was out of The Godfather. You knew where it was going, but you wanted to listen to what they were saying.

    I like the season as I like good gangster movies, but there's really (at least now), nothing all that unusual about the story, except for the crazy nurse, who was barely in the episode. Now, there's going to be a full out gangster war. Again pretty typical of gangster stories. Hopefully this takes a turn for the weird very soon.

    Well, considering the Black gangsters have "hired" (blackmailed) the deranged female escaped convicts as hit-men to use against the Italian gangsters, I suspect a certain amount of weird is forthcoming... :D

    I just haven't seen anything that the funeral home owners ( still can't get anyones names right in this season) did to set her off?

    Well, none of her previous victims ever did anything to set her off...

    Targets of opportunity?

    Exactly. She is a serial killer.

    She purposefully lives across the street to be near death and savor watching others mourn her victims.

    That's how I see it, anyway.

    Yes, a contributing factor. I thought maybe she was trying to get sickness to hit the teen girl when she was in her home to clean and listen to French records, so she could "nurse her back to health." I think there's a mental illness term for that but I forgot it.

    Munchausen syndrome by proxy (a.k.a. "factitious disorder imposed on another," a term I hadn't heard until I saw it just now on Wikipedia).

    When Ethelrida first meets Nurse Mayflower in S4E1, she's "attending" a funeral but in a side room off the parlor. Are we to assume it was one of her victims? Was the funeral for someone of significance to the story?

    It's a funeral parlor, so not every deceased is necessarily her victim but she clearly has knowledge of the deceased who are sent over from her hospital and is prior acquainted with the funeral parlor father. I believe she likes to be near death in general, and steal heirlooms from her victims as mementos.

    When Loy gives his little 1619 speech, it would have been closer to 300 years than 400 years.

    If that had been episode one, I would not have watched episode two. Yawn.

    I enjoyed the last episode. Stuff is starting to happen. Torturing the crazy brother was kind of interesting. The Rabbi protecting Loy's kid was another interesting plot turn (though kind of expected). Still not sure what is going to happen with crazy nurse. She managed to wiggle her way out of trouble this time.

    As I've been saying, this seems more of a classic mob story than a very quirky Coen Bros. homage, but there are some parts that fit in. When they took Loy's son to the (I guess it was a) cemetery, an article I read said it was a reference to Miller's Crossing, which I guess, was more of a classic mob story as well. Still enjoying it though.

    Yeah. This episode was good. Twists and turns. It is on — no coming back.

    I knew the guy with gout wouldn’t be suffering from that long.

    ...and I don't think that Dr. Harvard is long for this world either! I foresee some poison macaroons in his future!
