    I was a little confused about Elliot’s leverage over his girlfriend (for lack of a better term). So he drugged her so she would fail her drug test and lose her children. But it’s not like he can undrug her. So what reason does she have to cooperate?

    I guess she normally wouldn't be tested before the drugs left her system unless he ratted her out?

    I kept waiting for him to tell her that he had lied about drugging her...

    Yeah me too but as soon as she went into the bathroom I said "yup she's about to slit her wrists" and why he didn't see that coming as well seems very unlike this show.

    Curious what the fate of Darlene, that setup with the Agent (forget her name) was pretty intense and don't have high hopes for either

    Does anyone know how many episodes are left? They promoted the next episode as being commercial free, like the first one. But it's not the last one, is it?

    I kept waiting for that too, however what if it took a couple of hours for her to manipulate her boss to log in? I think he had to make sure she was dosed to properly blackmail her.
    Darlene had the gun, considering these people are dark army and she luckily survived the ambush at the restaurant in s02e10 why'd both Dom and Darlene just go limp there?

    I thought the same thing. I yelled "You have a gun! Just shoot her!"

    Which, of course, wouldn't have stopped the Dark Army, but maybe would give her a chance to get away. (Assuming she could take out the taxidermist and the two DA soldiers, that is.)

    Darlene had the gun drawn already.. Considering they just ordered Dom to kill her, as if she were nothing, and the taxidermist and 2 thugs walked in not really expecting her to be alive and what appeared to be no weapons in their hands. I'm surprised she didn't at least point the gun at them, I mean you could make an argument Darlene is not a killer, but she kinda is, maybe have her hesitate and Dom gets the jump on her to save her mom because things going bad in there will have repercussions for Dom.. I just don't see Darlene going limp noodle like that.
