My thoughts:

When a strange blight comes over the land and the animals fall into a deep sleep, Anna is convinced she can help find the cure.

Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes”

Over the weekend we watched Say Anything, one of my favorite 80s movies featuring John Cusack, Ione Skye, and Lili Taylor.

In the movie, Lloyd stands outside Diane’s house holding a large boombox which plays this song. This comes just after their breakup.

Huge Breaking Bad fan here! I was so excited to watch the new Breaking Bad movie El Camino over the weekend. It was really intense. The soundtrack is interesting too. I don’t want to spoil anything, but this song fits so well where it’s introduced right before a revenge scene.

Before moving to Seattle, Bernadette suffered a catastrophic event in her arcitect career that’s totally changed her; she’s become extremely anti social  and tends to hide from everyone; she does what she wants, on her own terms, regardless of what anyone thinks; and now others, including Elgin, are suffering because of it.
