Why? That is so weird.


That was intense! Was there no other option? Like a transfer.

It is weird. But I think I did read somewhere that priests in the old days didn't talk / look at women. They had to be separated.

@ a transfer. They were the transfers.
Archie (the one with an existential crisis in s2) ended up getting a promotion.

I keep forgetting to catchup on Evil

Oh is that the punishment you get for being a bad priest?

They still separate women from men in church, don't they? They can't sit together?

I think it's actually an honor, like a I am the Emperor's personal in-court priest.

Until you learn the Emperor is a psycho.
Then it's a demotion.

We'll have to go to St. Petersburg and check out a mass, I guess.

Yea, if I lived there I would do anything I could to hide on my land and never meet any royal/noble. I don't need them bothering me / making fun of me.

It's ok. We don't understand Latin, either. "I liked it better when the mass was in Latin Russian. It's nicer when you don't know what they're saying."

Well, to be fair, Archie is the only priest who really hangs around the court permanently. The other guys flit in and out. But Peter can never resist the opportunity to displease Archie.

I love the grandma in While You Are Sleeping.

He really is a man child.

Best movie grandma ever. "I don't drink anymore. I don't drink any less, either." Now I feel like watching the movie.

Just below Henry VIII. Henry VIII is worse and Henry is not as fun/entertaining. At least Peter has that going for him. Plus, I could understand being a man child and having arrested development when everything we've been told about his parents points to them being abusive.

Nicolas Holt's portrayal has that going.

True. They did him a disservice.

True, like a song must have the right singer for it (American Idol's favorite thing to say) a role needs to have the right actor for it.

I really want to see flashbacks of his mom in s3. In s2 we got Jason Isaacs as his dad. But the mom sounds like a real crazy bi*ch

Oh I can see it. Did he work with Nicolas or a younger actor?

Nope, definitely the MVP of the show.

I am surprised casting people, like everyone else in Hollywood, don't try to pat themselves on the back and give themselves awards for casting. Or is there awards for casting people and I just don't know about it?

He worked with Nicholas because Peter saw him in a hallucination. Peter spent all damn day and night digging a grave ---- just in case Catherine/their son Paul died in childbirth. According to the show it was tradition for the father to dig a grave, don't ask if that's historically accurate because I have no clue --- and when he woke up Jason Isaacs was in the grave and a real ass to him.

eta: I found the scene on YT
