Fantastic episode and has got me on the edge of my seat for the release! Re: the Dead Pool, I hadn’t considered Catherine Standish potentially being killed but the discussion of how that could shake things up was very interesting (though I wish no one had to go! Fill Slough House to the rafters, I say!). It may just be my love of River talking here, but I do think there are still places to go with him. For one thing, there have been several references to how much he sounds like Lamb, and I wonder whether his lacking ties now could be setting him up to becoming not the Bond character he wants to be, but a true Lamb protege instead? Or some sort of cross between them?
Only a few days left before I find out, though it sounds like there will be more unresolved questions!
Glad you enjoyed the episode! Interesting idea about River turning into Lamb. We’ll all see soon enough!
