Whew!!!! All caught up.  So... how many times can I say "OH MY GOD!" and "WTF?" and "WESLEY, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG YOU WITH YOU?" (Is his imminent heart attack cutting off the supply of blood to his brain?)  Holy Moly.  Nicky had the best line: Is the fucked-upness ever gonna end?” And when did Nick get a sister? I hope this means we'll be delving more deeply into Nicky and Jeremy and the Sampson clan! There are probably a thousand tales right there! LOL.

It sounds like Joe and Jeremy and Edna are the only ones left with full brain capacity. Holy Shit, Louise!!!

Mind-blowing "final" chapter? You mean MORE mind-blowing?  :laugh:  Obviously, I'm with the chorus that's begging and sniveling!  Thanks, Louise!

Oh yeah... it's going to get worse.

And the line "I'm goin ta Tahiti!"is going to echo a few more times before the rest of the shots are fired.

Oh wait did I just give the plot away?

GREAT to see you again Marie!

And yes there will be more today!  I've got an event to go to, I'm halfway done with the next chapter of "Hermes"and I've got a relaxing rest-of-the-weekend with gorgeous weather to keep me encouraged!

Have I already said, "Oh my God!"? Doesn't matter - OH MY GOD!!!!!!!  Poor Colson - but thank god he was there. And, of course, we know that he's as good a shot (or better, lol)  than Ellery!  And speaking of Ellery ... what the hell will his reaction be? And what about Wayne?  I hope he doesn't try to kiss Colson again . . . lol.  Good Lord, and on top of everything else!

And now we have reporters swarming all over the diswasher dead guy - which I guess is better than having them swarm over the dead mayor! 

I'm expecting a swarm of locusts any time now!  Damn  - this is one helluva tale, Louise - thanks!

I just made the final push on getting the final edits into "Tourmaline" and after I've slept, I will be resuming "Agents" in the next chapter as we creep toward the spine-tingling finale!
 
Will Little Nell Wayne die?  Will Dr. Sampson survive surgery?  Will Dr. Boudreau survive the next encounter with the now-exceptionally-ornery Ellery Cantrell, private citizen?  Will Joe succeed in heading Ellery off at the pass before he flies to Tahiti?  Will Colson go with him or talk some sense into him?  Will Katie get arraigned on assault charges?  Will Reynolds find out who put the body in the dishwasher?

And - perhaps most importantly - IS LEWIS STEVENS REALLY DEAD?
