Illustration of pirate Bartholomew Roberts commemorating his capture of 11 ships with only two of his own. He was able to do this by surprising the captains of the 11 ships, who were on shore negotiating. Roberts, posthumously called “Black Bart,” captured over 400 ships, more than any other pirate of the 1700s, operating off both the Americas and Africa.

Lachlan, feet in the sand, and other doubts I have...

So, I think we all remember SSW and those feet close to Lachlan, right? Still don’t know what they ment, but I have other doubts about that episode:

  1. Why did he stop kicking the boot when the policeman was asking questions? I mean, he would have been rescued and Aaron and Robert would have been arrested, easy as that. But instead, he remained silent. Was he “protecting” his kidnappers?
  2. It’s obvious that he was able to free himself (opening the boot from the inside?), so why didn’t he do it before sinking in the lake?
  3. Feet part here… I think it’s his family: Lawrence, Chrissie and Rebecca. Can’t imagine what it means.
  4. Now he’s on the shore, and Robert threatens him in front of a paramedic and Victoria, and he remains silent… not a peep about being held in a boot and almost drowned. Still protecting Robert???
  5. Next day, at HF: He did the laundry (thus washing every evidence of his kidnapping and blood from his head), says nothing about the events to his mother and aunt, feigns ignorance about the crash, asks Lawrence if anybody besides James died and looks relieved (?) when he finds out that Aaron will be OK. Is this kid alright?
  6. After everything went back to “normal”, he never used all that info to threaten and/or blackmail Robert.

If I didn’t know better, I’d say Lachlan is being protective of Robert(?). Can someone help me about this, please??

“My favorite tv show” is a phrase which pisses me off because it comes across as so simple and meaningless, but House was never meaningless to me. Two years since it ended, and yet I still sit here and cry as I type this. It was much more than just “my favorite tv show”, and although they didn’t do it for me, I cannot thank those who created that show week in and week out enough.

Thank you.
