    Perry Mason (HBO)



    It's an origin story.

    I'm guessing that the final episode will end with Mason alone in a courtroom, when the classic theme starts playing.

    Yeah, suspected that there'd be more to [SPOILER]Robert Patrick's interest in that family.[/SPOILER]

    Liked Paul Drake's introduction. Makes sense for the character to start out as a cop (not unheard off for cops to become private investigators, after leaving the force). Liked that he hasn't met Mason yet, but is investigating things on his own. The show might be called Perry Mason, but it appears that we'll also be getting the origin story for Paul Drake.

    Still not sure how Mason will make the leap from private detective to lawyer. Will they reveal him to have gone to law school, pre-WWI (and simply never practiced, following the trauma of the war)? Will he go off to law school, at the end of the series? Or will E.B. or someone help him with fake credentials?

    Keep mixing up (name-wise) Sister Alice (the show's blonde radio preacher) with Sister Molly (the blonde radio preacher from Penny Dreadful: City of Angels). Suspecting [SPOILER]that the kidnapping of Charlie has something to do with this church. After all, the baby of two members (and grandson of another) gets kidnapped. A member of the church is involved in the kidnapping. Now Sister Molly... Sister Alice announces that she will resurrect Charlie, after a seizure.[/SPOILER]

    Speculation: [SPOILER]Could be a scam involving the church. Heard that Sister Alice might be based on Aimee Semple McPherson. According to Wikipedia, McPherson was apparently kidnapped in 1926, with accusations that the whole thing was fabricated. This story could've been based on the McPherson case (only having it be a baby who is kidnapped, rather than the preacher herself). Maybe baby Charlie isn't dead. Since the first episode, I've wondered why someone would stitch open the eyes of a dead baby (thought it was overkill). Maybe it was another baby, with the eyes stitched open to be a distraction. Make the parents not pay too much attention to the entire face (thus realizing that it's not their baby), as they're seeing this horrible thing that the kidnappers have done to the baby's eyes. Baby Charlie might still be alive, somewhere. Waiting for him to be "resurrected" by Sister Alice. Drawing attention to her and her church. People flocking to this church, lead by a woman able to "bring back the dead".[/SPOILER]

    E.B. doesn't seem to be in the greatest health.
