Mind your manners and enjoy the chocolate in a dance of sparkling wit and political intrigue.

Dive into the inner workings of Lord Davenant

Do you remember when we first met Davenant? Diane noticed how handsome he was. He was charming. There was a little mutual flirting. He didn’t make your skin crawl, or sound any warning bells in the depths of your subconscious. How do you feel about Davenant now? Davenant is very intelligent. He’s excellent at any game, be it Chasse or Social Graces, or Getting Away With [Spoilers]. He loves a challenge and he hates to lose…and that’s what makes him a little stupid (that special kind of profound stupidity found in people who are a bit too aware of their intelligence).

Team-Writing in the World of Tremontaine

Delia: As soon as the Mighty Brain Trust that is the Tremontaine Summit, Plotting, and Deli Nosh Weekend came to the decision that most of Episode 7 of Season 3 should be set in the ducal hunting lodge at the dark midnight of the year, my eyes met Liz’s across the living room. We both knew, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that Episode 7 Must Be Ours. It was the obvious practical choice—structurally, it makes sense for guest authors to pop in mid-season, when the plot arc has been firmly established by the staff writers, and preferably in an episode that differed in tone, focus, or setting from the rest. Which is pretty much Episode 7 in a structural nutshell. But that’s not why we wanted it and no other. No, not at all. Liz: On the one hand, we were instantly attracted to the delicious compactness of getting a lot of characters into a country house for a...Read More >
