Archie Panjabi is British. I hear it too. Probably doesn't hear it herself. DH is Aussie and swears up and down he 'doesn't have an accent.'

I know she's not American and that's fine. It just seems to me that she turns it on every so often.

Pretty interesting episode last night and Peter certainly threw his weight/position around. Definitely thinks a lot of himself.

And, I agree, I hope Alicia and Kalinda patch things up.

I'm afraid Alicia is going to sleep with Peter. When they're together, or speaking on the phone, she doesn't have hate in her voice/eye.

That business with Peter and the prep school principal showed his true colors... I think the writers are hinting that he really is a criminal and should be in prison.

That's what makes this show so good.....the twists and turns. Told DH about Kalinda's accent popping up, and he said, it's probably deliberate; after all, she turned out to be Lilo. More mystery. We'll probably find out something we never knew about Peter and Kalinda.

I still hope Kalinda and Alicia reconcile. It always seems that lead female characters on TV shows never have any close galpals, and they were so opposite, but had fun together. I always had the idea that Kalinda didn't willingly sleep with Peter; but like finding Grace, she didn't want Alicia to know.

I love this show and it's characters, especially Kalinda but she drives me up a wall!

Am I the only one who thinks she mumbles? It's so darn hard to understand her sometimes and she hardly moves her lips when she talks either. Sometimes I have to run it back two or three times to make out what she said. So frustrating !!

She DOES mumble. I guess she doesn't want to be understood sometimes; that's part of her mystery.

As far as the Peter versus the Headmistress thing, I would have phrased it differently. If I were him, I would have played up the "It's not wise to go against me" line, rather than the "You don't say no to me".

I understand that Alicia wants her kids back in the school she trusts but I don't know that Peter agrees; the fact that he went to bat for this so strongly for her belief makes me feel like they might reconcile, at least in Soap Opera fashion.

But he really was using the power of his office to coerce her into enrolling the kids... and if that's not illegal, it's not much of a stretch to believe that he was guilty of whatever other shenanigans he was in jail for to begin with! I think he's headed for a fall - and not back into Alicia's arms!
