As always, stellar acting, in this episode, seeing how terribly everyone else has been affected really left me in tears. Great plot, watching them cope without Red was illuminating. Lovely to see Brian Dennehy, what a tremendous presence he still has. I just, out of national pride, have one slight quibble. When Red asks for a bottle of single malt - 'none of that Islay...' - he pronounced it as Izzlay, whereas it's EYElay or if you know the area well, EYElah. I have to say Islay's nine distilleries are held in great esteem, you can do a tour in one day and get seriously tipsy!!!!! lol But who am I to question the fabulous palate of Red Reddington! One of the best characters ever in tv, IMO. I wonder if the way Red pronounced it is the way it is pronounced in the US? No criticism, just wondering. Perhaps another Sidereeler will know? :)
