I was prepared to be outraged by the last episode, but it seemed more 'conspiracy-y' to me. You need to have some political theatrics along the way, but I don't want that to be the norm! :)

Looks like they're going to continue down that path for a while. We'll...

I was expecting some story like the Hangover as well. Seemed to me that entire plotline was shown in the preview.

I'm on Homeseer now this year, but I used to be on Vera. I also have Harmony remotes in my setups. And there is a plugin for Vera for Harmony remotes.

So I could actually have a Scene in Vera...

Well . . . we're done.
