Looking For Mr. Bitcoin

Biggs: "Well, real's going to change. Just watch. That was a metaphor for other things going on in this show, PS."


This is the trouble, and the trouble is this: That all great friendships are first and foremost the story of a grand romance, and all great romances are first and foremost the story of a wonderful friendship.

After her little run-in below, Kalinda does the only thing sensible: She takes the file to Dana, drops it off, and walks away. Maybe she's hating herself, maybe she's scared, maybe this is all an elaborate way for the show to freak us out -- trust me, it's this one -- and maybe the actress wasn't even informed entirely what was going to happen, so she's playing it as smartly as she can, but either way when we respond to the Kalinda stuff, I honestly think that's why: Because the trouble here and everywhere is simple. This job means growing up in public, and that continues to be an amazing thing and a serious opportunity and responsibility, and there's still not much I'm all that clear on, but I think I'm right on this one: We spend so much time trying to discern the difference between friends and lovers, but I don't think I'm wrong when I say the finest and kindest solution is to treat each like its opposite.

But I mean, that's a thinker, so before that: Kalinda stops Jason Biggs at the elevator and says that actually all three of them are Mr. Bitcoin, she's finally figured it out, and Elaine wrote the manifesto and he came up with the idea and Bao wrote the code and so really it's all three of them -- although even when you put it that way, it's still mostly Bao -- but then he's like Maybe or maybe not or maybe you're Mr. Bitcoin too and we're all Mr. Bitcoin and Mr. Bitcoin is inside you waiting to be mined beyond the Skyrim and then there's like this baby in space and a bone becomes a space ship.
