No time for preamble this week; let's get straight to it (he said, unaware that saying so was itself preamble).
We begin with Big Jim sitting at his desk, reviewing a stack of the census forms he and Rebecca collected last week.
Hey! Look! You can see a photo of Carolyn under Joe's form! Get a good look: that's all you'll see of Carolyn this week, which makes this the third consecutive episode that Aisha Hinds has been absent. This is not exactly unprecedented: Hinds' Carolyn was missing from four straight episodes during the first season. So clearly, this show's producers have no problem being Hinds-less for extended periods of time.
Which begs a question: why not simply kill Carolyn off? Wouldn't doing that be preferable to having her disappear for several episodes at a time? I don't know if it's some sort of scheduling issue with Hinds, or a failure on the producers' part to find anything for the character to do, or what, but it's weird, and it's very noticeable, and it seems like writing the character out would be preferable.
