Oh, how we’ve missed Julianna Margulies! Her departure from ER (and, aside from Ghost Ship, the mainstream) left a Margulies-shaped hole in our lives. Now, with her stint on The Sopranos apparently concluded, we’re left Margu-less until, yes, Snakes on a Plane. Check it! She’s credited!

Still, speculation is rife that she’ll return to Soprano-land next year, perhaps in a pivotal role. Our very own blogfather (a.k.a. Papa Blog, Der Blogvater, and “Snuggles”) has theorized from the beginning that her character, inexplicably Tony-attuned real estate agent Julianna Skiff, is actually an undercover FBI agent. While last night’s ep kinda blew this theory away (just slip that sawbuck under my door, Mickey), many suspect she’ll be a star witness in the ever-culminating RICO case against Tony when the series returns next January. (The theory goes: She’ll use Chris to get to Tony and destroy them both.)

Wish I had time to weigh the merits of these theories, but I’m hard at work on my Ghost Ship sequel, Ghost Bus. (The hook is, if the bus drops below 50 miles per hour, the ghosts will sign on to make Ghostbusters 3.)
