When Mr. Poe asks the children to wear blindfolds to the trial because he was instructed to take everything the court says literally, including "justice is blind", Sunny babbles "Scalia". This is a reference to former US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, a firm believer in the Textualist theory, which states that all laws -even old ones- must be taken literally, regardless of their original purpose or intend.

What can I say about this incredible, twisting show. As a fan of the movie, I went into this wanting it to be different and boy was I surprised. More books, more characters, many familiar actors popping up in different roles and humour, such wit.
Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf and his many disguises is sheer brilliance and at times making me want to hate him I find himself engrossed by his snappy lines and plots which never work out whilst the children outwit him every time.
This season has been incredibly twisting and I really don't want to see it end because its been brillant and I do plan on doing a re watch on favourite episodes definitely after I finish the last episode.
