First, I think the idea that North Country is coming back "in the spring" [if at all] is far-fetched. Second, even if we come back from Omicron in the most optimistic way possible, the spring is going nonetheless have a ton of pain. I still think we are going to see more closings, more hiatuses, etc., and real estate is not ever going to be tight. Third, I doubt TKAM is moving volitionally or, if it is, because its producer is involved in what will follow. (And, if one is hungry for something sinister, this may be where it lurks, but I am not going there.) Fourth, GFTNC is pretty clearly NOT making a volitional move. (I can see why Mockingbird might want to downsize and also why they might not want any of the other downsized alternatives, but I can't envision why North Country would, and I can't fathom where it might get the money to do so.) Fifth, I very much sign on to the close to tour analogy.
