I thought it interesting to learn about Julia's past. I believe her in her husband met in France during the war (WWII) when they were both in the OSS, that later became the CIA.
I also got a kick out of Justin Wilson. Who could forget his use of wine, or his method for judging "doneness" of pasta. He'd fish out a strand of spaghetti and fling it on the wall...if it stuck, it was done. I bet his wife *loved* having him in her kitchen.
