And I have one more.  We've had a topic running before about making the FCR movie, and who we see as playing each character.   Doesn't have to be an actor, but who would you pick to play the main characters?

Short answer: yes for the moment. Long term answer.... the jury is out on that one, we could see it go either way!
Is the jury wearing pink?  It seems important, somehow....

I'd say the deciding factor was if they'd met his mother.

I remember Flynn talking to someone about clients needing to be supported by their families - otherwise, the client would just revert back to their old habits once they were away from the ranch.  I think it was the conversation where he said he'd like to meet the 'puppet master', referring to Phoenix's mother.  I don't see Ms. Loudon letting go of Phoenix any time soon, so I can't see how he'd wind up on the ranch.  He's certainly not a CEO, and probably can't even be classified as a brat needing rescue.

 Of course, that doesn't mean he might not show up in some other capacity in another book.  I'll leave that to R&R.

You inferred that perhaps Dale will have some contact with his siblings later in MEC. Can't wait! Does Flynn ever have any contact with his birth family or is that like flogging a dead horse?

I only ask because I wonder if Flynn's father would be proud of his success with a big ranch or sour grapes about his achievements

I'd imagine that Flynn's defection from the family would mean he is always "sour grapes" to his father.  Also, from what I can tell, he was never close to any of his brothers either.  Although, I sometimes wonder if Shay, who I believe was/is the youngest, might have chosen to take a little more after his older brother, Flynn, when Flynn left.
   I wonder about Flynn's mother as well.  Is she still alive?  Was she proud of him for essentially escaping, and did she hope that he made a better life for himself somewhere else?  Does she have any grandkids by her other sons, and if she does, do any of them remind her of Flynn?
   Also, I learn toward not expecting it to happen, but I still wonder if a nephew of Flynn's might show up one day.  He's been in the states approximately 17 years by this point-give or take.  Which means that if he has any nephews or nieces, then they'd be somewhere in there mid-to late teens at the oldest depending on when his brother(s) married and had children.

I'm not sure where to ask this question, but I've finished SBE for the gazillionth time and for the first time it occurred to me that Loic and Phoenix are around the same age: 23.

Could any two characters be more different? Though we know about Loic through others rather than as someone we've "met." But both were in a bad way on the mountain, and in a broad sense because of their own faulty decisions (Loic not taking oxygen, Phoenix being a %*%&&). Both needed rescuing which led to other people taking certain risks on their behalf. Loic, of course, is the height of independence and true ability. Loudon has no convictions, or any real talents that we see.

I just found these parallels and divergences fascinating. And I love the fact that regardless of how often I read this small series and big books, there's something new that makes me aha!

R&R you are brilliant.

After an emotional reread of Mustang Hill (I couldn't help it- a lot of my elderly old dears that I see every week and check on fell prey to the flu epidemic we had here) I picked up on Jasper telling Flynn that with 2 sensitives together that the effects were amplified. Totally missed this in previous rereads and then Ranger mentioned it here earlier about all of them feeling the train go by. I know that Dale never saw anything prior to FCR arrival but I wonder if Jasper has noticed an increase in his wwhhooo factor (as Riley would say!) since Dale arrived. Sometimes he can see what Dale sees and sometimes he can't. I don't know if he saw or sensed Roger, but he and Flynn certainly supported Dale through that.
