Bit of Land in the Seine – The New York Times

The key to Ms. Kinnels theme is to recognize the homonym in the revealer, SPRING ROLLS. The four theme entries are actually spring roles, in that each of the film or television roles contains the name of a month of spring.

For example, at 17A, the answer to the clue Laura Dern, in Little Women is MARMEE MARCH, with March being the first month (mostly) of spring.

Similarly, at 28A, the answer to the clue Sarah Drew, on Greys Anatomy is APRIL KEPNER, with April being the second month of spring.

Now you spring forth and solve the other two.

S.H.I.E.L.D. is about sacrifice, not for you or me, but for the greater good. 35-A

Im going to create my own S.H.I.E.L.D. and call it the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. 28-A shouting, All right, it is your job to save their lives would sort of fit right in. Im deeply grateful for all the medical professionals and first responders who dont need 28-A to tell them this.

Ill never be nearly as put-together as 45-ACROSS, but Ill do my best to look presentable as I connect with my students by teleconferencing for the first time on the day this puzzle is published. (Shout out to all the students, teachers and school administrators who are learning so much so quickly about how to teach and learn in unfamiliar circumstances).

And, finally, a bit of advice for our times from 17-A: Have regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well.

Almost finished solving but need a bit more help? Weve got you covered.
