    I notice this post gets popular every time this episode is scheduled to air. And I’m totally not happy with the chord progression of “reeling…stranger…dove.” I know it’s not right but I can’t find anything that sounds better. I’m sure the Em comes right before the C as kind of a connecting chord but what goes between A7 and Em after a Bm and a G?

    The progression for the whole line (starting with “But what’s”) is:

    Em Em/D# Em/D A7

    The bass run, BTW, that occurs before this line is D D# (which leads to the Em). Also, I’m not hearing the Dsus2 chords in the recording. If anything, the piano is occasionally playing a Dsus4.

      YES! THank you! It was driving me nuts relistening to it and even trying to ID chords from the lead guitar riffs on the opening credits of the episode. I agree that I don’t *hear* the Dsus2 but at the same time, I think that without the piano, the guitar needs to express what would otherwise be only implied. Hence the Dsus2.
