Actually, the DNA test made perfect sense - saves a lot of emotional angst, which seems to be the specialty of the season.
Sakani is supposed to have Asperger's and Divya is in a clueless love-fueled haze, so not so hard to believe. But, if she answered the phone and went throught that Rafa, Rafa, Rafa routine one more time, I was going to reach into the tv and throw the damn phone away!
Also, given how short a time Divya and Rafa have known each other, and how precipitous their romance was, it's going to be hard to care that he "cheated" or even to think of it as cheating. maybe that will be a mechanism to allow Sakani to come to her emotional rescue (probably just another excuse for a miscue between them, though - he sees himself as knight in shining armor and new love interest; she sees him as supportive friend. Yawn!)
Did it bother anyone else how much Hank does without gloves on his patients, never mind without hand-washing? Or does it just drive me crazy because I work a
HA....I nearly called it. In my comment to the previous ep about how Paige's "mother" could have found her, I cited the widespread coverage of the election campaign, followed by efforts from a PI. Turns out her "mother" DID see the campaign coverage and did hire PIs--although they investigations apparently led nowhere (hence my use of "nearly).
As for this week's ep, I'm with the reviewer on several counts:
1. Despite what Boris cites as philanthropic motivies, Dmitry is a misanthropic thug who gets what he wants by waving around a gun.
2. The Divya / Jeremiah thing is getting painful to watch. What's worse, Divya's acting like a schoolgirl regarding Rafa which is very out of character for her. Given the trailers for the next ep, it looks like that's about to come to an end.
Meanwhile, if Christina called Hank to tell him about Dmitry, where was she? I didn't like her character and didn't mind that she wasn't featured, but this was a huge plot hole for me.
I honestly do not think this show is going to last much longer.
It's lacking character development......or at the very least is very slow moving.
I have to agree with the reviewer about Paige's mother storyline.
