Body of Proof Review: Prepping For the Apocalypse

by at . Comments

"Dark City" featured everyone floundering in the dark in more ways than one, as Megan and Tommy continued their complicated dance.

Speaking of which, was anyone else tired of hearing them both say, "It's complicated" or was it just me? This took place every time someone got to the point of explaining exactly why they were interrupted, leaving the audience frustrated by the lack of information.

Near Disaster

We know that Tommy cheated on Megan, but it's about time we learned more details about what was obviously a passionate but disastrous affair decades earlier. 

As much as I like Charlie, I was thrilled that he and Megan's late evening out was disrupted, even if it was by a plane crash. 

I'd like to see Charlie stick around, just not as Megan's love interest. Perhaps he could help pull Kate back from her descent into political success and personal catastrophe.  Adam was right. Every week we witness Kate's moral compass become more shaky. 

Back to the plane crash: I never suspected the flight attendant. Talk about poor judgment. She drugged the one armed person on the plane. Maybe she should have read up on the possible side effects of that medication she was taking.

And Megan was right. How desperate was her husband to retrieve those drugs if he sabotaged a generator, stole a body, butchered it and then shoved it into an elevator shaft?!? That couldn't have been quick. Didn't anyone notice him missing?

I was grateful to get some more time with Curtis and Ethan. His obsession with apocalypse prep was funny, but I still don't see how that could have helped him fix an industrial sized generator with cut wires.

When he hurt Ethan with the celebratory chest bump I had to laugh.

At Megan's home I was proud of Lacey for confronting her grandmother - and although Joan's speech about moving on sounded good, I'm still not convinced she's not hiding something about her husband's death.

But back to Megan and Tommy: It was satisfying to witness Megan realize how she's treated Tommy recently in this Body of Proof quote

Nothing like a near death experience to put things in perspective. As Megan stood there telling Charlie what she had planned, I knew it would never happen. Of course that didn't mean some naive little part of me didn't want to see Megan march right in and drag Tommy away from Riley. 

With only a couple of episodes left until Body of Proof season 3 finale, I figure they will make us wait for any type of relationship resolution. I've got my fingers crossed for a happy ending. These two characters deserve it.

Re: Megan not going in and talking to Tommy after she saw him with Riley. Megan wants to have her cake and eat it too. She went out with Charlie but does not want Tommy to go out with anyone else. Btw doe s anyone know why Megan wears RED all the time even red scrubs? I love red it's my fave color but I don't wear red ALL the time!

I wish they had paired Riley with Adam cause we know Riley is just a "placeholder" until Tommy and Megan eventually get back together. She is young beautiful seems to have a good personality it is a shame to 'waste" her on Tommy. maybe she and Charlie could console each other when Megan and Tommy reunite.

So many NCIS connections in this episode. To start with Lacey - Mary Mouser played Kelly Gibbs and Lorraine Toussaint (Deputy Dir Wolfson) - the guest stars: Sarah Jane Morris (CJ Barrett), Paul Telfer (Damon Werth), Jose Zniga (Dr. De La Casa) - same NCIS episode and Chris Johnson (PO James Morgan)

Ok great episode. Although it was kind of weird why Megan wouldnt go to Tommy at the end of the episode. Its not like he and Riley were kissing or anything just some banter. Seemed like an innocent enough scene and no way would it stop someone from talking to someone after she thought he was dead.

What's the deal with you and Detective Tommy Sullivan? Am I going to have to fight a duel with that guy every time I want to ask you out, or what?
