I found this to be solid second episode for a new series. Compared to NCIS: LA that followed this was far better. Hopefully the upcoming episodes will provide opportunities for appropriate character development and not force something on us. The insight into Walter's sister was consistent with the storyline. And I liked Paige's new role but please don't rush into a romantic involvement. the inclusion of Paige's son was also handled well.
I agree with the reviewer,overall a good hour of television the only complaint is with the Kensi and Talia relationship. Talia from day 1 has been portrayed as arrogant, smug and extremely unprofessional. She was downright mean to Kensi and having them become buddies and gang up on Deeks who had done nothing but his job was offensive. I hope we never see Talia again.
Stana Katic gave an amazing performance. The episode was intense. I was wondering though if Nathan fillion didn't have a problem about not being in the first 45 MINUTES of the shows season opener. I know the ep was about him but he wasn't in it until the end. and I kept waiting for some scenes with him.
Watching Stana Katic in her portrayal of Beckett is real joy each episode. She nails the emotions every time and is so invested. I have rewatched a few times and each time it made me more intrigued as to what will happen, so I am all in.
We all know gemma is going to die but who will be the person to do it?? ABEL. Watch & see. He is going to hear (how he always hears) that grandma killed mommy, find a gun (so many always around lol) and kill her. THIS will be the tragic end. Tara wanted to avoid this, Jax said save our sons, he's Jaxs kid..it's going to be all sorts of tragic & ironic things. His face when he watched Nero beating that man..he's SO quiet but watches it all..then he asked does daddy do bad things? I'm telling you...Abel will kill Gemma. This is just my guess.
This may just be me, but I feel like a recurring event in this show is Castle constantly having to prove his feelings and good character to Beckett and the others at the precinct. Aside from Always, Castle has always had to make the leaps of faith to form the relationship, and even in that episode he had to put everything on the line before Beckett would admit any feelings in return. I think that was what made it so hard for me to watch this episode. Yet again he has to fight to prove that he actually cares as Espo, Ryan, and even Beckett doubt him. I would feel better if someone in his family defended him or if his friends finally acknowledged, to him, all he's done in the past.
1. Fave scene Karev stopping Bailey thinking she's going to manipulating the board by saying he has Cris shares and her board seat. He seems to have his peads job back.3. Karev! Bailey's ego is getting OTT. Let karev continue to grow up. I don't think any of the married couples will vote for the same candidate.4. I'm waiting for Derek to be asked to in the brain research again. But does the fact he's staying mean he's stepping back so Mer can get on with her research
I agree with the reviewer...not an "edge of your seat" episode, but an OK resolution to a potentially disastrous situation. Loved LOVED LUUUUUUURVED Hetty's "Don't HANDLE me Owen!!!!!"; then again, I adore any occasion when Hetty verbally tags Granger. OK...a girlfight....over Deeks? Really? Are horny 15-year-old boys writing the scripts now? Or maybe single pervy Howard Wolowitz from "The Big Bang Theory"? That was unnecessary...and stupid.
I agree about talia. That was a stupid conclusion.
So far this season isn't winning me over. I hate Kaley's hair cut and it's all I focus on when the show is on. I did chuckle more than in the first 2 episodes, I think the best line came from Amy: "I will let you count this as 2 dates, they are a lot of work." I don't know maybe they need new writers, just seems like it's the same old stuff over and over.
