Everything about this episode was unrealistic from Oliver recovering miraculously to Felicity doing a quick 180 from last week...Felicity is being used to prop up every character and used to try to make us like the not so popular ones...I am sorry but that scene with Felicity and Laurel was the most random scene in my opinion...Yet again Diggle is useless except for driving a helicopter.
Well this was quite the episode. I agree that Vega should have had her hair down when she hit Peterson she would have been less recognizable to him so quickly. I am surprised that Abbott can head to D.C. and not have to take Jane with him. I mean after all I thought Jane had to be under his watch due to the agreement about Jane not being charged with Red John's murder. Even agent Fisher was allowed to leave and she was also supposed to be in charge of Jane. Not that I miss Agent Fisher, I don't, I was glad they got rid of her. So now Cho gets to be in charge of the team that Jane is on. Perhaps he would have liked a chance to think about that responsibility. I know he likes Jane and worked with him for many years but being the one in charge with Jane on the team is such a challenge, just ask Lisbon. I am very happy for Cho though. He does deserve it. Based on the scenes for next week I hope Cho gets a chance to be the boss. I wish they weren't killing off any of the team. I am disappointed in that idea but I am not going to assume any of them actually die because it wouldn't be the first time the promo has made me think certain things were going to happen that didn't. I was disappointed in Lisbon and Jane's final conversation in the fact that they made Lisbon seem stupid. She is a detective, right, and she can't figure out that Jane is afraid of losing her? She thought he was jealous of her work? Really?? He said he did what he did to protect her. When he had insomnia he said he was worried someone would get hurt. Come on, do the writers expect me to believe Lisbon couldn't figure it out. I am only speculating here based on dialogue from this episode but we heard that Abbott trusts Jane with his life and Lisbon said anyone of them could die any day. So I wonder if Abbott is going to die. I sure hope if someone dies it isn't because one of Jane's plans failed. However in interviews with Rockmond Dunbar he says the show's story line is left to be able to return and he would love to have another season so I am thinking he isn't the one going to die due to that information. It will probably be Vega or Wylie if any of them. I was thinking that maybe Jane was keeping his ring on until he and Lisbon told their coworkers that they were a couple but after his conversation with Pete I doubt that is the reason. He does need to take it off. If he is still married to Angela in his heart how can he really commit to Lisbon. I didn't like that Abbott said that Jane lied to him to Wylie. I do believe Jane fully intended to keep Abbott out of it but they were pressed for time and Wylie just couldn't think of any other way to quickly get the money. I didn't like Lisbon taking away the magic when Jane put in the right code for the alarm system. The "magic" is one of the things I love about Jane and I for one want to keep it. Can anyone refresh my memory as to which episode Jane had Cho pretend to kill someone? I just cannot recall that no matter how hard I try.

Just an awesome episode!
-Emily should definitely remain Emily. Anything else would be too disruptive.-I liked Jack as a cop. It gave him a purpose. What's he suppose to do now? Serve drinks for Nolan.-Not a big fan of either but if I have to choose then it's about time they get Emily together with Jack. Ben seems like more of a one-nighter.-Now that she's pregnant, Margaux is a wild care. Will she try to protect Jack or decide that if he's in on it he should go down too? Could go either way.-They all looked amazing, as usual.-Emily showing up on Ben's doorstep was very disappointing.-Loved Victoria holding court. No one does it like she does.
I liked the episode very much even though it feels too much like a kind of epiphany not to dread what is coming next (the promo for next week is terrifying!). What I liked a lot here, is Jane's getting his carney friends into it, so nice to see Pete, nice to see Jane opening up about "seeing someone" (I mean, really, seeing someone, "at the moment"??) and I was glad the ring was addressed. Jane's plan was really, really clever and could have gone wrong in so many ways, but it was fun to watch and entertaining. I really enjoyed the outing about the code of the security system, that was priceless ^^All in all, seeing them work as a team like that almost made me think of "old school" gangster movies, a little like Ocean's Eleven, with fun, class and thrills at the same time. I'm also relieved the writers had Jane and Lisbon talk about their current problem and not pretend everything had been swept under the rug. As much as I really like Lisbon, I was not a fan of her "don"t be jealous" line... I mean, can she honestly think it's jealousy? I mean it doesn't take a psychology degree to understand what is going on in Jane's mind... I have to admit I was a bit disappointed in that. I thought Simon Baker's acting was brilliant in the last scene, his silences, his eyes conveying so much emotion, that was masterful. Now, about next week... I can't believe we have only 4 episodes left, next week's is gonna be painful to watch, that is for sure. Ruritania, I hear you about hoping the death of one of the main characters is not going to be just an excuse of some sort but really being dealt with in a proper fashion. I don'ty really have doubts about this though, up to now I think the writing is excellent in season 7. I would indeed go for Vega being killed, even though the whole happy ending for Abbott might forestall a tragedy of some kind, and a kind of mirror-thing to the Jane/Lisbon couple. And as I've already said it, I think, to me this season is about the characters, their relations, putting even more into their personalities, and I absolutely love it.
Loved this episode! The interpersonal relationships this season have really made everything more intense and given the cases higher stakes. I can't believe they may kill someone off next week. I can't imagine who it will be...or maybe I just don't want to.
I really liked this episode even though I was a little disappointed by the gorilla too. Despite that I did not really understand the end. Why was Licoln taking the reaper injection? I thought he was fine like physically maybe a little upset because he was expelled from his own people. But prefering to live as a reaper....don´t really get it....
He HAD to take it to keep up the pretence. All the other reapers were taking them, it would've seemed a bit odd if he'd refused it, considering the injections are the one thing that Reapers crave... :(
Lachlan cannot be trusted as he so clearly demonstrated by the "flower incident." He's more involved in all of this than we know, but I'm confident all will be revealed at the proper time. Michael is desperate to win Jane back, but not so desperate that he refutes the sexual advances of his partner. Well, now he's in trouble with her. It's that whole " A woman scorned" thing. I believe Jane sincerely feels that she & Rafael will make it. I have concerns about that, but this show is such a pleasure to watch every week with its lighthearted banter, provided by the narrator & characters, that you just can't help but come back for more!
Rossi putting his gun down not only telegraphed that he wanted to kill the Unsub but that he wanted to be the last person the Unsub saw like how the Unsub was the last person Gideon saw. Since if it was only about killing the Unsub because he killed Gideon then Rossi could have shot and killed the Unsub as soon as he saw him since the Unsub was armed and had killed a a federal agent, no one would have questioned Rossi's actions had he shot when the Unsub had his back towards him. Rossi's actions were more of the 'you did this to my friend, I'm going to do the same to you' which was fun to watch.
I have to say, I was a bit disappointed by the gorilla. I had expected a bear or something similar. The gorilla was a bit anticlimatic. But besides that I liked the episode, though I do hope that everyone is getting back together soon. I prefer to watch the 100 with the remaining people of the 100 together. Not splitting up like what is happening now with Bellamy.
