I really liked this episode.I love Casey and this episode made me love him even more. They way he handled his soon to be ex bother in law was fantastic! When he went to confront him on his date, I laughed. I knew he was going to take a dinner role and I laughed.I was so excited that Ruzek was in this episode. Then to get two scenes with my two favorite guys: Casey and Ruzek as awesome! Don't get me wrong I like Severide and Halstead but Casey and Ruzek are my favorites!Severide may be showing up to work hungover and planning trips to Vegas but he has not let it affect his job when is on the job. He came through during the elevator rescue.I can see both Hermann and Dawson's side to what is happening at 51. I liked their scene at the firehouse when they confronted each other and then at the end when he told her he is going to make a firefighter out of her and they hugged...I got teary eyed.Lastly, I find myself not liking Brett, something about her is annoying. Not to mention that is drives me crazy when she wears her hair back and there are those two strands she leaves out! Like seriously how does the shows hair stylist think that is a good look?Severide is getting a love interest and it is not Brett. I do not want to have her hook up with Halstead over at PD either.
This episode yields several series decisions. 1. It appears Agent Pendergast is gone. When Borin brings it up with Tony, he says it is over. Um, when did it begin? 2. Gary intends to continue to hard-sell His Girl. Agent Borin tells Bishop she is doing fine as a probie even though she failed the test. I wonder how many viewers were hoping that Bishop was going to be eliminated when she was caught from behind by a masked man with a knife at her throat? That wishful thinking aside, Wickersham is not a very good actress and she continues to show it with each episode. 3. Agent Borin is not going to be a part of the NCIS team. When she tells Tony he would have a part on her team, he says he could be her number 2, only to be told he could be a number 3. Borin is a senior agent and would not join Gibbs' team as a number 2, 3 or 4. The scene which shows McGee and Bishop going to the Joe Willis apartment shows that this team-up is not quite ready for prime time. After announcing themselves at the door, they find the door unlocked and enter "without their weapons drawn".
Dean is NOT cured. I don't see why people keep saying that. A symptom of the disease he has has been treated, thats all. It's like someone with a severe cold. They may take something to stop the runny nose, but they still have the cold. Dean still has the Mark, and as long as he has it, he will not be cured. The Mark is still going to want to be fed, as Crowley said. And anyone who tries to stop Dean from feeding will pay a heavy price. And he will stop at nothing to get the Blade back. So to everyone who wants to see more of the brutal, nasty, evil, don't care about anyone but himself Dean, don't worry. You will see a lot more of that. As for the mysterious woman at the end, she might be this seasons Big Bad. A super powerful witch.
Will Michonne get her sword back?
I really like the show! in fact, i am going to have to go watch this episode tonight....yup, i spoiled myself....the thing is... i really want to know who harrison wells is. with the pictures of zoom coming out, it seems like the actor playing him is a bit more stocky than the good doc. so no, i agree with you carissa, i do not think he is zoom...harrison that is. that and it seems we will be seeing zoom a lot earlier in the season and with a person like wells, his seems to be the type to keep him shrouded in mystery as long as possible. that said, i have never heard of rip hunter, but as for booster....i don't see him being that hero either. booster was established as one who was out for himself. sure he helped when he could, but it was more about the fame for him and harrison just hasn't been exuding that. also, from canon, we know that wally west did time travel so it could be him or even bart allen. but as we havent seen harrison move fast, other than a stabbing, there is no telling if he has super speed or not. i just wanted to throw those two name out there as at least one of them, wally west, did in fact travel through time. i love caitlin and the actress who plays her and i cannot wait to see them develop her more. and then there is felicity and her return to central city. though i think what is keeping me tuned into this show is in fact dr. wells. i think they have dropped a huge mystery as to who this man is and it is what really keeps me watching. the rest of the show is great, but harrison....is an enigma!
Really disappointed they cured Dean so early in the season. I wanted it to last at least to half way point. The idea of Crowley and Dean "howling at the Moon" at the end of last season promised so much. All we got was a few scenes of Dean drinking and fooling around with a woman, then Crowley gives him up to Sam and hey presto CURED. Hopefully he isn't fully cured and his demon side will rear its head at some point, or Crowley knows something we don't!! Might give it a miss for a couple of weeks until I get over the disappointment of the outcome of this,admittedly good episode.
The character's name was "Rance" not "Lance." I love Fornell, so I was very disappointed he wasn't used more. I like Wade and her relationship with Pride. But I really don't like Sebastian, her assistant. The weird and quirky geek is way overdone on these shows. I wish they'd kept the original assistant, who was normal, smart and played keyboard to unwind.
I actually agree with AZGurl that they wasted an incredible plot line in "rescuing" Deanmon so early on and I felt cheated at the end of this episode - kind of "... and that's it?" But than again, Dean returned from hell and his nightmares lasted for perhaps 2 episodes, his year in Purgatory was not dealt with much differently and I really doubt that the "Mark of Cain" will cause more problems. It's a shame 'cause Demon Dean was incredible - soulless Sam we could enjoy for most of Season 6 ... is it only me or is there some unbalanced distribution of plot development? Crowley in his throne room, bored to death that was a nice twist and I enjoyed the short meeting of Hannah and Crowley. However, the Angels are getting tiresome. At least Gabriel and Balthazar had some spirit, I do hope they are allowed to return (and I personally don't need anymore of Metatron, but that's just me ;-) ).
Not sure many people caught it, but there was a brilliant subtle nudge from Jake at Jameis Winston. I can't remember the exact line, but it was something like "I didn't go to the Florida State communications school for nothing." Brilliant.
The case was weak and predictable but it was a nice change of pace to have the majority of the episode take place on a cargo ship. The character interactions were pretty fun to watch though. It was pretty hilarious when Bishop told Tony that she'd heard that he and Agent Pendergast were "knocking boots". I love that Tony has taken Bishop under his wing, the fact that Gibbs never follows anyone else's directions and that McGee was left in charge. I was nice to see McGee being confident rather than acting like a Nervous Nelly. This was probably the weakest episode of the season so far but still enjoyable.
