NCIS Season 12 Episode 8 Review: Semper Fortis

A few things...
-
I'm sorry, but assisting someone who is in imminent threat of dying, is criminal? You guys seriously need a law change. Anyone with basic first aid in my country can do a tracheotomy with a pen tube, in field, in an emergency, whether it's a war zone or an accident at home (we teach that here). EVERYONE in our military has basic first aid training, so I call BS on your laws, and you should try to do something about it. Just sayin'.

We have Good Samaritan laws here, don't you?
-
Gibbs and Carey? Interesting... I think I could like it... If done right...
-
I like Abby and Bert :) Hope the roses have won a reprieve!

I have no words to describe a system that would allow an elected official to head local (or any other) law enforcement. Glad to see the sheriff admitted that he could be wrong (even though he technically wasn't) because he "knew" the people of the area, and was instead focused on crucifying the only person who tried, and succeeded in, doing the right thing. He didn't even try to follow up on witness statements identifying another vehicle being present, and a possible cause of, the accident. Not being a US citizen, I don't get how this system is not corrupt, or at least biased. I really... just don't get it...
-
Back to Abby... Could the writers please let her evolve, just a little bit? Seriously, a list of must do's and set timeframes? For someone who has always separated science from the heart, it sure feels like a long term and ill conceived experiment to me. Once again I call BS with the "If it's right it won't matter" (paraphrasing, or course) and call lazy writing and character development. Anyone who has been, is, or will be, in a relationship can tell you that everything is never completely perfect, and anyone who claims that it is, is a big fat liar.

Rant over... Sorry but this episode really p..... me off, I mean, annoyed me...

The Vampire Diaries Set Scoop: Ian Somerhalder on Bamon, Boys & Beyond

Bamon is the HEART of TVD currently & it's obvious by the increase in ratings of last week's episode 06x08 w/Damon & Ms. Cuddles. Ms. Cuddles in the previews with her caretaker, Damon Salvatore truly dominated this episode. The thrill of finding Bonnie put me on the edge of my seat which hasn't happened in a long time with TVD! Elena's jealousy of Bonnie & Damon together all that time did too...😄 Plec & Crew should wake up to the fact of Bamon as Lovers before the show is ruined with all the catering to fans of other ships that are no longer of interest nor beneficial to TVD's characters! 👊👊👊

Hart of Dixie Discussion & Speculation: Where Are We Headed?

At first I was cheering so much for Zoe stick with George, they seemed so perfect togheter then I realized that they would be a boring couple, they like each other but the chemistry is one hundred percent Zade. I just hated Joel, he's boring and there's nothing on him that makes me like him, he isn't even cute or romantic, just seemed to me like a guy who liked the adventure in a small town southern way to live. Maybe Zade is all the series about, she left her confort zone in NYC to find a true love on a guy she never thought she would fall for, there's a lot of Georgie's in Manhattan but Wade is one of a kind and I think they are perfect for each other.

Chicago Fire Season 3 Episode 8 Review: Chopper

Okay, straight up, I do NOT want to see Dawson back with Mills. Okay, yeah, all the Mawson or Dills fans will be cry baby whiny butts, but come on. That would cause entirely too much tension in the firehouse. The only way, and I mean the ONLY way that something like that would work, is if they already planned on writing Casey out of the show. I'm sorry, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. Plus, I never wanted to see Dawson and Mills together in the first place. I've been a Dawsey or Cason fan from the get go. All that have to do is ride out the rest of this season, then Dawson and Casey can get married no issue. I will say that if they put Mills and Dawson back together, I'm dropping off of the show, no ifs, ands, or buts. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a show that tries to mix things up, but for some reason, I can't get behind Mills and Dawson being an item. I just can't.

Good evening Winter, Golfingdocp, Sojourner, and our other fellow posters,
I wanted to point some things that had been bothering me and I had questions about, so here I go. This is for episode one. 1. I missed it the first time around, but I finally heard Grace tell the job interviewer in the first episode, that she turned down the Fulbright scholarship to study in Florence when she learned that she was pregnant. I realize the significance of that because I hadn't quite understood why Neil in the last episode told Grace that he wanted to go to Italy 20 years ago. I also now suspect that Neil may have been planning to accompany Grace abroad while she studied under the Fulbright Program. I had incorrectly assumed that Grace had put aside the scholarship to marry Neil. Now I see that she had to turn down the scholarship because she was pregnant. I think that is an important distinction because I always thought Grace's decision to put her dreams on hold were similar to that of my wife. I think that also says a lot about Neil that he was very supportive of Grace in the beginning of their relationship. Did everyone know this? Does it make a different in your assessment of Neil and Grace? I wonder if that situation explains why Grace told Neil screw you in the ninth episode? 2. I think that a person's perception of themselves, regardless of if it is accurate or not, says a lot about who they think they are. In the first episode, Grace tells Stephanie that she realized that she has her mom's life ( to which Stephanie responds "ell" which is another thing that is an issue). Grace comments that she once considered herself an artist but that she's turned into Neil's wife. Regardless of whether her self perception is accurate, it's clear that Grace sees herself at that point as an extension of Neil rather than her own person. That's a sign of low self esteem. I wonder what type of life Grace and Stephanie's parents had. I kind of assume that their mother was unhappy. I also found it interesting that they never say anything about their father. I wonder if he was present in their lives? Could the unhappy upbringing explain why both Grace and Stephanie are dysfunctional? 3. I wondered whether Grace was concerned that Neil was having an affair from the first episode. When Neil informed Grace that he had to go into the office because of an emergency (he was going to meet Mallory), she had a strange reaction/stare that made me think she was wondering if Neil was having an affair (after all she was in the middle of her affair) and might have been concerned that Neil saying he had to go into the office that late was an excuse to allow him to meet someone (and actually that was the case). Grace then calls Neil early in the morning (while he is sleeping next to Mallory) and asked where he was? Grace further states that he hadn't responded to her texts. When Neil says that he'll have to go out of town again, Grace asked who was the new client. I had a feeling that they way she asked it, that Grace felt that Neil was having an affair and was saying he would be out of town to give him an opportunity to meet with the other woman. Grace asked him who the new client was in order to see how he would respond and if the answer would confirm her suspicion. That would explain why Grace went to Neil's office, to see if he was working (or cheating on her) only to find out that he quit. That would also explain why she asked Neil at the pool "what about us are we going to work out". 4. Grace expressed at that point that she was afraid because she didn't know what was happening to them. Is what Neil did in episode one ( freaking out in the plane and quitting his job) the beginning of a wake up call for Grace? Is that why she makes the decision to try to break off with Simon shortly after that? Is the fact that she is also worried that Neil may be having an affair the catalyst for her decision to end the affair?

Great hunting. The first find is totally new to me. It does reinforce my belief that Neil has been actually more supportive of Grace than we have been giving him credit for. It is possible that the decision to not go for the Fulbright was entirely her decision and that she has been suppressing doubts about it every since. Actually, neither Anika nor Stephanie, has ever blamed Neil for her not advancing her career. In a sense, Grace might have been responsible for this portion of her unhappiness.
The second find, was one of the instances where I suspected a bit of jealousy on Grace's part. Grace had just spent the previous afternoon screwing Simon's brains out, and may be feeling a bit of guilt. Remember, that Neil showed up at Anika's recital unexpectedly, and had proved to be highly supportive of his daughter. Grace was still wearing the soiled garments from her tryst. Neil made the excuse that he had to go back to the office after the recital. Neil working at the office overnight might have been a new phenomenon. He might have worked long hours but never overnight. Neil might also have broken a pattern when he suddenly did not return her text messages. That surely would have made her worried or suspicious. Grace then went to Neil's office, something she had never done before. She found out that he quit his job the day before, and brought his possessions home. Something else actually bothers me about these two days in the storyline. Neil had been texting Grace after his airplane meltdown. She failed to reply. He then called her office to find her and was given the address of the home she was showing. Why did Grace not check her phone and realize that her husband had been trying to reach her? Maybe, she checked her phone late at night and realized that Neil had been trying to reach her, and was now responding to his texts when she called his office at night. She might have had an intuitive feeling that something was wrong, because of what she had done the previous day or possibly that something bad had happened to Neil. She might have been worried that her failure to answer Neil's texts may have had something to do with his staying away all night. In the morning, when she finally reaches him by phone she is clearly suspicious. Her suspicions are confirmed when she goes to the office. When learning that her husband quit, I would be shocked if she did not ask someone in the office why he quit. If she did not, why did she not question him when he got home? The airplane incident was news to her until Stephanie showed it to her online. This shows Grace to be callously uninterested in her husband's motivations. Grace actually looks like the detached spouse. She had not visited his new employer for the 5 years he had worked at the location. She did not ask why he quit, and where was he when he was not at the office? These show detachment. If she suspects that he may be cheating it may be a reflection of guilt for her activities. The scene at the pool when she asks if they will make it, she has been cheating for 6 months, and Neil has suddenly quit his employment and lied to her about his actions. She may subconsciously be worried that her adultery has been found out, and that Neil is up to something. Then there is the scene by the pool with Anika and Neil, when Grace goes into the house and texts Simon about getting together. The family had just had a nice moment together, and Simon is whom she reaches out to. Neil finds this out, because he has Simons phone and it rings in his jacket by the pool. Grace must have gotten comfortable that Neil was unaware of her affair, and her romantic needs had to be satisfied. It is interesting that she turned to Simon to satisfy her desires, while her husband was clearly in an affectionate mood by the pool. Neil later uses the out of town new client lie, to meet up with Adriana for the first time. Grace is not suspicious? Why? Maybe, she just doesn't care. Neil meets the hedge fund owner while on the date with Adriana, and that later prompts his boss to ask him to return to the fold as a Vice-President. Still Grace had no questions for Neil. I totally believe that Grace was the person detached from the marriage. Neil, for all his issues, still wanted to include Grace in everything. It was Grace and her issues that had been destroying the marriage. Her affair just strengthened her resolve that she could go on without Neil. I believe that after Stephanie showed Grace the internet video of Neil freaking out, she dismissed the notion of an affair. She probably figured that Neil needed some time alone to find his own thoughts.
I really have no clue why Grace wants to end her affair, unless it is due to the fact that Neil has become totally attentive to her every desire. Maybe she has the need for her husband to be totally engrossed in everything Grace. Yet Grace openly flits with Dylan, and sort of violates the husband-wife fidelity contract when she poses nude. These are not the actions of a woman worried about her marriage. When Grace and Neil have the sex moment in the bar bathroom, she was relieved that it was not about the affair. I believe, that it was this incident that was responsible for her breaking off the affair with Simon. She just dodged a big bullet.

Avid Private Practice fan and have loved Amelia joining the cast!! Did they ever say what happened to her and James?! Last I heard they were engaged and then it slowly puttered out of the show?! Any ideas?! Loved the winter finale and little shout outs and flash backs!!

Here's to hoping Fitz dies and Mellie for some reason ends up as the President. That would be a serious upturn for the show. Mellie as President would reel me back in as a loyal watcher. I fast-forward the scenes with Fitz now and realized that I'm not missing any of the plot. He seriously does not make any of the major decisions that moves the story along. Other than arresting Jake he has not contributed much.

@ GeekyDiorGirl

That sentence right there shows geekydiorgirl you have the intelligence of a 5 year old and could not have possibly watched this show from the beginning. You need to think outside what writers want you to see. For one there is absolutely nothing that mellie has done that would even remotely make her president material everything blows up in her face!!!

@ jjenner

Exactly JJenner!! Fitz is one of the characters that moves the plot along. We will most defitnitely see him moving it along now that Liv has been kidnapped cause she is his heart. He will be wrapped all up in the plot of that story. You know, when I see comments swimming in anti-Fitz hate, I usually ignore them and not even respond. I don't care for Jake but you can't find 1 ignorant comment from me, swirled in anti-Jake hate. If you don't have the maturity for the show, GeekyDiorGirl, please just look at something else on your Thursday evenings.
