Grimm Season 4 Episode 14 Review: Bad Luck

"Though I do have to wonder why the hunter bothered to kidnap the girl when he simply chopped off her brother's foot in place. Maybe he's a creeper, too? It's certainly possible that I missed something there, but it just didn't really seem well explained." There is some explanation for him waiting to chop off her foot. It was stated that the fresher the foot the better. It was also established when he made his first sale that he took pride in delivering a foot that was guarantied to work. Thus the closer to the turn over of a foot, the more powerful it would be. Cutting it off just before the sale would thus be extra insurance of a good result.

If the lights are centrally controlled the if you hack into the controlling computer you can cause the lights to do whatever you want (even show green in both directions as they did).

"The idea that the recording could not be transmitted made sense since it was so small and would have required a power source in order to transmit. It would have had to be much larger than an RF chip as well." If it transmitted, it would be detected by a routine security sweep for radio signals. Of course there was a transmitter in the US Seal at the US Consulate in Russia that was there for years before being discovered. "They at least acknowledged the need to swap it out at some point. The only explanation that would make sense is that it only managed to record a small amount of conversation after which it went dormant until it could be retrieved, recharged and divested of its information." Note that it may have stopped recording but it still was active since that was how it was finally found.

Notice the two kidnappers were left to drown (or at least their rescue was off screen) while the baby was being rescued from the water.

I spotted the killer as soon as they mentioned Eric having gotten the codes by romancing them from a woman. That raised red flags in my mind about the female cyber cop. As to flipping the lights so you have a clear path, the usual method is to use an infrared strobe to trip the signals (authorized emergency vehicles are equipped with them to allow them to get clearance to get the the green lights they need). The method that was used was more complex since it needed the vehicle to be real time tracked by GPS so its location was known to allow the correct lights to be manipulated to give it the needed Green Lights.

I was wondering if they were going to re-air the Backdoor Plot CSI Episode. It looks like they will.

"the Top Gun and Frozen movie references both of which are awesome flicks" What was the movie referenced right at the end with the plot quote? It was familiar but I did not remember the movie it was referencing.

The CC showed it as "Sahib" as you note.

NCIS Season 12 Episode 15 Review: Cabin Fever

I do not see the killing as being "In Cold Blood". They captured Sergei and could have just killed him. Instead they offered him a chance to surrender voluntarily, to escape, as getting a first shot at Fornell (admittedly with a gun were the first bullet in the clip was not chambered). He did not bother to check the gun but just tried to shoot it. He made his choice and thus was killed due to trying to use the gun. He thus rejected the opportunity to live. Cold Blood killing was what he did to Fornell's Wife.

"It is vague, as we don't know if the gun was truly loaded or not. Sergei didn't check it before deciding to try to shoot. It could have been also loaded and not chambered. again that is on Sergei for not checking." The type of gun was one where the slide does not lock in the open position when the clip is emptied by shooting the last round and will automatically chamber a round once a new loaded clip is inserted. Thus there is no way to know if the clip was empty or not. All we know is that there was not a chambered round (since you have to work the slide to chamber the first round when inserting the new clip). The main point was that he tried to shoot the gun (and it clicked) before he was finally shot. Thus it was a "good" kill since he "shot first", refused to surrender, and (as noted) did not check out the gun to see if it was loaded and a round chambered. If the gun was loaded with blanks or the firing pin was missing or shortened it would be a different story in respect to checking the gun since an inspection would not spot this type of thing.
