NCIS Season 12 Episode 15 Review: Cabin Fever

Query - Is Emily Fornell the correct age in this episode based on the prior appearance of the character? I seem to remember her as being a very young child when she was kidnapped from a party (if I remember the scenario correctly).

As soon as Sergei woke up with the gun in his lap, I yelled "Its Unloaded". As I noted, in another reply, Sergei had the chance to check the gun and did not. Thus he got what he deserved for failing to check. He compounded this error by not surrendering as well as "Shooting First".

He also failed by ignoring rule number 1 when handed an unknown gun - Check if the gun is loaded. He was given a fair chance to surrender and did not take it. Earlier this season the same type of situation was used on Criminal Minds in relation to Gideon's killer. I wonder what type of report Gibbs and Fornell filed - Vance seemed to not have bought the circumstances and knew that something was being omitted/suppressed.

Grimm Season 4 Episode 13 Review: Trial by Fire

Actresses Claire Coffee (Adalind) is pregnant in real life. The simplest solution is to work it into the plot in lieu of trying to hide her condition as is sometimes done. If I were writing the plot, I would use this plot development to tone down her quest for baby 1. So long as she has a child to bond with, going after the first one becomes less of a priority (although something that I would not expect her to forget about).

"Well, at least Alexander was willing to hear Nick out, which is more than can be said for the Wesen Council, De Groot notwithstanding." I need to rewatch the episodes where De Groot appears. It was my impression that he is an agent of the council not a member. His role is to act as a contact with the watchers. He seems to be willing to accept Alex's report and conclusion about Nick and his behavior. As I noted in a prior message, Nick is not being a traditional Grimm but more like a Council Trouble Shooter like Alex. I think many of his kills were in line with what Alex would have done in terms of upholding the Wesen Law. The hit order that the Council put out on him could be in part due to his potential run-in with the Bounty Hunter.

"I think the guy whipped himself because he was punishing himself as he knew the deal was bad." The guy was deeply religious and what he did was a traditional act when you do wrong. It is like sack cloth and ashes as a sign of penitence.

Not mentioned in the review is the revelation that Renard's investigator is reporting to Viktor which will be interesting once they return to the Baby Plot. I am waiting until next month when we hear more about Adalind's pregnancy. Once she gives birth it might help cool her quest for the first one. I wonder who the Father will turn out to be.

I agree with you about Red, his motives, and the FBI. Lizzie has to step back and look at the results of his actions aside from what he gains. After he is done, has a wrong been corrected or has be just used them to gain something with out paying for it by causing the wrong being corrected? So he got the pipeline, started the Blacklister on a path to control of the country (and eliminated some corruption there in the process) which may be of benefit later, and improved the lives of the residents. What was the net result? As to the Blacklister, how are his actions non-heroic as in playing Robin Hood?

Thank You for expanding on (and explaining) my comment. I have to rewatch the episode so see exactly what they said about the two B "Parents", Given that there was no suggestion that she was not the kid's mother, then her husband was ruled out as the father since he was also Type B and we explained why as well why her child could be Type A (ie; The real father was either Type A or AB).

For those who question the comment about the kid being Blood type A while both of the supposed parents were Blood type B meaning something was wrong, a Type B mother CAN have a Type A (or type O) child so long as the father is Type A (or Type O). What is called Type A or B means that ONE of the genes is for type A or B while the other can be Type O. Since each parent contributes one of their blood type genes to the child, in this case the mother passed on a Type O gene and thus the kid's blood type is Type A since the father passed on a Type A gene (he could have been AO or AA and have done this).
