I just got caught up (watched all 10 seasons - a lot of darkness, haha). What really stood out to me about the unsub was the contrast between how neat and tidy the upstairs was and the crookedness of the paintings on the wall into the basement - that was a cool touch. Also, I think the thing they weren't getting right was the intensity or "sincerity" of their screams. But seriously, as a parent, I don't helicopter at all but I would never let my daughter out at a mall with boys I've never met. Parenting 101 fail :) On a side note, I dislike the immediacy of the star voting system, especially on my phone. One wrong touch of a button and it's 3 stars instead of 4. Perhaps there's a way to require a submit before actually registering your vote? Just a thought :)

I love this show and I really do hope it gets renewed. I love the bits of history they throw around and Henry's being a stickler for detail (murder vs. assassination, etc.). One of my favorite lines was the throw away at the beginning where Jo mentioned that Henry would have had to live 6 lives to know all that he does, and he replied "No, just one long one." It is little things like that that make me look forward to Henry opening up and trusting Jo with his secret.
I can't believe there aren't any comments yet. This was an amazing episode. I loved the set-up, the story development, even the predictable but still creepy abduction of Kate at the end. The profiling by Castle was very good, and you could see when he struck a nerve and threw Tyson off his game just enough. Mosley's acting was superb. Oh, and that wink at the end. Anyway, next week's promo looks really good. I can't wait, and it's been quite a while since I could say I can't wait until the following week for any of my favorites lately.
Um, no. He killed Pedro Hernandez in 91/92, the man who had his daughter and wife killed. Sergei's tie to Gibbs (however loose it may be) is more than likely that he and Ari share a mother (as it was dropped that his mother was likely Palestinian) and he wants revenge because he's the last person on the planet to not know that Gibbs didn't kill Ari, rather Ziva did (even though it's not clear how everyone found out because it was supposed to be this big secret, they just apparently did!).
I am definitely on Dawson's side on this one. She did make mistakes, but she apologized for them. For Casey, this seems to come down to a matter of pride and how he is viewed by the guys at the house and the higher ups. Not that those aren't important, but he's being a jerk to Dawson by not talking to her. As for Mills, I keep hoping that the show won't be so predictable as to have Lullo come after him. Wouldn't it be a neat twist to have it be due to his side job with the other guy (whose name escapes me at the moment?) He was messed up with some horrible dudes and that one guy a few episodes back gave Mills a good hard look. Just a thought...
I definitely saw the pregnancy angle coming as soon as the exhumation was approved by the judge. But given the revelation of the miscarriages, that was just one extra slap in the face last night. My theory is that Bonnie could be the murderer. I have several reasons for thinking that. First, we have seen the least about her and her entanglements, other than her longing for Sam. Secondly, her longing for Sam (and his definite knowing of it and potentially even encouraging it!) could have made her snap given that he went after someone else. Finally, her seeming loyalty to Annalise could have played a factor. But the beauty is that there are so many possibilities that make sense and we really don't have a clue. Maybe it was Oliver... ;)
I found this particular episode sort of predictable in the fact that the friends killed someone in the past. The twist came with who killed Tyler in the here and now. It was good that they followed through on Jo's struggles from last weeks' actions, but it was a bit predictable. I did like the solution at the end with the shooting range, not some stereotypical women talking it out stuff. The flashbacks are all helping to set a stage, not just for Henry, but for Abe as well. I still would like to learn more about Jo. And I didn't miss the annoying detective that helped Jo in the past, but I would miss Lucas. He adds flair and the actor is better utilized here than he was in Bones. All in all, I want this show to continue, and I really hope the ratings pick up after baseball is over.
I, too, found the case intriguing and disturbing, and the twist I didn't see coming. I also stopped short with the mother being the abuser, and I like being surprised. I will start off with a disclaimer - I liked Ziva and I shipped Tiva. I was highly dissatisfied with the way they wrote her out and the ending they left us with. That being said, I was glad that someone other than loyal Tony fans understood that his serial dating again was probably a cover and called him on it. I wish it had been addressed earlier than a year later, but oh well. I didn't mind the conversation or his admitting that he wasn't over her. My only wish is he hadn't thrown around that "friend" word. I don't kiss my friends like that kiss on the Tarmac... I didn't mind the agent from the past. Sooooo much better than the FBI agent from two weeks ago. She had depth, fire, intelligence, grit. And her understanding of Tony goes deeper than face value that everyone else judges him by. She could see that something else was going on in him, even pegging that he had found what he was looking for when he left her (in an eerily similar fashion as Ziva left him...coincidence? I don't think so.) DiNozzo - super hot in the tux...mmmm. And I haven't loved Bishop's character, but I did laugh at the kicking the door down scene. Tonight she was written the least irritatingly that she has been since her introduction. There was balance tonight to all the characters and the interactions were much better than some of the more forced interactions of weeks (and months) past. I would agree Doug that this has been one of the better installments in quite a long while.
This was a decent episode. I think it should be required watching for some of the younger people out there - your life (figuratively AND literally!) is fair game once you put it on the internet. I, for one, was rather creeped out by the 3D printer. I think of all the good uses that could have, but with technology the way it is, I don't doubt that you could make a key from a picture (furiously checking my online images for keys...). Anyway, this was a decent case and crime-of-the-week episode until the "big" ones we've been waiting for. My pet peeve (and you pointed it out) - the dichotomy of rugged and capable and suave versus the bungling they showed at the end. I wish it weren't so extreme. I hate how they use that to make him the comedic fool, which I think takes it too far and detracts from the character and, in this case, the episode overall. Just my $0.02.
I was thinking that if he lived he wouldn't have been the same. I think he might heal like a normal person, although that's just a guess. I think more than anything the other man was worried that Henry would die in front of Jo or, worse yet, at the hospital, and more people would see what happens to him. Also, with Henry injured, there wouldn't have been a foil for the cat and mouse game to continue. I also liked Henry figuring out that Abe may be in danger. I really enjoy this show and I, too, hope that it can continue. I am intrigued as to how involved Henry can get and continue to be in danger around Jo without her finding out his secret. Also with the wealth of knowledge and insight he has accumulated, one of these times (if she hasn't already) Jo is going to get suspicious as to how he has all this knowledge about EVERYTHING :)
