I wouldn't be surprised if Renard knew that his investigator was also reporting to Viktor. I am very, very curious to find out about Adalind's second child and who the father is. There aren't exactly a lot of candidates.

I got a huge kick out of Nick putting that water gun in his weapons cupboard with all the other deadly weapons. Next to the morning star and the axe, across from the elephant gun, is the deadly neon Super Soaker! I agree that Juliette is much more interesting now. As a new-made Hexen, she has powers that she has to figure out how to use and control properly, which gives Juliette her own identity separate from "Nick Burkhardt's girlfriend." Honestly, I can't wait to see where they take her!

The twin's name was Emily Anne Brody; the name of Zoe McLellan's character on JAG was Jennifer Coates.

"Agent Shoulderpads McBronzer"? I got a good laugh out of that.

As I mentioned in the review, I really do think that they're going to revisit Brody and the exploding petty officer in the future. And I love Patton Plame, too!

I think I understand what you're saying. There are four phenotypes for blood: A, B, AB, and O. Phenotype is controlled by two alleles, one inherited from each parent. Type O is recessive compared to A or B. Therefore, saying "Type A" might actually mean the person actually has either AA or AO blood genotype. "Type B" might be either BB or BO. A person with an O phenotype can only be an OO genotype, because O is recessive. For the terms of this episode's particular case, what you are saying means that it is perfectly possible for a Type B woman to give birth to a Type A child so long as the genotype of the woman in question is BO. The father of the child would have to be either AA, AO, or AB for the child to be Type A. AA + BO = 50% AO, 50% AB (Types A and AB)
AO + BO = 25% each AB, BO, AO, OO (Types AB, B, A, and O)
AB + BO = 50% AB, 25% AO, 25% BO (Types AB, A, and B) In terms of percentages, it's most *likely* that Dear Old Dad was AA for him to produce a Type A son with a Type B woman. Heh, never thought I'd be talking about this stuff for an NCIS: New Orleans episode!

Heh, I didn't think I was quite *that* harsh. As I mentioned in the review, B.D. Wong did a great job as Dr. Lin. The episode wasn't terrible, I just found it predictable. I guess that maybe I've watched too many cop shows and police procedurals over the years! :-)

I suspect that she's currently using her Hexen powers in purely instinctual fashion. It's possible that Henrietta will help Juliette bring her abilities under more conscious control.

That is an interesting question, I think - the same possibility floated around the NCIS mothership, too. She'd make a strong female lead opposite Scott Bakula, in my opinion, and the fact that she's already an established character would work in her advantage. On the other hand, Borin might end up overshadowing the other main characters with her presence.

Happily, they don't air at the same time, so you can enjoy twice the fun!
