Ned Dorneget, Mike Franks, Jenny Shepard, Paula Cassidy, Kate Todd, Chris Pacci. What do these people have in common besides being dead? All of the characters in this group at the end of this episode were fallen NCIS agents who killed in the line of duty (with special dispensation for Franks, who was retired when he was killed). Theoretically, Langer should have been there. He was on Gibbs's team before even DiNozzo was. He made his start at NCIS before going to the FBI before transferring back to NCIS (and back to Gibbs's team) to meet untimely and definitely unjust demise at the hands of the traitorous Agent Lee. Of course, by my standard, they should have included Lara Macy (killed by the Reynosa Cartel, remember them?), most certainly; likely Levin (Alimi Ballard's character on EJ Barrett's team); and possibly Lee, though her betrayal of the agency (and murder of the aforementioned unfortunate Langer) should discount her.
Are SIM cards all compatible across all types of phones? Like, could I take a SIM card from an iPhone and stick it in a Samsung Galaxy? If not, Sonja was *still* lucky that it was compatible!
I absolutely love that Pacci was there in that moment. He didn't appear in too many episodes (I think it was only two before his untimely murder), but he still managed to make quite an impact. Gibbs referred to him as a friend. And they even brought Pacci back in the "Baltimore" flashback episode! That moment on the tarmac was an excellent touch.
Hopefully, we'll find the answers to the Renard's condition next week! (Just in time for the Ultimate Showdown in the season finale the following week!)
For some reason, I didn't even think of Renard being the Ripper, but it would certainly explain a few things, particularly Henrietta's murder. I agree, Claire Coffee was on fire this week! Her comic timing is spot-on. Regarding Kelly Burkhardt, I wouldn't count her out just yet! She's a canny Grimm, and Prince Ken Doll isn't as bright as he thinks he is. Plus, Truble's on her way, too.
Clayne Crawford has played Cade in all three of his appearances so far. :-)
Ghost brides were the topic of an episode of Numb3rs (Season 5 Episode 13, "Trouble in Chinatown," to be specific.) It was also addressed in Bones Season 2 Episode 16, "The Boneless Bride in the River."
Poor Savannah. She had the misfortune to be in a romantic relationship with a major character on a network television show. Bonus points for the fact that it's a crime show, and her chances of surviving were dwindling by the moment. It's become cliche by this point. Sigh. And I liked Savannah, too.
Some of the weapons would likely still be partially intact if they're made of metal.
That was a fantastic line, wasn't it? I wish I'd managed to fit in into my review somewhere. And Sasha Roiz's deadpan delivery just hit the mark, as you pointed out! I really think that the writers need to sit down and reread their series "bible" about what happened when and to whom, because they are really, really confusing things right now. Regarding the cases, I feel that the writers could put more effort into making the cases themselves more interesting and less blatantly obvious. Though, as you mentioned, sometimes it's more about the characters than the cases themselves. Unfortunately, they can't seem to decide if Grimm is a Monster of the Week show or a character-driven arc show.
