It's interesting how much Ralph loves his son. You believe him when he said he would die for him. As irrational Dixon can be, he is also patient. It showed that he was still young, and learning from his father. Katherine has been given small scenes in the past, and it was refreshing having her showcase her powerful skills here. She cares for Ralph, but she was also objective in her approach. When she needed to be firm, she was, but she was also tough in Ralph's favor when that time came. Katherine is one of my favorite characters. Whatever Lamb throws her way, she is still strong and confident. This series always makes you crave for more time.
Ironically, it's more practical than The Bachelor. The show basically said it, 'this has been done before, but let's have something that works or lasts'. It's a better catch. The girls have professional mentors that have had success in the business of love. However impossible it may seem to believe these sometimes knock off romance themed reality series, Ready for Love is actually more authentic. The views were probably based on those who rolled their eyes and chose not to look at 'another one of those', but I prefer to give shows chances. If it sucked, I would have said it and dumped it, but these people are just ordinary, beyond the cheese factor. The mentors give these girls guidance and says the things others would not tell you. It's worth a try.
Almost forgot. Loving the new opening for the Vegas theme.
Welcome back! My Vegas is back with a sweet edge. Mia is fierce and it may take a while before she lets her guard down again with Jack, if she does at all. Jack got off easy. If he didn't have such good friends in law enforcement, no one would have believed him. He would be in jail. Frankly, after all that happened with Mia, I wanted Jack to have his own comeback for Savino, I'm glad that he was quick on his feet. Looking forward to the next episode.
Casey seems just about the most in control of his feelings and is not at all lashing out at Mills because of Dawson. He defended Mills to his crew, which humbled his character. Making him one of my favorite characters on this series. His intentions are pure and not out of jealousy. His reasons for becoming a firefighter are different from Mills'. Mopping the floors was not payback, but made to keep Mills in check, while respecting his rank. He could learn about Squad on his time. Mills' interest seemed to affect more the crew, than Casey himself. What is up with the division there anyway?
It would have been fun to see Otis as a candidate and how Casey treated him. More-so, how Otis dealt with it.
Even though Casey has feelings for Dawson, he still respects her enough to want her happiness even if it is with Mills. Mills' insecurity about Casey is unappealing. It makes him seem immature, as though every time he has to show that he is 'with' her. The only person that should care about who sees that is him. Dawson however needs to make up her mind.
Now that Hallie is back, that window could close for Dawson. Hallie looked spunkier than ever, with a little extra sass. A lot of people found her boring before, but what if after all that time she did not really want children, to turn and tell Casey that she was carrying his child? That would be an interesting storyline.
Vegas has more growing momentum than the new Golden Boy series that is pretty decent. Hopefully this means that the network thinks Vegas can hold it's own. However, I really miss Vegas already, hurry back.
Daphne had a point when she was talking to Bay at the end. There is an entirely bigger picture to focus on. It still doesn't quash Bay's feelings. They have both become like sisters. Bay did push for Daphne and Regina to be closer, however we're not dealing with that chapter. Daphne is on a movement for change, that's not about figuring out where Bay fits in. If Bay, however were to give meaning to her love of Carlton, then we could stand for her and maybe after the battle, there could be a place. Just as Emmet stood up for Bay, a part of Daphne should have while still looking at the bigger picture, because she is more family than he is.
Noah and Daphne aren't really an ideal couple. I may prefer Bay's relationship with Noah, but it still doesn't stand out either. When Emmet confronted Daphne about the kiss not being cool, Daphne behaved recklessly as though she could not care for Bay's feelings. It's worse since she knew her past with Emmet. It was really insensitive.
Hey Dad! It's me Carrie! I'm gonna stand up here until you see me!
I guess it was time to have her both worlds collide. Having someone cover for her at her old job was only going to last so long anyway.
As for Cruz, Casey should have recommended counseling, or something to help Cruz through his depressed state, the first time he slipped up. Hopefully Cruz is able to find some peace and make a difference in other ways.
