I really enjoyed the scenes with Fusco and Shaw. That's a pair which could work well together, well at least for our entertainment. Bear is adorable. I agree it was a bit of a filler episode, but it wasn't bad.
NCIS for the win. Harmon was right: it's up to them to stay #1 and I think they are on the right track. I've been disappointed in SHIELD. *crossing fingers* it will spark with me again. I'll give it another episode.
Question: why would they go as a doomed couple?
I understand that most people were interested in Lexie as a new character, but I feel that would have been a cop out, and a lot of old ground would have been rehashed. Audrey pretending to be Lexie at least allows for the progression of the storyline. It would have been tedious to cover all that ground again. I'm glad Duke has Jennifer; they work well together. I do wonder how long until Vince and Dave figure it out.
I agree, I'm confused. Though I did enjoy the dynamic between Divya and Evan. I miss old Paige. Her jealousy did seem to come out of left field, especially given that she didn't want to help Evan herself. And when has she opted out of helping Evan? I'm tired of Boris nonsense. The only thing that seemed like a logical derivation of previous seasons was Hank and his downward spiral. *sad sigh* Is it mean of me to think that the writers are bored and desperate? Because that's how they are making me feel.
The Divya and Jeremiah story has been slow burning since last season. I wish Evan would give him a hand. I'd love for more on the Boris front. I think that Boris and his mystique have been very underused, almost just as drop ins when the show runners seem to remember it. As if to add mystery because they feel that the show can't go without. It can. The dribbles are tiresome.
I'm glad they finally cleared the air. About time. We all knew that Auggie's time as the head of the DPD was doomed. I bet that Calder will make an excellent jefe, however much we suspect he's in league with Henry. So far there's no proof that Henry is right now acting actively against the US. I think he's a man who's gone over the edge. Henry is an extremely prideful man who is convinced he was the best chief in CIA history and that Arthur betrayed him to oust Henry and then got his son killed. He's definitely out for vengeance, because from his view he's never going to get justice. He's evil, but he's also a grieving father. I hope he goes down, but parents can react irrationally, even without his ego.
This episode didn't give us everything we hoped for, or else Dani wouldn't have put the brakes on a possible relationship with Nico. But, Nico coming clean, and we assume he did but it's possible he's holding something back, was a good step. Still enjoying Sheera; she provides TK a storyline for growth, but I'm dubious it will last. I don't think TK would be happy with someone more settled, but that may be what he needs. An athlete getting experimental medical treatment? Old news. Usually those clinics are in Germany or Switzerland.
Oddly I think Duke and Nathan could pass as brothers before this actor who will play Wade could, but make up does wondrous things. The new incarnation of Audrey looks like she's more into guys like Duke. Poor Nathan.
Well we are losing Caleb as the rock solid good guy, and Ashley really deserves one. So maybe Ted is going to be the substitute. But if he is a good guy, can you imagine how much fun A can have trying to implicate a minister? As far as boring storylines: Aria and Jake. I recognize he's closer to her age, but he started out as her teacher too. She's got some real Daddy issues she needs to address. I can understand Paige's fear about a long distance relationship. They stink and rarely work.
