Kitty is an expendable character. These are only wild guesses, but what will Kitty do/sacrifice to get her rapist (maybe her life?). Watson is no longer competing with Sherlock, by closing shop. That's one accomplishment. It might also be a future plot twist if she discovers something sinister about the insurance company and needs Sherlock to help her bring it down ... and Kitty is gone and the two are back together like previous seasons. It's possible!
Hilarious episode! Lily was one of the few funny clowns I've ever seen. I enjoyed Luke and the girl next door too. Poor guy. It was funny all Manny found out about himself (and so perfectly Gloria that she would just fabricate a reality to help him be as proud of himself as she is of him). I really don't like Phil and Claire's neighbors, though (Halloween or this episode). They're just not very nice. All 3 households had great story-lines this week, though!!
I think the whole talk about leaving the FBI is just the set up for the end of the show, that the writers will fill out dead time here and there for the rest of the season discussing what comes next -- which hopefully will lead to some syndicated version of the show, but otherwise will probably be the two of them riding off into the sunset.
I didn't think there was any "story" to this episode/story. It was all gimmicks/jokes, like every situation could only happen in a sitcom. whereas the basis for Modern Family's success is the humorous and sometimes insightful way it handles real events or real feelings that relate to real experience (naturally within comedy entertainment). Not a good episode this week (to my mind, anyways).
Fischer didn't seem to serve any purpose, so I'm glad she's gone. I like Vega a lot. She strikes me as a Grace type character who will help Jane without questioning & criticizing him. I liked the comment about Abbot being in charge except when Jane is, and I liked the awkwardness of what could Lisbon say when Jane was standing up for her with the stick-up-his-rear FBI agent. She kind of just had to stand there and wait for it to be over. I also liked that they acknowledged Jane had money, which they seemed to utilize in the past and overlook some too. I suppose it could be a gargantuan ego, but Pike struck me as a little too bitter (maybe caused by his ego) ... like he may turn out to be a bad guy before the show ends.
I don't like it in shows when the bad guy gets off. Even less do I like any inference that murder is a positive way to carry out your fanatical ideology -- which, I'm sorry, but is how I took this. Bella and Holmes were fun, so this was otherwise a good episode, but the conclusion does and will bother me.
What you're saying is true and all (and exactly what they did), but Castle plays games and fantasy role-playing and, much like the end of Quigley Down Under, it would have been fun and not so far from the realm of possibility that Castle could have turned out to win a quick draw in the climax. Just for fun, not realism.
They've definitely changed the dynamic between Holmes and Watson. I wonder where it will lead. Holmes and Watson may not have equal talent, but each is capable of doing the job alone that they used to do together (sort of like a boss leaves a company, an assistant is promoted and does the job successfully for a year, the the boss decided to return and right off shows off his superior skills). What's the interaction going to be like? I'm not sure how it can be even friendly unless something changes/develops. I like both characters and will be watching to see what they'll do, but I admit I'm a little afraid the show will fade away.
FYI She was calling the company that makes gourmet gift baskets, probably from an 800 number on the tag on the gift basket she was complaining about. I think it was Harry & David, if I remember the names right.
I saw an old Tyrone Power-Betty Grable movie recently, "A Yank in the R.A.F." Grable couldn't resist Power & even ran to England to get away from what he did to her. He's a cad, a heel, runs into a buddy when he has a date with her & doesn't show until 4 AM. She meets a nice guy, Power's commanding officer, who wants to marry her and she's determined to ... but Power goes missing in a dogfight and it's all out the window. The nice guy says he was afraid he couldn't pry her away from him. She rushes to Power as he comes off a ship, bandaged, and is all over him -- and even then, at the end of the movie, a cute nurse comes running up saying "our" car is here and he brushes her off & she says but you're not going to forget about Thursday? He stutters out he'll remember to change the bandage Thursday; then takes Grable's arm and as they go off (with the nice guy following along), Power says, "I know, I'm a heel ..." and it makes no difference anymore. That's Lisbon and Jane, for all his faults, and Pike the nice guy who can't pry her away.
