Well, I'll echo the other posters in saying what a great ep this was--one of the better ones this season. Man... Briggs' head sure is a dark place to be, ain't it? Good on the writers for making Charlie the recipient of the tape--I'd never have guessed that the officer at Sid's precinct called her....which makes me wonder, does that officer know Charlie's a fed? And is HE an undercover fed too? I think we're in for a wild finale (it's a 2-parter) and right on time. These sub-plots are become kinda tangled and convoluted so it's time to unravel them and tie 'em off.
Well if Hank's girlfriend is disappointed in his looks, pass him over here. :-)
Well, so much for Abuela Mala (Evil Grandma); the right meds set her straight apparently. Yaay for SacDare--KISS her already you fool!!!!!!! Yaay too for Evan's balls re-exiting his body in walking away from Ray. And good luck to Ray with a potentially homicidal wife--what a classy broad....NOT!!!!!! I can't BELIEVE Hank fell for little sister's crocodile tears. And speaking of crocodiles, can we feed her to one please? I'm LONG over her; now she's just some fly you can't swat. And what's this about Hank turning down a board appointment from Boris? I think Hank needs a CT scan.

This episode was a bit slow because it seems the writers are "positioning" the actors for something to come, which is why I kept watching. I'm poised to see what comes of Mike's cover-up, Briggs' learning of the recovered cassette, the bank heist (and that the robber is sleeping with the victim), and Johnny's op with Solano. If I had to pick one, it would be the first on the list--you KNOW Paige is gonna go BAT. SHIT. CRAY-CRAY. on Mike. Youpin, my thoughts exactly. That oughtta be interesting too.
Glad to see that Divya did good in helping Vivianna--kinda makes me wonder if Jeremiah will change his mind about her moving out. Sad though that Vivianna seems to be on her way out--poor Jeremiah. "I didn't think Lorena was a snake,..." Well you're a nicer person than me. Darn it--just when I was starting to like her character too. I guess I should have seen it coming when she suggested that Divya leave Sashi in Argentina. Meanwhile, if Rafa REALLY wanted to to see his daughter he'd take a break from skirt-chasing and get on a plane to the Hamptons. I'd also be curious to know if Argentina REALLY lets a non-custodial grandparent register a child of an absentee parent for a passport. Talk about "suspension of disbelief." Did you hear that "whoosh" sound when Emma asked Evan why he was calling her? That was the sound of his b@lls retreating back inside his body. Why didn't he just call her out and get it overwith? The ending made me laugh, though I know it wasn't supposed to. An attempted mob hit in the Hamptons? And judging from next week's trailer, some sort of Godfather-esque vengeful backlash? How melodramatic is this gonna get?

"Apparently Mike thinks his job is to save the world..." Ain't that the truth? He obviously feels like he has something to prove, so I hope it's all worth it in the end, particularly if he goes back to D.C. for his "victory lap"--and unseats that BEEEEEEEEEEEE-OTCH Jess.As much as I wanted Jess to be the rogue agent who tipped off Carlito, in retrospect, that probably would have been too "convenient" (ie, blame the person we don't know). So now we have a new villain...and to think Giovinazzo played such a sympathetic character on CSI: New York. :-)

I saw her snap pics of the athlete, but not while he was undergoing any sort of medical procedure or while he was hospitalized. Even if she did, I don't think she's violating HIPAA because she's neither a licensed physician nor an employee of HankMed. Didn't they already do a lawsuit arc when Hank was addicted to his painkillers? I'm not sure the writers will go there again.

Oh, and open letter to TV Fanatic: Forcing visitors to sit through a 2-minute video on a daily basis is gonna cost you hits. I can see that the volume of comments is down, and this is probably the reason. Other sites make visitors sit through a 30-second or 1-minute video every 7 days--just sayin'.....
Pretty good episode, particularly because Jeremiah stepped up and planted one on Vivianna--good on him!!!!!!!! Evan's little dream sequence next to Ray in bed was hilarious. It's not the image I found funny--it's the "hit us over the head with the 'in-bed-with-the-mob' metaphor" that was funny. As for what Paige found in Russell's study, that's intriguing, but I almost feel better if he has it instead of those two entitled peri-millennial brats who don't know how valuable it is (and/or don't care). Emma's little sideline seems innocuous enough, but I wonder if the writers have something in mind for this arc--like MAYBE Emma photographs something or someone she shouldn't. I suppose it could devolve into more melodrama from this "long lost sister" thing if they don't handle that correctly, but they either need to do something with it, or stop showing it.
So...where's the review?
