Can you all please stop pretending that Scott Caan isn't a real person with a life of his own? If he chooses to spend time with his girlfriend and new baby, and TPTB allow him to do that, who are we to repeatedly get on his case about it?

Welll....maybe I'm splitting hairs here, but she didn't BARGE into the place. She politely knocked on the door and waited for someone to answer--seems to me THAT would have been a good time to get a call, not once she was inside. It was a dramatic plot device, but it was just so obvious....

I agree...bringing him back after a prolonged absence JUST to kill him off seems like a HIDEOUS waste of creative energy. I'm about to propose something that many of you might not like so if you'd rather not consider the prospect, stop reading now..... OK....did't Delilah recently take a new position based on the US, something that would likely dovetail into this case? True she doesn't get as much screen time as the others, but she's a fan favorite by proxy because she's McGee's girlfriend. I TOLD you you wouldn't like it.....shoulda stopped reading when you had the chance. Can't "unread" it now....sorry.

"Brody handled herself well but she knew Pride and LaSalle were on their way..." I don't think she knew that definitively--that's something a lot of law enforcement officers say, though it's not always true. Pride sends Brody to that house to interview the witness, who turns out to be living with the bartender...so WHY didn't Brody's cell phone ring with an order to wait for backup?

While the cases of the week were certainly intriguing, I couldn't help but feel a WHOLE LOTTA sorry and embarrassed for the three overgrown frat rats--like they EVER had a shot.

There's fantasy, there's reality, and then there's PRACTICALITY!!!!!!!! Paige is the kind of parent would have cautioned Ralph against doing something JUST because an adult did it successfully. For Walter to praise him was an epic fail on Walter's part. However, I'm willing to see it your way too--it's the Libra in me. "Fantasize" that Walter brought Ralph along on that little cliffside drive. How would that be d'ya think?

"When the brother showed up, I thought he was going to tell Howard he wanted his fathers share of the house. Glad it didn't go that way." Actually, there's a weightier issue they could use as a plot device, though it seems unlikely. Howard's father left him and his mother; was there a divorce? If not, and Howard's father MARRIED this new woman, he was a bigamist while Howard's mother was alive. That's a lawsuit waitin' ta happen.

Five stars? Sorry...gotta disagree with you. Frankly, CBS "oversold" this episode; the only "very special, touch-your-heart" moment was in the preview. I thought the writers could have added a LITTLE more emotion into the episode. However, I do agree that the Hofstadter vs. Cooper thing is getting WAAAAAAAAAAAAY old, and Melissa Rauch does a spot-on impression of Mrs. Wolowitz; when I first her do it in one of the early seasons, I remember being surprised that Mrs. Wolowitz was voiced by Ms. Susi.

See, the intriguing thing about this finale is that WE know who killed Lila, but the characters don't so they'll have to piece that together. Annnnnnnd there was zero progress regarding the investigation into Sam's murder so that's more fodder for season 2. Invest in some quality seat belts and get ready to strap in.

I had that same theory early on, but I wonder about the "Uncle Clyde" angle. Wes is clearly of mixed race, while her uncle probably wasn't.
