Briggs DID say it wasn't a good idea--that was the bit about dealers acting like field mice that retreat back into their hidey-hole when they sense something's wrong; that's when Mike asked Briggs to tag along. Afterward, Paige told Mike they were moving too fast. She may not have laid blame directly at Mike's feet (HELLOOOOO...she's sleeping with him!!!!!), but the perception is still there.

(Paige) could have had her hand stabbed by him any of the times she went to see him. I'm not sure I agree. Briggs' theory was right--Paige deviated from her usual MO and the dealer got suspicious. Instead of showing up alone and buying a few grams like she usually does without getting stabbed, she shows up with a stranger who wants a kilo and she did that because Mike pushed her to. THAT got her stabbed.
I agree. Mike's become quite imperious, and now he's shitting where he eats on BOTH coasts. This can't end well. Good thing he's pretty. :-) BTW, is that it for the new guy?
SMH..... Is this what this show has become? Some lowbrow soap opera in a highbrow enclave? Two boys named Judd and Nelson? Seriously? Paging John Hughes..... I fear this show may be circling the drain.
Mike with Paige seems like a dangerous move. He's the team leader now--shouldn't shit where you eat. "But what about Charlie and Briggs?" you say. Well, I guess it's kinda the same thing, but Charlie and Briggs both live there; in 8 weeks, Mike goes back to DC so where does that leave Paige if they do hook up? Won't end well.

Jakes' looking at apartments for him and his son threw me. Is Jakes "allowed" to live elsewhere? Does this mean he'll be quitting the Graceland crew?
Well, apart from the "medical case of the week", which is what drew my interest in this series to begin with, it was a pretty lackluster beginning to a new season IMO. The repeated flashbacks nearly made me reach for the Dramamine, and I could have done without seeing Bethenny Frankel who's apparently "too cool" for a theme party these days. And while I won't spoil it, the big build-up as to Emma's identity was just silly. I think we ALL know who she is by now--the melodramatic cliffhanger was unnecessary.

Saw this ep as a re-run and while I remembered it, and enjoyed it, you have to do some considerable suspending of disbelief to view it. How doe a guy THAT ugly get a girlfriend THAT attractive? Danny and Grace just up and fly to Japan? The Japanese people just HAPPEN to speak English?
I agree--his last line to Stuart in the comic book store was horrible and immature. When Leonard said "Sometimes little people are trapped in big people's bodies" (or something like that), he wasn' t kidding. Sheldon needs a good dose of Mama Cooper, but as I mentioned in another post, that might not happen because Laurie Metcalf is getting her own show this Fall. Yay for her, but I'll miss her on TBBT.
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and propose that Leonard moves in with Penny across the hall, while RAJ moves in with Sheldon. It sort of starts the cycle anew because Leonard was in a budding relationship, and now Raj is too; Sheldon's accustomed to that dynamic already so that satisfies his need for status quo, even if the people are different. Besides, Raj did move in with Sheldon temporarily (when Leonard "moved in" with Priya at Raj's apartment) and they both seemed to enjoy it, though a permanent arrangement might be a challenge--and a source of laughs for us. On a different topic, for anyone not following news about the new Fall schedule, Laurie Metcalf, who's BRILLIANT as Shelly's mother Mary Cooper, is getting her own show called "The McCarthys" about an Irish Catholic family in Boston. That means we're PROBABLY not likely to see Mary Cooper make any appearances on TBBT...unless the Wizard gives him a heart and he proposes to / marries Amy.
