It was ER, not Emergency. Getting them confused, but they both start with "E" and deal with hospitals. His character committed suicide, I believe.
Jim, I met Anne McCaffrey when she guested at a science fiction convention we used to have in Moscow, Idaho. She was a beautiful woman, but not well, and so her time was strictly rationed. I, too, loved her Pern books (still do), and it was a wonderful treat to meet her. I did feel bad that she was too unwell to fully participate in the goings-on. Nice lady.
I have always wanted to meet and visit with either Abraham Lincoln (I am from Illinois), or Queen Elizabeth I of England. Too late, in either case.
Good news to me. I too miss Grissom, but Ted Danson is very watchable. I had never seen Elizabeth Shue before she showed up here, and I find her character confusing at times, but as it is an ensemble cast, that's OK. It is more realistic than a lot of other shows have been, too, because in real life, people are coming and going most of the time from jobs. One does not work with precisely the same people for twelve years...
Going away and coming back is also realistic -- I have done that myself, as has another former co-worker of mine. So Jorja Fox's character makes sense to me. Grissom leaving her does not, though.
Any appearance by Bob Newhart is a good thing, but this sounds like it could be especially cute. That man is just adorable. His appearance as a man going blind on Emergency a few years back shows that he's actually also a good actor. Playing a Mr. Wizard-type? Gold.
Question 7 -- In theory, McGee already HAS a dog. Abby made him take that German Shepherd a few years back, and now and then it was mentioned, or pictured. He has never said he got rid of it -- it just kind of quit showing up.
It would be impractical for any of them to have a dog. Dogs have to be walked. They all live alone. They also all occasionally take off for the Mediterranean at the drop of a hat, or Afghanistan, or West Virginia. None of these things are conducive to dog ownership.
As for which one would most profit from someone warm and loving to come home to at night I would choose Gibbs or Tony. They finally showed us Tony's home this season, and the tidyness and coldness of it were heart-breaking, for me. And Gibbs comes home to Fornell, on occasion, but while cute, you can't pet him.

I was kind of living through the episode until the fake drama with Paris and Roy. My "willing suspension of disbelief" collapsed all over and never recovered. At that point it just got too convoluted, and all I saw was some bottle blonde of who I have never heard, arguing with "Chris in the Morning", who has not aged wonderfully. And yes, he needs a haircut.
I was reminded of the woeful attempt Criminal Minds made last year to expand their franchise. And not in a good way.
Spoiler: I live in Idaho. I used to live in Moscow, Idaho. It was HARD to get to the willing suspension in the first place ... I have flown in and out of the Moscow airport, which by the way is in Washington. You could put seven of it in that building. Do some research, people!
I'll be watching next week, because I love John Corbett. It took three years before I liked NCIS: LA ...
I took note when Abby brought ONLY McGee coffee, too, and noted Tony noting it. :-)
Poindexter is a great name for a dog. Reminds me of my own late dog, d' Artagnan. I thought about him a lot watching this episode, and I guess I had dust in my eyes at the end, too. A whole lot of dust.
@ Mike S Are you saying that this show has been cancelled, or that you think that it should be cancelled? I have not read anything about cancellation, either way, but I disagree that it is time to end the show. If Bones keeps staggering on when they have wrecked the relationship, I cannot see why Castle should die when they are doing a fine job of keeping on with the mysteries, while not being heavy-handed or ridiculous with the love affair. I think the writers on this show are walking a tightrope very well indeed, and they haven't fallen off yet.
Oh, I will remember it. I am an old woman now, and when I was young, I was subjected to some serious, hands-on physical sexual harassment from superiors. Had I done anything about it, I would have lost my job. The sergeant here FINALLY doing the right thing is a step in the right direction. I am very tired of having to hear about how to teach young girls not to get raped. It would be VERY NICE if someone would teach men not to rape. This episode actually may have been more useful than the story-telling in the average week.
