I agree with Greg Eckes and Rebecca. This disturbed me quite a bit, as a remarkably cruel and insensitive trick to play on a very sensitive man. It made for a great episode, but it still bothered me quite a lot. I would not have taken it well, had anyone done such a thing to me, especially after I had already seen that person die once (in the ambulance ...) That Castle took it that well appeared to me to be quite a struggle, and a conscious decision not to embarrass the woman he loved. That was a VERY long pause for thought.
Still, I liked it, up until that point. Well-written episode. Excellently acted. The number of folks who are in on their "secret" is getting to be a little unnerving. How can Gates POSSIBLY not know?
Hi, Ho, Matt! It was a trip into RYAN's past, not Espo's....
I was highly amused by Megan's comment that she just started keeping Kate so closely updated when she saw how much it bugged her. I've done that myself. Passive-aggressive torture. Lovely!
I don't like Tommy, but Peter was becoming a serious jerk. I am not sorry the character is gone, but I did like the actor quite a lot. I like Tommy's actor, just not the character. And sending Kate back into that room was NASTY.
It is also quite amusing to see Jeri Ryan portraying a budding politician, given that her ex-husband is an Illinois politician....
@ Robyn and AlFromMaine NCIS has no rule against fraternization. This was discussed on one of the early seasonal DVD's. The rule at NCIS is strictly that of Gibbs, who broke it himself when he had a relationship with Jenny Shepard. The agency has no such rule.
It is irrelevant that there is such a rule in the Navy (J*A*G). NCIS is not part of the Navy in that way. The NCIS staff are civilians.
If Tony and Ziva hooked up (personally, I think they will, and personally, I wish they would not), I doubt Gibbs would be against it. And institutionally, he could be sued if he enforced his rule, because it would be discrimination, as THERE IS NO SUCH ACTUAL RULE AT NCIS.
I like Mr. Fisher, although a little goes a long way. But Finn, Arastoo, Daisy, and Sweets could all be killed off, and I would not moan. I used to watch this show, and Caroline was a big reason. It's nice to read that she's getting some love interest. She is peach. Mr. Nigel Murray was lovely. Too bad he's the one they chose to kill off.
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.
