Yes, I kind of DID think that Maxine had figured out that Reese is "the man in the suit".
The funniest moment of the show for me was when Finch hid in the closet, looked around himself, and found he was standing in an armory. The wide-eyed look of horror was hysterical. He usesd his soldier of fortune, but is surprised at the tools of his trade? Hysterical! So is his pampering of the dog.
Not enough Jake. Not enough Berta. I may have missed it, but I thought that Alan thought that Rose might have killed Charlie. But he does not seem to have mentioned it in the recent episodes .... I think she is crazy enough to have done it.
The look on Mayim/Amy's face when she delivered that line was what cracked me up. It was perfect.
The only reason Sheldon and Leonard continue to live together is as a setup for the show. Both of them make enough money to live alone, even in Pasadena. Remember when Sheldon loaned Penny money? He had all those uncashed paychecks in his desk, and he has cash squirreled away all over the apartment. No one in his or her right mind would live with Sheldon. He is a nightmare. For a while, he appeared to be growing, but he seems to have come to a screeching halt again. Tiresome.
I hope Lance catches a cold and goes away permanently. But given his sad attachment to Booth and Brennan, I expect they will have to remove him from their house with dynamite.
Cyndi Lauper, on the other hand, I could not be happier! I have been wishing that she would reappear on this show. I loved her character.
Humans eating placentas is not all that unusual. My best friend kept the placenta from the (home) birth of her second child, and ate it later. They are chock full of excellent nutrients, which is one reason why female animals often eat them after giving birth. She was trying to heal her daughter. It is an unusual use, but not unheard of. There is actually a market for placentas.
I also do not agree that Espo, Ryan, and Lanie did not believe in his guilt. I think that they did. And I think that Kate lied when she said that she did not doubt him. She did. Still, it was a pretty good episode. Not as good as I thought at first viewing, though.
And Kate does have a bullet scar from her shooting. It is right in between her breasts.
I just watched this again, twice, and I noticed that the final scene setup was ridiculous. There is no way that 3XK could anticipate that Castle and Beckett would get to that bridge just as it was being raised for a boat, that they would be first in line at the bridge, and that he would manage to be right behind them. Also, while bullet-proof regular clothing has been created, it is stupid to assume that Beckett and Castle would not shoot him in the head. I would. (I realize that it is against Standards and Practices rules to actively shoot someone in the face on TV. It is only allowed if you come upon the dead body later. But, still ...) This no doubt made it very dramatic, but it is still outside the normal bounds of suspension of disbelief for this show. I LOVE this show, but this scenario is ridiculous.
He has always been able to shoot like that. In one episode, he and Kate were at the shooting range, and they had a bet on whether she could teach him to shoot well enough to win, and he screwed up a shot or two and then nailed the target fast with the remaining shots. Her face was priceless.
There is also the episode where they captured the man who eventually killed Roy Montgomery. He shot the gun out of his hand, or something like that, and his comment linked it back to Firefly ... "I was aiming for his head." But his previous shooting at that range made it clear he is a dead shot. Of COURSE he is! Considering everything else he has learned for his writing, that would have been one of the very first things he mastered.
It was made clear early in the series that Gibbs wants to use hand tools to do his wood-working, not power tools. He would never accept, nor ever use, all of the power tools Eutro listed. He was protecting someone or other at his house one time, and that person was helping him work on his boat, and started sanding or scraping the wrong way, against the grain of the wood. Gibbs stopped them, and gave them a small lecture on hand work. He will always do it by hand.
I got home too late to see the whole episode, and haven't caught it today on the internet yet, so I can't comment on that. But the hand tools are very much a part of the character of Gibbs. He puts in the work at everything he does; he does not take the easy way out.
I agree with Margaret. That child is a living doll. And he is not over-exposed, as he's not a regularly-working actor, and when he's there, his mom is with him. Excellent!
I loved Rossi's remark to Reid about the high pitch of his IQ.
I remember this actress from a Castle she did, playing the ex-wife of an amnesiac. She was eerily nuts here. I guess I have gotten callous over the decades. Nothing they have done on this show has ever bothered me as much as the scene in Dirty Harry where he tortured Andrew Robinson's character, and Robinson squealed like a pig. But this was crazy nasty. She didn't do it to get off; she was nuts. Nuts unnerves me more. (It was ten years before I could watch Andrew Robinson again, and seeing him still gives me pause.)
