I agree. Abby's nose in Tony's business really annoyed me; had she done it to me, she would have gotten thoroughly chewed and spit out. It really is no business of hers, and being Tony's friend still does not make it her business. Unless he asks for help, the proper thing to do is to keep off the grass. I really did NOT like this episode. I sort of liked the ATF agent. But then, I was never a Tiva shipper; I never thought she was good enough for Tony. Of the females he's been shown to date, this is the first one who did not make me vaguely ill.
I always love this show, but I thought that this was their best episode in a while. It had pretty much everything, including the charming moments when Finch spoke to Bear over the phone to get him to eat his breakfast. Everyone played a part, and Lionel did not only get the paperwork this time. I truly did NOT see it coming when Finch paid off the Chinese man who had "mugged" them. Clever. And it is always a delight to see Elias; I am a big fan of Enrico Colantoni. I suspect that his character will continue to get slowly sucked into doing good rather than evil; bit by bit, unwilling though he may be. That is fun to watch. Root was not there; I do not hate her the way some seem to do, but I also did not really miss her. I noticed her absence, and forgot it. The hour was full as it was.
I also noticed when Beckett called Castle a fellow cop. Interesting. It was pretty obvious that the two captives were in the shower room where it had started; there was no suspense there. That has been already done in several other programs that I watch in the last few years, and undoubtedly in quite a few I don't watch. I figured when Ryan and Esposito came busting into that shower room, that they used the same time warp device that DiNozzo used to get to FInland on NCIS, and that Gibbs used to get to the ship in the Atlantic, also on NCIS. That time travel device is making the rounds. Now it has jumped networks! I agree with Roni O. Something is still missing. I used to watch the seasonal DVD's of past years several times a year. I haven't bothered to watch last season's yet, and I don't know when I will bother. I started being appalled when they brought in that Pi and turned Alexis into a bitch. It still does not feel right. But Martha still looks fabulous -- whomever is her dresser really picks the right colors and fabrics to make the lady look wondrous.
She really struck me as a robot, also. Or, lobotomized.
Tommy and Michael both have sizable fan bases. I never even heard of Jonathan before, and I still do not know who he is. Even I, a non-fan of NASCAR, have heard of Michael Waltrip. And I have known precisely who Cheech and Chong are since they first started. However, I am sitting out the voting this season, and just enjoying the dancing. Jonathan may or may not have gone home early, but these things usually shake out so that the best dancers make it to the finals. Usually.
I think that Pride went through the same time warp to get to the ship in the Atlantic Ocean to meet with Gibbs, that Tony went through on NCIS to get from the Navy Yard to Finland to pick up Gibbs and McGee. Apparently NCIS has a patented time warp they are not sharing with the rest of us....
That actress is (I think) Heather Burns. Her most memorable role, for me, was as the slightly ditzy shop assistant in You've Got Mail, with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. It was nice to see her again.
How boring that would be! And how un-Abby-like! She is a true naïf, and has maintained her charming innocence since the second season, anyway. She did not quite start out like this, if you go watch the season one DVD's. She used to be more sophisticated and provocative. Not a lot, but a little. Her voice is not quite the same, either. This was deliberate on someone's part, and not likely to change at season 12. Not when it is the number one drama on this planet.
Gibbs did graduate from high school in 1976, probably at the age of 18, which would make him born in 1958, and make him 56 now, give or take a month here or there. (I graduated high school at 17, as did about one third of my class, due to the cutoff date for enrollment in my home state for Kindergarten.) So, he could also be 55. Is there a forcible retirement age for Special Agents?
Christine -- Late in the original run of the series Dallas, the writers made a monumental mistake and killed off Bobby Ewing. The season dealing with the ramifications of his death was a total critical and ratings disaster. So, in a scene so ridiculous that it has been considered the shark-jumping moment for Dallas, the writers had Pam Ewing hear her shower running, open its door, and find Bobby Ewing in there, showering. It had all been a dream of Pam's. Martha would no doubt enjoy greatly finding Patrick Duffy in her shower, either as himself, or as Bobby Ewing. I know I would. They are both charming and gorgeous. Martha does have an eye for eye candy.
