@Sis, for what it's worth - I think your theory is bang on the money.
@Josh: Camaro. Got it. Thanks!
Just for kicks: I think a word becomes a word when one person utters it and another person understands it. Anyway, just a thought. Carry on. : )
Fascinating news. Criminal Minds starting losing control over the narrative when real-life issues entered the arena, beginning (in my opinion) when they originally cut A.J. Cook. These are all truly talented people working on an established popular show. They should probably do what the cast of "Friends" did and bargain as a team with management. And although Jeanne Tripplehorn hasn't grown on me yet, I think she has what it takes to complete the team. She'll never be a Prentiss nor will she take her place but then she wasn't written to be.
I noticed the lack of helicopters too! What a treat that this show is set in 60's.
Mad props too to Margo Martindale, who in this episode played Claudia playing an old forgetful woman. Wow can that woman act.
That said, I was really suprised that we didn't lose of one of our main characters. I was sure someone was going to bite the big one. As the story progressed I thought it would be Claudia, then Philip, then I thought "nah. They wouldn't let Elizabeth go - she's the hub of the entire show". So they got rid of no one and so I thought "well they're going to let Paige find her mom's secret stash. Even that didn't happen - it only hinted at her suspicion.
Great show! I'm looking forward to next season.
Great question Kit. It's called "Sleepwalk" by Santo & Johnny. And thanks for the reminder: I forgot to include it in tonight's final notes - now added.
@Scott: I wondered the same thing but also watched the crash scene a few times. The driver who t-boned them actually had his lights off until the last minute, then suddenly turned them on. For that reason I think it was deliberate.
Another thing I wondered but neglected to mention in my review: at the end of Ducky's rant to Gibbs he said something interesting, in relation to Director Elbaz: Every time we deal with Mossad, something bad happens. Please, tell me you're having second thoughts about what you've agreed to here. What's that about?
@Nicole: the signal was coming from Bodnar's brother's cell phone which was acting as a repeater-conduit for Ilna's signal I think. Remember: his signal was repeating from stations all over the world, then narrowed down to the one point. I think that was a deliberately setup electronic misdirection: I wondered why else would they have it coming from some close to where everyone was.
@Robin: that body in the autopsy was the (supposedly rogue) Mossad agent who was shot at the beginning of the show - Amir Mantel.
Wow. Great interview Jim! Can't wait to see tonight's episode. Lots to chew on here.....
@kay: you're right. Had to to give it a shot though. I think whatever they come up with will exceed my imagination. ;)
