I can't believe no one mentioned how gross it was when Hester stuck her finger in Mrs. Bean's leg! I'm still grossed out just thinking about it. I guess that's one thing to say about the show though, there aren't a lot of boundaries! I did love all the scenes between Hester and Chad, though. They're both totally twisted! Lea Michele really shined in this episode though. I actually loved that she took initiative and kicked that guy in the junk. But it did seem a little out of character for Chanel. It's hard to believe she was getting all upset about women being viewed as objects when she completely lets Chad objectify her and doesn't seem to care about people in general. And that's not me being a prude or anything, this is just who her character is. So it just seemed a little off base. It was fun to watch though. And I actually liked the scenes between Pete and Grace when they were dressed as Matthew and Kate. They looked great! And his McConaughey impression was fun! I don't know that the red devil was actually previously storing the bodies at this house, since Zayday had visited the house beforehand, along with the others, to check it out. It seems more like the red devil knew she was doing it there and set it up for everyone to see. It's strange though that people didn't question the absence of Boone's body, but I guess that's more believeable to go with their "suicide" story. And I guess the red devil doesn't care to take credit for it, or pretend credit rather since he's actually alive. The reveal of Gigi was intriguing, can't wait to see what that means in the future. Otherwise both Wes and the Dean have been acting rather suspiciously, I'm sure there will end up being another reason behind it, not that they're the killers - especially since the dean has a scene coming up where she, herself, will be attacked in the shower. It seemed lame to me for Grace to revolve this all around herself. Like why did this start happening right when SHE got there... What about Zayday? Or Hester? Or the other freshman? They ALL just got there. So it's a little ridiculous to assume it's all about her. I mean, I get the stuff with her mom, but that doesn't automatically mean she's the baby. I'm thinking she won't be now since that's the obvious assumption. It was all just a little annoying. And I'm not a hater on her, I don't really think she's always that boring. But overall, it was a pretty great episode, so it's really sad the show isn't doing well and will probably be canceled.
Amy, I could barely swallow after that leg scene. I was completely nauseated, especially because of how close Hester came to putting the finger in her mouth as she was flailing around. And, Hester is so gross it wouldn't have surprised me if she had done that. Oh. I'm gagging again. Just no. Barf!
I know, it grosses me out just thinking about it! The noises and everything it made, GROSS!! lol
Gotta love that the subtle has returned to 'NCIS'. I saw Tony not wanting to go with Gibbs as knowing he'd answer honestly when Gibbs asked why he was doing the ancestry search. He wanted the team to think he was being shallow and silly (deflected them with the stuff about the Earl) and he knew Gibbs knew it was deeper than that. Personally I don't think any of them were laughing AT Tony but Gibbs smile was for how Tony reacted when he found out about Archie. And I though the look on Tony's face was rather sad behind his mask.
The writers for the most part seem intent on making Bishop look stupid...maybe because she's the only married one...and they'll probably sabotage her marriage too. Loved the quirks she had when she arrived on the show, but they've taken all those away now, too. Apparently the writers are among the group of people intent on proving that NO ONE can replace Ziva. McGee's pouting has carried over from last season and he needs to grow up or leave. Despite Tony being the Senior Agent on Gibbs' team, McGee has this elevated opinion that he is better than Tony...maybe it comes from his father being an Admiral while Tony's Dad's reputation is somewhat questionable; or maybe it's because McGee is a "published" author that he thinks it makes him better than his peers.Tony has never liked being paired with Gibbs if Gibbs is driving. Gibbs' driving skills give Tony "white knuckle" nerves the entire time they are on the road. Not fond of the idea of Jeanne Benoit coming back into the picture...didn't like the pairing the first time around.
Her actions at her apartment made sense to me. First priority was escaping, second was clues. Plus, anything she finds could be dismissed in court as inadmissible as it wasn't in a chain of custody. So even though she could find something, it may not help her. It could be enough for them to investigate further, but alone would do nothing. Plus, remember, NONE of that was there when she left. It wasn't that she had to look for a hidden clue - the whole freaking place was set up. Imagine walking into your home, and someone moved every one of your belongings and changed everything - all the changes would take so much time to process, you might not know where to start. She didn't know how much time she would have, so it makes sense that she'd gather what she can and then try to look around, but she didn't even get to the second part b/c what's-her-face showed up. I agree that I strongly dislike them being romantic rivals. Brains rivals? sure. But let's not trivialize them! And, I was pretty surprised to hear her say "love" re Booth. Re: Miranda - the scene was meant to show she was struggling with "why do we do this" AND show how well Liam knows her. That could be valuable later either in showing how he played her b/c he knows her, or her ability to reason with him that this whole thing is crazy. Reading Liam's reactions, while I think he was shady as all hell throughout, I don't THINK he's behind framing her, he almost looked disappointed when Booth said it was her who shot him. I DO wish he could have said that he didn't see who, but do something else that keeps suspicion on her, but that's just my nitpick. It does seem like they're "all secretive", but we're focusing on about 6 characters in a room of over 100, so I don't think it's really that bad :D
Kate's married to her favorite author of all of six months? And suddenly she needs time and space? Didn't she have that for the past 6.5 years?!?! And hasn't she learned by now that they work better together then she does by herself? The way she said to the boys "Castle's here" full of disgust, made me want to punch her through my TV. and then forbid the boys to have anything to do with him. They better get them back together in the next few episodes. But it would serve her right (not that he would) but if Castle said no.. when she wanted to come back home.. And I agree.. Lanie was very wrong to tell him what she did. Lanie is normally telling Kate that Castle isn't going to wait around forever.. maybe someone should tell her that again.
surely there are things that could have been done better, but have you heard what Kate said to Vikram at the beginning of the episode? “If this takes any longer, than Castle’s going to find out what we’re doing. And if he does, he’s going to step in, and he’s going to put himself in danger.” This why she is keep him in the dark. She said to Rick that she "needed space", this gave him no clues why she was leave him. That's why he tried the whole episode to "win her back".
Maybe it's just me but I think Tony does want kids after all (Told Kate he didn't think he could handle being a parent) and that as things have moved forward with Zoe he's found out that she doesn't want them and this is why he looked wistful when he told Gibbs it didn't look like kids were in his future. On that note I think there's a possibility he'll find out he already is a dad when Jeanne returns in November. Would fit in with the information that something "rocks Tony's world"). Said this in my own write up: DO NOT break up Ellie & Jake. Just don't do it 'NCIS'!
Huh. That's actually quite an intriguing theory regarding Jeanne. It would definitely rock Tony's world, wouldn't it?
Only thing that's coming to mind at the moment. And I can see her NOT telling him she'd had a baby in February 2008 (if she conceived in May of 2007 just as the whole relationship came tumbling down) after he told her none of it was real. Protected her child from having a father who never really loved his/her mother and by extension, him/her.
God I hope not. She definitely wasn't pregnant or looked like she had recently given birth when she accused Tony of murdering her father, although I do realize that TV land in no way resembles reality. That's a tired plot device, but then most of these eps are. I frankly can see her telling Tony they had a child, getting Tony into the "I'm a Dad" mode and then Tony finds out she lied about him being the father to hurt him again. GG did say it would not end happily for Tony. Or hopefully, she will die.
1. I totally disagree with Lanie on this. I was mad at her for throwing his disappearance in Castle's face. 2. A class taught by Castle would be the highlight of my education!3. I really can't stand the new 'adult' Alexis. I have no problem with the idea of her being more adult at 22 but it's like they made her 35 years old, flaunting her sexuality and drinking scotch to celebrate. These actions just don't fit the character that we've seen raised on the show.4. I'll continue to watch but the joy and anticipation over a new episode is gone and it saddens me greatly. The worst of all for me is that now I'll never believe Kate's promises to Castle. When the next obsession comes along, she could just as easily go again.5. I'm heartily agreeing with Robin on this one. Beckett had no right to get physical with Castle in the precinct. That was just plain cruel.6. The cell scenes were both good for me. I liked Castle being authoritative and figuring out what was really going on in the first scene, and when he and Kate were in the cell the second time, I liked that Castle questioned her so directly. For once, it was Kate that went off the rails and ended the discussion with a distraction. At least Castle is trying to nail her down on this.
I live for NCIS, but something about this episode made the whole thing feel like a cheap knockoff. I haven't read every comment, but, to me, the most glaring incongruity was the scene with Bishop and the killer. He had his hands around her neck for thirty seconds, and never noticed the scissors in plain sight that she was fumbling for. Also, why would she enter the house unarmed in the first place? Another thing, the McGee pout is getting old. McGee seemed like a more secure individual last year, and this year he seems to have regressed. Maybe I am expecting too much, but it felt like this episode was written by a novice.
The killer's tunnel vision isn't actually all that surprising. Such hyper-focus during stressful situations, when the adrenaline is pumping, can make a person lose sight of, or not even notice, seemingly-obvious things.
They are leaving the plot devices too obvious and making the characters look like idiots. She never would have gone in without at least the phone. Where was her knife and/ gun? She didn't need to go in at all. They were taping it, Tony and Gibbs were on the way. Bad guy wouldn't have gotten far.Need to work a bit harder there for the best show on tv..
I do agree that what Bishop did by entering that house alone and not waiting a few minutes for backup, was pretty stupid and irresponsible on her part. However, I can see Gibbs, Tony, Kate and Ziva all doing the same thing. I too am tired of all the relationship fails on tv. Please NCIS writers be smarter than the Castle writers and let Bishop and Jake work it out before it comes to one of them leaving. I am not invested in Tony's relationship with Zoe, so I don't care about that one, nor do I care about Deliah. I would have like to know what tipped Newtie off about the Mrs. Something must have and I doubt he was secretly taking measurements of her beauty mark placement.I liked the fight scene with Bishop, but thought it was unrealistic that he didn't stop her from reaching for those scissors. He had the advantage and could plainly see what she was doing.
Desperation can make you a bad observer, tunnel vision, Hudson was concentrating on Bishop, not their surroundings.
Them getting back together seems unrealistic to me, because of the way she left.
