It was funny and had some great moments, but I think I'm just done caring overall about this show. I watch it now with indifference. So it's apparently been resolved now that N&J's love was not great at all and incredibly easy to get over, so much so that they have no problem pushing one another to be with other people. Never mind Nick once saying he loved Jess more than he ever loved anybody. Yeah, that was some pretty weak love then. So...yup. I'm gonna just watch it and basically not invest myself in a show that can turn on a dime and cheat it's viewers with practically not even a second glance. The love is gone.

Exactly. But if N&J had never happened as they did in seasons 2 & 3, then I would've enjoyed last night's ep a lot more. Seeing Nick fall off that treadmill was hilarious. But seeing N&J act like their relationship wasn't serious at all is just baffling. I mean seriously, do the writers truly think the show will just keep chugging along without suffering the consequences of such bad writing? I just watch now with a tepid smile on my face, remembering those days where I would practically hyperventilate from laughter (Nick in that haunted house? LMAO!!!!). I'm just gonna write off the show in my head as having ended with season 3's EXES, and try and find a way to enjoy what could be NG's last season.

Understand your feelings and I am heading in the same boat as you. It is unfortunate that they have dropped what could have been a great couple AND they haven't even addressed the heartbreak of the relationship.

I thought the episode was good. I think at some point it will go into why Pride's father is in jail and I'm sure we'll see Dean Stockwell again............ I was annoyed at how Laurel was acting..............

NCIS Season 12 Episode 9 Review: Grounded

Well done episode.......I was beginning to think it was going to be a two parter...........Hey Doug.....is NCIS done for this year???? Jake was an excellent addition and I think we'll see him more. Palmer was a bit unnerving....but that's his character....always has been......... I would have loved it if they had Gibbs do a snow angel.......................

NCIS Season 12 Episode 9 Review: Grounded

By far one of the top episodes of the season. I love that writers gave Michael Weatherly an episode worthy of his acting abilities. I hate that we've only gotten glimpses of the competent and intelligent Tony that we love over the past few seasons. He's been used as McGee's back up for way too long, he is supposed to be the senior field agent after all. Bishop is starting to grow on me and I enjoyed the chemistry between her and Jake. Getting one of Gibbs rare smiles was the gift of the season.

Double amen! I've missed competent Tony since season 12 began. This was my favorite episode so far. I hope we're not back to joke of the week insignificant agent Tony now that he's gotten to be competent in one episode. I also enjoyed Bishop and Jake. The plot kept me guessing and the pacing was great. Everyone got to shine which is always nice. Like many other commenters mentioned, I too found Jimmy, whose character I like, pretty annoying. But the formula seems to dictate that Jimmy have the self humiliating "comic" moment when Tony gets the week off.

Amen to that. I've missed smart Tony so much, and he was great with Jake.

Somehow I missed this episode when it first aired...I finally saw it a few minutes ago, three weeks later. Of course I know the outcome. I have even more respect for the entire acting ensemble. Stunning episode. Emmy Award material.

Jake is ok but as a lawyer and non-Fed, he should not be at the criem scene. Plus, what was so special in Bishop this week? And the case is NOT navy at all!

Did you not watch? It was at an airport! Tony was there to pick up his father and just happened to bump into Bishop and her husband who were there because they were going somewhere for Thanksgiving...............

Why was Tony waiting at the gate? He wasn't a ticketed passenger.

@ Dido Twite

Because he had a badge he could go to the gate - he said as much to Ellie & Jake when they hooked up.

HE WAS THERE TO PICK UP HIS FATHER COMING IN FROM LONDON!!!!!!!!!

Bishop was the one who knew there where something wrong with the pretend air-marshall.

And then Tony did all of the thinking for the rest of the episode.

In the show I watched, Tony made every other important connection, while Bishop was oblivious.

I think they cast Jake as an NSA lawyer.

The Laurel sub-plot was weak. Girls always want their fathers to have a bromance with their bfs. The main plot was nice. At least it was Navy-related and not just a murder case.

I dunno why this show always has some goofball element to it among the other semi serious parts. The brawl with Campbell and Durant was slapstick and fairly bizarre. Maybe the show purposely wants to have goofy moments or they think that kind of stuff leads to a bigger audience, I dunno, a show doesn't need to be serious all the time but this show is usually mostly serious and the the lighter parts are just weird or amateurish. And Campbell had such a weird way of talking, and voice, I don't think it really worked. It was supposed to be menacing to some degree but it sounded more weird than anything. I wish the final season wasn't split into two years, but with 7 episodes per year it should be the most focused its ever been and hopefully the best. I have a feeling Cullen will be killed at the end, he'll finally kill the swede and then he'll be killed by someone else from a plot that's going on, maybe by a new character or maybe by Durant as a mercy killing if Cullen's family was killed, or just as a final act by those two people. I also assume Mickey and Eva will be in that new town next season, it's good that its a change of scenery even though the town scenarios will probably be the same.

Person of Interest Season 4 Episode 9 Review: The Devil You Know

Elias is such a well developed complex character. There are layers and layers to him revealed in mere moments in some of the episodes since season 1. He is strategic, articulate, honorable, studies Sun Tzu, acts as a man from an older world (remember that line from the hospital scene as he sits in the chair in half darkness?) and can see the world in absolute terms i.e. loyalty to his friend Anthony / Scarface from childhood to the violent end. Dominic is naive and completely fails to understand Elias, thinking that he can just buy people off, offer them a new crew, a piece of the action, etc. It's not always about buying off a person, it's not always about profit! I am really looking forward to Elias responding to the war that has been brought to him. There will be vengeance and Dominic (in all his hubris!) will utterly fail to survive.

I dunno why this is a season of misses, I like every episode in this series and half hour shows go so fast its never boring. I really like faking it too, im gonna miss awkward after the final season.
