And ziva nuts will whine and complain in 3...2...1...
I agree that the song, “A risk worth taking,” that Anikaand Mateo sang, is perfect for the show. I see the risk as, if Neil and Grace coming clean with each other it could heal and strength the marriage or end in divorce. Either way it would probably be a good outcome. Neil adding coffee to the coffee maker illustrates his passive-aggressive approach to his marriage problems. At this stage of the game, I can’t have much sympathy forGrace. Her hiring Simon as an escort was not some spur of the moment, alcohol influenced, decision. She had plenty of time to think it over, and she continued after the first encounter. Her desire to get back into her designing career is gettingoff the ground faster than anyone would have a right to expect and yet she continues lusting after Dylan with no regard for her sister or Neil, and Simon may still be in the picture. Why? It can’t be because she is not able to pursueher career. I am not sure what her excuse is now, except that she regrets getting married in the first place. She seems to have regressed back to before she was married. She seems to be thinking of no one but herself. Neil, on the other hand, got into the escort business asrevenge against Simon more than against Grace and in each of his escort encounters he seems to learn a lesson, even in his first encounter with Adrianna he learned not to take women for grated, re: the tie that Grace gave him. And he tries to apply those lessons to his marriage. I think Neil would like to save his marriage, if he couldfigure out what to do and have the courage to do it. I am not sure that Grace wants to. Maybe they should decide to take a break from theirmarriage, but, if Grace goes to Milan now without them talking through their problems it will be a disaster.
Maybe Neil arranges to work from Milan in today's day and age it's very possible and he goes along and gives Grace her chance.
Can't say that possibility didn't cross my mind, Neil is a very accomplished money man ,and I am sure that the thought of all the artistic opportunity that would be available for Anika, would definitely be a plus. The problem I am still having is that if your correct about Simon disclosure to Grace about everything Neil knows and has been doing, I am afraid she's going to push the guilt and blame on Neil and ask for a divorce.
Completely agree with your assessment of Grace. Her career goals have suddenly sky rocketed, and Neil has been really trying to support her and knows that is what drove them apart. But as you pointed out, Grace continues a 6 month affair with Simon, and now looks to have her sights on Dylan. No regards for what it could do to her marriage and her daughter. What I saw last night, gave me hope that just maybe she still loves Neil and maybe she's starting to feel a little guilty about her actions. I also thought that seeing what her daughter was going through may have made her reflect on the decision she made when she first met Neil. I have always hoped that she would finally grow a to see that all her extramarital affairs, we're not worth the loss of her family. But given what another post has pointed out, Neils mistake of not confronting her about Simon, after he originally found out, despite his best intentions, will probably spell out the end of this marriage.
I disagree about Odin...I still feel like he has something nefarious in mind for Ethan. On the flip side, Ethan will be the only one able to escape the "offsprings" mind control
I am wondering dont you think we have already too many guests stars on Arrow already? Each day I learn of a new character coming to Arrow or a new guest star. I wonder if that will help the show or not
It depends. Some of them are villains of the week type (like this) and others are necessary to round out character's back story. In order to learn who Felicity is, they had to cast people for her. She's getting a mom and an ex, using up two guest arcs. Seems like the focus is moving away from families we know well and onto those we don't. In that case, more actors are a good thing. :-)
I am so excited for this show to come back on!
Daddy Pope kind of reminded me of Annie Walker from Covert Affairs, actually - Smithsonian cover job.
Did you predict that Louis might finally discover Mike’s big secret and use it to save himself?I figured he would eventually, but I did not see the key storyline coming at all and that would be how he found out 100% about Mike. How did you react when Louis and Donna’s friendship fell apart right before our eyes?What Louis said to Donna and how angry he was made me sad for Donna. I think he took out the bulk of his anger on her. Do you think Louis can ever forgive all the people that he once trusted and saw as friends? Would you forgive them if you were in his shoes?That is a tough call, Harvey and Jessica are his superiors so they did not need to tell him. Yes when Jessica first found out about Mike, Harvey was not Name Partner. That being said I still do not think they needed to tell Louis. As for forgiveness once he has his name on the wall I think he will forgive them. If it was me I would like to think I could eventually forgive. What were your overall thoughts of the episode?It was a very good episode, I have never seen an episode that I do not like of this show! What do you predict will happen when the show returns? Will Jessica do as Louis asks or do you think she’ll find some way out of it?I wouldn't be surprised if Jessica and Harvey come up with a way to keep Louis quiet and NOT put his name on the wall. However at this time I do not see how they could get out of it so I will contradict myself and say that Jessica will have to make him Name Partner!

I believe the answer to the question around Tom's body is that Tom got up and walked away after being shot.
I like that answer!
Ok Ziva was awesome and everything, she was my 2nd favourite character, but to say you wont watch the show without her is a little OTT, the show worked before without her and they're doing just fine now, so as much as I LOVE Ziva and MISS Cote, the show still has Gibbs so I'm still satisfied, but I agree, she should come back, but Bishop should stay too, she's great :D btw for the person who keeps spamming about Ziva being gone is a douche and everyone here will agree you're WAY outvoted dude... -_-
Can I review the review? If so, I feel you totally missed the more interesting, amusing aspects of the episode. Not even a mention of Maura sleeping in the nude? This review was horrible. Also, when commenting on a well known aspect of police-speak,it would behoove you to look up the proper spelling of 'mirandize', for example. Otherwise you come off looking unprofessional for not proofreading your work, and somewhat ignorant. I expected better from this website.
