I saw the whole Bishop/Gibbs parallels as more of a Father/Daughter vibe - u know how kids copy what their parents do even if they're not sure why. There r similarities between Bishop & Gibbs personality wise (private, stubborn, somewhat perfectionists) and she has said "I want to be like u, Gibbs." Doing the math, it seems she also is about the same age Kelly would be now & I really think Gibbs sees what his daughter could've been in Ellie. I saw this ep as forging the paternal bond,if u will. However, I hope other bonds don't get overlooked - like Gibbs & Tony. I miss their closeness & would love scenes between them like we got w/Ellie in this ep. Also, I always thought the Gibbs/Abby dynamic was the most clear & natural paternal bond on the show (why he treats Abby different & shows his softer side w/her). The question to Gibbs of "Do u have kids?" has come up a lot in recent seasons. As much as I understand his answer "I did", I feel like he's overlooking the "kids" he's been given and has now - his team. Maybe that's what Kelly was trying to tell him when she said "It's about the future now"-the future of Abby and Tony and McGee and Ellie. Ok, back tot the ep. I loved the family moments with the Bishops, tho I have to say i would've been a little peeved that Abby didn't get something like this if I didn't know her brother Luca was (finally!) being introduced. Also, wish we would've actually seen Gibbs open up/talk to Dr Taft - reveal how he's really feeling and what he's afraid of. The crime plot tonight was different but you're right - it's hard to care for characters we don't know so it almost felt like a "B" plot. Tho it was great to see Fornell again-love that guy!
Are you sure Barbara is married? Where has he been? They've been there a couple of days and he was mentioned a number of times, but only coming on Thanksgiving. Maybe I was reaching, but I was hoping for a connection between Gibbs and Barbara, too. I'd like to see him with somebody who isn't a ba**breaker for a change.
I don't get it. What does jarring artisanal pickles have to do with Dr. Perlmutter's going full hipster with a beard?
He was also "Candy" on Bonanza...

"Betsy stopped by Hank's house to feed his cat and discovered his room papered with odd symbols. They seemed to knock the wind out of Betsy, and I'm not sure what they were or why they had that effect. My initial assumption was that they were UFO-related." Of course they are UFO related. There have been references throughout the series so far of UFOs and did you not notice at the end of that scene the 5 note reference to Close Encounters of the Third Kind. G.Lorje
I know we didn't hear a gunshot or see blood, but I am hoping Simone is dead. I can certainly understand Bear's reasoning in killing her. She's disloyal and a danger to the family. Bear's reaction afterwards was so extreme I seriously doubt that he let her go.
Spot on review, Christine. You said everything I was thinking last night.I sincerely hope somebody who knows what the heck this show is about takes over for the second half of season 8.Although I will say, I enjoyed the dance routine; that was fun for me.But the rest of your comments: absolutely
The actress who played Lucy is Kasha Kropinski; she played Ruth in Hell on Wheels. :)
Not surprising that Trubel or anyone else, for that matter, found him. Nick is employed. He has to have a proper address on his employment record. He drives a car, so does Adalind. easy enough to place a tracker on either car. The players in all camps seem to have people in positions of resource and power. It stands to reason that anyone can hire an expert to tail one or both of them or to check paper trail. Nick doesn't want anyone to know where they are? Right! Totally possible if he changed his name, moved to another state, works from home, orders groceries to be delivered (and receives it under disguise), uses burner phones to communicate with friends, change his car, etc. But he carries on with his life as per usual...and he doesn't want anyone to know where he lives?!? Ridiculous! I just wish they would think twice before putting out dialogue that seem like absolutes but end up being downright silly.Now, I just wish that Trubel is still Trubel, the loyal to Nick Trubel. It would be great if she had tricked everyone else into believing what they wanted to believe.
