This was a great episode.I like how the main storyline intersected this week. Jamie ever the good guy tried to help the woman that was in trouble but by doing so she gets beat up and ends up in the hospital. Danny and Baez are on the case and soon discover that Jamie tried to help her out. They also find out that Jamie has a bounty on his head for helping the young woman. Jamie is told to do desk duty until they catch the guy but of course he does not want to do that so he and Jenko go about their day and are ambushed by a molotov cocktail while on duty and then Jamie has no choice but to be taken off duty until the killer is arrested. Social media is a good and bad thing. The episode showed how it can be a bad thing: Rutgers not accepting Nicky because of her tweet about her teacher and then her tweet about her grandfather affecting Erin's case (which I think should not be allowed).We did not have twitter in my days in high school and as Erin said a slam book is different than Twitter and as much as there is freedom of speech you have to watch what you say. Nicky's teacher sure is a witch though!Henry still has his old school ways and as much as he should change with the times, he is a stubborn old man and will never change.The family dinner was super intense but even though Frank and Henry had an argument Frank still told his dad that he loved him! Which ended the argument. Sometimes you have to agree to disagree.Earlier Henry revealed to Frank that years ago it was him that someone was after just like someone was after Jaime and he did what he had to do to ensure Frank's safety.LOL about Jamie's apartment. It is not the same one he had last season which was nicer.
When I first watched this episode, I immediately wondered what sort of idiot thinks it's a good idea to throw a Molotov cocktail at a police car, especially in New York. For cryin' out loud, there are about 35,000 police officers on the force there, and every single one of them will be gunning for you. Regarding Nicky's teacher, I've known a large number of Catholic school teachers over the years, from kindergarten to high school, and not one of them behaved the way this woman does! She's getting on her high horse about Nicky's behavior, when she should take a look in the mirror - arrogance, bullying under color of authority, and hypocrisy all rolled into one package. Nice.
A really good episode. What would have made a great episode, fo me, would have been Ellie reopining the bar and having Jordan manage it. I'm holding on to hope it will happen in a future episode.
Such a great episode.I am not sure if I want Ellie to be Steve's love interest. I think a friendship would be way better.Thomas did not sell the book he just told Flippa that because he was on to Jerry and knew that the book was bugged. Therefore leading him to kidnap Jerry.Seriously, why is Scott Caan absent a lot lately? He is either missing or not in the episodes as much as he used to be.It as nice that Steve as able to give Ellie closure and get some closure himself.
Caan is absent because his wife was expecting their first child and the due date coincided with filming so Danny's character was written out temporarily,
bobby is my favorite character so the last episode really got me. i realize this season no one's safe but i hated that they got my bobby elvis! hopefully they'll get him back.

The fact that the heroine (in both forms ) is rendered so powerless bugs me. Audrey has had to be rescued twice in 2 episodes. Really wonder about the whole Nathan-Audrey- Mara thing. Apart from the fact that there already is an Audrey Parker (the brunette) and this separation or rebirth was a result of a trouble which they all want to end, they've talked about Audrey and Nathan being connected and even said Nathan's trouble was the first they thought of etc, so who is Nathan really connected to Audrey or Mara?
Harrison Wells is certainly a ruthless sort, isn't he? I'm going throw in and say that he's a time traveler who is trying to ensure his own existence in the future, and that Barry is an essential part of this. Here's a truly out-there theory: he's Barry and Iris's grandson, Bart Allen!
Okay review. It reads a lot better when you do avoid Liv's choice of a better man between Fitz and Jake and you refrain from your usual Fitz hate diatribe. Both have killed..but I still see Fitz as less cold blooded. Verna, tried to kill him, she was on her death bed, and also...she was going to rat out the Cabal...so Fitz saved Mellie, Liv, Cyrus, and Hollis from Federal prison time. The Plane of course was military duty and come on...you can't really count a Pilot following direct orders from his Commander...So to me Fitz is a good guy at heart and tries to do the right thing...So, I have no doubt that once Fitz finds out the truth he won't kill jake. He didn't kill Jerry. But, he's not innocent when it comes to killing James, 2 innocent women in cold blood...So even if Fitz lets him go...I don't see the monster Cyrus of letting it go. Cyrus is just buying time until it is right to make his move on Jake. I predict the season finale....Jake will die. This episode was meh meh meh...alright. But I have to disagree with you about Mellie. Mellie is very predictable. Like Liv said...let Mellie be Mellie. So, her taking the opportunity to turn her son's death into having some meaning as being a good thing...as keeping her as FLOTUS for four more years, was just the old Mellie coming back. She was elated at the news that her son was murdered. Mellie, who faked an miscarriage, induced labor, celebrated DD death...is always politically motivated. So her reaction is why I feel the most for Fitz. This is the cold woman he had to deal with all these years. And please spare me about her rape...in which she also blackmailed Jerry into striking a deal with so she would keep her mouth close. Whatever it takes to advance her career and life Mellie is down for...so she's very predictable...Her reaction is true to her selfish nature....and I agree...Mellie really was the catalyst for Jake beat down. Fitz was so frustrated at her reaction and not knowing the truth about Jerry's death...he took it out on Jake's face...BTW, Jake was handcuffed...but I still believe Fitz could beat Jake down easily without handcuffs. Have you seen Fitz shirtless? He's buff and have muscles for days....or should I say Tony Goldwyn body is an Adonis...Whew child... "Your boyfriend...your other boyfriend" Cyrus...the king of Shade...HAHA!
Yeah, it took me a while to take in the change of pace of this episode. It's not what we are used to in this series, but I guess that's why this show is so appealing to me - I never know what to expect next! This episode dealt with Steve's feelings toward his father, and the story helped him realize better what his father had been like and how his sending his children away for their safety really cost John McGarrett. It was nice to see Steve come to terms with that part of his past, and I think perhaps it was important for him to reach this understanding before the 100th episode. Great acting by Alex, DDK, Bill Sadler, and Mirrah (Ellie). Looking forward to seeing more of Ellie in future episodes.
