Castle Season 7 Episode 16 Review: The Wrong Stuff

I liked this episode. It was fun. I do not want Martha to move out. I like her. Alexis can go, she really has no purpose right now. I also think she should show more affection to Kate. She should at least CALL her Kate instead of Beckett. That is the two leads "thing".

NCIS Los Angeles Season 6 Episode 16 Review: Expiration Date

Why did they killed of Thapa, he was a awesome character and he will be missed - And like someone below wrote, he was the best recurring guest characters on this show.
But the same person is wrong about the lack of chemistry between Kensi and Deeks in this episode. The best part was the interaction between the Three, talk about priceless moments. A very action packed episode from start to finish, and a little struggle with relationship but it was averted thanks to Thapa solid advice he gave. I knew Sam would make, so it was hard to work up some emotion about it.

I was sorry they killed him too! I thought his friendship with Deeks was an unusual twist in a show like that and their relationship was fun and interesting.

Nothin to do with the show. but i hope Kensi and Deeks work it out. I'm more interested in Callan's romance

Chasing Life Season 1 Episode 17 Review: Model Behavior

What is up with Sara and the bearded lawyer? Why did she break up with George? I thought that she loved George even from before she was married. Was just because her mom did not like George? It seems to me that George was the better brother.

Yes, that could be. But, when they walked in the gate ,there were a few other people. So, your contention is that there are just about 5 people in there? Possible, but it took many more hands to build the walled community. Anything is possible - which is why it will be hard to wait for next Sunday! 8-)

The Mentalist Series Finale Review: The Perfect Wedding

Before this site goes away I want to say a big thank you to Christine Orlando. You have
always done an outstanding job with your reviews and managing this site. It will be
hard to get used to the fact that there will be no more The Mentalist reviews, etc. I have gotten a lot of enjoyment from reading posts on this site and have even posted a small amount myself. I hope to run into some of the faithful posters here. Rationalgal2 and Anitraward1 to name a couple......Also some newer folks that are very interesting too. The finale, for me, was bittersweet. Loved that I have been able to watch all the episodes leading up to it and sad that it had to end. I especially enjoyed the last scenes of the finale. During those times I could have sworn I could see the real Simon Baker shining through like a beacon. He is such an excellent actor/father/family man/humble human being. It was as though he dug in those memories and let them out. Whew.....makes the tears just thinking about it. I will follow him in his career which will continue to be awesome, but my heart will always know him as Patrick Jane.....The Mentalist. He pretty much said that in an interview with Larry King. He understands that he will always be known as "that guy who was The Mentalist. Onward, Simon Baker......gotta know your mom is proud of you! I'll sure be watching you! PS wouldn't you love to see him in a project speaking in his natural manner......Australian? I would love it.

The Mentalist Round Table: A Happy Ending

There's been a few questions about why Lisbon waited until the wedding to announce the pregnancy. I'm going with the theory that she just discovered it, plus, once Jane told her the serial killer was alive, she knew how protective he would be if he knew she was pregnant. Jane would never have allowed the wedding to be used as bait for a killer if he knew Lisbon was pregnant. So she waited for the danger to be over and gave him a great wedding gift.
One quick question: When Patrick was in Mexico, didn't he remove his wedding ring or did he only look at it? I remember a scene when he was staring at it, but I thought he removed it.

@ Kim

Exactly. I thought that scene when he showed her the house was all a miscommunication. In his own mind, he had made the most important decision and step forward for their future, but didn't say it the right way. Didn't say it at all, I think he made it out as if it was something to do with his time. I thought that look he gave her when he waved his hand around said it all how excited he was, but I think she thought he was a bit nuts and it was a huge swingback from the prior week of driving off in the Airstream. But the good news is it set him up to understand that she wanted to commit to him but he needed to go about it all a different way. Anyways- like you said I think this scene needed to happen and was not the pregnancy talk was a natural follow up to the emotional rollercoaster TL must have been on with his leaving and returning via arrest warrant not on his own accord. After they got engaged and in all the excitement of planning and happiness and focus on each other, no way she'd have kept the pregnancy from him. So I am thinking she took a test the morning of the wedding, and saved the great news for the right moment that day!

I think that scene at the cabin had a two-fold purpose. Like you stated, Jane believed that purchasing the property was a sign of his commitment, whereas, Teresa had a fear that someday Jane was going to leave her. I think this is the reason why she refused to leave her job. If she quit and Jane eventually left, she would be left with nothing. This insecurity that PJ would leave is also why she questioned him about still wearing his wedding ring. She thought he still felt married to his first wife. It wasn't until he proposed that Lisbon finally understood that he loved her and was in it for the long haul. I think the cabin was also a way for him to occupy his time as he took a leave of absence from the FBI while he pondered what job he wanted in the future.

He did! He took it off to go to dinner and dancing with Kim. It was more than just a passing scene. He stood at his mirror getting ready and then toyed with what to do about the ring and took it off. Then they came back to his apartment after he'd been drinking and got beaten up. She was helping him clean up and she noticed it there on the bedside table - she said nothing, but it gave her pause. Also, when he went to dinner with Kristina Frye in one of the early seasons (2 or 3?) he went to the men's room and just looked at it, but in a way that made you think he was really struggling with whether to take it off, but he didn't. That was one of the reasons that it surprised me at first that it wasn't addressed early on after he confessed his love to Lisbon. BUT, I later felt like it was sweet, almost, that in the other cases he felt like he should take it off, but with Lisbon, she accepted him with his past and all - it was a part of him. After watching Brown Shag Carpet and seeing Lisbon question him about it, maybe my thinking was wrong all along. Or, maybe not, maybe Lisbon just wanted to know for sure and hear it from Patrick. Or, maybe she knew she was pregnant and with him running away she felt their whole future was in doubt and she had to ask about the ring to further solidify his commitment. As for the pregnancy announcement I like your theories. But, I think doubt after he ran away, doubt about their future also might have played into it. The proposal and wedding erased that - making her feel like the time was right. I am happy with the insight we were given, and could theorize all day about what we weren't told. There is a part of me that would LOVE to know when she found out, how long she knew, if she knew when he was away or found out after he proposed, if she was worried or excited about telling Jane and what their conversation was that night after the wedding.....i.e, when's the due date??!!

@ Elizabeth M

Thanks. I thought he had taken the ring off, but it was never mentioned again. Maybe he could take it off with Kim, but not with Lisbon, because his feelings weren't involved. He knew that with Lisbon, his taking off the ring would be a statement of commitment and moving forward. He finally concluded that loving Lisbon didn't mean forgetting his wife and daughter, simply that the ring now connects both relationships.

@ Elizabeth M

Maybe as time went on it got harder and harder to take off the ring. He'd considered it or even done it briefly in the past, but after that it became as he said 'something i'm used to' - or just an important part of himself, that he'd feel naked without. It became a huge deal for him to take it off, a big mental hurdle, even his friend Pete mentioned it and he changed the subject. I thought pulling the ring into the proposal was very sweet, and in any other case would seem a bit creepy to propose to a woman with the ring of your deceased wife but considering all they'd been through with his hunt for RJ and working to get
over his past and fears of living/guilt....then I'd say it was very special for him to give it to her/share it with her. It also goes with the 'look on the bright side theme' - that the ring represented many things but could be thought of as a positive in that from tragedy was love/life. I am assuming that her asking about the ring is what inspired him to propose in that way. Her hesitation about his commitment made him realize that maybe he was not clear enough about his intentions to want to spend his life with her. Later in the episode she acted surprised he would buy her another ring but he just said that his wedding ring is for 'us' and she needed her own ring. I was glad to see she got such a gigantic rock! Not really her conservative style, but now he can see her from a distance and say - that is my wife with that gigantic sparkly rock on there! She deserves it for waiting so darn long!!

I've tossed this around in my had many times - when she found out about the pregnancy. And I am sticking with the idea that she found out literally the day of the wedding and told him after the wedding but that was the first time she had to tell him alone. Some have said that she knew when she asked about the ring, but I don't think that came from pregnancy knowledge, I think that was a response to his sort of flippant replies when she confronted him if he would run away or if he was committed. In his own mind he was 100% sure that he wanted a life with her, but was not communicating well. He was bowled over by the land and house and thought that when she saw it she would have the same epiphany! So when he gave really short answers, she got a bit annoyed and pushed the envelope by bringing up the ring. Also, later she apologized an back pedaled on the ring issue which she would not have done in my view if pregnancy knowledge was there.
Perhaps also from a romantic point of view I like to think that she said Yes to marriage without knowledge of the baby. And I like to think she would share that kind of Huge news right away and not sit on it for awhile with uncertainty. Also Jane is so perceptive how long could she hold back that news?
It is fun - that the show has left us with this mystery! I guess we can all make up in our heads how their 'happily ever after' will work out -and think about these small details that are important - and have our own ideas!

@ Jessica

I agree. I think she just realized it shortly before the wedding. In my opinion, I think her asking about the ring is totally unrelated to a pregnancy. If you're in love with someone, but they're still wearing a wedding ring, it's natural to wonder if they are truly committed to the relationship. I think Lisbon just needed reassurance that he was ready to move forward with her and wouldn't suddenly back out of the relationship.

@ Kim

True, her job has always been the thing that kept her going and was always there for her no matter what. When she couldn't rely on other people in her life. I do think that building a home with his own hands will be important for PJ, it is part of the new life he wants to make and commitment he feels. But I do think he'll go back to working with Teresa eventually. The two of them were always sort of addicted to each other and the push and pull of that relationship through all the years mostly as a platonic relationship is what made the show so great. He'll miss the mental stimulation and the chase, but mostly he'll miss working with her. They were always fiercely loyal to each other above all despite her need to play by the book at work in every other way, and his desire for revenge. There are countless examples of this. I recall a few times people asking Lisbon if she was motivated by the job, or by PJ and she said the two are part of each other. And even the whack job Lorelei pushed PJ about why he does what he does - and part of it is to be with TL. So its impossible for me to imagine they don't go on working together. Maybe the exact nature of it changes but I don't think they can spend their days apart and catch up over dinner every night. They are not that kind of couple.

I agree with you that he will probably rejoin the FBI. It's the best use of his skills. Although I can picture him being a consultant to corporations that are dealing with espionage, too. I can't see him leaving the FBI though if Lisbon is still there.
You mentioned that Teresa needs to play by the book, but that changed somewhat with the killing of Red John. She pulled a gun on the FBI to allow Patrick to get away and catch RJ. Lisbon must have known that Jane wouldn't take RJ alive, but I think she realized that not everything is black and white. There are shades of gray. PJ devoted himself to avenging his family's murder and Lisbon eventually supported that.
The old Lisbon would have said that if RJ surrendered, RJ had to be taken alive, but now she realized that Patrick had to see this through. She never asked him what happened that day, probably because her law and order self doesn't want to know. One thing that is for sure, is that no relationship was possible while RJ was loose. Remember that he had Lorelei convinced he cared, but she was only a means to an end. We saw this when he found her body. His sole focus was getting Red John and there wasn't a lot of his heart left to share with someone until he got rid of RJ.
Finally, after Jane's upbringing and his lack of a home all through this series, it's rather sweet that he's building a home for Lisbon (and now the baby). That gesture alone really should have shown her how committed he was to the relationship. As Solitaire4 said above, Patrick was putting down roots for the first time in a long time.

Thanks, you helped me say what I was trying to say just better! Lisbon did play by the book, in everything except trying to help Jane either in the RJ quest or support and trust him in sometimes what might appear crazy plans for crime solving. Likewise he was so focused on getting RJ that even when other people were discarded he didn't care...however when Lisbon was at risk he did draw the line. So - they had a personal code but made exceptions for each other. It was great to watch in my opinion because their partnership at work seemed to sustain pretty much anything. They seemed sort of addicted to each other. And it was such a complex interesting relationship that thankfully took an even better turn at the end of S6 and of course S7 because clearly they know each other better than anyone and were soulmates first in the office then personal.
Anyways all of this is what makes me believe they'll both continue to solve mysteries. Your idea of corporate espionage sounds interesting, maybe less dangerous? Hard to say when money at stake things are dangerous. Obviously Jane would be lost without Lisbon, he had her recalled to TX and I think if she would have gone to DC he would have abandoned the FBI almost immediately as soon as he could. She supports him and facilitates all that he does. And I think she'll find that it is way too boring without him. She has learned so much from him and in S7 you could really see her come into her own in reading people and manipulating people just like Jane does. I think she enjoyed her work more than even in S7 especially in the early episodes where they were just having too much fun all day.
There is the hurdle of personal risk, but I am sure they will get over it. Jane seems to have convinced himself to have faith in good things so hopefully he will not be at all paralyzed by fear anymore. I think he will look at the bright side or at least try to all the time....
