Agent Stahl had to turn in his badge, Bianchi’s girlfriend tried to play Wozniak one last time and lost, and there was a little dog in need of a home on Shades of Blue Season 2 Episode 10.
Below, TV Fanatics Stacy Glanzman, Jasmine Blu, and Christine Orlando are here to discuss Stahl’s fascination with Miguel’s tooth, Wozniak’s latest killing spree, and what should happen to that Jack Russell Terrier after “Whoever Fights Monsters.”
What do you think Stahl can do with the tooth, even if he does prove it is Miguel’s?
Stacy: As I said last week, I honestly don't think he can prove anything. It's just a tooth. It doesn't prove he's dead. It doesn't prove he's been murdered. It doesn't prove Harlee had anything to do with how it got there.
Sure, it's suspicious, but so far he has nothing that will hold up in a court of law. Anything he can come up with at this point would be purely circumstantial.
Jasmine: It is circumstantial, and given the fact that he had to turn in his gun and badge, he's not operating with any sort of authority or anything else. It doesn't prove much, but I'm sure he'll find a way to use it to his advantage even if he's operating outside of the law. It's Stahl. He creates ways to cause hell.
Christine: Yeah, I think the only thing he can do now is use it to make Harlee’s life hell, and he’ll do that by manipulating Cristina. At this point, he’s just out for revenge in any way he can get it.
Were you expecting Woz to kill Bianchi’s girlfriend? Was there another option?
Stacy: I wasn't expecting it, but it also didn't really surprise me. He's unhinged after what happened to Nate, and he is dead set on revenge.
Jasmine: Actually, I was. When it came down to it, he probably didn't have much choice. It's something he still would have done without the whole unhinged revenge thing.
Christine: I jumped when I heard the gunshot, but I’ll admit that it made sense. She just would have ran back to Bianchi and told him everything, then they’d never get his box of dirty secrets.
Did you feel any sympathy for Agent Stahl when they suspended him indefinitely and took his badge?
Stacy: Nope, none at all. How can anyone sympathize with this guy? He brought this all on himself, and he deserves a whole lot worse.
Jasmine: Not in the slightest. I agree with Stacy. I can't muster up an ounce of sympathy for someone who has proven to be a jackass to his very core.
Christine: The job was all he had, but no, I don’t feel sorry for him. He used to have a wife, and son, and a partner and he’s systematically lost them all through his own obsessions and horrible choices. Stahl is arrogant, and cruel, and sleazy, and he had this coming to him.
Should Woz keep the dog?
Stacy: That dog was so cute! With all the craziness in his life right now, and considering his house was just shot up, it's probably not the best environment for a dog. But, it would be pretty adorable to see Woz bond with the puppy, so I'm definitely not against it. Maybe he'll give it to Christina.
Jasmine: OMG the dog was so precious! I think my favorite moment was when he walked out with it. I think he should keep it and let Linda take care of it. She needs a little company with everything that has been going on.
Christine: Whatever happened to that dog Woz found in the alleyway and brought home in Shades of Blue season 1? As much as Woz loves dogs, I’m not sure the timing is right for him to have a pet to take care of. It would only end up being something else for his enemies to threaten or shoot.
Was there anything in “Whoever Fights Monsters” that disappointed you?
Stacy: Yes, I couldn't believe Harlee wouldn't go investigate the noise she heard! I know she was in the middle of something, but with all the danger in their lives, you would think she would have gone to check it out.
Also, I noticed it looked like her back healed incredibly fast from the cuts she supposedly received from the broken windows.
Jasmine: Yeah, there is nothing that annoys me more than someone hearing the strange noise and just ignoring it. With everything that is going on, how does she not think to go look? She should always be on high alert. Plus, she knows Stahl has been in her house before, too. The hot boyfriend and sexy times can wait.
Christine: How about Harlee gets some new locks! Stahl, Miguel, it seems like these guys are able to waltz in and out of her place at will. She’s a cop for goodness sake, you’d think she’d take her home security a little more seriously.
What was your favorite quote or scene from Shades of Blue Season 2 Episode 10?
Stacy: I liked the scene in the hospital when Woz talked to Nate while he was sleeping. It was really touching, even if Nate didn't hear it.
Jasmine: That got me in the feels too, Stacy. I liked Woz taking the dog. The circumstances were unfortunate, but there was something about this gruff guy carrying this little dog that had me giggling.
Christine: Woz kissing the dog on the head after killing its owner just made the entire episode for me. It describes Woz perfectly. He’s a complete conundrum. What will Stahl do with the DNA results? Can the crew take Bianchi down? And will the little dog be back?
