Amazing episode yet again. Cote de Pablo is so beautiful and so talented. She's been beyond phenomenal with this arc. Her pain and vulnerability was palpable. Rock Carroll was insane in the authenticity of his anger and grief. Ducky was so awesome. That grandmother line was unquestionably his BEST line ever. I loved seeing Oded Fehr, even if he was playing a bad guy. MVP of the episode was Tony. His loyalty, concern, reverence for Ziva was beautiful. They've become so intimate that their serious scenes leave me breathless. He's being the Tony I always knew he was, I'm just glad that other fans are seeing what I seen in him since the beginning. I was wondering what he had said. So glad to finally know.
Over her kids. Where the hell was Drew? I do wish we seen more of Camille and Zeeks. I loved seeing Ryan again andhim and amber. Funny, Julia was still coming across as selfish to me. I'm glad she's going through with everything but she's upset that he doesn't tell her he loves her? He's a boy. And 9. And a former foster kid. He wouldn't tell her that anyway. Was it not enough when he wanted her to stay around on his first day of school? Or the appreciative smile when she found him a friend who speaks Spanish? Or his excitement anytime he does well,? I feel like she's not accepting that this all takes time, but maybe after this episode she will. The sweet pep talk Crosby gave her seemed to work, even though he mostly lied and totally told Adam and Kristina the same thing.
Crosby has always been one of my favorite characters on the show. I love that he's not only showing how mature he can be, but he's given that opportunity to show it more. Jasmine I have never been a fan of or her mom and its never more apparent as when they're onscreen together. Renee is too much. She's super judgmental and the resentment she holds against Crosby is ridiculous given the fact that for those first five years he didn't know he had a kid. Its great that she helped jasmine out in the beginning but she didn't have to. Jasmine having balls of steel when she's reaming on Crosby for everything under the sun, but not having them to put her mom in her place or at the very least back up her husband is irritating. She expected him to apologize when there was nothing to apologize for. Sarah's love triangle isn't fair to either guy. It floors me that she's considered some sort of catch. For both men's sake I hope they dump her. Oh and once again she's prioritizing her relationships over her kids. Where the hell was drew?
This was one of my favorite episodes to date! I love that this season they're giving the other characters a chance to shine and show that this show isn't carried by Reeseâ€™s character alone. Fusco, Carter, and Finch especially have really been holding their own! We got badass Finch, badass and vulnerable Carter, adorable and hilarious Fusco ...he did a fantastic job at carrying the humor of the show in this episode where the others were required to be more serious, and we got vulnerable and introspective John. John and Joss have fascinating interactions anyway they're some of my favorite, but this episode was them at their best. Great nuanced performances by Jim and Taraji. I felt like I was intruding on this private conversation and their private moments. A deeper connection than they've ever had. Loved it. The ending truly surprised me with Donnolly and Kara.
Fantastic episode. I love Jackson and Stephanie. April was jerking him around too much and honestly I never cared for Japril as a couple. They were close friends and for so long they had an almost sibling like bond to them. Avery was protective of her in this big brother way as though she were his pesky but sweet, annoying, innocent little sister.The moment sex came into the picture I cringed. Stephanie reminds me a bit of Yang just a little softer and meeker at times which reminds me of the initial interest Jackson had in Yang when he got there. It works for me.Loved Bailey and Ben. Bailey and Webber. He and Grey. Alex and Princess. Yang and Hunt. Everyone was well used. Solid episode and Adeles death was so sad.
INCREDIBLE!!! All I can really say about this episode. Cote de Pablo was amazingness personified. An Emmy worthy performance. How the show becomes better rather than worse with each season is beyond me. Few can pull that off but NCIS is like a fine wine that only gets better with age.
The adult who should know better. His not lashing out at Joel (the kid whisper) isn't solely because he technically isn't replacing anyone, but because God bless him, the man has the patience of a saint and isn't forcing or pushing the kid too much. He disciplines him as fit and they still let him get away with too much, as with Sydney, but he respects the adapting process. So I fully understand Joel 's reaction to Julia considering giving Victor up. Especially given all the sacrifices he's made over the years.Sara is so out of touch with her children its sad. She's one of those parents who grew up with her kids. They raised each other. Sometimes its good, most times its unfortunate. Mark knew her son better than she did because she's too caught up in her love life. Loved Adam&Kristina. Felt bad for Crosby. Not a Renee fan since the despicable way she treated him when they met. Fantastic episode though.:)
Working and can't handle any of it now that she isn't because she's never had too. She has YET to have a real talk with him that isn't coming across as selfish! She's pissed and hurt that he doesn't call her mom and wants to see his real one. He was doing fine and adjusting quite well until she told him he couldn't see his mother without explaining why, dismissed the mother he's known for the first part of his life as nothing and insisted that he was hers now because she signed papers. She's trying to fast forward a transition that takes years, strip him of part of his identity, and she isn't taking the time to explain why. He's lashed out since then, and understandable so. He's old enough to remember and miss his birth mom...Julia's inadvertently trying to force him to forget and let her go. It's too selfish for words, and now that she can't hack it she's considering "returning" or "exchanging "him. Its irresponsible on her part because shes
No one is condoning Victor's behavior at all. It frustrates me that because he's having difficulties adapting the assumption is made that he has mental issues. What is that. Here's the problem, Victor is difficult that is without question but Julia has been handling this all wrong from the beginning. As someone who has studied child development and psychology and has personal experience with watching my own parent deal with a real troubled and mentally unsound child, I cringe at Julia. She has never been cut out for motherhood. She struggles with it in a gripping way that's reflective of the modern day working woman. She could barely manage Sydney. So when she expressed wanting another I was surprised.Her expectation that he was supposed to come in perfect and blend in instantly was RIDICULOUS and too naive for such a smart woman! Adopting a kid at that age takes work,time, and patience. She never had any of that when she was
@Ginger that wasn't Cora. That was the Blue Fairy /Nun that Leroy /Grumpy loved. I thought it was Cora for a split second too when I seen it.:)
