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.:)
-I basically love anytime they banter. Miller and Liu have a great chemistry and the partnership has really been hitting its stride. Loved the final scene when she told him she already had a job lined up.-It was stronger than previous plots despite being kind of cliche.-Watson needs more depth but I'd rather it be with Sherlock. Like that final scene when he waited with her for her ex or dinner with her family.-Both definitely. He'd never want to admit that he's come to care for her or that he likes her around and he sees that she's good at investigating and genuinely likes it.- He'll reluctantly admit he wants her around after she leaves and she'll reluctantly realize that she wants to keep working with him after she starts working with someone else.
I enjoyed it. I agree about the pacing and some of the reveals but I chalk that up to pilotitus. Ill keep watching.
I'm probably the only fan of this show that actually likes Angelo. I hate that everyone is determined to make him out to be this horrible person, and I've yet to see anything that supports that. He's entitled to not divulge some information. He had a right to request a DNA test and not share it with anyone until he knew the truth. Toby was wrong to disclose his information like that. And John Kennish will forever be a pompous, self righteous, colossal jackass. I've detested some of the ways he's treated and talked about Angelo and Regina both. Not a fan of the Kennish parents at all. Daphne still being hung up on Jeff was annoying and the way she treated Travis especially knowing his home life was despicable! Loved Melody's speech to her! Gave me goosebumps. Felt bad for Bay but she'll do well at Carlton.
Episodes like this show how strong the entire cast is. Yes I definitely missed seeing Reese more but Michael Emerson was incredible as usual. Plus I relish the opportunities when they show just how awesome Carter and Fusco can be too. They're more than just the asset on the other end of the phone. They're characters with their own stories and development. The shift in dynamic and Carter's perception of justice should be noted. This despite its subtleties was a defining moment for her character and next week looks to be too. She and Fusco are essential characters that require just as much development, not plot devices.And Finch is a strong enough character to lead, he was due that after the first few episodes of the season. I love that they don't wrap things up quickly, makes it real, gritty, and intense. Loved the episode.
