I dunno...he looked pretty happy to me.

Agreed. Much of Stopes' success was with the cervical cap, or what we now know to be the diaphragm. I guess that back then, women didn't need to be measured for one like they do today.

But....but...how did Sheldon fit on Penny's couch? "There once a was a man from Cornwall..."

That's possible. If Baitfish did Sasha's bidding at the park, then maybe Baitfish bombed his own house so he could fake his own death, and the payday was to help him disappear and keep him quiet. That works.

Enjoyable episode that left us wondering. Looks like they decided to do another "guest appearance" ep next week; Diane Neal will reprise her role as the CGIS team lead and work with NCIS: NO. I was hoping they were done using that tactic this season, but I guess not.

This struck me as a "jukebox" episode--they pieced elements of previous episodes together to create a new storyline. There's the copycat crime scenes, Diane's being murdered a la Kate, even the getting-caught-on-the-couch-with-an-ex-wife plot device was copied (and BTW, why was Diane so miffed? You'd think she would appreciate how difficult it was for Fornell to have seen her in the same scene with McGee). Diane's murder came as A. COMPLETE. SURPRISE. I had a nanosecond of surreal denial thinking "No.....that didn't happen (denial). Gibbs was foreshadowing what MIGHT happen if he didn't act quickly (surreal). I was saddened to learn that I was wrong. Although Diane's death was just like Kate's, they didn't have Diane "haunting" Gibbs in autopsy the way Kate did. Despite the circumstances, I would have enjoyed one last round of banter instead of the flashback montage. There were a few things that didn't quite work, which other posters have pointed out so I won't rehash. Nonetheless, this was one the best eps so far this season and I enjoyed it a lot. Oh...and as an aside, I was also disappointed by the absence of a review for NCIS: LA. The reviewer of the last couple of episodes had taken over from someone else and I wonder if the new reviewer isn't working out...or maybe just taking an extended holiday...or perhaps TV Fanatic knows something about the show that we don't..or don't want to ponder (eg, pending cancellation). Oh well *sigh*

Empire Preview: Who are the Major Players?

LOVE me some Taraji Henson, but I've seen Howard in other TV shows and he's a giant Christmas ham. Even in the photo above, he's overacting!!!!! Then there's the gay son which is gonna lead to stereotyping and homophobia....no thanks.

Hon, go sell "crazy" someplace else. We don't keep that in inventory.

I have the exact same theory about the daughter being the mastermind--Sasha is her name. With her siblings and cousins either dead or in jail, any profits from restarting the family business are hers and hers alone. Consider: 1. She WAS going to give Frank money, a passport and transport out of the country so we were led to believe she had the means to help. Now, she may not have had the means, but she still helped put him away. 2. She came to Pride and told him about her conversation with Baitfish--SHE'S the one who prompted Pride to drive to see him so SHE could have planted the bomb at Baitfish's house with the intent of killing Pride AND Baitfish (who was a "loose end"). However, as the reviewer says, Baitfish got a payday even though Pride wasn't killed--why would Sasha do that...unless MAYBE she was working with somebody...like the Steven Weber character who may have just wanted to SCARE Pride a bit and needed to keep his hands clean for political reasons? I dunno...seems like a stretch, but it seems like anything is possible in NCIS land.
