First decent episode this season IMO; Hank and his staff being clever and improvising was what hooked me on this show so I'm glad we got to see that; hopefully there'll be more of that instead of this "family fluff." Meanwhile, what's with this therapist who apparently has some SERIOUS boundary issues of his own? And why are Evan and Paige finding excuses to talk with him about every little "breakthrough?"

AMEN!!!!!! The whole "MacGuyver of Medicine" aspect's been diluted out and we're left with this fluffy family "intrigue." If you're gonna go for intrigue, Boris' storyline seems a lot more appropriate for that, yet he's nowhere to be seen, although..... ...Hank did leave a message for Boris about Monte Carlo and the promo for next week's ep does show Hank away from the Hamptons so MAYBE next week will be a tad more interesting.

Briggs DID say it wasn't a good idea--that was the bit about dealers acting like field mice that retreat back into their hidey-hole when they sense something's wrong; that's when Mike asked Briggs to tag along. Afterward, Paige told Mike they were moving too fast. She may not have laid blame directly at Mike's feet (HELLOOOOO...she's sleeping with him!!!!!), but the perception is still there.
(Paige) could have had her hand stabbed by him any of the times she went to see him. I'm not sure I agree. Briggs' theory was right--Paige deviated from her usual MO and the dealer got suspicious. Instead of showing up alone and buying a few grams like she usually does without getting stabbed, she shows up with a stranger who wants a kilo and she did that because Mike pushed her to. THAT got her stabbed.
I agree. Mike's become quite imperious, and now he's shitting where he eats on BOTH coasts. This can't end well. Good thing he's pretty. :-) BTW, is that it for the new guy?
SMH..... Is this what this show has become? Some lowbrow soap opera in a highbrow enclave? Two boys named Judd and Nelson? Seriously? Paging John Hughes..... I fear this show may be circling the drain.
Mike with Paige seems like a dangerous move. He's the team leader now--shouldn't shit where you eat. "But what about Charlie and Briggs?" you say. Well, I guess it's kinda the same thing, but Charlie and Briggs both live there; in 8 weeks, Mike goes back to DC so where does that leave Paige if they do hook up? Won't end well.

Jakes' looking at apartments for him and his son threw me. Is Jakes "allowed" to live elsewhere? Does this mean he'll be quitting the Graceland crew?
Well, apart from the "medical case of the week", which is what drew my interest in this series to begin with, it was a pretty lackluster beginning to a new season IMO. The repeated flashbacks nearly made me reach for the Dramamine, and I could have done without seeing Bethenny Frankel who's apparently "too cool" for a theme party these days. And while I won't spoil it, the big build-up as to Emma's identity was just silly. I think we ALL know who she is by now--the melodramatic cliffhanger was unnecessary.
Saw this ep as a re-run and while I remembered it, and enjoyed it, you have to do some considerable suspending of disbelief to view it. How doe a guy THAT ugly get a girlfriend THAT attractive? Danny and Grace just up and fly to Japan? The Japanese people just HAPPEN to speak English?
