Great minds Gigi, great minds....
Now THAT was what I wanted. The writers finally amp'd up the intrigue and resolved this storyline, relegating the medical stuff to the background. It reminded me of "The Sting" and the "reveal" made me applaud. Well played guys!!!!
Grey, I think you hit upon something with "Divmiah"; I propose a slight variation: "Div-Emiah". Looks strange, but I think it needed a vowel sound in the middle.
When this show first aired, there was heavy emphasis on the "medical mystery" angle. Then they added the whole "Boris von Mysterioso" thing and that upped the intrigue. Now they're thrown so much else into the mix (Evan and Paige's romance/marriage, Symphony, Evan's running for office, Paige's internship, Divya's pregnancy) that the medical stuff has been diluted out.
THANK YOU Mickey...I wondered about Keller's marital status too. You could drive a semi through that plot hole. :-)
Meanwhile, there was some SERIOUS douchebaggery goin' on. Keller's "negotiation skills", Evan pestering Hank while he's on the phone and acting like a total philistine about the art (and yes, I saw the ending coming...it was no doubt visible from space) ....
Kudos to Jeremiah for not blowing a head vein over the mess in the kitchen....and returning Divya's plant to the kitchen.
I'm with the reviewer on the Boris/Milosh thing....speed it up boys, the audience is nodding off.
I'm glad to see that Stock Character 43, the wholly unattractive angry environmentalist, is still alive and well. :-)
We have just lost cabin pressure!!!
OK, last observation and then I'll (do my best to) shut up...
Did anyone notice how the conductor (Santi) bears more than a passing resemblance to Rafa? Makes me wonder if this'll be part of a story arc for Divya.
zagsffan, I think the disjointed nature is because they keep throwing more and more secondary characters at us as a smokescreen.
1. The cop and his brat of a daughter now seem to be story arc of their own.
2. That Shelby character who wants to buy HankMed wasn't on this week, though she may appear next week.
3. Blythe Ballard made an appearance this week, but I don't believe she was on last week.
4. Paige's internship created a new arc with a new character (her boss).
5. As you alluded to, Boris and Milosz didn't appear in this ep and we saw Marisa last week after several episodes (the show's hiatus notwithstanding) of not seeing her.
P.S. Was glad to see the writers work,in some classical music and art. Makes things less vapid ( despite the presence of Mr. and Mrs. Contrasting Cardigan *aaaaaaaaack* *gaaaaaaaaaaaag*)
I agree with the reviewer that certain plot elements/story arcs were conspicuous by absence , but I found the conductor's ailment kinda interesting--certainly less conventional than an infection or some such (like sarcoidosis, which BTW, was ALWAYS a potential diagnosis on "House"--that, or amyloidosis).
Meanwhile, I'm confused about Mr. Migraine. I thought migraines were debilitating--bedridden-in-a-silent-dark-room kinda debilitating. How's this guy up and about in bright coastal sunlight?
As for Molly, could just be my age which has me tolerating younger people less and less, but I dislike her character, and "threatening" Hank makes me DETEST her.
As much as I like this show, this particular ep was a snoozer, most likely because there was no "caper of the week" to latch on to. The elements of this ep appear to be a setup for punchlines that will come in future eps.
As for the cliffhanger in this ep, I'm pretty sure there'll be some kinda twist--like the one where Briggs pointed a gun at Mike.
Meanwhile, where's that other guy--the dude investigating the illegal bird ring who found ammo instead?
