I think you'd be wrong, Terrie. It's just too risky - all you need to do is be caught once, and it's at least a firing offence. It's kind of like saying most retail employees have shoplifted merchandise from their store at least once.

Man this show was boring. The guys tried to parse out a dead guy's life - one we've never met and to whom we are therefore not invested. Boring. Sheldon and his "fun with flags" nonsense (even if it might be the last one). Boring. The Bernadette as mean girl one had the potential to be interesting, but it faded out too fast too. (And correct me I'm wrong, but wasn't she intimated by Penny, who used to be somewhat of a school bully?) Ugh. This one kind of stunk for me.

OMG I can't believe you said that. You really think she would have been better off with a filthy disgusting child molester than being alone? Wow.

Scheduling conflict.

If you listened to her closely, she said nothing wrong. JJ said "we have evidence to support" - before telling the wife exactly what they found. She wouldn't have been terminated - and let's face it, they needed the wife's help in figuring out who exactly would want to kidnap or harm him.

I have to back you up on that one, ebau. Whenever a sensational story idea like this comes up, it's just a damned good idea for the writers to research the hell out of it first before going forward. It's easy to imagine how it happened: they bring it to GG, everyone gets all enthusiastic, and they just create the story. I mean, every time someone says something outlandish and crazy about liberals or conservatives in the political discussion forums I frequent, the first thing I ask is: how do you know it's true? Have you checked? And then right after I do just that, and usually come back with confirmation of a hoax, straight from snopes. It just makes good sense to do the research. I'm sure they could've come up with something just as entertaining had they done so. Maybe they could have made the police sergeant just a tad ignorant, and evolved the story from there.

That's a great theory, Az fan. Never thought of it - but you could be right. The other thing I wondered about was the type of flowers Abby received. At first I thought they might have been black dahlias (which would have put an interesting spin on her mindset) but then landed on black roses - pictured below. The choice is still quite metal for her, appealing both to her as a woman and as a goth.

That's exactly the name of the episode - I linked to it in the review, by the way. Strictly speaking, her behavior in that episode was worthy of disbarment - the only reason the story worked and she retained her standing as a lawyer was that she wasn't caught.

This Bishop lover won't. I'm happy that Gibbs finally put his foot down about that. He's there to lead, not accommodate. (Though frankly, as her boss, I'd have been okay with her sitting on the floor or on top of her desk to process. But that's me, and I'm not in the military, so….)

Disagree with you about Bishop - I've loved her from the start. (Which isn't a surprise to anyone, I know). I emphatically agree with you about the science types on these shows, however. Sebastian Lund just bugs the heck out of me. He's trying to pull off cute or quirky, and failing miserably. Bring back the keyboardist - now there's an M.E. assistant I can get on board with!
