Even though I read the books (a long time ago), Joffrey's death came as a shock. My money's on Oberyn, who has sworn revenge. The thing is: the agent of poison might not have been the wine, but the pie or whatever it is he was munching on. Did you notice that right after Joffrey cleaved the dessert with his sword, the camera swung back to the food, only for a moment? This show is not known for making mistakes or having continuity or edit problems. Each act is deliberate and has meaning.
I don't understand your anger. Criminal Minds has always featured a back story on one or more of their characters, littered through through the series every season. Nothing's changed, and it hasn't become a soap opera. As for JJ having authority on matters of the heart - she is first and foremost Morgan's friend. Friends have the authority to speak on what they know to their friends, even if it might not be initially accepted. I think their inter-reaction here was as real as it gets. JJ's not advising "a man" as you put it - she's talking with Morgan, her friend. Fair weather friends might not tell you the truth, but real friends will. I get the sense you just don't like JJ, period.
Is it me or are the writers failing to bring a decent end to the latest episodes of BBT? The last episode ended with Sheldon unable to decide between getting the XBoxOne or the PS4. This one ended with a question mark too. No matter how great the episode might be, you have to end on a strong note.
@MrWriteSF: the story narrative doesn't say for sure, but I suspect Delilah's boss was not one of the decision makers in this. I get the sense she was likely following orders. But if you're right and she was fully complicit, absolutely she should go. However, none of that mitigates the fact that Delilah herself didn't behave as she should have, and work within the system. The thing that bugs me more than anything else: I *like* Delilah, and hate what the writers did with her here. She's not a rogue and shouldn't have been written as such in this episode.
As a supervisor, I would be the first to agree with you that supervisors are not always right. (I'd hate to work for one who suggested otherwise). However, the omnipotence, or rather, the competence of her supervisor is not the issue here. As I said in the review, this is not the average workplace. This is an intelligence facility, where adherence to the chain of command is crucial, and primary to the success of operations. If I were her boss, I'd have no choice but to get her out and away from my team, whether by firing her, or (more likely) by having her transferred. There would be zero tolerance for what she did.
You may very well be right on that. I don't know. The thing that really got me going was the fact there were no consequences for Delilah's clear subordination. As Gibbs says "I can't work with someone I can't trust". She broke her supervisor's trust.
Did I say otherwise? From my review: As for the story, I'm actually glad they never caught the Unsub. In fact, once JJ assured Blake that he had to be dead - I mean, they shot at least thirty bullets into the water and in fact Rossi had to reload - you knew right away that he wasn't. Of course, this means we haven't seen the last of this Unsub, whose name we never learned.
I get the distinct impression you didn't read the last two paragraphs of my review.
Thanks for that. I've never seen any of them. At any rate, he's a great actor.
Thank you for your note, Audrey. Can't believe I missed that word. : )
