@Dadsh64: No, I stayed away from questions that would reveal spoilers - he wouldn't have answered them anyway. So - anything's possible. I think it's going to be a startling episode though.
That was some great writing for the finale! I truly expected Laurel to be the one to die, because that would cause Tommy to morph into full vendetta man against Oliver. Also - it looks as though Roy is slowly turning into The Robin to Oliver's Batman, doesn't it? There's only one reason I think Malcolm may still be alive: the writers will want Moira to testify against him, and she'll get full immunity so that she can stay in the show. Somehow I doubt Oliver lied to Tommy when he told him he didn't kill Malcolm - especially when Tommy was dying: just doesn't ring true to this character.
@Jim Garner: thanks! I thought that should have been a bigger moment and thought maybe I missed an earlier episode or something. Great that she said it first, too.
The neat thing about Raj suddenly being able to talk with women without alcohol is that, when he's bombed he's usually obnoxious to the point of rudeness. Now he's just Raj with the women - I think that's a plus.
Someone set me straight please. Was this the first time Penny told Leonard that she loved him? And she did it without any sign of discomfort.
Tim: I had the same problem and was going to write about it. Then it occurred to me that people whose lives are in danger might to just about anything to stay alive. Still, the notion that a husband and wife can be convinced to cut each other.....yeah, I had a hard time with it.
Do you think Jamie's crisis of faith is over? I get the feeling that losing his partner is going to gnaw away at him for some time to come. Fascinating episode. And I'm glad it's renewed and we'll see the whole gang back for next season.
WHAT? The series is *cancelled*?
Man that's a huge disappointment. I was getting into it in a big way too. It had lots of potential for more stories. Guess the numbers didn't add up - which is too bad. Had the producers given it a bit more time I'm confident it would have picked up more viewers.
@gatorgal: Vance gave Ziva the unofficial "glance of approval" but never stated anything in so many words. So he has plausible deniability.
@MCAL: I think you're right. Once Bodnar attacked, Ziva was legally in defence mode. TBTB can guess and extrapolate motives 'till the cows come home (he attacked first because he felt threatened by Ziva holding the gun to him without stating he was under arrest; or she didn't have time to state her business before he physically attacked her, etc. etc.) At any rate, there's nothing there for DHS or anyone else hang their hat on. Ziva seems free and clear despite the fact she has a motive for killing him.
I just couldn't get into it. And I really tried. So - this isn't that much of a surprise. I really like Matthew Perry and would have loved to see his series "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" go through a few seasons. That was some amazing stuff. "Go On" - not so much. Felt too plastic. (Best way I can explain it.)
It's always a heartbreak when such compelling drama gets the axe. Love or hate the characters - the writers, actors and directors had the ability to keep viewers glued to the stories each week. Sad to see them go.
