He totally stole the scene, didn't he? Loved that guy!
It was an amazing and sad finale, but it did make a certain sort of sense. Robin had always been front and centre with Ted throughout the series. And we never quite knew why Ted spent the entire time talking about how he met the Mother. This episode wrapped it all up: he was looking for acceptance from his kids for pursuing Robin. We got hints of their dynamic all through the series. Ted going to look for the jewellery, always being there for her, even though they had different paths to take. Basically it's a story of a couple who were friends, then lovers for a while, then friends again while Barney wooed and married her, and then….whatever this turns out to be. Bottom line: the writers likely knew where they were going with the storyline, almost from the beginning. They just forgot to bring us along for the ride - which is why so many of us rightfully hated the ending.
I don't know whether Jane and Lisbon will ever get together, but that final scene with Jane sitting by himself on his couch in the dark was poignant. Maybe it's time for him to start dating again, in ernest, especially now that the Red John case is solved.
I was actually relieved when the Scythe blew up the station. That locale was getting slightly limiting, even claustrophobic. So Julia now heads up Ilaria. Or does she? Maybe those silver-eyed sycophants are part of a resistance team. There are so many possibilities there. It was a great conclusion. I'm looking forward to the next season.
You can still give it those stars. Click on the review link (top right). : )
I take issue with you on two points: 1) that "most fans dislike Bishop". That's just wishful thinking. Those who dislike her are pretty vocal about it - which is fairly normal about any subject or personality. Generally, those who like someone don't feel a pressing need to speak up. 2) That Wickersham has "minimal talent". I'm curious to know what your basis is for that argument. I've gone the acting route myself, and can tell you that from what I've seen, she has a lot of talent. I also know Glasberg would not have hired her if she didn't.
Exactly. More importantly: her process produces results.
The viewing numbers doesn't bear out your statement. Think of it this way: the more people engage in argument about Bishop, the more engagement with the series. That's what I'm seeing anyway.
Just wondering: who else figured out the crossword puzzle answer almost as soon as Brody mentioned it? (Three letter word meaning "to make a mistake")
That's nice, Terri, but in fact I encouraged him to repost this important information as there are I'm sure many people who didn't know the ranking structure at NCIS. I'm grateful he decided to post it at the top, rather than as a reply elsewhere.
