@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.

Wolfshades

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.

Wolfshades

Thanks for that. I've never seen any of them. At any rate, he's a great actor.

Wolfshades

Thank you for your note, Audrey. Can't believe I missed that word. : )

Looks like Wynn Duffy may have bought the farm, now that the Mexicans know he lied about Boyd. Too bad too - because that's a beautiful name. : ) For a long time I've hated the idea of keeping Ava in prison but right now things just turned interesting: not only does she have that gang after her, the entire prison thinks she's a snitch. My prediction: she'll end up killing her nemesis in the joint, right before Raylan comes through with the promised protection.

Wolfshades

What do you mean by 21C?

Wolfshades

I can't wait for that spinoff too. In fact, having never been to New Orleans - I've now put it on my bucket list. All because of these two episodes.
