I'm completely blown away by this excellent start to the season too. And I really appreciate that the writers didn't play cat-and-mouse (much) with Vogel. Instead of spending several episode with Dexter trying to figure out if she's there for the serial murder case or for him. Now we know. It's for him, but as Matt said: what's the exact deal? I'm really intrigued about her presence and can't wait to see more.
Got it! Thanks!
Thanks cat! (I knew that and was even thinking it but ended up writing "apartment" instead. Go figure.)
The explanation for Sean's estrangement - that Hotch gave up on him after he missed out on Hayley's funeral - was a little light. However, it was enough to satisfy me, I think. I'm just glad the writers brought him back, even if only for the one episode.
What struck me too was the understanding nature of Jack when Hotch complained about not bring able to be there with him.
Thanks for the corrections Kim and Sue Ann. All fixed now.
Holy crap, Jim. That's one hell of a teaser! Joe Mantegna's tease on this was less firm - he only barely hinted at it. Can't wait to see the episode tonight.
@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.
