I agree with Suzanne's comment. Too many shows drag it out before they make the obvious solution as to if she is her mother. You take a DNA test, what else. If she refuses then you know its a lie. As for Hank not using gloves, as a nurse, I certainly noticed that also. Gloves are infection control for both. The hand washing thing would be boring to watch, we have to assume that he has. As many times as a doctor or nurse has to wash their hands, it would not leave much time for the story. I did like that Hank left his medical bag for the kid, it was a great moment. I do understand the comment that he had nothing to help the patient he was dealing with, unless we are to assume he took the supplies needed. Lots of holes, but its not real life. I agree not the best writing this season, although, I don't think its been as bad some say. I'm still watching.
I thought this was an incredible episode. As I was watching it, I was thinking of what I would say here. But, you said most of it already. I agree with your review totatlly, I loved Sanchez in this, and also loved that they are showing Provenza dealing with not being the top person. No matter what the character or actress of Raydor does, you are always going to have people who are going to be critics and not give the character a chance, I call it the Brenda syndrome, and they can't get over it. I loved Brenda and she made the show, but its time to move on. These characters are changing and adjusting to a new leader, as is expected. I love that Rusty is becoming more understanding, as he sees what Sharon has to go through.
The red folder that was handed to Rusty, that they were going to go over at dinner. Could that be a petition for adoption?
Does anyone have any other ideas? Great episode.
Jen....I don't recall telling you how to feel. My point was, (and by the way I did not point anybody out) all the questions aren't answered yet, thats the point. People are complaining because they don't know one thing or the other. We all have questions, they aren't going to answer them in a promo. Thats the whole idea of a cliff hanger. Unless they published the script and I missed it, how does anyone know? Give them a chance to answer the questions, then complain. I guarantee all the answers won't be in the first episode either. There have comments by others that have said season 3 will be just as bad as season 2. How do they know? I don't believe in crystal balls.
I liked the episode. I like Divya and Rafa. A character needs to grow and change. Is anyone really the same all their life? I think that would be boring. I like Hank and Harper as well, Jill is gone, get over it. The connection between Paige and Fiona was a great thing. I too loved that the mother/daughter was more to real life, and well acted by both. I thought this was one of the better episodes.
I was surprised by the biological mother showing up so soon, but it was spread over the entire country because of the campaign. She could probably put 2 and 2 together. Is she there for money? Who knows how they will play this.
I enjoyed this show. I agree that the Closer was better, and Kyra Sedgewick was the main reason. But, this show is making its way. It can't be the exact same. I think Capt. Ryder is what she should be. Some people don't like that she does not show the different expressions that the Brenda character did, but its not the same character. People need to get over that.
I have to admit, I did not like Rusty, but he seems to be showing a little more humanity. Afterall, anyone who has raised a teenager knows its no picnic, and Rusty did not have a stable up bringing, so I'll give him a break. I love Michael Weatherly, I watch NCIS as well, he plays his characters perfectly. It was humorous and we need to see that once in a while. I'm still watching.
How can you tell from one line in the promo that the whole story was told. This is going to go on for a while, we aren't going to get all the answers at once. Of course she is going to say she did it to protect her family, as did John McGarrett, no shock there. Mama McG's choice probably does not make sense to us in the real world, but this is a TV program. It's entertainment, you have the right to like it or not, but don't think that all choices in a TV show are going to make sense to you. If you are entertained is that not what you watch TV for? It's going to be a great season, for the millions of people who don't pick everything apart.
I can't wait, it has been so long. I'm very happy Christine Lahti was picked, I think she will be great. Looks like Wofat is already on the loose, interesting to see how he gets away from tracking down Mom McG. We did not see Kono, after her swim time, nor did we see Chin after finding Malia. I hope they don't give too much away. I really am excited about this year, it looks really good.
I thought this was one of the better episodes this season. I agree that the shows have been scattered. I do like the fact that they are putting Hank and the other doctor (forgot her name) together. I think this is a good match. Divya's story isn't over yet, next week should be interesting. I did think that Paige's shock could have been done better, although I loved the scene where she went into her room and looked at the portrait. That was a good moment for the actress. I'm still liking this show, although I think they did do better in the past.
I believe that Rusty was in foster homes before he ran away, and was not a teenager at the time he was left at the zoo by his mother.
I not thrilled with Sykes, but am willing to give the character a chance.
As I recall, Brenda was not liked by the team when she first came on. She had to win their trust. I think Sharon is a strong character, and should not be done like Brenda. That was a great character and I loved every minute of her, but this is a spin off, and changes have to occur. The Sharon character can't be the same, otherwise people will complain about that. I agree, just wait until the end of the first season. There is not a show I've EVER seen that did not take at least 1/2 a normal season (24 episodes) to catch on and develop. I'm still watching.
Great Summer ending. I agree with the other commenters, Sharon Gless is ablsolutely fabulous. The analogy of the broken bottles was great, and it totally threw me off of Card being the one who wants Michael dead. I was shocked, and pleased that they fooled me. I love this show, I'm sorry that we have to wait until November to find out how Michael and the gang deal with this.
I did not think of what Nisan thought of about Maddie, but I think Maddie figuring something out about Card would be great. I think this show is doing exactly what it should be doing, thats why I keep watching.
