    Wait, what? When did that happen? I'm surprised they didn't write that into the plot or something. Regarding Samar's condition, a few episodes back, wasn't Red trying to obtain some sort of drug or treatment for a degenerative disease? It wasn't very specific, and I think that plotline was dropped, but I wonder if they're holding that back for a future episode.

    The Village

    That poor dog, having to walk up and down four flights of stairs on three legs. I suppose it will be a drama point all through the season when the new divorced guy ( sorry, it will take me 2-3 episodes to sort out names) finds out that Nick the vet is Sarah's father. There goes the dating possibility. We'll see. There's a wealth of good stories here if they can manage it. I like the idea of the Thursday Night get together on the roof.

    Station 19

    Something that has always intrigued me is where does everyone park their vehicles (carpools noted)? Engine has four people, Truck has four people, Squad had four people, Ambo has two, plus BC and admin staff in the front. That's a lot of vehicles. True, the admin staff goes home every night, but there's two shifts of firefighters alternating. That means maybe 10-14 cars per shift, so somebody has to park elsewhere until space is available after shift change. ETA: I was confusing this with Chicago Fire, but the basic premise still stands. They need a lot of space.

    My question is why are henchmen so stupid? You always go in armed when you're confronting the boss. And never, ever move over so you're standing right in front of the assassination henchman. Duh.

    Dembe playing charades with the group was the highlight of the episode. Who knew?

    Station 19

    That was the dumbest thing that Ryan could possibly have done, looking up police records for Pruitt. That's a felony, and departments do prosecute it in order to maintain at least some semblance of public trust. I don't know about the executive and his lawsuit. They could threaten him with a felony charge (true or not) of attempting to spread a communicable disease and said the security guard save untold numbers of people by his actions, just to get him to drop the lawsuit. Kathleen just started the academy so she wouldn't show up for several weeks, at least not in real time. This show plays long and loose with reality, though. I'd bet on Ben, though, since he wants out of there. Neither Maya nor Jack should leave, as this is Shondaland, and it is contractually obligated that at least one couple engage in completely inappropriate sex on occasion without any repercussions.

    Toby's Mom: Miguel, is that you? Are those idiot Pearsons still fighting all the time? You're the only sane one we have ever met. Thanks for the news.

    S03.E16: Don't Take My Sunshine Away

    Add to all of the drama between Beth and Randall was the fact that, during the dinner, she was giving very clear signs that she was displeased with Randall. If their hosts were at all observant, that's likely to show up back at the halls of City Council, because people love to trade secrets about other people's lives. Recall the kerfluffle that occupied the media after Melania brushed off Donald's hand (for whatever reason) while they were walking.

    Johnny Cash's birth certificate shows JR Cash, as named by his father Ray. He adopted Johnny later on, probably for similar reasons as you put. Or so I've read.

    Documentary Now!

    I wonder if Gary Larson was informed that he would be an offscreen character in this little excursion, or if he tuned in by accident one night, and said "Wait, what?"

    First off, who hired Bull's team to work on this case? Dr. Stratton? Did she get a friend discount, or what? It doesn't seem likely that someone would go to the expense of jury psychology for a case that could be won with good lawyering. Secondly, yes, it's a good old Hallmark Movie end in that the kid goes to live with the nice church lady until he's 18. Except that he's had nothing but brainwashing for 13 years about society and lethal force. Nobody thinks that there might be some residual anger and dangerous tendencies there, perhaps warranting a more structured environment. He is, after all, an expert marksman with a volatile temperament. Whose land were they squatting on? There was never an issue with the land owner, or manager if company or public land?

    Somebody from CSI looks at them and exclaims "These are just some bones from a couple of dogs." The crowd gasps, and begins to chant "Kill him. KILL HIM!"

    And "Bryce Manley" bore a striking resemblance to a certain actor, too. Swashbuckler, indeed. Reason #2 why I could never be a national politician ( or even a local one): To have to mortgage your own beliefs to attract the attention of a leader that, on any other day, you wouldn't piss on his him if his head was on fire. Reason #1 occurred back in the last episode when Bess had to make the terrible choice of humanity versus national interest. However, that being said, I feel more than a little conflicted that Henry went around the pastor's back to get his daughter to throw him under the bus, even though I didn't like him one bit. That was very interesting when the NOAA guy asked about Nadine, and there was just a quick shot of him wiping his eye as he turned around in the elevator.

    "The One..." Are we going to get cameos from Rachel, Ross, and Friends?
