This reminded me a little bit of the JFK assassination conspiracy and the movie Wanted. A magic bullet that can alter its trajectory mid-flight means a lot of people can die without someone having to be in a direct line of sight.
John is dealing with anger issues, and we see him at group therapy for it. He seems to be in good shape, but there’s one thing we know about John, he’s not the best communicator and he will do anything it takes to get out of something he doesn’t want to do.
He butts heads with another MX who disagrees with Dorian’s analysis of the first crime scene, and insults Dorian as an inferior operating system, and when the bot won’t quit talking, John shoots him in the “head”. After the altercation, Dorian teases his partner a bit.
Dorian [to John, with a smirk]: You like me.
The magic bullet turns out to be an extortion case in which a criminal group wants the science for the bullet and threatens the scientist’s loved ones to obtain it, and of course, John and Dorian crack the case.
Random sidenote: did anybody else notice how the partners’ names are those of JD, Zach Braff’s character on Scrubs? Silly connection, but a fun mentionable.
Additional sidenote along the same lines: Speaking of Braff, Wish I Was Here is CRUSHING IT at Sundance! If you haven’t heard the news about it, it’s all been really positive and is getting film geeks like me super-excited for the film, even though I’ve already been excited about it since last April when the Kickstarter project was announced.
Jake wins his bet with Santiago over who can gain more arrests, so he gets to take her out on the worst date ever. He dresses them up in terrible, dorky clothes, makes them dance crazily at the restaurant, and does everything he can think of to rub it in her face that he won the bet.
However, there’s more than friendly competition going on, as it seems the two might really like each other. Peralta even turns down back-up on a stake-out in order to stay with Santiago a little longer. Though it started as a joke date, it sort of turned into a real one midway through.
Boyle has been on pain meds, and it’s made him especially truthy and blunt about things with his coworkers, something none of them want him to do. And even the captain gets a little too truthful sharing things with Terry’s wife, not realizing that Terry has been keeping her in the dark about being back on active duty.
Boyle has a sweet moment with Diaz, who has been avoiding him all night, and actually doesn’t say what she thinks he was going to say, but it was sweet nonetheless.
I’m so glad these guys are back! And even more glad that TBS.com’s TV provider sign-in offers DirecTV as an option!
Tyler finds a grey hair and thinks he’s getting old, and thereby converts his habits into those of an old person’s.
Milo is trying to have more fun in life, and so Gibbs teaches him how to be “samurai”, which has absolutely nothing to do with anything. After starving himself for several days, not realizing that he could have been eating breakfast, if nothing else those days, Milo gets back at Gibbs by taking his credit card and taking the penthouse at the Plaza for the night. Though Gibbs is angry, he created Milo’s new attitude, so reap what you sow?
When Neal wants propose to Amy, he decides to get Amy’s dad’s blessing (recall her dad is also his boss, and her dad doesn’t like Neal–and her dad is also played by JK Simmons, comedy god). Though he has trouble finding the balls to do it, a practice session with Gibbs and a little encouragement from the newly geriatric-minded Tyler gets Neal through it successfully.
I don’t think we saw Amy this episode, but I’m sure she’ll be back soon enough!
When one of their kind escapes from it, the Tomorrow People learn the location of the Citadel, a prison facility Ultra maintains. The man escapes to search for his wife, but can’t find her. Steven intervenes, but the man pushes him out when Steven tries to read his mind and communicate–something Kara says only very powerful telepaths can do.
Steven has been brought out of his near-death experience/experiment and is convinced he saw his father and that he mentioned a man called Simon Plane (Plain? Whatever). Steven tries to look into it at Ultra, but the computer was told to alert Jedekiah if anyone accessed those files, especially someone like Steven who lied about having the access level needed to see them.
Back at the underground lair, the Tomorrow People want a new leader after they find out John has been promising them a savior who is probably dead. Nominating Kara and putting it to a vote, it’s pretty clear where everyone’s loyalties now lie. Kara runs things a little differently, but with leadership comes ego, and she is determined to prove she’s a match for Ultra and Jedekiah by showing her ruthlessness. John tries to stay her hand, keep her conscience intact, but he isn’t able to stop her if her mind is made up.
Kara and the Tomorrow People manage to infiltrate the Citadel and rescue a few of its inhabitants/prisoners, but Jedekiah was already onto the break-in and they have to fight their way out.
Steven’s mom is dating again, and after trying to get into the new guy’s head, Steven has strong reason to believe the man is quite a powerful telepath himself, as he blocks Steven’s efforts. This does not bode well. If he didn’t have something to hide, why would the guy bother blocking Steven out? Highly suspect!
Antonio’s son has been kidnapped, and the kidnappers want an exchange–Popol (the Columbian, however you spell that guy’s nickname) for the boy. At first, despite his lividity, Antonio wants to be a good, honorable, mostly by-the-book cop. However, as time runs out on the kidnapper’s clock, and the team already had one cock-up in trying to catch one of the kidnappers, Antonio speaks to his wife and decides to throw the book and do things Voight’s way. Sort of scary seeing a good cop get his hands dirty. Haven’t made up my mind how I feel about it yet, missing kid or not.
Lindsay and Ruzek (who was responsible for the aforementioned screw-up) end up saving the day, Lindsay boarding the bus with the kidnapper and shooting the man when she had a clear shot, and Ruzek having the creativity to rear-end the bus when the kidnapper decided to play standoff with Lindsay. Since they were all on comms, Lindsay got the heads up for the crash and was able to grab Antonio’s son when he was jolted forward in the impact and shoot the kidnapper just after.
Heavy episode–it’s always tough when somebody gets taken.
Voight, tired of getting the runaround from his extra-departmental watchdog, goes over the guy’s head and threatens to leave his post if he isn’t given the freedom to run his unit his way. It works.
The big reveal comes when it turns out Voight got out of prison because he agreed to sell out a few people, cops, criminals, dirty cops, or all of the above. However, Voight being Voight, the move will happen on his terms if and when it does happen.
ONE MORE set of catch-ups, this week and last week’s Revenge. Then, we’re onto a new week chock-full of premieres, finales, and new episodes.
