THIS is the Gus I wanted to see during Psych: The Musical! The man has such a smooth voice, and I wish we had gotten to hear more of it in the musical.
The times are a-changin! The chief returns just long enough to ask Juliet to go to San Francisco with her to be her lead detective there, while Lassie is fighting to be a contender in the race for chief of police in Santa Barbara. Juliet hesitates at the chief’s offer, knowing if Lassiter gets to be chief, he’ll appoint her lead detective to replace him. She doesn’t necessarily want to move, but she doesn’t seem opposed to the idea.
Lassie meets with the mayor, and after a brief conversation, he decides that the best way to win the mayor over is by solving a cold case from years back involving the mayor’s uncle, who was a reporter back in ’67 when he died, apparently of suicide.
Lassie drags O’Hara, Shawn, Gus, Henry, and even Woody into the investigation, and though they’re a little skeptical of whether they’ll turn anything up, they are all game.
The episode then plays out with a sort of flashback, only with the regular cast taking on the roles of the characters from back in 1967, with Lassie playing the uncle, Archie Baxter, Gus playing a smooth-voiced musician, Shawn playing a mobster with a terrible accent, Henry playing the coroner who examined Baxter’s body, Juliet playing the mobster’s girlfriend with her own agenda, and… you get it. It was a lot of fun.
Lassie does solve the case, and gets promoted to chief of police, but he doesn’t have as much clout as he expected, and Juliet is set to be transferred. However, he doesn’t know that she got the offer from the chief, so now she has a reason to leave.
Though Shawn and Juliet want to make it work, her leaving in the middle of the night, or early morning, does not necessarily bode well. It’s the final season, so we knew some shake-ups were bound to happen, but I hope they don’t split Shawn and Jules up! Again! I think Gus and Shawn would do well in San Francisco. He may not be able to continue the psychic detective gig with the police, but I don’t think there would be a shortage of business in a big city like that.
WOW, back with a vengeange. Philip and Elizabeth don’t know whom to trust, and when a couple of their colleagues are murdered–slaughtered, really–in broad daylight with their children so nearby, they panic.
Elizabeth has been away, taking care of a sick relative, or so she and Philip have been telling the kids, but she’s back, for good, and it looks like she and her husband are going to stick it out together.
Paige, meanwhile, is still going through her parents’ things, convinced there’s something they’re not telling her. She rifles through her mother’s suitcase looking for something–anything, really–lying to her brother that she wants to do her mom’s laundry as a surprise.
She even goes to check that her parents came home after their date, opening the closed bedroom door late at night, but she is the one who gets the surprise. Nothing more sinister than a married couple doing what married couples do. Who knew they still 69’d in the 80s? I wasn’t shocked that she managed to catch them in the act, so to speak, but more that they were in that particular position.
However, the interesting thing isn’t the sexual position. It’s how Philip and Elizabeth discuss their daughter’s interruption the following morning. They chastize her for entering their room unannounced, mentioning trust and privacy as being of utmost importance, and send her to school. But then, Philip says:
Do you think that’s the first time she’s checked on us?
Stan is still getting the runaround from his Russian girlfriend. While she was mostly feeding him good intel last season, it looks like her loyalties have shifted and she wants to be a good girl for her country.
While she didn’t appear in this episode, Granny is back next week, and the news she bears does not look very pleasant as far as Elizabeth and Philip are concerned.
Scarlett is getting in over her head with Liam–who saw that one coming? Everyone? Right.–while Rayna and the family have to deal with Lamar’s death. The girls are upset, it looks like Teddy did decide to let Lamar die on his carpet, Tandy is upset, but not excessively so, and Rayna is eerily calm, until she isn’t. She makes the arrangements, and then loses her cool and starts smashing things. We knew it was complicated with her and her father, but I think Rayna’s gonna need some time on this one. She may have disowned him, but he was her father.
Avery is having fun with the little band he, Deacon, Zoe and Gunnar have put together, and they’re thinking of making it a regular thing. I smell trouble, but it’s hard to say where it will come from. Being a couple in a band is usually a recipe for disaster, but there could also be creative control issues with any of the three guys.
Juliette is trying to remake her image, but her new Hollywood friends seem a little too eager to yank her out of country music, and while her music isn’t that country to begin with, Nashville is home, and she doesn’t want to give it up so easily over some bad press that got blown out of proportion.
Yay! April chose Avery! She seems to have some reservations more than once, but it looks like she’s made up her mind. We don’t see hide nor hair of Matthew, but Stephanie is visibly upset. Then Murphy puts it in her head that she can do something about it, and so she does.
We know that attendings sleeping with residents and interns has been a problem at this hospital since the beginning–Derek and Meredith slept together in the pilot, after all–but I guess we’ve just gotten used to it. There’s been a lot of heartbreak, and a lot of problems both in the administration and the operation of the hospital, but everything always seemed to have worked out. In the end.
Callie and Arizona are still trying to fix things. So they buy a house. A murder house. That is about it on their end.
Ross is in deep trouble for his overzealous attempt to do surgery after too many hours on the job, but the medical review board saw fit to allow him to return to work after a short time off. Owen, however, lets him know he’s in the dog house.
Alex has gone off the handle again, first at Jo rejecting his proposal, and then at Ross when he tries to apologize. His dad is still in the hospital, dying, and the family he had wants nothing more to do with him. Karev was due for a meltdown, and Ross was the nearest trigger/punching bag, but I always worry for him. He’s gotten through a lot to get where he is, and I’d hate to see him lose his license to practice over a fistfight (ahem, one-sided beating) with an intern.
It looks like Mer and Cristina are back on good terms–at least that’s something gone right–but Meredith is still upset at Derek for taking a call from the President. POTUS wants him to head up this project, but he has to be vetted, and Derek has a secret even Meredith doesn’t know. He became a neurosurgeon because he played hockey in high school, and put a boy in a state that he could only communicate through blinking. It would have been all right, only Derek’s been sending the family money for years, and the vetters want to know why.
I don’t see why something like that should keep him from participating in the project, but politics being what they are, a hint of a scandal can be death to someone’s career.
Avery and April have a secret, but with the new no-tolerance policy on no interoffice relationships between superiors and subordinates, it looks like it will out before long. **Spoiler: They got married!**
Oh, dear: where to begin?
Liv is running Fitz’s campaign, and Sally decides that she’s still going to run as an independent, but that she will remain as VP until the election. Liv is all ready to fire things out at her, but when Sally announces she won’t resign just yet, Liv has to recalculate to get the public opinion back on the President’s side.
It turns out the person that Harrison’s been trying to keep out of the states is an ex, and wonder of wonders, it’s Nora, Barney’s ex from HIMYM! Instead of killing her with Abby’s gun as he intended, they jump each other’s bones. I have a bad feeling about this.
James is trying to find out what’s going on at the White House, the Press Secretary engaging in conspiracy against the Chief of Staff, his own husband, and he keeps going back to David to get advice, but it looks like he may have gotten in too deep this time, leaking stuff that oughtn’t to have been leaked.
AND Mellie. Ever so coolly, trying to defuse the rumors about Fitz and Olivia, again, invites Liv to lunch in public with all the cameras pointed at their smiling faces. Liv plays ball, but the chilliness remains underneath all the cheery exterior.
The big story I believe is the new VP Fitz wants to take Sally’s place on the ticket, an old friend from California, someone whom he believes will have the loyalty that Sally so clearly lacks. However, Liv doesn’t want him because he doesn’t suit their political needs, and Mellie, well, Mellie doesn’t want a guy she used to sleep with just down the hall from her husband’s office. I’ll buy the silver fox thing, but I would have cast someone better looking and perhaps a bit younger to play Mellie’s old flame.
A bit of news:
Bad news for Mind Games. The pilot ratings were better than some ABC’s other recent disasters, Lucky 7, Killer Women, and The Assets, but not by much, and it may not be by enough to get the show picked up for the spring season.
It looks like most people felt the same way about Mixology as I did, as it opened to a dismal audience Wednesday night. On the other hand, Chicago PD was up, seemingly from a crossover ep from Law & Order: SVU (Haven’t watched it yet… how did they swing that? SVU is in NY and CPD is Chicago…?)
I’ve decided to cut Parenthood, The Tomorrow People, Elementary, and Almost Human from the line-up temporarily. Because of the heavy schedule and the impending return of other shows like Bates Motel, OUAT in Wonderland and Suits next week, things are just a little too hectic to keep up with EVERYTHING I want to watch right now.
If a gap opens up in the schedule, I’ll throw some of these back in, and once the schedule lightens up again, I may add them back in if the season’s still going at that point, but for now, me being a one-woman-show here, I just can’t keep up with it all.
Enlisted and Five-0 are back Friday night, and the new season of Hannibal returns!
