Jake’s building is going co-op, and short of a loan shark, he can’t come up with the money to buy his apartment. However, Gina may have a solution: she can buy it and rent it to him.
I felt a little out of the loop on this one, because Jake and Gina apparently go back to childhood, and he even got her the job at the department. Did I miss this piece of information somewhere along the way? Because otherwise, it seems a little late to be bringing it up now…
Anyway, while Jake is dealing with his housing crisis, Holt and the sergeant are working on interviews for the department’s self-evaluations, and Diaz and Boyle are working on getting back at the weekend guy who sits at Diaz’s desk and always gets hair trimmings (from shaving with an electric razor) in her keyboard.
The self-evaluations run through everyone, but as usual, Santiago is the overachiever trying to make sure she does hers properly.
Boyle and Diaz start devising a plan, and even carry it out, to get back at her weekend desk guy, but once they hear about all the miserable things going on in his life, they try to undo what they did. But, it’s easier to fill a locker with shaving cream and hair trimmings than it is to clean one out.
It seems they make a pretty good team, when Boyle isn’t constantly trying to get her to go out with him, and Diaz shows a rare appreciation for another human being, and a smile won out of pleasure and companionship instead of enjoying someone else’s pain or suffering. Win-win.
I don’t know why I keep skipping this when the encore airs on Wednesday nights–laziness and exhaustion, I suppose–because I have really been enjoying this season! I was a little bored and disappointed with the comedy in season two, but this year, it has been laugh-out-loud-almost-til-you-cry funny. If you’re not watching this, you oughta be!
Neal unknowingly flirts with a girl at a restaurant, and then leaves, not even with a number. He was totally on his game, and then he chokes, because he really didn’t realize he was doing it. Gibbs, unwilling to let him go unrewarded for his efforts, goes back to the girl and her friends and finds out about a party they’re going to, and insists Neal go along and talk to the girl again.
However, while Gibbs and Tyler show up at one party, Neal and Milo show up at another, but they are having a hard time finding out which one is the right location. When Milo learns that there’s “Molly” in the punch, aka ecstasy, he and Tyler decide that that’s not the right party, because it was “Molly’s” party, not a “Molly” party, that they were supposed to go to.
However, both Milo and Neal have been drinking the punch at a steady pace, not realizing it was dosed, and they both start to freak out. Milo believes he has finally discovered the inspiration for his novel, and begins proselytizing to the entire party, all of whom are also high, and he becomes a sensation.
Neal ends up in a bedroom, trying to come down in peace, but meets an adorable redhead, Annie (Maria Thayer, whom you may recognize from Accepted, or maybe Forgetting Sarah Marshall), whom he really hits it off with. However, he gets distracted by a phone call, and when he looks back, the girl is gone, and there’s only a doll in her place, making him wonder if he imagined the whole conversation.
Tyler has also become extremely high off pot cookies at his party, and becomes a bit of a sensation/guru to the hipsters there as well. Gibbs, meanwhile, is determined to find the girl that Neal had talked to, and once he finds her, he follows her on the street, but accidentally scares her making her think he’s going to mug her, and she “escapes” and sends the cops after him.
He gets tazed and goes to jail, joined shortly after by Milo and Tyler, who got arrested for being super-high and getting punched in the face, respectively, and Neal comes and bails them out. However, while he is much less high than he was earlier, he is still high enough to grab the cop’s hand without realizing it.
But–not all is lost! Neal and the guys go to their usual diner for breakfast the next morning, and incredibly, Annie is there! They had agreed to meet for breakfast before she disappeared, but after he found the doll, he didn’t know if he’d hallucinated her or not. And, while before he told Gibbs he wasn’t ready to start dating again, he is glad to join her and jump back into the water.
The Crazy Ones
Zach-mitvah! When a new client (Cheryl Hines, Waitress, The Ugly Truth, Surburgatory, Curb Your Enthusiasm – I could go on) mentions that some of the plans for her son’s bar mitzvah have fallen through, Simon reveals how he met Zach, and what Zach did before he joined the ad world–he DJ’ed bar mitzvahs, incredibly enthusiastically. The agency decides to throw the kid’s party and if they do it well, they might just gain a client in the process.

However, DJ’ing isn’t the only thing we learn about Zach in this episode: he actually had his heart broken once, as opposed to being the heartbreaker. And, surprise, the singer at the bar mitzvah is the one who did it. Zach wants the answers he never got when they broke up, and ruins the party for a while, but when he realizes this, he gets it all back on track.
Meanwhile, Lauren gets high, making her even more ridiculous than usual, and Sydney flirts with a guy until she finds out he’s a waiter, and a bit of a slob. She fires him, twice, but she can’t deny the attraction and they end up making out. Then, since that little stunt got him fired for real, and he was sleeping on his manager’s couch, it looks like Sydney has a new houseguest. This should be interesting. We have the vet next-door, and the hottie waiter on her couch. I expect things may get extremely complicated soon for Ms. Roberts.
Sidenote: It’s almost impossible to dislike Cheryl Hines, and this was no exception. She’s adorable and incredibly funny. If you haven’t seen more than a few minutes of her, sit down and watch Waitress, at least.
Guest appearance by none other than the Working Girl herself, Melanie Griffith as Danny’s mother! In from the mainland, she arrives only to tell her son that she is divorcing his father. She enjoys visiting Danny and Grace, but Danny is trying to figure out how something like this could happen.

Meanwhile, the Five-0 team is investigating a murder in which a guy is found inside a wall. It leads to the exposure of an illegal gun operation, and eventually the killer, but that’s not the best part, Darryl Hannah guest stars as well!
Also, Grover (Chi McBride) is being investigated by a reporter for something that happened while he was in Chicago, and Steve, being Steve, stands up for him, and now owes a favor to the reporter (Ethan Embry, if I’m not mistaken! Poor guy is seriously losing his hair, unless it was for the role–awesome to see him, though!).
I enjoyed the season premiere, though I have no effing clue where they’re going with all this. Will is in psychiatric care, the same hospital in which Lecter will find himself years from now, accused of the murders that Lecter is responsible for. He knows this, somehow, deep down, but he believes he’s either had his memory altered through hypnosis of some sort, or the memories are repressed.
Hannibal, meanwhile, is still pretending he is worried about Will, telling his shrink (yay, Gillian Anderson returns! Almost called her Dana–almost!) and Crawford that he’s concerned Will is seriously psychologically disturbed by what he saw at that last murder scene. He even offers his assistance to Crawford at the FBI again, which his therapist is concerned about. An obsession with Will and the FBI will lead him nowhere good.
In addition, we get a guest appearance from Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City), so that was also fun, though she is on grave business, trying to settle the internal turmoil among how Crawford has run his investigations, particularly how he involved Will.
By far the creepiest part of the episode was where a couple of workers (not sure if they were sewage workers, parks, fish and game, or what) find decaying bodies in a river, just floating there, decomposing among the other rubbish, with garbage, tree branches, and water-based plant life. This sets off a narrative for this season’s killer.
Will is asked his opinion about the cases, from the confines of the prison/psychiatric ward. After reviewing all the victims that were identified and a slew of other missing persons in the area, he determines that what they have in common is their skin color, which isn’t identical, but he sees a color palette, a slight different in skin color that ranges from white to brown to black. It’s not clear exactly what the killer is doing with this spectrum of skin color of his victims, but it will be interesting how Crawford and the FBI pursue the case, and the extent to which Will is involved in the investigation.
The ratings were down a bit for the new season on its new night, despite a lead-in from Grimm. While the ratings weren’t terrible, and were actually up from some of the final episodes from last year, it’s hard to say how NBC will respond. I don’t imagine they can move it anywhere else in the schedule at the moment, though a Tuesday night battle against NCIS might be fun, but I expect some pretty haunting and ugly stories lie ahead for Will, Hannibal and Crawford, so perhaps the temptation of gore and terror will draw the audience back.
Recaps from what I missed earlier in the week will be up either tomorrow or Monday, as soon as I can get to them.
PS: Any thoughts on the embedded tweets? Crazy Ones and Five-0 hadn’t updated their FB pages to include pics from the new episodes, but I had seen a couple pics posted on Twitter, so I included those instead. I kind of like them, but I wouldn’t want to do them instead of regular pictures…
It affects chemicals in the body that are involved in the cause of some types of hurt. There are many medicines which give you things you need to be ready on your own terms. What doctors talk about viagra or cialis? It contains Sildenafil. Also known as erectile disfunction is defined as the impossibility to attain an erection suitable for intercourse. Having erectile dysfunction can no doubt complicate dating. Many men take more medicines later in life and some have sexual side effects that will lead to impotence. Some of medications fuel desire. Certain far-famed medicaments can mean screwing with your orgasm. What is the most significant facts you perhaps know know about this?
