Barba talking at the speed of light — even faster than usual — made him seem more arrogant and frankly, like he was on drugs of some sort. To me, he was pretty insufferable for 99% of the episode.
So glad Carisi won — absolutely unbelievable that Barba was defending this vigilante who clearly premeditated murdering the foster father (who was guilty but deserved to go to trial just like any other perp). Being a wounded vet does not give anyone the right to be judge, jury and executioner.
Loved the engagement news about Fin — wish we’d seen the moment! I've always liked Jennifer Esposito in the roles I've seen.
I actually don’t mind that Carisi is a stable, normal, stand-up guy in Rollins’ life. Enjoyed the happy reactions when he walked into the apartment on NYE.
I very much liked that Benson took a back seat on this episode. The amount of Benson was just right IMO.
Something I missed: how was the daughter found? On the street, bleeding out, if I heard correctly? What did her foster father intend after he gave her the abortion pills — she could have died if she hadn’t been found. Someone fill me in please.
