When he was in the first scene, I thought, okay, random, what are you doing here, Jai? And then he seemed to be done, so I thought, what was the point of that, some sort of quick cameo role? I had totally forgotten about him by the time Nolan got hit in the head.
Glad he wasn't just doing one scene after all, but I did wonder how he could have gotten Nolan up in those pipes, chair or no. Nathan Fillion's lost weight, but he's still taller and he's got a solid frame, he's got some muscles going on, so... love you, Jai, but come on. Especially because I assume he also had to break through the ceiling first, which is noisy and time-consuming. It was just a bit odd.
(Then again, a friend of mine in high school was kind of skinny and totally offended when I said I felt like I was too heavy for him to lift me up for a show choir dance move, and he proved himself by picking me up and carrying me around the stage and wouldn't put me down until I conceded that yes, indeed, he was strong enough. LOL. Never insult a man's strength.)
Nevertheless, I like Nolan helping out his partner for the evening, and then (thank goodness) she helped him right back. That duct tape part was a little creepy - reminded me of that Gianni Versace crime story they did last year? I don't like anything where you can't breathe, so I was pretty tense watching that part.
I did too! I think she could have heard him out at least, before sending him on his way. It's not like she looked particularly busy. She should have made sure he was mentally competent and not using his "cat" as metaphor for someone in his life he actually needed a restraining order against.
