    I think there are a couple other ones they skip, too, or list a particular episode in the guide, then air a different one in its place. I forget which ones now.

    They need to do a WIthout a Trace movie with that as the plot (as long as it's not Elena that's missing...though I suppose that would mean a lot of screen time for Danny, so...hm...)

    That would have been interesting, one of their own disappearing. I mean, they had cases where Sam, Viv, and Jack each disappeared at one point, but the viewers knew what was going on with them, for the most part (maybe I'm forgetting one where someone else disappeared, too). But one where an agent vanished and the viewers along with the other agents were in the dark would have been interesting.

    I think part of it with "The Source" is that she had been featured in a previous episode. I was watching "Snatch Back" the other day, which featured her some. Then I was like "Right, she was the victim in that one episode." I recall "The Source" making me feel sad, too. And, before that, "Maple Street," with the one girl, especially with the friend (who was found) saying she couldn't wait to talk about it with the one who didn't make it. Though I think that may have affected me more now than on original viewing as the mom of a daughter... Currently watching "Copycat," one of my favorites, but also a really disturbing one--much easier to watch knowing how it turns out.

    I also watched this today and think it's a really good one as well. Agree that it was a good police investigation and that they went too easy on the cops. They didn't seem to have much remorse, either. I assume they went with the lighter sentence in the plea because they likely would have been acquitted in Albany. Still, not nearly enough.

    The doctor in Harvest. So smug and arrogant and saying that it *was* up to him to decide when the victim died.

    Yeah, I have no idea who I'm rooting for at this point. Maybe the fisherman guy, whatever his name is? Or possibly Shari or Dorian?

    I was just watching Securitate (DVRed) today, and I think the son qualifies for this. They agreed and gave him a very minimal sentence.

    I DVRed them and am just now getting through them. I'm even finding I kind of like Greevey? I am amused by some of the dramatic use of music in the first season though.

    I get the sense it was a retcon. If I recall correctly, there was even an episode earlier in her tenure that was about LGBTQ rights, and when I watched it later, knowing what happened, I figured there would have been some hints in there, like her being particularly passionate about it. But nope, nothing jumped out.

    S31:E11/12 This One is For One Million Dollars

    I was saying your second point to my H while watching. I'm really bad at retaining things I hear. Like if someone gives me verbal directions to a place, I can remember maybe the first two steps. I can't imagine having to remember 22 (well, 11, if it was split up). Now if I had to memorize stuff that was written down? I don't have a photographic memory, but I'd still do much better at that sort of task. I'm guessing Korey does have an audiographic memory. To comment on what some others said, I agree that the fowling seemed out of place in the final leg. It would have been more of a challenge if *both* team members had to knock all their pins down. Or if they only got, say, 3 tries then all the pins had to be set up again. The record-making challenge was interesting in an "Oh that's how they make records" kind of way, but didn't add much drama really. Running through the market in the next to last leg was pretty great--and I forget who said it (Tyler maybe?), but they showed one racer saying, "Oh good, now all we have to do is find Phil and check in" before finding him then being given that clue! Drum challenge was good, too.

    Agreed on all the hooker comments! And yeah, I wasn't sure how to feel about the victim either. Maybe if they'd done a better job showing why the woman had such a hold on him in the first place? It just felt like she was always trying to manipulate him, including the "We need to move to California together right now or my life will be awful." Have you watched "Two of Us" yet? Curious as to your take on that. Particularly the ending.

    S15.E25: Jump into the Fog

    And by the end of the series, ER had a completely different cast than the start. One of the issues with Grey's is the title--it kind of has to center around Meredith (I guess it could have switched to a different Grey...). They hang on to many characters way longer than they have a decent plot for them. As for this episode specifically, as a finale, I think one of the main issues for me is that they were trying to focus on too many plots at once. I feel the best finales of Grey's had them all together dealing with the same issue (like the hospital shooter or the plane crash). Of course, it's over the top to have some major disaster every finale. At the same time, focusing on just a couple plotlines in this one would have made it more effective. It's like you would go from the high-stakes blood donor for the boy to...Maggie and Jackson's camping woes to Teddy giving birth in a fairly straightforward delivery (well, aside from the whole Owen confessing his love--I think if I was in the middle of giving birth, I'd just be like, "shut up until I'm done!"). And Jo getting needed treatment. Oh right, and the whole insurance fraud thing. And Contacts and HAOG. I still feel like I'm forgetting something. As for Jo going inpatient, she did seem to be having difficulty functioning. Like just laying in bed all day, not really being willing to talk about what happened (except to Meredith), the going to work drunk, saying something suggestive of wanting to die. I think she was a good candidate for voluntary inpatient. Could she have been forced to go legally on a psych hold without seeming more of an immediate threat to herself (or others)? Doubtful. But voluntary, as long as there are beds available--she might be able to get help more quickly than once or twice weekly therapy sessions. Though as someone mentiond, intensive outpatient might have been a better choice, I imagine many viewers wouldn't be familiar with that, so they'd have to do a big explanation. While just showing "Psychiatric Inpatient" on the door was enough.

    S17.E18: Top 5 (2019.05.12)

    I agree that Alejandro is an artist--his piano on that last song was just amazing! That being said, I think he'd do better not winning and getting signed on his own, so he could write his own songs. I've only been watching for a couple weeks, but Laine kinda bores me. Madison has a great voice--I think she'd do well with an AI contract.

    S15.E24: Drawn to the Blood

    Just when I thought Maggie couldn't get any more annoying, she goes camping! And it was SO obvious that there was going to be a car accident with the blood donor. Is there a reason why they couldn't have taken her blood on the plane when she wouldn't leave? (That's what I was expecting Owen's big idea to be, not showing her the patient and guilting her into doing it.) Or is this a case where it would need to go directly from her into the boy? Agree with the other posters that they need a psychiatrist on staff. That could open up some interesting plot lines, too.
