Like I said in the other thread, wouldn't this fall under the jurisdiction of the FBI and out of Dante's hands?

Speculation.

I have seen the story on Law & Order Los Angeles and The Closer of the marijuana industry being robbed. They need banking services and it is all cash since the federal government refuses to go along with many states, which New York recently joined,  legalization and decriminalization

Since this show seems to be Hawaii 5-0 in winter coats, I will predict that the cops are somehow in on it hence why Det. Dante has to go to the folks who will do what the regular cops can't/wont.

Not unpopular with me. I think that's why I like the OG Equalizer series so much: Robert McCall's grown son - while he did show up - didn't seem as annoying (most of the time) and was not in every episode, but then, both McCall men were adults there, so that may make a difference.

But if Delilah vanished, I wouldn't cry.

I did enjoy Robyn putting her in her place. Nothing worse than a teen who thinks they have something on you.

I guess resurrecting Harry will be a season-long thing?

I hate that on TV Shows, all the bad guys at the very top go to prison and everybody under them goes to the morgue.

They sure put a lot of bodies in the ground this episode, I wonder if they let anybody know.

The bad guy fired his gun 3 times at McCall before he ran out of bullets, I think he needs a better gun.

So it turns out that Detective Dante just didn't trust the FBI to get the robbers because the NYPD had nothing on the murderers. I'm not sure about the law since only safety deposit boxes were stolen and not the federally insured cash. If the FBI would just tell the NYPD your case with have other stuff to do.

After a couple of on set accidental deaths from blank ammunition you often see slides lock open on an empty magazine after the 1 or 2 shots the script called for. On a show with as much shooting as this one  you wouldn't expect that rookie production mistake.

Atticus did rip off the congressman. Seems like he got immunity. Too bad everybody knows that he got a job at the VA under his real name instead of witness protection.

Can someone remind me—what was in the safe deposit box the bad guys took?

They thought it was the proof that the congressman ran an unauthorized coup in that made up Central American country. Because why would you want to destroy it? Make sure you keep that incriminating shit in your personal safe. It's the smart play.

I think it was where "Horrible Dad" kept all of the jewelry that he stole, so that if the Police ever raided his house, they wouldn't find anything. He told the "Politician's Goon" that was where he had the "Coup Evidence" (which it wasn't) as a stalling tactic, hoping the goons would get caught trying to recover it. 

Can someone remind me - how Dante got his hands on the Congressman’s watch.

Wasn’t the watch evidence in a pawn shop break in? Someone stole it from the congressman and hocked it? (Although I thought they were talking about cufflinks…)

Like normal the case had holes (pun unintended) but I pretty much just accept that in most TV/movies.

Also glad Robyn straightened out Delilah and Aunt Vi.  I don't like kids on shows as anything more than a passing occasion but I especially can't stand flippant ones.  I get she's upset but she could always go live with her dad.

I also expect that Harry's coming back to life will be a good chunk of the season.

While I understand McCall works outside of the law, I do get annoyed with these shows that decide shooting up the place and killing everyone with a pulse is the way to go.  I get that some of that is going to happen but every single time?

On a less serious note, McCall's earring game is once again strong, lol.  The first pair looked a bit heavy though but the others were nice.

Sorry, I'm out.

Season 1 was unrealistic and unbelievable with more holes than plot. I thought I'd give S2 a shot to see if it might have improved, but not according to what I've seen, and not according to what has been hinted as coming up. So, like I say, I'm done.

Bishop!  You are looking particularly delicious....Thanks for that few minutes on my screen!

I loved the sweater she gave Harry.  Granny squares and crochet is very in these days.  I'll have to screenshot & get some more details on it. 

Delila just better keep her trap shut.  

Good to see you, Robyn!  It's been too long since you kicked some ass & took some names!

The show salvaged some credibility by McCall losing the knife fight - and needing Dante to kill that dude. At least one guy at the CIA had better skills than her...

I thought Delilah was ridiculous feeling so betrayed. Did she expect her spy mother to tell her about all her undercover activities? Especially when she's shown such a total lack of maturity? 

I am trying really hard to like this show, but I am struggling.

This episode was...not good. And yet, I am still glad to have the show back. 

I like Delilah, but she absolutely deserved being told off by Robyn.  Teen misbehavior is handwaved a lot on TV (by writers AND viewers), so I appreciate that Robyn shut it down when she got out of line.  I also chuckled at Vi being offended.  This was the best scene of the episode. 

I wonder if we ever get to see the ex-husband, or is he meant to be a Wilson variant (hat tip to Home Improvement). 

I speculated last season that Robyn wasn't hurting for money, and she confirmed it this episode.

Teenagers are usually just behind toddlers on the maturity scale.  The world DOES revolve around them, they SHOULD get everything they want, if they whine enough, they WILL get their way, the entire universe IS at their beck and call, and their parents OWE them everything.  (Yes, I've raised kids)

Pretty typical.  Annoying AF, but typical.  

Robyn did a nice slap-down in a loving, calm way.

I enjoyed seeing Robyn working with Dante so well.  Hoping there will be more team ups in the future.  I think he still doesn't even know her name, what does he call her.  What would he shout out to get her attention.... "hey.... you"?  She should at least give him some kind of fake name.

I don't care about Harry and his whining about being "dead".  At all.  He's been living in the same place underground for five years?  Because of his federal crimes and because someone from the mob will kill him?  Why not alter appearance and leave the country and go and live a quiet life?  Stay off the cyber network and nobody will find him.  I would go crazy living underground in a dark windowless space for five years.

I agree, I don't understand why she felt so betrayed, but I am glad that the Queen smacked her down and told her how it is.  I doubt this will be the end of the angsty angry teen storylines, but here's hoping.  We need more Aunt Vi and I hope we can see them all doing more things together as a family and laughing, like when they TikTokked to "Levitating".

That last knife fight should have been McCall as the Winter Soldier... Each time the bad guy disarmed her, she would pull out another knife.

Agree and disagree about some things.

Agree that it was good that Robyn put her daughter in her place.  "It's your fault you were nosy and learned things you weren't ready to learn."  Awesome.

Disagree about not liking the Harry storyline.  I love Harry and his wife and look forward to, hopefully, seeing more of them.

Also disagree with those not liking this episode or the show.  Not disagreeing with your right to an opinion, just - I love this show.

I still want to know where the FBI was.  They should have at least been there at the beginning.  Then, if it not being federally insured money taken, if that's the reason, then they could step back.

I thought the sweater was a joke and Harry, being Harry, liked it for its weirdness.  I'm so out of the fashion loop.

Anyway, glad this show id back!

While I find Delilah annoying, if she went to live with her father full-time, would we still have Aunt Vi? She is worth everything!

Loved Robyn's smack down of Delilah. Thank you! I hate when shows let the teen continue to get away with that crap and their parent/parents' never say anything because God forbid that should happen.

Queen Latifah has really beautiful hair.
