Lady Calypso December 27, 2017 Share December 27, 2017 And now, I can happily say that I'm finally all caught up, with plenty of time to spare. Which is going to super disappoint me if this show is cancelled. Anyway, back to the episodes. I really loved the Rosa plot for the first episode. I'm not even mad that Jake was there. I knew someone had to be there, and since Jake not only is close with Rosa but also the main character who gets almost all of the A plots, I didn't expect anyone else. He was also the perfect person to be there. Rosa's parents would have probably shut Boyle down, Gina was needed for the B plot, and anyone else wouldn't have been as believable. Plus, a reminder that Jake and Rosa have known each other for many years, so the fact that Jake actually has met her parents before was a very nice touch. I do love the supportiveness of the entire precinct, though no surprise there. Holt created a good dynamic with the precinct, for sure. I even loved Hitchcock wanting to ask Rosa a question, got shot down, and acknowledged that it was the right call. Danny Trejo as Rosa's father? Since I've been seeing him quite a bit these last few months on my screen, I am totally pleased with the casting choice. He fit right in as Rosa's father. Plus, he even is taking the time to be supportive of his daughter, even if Rosa's mom isn't there yet. I think it's more realistic with there being a struggle with acceptance, especially in the older generation. It's just good to see the chance to change from Rosa's father. Gina's return annoyed me for the first episode. She was just plain mean to Amy; it felt like they overloaded on it because of her return back, when Gina usually doesn't go all in on the Amy hate; it's usually just a few comments here and there, not an entire scene of it. Also, the Holt/Rosa hug was very nice. He doesn't give out hugs much, if at all, and he's never given out a genuine hug like that, so it was great. Now, for the second episode. I really enjoyed The Godfather scene, with Boyle making it simple for Holt to follow with Diane Keaton's relatives. It made me laugh how Jake was getting slightly offended by it. I also loved Rosa and Amy going to the SAPO to get the permit and her brain broke with the contradicting forms. Oh boy, how many times I've run into similar problems in my life. The fact that Hitchcock knew so much about breast pumps also creeped me out, like Terry. I didn't actually find Gina awful here. Once they tone down on her mean comments, she's not as bad of a character and I can actually tolerate her. And the fact that she left work because she missed her daughter? That was kind of endearing. I also want to say how much I like they're using Hitchcock this season. It seems like they've put good use out of Scully the last few seasons, so I'm glad they're showing some more love toward Hitchcock. I loved him going with Rosa and Amy to help file that permit. No! Don't threaten Kevin! Now I'm worried about Holt and Kevin. 4 Link to comment
