HORATIO, WE NEED TO TALK. RIGHT NOW.
(* = on that note, I realize she's too young
Get over here, writers, I'm not letting you off the hook either. Why? Why would you do that? You see, I could believe it if it in some way made sense. If it really were one of the worst, most despicable, unapologetic criminals we've ever seen, I could understand it and maybe even get behind and/or rationalize it. But THAT GUY? This is just...do you want me to hate Horatio? Do you honestly want that? Because I do. You win. I hate him; I hate him just as much as any anti-Caruso viewer. I'm going to finish out this season, and then so help me God, I am sorely tempted to drop the show entirely next year. I totally, totally understand why Khandi Alexander left, and so even though I'm usually devastated and/or bitter when actors do that, for her, I have no qualms or hard feelings at all.
Yep, I think that's about all I have to say about this episode. Although I would like to register my shock and delight that Horatio appears to have gone shopping and bought a new slate-blue checkered shirt, which is second only to my shock and delight that he is continuing to do lab work. It's such a strange sight that it hypnotizes me until I'm tricked into watching the evidence-processing montages. Do you know how long it's been since I watched an evidence-processing montage? Wow.
[Edit: Oh no wait! I did a little squee-dance for Eric's reaction to various events, most particularly the line "I've got nieces." Convenient/throwaway line or not, Uncle Eric is now a very happy fixture in my mind.]
