John: “Wait you are a robot. What do you do with it?”
Dorian: “Probably the same thing you do with yours, nothing.”
John: “Hey, I do plenty with it.”

Captain Maldonado is testifying in order to put away Ethan Avery for murder. It is interesting to see a trial, especially since it allows viewers to see more of Maldonado. What is a little confusing is to how it is her case. Did this happen before she was made Captain? Did the case warrant that she take the lead on it instead of a detective? This is a minor detail, but still a little confusing. It is great to see her take on a more active role. Did you enjoy the case?
Well this might make me sound like a terrible person, but Maya’s parts were unnecessary and not that entertaining. It is great to see her interacting with John and Dorian in the car. There’s great humor, and it does provide some insights into all three of the characters. The scenes between just Maya and Dorian are ok, but it is too sappy for my taste. Perhaps all those years of watching “House MD” have ruined me, who knows. Did you enjoy hearing Maya’s tale?
Here are quick thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. John learns quite a bit about the differences between MX’s and DRN’s in this episode. It is absolutely fantastic. One thing that will be interesting is if Dorian ever does get his own place. Maybe he could room with John! Can you imagine the fan fiction possibilities? Speaking of possibilities, there sure are sparks between Detective Stahl and John in this episode. While there are small things learned about her, there still needs to be a big Stahl episode. This could have been it, but her kidnapping did not take up a lot of the episode. What was your favorite part of the episode?
