It's a Drew episode! Yay! Let's focus on him and Jordan first. I love that we are seeing Jordan interact with someone other than TC. This is an ensemble cast, and so we need to spend time working on showing the relationships between everyone. Drew's comment to Krista about how difficult it is to be friends with his boss was a little too spelled out. Does that make sense? It felt like Drew was walking us through the issue. He could have just said being friends with your boss is weird. Do you want to see more of Jordan and Drew's friendship?
I love that we get to see more of Ragosa and Landry. They have such an interesting relationship that is fun to watch. I will say that it felt like Landry was being a bit too hard and rude when she tells Ragosa to stop being a dick. Her entire conversation with him seems even meaner than tough love. I expected for Ragosa to make some comment on it, but instead, he just takes her comments in stride. Did you think Landry was being a little too hard on Ragosa or did he need to hear it that way?
Let’s chat cases, shall we? This episode definitely featured a lighter case load, which is great considering we had a lot of personal storylines during this episode. I actually didn't mind that there weren't twenty million cases. The character stuff is fantastic. I watch because I love the characters. Best case of the night is definitely Topher and Kylie because Topher is adorable during it. The hog is a nice, strange touch. I loved Ragosa’s scenes with Bruce (the hog). Also, what person wouldn't save her own sister's life?
Krista has been crushing on Drew hardcore, and she makes her move in this episode. Good for her for having the guts, but it doesn't really go as planned. This is the first time that we get to hear Drew talk about why he hides his sexuality. We learned in the pilot that TC knows, but there isn't much of a conversation there. Plus, his conversation with Krista is the most open we have ever seen Drew. It's a new sight, and I like it. Krista and Drew’s friendship has the potential to be one of my favorites.
