Jane: “Let’s assume that both victims were killed by the same person.”
Maura: “I’m not willing to assume that.”
Jane, Maura, and Jack finally have their dinner together. Then things get a little weird. Why would Jack give Jane so nice of a gift? There was this fear that maybe he was showing interest in her by giving her the baseball. It is just a weird storyline, and there really doesn't seem to be a point to all of it except maybe to include Angela now that she is no longer working at the police station. Speaking of Angela, it would have been nice to get a little check in to see how the job search is going.
There is huge potential for an intense last part of the episode. Jane is trapped with a wounded Tasha while the hitman is in the building. Then what happens? Nothing. The writers decide to focus on showing Jane trying to keep Tasha conscious and placing phone calls out. It’s alright, but the excitement factor doesn't kick in again until Jane is outside of the elevator. Personally, the suspense factor is more enjoyable than watching Jane place calls. There could have been more fighting or more of the hitman maybe trying to break into the elevator or yelling at Jane and Tasha saying they’re trapped.
Welcome the newest member of the Boston homicide team, Nina Holiday. She seems to be working in the tech department, and she isn't actually a homicide detective. Korsak thought that this would be a better fit, and it fills Frost’s spot, sort of. Nina is a good addition to the team, and it’s great to have some new blood. What’s still unclear is Frankie’s job. Jane asks Korsak about Frankie, and Korsak says his job is still the same. Frankie isn't a homicide detective, but he is always there. This is something that has been bothersome for a while.
What did you think of the episode? Do you like Nina? Does anyone understand why a pregnant Jane is being allowed to leave and go off on her own? Leave me your thoughts in a comment below.
