    The bar has not been open for long and Grey has been preocupied with that and other issues, so I don't find it unlikely at all that this is the first time Ansel has seen this. Ansel does not live with him, he was just staying over because Dex was gone overnight. And it threatens the stability of his world.

    The 180 change in her demeanor has been a little weird. She started as a real ballbuster, and then changed to being a marshmallow.

    Totally agree. The last was the weakest episode (for the reasons I stated above). Hopefully that will be a one time thing, but given this is ABC, I doubt it.

    I didn't think it was so much an ABC post-Sondra Rhymes thing,
    but more of a since the beginning of time across the board, shows with an attractive lead male and attractive lead female thing to play up romantic tension.

    Of course there are some refreshing exceptions (Steed&Mrs.Peel Avengers, Elementary, ...), but I think audiences and writers tend to ship the leads, especially if it doesn't require adding new characters.

    But I agree it's annoying.

    I just kind of noticed it happening after her shows became very popular is all. It may not have anything to do with her directly as much as it just seems that for ABC those types of shows got ratings. They started putting that type of things into shows where you would not think it makes sense.

    The tension between Dex and Grey's new girlfriend is getting tedious. I might put this show down if Dex hooks up with Grey. I also won't be happy if Liz(?) ends up being some kind of spy/mole.

    Agreed. I'm really over the Dex/Grey thing already and it's barely started. Leave it alone!

    I guess Harry was right after all, at least for TV shows.

    I thought they did already, when they first met?

    It seems like she almost has to be. She immediately seduces him, then very soon asks him for a job (even though she seemed to have one already), and then she tries to stop sleeping with him while keeping the job because she thinks sleeping with him is causing trouble with Dex, which she probably figured was her best bet to stick around now that she has her "in".

    My guess is Liz is some sort of FBI. She's investigating Grey's role within the whole criminal organization.

    Possible, but I guess it is more likely she is not law enforcement at all, since it would be rare for that type to have sex with their target.

    Seems unlikely that an FBI agent would sleep with someone under investigation as a pretext to further that investigation. Of course, it is TV...

    Can a convicted felon even get a liquor licence legally in Oregon? I guess I could look it up but I'm lazy.
