Advertisements Stunt casting seems to be happening a lot more this season than previously. We get a couple of NFL players. They didn't do too badly though. Still a little awkward, but it could have been much worse. It's an interesting way to get rid of Jessica. It's not like there is more on-screen chemistry over either Jessica or Grace. Not sure why there was a need to move to another love interest for Nolan. Jessica's possible shifty character never came out. I wonder if they will come back to Jessica at a later date with that (so that Nolan can have a *whew* moment) or for some other reason. Seemed like a weird dead end. Glad she wasn't pregnant. That's a whole extra ball of wax that the show didn't need yet. It just seems a bit out of the blue to suddenly toss Jessica's character, though. Harper and Chen were an interesting couple. I don't agree that Chen should have attempted to hit Harper. Seemed like Harper wasn't training and that could come across poorly on the bodycam. Smart of Chen to look for wear on the treads of the bomb house. I wasn't expecting that one. I was expecting Chen to shoot him through the doorway since she could see it (at least presumably due to the camera view that we had). Didn't expect her to throw him through the window. I did like Harper pulling the PTA/football thing. I've got challenge coins from work but I don't carry one in my pocket. In the civilian world, we just don't pull them out. Military is another story. I guess they do them as well in the PD? Anyone have any experience with that? Usually higher challenge coins trump the others and you win with that. So Harper would have automatically won since Governor is higher than Chief. I've got one from a 3-star Admiral. I'm pretty sure that trumps Governor. The sliding across the table was cute. So was Harper deciding to give it to Bradford. She made an important point about gender bias. Then the diamond/football thing. Kind of a strange coupling, story-wise. I just doubt that Lopez would have been calling on the phone and get that lucky to get her pals right there. Such a serious coincidence.
