As to tonight's show, all I can say is wow --what a change of pace. Do I realistically see this happening, no
- but very good story telling.
Not sure what to think of Blake, I can see him going more rouge than Kalinda, though she has played things shady for some time.
Except that much of the story content was lifted from real life. IRL, the woman's story stank so bad, even the local networks did not cover it, except in passing. NBC linked online viewers to the released police interviews; a great many details of the character's story came from that police interview. The writers just twisted a few things to make the story more plausible, and left out the outrageous inconsistencies that made the story utterly unbelievable. And AFIK, the writers added the coverup part. But to air this story one week before elections -- bad judgment and bad taste, IMO. As if it wasn't obvious enough, the writers added the party affiliation into the story.
