It's taken me a while to catch up but I agree, that was a great intro. Not only from a dramatic perspective but also because it was something I don't remember seeing to such an extent in any crime show. It gave me a new appreciation for those guys in the air.
The nepotism of casting Sosie Bacon would normally rub me the wrong way, but this season has been so consistently good that I can overlook it and she seems to be a decent actress too. Cutting back the appearances by Brenda's parents has helped.
This week was another example of the fine balance between comedy and drama this shows straddles with ease. The Sanchez, Tau and Provenza garage scene and the ring reveal were very funny. The ending the complete opposite.
