PC, my bad. I started a thread for this episode discussion. I realized I put the wrong ep number in the title and modified it. You must have started this thread as I was editing my original post. Sorry for the confusion.

I felt I watched two episodes. Absolutely re-watch worthy. Favorite line, "you ungrateful little prick. Oh, I thought it was the nose." Psych session was good, but found it a bit of a distraction so early on in the episode.

Overall I liked the episode. I noticed it was written by Warren Leight. It did remind me of Betrayed especially considering they used the names Avery, cougar and the same murder weapon Viagra (I guess they got permission to actually use the real name instead of V-boost). I did miss Dr. Rodgers they could have had her tell the detectives about the Viagra. I will take any excuse to see her. The best part for me was the psych session, you can tell he has let his guard down a little bit. But I doubt that will last especially considering the previews. I wonder what will be the question she asks that really presses his button and makes him walk out?
He could have been lying about his feelings, but if he is, he's lying to himself. It makes sense that he thinks of her as a sister. A romantic releationship has been taboo for 11-12 years. Also, Goren has a point about being able to have a professional relationship without it becoming romantic.
For me the episode was OK, but blah, stodgy. Maybe it's just Warren Leight! I didn't care about the victim, though the wife was probably the real victim. Eames with her snark had it right: "the dilettante, the drama queen, or some other alcoholic snob." I didn't care. Goren and Eames seemed to be wading in knee-high water...trudging through the case.
Enjoyed Goren's "footwork" shall we say. His foot blocking the pocket door, comparing foot size with the suit of armor and the size 13 vibe were all welcome in a quiet episode. His knowledge of wines (Remember "Badge"? You like good food!) and "The Nose" saying he didn't have a cop's palate (the look on Eames' face!) were welcome bits in, dare I say, a palatable episode that was very, very dry to the taste.
Last week's episode was bubbly champagne. This week was weak and a bit flat, but I'll have to watch again.
Can someone reiterate for me the order of filming? With USA screwing around with the order...it just seemed awkward. I don't know.
Can someone explain how the wife knew what the key was for?
The episode just felt disjointed. I was concentrating on the wine angle in the beginning (3 bottles, 6 bottles, auctions, euros) then I had to switch gears for the psych session. I was distracted because I couldn't stop thinking about Goren sitting in the chair not answering the question on being lonely. Switch gears again to the wife, model and prenup (oh, and lets not forget the actress/escort). This thing was all over the map. Goren being quirky Goren saved it for me.
A friend of mine told me recently that this season was all about "blowing kisses" to the fans. How apt.
I am happy about the "blowing kisses" to the fans aspect of this short season. How many TV series get this opportunity? The fans loyalty to LOCI and the characters is formidable, but these days that doesn't get rewarded very often.
As far as writers in the upcoming weeks, I'd love to see a topnotch Stephanie SenGupta, Marlane Gomard Meyer, or Diana Son episode and we can also look forward to the rewrite by Rene Balcer.
