Andy: “Well I think the girl in me says I don’t have a dress.”
The main component of this episode dealt with the aftershock of Jo and Luke sleeping together, and Andy finding out. Everything seemed to happen quickly. Andy caught on to some of the hints awful fast, although the Jo/Luke chemistry has been boiling ever since Jo arrive. The fact that Luke’s reaction to sleeping with Jo is to push up the wedding did forcibly speed along the discovery process, but Andy still does put it all together rather fast. On the one hand, Andy is a cop and knows how to piece things together, but on the other hand, it was still all very sudden. This storyline could have been dragged out an episode or two longer than it was. However, those who were waiting for the demise of Luke and Andy would disagree. Andy’s reaction was very realistic, and the scene where she walks out of the motel room was just perfect. How did everyone else feel about the ruin of Luke and Andy? What will be interesting is seeing how long it takes Sam to figure out what happened, and how he will react.
Gail: “She kept calling you Craig.”
Chris: “Craig’s a great name.”
Another component of the episode was Gail’s mother coming to visit, Superintendent Peck. Gail’s mother has been briefly mentioned starting from the pilot episode, but has never been seen (if memory serves). It was nice to see that family element, and her mom’s reactions to Chris, or well Craig, was very entertaining. Personally, Superintendent Peck brought back Jenny Shepard memories (NCIS reference), so that was a tad distracting. However, that is just a personal issue. Another interesting element of the unveiling of Gail and her mother is that the way Gail paints a picture of her mother, she is not the most loving mother. The interesting part comes in when Gail’s fellow cops (and viewers) get to see Gail and her mother interact, Superintendent Peck appears loving to her daughter, but it is almost a show, a front for her slightly harsher intentions.
