    in which hot chick with gun teaches the Doctor lady to drop her natural Doctorly aversion to guns and get with the gun thing:

    you have to fight back, don’t take it lying down, it’s hard to come back from that (otherwise)

    considering what we know happened to hot chick with gun this is an indicative choice of words and obviously meant to justify this stance..

    if it breaks some Hippocratic oath, just stitch them up after you blast them!

    it continues in this frontier type guns are needed to protect our virtue vein:

    Hot chick with gun:

    You’re not the terminator honey, you’re just looking to protect yourself! imagine someone you love (was)…

    there we have the American justification for the right to bear arms..

    Rather worryingly, the doctor finally shoots then unaccountably starts panting..hmm..she has been converted to a hot chick with gun and found the process of firing hot in itself! wonderful..

    Noah’s sons continue to propose the military history type tactics instead of the Prof eg. the blitz evacuation

    The rest is all a bit Hansel & Gretel meet the local paedophile i felt..

    nb. the place of safety was called Hidden Frontier Ranch (for that Frontier feel) and had a giant flagpole with requisite American flag in the front, lingered over lovingly by the camera..does every homestead in America have a flag? certainly regular houses in the suburbs do, sigh, Jingoism reigns..

    Apart from all these usual present ickinessess the episode zipped by meaning it must be improving as i wished it was longer

    @Kissington:

    cheers for that:)

    ah yes, the Mayor, he of the i came up the hard way speech and “don’t ever tell me i don’t know what it’s like to be black” (coz his Dad shovelled coal!)whilst his black aide cringed silently and the “Richmond has a rainbow coalition going…”i won’t repeat the words here..

    @haveadrinkonme:

    Yes, i used to watch all those but reached saturation point. Too much gore, torture, women victims.underground lairs, chains, basements, cupboards, ad infinitum.. Criminal Minds had an amusing touch of The Champions about it tho!

    As you say, i too will probably still try and decipher the crime from what i learned specially the psychological profiling which was very interesting and why i kept watching Criminal Minds after dropping all the others till that too became too much..

    (see above)

    From all that: I will tend to suspect those nearest and dearest to her since that is a lot more common than the eponymous evil serial killer type although both could combine…

    @All:

    Yes, i agree that Regi’s relationship with Linden is very odd. If she is her ex-social worker it seemed a bit of a nightmare to me from the point of view of Linden for Regi to be bugging her vocally at work.

    Regi was pronouncing on Linden in i felt a patronising and judgemental way. My take on it was that Linden was putting up with it since Regi was providing free 24/7 childcare. Not a small thing for a single parent.

    I agree with @Devongirl that this is way over the boundary like over the border more like..Granted they may have become friends however surely this is highly unethical and similar to becoming friends with a patient? Yes, we remember Pierre, and how horribly wrong that went!..

    Just because i don’t like Regi at all is not this a sign of more than a little obsession with Sarah on her part?..

    @Kissington &@ All
    is Yitanes the Mayor? i can’t figure it out. If not, she should be..
    can’t fully decide about Richmond, like Troels, i think he isn’t as Mr. Perfect as he seems and yet?..
    last call for Linden, Gate 7…
    🙂
    nb. i’m aware that (for women mainly i think) having a dead wife automatically leads to sympathising with him=Ahh! and this may well be clouding my judgement.
    nb. here’s a thought:why go to great lengths to dispose of a body if you (the murderer i mean) have already cleaned all traces of DNA with Ammonium Hydroxide?
    ‘nother thought:since the tec guy said there were no traces of alcohol or any drugs in Rosie’s system:So she wasn’t overpowered by these means and she must have been with somebody she knew and trusted?
