Hahahahah! It's hard to believe such a useless person could have gotten a job at the FBI in the first place, but that sure was entertaining.

Rusty is a jerk.

Is Mary back to her old hair stylist from TC days? That was some vintage Raydor hair she had going on.

And I'll just pretend that awkward Taylor scene didn't happen. Lalalala!

Well I think we could all agree with Flynn, Shay is a horses ass. But more and more Rusty is becoming a horses ass and the hard part to understand is why? And then he bails out of letting Gustavo what is going on and leaves it to Sharon. I don't think he earned as much respect as he hoped for from the team.

Well I hope that he at some point learns to start treating people with more respect. He was all about having a normal life and friends and I cant see how anyone could stand how he treats them. Talk about self absorbed.

Interesting how informing Taylor was handled. It basically was we're dating but She is wanting beyond slow progression and Andy is finding it too slow. The chaparone comment was pretty telling about the actual progression of the relationship. I think what gets me most about this paring is I would think that Sharon would want someone who is a little more confident. Andy seems like a puppy following her around to be petted.

That's why they were never a good pairing to begin with. But hey, who am I to argue with thousands of screaming fangirls?

I always laugh when Duff says Rusty is based on himself, just like he said the same about Brenda before. You must be a real asshole, Mr. Duff. Your characters are self-absorbed jerks.

I reached my breaking point with Rusty last week when he was pretending to help out so he could find out about Gustavo. And then he just stood there and took Sharon's compliments. What a jerk, seriously. Don't even get me started on the way he used TJ or the way he dumped that crap on Sharon. Grrrrr.

I'm with you. Totally lost it with Rusty last week. And instead of changing his behavior he just admits to feeling bad about it and let's it go at that. It'll be insteresting to see if everything comes to a head between Sharon and Rusty when She talks to him about the dating thing.

I think it's funny that we see more of the Patrice and Provenza relationship in development than we do Sharon and Andy. Must drive the shippers nuts.

I bet now it's just like "They Are Dating" and that will have to be it. Doubt we'll ever actually see that. Perhaps Andy can be there at Christmas or something. Lame!

Also, still zero chemistry between the two of them, I just don't get what those shippers are seeing that I am clearly missing.

A friend I have been discussing with (ranting, to be honest) about Rusty's behavior pointed out that when someone asked Duff about consequences for Rusty's actions the previous week in the FB Q&A - he basically effectively answered that it's fine for him not to held accountable for it because he "feels guilty" and that's his punishment... so I'm beginning to really understand why Rusty, and previously Brenda, were the characters that they are now. ><'

If not obvious, I've gone right past my breaking point with Rusty now, which is sad. :\

LOL - Tbh, Patrice and Provenza - I ACTUALLY ship a lot of. I still multi-ship Sharon, but I'm not convinced by the Sharon-Andy ship currently. Not with how they started writing it early on and not with how they've written it so far this season either. Though this week's scene in Taylor's office was okay.... Maybe. Sort of. LOL Amusingly awkward maybe? I don't understand why Andy had to go out of his way to make the chaperone comment (well, I do, but it doesn't help the writers convince met that the ship works). *sigh* I'm just REALLY GLAD that they showed the notification scene in Taylor's office at all.

Also, I still find it completely unrealistic and implausible that the high-ups in the LAPD would be so blase about an interoffice romance between a superior officer and her subordinate. *sigh* But then again, I would have given up on the show long ago if I was watching for good writing. :3

You know, I agree, except my boss who is the head of Prosecution, is married to one of the head lawyers in the same division, and she wouldn't even be there if not for him, because frankly she is a useless lawyer. And I work at the UN! And nobody bats an eyelash.

But at least *someone else* does her performance appraisal, lol

Well - they do say that nepotism is indeed well and alive in the world, though that's a bit ironic. XD

Of note, that's a pretty cool job! :D
