At least the show's use of San Francisco locations did not throw me out of the episode the way that the use of Frank's Restaurant did in this week's mothership episode. I lived in the Bay area before moving to Los Angeles, so I did recognize some familiar sights. It made sense to have the FBI involved in the case to at least give the gang a reason to go to San Francisco. I would have had issues with the NYPD just showing up and taking over when they are so far out of their jurisdiction.
Nice continuity with the use of Jo's daughter and having her be older than when we were first introduced to the character.
I have to say that the show does not seem to be as preachy as it was last season. They've shown that Mac is not invincible and he still has after effects of his shooting. Mac couldn't take off running after the suspect and keep up with him. It was nice to see him call for assistance in the park and there was a team effort in catching the perp.
Loved the tag with Flack finding his desk decorated with Mets memorabilia but I've always had a soft spot in my heart for his character.

It's as if they decided that they shouldn't have killed off Angel. So they just brought her back? They couldn't come up with any other stereotype of a woman that could be a love interest for Flack?
This is EXACTLY what I thought. Exactly. Haha, an Angel clone for Flack. Did he put in an order somewhere?
I would laugh my head off if he hit on her and she just said "Thanks, but not batting for your team, lol. Though you're hot, objectively speaking."
I stopped liking Angel when she joined Stella in that ridiculous let's put a guy in a container and send him to Cyprus on a freighter - how that never came back to bite them in the ass I don't know. But I still didn't want her killed, and I don't want a substitute if she's just there so Flack can have a love story too. Give her a frickin character which doesn't depend on who she's banging/preparing to bang, and then I'll like her.
Re. the episode - so, Jo's adorable little daughter turns into a snotty teen. Great. Just great. Apart from the fact that tv seems overly populated with them nowadays, it was obviously just a ploy so that Jo can look worriedly into the distance, projecting the case onto her own life. Oh fuck off, seriously.
I've had enough. OMG, a photo of a dead girl! Maybe she's alive! No, she's dead. She totally isn't! I stopped caring about halfway through.
