Last Season's Finales

Recap: “Aliyah”, NCIS’s season 6’s finale opens with Ziva driving to her apartment. She then finds Rivkin and Tony Fighting and Tony has killed Rivkin (a member of the Mossad).The team must now go to Israel. After Director Vance and Director David (of Israel) settle the dilemma the team gets ready for their return home; however, Ziva will not be returning with them. Ziva’s father, director David, feels that she is no longer loyal to him and her country. To prove to him she is loyal she must finish Rivkin’s mission. At the ending of the show we see a bruised and beaten Ziva in a chair being tortured and questioned about NCIS.

What a cliff hanger leaving Ziva all tore up who knows what will come out of next season. Will Ziva come back? I personally hope so because she adds a lot to the show. I’m not sure that this episode was very crime related Tony did kill someone but there really wasn’t much focus on the crime itself. Not saying it wasn’t entertaining because it definitely was.

FOX’s Bones:
Recap: Season’s finale “The end in the beginning” takes place while Booth is in surgery to remove his brain tumor and after the surgery while he is in Acoma for 4 days he dreams that he and Brennan are married club owners. In this dream a man is shot in the restroom of their club and anyone could be the victim. At the end of the episode Booth awakens and appears to be confused and asks Brennan “who are you”. I agree with Searching Bones blog when they state “given that it was an alternate reality episode, I think Hart did a great job of writing it” because my experience watching it confirms it. I thought that the episode was a very good episode leaving good possibilities for the next season. There wasn’t anything I would add or take away from this episode it was all around a good episode.

NBC’s Law and Order:
Recap: Law and Order season 19 concluded with “The drowned and the saved”. Charles Whitley director of Boland Initiative, a large charity, was stabbed with a knife in the back. After a somewhat confusing investigation Rita, the governor’s wife, was found to be the one behind Whitley’s murder. Cutter leads the governor to believe he has proof of his “dark world” and convinces the governor into resigning.

Okay, so who really liked the governor? If I could have changed anything about the episode it probably would have been more than a resignation. This episode was hard to follow but I liked how it was all tied to the governor’s wife.

The best crime drama this week would definitely have to go to Law and Order because the other episodes focused on having a good finale instead of solving a crime. What made Law and Order’s crime solving better was it solved a murder and put the guilty person away so did Bones but it was in alternate reality. Although Law and Order in my opinion was the crime drama based on crime being solved the show itself wasn’t the most entertaining. The most entertaining episode I believe was NCIS because it left a character in danger and the viewers such as me want to know what comes next.

  1. I definately agree about Bones how the finale leaves good possibilities for next season! It could go in a number of directions. I saw the episode and I found it a little bit confusing but your review cleared it up for me, so thank you!
