I didn't know Mark Harmon was in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas !! Oh man, my cousin wanted to give me the DVD and I told him I wasn't interested!! Talk about a moment of temporary insanity! Johnny Depp, Benicio del Toro *and* Mark Harmon!! What was I thinking?!
Maybe she meant it more in a "did I ever mention I come from money?"-kinda-way. I mean, her father pulling up in a limo kinda signifies the family's well-off, and maybe that hadn't come up before? I try to NOT read too much into stuff like that anymore, cuz as this season showed - we overestimate the writers...lol ;D So, my new motto: THINK SIMPLE.
BTW, wasn't it time we started that Season 5 speculation thread???
Then what's with the hysterical 911 call about her apartment going coop? She could have bought the building with her money. And the godawful bracelet she gave Tony? I still think Jeanne girl is a bit hinky...
In Blowback, the Frog says he has three children and two grandchildren, just to clear that up. Judging by the approximate age of Jeanne's mother and the Frog, I'm pretty sure Jeanne's his daughter, not his granddaughter.
Ah, thanks. I missed the last minutes of Blowback and never got around to watching that ep again (too much Jenny in it.). Yes, I think she's his daugther. He's supposed to be, what, 55 years? And she 30-ish?
. LaG would never hurt his daughter, he says everything he does now is for his family, protector and provider. He wasn't just talking about his grandchildren, IMO.
HA! Pieced together another little background detail. We know the Frog has grandchildren and we know that Jeanne is his daughter, and I *assume* she has no kids, which means that she has siblings. OK, random bit of info, but anything helps.
About her saying at the end "here's my secret"... Why would she say that. Her dad pulling up in a limo is not a secret, more of a surprise. And I think (may have to watch it again), she puts the emphasis on *my* when she says it. Why, did she think Tony has a secret?
I LOVED THIS EPISODE. LOVEDITLOVEDITLOVEDIT. *ducks the rotten tomatoes*
I'll admit I lowered my expectations to absolute zero not to be disappointed and it worked. Let's be honest, we all knew that Grenouille and Jeanne would be carried into season 5 (ok, I was hoping for one specific character death, but it would have been too soon after Paula ), and we all knew there was no possible way to squeeze all the story lines, loose ends and secrets into 43 minutes, resolve the lot AND leave us heady with anticipation from a breath taking cliff hanger.
Another shootout or character death would have been totally lame and a repeat of season 1-3. And there were only two big secrets: why is Jenny after Grenouille and what's the deal with Tony and Jeanne. We got one and at least the story lines of Grenouille and Jeanne have finally come together! Now let's pray the writers resolve everything in the first 3-4 episodes of season 5.
And this episode had great scenes!!! I loooove Gibbs and Fornell together! That carscene in front of Fornell's house? They both rock! Death glare from ex-wife? Hilarious.
Worried Ziva getting drunk with Ducky? Cute cute cute! Ziva having gutfeelings about Tony-in-trouble? Loved it loved it loved it!!
And Tony in Baltimore Cop mode!!! O my god!!! Hothothot. And Jeanne is totally going to call him on it, she's not an idiot. If she didn't suspect something, she does now. She may have been playing HIM this whole season with her whining and clinging and "you don't wanna buy a house with me?", setting him up for her father. (oh wow! tony angst)
I agree, this episode would have been even better if it had been episode 21 or so, but it wasn't.
And really, nothing, ab-so-lu-tely nothing could have been revealed that would have come as a surprise to us. Nothing. We tore this season apart pixel by pixel to find the clues.
The only downer for me was Jenny. I can't stand Lauren Holly's way of acting and her voice and twitching mouth get on my nerves, which makes the whole Grenouille storyline basically a teeth grinding experience for me, since there is so much Jenny in it, but hey!
