  • Fun filler episode. More reviews at

    Fun filler episode. There are always going to be a few of those in a season. I don’t mind them. They’re not going to make a huge impact on us, but they do entertain, and that’s perfectly fine with me.

    I had no clue what this episode was going to be about. I hadn’t even read the episode description—that’s just how busy my life has been. Anyway, I went into the episode blind and was pleasantly surprised.

    I actually liked the case. I wasn’t sure who the guilty party was. I knew it had to be either, the other boxer, the wife or Mickey. However the way the information was presented I was never sure just who was guilty until Mickey was found dead.

    Jordan and Woody—this is what makes shipper fans happy. Yes they want more but this type interaction will keep the shippers content for the moment. This was more of the old CJ that was fun, playful and gave you hope that a happy ending is in sight for Jordan and Woody. Me I’m no longer in either boat, get together or not, either way is fine with me, but watching Jordan and Woody tonight was fun. More fun than last season’s turmoil. What is up with the Alpha Male Syndrome? Danny and Woody (more so Woody) are quite childish at times (much to our amusement). Danny tries to be a bit more adult about it, but he still eggs Woody on.

    Side Note: I’m so glad NBC posted the deleted scene because after the episode aired I couldn’t figure out for the life of me how the two episodes (CJ and Las Vegas) connected.

    Bug and Lily confuse me. I’ve never really been a fan of that match up, but I see how they fit together well…that said I can’t figure out where the two of them are heading. Lily doesn’t tell Jeffery she’s pregnant. Bug thinks Jeffery knows. Bug gives Lily space. Lily doesn’t want space. Lily wants Bug but Lily’s having Jeffery’s baby. Bug decides he doesn’t want Lily right now.

    Is your head spinning yet? I’ve come to the conclusion there are too many ‘doesn’t wants’ in their relationship. They need to figure out what they want—then maybe things will work out for them. Right now, they’re just on two different pages…

    I do like how the CJ cases relate back to personal issues in the characters lives. I’ve noticed more and more, that each case will relate to certain issues that each character is dealing with.

    Music—I love CJ and its music. Flashdance made me laugh. It’s always a fun moment when a few strands of music tie into the episode and at the same time bring back memories of the 80s :)

    My one disappointment—we didn’t get to see the aftermath of Lu’s death. I know we jumped a month in time (and I believe in the next episode we jump again in time). I know the writers NEEDED to jump in time; however I’m still disappointed we didn’t see any sort of emotion/mourning from our characters.moreless
  • Woody, Jordan, Danny and Delinda at a boxing match-- the winner ends up dead. Toss in a little sexual tension, a pregnant Lily, a miffed Bug, and a smitten-kitten Nigel...

    1) Nigel is a funny kid. He's all smitten with Delinda. Idinit cute? He's about to fall over himself, look at his little poonum...

    2) Bug! Nooooooooo! Come on dude, quit being so "noble." You know you're in love with her. Just suck it up and work through it already! PS Jeffery's a butt.

    3) We all know Jordan and Woody are going to end up together eventually. Part of me says, "Just get them together already!" and the other part knows that the waiting for it to happen is even better. So we'll see. I liked seeing them spending some time together in this ep, especially at the end (in the elevator).

    4) Delinda as an ionic spectroscopy expert/genius? Iiiiiinteresting... THAT'S one I didn't see coming.

    5) Danny and Woody trying to go at it in the ring...right on top of a dead Micky. Ha ha ha!moreless
  • Main:Semi-crossover episode involving Danny and Delinda from LasVegas travel to Boston for a vacation and watch a Boxing match in which the Champ a close friend to Danny ends up dead. Sub:Nigel falls in love with Delinda, Bug and Lily face their future.moreless

    While I don't particularly enjoy seeing Lily involved heavily in story lines because her character tends to be whinny and overstated, I can't imagine her not being on the show. Which brings be to a crossroads on this episode because it is interesting, but has her as the focus on one of the story lines.

    This episode was about a boxer killed by a wife that saw him as a burden, a car accident from 22 years prior, Nigel fell head over heals, and Macy appeared calm and sure of himself.

    I do enjoy the crossover episodes, they bring an extra spice to the show, but this was more of just a guest appearance spot nothing happened that will apply to Las Vegas. It was nice to see Nigel have someone on the show that understood him, and be interested in his world, it was just a shame that it was only as a guest appearance. It was nice to see Macy sure of himself, CJ needs to bring the edge back that they started off the season with.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: When the dead woman's son comes in the first time, he rips up the letter he had, but when he comes in the second time, Bug shows him the letter, intact.

    • When Nigel meets Delinda he says he heard she looked like a supermodel. Molly Sims (Delinda) was a supermodel before becoming an actress.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Bug: She had the soundtrack for Flash Dance in her cassette player, so I guess I could put the time of death at sometime in the 80's.

    • Woody: Long as we're clear – (points to himself) cop, (points at Danny) non-cop.
      Danny: Yeah, you say that every time I'm here. Think of something new.

    • Bug: Maybe not everything has a happy ending.
      Lily: You want to talk about the case, let's talk about the case. If you want to talk about me and you, us. Then let's talk. Cause I am sick of not talking. Not talking to Jeffrey, not talking to you.
      Bug: Yeah. Well, who's fault is that?
      Lily: With Jeffrey, it's mine. And with walk on eggshells, Bug.
      Bug: What's that supposed to mean?
      Lily: I walked out. On my wedding. I came to you. I made it very clear what I wanted. And then this happened. And everything changed, I know it did. And you've been giving me time and space to figure out what I want. Now, what about you, Bug? What do you want now? Have you thought about it? Cause you sure haven't stepped up to say so.

    • (Jordan is performing an autopsy on a human brain)
      Jordan: No, there isn't any lethal trauma anywhere. The brain feels hydrocephalic. Typical for a fighter, but nothing that indicates cause of death.
      Delinda: I could really use a candy bar, maybe some chips.
      Woody: This really makes you hungry?

    • Woody: I just don't like seeing you flirt with some… pretty boy.
      Jordan: I'll keep that in mind.
