    Hi,


    Did anyone else notice that the last three or four episodes, Elliot and Olivia only make a slight appearance together, and then one of them dashes of for the rest of the episode? Is that just because they want to interchange the investigative-pairs, or is it a decision based on off-screen reasons?


    Thanks,


    Anouk.

    They were filming tandem episodes, which is why they appear to not be working together. Tandem eps are where MH and CM are working on different episodes. They usually do 2 to 4 eps a season this way.

    Fortunately there will not be any more "tandem" episodes this season which is a good thing since there are only a few episodes remaining. The "tandem'" episodes this season were filmed close together this season which is why it seemed they weren't together for a lengthy period of time. The episodes were POP & SPECTACLE which featured Chris and DIRTY & PURSUIT which featured Mariska.
