Yes, to all the strong female characters in this show (including one of the villians)---even the little girl this week was strong. And that the males seem to respect them. It would be perfect if there were a female or two who wasn't hot....the equivalent of Michael Emerson, say...but can't have it all. On that vein... is it my imagination or has Carter lost a significant amount of weight? Surely it can't be the uniform she's wearing now---they usually add lbs.
