This past epi, though, was simply a great dramatic show. My favorite story was the one with Kate and the older gentleman. In fact, to be honest, I would have preferred to see more of him and hear more of his story than to have that whole refugee plotline, but ce la vie, as Collette would say. I'm glad we had the little bit that they showed.
There were lots of good things about the epi. Loved the opening scene with Dean trapped in the cockpit with Ted blathering on. Been there, done that. Used to have a co-worker who never knew when to be quiet and would drive everybody crazy.
Loved the scenes with Dean and Collette, especially when they argued about the refugee. Of course Dean was going to give in, but it was still a good scene.
Loved Ted's remark, "Aren't all tower people supposed to speak English?" Great research by the writers. Yes, pilots and control tower agents are required to speak English, the international language of air traffic.
Loved having the sassy Maggie back. She had my favorite line. "While she deals with the guys with the guns, how about I make you a nice cup of hot tea?" The look on the jerk's face was priceless.
Ah, the infamous baggage dumping. We used to dread hearing the ramp agents radio up to us, "The plane's too heavy, we're unloading some bags." At least we were able to eventually reunite them with the customers , though.
The ending was a bit cliched (imitating the ending of "Spartacus" has been done many times before), but it was still cute. And since we didn't find out what happened to Dean after the Ginny affair, it was good to see the resolution of this one.
