I finally got a chance to watch this one, a couple days late. Overall, I thought it was a very good episode and I knew from the beginning that it was probably going to be Max who died, although in a different way than I expected. Although I was right about a medical condition, I was thinking more along the lines of cancer. It's sad that just when he gets a pacemaker and is feeling better that he gets killed protecting the kids.
I'm curious as to why he eventually died because it appeared that he had been stabilized after the shooting. I'm sure it was just complications from the surgery to save his life but part of me was wondering if the pacemaker had something to do with it. I mean, they used the GPS from the pacemaker to track him, it's not so wild an idea that maybe someone was able to stop it remotely. Especially on this show, where Pelant could basically do magic electronically. LOL! I guess we'll probably never know.
I like this story arc but I agree with Sharon that everything has seemed rushed and forced so far. They seem to come to resolution very quickly and in questionable ways. They make it seem too easy. LOL! I have to admit that the warlord's son had me convinced in the beginning that he wasn't involved, but of course he was. He was using his wife's properties to torture his victims which makes me wonder if the wife was involved as well, or if he was just with her to use her resources.
The first thing I noticed about Hodgins was that he shaved!! Sharon is right that it makes him look younger but I prefer just a little scruff on his face.
It was pretty funny when Cam got mad at Arastoo for letting it slip that she watches a home shopping channel. And of course TJ was adorable with his comment that "someone's in trouble". Hahahaha!!
