A major throwback to that massively popular quarantine meme where Jada Pinkett told husband Will Smith she got into an 'entanglement with August' Alsina, this episode of NCIS: NOLA titled 'Into Think Air' sees Carter say the word unironically right at the end of the episode when he and Khoury reflect on how she helped him overcome deep-rooted family issues and treatment between him and his mother. The beginning of the episode sees Carter thank Khoury for helping him see the light, and she joked by pulling out her phone and asking him to repeat said lines so she can have video proof of it.

But while the two laugh it off and get down and busy solving the case of a 14-year-old's kidnapping, they come around in the end of the episode eventually to discuss the matter still left open. Khoury and Carter have one of those touching heart to hearts, where the usually cold and aloof new team member tells our warm and seasoned NCIS agent how the problem with 'entanglements' is expectations - thus alluding to something more than just your regular coworker relationship. And with the show being on its final arc, it doesn't seem too unrealistic.
On this episode, Dalton is shown to have taken a payoff to bring a brutal murderer to the United States to live the American dream, and then later produced phony evidence to implicate honorable SEALs in the crimes that he was complicit in covering up.
The episode starts with Sebastian undercover. He goes in with a team of white nationalists, who form a sort of a militia. He is there to investigate the death of Naval Aviation Mechanic, Jeff Tegan. While undercover with the RAC (the militia), Sebastian maintains contact with his team, relaying information. Normally Pride would have gone on such a mission, but Sebastian has to step in since the former got burned.
Now that Season 10 is wrapping up tonight, I won't have to rush to my DVR next Thursday to make sure it's set up to record Bones correctly. I've never missed an episode of the FOX procedural about world-renowned forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, the closest character on TV to me: a scientist who studies human bones, tall and dark-haired, and happy to throw around anthropological terms for kicks. But I don't watch obsessively because I'm a super-fan. I started out reading Dr. Kathy Reichs' novels because they were engaging, well-written, and well-researched forensic anthropology that I could plow through on a plane flight. When her titular heroine Dr. Brennan made the leap to the silver screen, I had to watch, even though I knew the television format would change things considerably.
Since Season 6, I've been writing critical summaries of each episode because I used to follow the blog of a doctor who did the same for House, M.D. For five years, I have plunked myself down on the couch every week with a laptop and a stiff drink, furiously taking notes on all the things the Bones writers, prop people, makeup effects, and actors got right... and wrong... about forensic anthropology.
1. Season 8, Episode 11 - The Archaeologist in the Cocoon. Considering I actually liked the previous archaeology cross-over (see below), this storyline about an archaeologist murdered for his earth-shattering find should have been a slam-dunk. But this is by far the worst written episode of the series, from both a forensic and an archaeological standpoint. Dr. Brennan and Dr. Edison's interpretation of the palaeoanthropological remains makes no sense, they butcher a huge number of vocabulary terms (including Homo sapiens), their analysis is confusing, and the earth-shattering finding is nothing of the sort. To top it all off, Brennan licks a bone to show Booth it's real, which is unscientific and just icky.
2. Season 9, Episode 14 - The Master in the Slop. A vat of pig slop with human remains comes to the Jeffersonian, and Dr. Brennan and her team have to sort things out. On the surface, the forensics seem almost reasonable, but they suffer from being far too precise. The methods used for age-at-death and sex are real but are never used in isolation. Assessing ancestry or race is far more complicated than this episode makes it out to be. The team never gets a positive ID, which is an important part of any forensic case. The real kicker in this episode? The rampant sexism involved in the bait-and-switch plot in which Brennan is supposed to be honored as a woman in science and instead poses for a pin-up calendar. As an anthropologist, Brennan is undoubtedly well-versed in the topics of gender disparity in science and harassment of women in the field, so this plot is just skeevy.
2. Season 6, Episode 16 - The Blackout in the Blizzard. A blackout in D.C. forces the Jeffersonian team to get creative with their forensic analysis and not rely on their fancy magical machines. (Except that the Jeffersonian would absolutely have a generator. Anyway...) Having the team conquer a deadly, infectious virus before it spreads using things like Scotch-tape x-rays was fun and educational.
I'm an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Union College, and I write books about science for non-scientists. I have a BA in physics from Williams College and a Ph.D. in Chemical Physics from the University of Maryland, College Park (studying laser cooling at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in the lab of Bill Phillips, who shared the 1997 Nobel in Physics). I was a post-doc at Yale, and have been at Union since 2001. My books _How to Teach Physics to Your Dog_ and _How to teach Relativity to Your Dog_ explain modern physics through imaginary conversations with my German Shepherd; _Eureka: Discovering Your Inner Scientist_ (Basic, 2014), explains how we use the process of science in everyday activities, and my latest, _Breakfast With Einstein: The Exotic Physics of Everyday Objects_ (BenBella 2018) explains how quantum phenomena manifest in the course of an ordinary morning. I live in Niskayuna, NY with my wife, Kate Nepveu, our two kids, and Charlie the pupper. 041b061a72
