The one step too much…

Yes, I confess seeing Bobby having his shrink sessions, talking about hidden places of his mind and soul, wanted me also one talk about Alex.

But I want him to chat about his friendship, his trust – although ‘all people lie’, being ambiguous. But not a: ‘Do you love her?’ Whatever he would answer (What? C’mon, she is my partner.), fans will get hurt. See, I should be very careful what I wish.

But I watched the new trailer several times. Something is wrong. Of course the Network will make as much money as possible. They need as much people who watch Criminal Intent live to satisfy their advertising affiliates. How? Making a new trailer and creating much excitement with love.

When looking at Bobby’s clothes of the first three sessions, he wore a dark suit, white shirt and a tie at The Consoler. But in Boots on the Ground and also in The Last Street in Manhattan Bobby wore both times a dark suit (or jacket with dark jeans?) and a grey shirt without tie.

After the love question, Bobby burst out. He wants to give away his badge when the bosses want to have it. But that is not the same session. It’s not his reaction of: ‘Do you love her?’. The whole trailer is a mix.

Don’t look at Bobby. Okay, that is hard but take a look at the outfit of Dr. Severin. She asked the love question with big ear rings and in a black top/cardigan. When Bobby stood up and wants to give away his badge, she carries no ear rings or very small ones and a red blouse with a black jacket.

What do we learn? Not people lie, trailers lie.

Yes, I am a shipper but I don’t want an answer on a direct love question. I know the chances to hear the in my ears wrong answer is much bigger than to get satisfied.

[Sorry for the picture quality, the trailer was filmed with a camera of the TV. But THANK YOU SO MUCH my Vincent and Kathryn and CI source. I'm so lucky to have you. After reading all the trailer tweets last night I was so scarred but after watching the clip I'm soothed again.]


  1. Omg i want, no : NEED to see that video

  2. oh! antje, can you talk your source into uploading this for all of us? like youtube? I'd love to see it.

  3. Edited the entry with the download link. Click with your own risk ;o)

  4. thanks, antje! <3 i've watched it and i'll remain silent on the whole matter well known because well, we haven't seen the episode and i can't stand things out of context.

  5. Oh Antje!! So true! *Trailers lie* We should never forget that! I think it makes it sound like he'd give up his badge because he doesn't want to answer. But there is no getting away from the fact that the question was asked and we will have to see the answer/reaction...... Well, shoot.

  6. Great analysis - I did notice the inconsistencies in clothes, but I do detest the questionn being asked at all. I should've known. Leight had to other characters ask that question in the past. It's about as subtle as being hit by a train. No matter how this will go, it will probably not go well for all fans. Honestly, I don't like them just stirring the $h*t. I really can't take this today.

  7. Maybe he won't give a definite answer. It doesn't appear that he will answer "Yes, I'm madly in love with her" OR "I love her as a sister".
    His response "What? She's my partner!" is ambiguous. Knowing Bobby, he will refuse to discuss it further!
    (although as a shipper I would love a "Yes", but I'm not getting my hopes up!)

  8. Yeah, I came to the conclusion that it's a mix of shrink sessions. They're just giving us a tease I'm sure. As carolina said, she's my partner is not saying no. So there is hope they won't put the nail in the ambiguity we're so used to seeing with Goren and Eames so everyone can be happy. :-)

  9. Wow, this was some Sherlock work Antje. Shows how we so easily just look on the surface. Thanks for this. I've been completely put at ease.

  10. I cross my fingers that everyone will be happy after the answer of that question. We have four more new episodes to watch until we find out which parts of the trailer belong together.
