Purgatory

I have mixed feelings about this one.I like that Bobby was doing what he was doing (still a bit confused on that), but I didn't like that he kept Alex out of the loop...if that makes any sense? Not just confused about episodes obviously :-)

My take was that he COULDN'T tell Alex that he was doing what he was doing - I will ALWAYS take his side of course! Remember, when he was arrested, he asked Ross if it was OK to tell her now, or something to that affect. This is another one I can't bear to watch very often, not because it isn't wonderful but because it's too much of a trauma. Isn't this the one where Eames tells him all his wounds are 'self-inflicted' too? I wanted to slap her up-side her head; not for the first time either ;0)

Beautiful caps, this is definitely an intense episode. BG could not tell her he was undercover, I know it's just TV, but real cops are in situations where they would not tell partner/spouse what is going on for fear of endangering them/situation. He should have told her he was doing something he couldn't talk about, and left it at that. But guess he didn't think she would get involved in it.
But I still want to smack her over that comment, she must not know much about him, or really wanted to hurt him deeply.
BTW I am not a shipper, but the way she reacted to being outta the loop was as if they had once been lovers (which I don't see at all), that's the only explanation for her behavior I can imagine. AND...the scene where they have guns at each others' heads - Bobby didn't arrange that, someone knew BG was in that room, and yet, sent Eames in. But she blames him for it.

Suspended for six months without pay! And once again labeled as crazy. To me this showed just how much Bobby loved being a Detective. Most people would have said...Screw you NYPD I'm outta here, but he continued on...God I love him.

He was told not to tell Alex, or anyone what he was doing. It was the only way he could escape from the 'purgatory' the department put him in.

This episode is intense. Bobby is so happy to reintegrate the NYPD, i love his face when he gets his badge!
And Alex irritates me a lot in this episode, i'd like to hit her!

Lovely collage as usual! ;o)

she's snarky at the best of times - at worst she's even snarkier!!!

I love him and all, but it was a bit much to say he couldn't break the rules and tell her, as if he were some kind of stickler for the rules. I understood her reaction. But the water carrier comment was uncalled-for. Think of all the times he brought her coffee, as she did him - it's called being friends and partners.

Have to agree with maui.
