CHASE “Narco, Part 1” Review

Chase (NBC) Nico, Part 1

CHASE “Narco, Part 1” Season 1 Episode 12 – This episode featured one of the more unusual captures I’ve seen on this show. First of all, it started out with the team making an arrest, which is unusual enough given that they usually start the show with some sort of crime and escape. After that, things go back to normal until the end when their fugitive willingly gives herself up in order to save her son and all hell breaks loose.

I can’t say that I was too surprised by the ending, not after they made it so obvious that Annie was going to be a target. Is it just me or does she have the worst luck ever? The poor girl is always getting blown up or shot and now she’s been kidnapped. I’m looking forward to what affect it will have on the rest of the team though, to have to figure out how to rescue her.

I really enjoyed the team bonding in this episode. Everyone hanging out at the barbecue in the beginning was awesome. I also really enjoyed getting some background on Marco and finding out more about him.

My favorite bits…

The look that little girl gave Jimmy through the window. Classic.

Being equally grossed out and admiring of the hitman firing his gun through the peep-hole. Graphic yes, but it sure was smart.

Natalie showing Annie the ring. I kinda dig that she’s gonna propose to him instead of the other way around.

Wondering what kind of power this Isabella woman has, to get a police officer’s personal phone number so that she could threaten him and get him off her tail.

The cop admitting that he loved his job but he loved his family more.

The mom telling her son that he was spoiled.. um, who exactly was responsible for that, lady?

Thinking this thought as soon as I saw the plane taxiing down the runway – “Man, I really, really hoping that Annie wasn’t going to end up jumping on another plane.”

Annie granting the kid’s wish and arresting him.

Natalie telling Jimmy that she didn’t want him worrying so much about her that he didn’t keep himself safe. Yep, I’m liking this chick more and more.

Giggling when Marco told Jimmy “you should marry that girl.” Ha!

Knowing that Isabella was beyond cold when she shot a pregnant woman.

Finding out that Marco’s last partner was not only on the take but that Marco had been forced to kill him. Whoa.

Annie noticing that Luke’s knife looked just like Jimmy’s. Aw, ain’t that sweet?

Totally believing Jimmy when he threatened to throw O’Neill out the window.

Getting a kick out of Annie turning the tables on Isabella with a threatening call.

Total shock when the shooters came out. I didn’t care that they got Isabella but the kid getting caught in the crossfire was awful.

Jimmy waking up Natalie and slipping a ring on her finger.

Totally expecting a car to hit Annie since she was sitting there for so long.
