Leo: “I don’t sleep anymore because I lay awake at night counting all the different ways they could kill me. I’ve arrived at sixteen, sixteen different ways.”
“Blame it on Leo” is the July 28 episode of “Zoo.” Warning: this article does contain spoilers. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from the episode. “Zoo” airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. CT on CBS.
We split up the teams again, and this time, Agent Ben Shaffer got to tag along. Mitch and Abe always, always, always need to be paired together. Mitch’s sarcastic nature and the ray of sunshine that is Abe just work well together. They balance each other out and provide entertainment. Who is your favorite pairing?
Jackson and Jamie briefed Ben on the mission, but we never really got to see Ben’s impression of their case. He helped them get to Leo and did seem interested in the Reiden Global conspiracy. Ben’s actions suggest that he doesn’t think Jackson and Jamie are crazy, but he never said anything one way or the other. Do you think Ben is on board?
Leo was the best part of this episode. Anyone else curious about what he came up with for the 16 ways Reiden could kill him? In addition to being adorable and amusing, he was helpful and flirted with Jamie.
It’s great that Jamie was right about Reiden. So far, we’ve seen how the newspaper reacted to her focus on Reiden, and we’ve had Mitch being Mitch and casting some doubt and negativity on Jamie’s theory, but now Leo verified Jamie’s suspicions.
This proves that Jamie isn’t just someone on a revenge mission á la Emily Thorne. Jamie was right to suspect Reiden, and she stuck to her gut despite all the obstacles that were thrown in her way. Basically, Jamie’s awesome.
Who names their kid Clementine? The nickname Clem doesn’t really help either. The only good thing about their whole storyline was the twist at the end. Clem’s absent father is none other than Mitch! Other than that, our time with Clem was extremely dull. Any theories on why Mitch hasn’t been in contact with his daughter?
Hopefully this means that Mitch will be reunited with his family at some point. It would be a shame to give us a glimpse of Mitch’s family and then never have them cross paths. Plus, Henry is on Reiden medication, so maybe that will prompt Mitch to pay his daughter and ex-wife a visit.
We also learned something about Chloe – she’s never been in the field. Aside from doubting her ability to use a gun whenever the situation calls for it, this doesn’t really affect Chloe’s contribution to the team.
Chloe’s credentials are a way in the door. She has contacts that are useful. The fact that she hasn’t been in the field doesn’t lessen her usefulness. It’s not like she’s on a team comprised of the best field agents from around the world or anything. Did your opinion of Chloe change at all?
