Still catching up! An interesting take, I hadn't thought that Kate could possibly have had the antidote. Adds a whole new layer of guilt and darkness to this post ep story.
A nice touch acknowledging the aftermath of the encounter with Parker (things like that aren't acknowledged enough on the show IMO) plus McCord and the eyeliner.

And after the last episode, McCord is the crush that just broke Beckett's heart. I honestly figured it would be at least another episode or two before Kate quit or made a call that her bosses couldn't accept politically, but three episodes in works...due have to wonder about Gates giving Kate her job back.
Beautiful scene, beautiful imagery...beautiful feelings! You are the best at what you do, chezchuckles :D

"The smile is back, dipped in grief. . . " You've done it again. You found a poetic yet descriptive way to say something simple. Then all those details that follow: the blown veins, the non-responsive remark, and most importantly, the horror of, " she had the shot but didn't know how to use it." Loved the sweet exchange between Kate and Martha about coffee was perfect, too.

Thanks for that. I needed to see Kate grieving. Well done.

Just beautiful. Elegantly done.

McCord is really likeable :) The never-ending handshake amuses me to no end - still
But yeah - the shot in her dream is surely not the antidote. It's the whole DC thing. And yeah, she doesn't know what she's doing - especially with there being a gray zone, which, let's be honest, Kate can't handle and accept.
Liked this one :)

I can't log innnnnn. Blah.
BUT THIS IS SO GOOD.
The whole bit about having the shot and not being able use it, guh, and they way she's kind of punishing herself with the stool, with not being allowed to cry. And thiiissssss
"she crawled up after him feeling like ice water lived under her skin. Grief rushing in to swallow her. A live thing with eating mouths, chewing her inside out."
Great, visceral description. Love.
