Success! Glad I made the effort to track this down. I thought is was a much better episode than last week, and not just because of Commando Ty ;)

I though the individual plot lines were much better resolved which helped a lot. Some of the camera tricks made me wince a little, particularly the slo mo, but I can let that pass. HH still comes across as an egotistical bully so it was good to see him called out on that.

Tina and Ty's relationship is still a bit perplexing, though I thought it worked better this week as it was presented in a sort of matter of fact kind of way. I could almost start to believe that there's some sort of real relationship there. Was it just me, or was that a rather troubled / ambiguous look Ty gave Tina at the end though? Intriguing...

The shower scene was nicely done, though the whole time I was hoping it'd pan a bit lower. Just a smidge. But if that were the case, Jamie's tweet about his kids watching might've wound up quite different.

Re: HH as a bully - I'm starting to see him as a tough-love sort of parent to the doctors, of an extreme variety. He goes out of his way to take their egos down a notch as he grills them, which is infuriating at the time, but looking back at those moments you can see he's has a point that they can reflect on once they calm down afterwards, and keep in mind the next time they walk into the operating room. It doesn't excuse him - I think he goes too far at times - but I can understand where he's coming from, having been on the receiving end of such behavior in the past.

As for Ty/Tina and the look at the end, I was reading it as a moment when a man realizes there's a side to woman he's not seen before as she's holding a baby. Kinda cliche, but maybe it'll build to something later? I've not read the book, so we'll see.

Re: your Hooten comments, I agree. He does still push the envelope too far to the point where you want to throttle him. (Yoink that bow tie a little too hard... WHOOPS. ;) ) And it's a credit to Fred being the legend that he is that he isn't so infuriating I want to throw things at the TV! But he is absolutely a tough-love dad. (I still say Gato is the mom, too. Bwah.)

Not just you! We've had two episodes in which people have told Tina that, essentially, he just wasn't as in to her and was never going to be. And while I know a desire to hold an adorable baby does not equal wanting to have one, she did seem happy and comfortable holding the baby. And Ty seeing her as a mom (and she'd likely would have to start thinking of starting a family soon) made him contemplate they may not be envisioning the same future and will have to have a serious discussion at some point.
