Ty pushed back. (I might've screamed with joy at that bit).
Loved. Loved that after the one-two punch of his accomplishments on that day, Ty was in the perfect headspace to just not budge one goddamn inch when Hooten started in on him. It was a nice contrast to the reveal which was Hooten basically pulling a big fat "Psych! Ya done good, kid" on him, but it was still satisfying to watch. ;)
I absolutely don't need everything spelled out, either; I enjoy it immensely when a show makes me think and draw my own conclusions, in fact it's preferable. However I think the "telling and not showing" issue we've been bringing up over and over again is not at all about the show needing to be more literal, but demonstrating more firmly that it knows the dynamics of its own characters. The issue with Ty/Tina before tonight has been that in what I am sure was intended to be a slow burn has come off as more vague than anything, and in a way that undermined what Jamie & Jen are bringing to the table. What was SO nice about tonight was not the long-overdue tenderness or the showery snogging sexytimes (though that wasn't half bad, was it? ;)) - it was that this particular episode felt assured in where the relationship stands and we could get on with seeing them both as a couple AND as colleagues. The way the two pinged off each other accomplishing that remote surgery was quite nicely handled by all parties. *golf claps of approval*
