Re: Can't we all just get along. According to the reviewer on this site, you're correct. Ok, that answers my question too. Yelina's trip out of town with Stetler was a good opportunity to introduce RJ and his growing pains and to highlight that RJ and H are actually relatively close. Close to the point that RJ does really miss Horatio's visits to the house. I'm glad the writers had RJ and Horatio talk aboout the reasons H doesn't come over much...namely, Stetler. This leads us to RJ sort of telling his uncle he doesn't care at all for Stetler <like that was any surprise! The boy's a Caine!>. I also thought that RJ's position of not telling on his "friends" to save himself, despite the seriousness of the situation, was also added insight into RJ's character. Loyalty to friends, whether they deserve it or not, means something to him. More Caine characteristics peeking through. Yelina being out of town with Stetler, was the method used by the writers as an obvious and believable plot device for Yelina not to be around when RJ got into trouble. So road trip is a good one. One presumes unless we are told specifically otherwise, that after she asked H to look for RJ, she and Stetler were on their way home. I'm pretty sure instantaneous teleportation devices are still limited to the Trek world, so Yelina not being immediately there to look for her son is not a logical, plausible or reasonable argument to smote the character for being a "bad mother". Think plot device. Besides, from the pics it seems that H had the same suit on for the entire episode. I use his change of suits over the episode to gauge time compression for the storylines.
