 [The Original Unofficial NASH BRIDGES]

* "HEIST"
All The Boys Are Back
April 2, 2000

by

All the Boys are back in force this week. Evan is back on the squad, and everybody's doing good (except for Nash). It's the post-Evan effect of being Born Again. Harvey finds a kid a foster home and Joe reforms a nasty restaurant critic. The girl is out of the squad - it's an all boy's club for the time being. Caitlin is back to her original position as an outsider from when she was first introduced into the SIU. She is once again auditing the SIU, this time not as Internal Affairs, but as an administrative bean counter.

When everybody is going in one direction (being good), the head honcho is going the other way. Nash solves the case (the case being another throw-away heist caper), but the real interest is Chase (introduced in "Liar's Poker" Episode #91), the semi-bad girl who's got the hots for Nash. There's all sorts of good lines for the older man to say to the young girl like: "Nothing's going to happen... Now eat your peas like a good little girl." But something does happen, and Nash does take the little girl. Besides Caitlin, this is the only other woman Nash has seduced in quite a while. Finally the fuddy-duddy Nash gives in to an encounter with all those Bad Girls that have been trying to seduce him. This one is not so bad - she doesn't kill people, she's only like a kind of secretary to Bad Guys, a "facilitator." But she like to eat in bed and get crumbs in the bed (to which a fastidious Nash points out), and oh yes, she smokes! Ohh, so politically incorrect, and even Nash smokes cigars undercover as Terrence Gault. Oh my, oh my my...

There's several interesting counter moves defending the Don Johnson franchise in "Heist." The shot at restaurant critics to be kind (new restaurant owner Don is trying to make a go of his Ana Mandara restaurant) is obvious, the other is the shot at the tabloids, currently burning up with nasty stories about Don's sexual orientation. As Don/Nash says at the end of the episode "It's just a snake, like a tabloid reporter, for goodness sakes."
