Crisis of Conscience (#13.16), 28 May 2015
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Well, one can see now why Ray likes Neela. He also sees her as a self righteous b**ch that she is but he actually sees it as a good thing. I would disagree, I much more agree with Dr. Dubenko.

This is also why Tony would not end up with her, he is the one who was fighting to lie a bit to give sons of a woman her insurance money. While the ending gives one a bit of a creeps I wish it wasn't made like this.. Nobody would tell it like that.. It is basically a confession.

Dustin and Jane together as a couple are a perfect entertainment. I sure want more from them.

And we had some interesting guest stars today. There is Andy Dick. And there is Rico Rodriguez for a few minutes before his big part in Modern Family.
