I apologize for starting a new thread just for this thought, but I couldn't find an existing thread that I could attach this to. I'm baffled by this Natalia shooting storyline. Today, she was moaning to Brot that it was a "by the book" shooting and she wants to be back out on the street. What?? She walks into a situation about which she knows absolutely nothing, finds herself behind a man with a gun and fires at him without assessing the situation or without warning him to put down the gun. Shoot first and ask questions later? That's what they taught her at the Police Academy? There's her father, the Chief of Police, talking to the man with the gun (Aidan, but she didn't even have time to know that), and big shot Natalia, first day on the street, comes to the rescue by trying to take out the man with the gun??? She didn't think Jesse could handle it? What a cowboy move. And what's worse, nobody, from Jesse on down, reprimanded her for her rashness. I'm really put off by Natalia's self-righteous arrogance. She thinks she knows better than anyone else, no matter what the situation. Tone her down a little, Pratt, if you want us to like her at all.
