Alexandra Eames - Vita

Alex’s Vita
click to enlarge

A couple of months ago my lovely CIMusings group and I collected personal stuff about Bobby and his family and also about Alex and made a comparing timeline. It was very helpful that I have my two big ‘Who are..?’ lists so I could add a few things. Last week I looked a little closer Alex’s column and added even more details.
 
But when you go through all the happenings of Alex’s life you see that TPTB failed. Okay, I heard in an interview of Kathryn that she and the authors knew from the beginning that Alex Eames is a widow. The CI fans first found out in 6 x 08 The War at Home. We know that René Balcer had that CI bible about all the characters and their background.

But as they said in 6 x 06 Masquerade that Alex was at the Police Academy in 1993 they made a big mistake and even more complicated for themselves. After the academy rookies have to be at least two years (in some departments five) a police patrol officers before testing for the Detective position. So Alex could switch to Vice first in 1995. Here is a big problem, when she was five years in Vice including two in Chelsea (6 x 15 Brother’s Keepers) how she could be 1999 in MCS (8 x 11 Lady’s Man)? But okay, in 1 x 13 The Insider Alex was just three years in Vice.

We also get trouble when thinking about Bobby and 4 x 01 Semi-Detached. The episode played between 6th and 14th May 2004. Do you remember that sweet academy picture what was taken of him…he said it was 12 years ago in a newspaper. So Bobby had been on the Police Academy in 1992. But he is the junior in Unit 229. So he must have finished his police training after Alex.

They shoot themselves in the foot as they made that Academy statement in Masquerade. Everything is too squeezed and it didn’t fit.

The other problem is what did Alex after College? If you assume that between Alex and Bobby is the same age difference than between Kathryn and Vincent (I colored that red!) there is a hole of four years, if Alex really did her Master and not only her Bachelor. What did she do in that time? We never heard her speaking another language…so no au pair year and if she had a PhD somewhere, they had mentioned it sometimes.

But when you make Alex even younger…

…but more than ten years younger than Bobby, no. And also the hair dry statement of Slither fit well with born in 1967.

So who cared about Alex’s vita? Nobody when you behold her Lieutenant rank in 9 x 02 Loyalty. When did she become a Sergeant?

I care and I’ll add more detail. I have to watch again the rest of season 5 and season 6 more closely and I would love to get entries of you (also when I did mistakes). When someone can organize a copy of Balcer’s CI bible, I would be thankful all the rest of my life for a peek.
