Why would Flashpoint
be a guilty pleasure? I think it's a very smart, worthwhile show, refreshingly wholesome in the way its characters generally manage to find better alternatives to lethal force and are genuinely affected by it when they have to use lethal force.
And yes, it's possible Katic
was wearing a wig before, but I'm thinking more in-universe. There's no reason why Beckett
would've worn a wig on a weekly basis for a year, so if there's an episode showing her with hair that long, I'd assume it's meant to be a wig. (Unless she has magic length-changing hair like Janeway had in "Parturition" and the adjacent episodes.)
