Overall, I loved the episode. I always knew she could do it as an actor, but I must say it was really nice to see Calleigh's character show some emotional depth. The scene with Alex was perfectly done, in my opinion. More would have been out of character, but robot Calleigh would have been inappropriate too given her history, not just romantically, with Eric. As for the storyline, they left so much in the present time unexplained. At the end of the show, I was thinking, "Did she shoot him afterall or did the bullet shift, like was mentioned in the spoilers????" I realize we may get fed more information over the next couple of episodes, but I feel like I'm missing some big pieces to the story and it's hard for me to reconcile that with the ending with the whole team at the bedside. There were some big conversations left out if that was Cal's bullet. As for the flashback sequence, I thought it was generally well-done and entertaining. I too had a problem with Eric being a tow-truck driver. I guess technically he may have gone from tow truck driver to the acadamy to underwater recovery to CSI, but that seems like a lot of time passing. Maybe not though. How long is officer training? Furthermore, though, do you think he had a college education and was working as a tow truck driver??? Our Eric is educated beyond what police acadamy would explain. Anyhow, it was a little inconsistent to me, but I'm going to disregard the flashback sequence and just leave it as an amusing insert into the canon. As for Jesse, so far I didn't find his character particularly annoying. I'm glad they made his character seem like a bit of a tortured soul. I would have been pissed if he was too "in your face". That said, I'm not too keen on the whipping the shirt off scene in the upcoming episodes, so I'm playing it by ear with this character... Overall, I thought it was an entertaining episode. Not my favorite, but not the worst either.
