Much, much better than last week's episode. There were some holes here and there, but overall it wasn't too bad. I liked the team interaction/dynamic- it was a fun episode filled with some funny moments between them. Screen time was fairly balanced. I'm not a big Natalia fan, but I found I actually enjoyed her scenes with Ryan. Disappointed her prospective date turned out to be a baddie, because it seems like everyone in the crime lab is forever alone. They could all use some action for once. I liked that there was slightly less Horatio- he's the star of the show, he's been front-and-center for 10 years, I think it's great that he can be a little more in the background once in a while. I was also pleased that even though there was a dangerous situation with the explosion, it didn't turn into a dramatic crisis- both Calleigh and Eric were relatively unharmed, and the incident didn't cut too much into the investigation- it tied in with it, and wasn't just for the sake of putting some action in. Also enjoyed how both Calleigh and Horatio were helping Eric out of the fire. And most importantly, there was science! I was so, SO happy to see them in the lab trying to figure out what made the hat float, or what the scorched piece of paper was. This element has been missing for too long. I hope future episodes continue this pattern. On the downside, the plot wasn't written too well. The guest characters were fairly two-dimensional (this is not an insult to their acting- they were all good and fine at that- it's that the writers didn't go into enough depth). I'm still kind of confused about why the daughter killed the gigolo. If she was in love with him, wouldn't it make more sense to get rid of the female clients so they weren't in the way? Of course, that probably wouldn't do much, since he could just get other clients, but at least it would make some sense. I also think it would've been more realistic if she hadn't thought of the plan to kill him right away- she may be smart, but anger can cloud judgement and critical thinking, so it would've made more sense if she went back later to put a hole in the pipeline instead of doing it 30 seconds after talking to him.
