Welcome Smasha! It's great to have you! Spoiler codes aren't specifically required as was said above, this thread is clearly marked with a spoiler warning but some choose to use it as a courtesy until every time zone has seen it. If this were a regular unmarked thread, then I would advise using the spoiler code for the next couple of hours. I thought this episode was way better than last week, although I called the ending. It wasn't a huge surprise that Reggie was the one behind at least one of the killings. Such a shame too, that he had to off someone to prove who he thought the killer was and that person was chosen just because she had a hard/undesirable lifestyle? :wtf: It had that cliché "no one was going to miss her" vibe about it which made me rather unsympathetic to Reggie. Maybe if he's going to do that, he should make sure he has the right killer in line to be caught. Anyway, though I do understand why he did it, it's not something I'm about to jump to the pump to condone in any fashion. Maybe Horatio should take note? Because that seems to be the next step for him if he's going to saunter down this dark dark path after killing Riaz (in self defense, admitedly), the gang member with the machete and rearranging the rapist's face. Who's to say Horatio won't take his crime fighting nature to the extreme like Reggie at some point? Maybe he won't cross that line completely or maybe he will but the similarities/differences between Reggie and Horatio stuck out in my mind during the episode. And showing the two back to back in the interrogation room solidified it for me. Ryan provided some really great comic relief, even if it was only for a couple of seconds. I really wish they would add some more of it in because it's golden and Jon does it so well. There's so much potential for great banter. It's going on my Christmas Wish List. I didn't think we'd see so much of Eric's motel room. The room definitely tells a lot about him, especially with the prescription drugs on the table. Agreed with what some said above, it looks like he's carrying out doctor's orders and taking something for his condition. Frank finally had more to say this episode than 'I'll call patrol' or some sarcastic remark to push in comic relief. (which is great but there's a character under there, I know it ) He kind of reminds how closely-knit the department is and everyone's almost like family instead of simply being co-workers. Would have been a perfect episode to slip in Stetler but there was a lot going on already. It bummed me out that the case didn't connect to one year before season 1, but instead a case from last year. :scream: I hate when they change things like that because it would have been cool. Oh well. It was a great episode to me anyway.
