Wow, where do I even begin with this ep? I'll start with the case. It was interesting to start, but towards the end it felt a little cliche with the whole race-to-save-the-victim storyline. Though it was a nice twist that the victim had been killed. I know that sounds morbid but they usually live. Okay, now to the Calleigh/Eric. I'm not fan of the pairing, so I found the small storyline somewhat boring and irrelevant to the episode. Ron Saris is amazing. He was really funny in this ep. I can't remember exactly what one of his lines was, but it cracked me up. I really liked the Tara storyline. I like that Ryan really went about things the right way for once. I'm a little sad to see Tara go, but she deserved it. Okay, let's talk about what, to me, was the most attention grabbing storyline of the episode--Horatio/Kyle/Julia. First off, I loved the scene when Kyle came to see Horatio. Kyle is clearly upset and stressed out by his mother. I loved how Horatio knew the moment Kyle showed up that something was wrong. Can I give a shout out to Evan Ellingson? That kid is doing a fantastic job. I did have one problem with the scene. Kyle makes it known that his mother's constant presence in his life is stressing him out. I believe he even begins to say "I can't handle this." Horatio really ought to be concerned. But instead he chides Kyle saying "she's been through a lot lately, hasn't she?" What about Kyle? Hasn't he been through a lot? The morgue scene was intense. Let me say this: Kyle is going to have SO many issues in a couple of years (if he's not going crazy already.) He almost watched his mother commit suicide. Seriously. If I were him, I would have been bawling. I don't get what happened with Horatio and the judge at the end. I understand that Horatio was trying to get Julia sent to an institution rather than jail, but his word choice was strange. He admits he was wrong about the medication. Then he goes on to say that it was his fault that Julia has lost it, which implies that taking Kyle away is what caused Julia to become unstable. Is Horatio seriously saying that he shoudn't have taken Kyle away? It seems to me like H is a lot more concerned with Julia's well being than he is with his son's well being. Even on her medication Julia is a bad mother to Kyle, and I would think that Horatio would recognize that. Overall I enjoyed the episode, though there were definitely some sketchy parts. The promo...eh...doesn't really look like something I'm going to enjoy that much. But I'll take that to the spoiler thread. EDIT: I just remembered. Did anyone else think that it was totally unprofessional of Horatio to mention that Julia had stopped taking her medication to Natalia? I get that TPTB were trying to put a nice moment between H and Nat in there, but Julia's business is not Natalia's business. That crossed a line, IMO.
