I saw the motive from the beginning (and for a change I was right). It's been in too many other tv shows. I still enjoyed watching the twists. I'm a Flack fan so his getting a bigger part was a good thing. I've always liked his annoying big brother relationship with Sam. (I loved when she mentioned his haircut.) But did we really need the mallet of Mac mentioning Sam at the beginning? I'm kind of surprised he knew so much about her problems. I can't see Flack talking about it. It's not only private (and he is very private) it's family private. As for Lindsay's comments/actions in the salon, I'm not really a Lindsay fan, but she sold me in that scene. I not only believed she could shoot him in the head, I believed she would shoot him in the head.
