    Reminiscent of when Danny was chasing a suspect in On the Job and Mac rather inexplicably didn't follow? Who said the writing lacks continuity! :rolleyes:

    Yes. This episode was really good. Probably one of the best episodes this season. I give it an A+. The case was just really great. The girl's eyes = creepy and scary and the ending was just really great!

    This episode was a mixed bag for me.

    The good:

    --Joey Lawrence was awesome as the killer.

    --Mac and Flack squared off and both had good points! Flack wasn't automatically wrong just because he isn't the lead. I liked that, and how it was resolved.

    --Mac screaming at Adam showed him as less than perfect, and I like that.

    --Lindsay was in the episode for half a second. Limited exposure makes her much more tolerable.

    --The ending was a shocker.

    The bad:

    --Was anyone really surprised that Stella was HIV negative? Don't get me wrong, I'm pleased, but at the same time, what was the point of the storyline? Did it really raise HIV/AIDS awareness in any way? I really don't think so.

    --Mac pushing Dobson off that roof with cuffs on his hands is about as likely as Stella testing positive for HIV

    --Danny not reacting to Jesse killing his brother? The Danny of old would have blown a gasket, not given the guy ten more minutes to be with the brother he killed.

    Cock-blocking lesbians is a new low for Flack. He must be taking the Dindsay romance hard. :lol:

    Wait, how do you...???

    You know, they told us about Adam's father being a bully, and then they're giving us scenes that show how Adam reacts to intimidation from other people now. I hope that these little hints of development are a sign that Adam is going to be in the NY lab for a long time. :p

    IIRC, by the time Flack got to the building, Mac and Dobson were outside climbing up the fire escape and then went back inside through an apartment. Flack was too far below to have had any reasonable chance of catching them on the fire esscape, and if he went inside, he'd have no way of knowing what floor they were on.
    The best thing he could do was to corden off the outside of the building so as to contain Dobson in the event that he got away from Mac. Once Flack had enough backup with him, he could trawl through the building, clearing each floor and leaving a cop at each exit/stairwell to catch Dobson if necessary.

    Erm...,being HIV positive doesn't mean being terminally ill,in fact,they had had a great opportunity to show how she can be positive and have a perfect normal life and work,but,as every of us expected,they didn't do it.

    I liked Mac being out of his nerves,that makes him more real,more human,but poor Adam,with his father being a bully the last thing he needed was Mac telling him off.

    Didn't Joey Lawrence have a lovely hair on "Blossom"?What happenned? :lol:

    That makes perfect sense, tactically. If only we in the southern Hemisphere didn't have to wait, oh, I don't know, six to eight months before we can see it. :rolleyes: Sounds like a really good episode.

    I think the episode was concentrating too much on Mac and Stella.
    Stella is HIV negative
    Mac's arrest goes bad
    Mac shouts at Adam
    Mac is mad at Flack
    Mac looks down from the end of the episode
    Gerrard argues with Mac
    I would like to see more of the other characters. Other than that i think it was ok, even though the eye lid thing was kinda creepy.

    Good ep!!
    I'm glad Stella isn't HIV positive.
    I don't for a moment believe Mac pushed that creep off the roof. My guess is the guy jumped because he REALLY didn't want to go back to jail and he knew Mac would be blamed for his death.

    First off my apologies for that horrible grammer must have been in the wee hours when I wrote that! :lol:

    Oh I agree with you there. Hopefully NYPD Interal Affairs will be less sadistic then MDPD Interal Affairs.

    Definatly glad Stella is going to be okay, can't wait to find out about her past...

    Wasn't that chick flirting with Stella? Or was I inferring? It looked like it to me, and it cracked me up!

    Was Mac around when Adam mentioned that? I don't think he was, but it would make him look like an even bigger jerk if he was. Adam was clearly taken aback, but I thought he held his own pretty well--he explained/defended what he did! And Stella stuck up for him, too.

    No, you were right. I'm just trying to figure out which, er, something-that-starts-with-a-C is getting blocked. :lol: Unless, in this situation, the, er, C, is actually doing the blocking instead. :lol:

    No, it was just Stella and Danny there when Adam mentioned his father being a bully. But then, even if Mac had been there, he'd probably still have yelled at Adam in this past episode--when Mac is mad, he doesn't really think about the effect that his anger is going to have on the people around him.

    I definitely think Adam defended himself, but he wasn't very effective against Mac, not when he's that nervous about it. *pet pet* Stella is better able to stand up against Mac in those types of situations, but it was obvious that Mac wasn't hearing anything--he wanted to get his point across and that was it. *le sigh*

    Even though Mac was very rude to Adam, he really had his reasons and Stella should understand him.

    It still doesn't give him the right to yell at his subordinates. Mac was totally in the wrong. He was pissed at Gerrard (?) and took it out on Adam.
