I gave this episode an A-. On a case standpoint it was pretty cut and dry. I wasn't suprised at any point. The minute the guy said cop I knew it probably was a security guard uniform. So meh. The reason my grade is so high is because it really is nice to have EVERYONE in an episode. The reason this season is so blah for me is that lack of "team" - and more just filling space. I love Adam as usual. I'm not sure what he was thinking about when smelling the gold but I'm SURE he had a very scientific reason for it! So glad Sid is back and action and it was fun to Hawkes working with Sid. I really like them as a team. Sid is awesome and it's so boring to do an autopsy without him. Having Reed back in this episode was great. He's always been a star for me, performance wise. I think he really did play and young man that learned from a traumatic experience. I really like Mac and Reeds relationship. It's one of the most realistic relationships in CSI NY. Not overdone or anything. I like how they introduced Aubrey(?). The little notes were cute. Everything was like a sweet little romance story. Hopefullly it'll stay that way. It's also nice to see that Aubrey looks atleast close to Macs age. I always thought Peyton looked much younger than Mac.
