Unfortunately this whole plot hinged on one of the show's biggest sweep-it-under-the-rug-shortcomings. That being: the whole case gets off the ground on the basis of NO evidence and someone's gut feeling. Despite the fact that no crime lab worth their salt would let that happen. Despite the fact that Mac Taylor NEVER succumbs to intuition alone. Despite the fact that he's crucified people for JUST that in the past. Apparently, Stella's gut doesn't have shit for brains like the rest of us? What. Ever. If you'd like to know what exactly got this case reopened --as in, had the investigation continue after Sid made his call, I urge you to rewatch the scene where Stella was standing in Mac's office talking about how she refused to believe Marina would give up. Basically the premise they're leading with is that "Stella saw it in her eyes". And we all know that shit holds up in court better than DNA. Even Danny and Lindsay-- THE MESSERS!! --were confused as to what the fuck they were doing on a case without evidence. "Gee, Stell we'd love to help but we can't seem to get your woman's intuition to register on the Z-Nose." When they finally do fabricate--err um I mean, FIND some evidence to go on we get the misfortune of seeing that Lindsay (MESSER!) has been teaching Danny (MESSER!) how to explain your findings in the most asinine and unnecessarily tedious ways. Wonderful, now there's two public school science fair performers running around these glass halls. At least, he pulled that crap on HER and I can fantasize that maybe Lindsay got a taste of her own shit-shows, and at heart he was mocking her for it. Then again, this show hasn't been so nuanced in years. Maybe the NY fashion district was trying to move some bolts of unwanted material this week, but I found both the "Foam Fry" and the "Memory Material" pretty far from being based on reality. I'm calling Mythbusters right now about that pillow trick. :wtf: At the end of this crapisode, Stella's right of course! Marina was murdered after all! But wait! The ONLY thing that made Stella think she was murdered in the first place turns out to be wrong! Marina HAD given up looking for her brother! Just before someone else killed her! Well, that's a knee slapper, kids! Case closed, we'll chalk this one up to coincidence! WHAT?! :wtf: The only tolerable moments in this one were listening to Flack try to bring Stella back down to earth-- the planet where people get slightly miffed when they get the same call every day at 8AM for 3 years, and Adam's witty répartie with Aubrey. For shame!
