    Mac is found but a few things are un-clear. The hunt for Mac's kidnapper is on.

    By joshta101, Feb 08, 2009

    Veritas is the perfect answer to begin a season. Leave the main charcter kidnapped and the rest of the team on a frantic search for him. Now, though, they've found Mac - in New Jersey. As Mac struggles to regain his memory, Stella starts a chase on his kidnapper. The episode is well-written, and all the charcters are real - Gary Sinse does an aftermath of a concussion brilliantly. Veritas is one of my CSI: NY top episodes along with Snow Day and Can You Hear Me Now. But the best bit of Veritas? The end when they finally capture Mac's kidnapper and Mac does his kidnapper's list of crimes. So that's Veritas in about 120 words. Thanks for reading!moreless

    Better than the season finale/first part!

    By super_friend21, Jan 12, 2009

    Good conclusion to a slightly boring finale. Mac is finally found but is unclear on a few things because of a concussion. I just liked the way the whole thing played out even introducing us to Detective Flack's sister Samantha who has an unexpected connection to the case was great. "Joe" really is wicked, I mean I thought after he pushed Stella off the railing he was going to save her - the one shread of decency I thought he had but he just eanted the bag of money! Stella was very brave though and Adam was funny as usual...moreless

    A great start to the season!

    By vicky24c, Jan 02, 2009

    We open with the team searching for Mac. We then see Mac in the water and the car sinking next to him. We see Mac swimming to shore and flagging down a car. He soon informs the team of where he is and they turn up. We then see the car being pulled out of the water and a body is in it, but it's to the kidnapper, but another wanted man who was also involved in the robbery. The team believe that Joe is still in Manhattan searching for his half of the money from the robbery. We learn that the car the team are looking for is registered to Flack's sister. They find the car with a dead girl in the boot of the car. We learn that she was involved in the bank robbery. The team find Joe's secret hiding place with all of his fake ID's and passports. The team learn that Joe's real name is Ethan Scott. They believe that the money never left the bank and that Ethan is going back to get it. They catch him in the act and Stella chases after him. As Stella nearly dies, she manages to save herself and still keeps on chasing after Ethan. They get his wife to help them capture him and so they capture him at the train station.moreless

    Mac is back!

    By JPPT1974, Sep 28, 2008

    One thing that you shouldn't do is get on the bad side of Mac. As he is one bad you know what. And I mean it in a good kind of way. When we see him, trying to stay alive. Like one reviewer said that it was neat to seeing Stella kick some you know what. Because it is rare that she does that. Alos we see Flack's sister. She seems to be likable and that hopefully she will do more episodes of the show. Wonder what their relationship will be like and how it will be develop. Only time can and will tell. The conman playing games really played the team up.moreless

    The conclusion to last year's season finale, overall it was good, and cleverly written!! I think season 5 of CSI: NY will be a great season, since season 4 they really upped their game.

    By KkMc7080, Sep 27, 2008

    What a great way to conclude this 2 part episode, it left the mystery there, and kept you guessing on what's going to happen next. To me this episode didn't disappoint at all. So far all the CBS crime series have had great season premieres and this one was no different. It obviously wasn't one that rushed through the episode to fill us in, we learned Joe/Ethan Scott was a con artist and was playing the CSI team all along, good thing they realized that this guy was playing games. I wasn't really expecting the angle they used for the season premiere, but it was great!! The writers knew what they were doing and mad props to them all!!moreless

    Mac is back and he is pissed.

    By mattsafreak, Sep 26, 2008

    This season opener did not fail to deliver. I must confess I haven't watched CSI NY since it started. I was a diehard CSI and CSI Miami fan. I have to say that CSI NY surpassed Miami in terms of this seasons opener. It was nice to meet Flacks sister, and I hope we see more of her and more of the relationship they have. I was a bit disappointed that I didnt see more of Messer and Monroe, but hopefully we will soon. It was good to see Stella kick a little a$$ but I do agree she should have used her gun. I was most impressed with Adam, his character has come a long way and I hope his character continues to develop. I would also like to see more of Hawkes because I love his character. All in all this was a very solid season opener.moreless

    good but not the best it could have been

    By gwenpiper24, Sep 26, 2008

    not the best premiere but a good episode anyway.

    I LOVE ADAM!!!!!!! he was sooooooooooo cute!!! i love how scared he was of Mac and yet managed to stand on his ground saying he'd do the same thing over if he had to. that shows how good a friend he is, he's loyal.

    love big brother Flack, hope we're gonna see more of that. so protective and yet a bit out of line too.

    not enough Lindsay and her little demonstration wasn't as good as others in the past. yes it was cute that Mac 'sensed' it was coming but it didn't impress me as much as others had.

    i'm so happy AJ and Robert are in the credits but i did wonder too why they were before Hill, i guess that Eddie's always the last one because he's a cop not a CSI and it is CSI: NY. but i thought it's a bit unfair to have Hill after AJ and Robert.

    what else...what else? oh yes i liked that Stella pushed herself up on her own and saved herself, no need for a knight in shining armor. Danny wasn't memorable in this episode, we didn't see much of him either, but that didn't bother me that much. i guess i'm still a little bit mad at him.

    so overall i liked the episode, mostly because i hadn't had my hopes up so i was pleasantly surprised with some things nad not expecting too much meant i wasn't too disappointed.moreless

    The fifth season begins where the fourth season left off. Mac calls the team to Jersey City (Where he was left for dead by the robber who took him hostage) where the body of the robber's accomplise was found. More bodies soon turn up in this case.

    By meathead704, Sep 26, 2008

    One thing I like about this episode happened in the very beginning. The opening scene is of Mac escaping his watery grave. It was painfully obvious that he would survive and I am glad that the producers of this episode told us that right away instead of trying some phony suspense ploy. The scenes with Flak's not too bright sister were unnecessary. They are obviously meant to start a story arc for this season but I don't like it already. There were also too many close up shots of Gary Sinise's face. Despite this I enjoyed this episode very much.moreless

    The train station where Joe's Wife & Daughter waiting…

    Is that Union Station in LA California…

    By marky30mark, Sep 26, 2008

    The train station where Joe's Wife & Daughter waiting…

    Is that Union Station in LA California…

    Poor scene, If you knew this places, you will know, that this train station is not in New York...

    And where Joe came out on tunnel of the Stattion, i'm very sure that's Union Station in LA California...

    I just wish they can make it good, and not very poor for the Televiewer to notice...

    Even on the start of the show, i don't know how Joe push that SUV on the middle of the water...

    If you ever push a SUV you need at least two person, at it will only stay on the side of the water front...moreless
