  • Very good and unpredictable episode! Dfeinitely one of my favourites!

    This episode definitely has to go down as one of my favuorite epiosdes of Body of Proof. Th e storyline was highly intriguing and very interesting to follow, and the outcome of it at the end was definitely unpredictable and unexpecetd.

    Some very interewsting things throughout th e episode, and the storyline between Megan and Lacey continues to develop, so there were loads of different, yet equally interesting aspects to this episode, and I hope that the hgih standard of this episode is maintained into the future!

    Keep it up, Body of Proof!Q A truly amazing episode!!! :)

  • A great episode that was ruined by the scheduling nightmare that is ABC.

    A very intriguing start to a new Body of Proof with another unpredictable but exciting plot line that was well thought out. At least on the part of the writers.

    ABC takes a stumble in Episode 1x07 because it is obvious they don't watch their own shows. At least not in great detail.

    From the moment Megan utters to Lacey 'the last time we saw each other you thought I was pushing to hard' alarms bells went off and I realized ABC had done a doozy. Megan and Lacey supposedly healed their relationship in Episode 1x04 BUT now they are back to their old issue of Lacey not wanting her Mum too close. To add to this Lacey also doesn't remember meeting Megan's partner whom she has an interview with in Episode 1x04.

    With these two inconsistencies plaguing me I found it hard to enjoy what was a great episode. ABC clearly changed the order of programming in order to grab viewers early with the more interesting cases (as lets face it an episode about heads in a freezer is far more interesting then some guy stabbed to death). However what has happened in is that the network has thrown the season arc out of wack and if this continues it could hurt the show in the long run.

    Viewers aren't idiots and I will not be the only person who notices this step back in time. I just hope that the DVD release is in order of shooting and not in the order of air date. The only thing that was gained by putting this episode here was that it gave context to Megan's boss being so happy in the previous episode. I suspect a relationship between her and Megan's ex (which is why its all so hush hush in Episode 1x06) but only time will tell.

    All I can say is well done writers for another great week but shame on ABC for thinking they can fool their audience.moreless
