  • Where is a series going when you start recycling plots?

    This episode is basically a rehash of the season 1 episode "Glued" -- a different setting but the same suspects. With episodes like this, it always boils down to the parents and the ever-jealous older sibling. I hoped they wouldn't do the cliche but I was disappointed. At least they avoided the over-used plot device where one of the parents confesses because s/he thinks their own child did it. They even re-used the snow symbolism in the end! And why is the mother always the killer? Totally predictable, totally disappointing. :(moreless
  • When it's discovered that a baby reported to have died from SIDS had wet hair and water in her lungs, the team believes she was drowned.

    Iris Felice was a 6 month baby with her whole life ahead of her. With her parents busy at work all of the time they unknowingly leave her and her older brother in the care of less than professional nannies. The investigation quickly goes from the nannies to the family.



    I thought this episode was pretty boring. It was sad to see the little girl die, especially when the parents begin to blame themselves after the baby is taken out of their home. But the investigation was just so boring. It was pretty obvious who killed the baby from the very beginning. Although it wasn't obvious how she was killed.



    While the story was very predictable, the actors did a great job in this one. It's worthy of one watch.moreless
  • Lily and the team re-opens a 1982 case involving a 6 month old girl, who died of SIDS. I really enjoyed this episode.

    In this episode as Lily and the team re-open the 1982 death of a six month old girl, who died of circumstances of SIDS. I did not understand why the parents were fighting after Iris' death. Molly suspects that her husband is having an affair. Brie, Iris' former nightime baby-sitter discovered the parents' dirty little secret. Marta caught Brie doping the children's drink with whiskey. Molly was suffering from post-pardum depression. She decided to put Iris in the cold snow, where Iris died. Molly was arrested for Iris' murder. This case resembles the Waneta Hoyt case. Waneta Hoyt is the mother with a tragic history: five of her six children died, supposedly of Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS, or "crib death"). In 1995, Hoyt confessed to and was convicted of murdering her children. Kathryn Morris did a public service announcement on post-pardum depression, which is part of the CBS Cares campaign.moreless
  • The team reopens a SIDS case from 1982.....

    9.7
    This episode chilled me to the bone. I have a 6 month old so it was an emotional experience from beginning to end for me. The show was great as usual. The flashbacks with that washed out 80's feeling was pretty cool. The music is one of the reasons I watch the show, they have a way of really bringing you back to that time. Even though I was only 2 in '82 it made me feel like I remember that time. I really don't remember ever being so emotional during a television show. From the beginning with the shot of the funeral and the itty bitty coffin, it really pulls at your heart strings. The end was even worse. How a woman can do that to her child I will never understand. It really makes you worry about babies all over the world living with parents going through these things. THey are so defenseless and they look to you for everything. They trust you completely. When she laid in the snow with little Iris, out came the water works. If this is what they were trying to achieve with this episode then I give them an A++++++. Hopefully the PSA at the end will help a few suffering mothers out there.moreless
  • Another episode hits close to home!

    When a baby dies due to SIDS Sudden Infant Death Syndrome back in 1982, all fingers points to the brother and the parents of the baby. And that on the personal front, Lily sees her boyfriend in the hospital. The mother of that infant had post partum disorder and it wasn't well-known at the time like it is now. Series star Kathryn Morris in the end of the show put a PSA for people that suffer from post partum disorder. Very smart thing to do that!moreless
