  • The Team Rushes to find Vera, while still trying to solve his last case before he went missing.

    What a terrific episode, it had reminded me a lot of Season Six's, " Officer Down," especially when Kate had a flashback to remembering Vera sleeping on the photos which was related to this case,which the scene had appeared in this season's, " Iced,".



    Although the Joe Don was innnocent all along, I felt it both compelling and yet heartbreaking at the same time. How Vera struggled with his own personal problems before putting those aside to realize that all along; Joe Don was telling him the truth. In the end, I liked how Rush, Valens and Miller were each helping the clean up Vera's apartment, which is a reminder that this squad is family.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • This episode is ripped from the headlines. On Monday December 23, 1991, the home of the Willingham family caught fire in Corsicana, Navarro County, Texas. Cameron Todd Willingham was the sole survivor of the blaze that killed his daughters. Willingham was arrested and charged with arson and homicide. Following Willingham's conviction, evidence began to mount in favor of Willingham's innocence. On Tuesday February 17, 2004, under orders from governor Rick Perry, Willingham was executed via lethal injection. This did not stop the Willingham family from seeking exoneration. Faced with the possibility of being responsible for killing an innocent man, Perry fired members of the Texas Science Forensics Commission which was in the process of reviewing the case with leanings toward exoneration. The terminations ordered by Perry suggest a coverup at the highest levels of the Texas government.
