  • The fifth season (shortened by the Writers Guild strike) ends with the case of a woman who's eight month-old son was killed in an apartment fire in 2005. Arrested for disorderly conduct, she tells Lilly she saw her son alive in a park.

    As much as I liked this episode, I did not like the presence of cliches and tired plot devices. When Lilly first talks to the woman, she does not believe her (and neither does the rest of the team) because she is a former drug addict. I knew immediately that the woman's claims were legitimate and that her son was alive. Eventually everybody comes to the realization they were wrong and start to feel real sympathy for the woman. Like we haven't seen that before. While the episode does make up for this and is enjoyable, it's not that great.
