  • John Lennon calms the soul.

    8.0
    I was curious to see how they would work John Lennon's music into the episode and it was actually really believable. I found the case of a mental patient finding a calm in the music was creative. The murdered shrink had lots of twists and kept me guessing in regards to which suspect was the murderer. I like the small glimpses that we saw through Pete's eyes. It gave you a small understanding of how a schizophrenic sees thing. I loved how Lil kept digging to understand and solve what happened. I was interested to see the exploration of the relationship between Bell and Lil.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • As Lilly and partner interview a possible suspect about 1/2 through the episode, he is wrapping up what appears to be an AA meeting. They're in a meeting space that looks a bit more like a funeral home parlor than an AA meeting room. There is a framed piece of artwork on the wall (in a familiar feel-good, rah-rah format). It is labeled "Perfection." AA never speaks of perfection. In fact, the refrain is "Progress, Not Perfection." As they show this in the background, the meeting chair admits to a relapse, and directly contradicts the notion of perfection. Someone on the production crew was either ignorant, or was introducing some irony to the set design.

    • Julie Ramierez was killed on October 31, 2004.
