    Great episode more like without a trace , we know who's responsible from the beginning so different from normal cold case , one of the best episodes I've seen
  • Outstanding Challanging Episode

    It's Chellenging to wonder how people can go so wrong in their Psych. How a man can be so psychpath. ?
  • A different scenario inspired by concurrent series gives to this long-timed show a new air bubble.

    After more than one hundred episode, the Cold Case serie presents sometimes a little breathlessness. Indeed, the scenario web is almost always the same: to interrogate some witness , to discover their lies and finally to confort them in order to solve the case. But this episode is different and gives another way. A luminous way because this time one victim could be alive. Some could say that this scenario seems more correspond to a Crimnal Minds ones and we can't denie it, but it's a new air bubble to this long-lived serie. A good surprise and a new way of investigation for the Lilly Rush's team.moreless
  • greatest episode of season 5 (and ever?)

    wow. wow. Words cannot express how amazingly amazing this amazing episode is. The killer/doer is the worst sob since George in "Mindhunters" and "The Woods". He kidnapps women, locks women up in dungeons, breaks their spirits then brick-walls them in when all hope is gone, unlike previous serial-killer episodes. Another unique aspect of this episode was the fact that Scotty and Lilly went to get him ("John Smith")but on the way back they got to talk to him and find him victim, in the process, though, they discover multiple victims. They discovered him mentality and the reasons why he killed (I think when he was younger he saw a woman drowning liked it, and didn't do anything). Overall, this is the most chilling episode of one of the best seasons. Everyone should watch it. Maybe no more than one time since it's so powerful, so just once is enough.moreless
  • A bride-to be disappears during her engagement party. Lilly and Scott drive the villian to West Virginia hearing his side of the story.

    This is by far one of my favorite episodes. It is different than other episodes in that you know who did it from the beginning. This villian is one of the more crazy ones in this series. The interaction between Lilly, Scott, and the villian are great and you get to see a different side of Lilly They each had something to live for or something to hold on to but every one of this victims have eventually "broken", until Brenda. This episode is also different in that the ending is sweet as opposed to the typical bittersweet ending we are used to.moreless
