  • A bit contrived.

    Although C.M. is one of my favorite shows, this episode felt a bit too contrived. It wasn't bad at all, but it didn't really flow naturally. There was a mortician who all of a sudden starts to experiment with transplanting legs, while the person who's to benefit from said experiments isn't bothered by her condition in the least. The team doesn't come up with a trigger for the sudden behaviour, the comparison to WOII german surgeons was different but did not explain why.

    A very nice surprise was how Alex handled herself in the prison, she wasn't intimidated at all, the prisoner was an open book and left him with a clever snark. She also confronted Reid when his behaviour was too out of character for her to let it slide, but backed of and respected his privacy when he asked her to.

    Wich brings me to Reids behaviour, all of a sudden he has this connection to a women who has helped him but who herself is in a situation where she can't talk freely. It will be interesting to find out the details of how this came to be. All in all not too bad of an episode but there certainly have been better.
