  • not bad at all...

    This episode starts with a fun scene between Woody and Jordan but it fast turns into a bad one. Woody's new car it's that

    There's a cop killer on the loose and a woman dead in his trunk. The cop, Spalding, left two kids, a boy and a girl, and Lu asks Woody to talk to the boy.

    It immediately sets Woody on because is his past with a similar situation with his father. You see him getting affected by it and trying to help the kid.

    It almost went the wrong way, the kid plants evidence so they can catch the husband but Woody covers for him and that's not good for him. Rene goes after him, a "bad cop".

    Jordan helps out and so does Lu, you see Jordan and Woody closer than the last episodes.

    As for the rest of the team, I think I didn't see Lily in this one, I'm not sure but...

    Nigel goes in a alien hunt due to a body that came into the morgue, against Bug's advice not to.moreless
  • I completely and totally adored this episode. It had everything a good central story storyline, humour and some really wonderful character interaction. This episode signifies exactly what I love about this show.moreless

    Crossing Jordan as a simple formula that works every time. That brilliant mix of fabulous characters, intriguing storyines and fabulous wit is what makes Crossing Jordan an understated winner.

    This particular episode does not let you down. I don\'t know how many people out there are Jordan and Woody fans, but I\'ve got to be perfectly honest and say that I am 100%. In terms of that I(and my fellow Jordan and Woody fans) were given a slice of what we love. That incredible chemistry and longing that the pair just oozed.

    A surprising outcome, which I was suprised to found enjoyment in was watching the unlikely pairing of Lu and Jordan. Not to mention Nigel and the aliens...hillarious.

    A complete winner!moreless
  • Alright already we get it; Woody and Jordan still have feelings for each other.

    I do not like that DA Rene Walcot or what ever her name is! She jumps to the wrong conclusion every time.

    I loved this episode it was great to get a closer look at Woody and what a great acting job. Jordan shocked me buy jumping to the wrong conclusion, she is usually better than that. She must be loosing her touch. Jordan and Pallock are starting to wear on me, and his obvious jealously is wearing me out. He just needs to move past it or leave. Granted it is hard when it is so obvious the feelings are still there.

    The overall story was great, the writing and acting was great in the episode. At times it seems someone is struggling with the performance but everything seemed to go real smooth.

    Keep it up!

  • This episode was great. I loved the interaction between woody, jordan, lu and jd. It was heated and wonderfully acted adn written. It was like a love rectangle.

    loved this episode. It was so good. It was great to have to some good woody and jordan interaction, i have missed it. THe guy jd is jordans boyfriend and he has been on for five episodes. I could so tell the jd is jealous. I do not want him to stay, i started feeling this way after last week. I think he is a jerk. I like lu, but i don't want her with woody. She seems pretty honest and nice, but i think there could be something interesting in her past. I loved the nigel storyline. It broke my heart. It seems like there is always a 'poor nigel' storyline every season. He really needs a girl. Lilly wasn't on this week or last, but i'm assuming this was becasue the actress kathryn hahn was doing a play, but next week she is back, along with the quirky da from totatl recall and Det. Seely. I loved it when lu and jordan were talking in the morgue, and lu was like im woody's ex-shrink and then jordan was like i'm like woodys ex-somethin, or almost ex-something. She finally admitted something. I liked lu and jordan working together, they seem like they could be friends. WHen woody and jd got in the fight, i wish lu had waited just a little longer to come stop it, cause i wanted to hear what woody was going to say to jd. I loved the music and jordan's oufits.I really wonder what direction they are going to take lu's character in. its going to be interesting. Jerry o'connell did a really good acting job, and it was refreshing to see somewhat of old woody come back, but more mature. It makes me happier. I have hopes for woody and jordan, but you never know with those too. Great episode.moreless
  • Bah! Aliens!

    Although I consider it almost blasphemous to speak against my favourite show, I really believe that Jordan and Woody need to be freed from the awkward relationships they’re in right now. Jordan and the reporter have little, if any, chemistry on screen, and the psychologist that Woody is paired with is nothing less then a minor annoyance.

    Well then, now that I’m done sounding important, I LOVED the alien-abduction plot that got Nigel riled up. The whole abduction-support-group-meets-odd-scientist was fantastic. And, to top all of this off, he falls asleep on the roof, with the girl, waiting for whatever might be coming for the body. I thought it was romantic...but that’s just me...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In Born to Run (from season 1) we learned that Jordan's apartment # was 311.

      In Intruded (season 4) her apartment # was changed to 3d. The bill for Jordan's car repair list her apartment number as 3d.

      I guess Jordan now has a new apartment number.

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Woody: (talking about the car) Listen to that kitty curl.
      Jordan: Muy macho.

    • Nigel: Abduction phenomena has been reported on every corner of the globe. I even have an uncle who was taken by aliens.
      Bug: Why doesn't that surprise me?

    • Brian: What I don't get is, why does he need his glasses on if he's, like...dead?
      Nigel: There are mysteries in this world, Brian, I cannot begin to explain.

    • Nigel: Where's your sense of adventure?
      Bug: Laying dormant, along with my lust for life and my quest for greatness.

    • Pollack: Next time you need a lift give me a call. I rather you weren't out there riding around with cowboy cops.

    • Renee: The last thing we need is to get prematurely excited, pardon my French.

    • Jordan: You must know him pretty well by now. Huh?
      Lu: We don't actually know each other.
      Jordan: I don't mean that...well I mean you are his shrink right?
      Lu: Ex-shrink.
      Jordan: Oh. I guess you could call me his...ex-something. I guess I should say ex-almost something. He's a good guy Woody. Good heart. But over these last few months I've seen him get so invested in a case that he...maybe we shouldn't be having this conversation.

    • Bug: there anyone we should call or any medication we should know about?

    • Pollack: Love is like malaria. Once it's under your skin it's never really gone. It just goes dormant. Sometimes for years. Then when you least expect it it's back.

    • Woody: And I'm going to tell you what I learned. You don't fall down. You stand up. You act like a man. And you always honor your father's memory.

    • Pollack: You're not very popular around here are you mate? Something about setting a cop killer free?
      Woody: Too bad about your arm Pollack. Hope it doesn't get gangrene and fall off.

    • Lu: Hey Woody! C'mon. At least let his gun shot wound heal before you break his jaw.

    • Woody: You know what I mean. I got myself in a real jam here.
      Jordan: I just wish you hadn't done it Woody.
      Woody: (pause) Yeah. (phone rings) This is Hoyt. Oh no come on. I'm on my way. Jesse Spalding. The cops son. Looks like he made another stupid mistake.
      Jordan: Another mistake. What was his first mistake?
      Woody: I've gotta go.
      Jordan: You're protecting him. You can't do this. You can't throw your life away.
      Woody: You want to help me Jordan. Help me nail this guy.

    • Rene: You caught me in a generous mood. (walks away, then turns around) Don't say I never did you any favors.

    • Jordan: Woody...uh...what you did for Jesse Spalding...putting your life on the line like that. It was a real good thing. It made me proud to know you.
      Woody: I appreciate that. Thank you for your help. You didn't have to do that.
      Jordan: (walks away then turns around) See you around Woody?
      Woody: See you around.

    • Woody: Stay with me!
