    It's difficult to review this without spoilers, so I make no promises. It really isn't very original to have the turn where the seeming victim is actually the perpetrator. Which seems a shame out of writers we know can do better. Anyway, this show really annoyed me with its negative view of human nature, and particularly, of women. I mean, what was the message - that all women are gold diggers and what you don't give them they'll steal? Hell, maybe when they have babies it's only to take your money... and if you have money, you should definately win custody based on that... Ew.moreless
  • An excellent episode!!

    Wow. This episode was very well done. It focused mostly on Nigel which was different but good. First, Steve Valentine did a great job of portraying Nigel. Usually, Nigel is his silly but brilliant self but this episode showed a different side of him. Nigel gets so upset when Maddy is kidnapped and tries so hard to get her back even though they aren't related. When Jordan and Bug find out, Jordan keeps her word to not tell anyone while Bug tells Woody so he can help. Nigel gets so upset when he finds out what Bug did. When it appears Maddy is dead, Nigel blames himself. He is heartbroken when he finds Sarah used him. It makes you wonder if Nigel will ever get over what Sarah did and find someone who truly loves him. Second, I loved when Lily was scared when the John Doe suddenly wakes up on the autopsy table. She tries so hard to find out who he is when he can't remember and make sure he is okay when they have let him leave. I found it so touching that all he has is the love letter and while he can't remember who he is, he knows he loves Doris and needs to find her. The end scene with him and Doris is heartbreaking. I personally thought this episode was really well done and is one of the best done. The only thing was that I knew right at the beginning that Beth was part of it. I just didn't suspect Sarah. Praise to Steve Valentine for excellent acting!!moreless
  • Poor Nigel. A dream becomes a nightmare

    Nigel has a secret lol he has a new girlfriend and she has a daughter. I was so happy for him, he found someone, he was happy.

    The night was going well, I found it so sweet, the way Maddie likes Nigel. Then the dream became a nightmare. Madeline is kidnapped at night, the same night Nigel spent at their house. It suddenly turns into a race against time to find her.

    This one was nerve-wracking. When he walked into the kid's room and saw the blood...



    Jordan offered to help and Bug called Woody without them knowing...



    I have to say, I never believe she was dead. When they went to that house by the lake, I just couldn't believe it. And I was tight. All this so Sarah could stay with Maddie away from Philip. It backfired and they ended up at the police station.



    I was so sad for Nigel, at the beginning he was so happy, he had a girlfriend with a great daughter that liked him. At the end he had nothing. At least his friends were there.moreless
  • Nigel enlists the help of Jordan to find the kidnapped daughter of his love. Little does he know the real reason for the girl\'s apparent abduction

    Being a fan of Steve Valentine and he portrayal of the character, Nigel Townsend, I looked forward to this episode. It became an even more \"must see\" once I found out that the initial idea for the storyline was actually one from Steve himself.



    It was wonderful to watch Steve go from very happy, fun and loving to manic with fear when he finds the little girl missing from her bed and the room filled with blood.



    I loved watching the various facial expressions on this actor\'s face, from joy at doing magic for the little girl to the abject horror of suddenly realizing that the woman he thought he knew and loved was absolutely crazy.



    Bravo Steve for showing us the range of your acting abilities.



    The B-story was also wonderful. It was great to see Joel Grey once again. He played the lost and lonely man with no memory brilliantly.



    All in all, this is one of my top five favorite Crossing Jordan Episodes.moreless

    I honestly thought that this was what TV was meant to be about. The good with the bad, happy with the sad. I am glad to know that Steve came up for this idea himself, I figured he would have. Only a great actor can put that much passion into this type of episode. I aplaud you.
