  • An important one for Jordan

    9.6
    This is a very important one.

    Jordan and Woody go to a club and he drops her home. When she goes to the bedroom there's someone with a knife waiting for her. She gets a cut on her hand.



    After some minutes, Garret calls her, there was a fire and they found a body, Woody is also in the scene.

    She looks strange.



    The body is from a guy and while looking for the accelerate they discover another body, decomposing.

    Jordan is not OK, she does both autopsies in the same night, the decomposing body belongs to Julie Harrison, her husband was arrest for the murderer ten years ago and at the time Jordan and Garret fought about the case. Jordan still looks weird.



    Sometimes she remembers thing from the intruder and reacts violently to the people that surprise her. She is too emotional. Garret gets her of the case.



    Skipping most of it, she talks to Dr. Stiles and we find out what happen that night. The guy grabbed her, made her take her cloths off and she just stood watching him searching the apartment. Then he found her gun and pointed it, she then reacted and stabbed him.



    All this time she felt powerless, she has the same age her mother had when she was killed and in top of all the only thing robbed was her mother locket. When she told this to Stiles, she finally closed the chapter. She is not her mother.



    Woody recovers the locket later.moreless
  • This was a pivotal episode for Jordan. It finally brought some closure on one aspect of Jordan and her mom. For more reviews see www.crossingjordanencyclopedia.com

    A strong episode in which Jordan got to shine. She finally opens up and expresses her fear that she’ll become her mother. She also realizes that she’s her own person. I think this was a pivotal episode for her.



    Jordan: What an eye opening episode about Jordan. Who’d have thought we’d ever see her vulnerable. It’s not often we get to see Jordan express her fears.



    I think we finally got some closure on Jordan’s mother in respect that Jordan finally realize she’s not her mother. We know Jordan fears she will become/turn out like her mother (her mother was mentally sick). This episode finally proved to Jordan that she’s not her mother’s daughter. She is her own person, living her own healthy life. She has her own future which is up to her to write.



    Jordan’s typical obsessive-ness became more like paranoia in this case. Her issues with her mother blocked her from seeing any sort of reality. She was afraid to go back to her own apartment and was constantly blaming the attack on herself. She was convinced she’d done something wrong and it was her fault she was attacked. Jordan had a break down (you new it was coming...sooner or later), but she was able to pick herself back up and move on with her life.



    1- She never reacted when Garret kicked her off the case. 2- She had a major outburst at Lily. Those are not typical Jordan traits. There were many other things through out the episode that caught your attention and just added all the more to this great story. This was one of Jordan's better episodes--a growth episode.



    Her co-workers realized something wasn’t right and were looking out for her (despite her initial anger over that fact) It’s as Garret said, they’re her family too and they’re here for her. I think she finally realized the truth of that statement.



    Garret: It’s not often he shows ‘passion’ on a case, or gets too ‘emotionally’ involved, but he does on this case. Garret’s belief that the husband is innocent has him going the extra mile trying to find the truth. He’s not thrilled with the truth he finds, but he proves that his gut feeling was right years ago.

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: When Woody and Garret are chasing Harrison, there's a shot from the end of the alley, where you see Woody run out, draw his gun and then you see Garret run out. A few seconds later the shot changes cameras, and you see Garret run out again.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Woody: It shouldn't take a man this long to get to first base, Jordan.
      Jordan: I don't know, Woody. I'm really not into baseball analogies. They remind me of my dad, you know. And then I got him in my head. And that gets even really warped for me.

    • Jordan: I'm sorry, Woody. You know, we tried this once before.
      Woody: We have?
      Jordan: Yeah, you know, that time in California.
      Woody: Jordan, that was like a kiss I'd give my aunt.
      Jordan: You French kiss your aunt?

    • Lily: Is it just me, or is there something seriously wrong with Jordan?
      Bug: Well now, there's a loaded question.

    • Jordan: (to Dr. Stiles) You know me..I'm all about the mental health.

    • Dr. Stiles: I mean, for the last 24 years, you've been hiding in a locked room. You wanna ... leave a door open? Leave it open to let yourself out.
