  • Heartwrenching episode in many ways. It's a tough topic to deal with, but I thought it was very well handled. For More reviews: www.crossingjordanencyclopedia.com

    The opening scene was hilarious. Woody should know better. Know better than to give up his coffee no matter what Jordan says! The gory gruesome and false story was coming as soon as a person walked in that elevator. It wouldn’t have matter what Jordan said. Gotta give her points for getting a free coffee out of Woody.



    From there things got dark and ugly very quickly. It’s hard to stomach the thought of a child being abducted and raped…but for that child to be held against her will and repeatedly forced to perform sexual acts is horrifying. Even worse is that there’s a ‘want’ for children for this situation. Our world is truly messed up. Jordan: Couple points on Jordan. Jordan and her father—she hasn’t heard from her Dad since he left. He present (a very unimaginative present by the way) was sent back to her. She doesn’t know what to do. She’s beginning to think that there’s nothing she can do. Her dad obviously doesn’t want to be found. It’s a little unbelievable. It’s been just her and her father since Jordan was ten. Granted it hasn’t been an easy relationship. Jordan pushes her father’s buttons quite often, but they love each other. Jordan breaks down and calls the PI. I think she realizes how much time she’s missing that she could be spending with her father. It would be nice to see him at least appear, have them reconcile and then he can go his way, but I think they’d at least keep in contact if he returned and they could hash a few things out.



    Flora and Jordan—Jordan’s caring. You can’t ever accuse her of not caring. She dealt beautifully with Flora.



    Daisy Cavanaugh. Cute. The child molestation hits Jordan (it hits the entire staff) hard. Jordan (and Lily) does everything she can to reassure Flora that she’s done nothing wrong, that no one is going to hurt her. It’s heartbreaking Flora’s reaction to Woody and her comments (horrifying us, but seemed too natural a response for her.) Woody is just as horrified at Flora’s reaction to him. He’s not use to that, despite all his years on the job.



    Flora thinks she’s ‘dirty’. My heart went out to her and every other child those criminals held captive. All those emotions of inadequacy, of thinking she’s not wanted, or her general fear of men—she’s going to have a tough time of getting past this.



    Woody: Woody interrogating the guy in the hospital bed was great.



    Woody asks Flora to do something – she asks if she has to take her closes off—Woody backs off. The poor girl.



    Lily: Lily really shaken up over shooting. Seely was surprisingly sweet (oh he had some of his moments). Even Jordan remarked on Seely’s ‘nicer’ side showing through—‘What is with the Mr. Do-gooder routine?’ I wasn’t expecting the ‘date’ (if you call going for coffee a date) at the end. I’m enjoying the ride at the moment, so I’ll sit back and continue to see where this heads.



    Side note: When the brother visited the morgue alarm bells went off. Keys…get her house in order? Hello she’s been dead for only a few hours. Who even thinks about that when someone’s just died? Easy to pick the villain in this one.



    One last note: The father of LeAnn was looking for blood. A vigilante. As wrong as it was for him to go on his shooting spree, I kind of second the words Jordan said when she said he was doing the world a favor.

    This one was one of the best I have seen.

    The scene in the elevator is funny, all that story of blood with that guy there was cute.

    And this one has a big beginning. A woman comes by the morgue and gets shoot right in from of Lily and Jordan! That was an amazing start!



    This is a very hard theme to talk about. A child being kidnapped is hard enough, being raped is worse but being kept in a basement and forced to be raped several times is inhuman, is the worse thing a person can do! It makes me sick!



    And that guy, the vigilant, I'm with him. The people responsible for such horrible thing should die, that way they wouldn't hurt anyone else. There are crimes and crimes but this one...

    I was glad that all the girls in the basement got back to their families and that the bad guys are dead or arrested.



    A funny thing, Leah used Jordan's knife to stab the guy but when Jordan pulled it out, there was no blood...moreless
