  • Jordan reaches new heights of absurd behavior.

    I don't know why I continue to watch this series. Habit I suppose. Garret orders her to go home but she insists on going down to the bottom of the well. They don't let us see how she managed to ignore Garret again, but it this context it seems like one place where he could assert her authority. It also seems absurd that Garret would be the person to go down in the well. It seems like a firefighter would be the right person.

    The boy was already dead. It seems that amputating his leg to get him out would be the least of the parents' problem. The body was already seriously damaged and would probably be further disturbed during autopsy.

    Of course, the episode is filled with other absurdities. Instantaneous matching of the bullet to the gun owner is one. A bug that has some of Jordan's tissue doesn't seem to be likely.

    I suppose if you like pure excitement it would be a good episode.moreless

    ok i loved this ep..i was so on the edge of my seat..i love the drama, some comedy, and semi-romance..romance wasnt so great in this one but oh well..i loved it from the beginning..i mean jordan was sick but she had the determination to find the boys and i totally admire her for that..everyone told her to go home..but she wouldnt..unfortunatley that didnt end so well for her and yes this is going to be kind of a spoiler..she finds the boys and then they have to try to get out from underground while the gang is furiously trying to find the boys and when they find out jordan too..and i was so mad when she tells off woody..all he did was care about hermoreless
  • the woods...

    Three boys missing, it's raining like hell and Jordan has a cold...

    I liked this one, specially every time Jordan heard the words "Go home" lol

    But seriously, it was a good episode with a lot of suspense and interesting moments. When Jordan as holding on to the rope and the guy was looking down, I suspected the Ranger, I don't know why but I thought it was him.

    That plan with the water was good but even her was thinking it might not work at certain point. But all ended well at least for two families, the other didn't get so lucky. The best thing the can have it that the boy died saving a friend.moreless

  • The Crossing Jordan Encyclopedia Reviews and so much more.

    WOW! This was is not the episode to miss if you’re planning on missing one. Action packed, intense, under currents and tears: you couldn’t ask for more.

    This was one of those few episodes where the entire cast was a part of one case. No A story, no B story, just one tension filled hour of the gang working towards the same goal.

    I knew when we started the episode that the killer more than likely had to be someone involved in the search and rescue mission. So I picked up fairly early that the most likely suspect would be the ranger, but I wasn’t sure. I’m glad the killer wasn’t a random person, but someone involved in a big way with the whole plot.

    Jordan and Woody: Jordan’s put up with Woody’s attitude in the past two episodes. It was a little frustrating because it’s not like the Jordan we know to not have a response to Woody. I can understand though that she’s battling between saying something cruel so she feels better and keeping her mouth shut to not make the situation any worse than it already is, especially since she realized Woody needs some help. I give Woody a few points for asking Jordan how she was feeling in the beginning…it’s better than last week when he completely ignored her. Jordan kind of brushed him off…so he went back to his brooding self around her.

    The more telling scene I believe was when Jordan says she’s going to search the trail and Woody tells her no. He cares for Jordan still. Granted he would have said that to anyone who suggested searching for the boys but the way he said it to Jordan implied concern. There is hope for our dark-sided Woody. I, however, think we’ve lost a part of the ‘happy-go-lucky’ Woody we knew from season one. I think he died when Woody was shot. When Woody works through this I think we’re going to have a much more mature Woody on our hands.

    I loved the looks Garret, Nigel and the Ranger had on their faces as they witness the little sparring. Garret and Nigel looked liked they were just getting clued in on things. I’d love to hear Nigel’s take on the situation.

    The end scene was awkward. Woody tries to show concern…concern we know he was feeling from the phone call he made to Garret. Jordan doesn’t make it easy for Woody though and he leaves with things as strained as ever between them.

    Lily and Garret: Garret’s on edge. I don’t know what exactly is going on in that head of his, but something is wrong. I do know Garret has been very abrupt with Lily. Lily seems to be truly trying to be Garret’s friend, but he more often than not is giving her the cold shoulder.

    Jordan and Garret: Jordan’s stubborn. Too stubborn for her own good most times, but this time it paid off. I loved the scene between the two of them. For once Garret gets Jordan to see the total seriousness of the situation and accept her role—take credit for it. The connection the two of them has is so strong words aren’t even needed. The ending scene of Jordan crying in Garret’s arms was the perfect ending to a high tension story.

    Jordan’s ‘executive’ decision making was one of the many priceless Garret/Jordan moments. Garret might not be back to himself, but even he can’t resist Jordan’s charming way.

    Jordan and the boys: My favorite scene of this episode was when Jordan, carrying Danny, looked a Todd and smiled after they found Garret and the gang (and the music couldn’t have been more perfect). It was the most touching scene. Jordan kept her word and rescued the boys…helped rescue them…since Jordan needed some rescuing of her own. The interaction between her and the boys was so heart felt. She helps them physically and mentally (Todd—blaming himself).

    And lastly Todd’s wonderful comment about Jordan’s being crazy! Even the kid who’s only known her for a few hours picked up on the fact. Of course we wouldn’t change that for anything. Jordan wouldn’t be Jordan if she wasn’t a little ‘crazy’

    Oh one last thought: Where’s Sydney? Have we lost another member of the morgue with no explanation?
