Ah, the episode in which we get introduced to Woody. He looks so cute and dippy at the start of the episode but by midway through he's really showing what he's made of in the interrogation room. I have already seen later episodes of Crossing Jordan, but if I were watching this episode without seeing those I would certainly see potential in him.
Garret and Jordan seem to have switched roles in this episode - Garret is intent on finding the criminal while Jordan takes a step back to allow him to do so. While this wouldn't work in every episode, it's a nice change for the odd storyline.
The dinner party at Jordan's place, good old Nigel with his plan B to save the party. Drunken morgue staff are funny!
Nigel and Bug add comedic value to the episode as usual - always enjoy their parts.
Nice simple story to follow in this one with plenty of personal bits blended into the middle - the ideal mix to make a good episode.
