This was a filler episode. Good to see a two-case episode, even when one of the cases was dort of lame.
The case about the young man being "killed" by the dinosaur was in my opinion ridiculous. It was because I can't believe a person could have such a motive for murder. I guess I understand the psycopaths and the serial killers but not someone who looked normal. She may have been disturbed but still, don't get it. And well, having obnoxious Hodges on the case... The other case was okay. I like how Nick gets emotional when he has to deal with the victims' families. Some colleagues of him might not understand him but I think it's totally normal.
