The problem with watching many crime dramas is that once you've seen a crime commited in a particular way, you're bound to see it done the same way on another show. However this episode was different in that the case was different from anything I have seen in other shows. Sure, I've seen murder pacts in shows before, but never done in this way. An interesting take on this particular crime by the writers of this episode.
In addition to the interesting case, this was a very Nick & Sara heavy episode. In this episode we see Nick's compassion shine through and we also learn a little of Sara's frustration with the justice system. After watching this episode I feel like I know the characters that little but better.
Overall, a good episode.
