  • Heavily emotional, in the line of the first season. (...and Danny takes his shirt off)

    After the darkness of Season 1, CSI: NY changed its style and became less anguished and less gloomy; in Season 3, most episodes even seem to start with a party. But this one may be the exception that proves the rule. It’s not gloomy or visually dark but it deals with heavily emotional subjects. I guessed who the killer was right away, but suffered until the end with the slow unraveling of such a painful story. Since there was only one case, instead of the usual two, great emphasis was put on Hawkes’ memories of his past and the reason why he left the hospital work – not exactly a light topic. Amid all that emotional turmoil, the scene with Danny taking off his shirt brings viewers some welcome respite. All in all, a great episode.
