  • Mac and the team investigate what looks to be the open and shut case of an indian chief shot and killed on a commuter train. As the investigation progresses, Mac soon learns the case won't be as easy as originally expected.

    This episode is good. Just good. While I did like the way the story is written and thought that it came to a plausible conclusion, there are flaws with this episode which prevent me from saying that it is just "good." The first flaw is the indian chief being shot on the train. It's even mentioned in the episode that the odds of that happening are incredibly remote. The other big flaw is Danny deciding on names for his unborn child. Danny should focus on the case. Second, it was obvious right from the beginning that his child is female.
