    I enjoyed this episode but it wasn't a favorite. Though after the of last week's news, it be hard to top it. I was impressed with the fake-outs and the cgi. I cant imagine though having to pretend a well loved fellow officer is still alive to fake out a suspect though. *huggles them*

    Even though I know Lovato wasnt being mean in doubting Flack (her saying he was being soft) I wanted yell at her. Thankfully she wised up. I hope she doesn't doubt him elsewise/where. And yes I am actually talking about *that*.

    The case was good, I liked the episode overall but I don't find like I have anything to say in particular about it. It was "good" to see Mac all pissed off, it doesn't happen that often and it's the most powerful because of it. I wouldn't want to get on his bad side either.

    On the shallow side, I heartily approve of Adam's haircut, he was very hot. And speaking of hotness, Danny in the light blue shirt..... *swoons*

    The racial pandering on this show and others like it is getting disgusting. It must be a prime directive in Hollywood never to cast blacks as villains. In this case, the murderers are white folks in black man masks. Really? Call me a racist but try to remember the last time a black person was the perp of the week in ANY popular TV crime drama.

    Wow white people are not the criminals in all serial cop shows. CSI's franchise has black villains all the time and Criminal Minds so get off of it . The episode was based on a real criminal using a black mask to commit crimes and as to the episode it was an okay outing nothing special.

    I thought this episode was a really good one! I loved how well the team worked together on this one and Flack's performances in the interrogation room was awesome! I really enjoyed this episode.

    danharr: Oh really? I've been watching all versions of CSI, Law and Order, Rizzoli and Isles Criminal Minds, and a few others for many years . They average one black perp every other season. It's a fact that in NYC, just 4% of the homicides are committed by whites but in TV crime dramas, it's 99%.The few series that had more, like Law and Order: Trial by Jury, Chicago Code, and Southland, quickly get yanked from the network. I'll grant that only NCIS: LA seems to be an exception, but not the original NCIS. Sorry but the casting for the role of weekly killer is strictly a whites only club. No diversity there.
