  • I liked the twist on the normal chronological way to tell a story.

    It was a neat idea to start this episode in the middle of the story. The opening felt like a normal case. When the show suddenly goes back to events in the previous days, it was a nice deviation from beginning – middle – end storytelling. It did make me upset to see Flack's integrity questioned though. He's always been shown as an efficient officer with good morals, so you'd think his bosses wouldn't be considering him as a suspect. The case revolves around the unfortunate problem of kids turning events in their lives into life or death matters that really shouldn't be. It's something that should make you sick to your stomach. Sinise played the scenes with a balance of anger and remorse over the circumstances very well.
