  • Wonderful episode, despite it's flaws.

    I think the only "issue" that I have with this episode, is that Lindsay's past seems forced. Even as early as "Manhattan Manhunt" (2x07) we know that she's seen some pretty horrific scenes, but that could've been because she's a CSI. It felt as though the writers had made up the background on the spur of the moment when they found out Anna Belknap was pregnant and would need maternity leave. It worked, yes, but dude to the fact that Belknap hasn't been a big part of the show for the majority of S3 up to this episode, the scenes feel very rushed. However, they were well acted, and the fact that Danny showed up in Montana to support her only made it that much better. Excellent reunion for the two, as anything else would've made fans of the pairing feel cheated out of seeing their eyes lock for the first time in too long. The rest of the episode was nicely written as well, with an excellent guest performance by Criss Angel as the crazy magician Luke Blade.
