  • The fifth season begins where the fourth season left off. Mac calls the team to Jersey City (Where he was left for dead by the robber who took him hostage) where the body of the robber's accomplise was found. More bodies soon turn up in this case.

    One thing I like about this episode happened in the very beginning. The opening scene is of Mac escaping his watery grave. It was painfully obvious that he would survive and I am glad that the producers of this episode told us that right away instead of trying some phony suspense ploy. The scenes with Flak's not too bright sister were unnecessary. They are obviously meant to start a story arc for this season but I don't like it already. There were also too many close up shots of Gary Sinise's face. Despite this I enjoyed this episode very much.
