  • Leonard Brooks has moved from arson to murder. Mac and the team try to guess his next move to prevent further deaths.

    My thoughts on "Where There's Smoke..." are mixed. I liked seeing Leonard's back story, but on the other hand it felt a little cliched. We see where his pyromania comes from. It did come across as formulaic that the cause was an abusive parent. The fact that he was exacting revenge on the family members for abusing or not helping him was formulaic as well. There are some positive points about this episode however. One is Rob Morrow. As with the previosu episode he does well here. Gary Sinise and company always deliver a strong performance consistently. I did like this episode, but that's it. I liked it.
