  • Gotta love misdirection

    Another great episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent. When Goren and Eames begin to investigate a homicide of a young girl in a bathroom, all the evidence points in the direction of a middle aged man. Trusting of his own hunches, Goren leans into him, only to find out shortly afterwards that the suspect has hung himself in the bathroom. As bad press and Gorens own self-effacing uncertainty take their toll, an old nemisis from the past, Nicole Wallace, taunts him in a local restaraunt. After some investigation they find that the past evidence had been set up, Nicole had wanted to frame Goren, or discredit his deductive abilities. Ends in a great conversation between Goren and Wallace in which a lot of character detail comes to the fore. Quite a good episode, though they're starting to use Nicole a little much as of late. A nemesis works fine for a few occurences, and becomes redundant after that. This, being her second appearance, leaves her character fresh and wonderfully deviant. Well work the 45 minute watching time.
