  • A man is shot down in an alley and Goren and Eames must track down a man moving through the world of the elite who is probably responsible. The last ten minutes of this show could be some of the best TV ever!

    It was interesting that the brother who was taking on the persona's had worked at Princeton and you sort of wondered where those names he was using came from. I was waiting for the detectives to tie all that together. Once the Princeton piece came out that became an obvious trail to follow.

    Also I was a little surprised about how easily he was duping these women as people who have money usually are much more careful about those kind of things. The fact that the last woman's father had done the credit check and nothing came up. That is almost impossible these days.

    It was a great twist in the end when Goren came up with the fact that Thomas did not kill his mother, but basically took the rap that his brother put on him even though his brother could not have seen him based on the scenario they showed.

    Eames was eventually going to find the gun used in the murder, but Goren's last ten minutes with Thomas was some of the best TV ever. Yeah, they do this each week, but this was special. I can't believe this guy has never won any major acting awards. This scene with Sam Trammell was well acted by both actors and very believable with Goren getting Thomas to admit he shot his brother in his grief.

    Another fine episode of L&O:CI. Thanks for reading...
