  • Not one of my favorite eps, but it did catch my attention.

    In 'Countdown' we get to see how the detectives react under pressure. From Elliot and Olivia exchanging 'Screw you's' (my favorite part) to Olivia slamming her fist down on a sandwich (sounds a bit weird I know). The race is on as these detectives try their hardest to find a missing girl who only has a matter of a couple of days to live. This episode kept me guessing at what was going to happen next since the detectives became unpredictable with their newfound overworked attitudes. This ep also becomes more emotional as we learn of 5 other girls who have been murdered and this seems to spur on the detectives even more. It was a relief when they found the missing girl, but I thought the ending was a bit bland, almost too easy. Other than that, it was an ok episode.
