    learned:


    * texting on the job doesn't seem so bad now...


    * there is only one thing which can cure a Bad Seed: trading.


    * kisses > knife


    * Huang with the spiffy new hair says: "Talk to the higher-ups...of this tv network, not the police..."


    * bulletproof vests save lives...and lead to some Amaro fanservice.

    The kid who played Henry was really good. His look in the final shot was chilling. It's hard to believe parents could let a kid get that out of hand, but he was very good at manipulating them. I'm glad Nick revealed in the beginning that he wears a bullet proof vest, or I would have been very upset when he got shot. As it is it turned out good. Cynthia relented and let Nick tell Gil he's his father, and I got to see Danny Pino without his shirt. Win-win.

    This episode gave me chills. This is one of the better episodes of the season. Both child actors were very good. I'd go so far as to say the actor who portrayed Henry was great. I had a personal experience with a child who was very much like Henry but I won't go into details because I've had previous posts deleted on tv.com because they were 'personal'. All I'll say is, there really is no cure for sociopaths and it's sad that there are so many children like this that actually exist.


    I LOVED when Rollins was left alone with Henry. Her discomfort seemed so real. Great episode with a lot of great moments.

    Superb episode, great writing and acting with emphasis on acting because that boy did a hell of a job. I still think of this episode and it gives me the chills.

    Dr. Huang's facial expression when Henry grabs Caveman and starts pummeling it is PRICELESS.
