I was somewhat let down by this episode. It seemed really promising in the commercials- that someone was going after the people listed on a blog. If it had literally been that... and the blogger didn't even realize someone was carrying out vigilante justice based on his web rants... that sounds pretty solid. Very mysterious- and isn't that kind of frightening? And the big twist could have been that the blogger eventually realized what was happening and purposely put someone on his blog to be killed. I could see Cutter arguing conspiracy, or at least reckless endangerment, and the defense attorney pleading his client's ignorance. I could keep going... because there is a lot of potential in that story line.
Instead, we unfortunately experienced the strange lady with the delusions of people on cell phones cavorting with the devil and a web community which has so much time on their hands they apparently enjoy enabling murderers.
Some neat revelations about Det. Bernard... unfortunately, at what price? The bad man put him up on the magical website and suddenly he's public enemy number one. Internet culture doesn't work quite like that- it just seemed as if logic didn't follow- just like Cutter shouldn't reasonably expect any judge to allow him to charge everyone who posted something nasty on a blog with manslaughter!
Love my L&O, so I expect a little better.
