    This episode picks up where the last one left off.



    As for the case, Kate tells the team that they need to find out what the escapees were like before they became criminals. They then begin interviewing their relatives and Ray’s sister reveals that Ray was molested by a coach and that’s why he turned out like he did. It’s quickly discover that one of the as children was tortured, one was bullied and one was ignored. Soon, the guy who Ray goes to get cars calls C.D. and Nate and informs them that he called for another car. They go to meet him and soon Jinny shows up. Nate begins to feel like something is wrong and Ray appears outside the bar and begins to shoot from outside. Soon Ray and Gina split after someone shoots their other partner at the bar. Raina thinks the two might be on a boat after getting some pictures from Gina’s uncle. She calls Jinny and the two go to the boat without a warrant and discover the two there. Jinny ends up shooting both of them, which puts Raina in a bad spot as Jinny was not supposed to be there.



    I like how the case ended up, although I pretty much knew that Jinny would end up doing what she did. She totally deserved to do so and I hope she does not get in too much trouble for it. I especially loved the bar scene in the which Ray shows up and starts shooting the place up. The directing in that scene was wonderful and I enjoyed all the cut-shots back and forth. The only thing I never figured out was who killed Gary, although I assume that it was the U.S. Marshall because of what she does later on.



    Jinny has informed her father about the ballistics match on the gun and that the new captain has placed her on desk duty because the case now involves the death of her brother. Neither she nor her father are having any part of it. Jinny tells him that she does not want him to help her, that she will get the man on her own. Jinny tells the team that she wants a call so she can be there when they bring Ray Sanchez down but does not want Magda to know, but she does anyway. Eventually, Raina figures out where they are and calls Jinny. She then confronts Ray about how she knows what it feels like to lose a brother like he did because he killed hers. As he reaches for his gun, she shoots him and kills him. John Sr. tells her that he is so proud of her and she says she did what she had to do. Jinny tells her therapist that she is finally able to move on with her life.



    I was thrilled to see Jinny finally finding some closure in her life. I think now that she has gotten rid of the man who killed her brother, she will finally move on with her life as she said. It’s clear that it is still tough on her without Jack around, but as she said, she did tell him to leave and he felt it was the right thing to do. I was also glad to see Jinny’s father congratulate her for what she did. I think it was something that she needed to move on as well.



    Kate makes a surprise appearance at work and finds that her office has been completely taken over by the new captain. She reveals to C.D. that she still does not know if she wants to come back to the division because she does not know if she can physically handle the work load, plus the facts that she’ll probably never make chief and that Louis told her he doesn’t want her to go back. However, she loves her job and it’ll be hard for her to leave it. Raina soon comes to her to get some help in solving the case because she knows that Kate still knows what she is doing and can help solve this case better than anyone. Kate tells Louis that she is only doing this to make sure that Jinny’s brother’s killer is put behind bars. Kate gets a visit from her daughter who tells her that her new grandchild is going to be a girl and that she has always been proud of her mother. After Kate finds out that Spivey is planning on asking for Jinny to be terminated, she decides that she is not going to retire.

    I think it was evident that Kate would end up going back to work, especially since I know she is going to be there next season. However, I was so thrilled that someone finally told Spivey where to shove his bonsai tree. It is more than clear that Jinny means a lot to Kate, especially since she threw away the paper Spivey had to terminate her with. I’m sure Louis is not going to be so thrilled with her decision, but it is hers and I think she has made the right choice.



    Raina gets a surprise visit from Johnny Sloane, the baseball player who did not pay the child support on his three children. He informs her that he is falling for her and that he has caught up on all his payments, plus he is playing pro baseball again. She refuses to go out with him, but he will not take no for an answer. After she refuses his Cartier watch, he secretly meets with her mother and she tells him how to win her over. Raina eventually goes on a date with him.



    I am so glad to finally see Raina get to have a real relationship on this show. I think it was sweet that he decides to go to one of her mothers to get permission to date her and find a way to win her over. I wish we could have seen that scene instead of just hearing about it. Hopefully, this relationship will turn out for the best with her and not end up like the other one she has in season 2.



    C.D. and Nate finally discuss their relationship over lunch. Nate says that when anything happens, she is the first person that he wants to call. C.D. says that she is scared to start a relationship with him because she does not want to lose their partnership. She says that she cannot imagine her life without him, though. After the case is over, the two agree to finally go out on a dinner date. Before she goes, she finds out that the U.S. Marshall who was with the three escapees injected Gina with medication at the hospital and killed her. C.D. goes to confront her and she shoots her after C.D. shoots first.



    Well, I was thrilled to know that C.D. and Nate finally decided to admit what we have all known for about 2 seasons. However, since I know that Tracey Needham leaves the series after this episode (although she is mentioned in the fourth season premiere), I feel like they waited too long. I would actually like to have seen them go out and a real date or two before they made C.D. leave Nate. Especially, since John Hamm totally sucks in season 4 without her there. At least, C.D. killed the U.S. Marshall whom I assume killed Gary along with Gina just so she could get back at them for shooting her partner. I felt sorry for C.D. because she felt like she had a connection with Elizabeth since she had also lost a partner in the line of fire. I will miss Tracey Needham as C.D. on the series.



    Magda finally comes to the realization that her relationship with Jonah is all wrong. She tells him that she does not feel good about herself anymore and she has to do the right thing. She gives him back the key he gave her and walks out, but looks as if she might cry.



    Boy, was I thrilled to see Magda finally come to her senses and realize that Jonah was all wrong for her. It was obvious that Jonah did not see it coming at all and I despised the fact that he kept trying to woo her back. Also, this was the last appearance of Jose Yenque as Gabe. For reasons I have still yet to discover, he was replaced by Yancey Arias in season 4. I mean it’s not like we couldn’t tell it or anything. Still, I am glad that she went back to Gabe and hopefully Jonah, although he is a fine looking man, is gone for good.



    This entire episode was one of the finest in the series history. It easily found a way to mesh all the storylines together, without feeling like any of them were being rushed. This along with the previous episode which connects to this one, were some of the best acted, written and directed of the entire series.
