This show has found it's identity, it's purpose of what it wants to show us. And what a fantastic story, as usual the episode was flawless. Story started off with a double homicide and one survivor which Toby has a hard time reading because of how much is going on in his head. All the pieces ended up coming together which leaves me kind of shocked as the results and the writers got me again with this episode and well done creating a realism between the characters that I have a stronger bonding with. Again WELL DONE!!!
This series has really matured and seemingly in the space of a couple of episodes. Too bad NBC didn't have the patience to wait it out, but here's hoping CTV did and we can still get it in Canada next season. I am having the devil's own time trying to find out via the CTV website though...
At any rate, this episode is the best of the series so far and each character was at their best and most developed. The story was layered and complex and so, we are seeing, is Toby's life due to his "gift". The performances made me want to invest in the characters and how their lives will unfold.
This episode was ever so slightly creepy. I like the darker tone that show seems to have taken, and I really like that Detective Charlie now knows about Toby's ability to read minds. All of the excuses he was coming up with for why he was where he shouldn't be were becoming tiring and really, really contrived. But in this episode, it would not have worked without her knowing. And of course, he leads her to the son of the victims. He's bloody and hiding in the fireplace. During the ambulance ride, he's so traumatized that his mind is sending out all sort of chatter that's throwinng Toby off. He thinks at one point that Oz is talking to him, when it's really their patient. The young man's problem was fairly obvious, but we had to wait for it to unfold, but I liked the way it did, even though, as I said earlier, it was creepy. I would imagine it would have to be so for Toby, too. In the end, he tells his friend that he has doubts abouat whether he can keep doing this. A very good episode. I think this show has found its footing.
