  • Very interesting episode.

    Liked Patrick's questions to the initial witnesses – it's bizarre but genius: your instinctive answers to colour and animal indicate your unconscious impressions of someone. The choice of rabbit equals who Chris was – gentle, sweet, helpless. It's a nice play on psychology – the hawk and the rabbit. Rose really was smart – make the entire group participate and it creates a pact of silence.

    I liked Lisbon reaching out to Chris' father – the two remaining kids have lost their mother and sister, the father should do everything he can.

    Patrick's sandcastle was awesome. Loved the look on the little girl's face!

    Very interesting episode – nicely complex with psychology thrown in.
