Episode Summary

Carrie receives a phone call at the station from a man saying that he will kill someone in 16 minutes. She assumes it to be another prank the team is playing on her until he admits to killing someone the day before in New Jersey. Carrie is able to determine the location from background noise but the team arrives too late as a second man is killed.
This begins a back and forth battle of wills between the two while the team rushes to find a connection between the two dead men. In the meantime, Carrie plays the sniper's game in the hopes of avoiding further deaths.moreless

  • Excellent episode

    This was probably one of the most compelling episodes of Unforgettable to date. I'm not going to sum up the episode since the previous person did it so well... But what I am going to say is that the new character (the medical examiner) seems like a really interesting and compelling character. Her and Carrie really work well together, and I'm hoping she'll help Carrie to piece together her sister's murder.

    Carrie's nemesis in this episode is also really great. He's intelligent, and he seems to understand that Carrie isn't just a normal cop. I really like where this is heading.moreless
  • A Serial Killer and a New Cast Member

    This was a pretty solid episode. A serial killer takes Carrie head on, challenging her to keep up with him. His first two murders seem unconnected, but when the third victim survives, Carrie figures out that her husband was the intended target. Upon ensuring his safety, Al and Carrie discover that there was indeed a connection between the three men, one that dates back to their youth and the indiscretions they committed at the time.

    I liked the twist at the end (no spoilers here!) and I'm sure some of this will be revisited down the road.

    Jane Curtin is an interesting add to the cast. She is certainly a fine actress and I think her character will be a good fit, especially since she and Carrie have so much in common personality wise.moreless

      Joanne Webster: What is it? Going to ask? You have to ask? Or you're asking?
      Al: Carrie...
      Carrie: This is a crime scene.
      Joanne Webster: What tipped you off? Was it the gaping wound in the parietal section of his skull? Cause' that's what clued me in.

    • Al: So, according to the cop covering the switchboard, this guy asked for you by name.
      Carrie: There was nothing personal to me on that call. I mean, I was quoted on a case in the Post last week, maybe he got my name from there.
      Al: Either way, we should do some due diligence on your past cases, just to make sure.
      Roe: How come I never get my name in the paper?
      Carrie: Well you gotta have something smart to say!
      Roe: Huh? (laughs) I think it's the red hair. I'm thinking about dyeing mine a light pink, maybe a blond.

    • Joanne Webster: (arriving at Al's office) Nice digs.
      Al: Ah, thank you. Not much, but we call it the Squad Room.
      Joanne Webster: You should see where they have me.
      Al: You guys still over at Staten, right?
      Joanne Webster: If by still you mean after 87 years, yeah. I swear I have John Wilkes Booth in a freezer over there!

    • Joanne: Apparently lamination and winning baseball is yet to hit this borough.

      Joanne is taking a shot at the New York Mets, who play their home games at Citi Field in the borough of Queens. Although the teams has had success in the past, including World Series Championships in 1969 and 1986, they are coming off three consecutive losing seasons and have made the playoffs only once (2006) in the last 11 seasons.

    • Al: Do you think you can estimate the entry angle of the bullet?
      Joanne: Can Jeter turn two?
      Al: Not as fast as he used to.

      Joanne is referring to long-time New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter. He is the Yankees' captain and has played his entire 17-year career with the team. At age 37, many feel that he has lost a step or two from when he was in his prime.

    • Roe: The podiatrist in the study with nail clippers.
      Roe is referring to the c board game Clue. The game, which has been around since 1948, is for 3-6 players and revolves around solving a murder by determining not only the murderer, but also the room in which the murder took place and the weapon used.
