    The elements which make "Without a Trace" a show worth watching are here. Top notch performances by the main cast as well as well written storylines. While "Closure" is a good episode and I do recommend it, I was a little turned off by the recycled plot devices. Seeing Jack trying to accept the fact that he's not the man in charge anymore is one such plot device. While Steven Weber is a good actor and I have enjoyed his work in the past, I don't like how is character is set up. All arrogant and hoping Jack screws up.moreless
