Episode Summary

When a homeless woman disappears from a shelter, the team is forced to re-examine the case of twin brothers Greg and Rick Knowles. Five months earlier (in Doppelgänger), Greg Knowles had confessed to a series of brutal murders, but the team was always convinced that it was Rick who had actually performed the killings. When Greg is released from jail and exonerated of the crimes, the team has to work against the clock to prove that Rick is the guilty party and to save one twin from the other.moreless

  • Good one...

    I most say it was a story that was bothering me and this episode was really worth the wait. I loved the complex of the story - the way the took the case of last time and now build something totally new on it, opened those two brothers up more and more and showed us the angles we were not aware.

    The twist on the end was little too predictable. I most say there was something on the dialog that give it away as the "bad" twin used little different kind of phrasing from the other and sitting there and saying that he wants to but it all behind, he had the same kind of words.. Anyway, great episode.moreless
  • Great story - finally justice for an innocent twin!!

    Arriving later than never into the series, I just wanna say that I\'m loving them all and watching all the reruns for the first time. This particular episode truly appealed to me as an audience as the \"evil twin\" was incredibly smart and crafty and there were lots of twists and turns but eventually all the pieces begin to fall when the team finally realizes that there is an innocent man in prison. To prove their case turned out to be a lot harder than they expected but in this episode Jack is determined to lay down a trap. To answer the previous comment about the divorce papers that Jack was reading, it was a clue as to what type of serial killer they were dealing with.

    It was obviously clear now what the motive to the killing was which was that the \"evil twin\" brother was not able to consummate their marriage because he was gay but in his sick twisted mind, he was obsessed with his brother and that gave him the motive to kill all those women since all of them knew the brother and dated him.

    The final confrontation scene was truly \"pivotal\" or anti climatic because I was beginning to dread that there was an ugly confrontation between the twins and the \"good twin\" had finally snapped and killed his \"evil twin\" but, Jack is cautious and suspicious when he sees traces of blood leading into another direction, and yells out the word \"mouse\" - and recover the injured body of the injured \"good twin\"!! That was a great emotional tangle for me to finally get that good ending.moreless
  • 5 months after putting Greg behind bars, another woman disappears from the shelter where he used to work and the exact same shelter from where most of the women he admitted to have killed used to live. The team now tries to prove Gregs twinbrother, Rick,moreless

    Finally we have justice! But it took a lot though! The first Doppeltgänger episode was killing me, when Greg was put in jail for murders he didn't commit. When all that is said I think it was a little annoying that it had to take them SO long to expose Rick, couldn't they have done that sooner? I mean all the photoes and the juvels, wouldn't they have found them the first time if they had searched through Ricks appartment?

    Anyway, I thought it was a good episode, but I didn't quite get the part where Jack looked through Ricks divorce papers, what was that?!

    Well it only get's 6 from here!moreless
