    I very much enjoyed this particular episode. The reason why is that my daughter, Sara Solomon was in it! She played Marcia Rusk and I think she did a terrific job. I love how well this show is written and the storyline left enough to the imagination to wonder what really happened to Abby and how it was connected to Sam's past. This show has amazing stars and they also write wonderful stories for their guest stars each week. I especially liked this episode and will definately continue watching the show in the future. Now I'm hooked and want to find out more about Sam's past.moreless
  • This is a really great episode. I loved how it kept throwing tidbits about Sam in throughout the show.

    This has totally lived up to my highest expectations. There simply isn't a greater show around. No other show has the ability to leave you breathless with plot-twisting turns and believable acting! This specific episode was interesting- the way the writers threw little glimpses of Samantha's past to the viewers. I was left with questions, a good thing in this case, that will keep me guessing 'till the next episode. Samantha & Elena's interview was particulary noteworthy. Sam just blew up at the guy. I think it has something to do with her past and also with why she joined the FBI Missing Persons Unit. Did she kill her dad to save her mom?? Don't know, BUT you can bet that I'll keep watching 'till I get some answers!moreless
  • huh??

    This girl named abby dissapears. She was an artist who apparently took pictures of poeple and painted them. people didn't like that. It turned out that six years earlier her and a couple friends wittnessed this gorl fall off a bridge. Sbby went to go visit her dad to see the other guy who was on the bridge. I don't reallg get what happened in the end. Did she commit suicide, or was she killed. I know I'm supose to form my own conclusion bbut I really don't know. And Sam's flashback, did she kill someone? I can't wait to see what happens next.moreless
