Review:

Please don’t hate me for saying that I think this was the absolute WORST episode of the show I’ve ever seen. Sure, they led up to this storyline, but what the heck was that? Why was it necessary to kill off Barber? Plus, Best wasn’t there to see his baby being born? Yeah Williams said she didn’t want to call him, but COME ON. Lets just hope that the next episode isn’t as horrible as this pointless one.

Review:

This episode was definitely worth watching! I was wondering when they would bring a major plot into play. Gail’s first undercover mission went well…until the end.I’m wondering if the killer is someone we know, or if someone we know will die? And can we PLEASE let this abduction get Chris and Gail back together? I’m actually sick of Gail and Collins already, which doesn’t usually happen for me. Anyway, I’m excited to see Luke come back and how that will affect McNally and Swarek. The next episode looks intense and I can’t wait to watch!

Review:

This episode was really great, as we got to see more of Oliver’s home life situation. It was great to see his wife finally starting to let him in again. I would like to see more of how Williams is dealing with not being a field officer and more flirting between Diaz and Peck. Anyway, great episode and can’t wait until next week!

Review:

I really like today’s episode.  it gives us a chance to see a different side of Epstein.  Sure he’s still lovable and nerdy in his own way, but he’s now lying to Sue. I love seeing Detective Nash!  She does a great job at doing her job while doing what’s right at the same time. Also, Peck and Diaz definitely have the set-up of getting back together. Although Peck doesn’t see it yet, Diaz certainly does! Looking forward to more Williams-behind-the-desk action…and to see how well she copes for the rest of her pregnancy. Next week with McNally’s mom looks intense!

Review:

Anna-

 

I liked this episode a lot! The first two were good, but this one had suspense, action, and mystery. This episode revolved around Dov, and I loved it.  He’s one of my top favorite characters and Gregory Smith really sold the emotions this time! As usual, the McNally/Swarek stuff was cute and I sensed some tension between Barber and Nash. Of course she wanted to help Dov! I know that Barber is only doing his job, but he may lose friends in the end if he doesn’t start believing in the ones he has. It’s about time Williams decides to give up being in the field. Uh, hello, you could be shot in the stomach! Still don’t know if I like the new guy (Collins) I really want to see Gail and Diaz together again as Travis Milne promised!
