3. “maybe you’re the one thats insecure.” -Gail Peck to Charlie Davis

4. “Wait, so your full name is Bear With The Strength Of God Epstein?” -Chris Diaz

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:

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!
