    great show! didnt see that coming. i hate the outcome but love the surprise.

    hope the dad gets charged with murder somehow. the after meeting was also good to see, something you normally dont

    wonder why raf is leaving....or maybe he wont?

    I had just about given up on this show. I was surprised when I saw it in my NPL today.

    I sure didn't expect to see that outcome. I figured it would be business as usual where the girl comes to her senses and drops the gun.

    I think Raf is gone. He explained his reasoning at the end. Of course, I guess he could change his mind.
    ( I don't care to do the legwork needed to find out if the actor is leaving the show. :p )

    Don't know if it's the same in Canada, but here that would be a pretty clear case of felony murder...

    i think it would have been nice if they tossed in a line saying the DA will be charging him...would have rounded out the show nicely!

    when ed got home what did the son ask him, i couldnt get it even after rewinding

    you should keep abreast of the 2012 sticky at the top of the page :)

    i typically dont like the shows that show the 'ending' at the start, i think southland does the same thing, but thankfully with my oldtimers disease kicking in i forget until it shows then it's like ya, i saw that before

    That's the thing that's always fascinated me about this show...it has all the trappings of a macho, let's kill the bad guys cop drama, but it's written like a chick-flick. (And I mean that in a good way.)

    So while a typical show would have ended by showing the legal consequences of the bad guy's actions, all this show cares about is the emotional consequences for the team.

    I think that, more than anything, is what sets it apart from every other cop show out there...and makes it worth watching.
