    *exactly* does no one in the Damages universe watch any of the CSI shows? ;)

    Exactly--all they had to do was get the footage from the ATM camera down on the street and zoom in on the car rear view mirror that showed the window across the street in which you could see the reflection of the killer's face clearly enough to be identified!

    Yes, it seems out of whack about the blood, etc.

    However, this is TV and, let's face it, there are numerous things that are a bit "on the edge" for this, and other series....

    I love the show...so, I'm just relaxing and going with it...even though some of it is a sometimes far fetched.

    So many twists... love this show !!! I think that Lila just kept the keys, and he had to have a new set made. Loved the end, when they were in the bath tub - and you could see Lila watching them. She's crazy! If she's not on Patty's payroll - she's just crazy.

    The crazy look on her face when she was watching them in the tub is the only clue (as far as I can remember) that she's NOT in on it and she's just a bunny-boiler.

    Let me start off by saying that very few things in this show are believable. This however is.

    Based on the way the story is going, this is not the first murder these people have been involved with. The elderly uncle character has been around the block and knows what he is doing. Simply replacing a rug and straightening up will be more than enough at this point.

    Look at it from the detective's point of view. This girl comes running out of her apartment half naked and covered in blood. Her fiance is found dead in the apartment from a head wound and there is blood everywhere. This crazy lady doesn't talk for an hour or so until her lawyer shows up, at which point she says that someone in another apartment tried to kill her. You send some uniforms over to that place to check it out and absolutely nothing is awry. Zero sign of a struggle. No body, no crime. How much time and money do you spend looking through that apartment to verify her story at this point? Would you even lift up the rug looking for blood? Probably not. Ask for surveillance tapes? Likely, but it will take a while to review those. And given how quickly Patty was able to apparently have gotten the ATM surveillance that disproved the sister's testimony, it's likely that's already been tampered with.

    I'm just saying, they're making these guys out to be professionals. Covering up a possible murder where there is no body should be a walk in the park for these guys. At this point in the story, the cops have very little reason to believe Ellen and wouldn't waste much time following the lead if there is no body and no sign of a struggle.
