Advertisements I'll be interested to see what people thought of this episode. It was very much a departure from the rest of the series. Personally, I'm kind of torn. In a way, I think it was a great episode of TV. We got to know the characters better and that character development has been sorely lacking in this show. On the other hand, this was episode 11 out of 13 of a murder mystery show. The search for Rosie's killer should be front and center at this point, and the noose should be tightening on someone. Instead, we got an entire episode that had absolutely nothing to do with the overarching mystery. Seems to me that this episode should have happened about 4th or 5th in the season, and then I wouldn't have had a problem with the timing of them taking a complete departure from the story. Other plot-specific complaints: -Are these people really detectives? If so, why don't they act like it? When they unlocked Jack's phone and saw the text saying that the mysterious person would be parked on some certain street corner at 7 am, why didn't they immediately drive to that location and start canvassing, see if any local businesses might have security cameras that would capture the street corner, etc.? Instead, they just sit in their car and smoke. -Linden is supposedly a lead homicide detective in a fairly large American city. Even if she doesn't own a car of her own, does she not have a car available for her use? Why did Holder have to spend the whole day playing chauffeur? -Holder is a recovering meth addict. His previous supervisor was aware of this. Doesn't seem like the type of person you'd want on the police force, let alone being promoted to homicide detective. -When will someone finally use an umbrella and stop opening their phones in a torrential downpour? Drives me nuts. Maybe rain is such a fact of life in Seattle that people don't pay any attention to it, but for those of us who actually hurry when we have to run through the rain, or try to protect ourselves from getting soaked, it's completely distracting to see these people just nonchalantly wandering through the rain and then getting into their cars without appearing to be wet at all. I'm sure there are more things to complain about, but I'll leave some of them for the rest of you.
