Truthfully, I was expecting a lot more out of this television movie. The script at times was lacking, and the story seemed to go on and on, at times, not making any sense. Though it was widely advertised that all the detectives would regroup, this movie was largely a front to get Pembleton and Bayliss together. In most of their scenes together, they shine. When they first encounter each other on the steps of the station house after two years of separation, it was touching. However, some of your other favorite characters are not shown as prominently. Melissa Leo's Kay Howard has little more than a few sentences in the entire movie and Callie Thorne's and Michael Michelle's characters are given absolutely nothing to do. Megan Russert, (Isabella Hoffmann), rather than do actual police work is given the job of sitting around the hospital with Gee's family. Once again, just a front to reunite Bayliss and Pembleton who take up the majority of the movie.

The movie was also used in part to tie up a few loose ends. For example, the relationship between Gee and MGee, his son. In the movie, MGee has turned in his FBI badge to become a Baltimore uniform, perhaps out of respect and devotion to his father.

Another lose end is the Ryland shooting that took place at the end of season 7. I won't give away how it ends, but the results become apparent throughout the movie as to who the culprit is.

If you were a devoted fan of "Homicide" then i would recommend that you watch this, but only if you know a lot about the series since there are a lot of flashbacks that may confuse viewers who were not as devoted.
