Will he get over it?
3 June 2007 | by (muenster, germany) – See all my reviews

(Please don't read this if you haven't seen this episode yet. I don't think it's possible to say much about it without giving away crucial plot details, including the ending. I'll also compare it to another episode from this series, so that one will be spoiled as well. Better only read this if you know the complete series.)

Two police officers are called to a robbery in a supermarket. DeSoto is shot, but Duncan Moore isn't injured. He blames himself for his partner's death. But it seems that both he and DeSoto were off guard because they thought the robber had already gone, and that it might as well have been Duncan who was hit. He has himself moved to traffic patrol. His new partner, a young woman, tries to cheer him up and to give him new motivation. Will Duncan be able to get over what has happened?

I think this story is too similar to 'No Day at the Beach' (#1.14). In that episode a soldier's ghost saves his comrades, and in this one the ghost of a young police officer saves a colleague from his depression (and perhaps even from suicide).

But apart from that (lack of originality) the story is not bad, and I think the acting is good, so this episode still deserves seven points in my opinion.
