The killer was the MVP of this episode
20 July 2016 | by (Midwest, United States) – See all my reviews

This review won't contain any real spoilers. I just watched this "Hitchhiker" episode of Cold Case for the very first time. And it was pretty good.

I actually think the person who turned out to be the killer was the MVP (or the star) of the entire episode. If you actually pay attention to the killer's backstory and study him as a person, you can almost feel some kind of "pity" for the bastard. He's definitely a "damaged" guy. It's not like he had a terrible childhood or anything like that. But by the time he became a teenager and into adulthood, you can see he had major flaws as a person and was a bad decision maker. He was the kind of guy who had a lot of dreams and ambitions but was TERRIBLE at trying to make those dreams come true. He was an ambitious screw up. As one character states, he's not very good at the things that he wants to be good at.

So yeah, I kinda felt sorry for the killer, especially watching the last 7 or 8 minutes of the episode. But then, I remembered what he did (committing an inexcusable murder) and was brought back to reality and thought to myself there was NO EXCUSE for what he did, especially who he did it to and what that person was supposed to mean to him. The killer was definitely a complex character. And kudos to the actor who played the killer. He did a wonderful job. It makes you remember that not all people who kill are "pure evil". But he still DESERVES a long prison sentence for this crime. Very good episode. I give it an 8.8 out of 10.
