Detective Robert Goren: His future? Your future! You don't plan on dying, remember? You want to be immortal, you *got* to be immortal! And not in a, a tub of nitrogen, no!

A Sad Legacy
28 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are some really strange doings in this episode, such as:

A famous old senator who dies and who, along with his daughter want to frozen (cryogenics) so they can re-unite sometime down the road; a son who is running for Senator not wanting this to happen; the son winning a quick court battle over it and then having his father's remains cremated; the father's brain apparently removed by someone for research; Goren and Eames finding out the son really isn't the son of the senator but of his mother's old bodyguard..... on and on.

Overall, it's a tale of someone who thinks more of his legacy than of human life and his family. Sad.
