Can Guilt Drive People To Murder?
7 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This begins with a dramatic "suicide club" scene in which four young people are in a car, which they purposely leave on nearby railroad tracks, waiting for the 9 p.m. train to come by and smash into them. That's exactly what happens with all four killed, of course. One of them, however, wasn't really part of the club. This "suicide" was news to him! Can you imagine his horror? It turns out he - "Carmine" - got lured into the car ride by someone else who planned to have him killed in this manner.....but who?

When it's all said-and-done, this story is really one about guilt. That guilt comes about for not speaking out against injustice, for lying to protect evil people. In this case, it's a demanding company and a brutal boss, out to harass and torment a selected employee or two. Part of that is because of an office romance gone bad. The main thing it involves is a company "yes man" who finally snaps and is ready to kill himself over all of his misdeeds of going along with evil people to save his job. He also tries to atone in a very twisted way. Fortunately, Goren and Eames figure things out before he kills himself and the whole case is lost, too.

I wonder how many viewers can relate to this episode, at least on a lesser basis? I used to know several employees who lied regularly for a corrupt boss I once had. For the honest employees, it can be rough.

This is another unpleasant-but-interesting story that keeps you guessing on exactly who-did-what.
