Storyline

Part 1 of 2: The murder of a crooked cop puts Detectives Goren and Eames on the trail of an obsessively clean doctor whose previous girlfriends all seem to be afflicted with a "zoonotic" disease -- or a virus found only in animals. Their probe also points to a preening veterinarian as well as a looming psychological component that is crucial to putting a bulletproof case together. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Andrew McCarthy was originally cast in the role of Dr. Roger Stern, but he stormed off set, complaining that Vincent D'Onofrio was constantly criticizing his acting during the rehearsals. As a result, James Urbaniak was a last-minute recast. See more »

Goofs

Dr. Borman is shown scrubbing up for a surgery, he then scratches himself and then puts his scrubs on. This would possibly lead to infections in his animal patients. He should have had his scrubs on before he scrubbed up for surgery and should never have scratched himself after. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Scott Borman: [stripping off clothes in operating area] We're all mammals in here... Right, ladies?
Nurse: Whatever you say, doctor.

Stunning Performance by James Urbaniak
8 November 2014 | by (London) – See all my reviews

In an episode that will both shock and delight, James Urbaniak gives the performance of a lifetime. He creates a character you will never forget and dominates every scene in which he appears. It is pure magic to watch him work and with the support of the rest of the excellent cast, it is something that was an Emmy worthy guest appearance. Never has a villain been more creepy, insidious, and frightening in the Criminal Intent series. The smile he creates for this character will make your skin crawl. The final scenes are riveting and should be part of any history of episodic television. Even Eames and Goren seem absolutely repulsed by this man. The victims of his perversion also give fine performances as he and his partner's sad victims. Do not miss this very special episode. The work of James Urbaniak will haunt you for all time.
