Interesting episode
23 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title for this episode is clever, since the guest character (and actress who portrays her) is blind and as a witness to a killing, she can identify the culprits by the sounds they made. This story works, because it uses a performer in a key role who is sightless in real life. And I would say that gives the proceedings more legitimacy. Little stuff like watching her get into the cab of the truck, slightly off balance are things that add authenticity, things a seeing actress probably would not have done.

Much of the action in the episode is routine as crime dramas go. But there's time for a few character-centered moments that are well-played. Notably, the dinner with her and Rick. When he took her glasses off during the meal to see her face better, there's a bit of a deformity in the way her eyes are shaped. What a tender, vulnerable moment to watch on a prime time television show. However, the part about her asking Rick what colors like blue and red were like does seem somewhat implausible. Surely a woman her age with her obvious intelligence (earning a doctorate) would have figured out how to perceive colors way before she had met Simon & Simon.
