An ATF agent is found in her home, an apparent victim of suicide. Don, having been involved with her, asks Charlie to run algorithms to determine if she was likely suicidal. After determining that she had much to live for, Charlie and Don take the investigation from the ATF and decide to hunt down likely killers. A local Ayrian bike gang proves a useful lead and Don finally discovers (with the help of the usual CalSci graduates) that the agent's death was really an inside job. Written by andrewxc

Utterly ridiculous...
3 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This series, like most TV Crime shows, strains credulity at times. However, this episode is the worst I have ever seen.

An ATF agent is dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. FBI has what they believe may be a recording of the shot. So Charlie wants to recreate the scene and try to match the sound signature. How to do this? By having an agent lie on the bed and fire a blank at the ceiling! Then Charlie says the sound signatures don't match, and they start talking about were the drapes drawn, was something removed from the room, etc. How about the fact that a blank fired at the ceiling won't sound ANYTHING LIKE a live round fired with the muzzle of the gun pressed against a human head? DUH!

There are all sorts of other plot elements requiring complete suspension of disbelief. The only interesting thing about this episode from 2006 is that the ATF agents in it were involved in an operation that bears an eerie resemblance to the treasonous real-life Operation Fast & Furious of 2009-2009. Life imitates art...
