A man with an engagement ring turns up dead on the Brooklyn Bridge--but more than one woman could be the prospective fiancée. And a socialite dies in a penthouse with serious bruises and another man's blood on her body, and LSD in her system. Written by
Did You Know?
Despite Peyton being first introduced in Mac's bed, their romance doesn't take over the cases and it's subtly depicted in the episode. According to a make up artist and based on the close ups of Melina Kanakaredes, looks like the soft powder she has regularly been using in her eyes has changed to liquid eyeliner. Both cases seem to be disconnected, and Danny and Hawkes don't have any small moment with the rest of the team. Looks like they were shot at different locations and/or dates. Apparently, Mac and Peyton first met when she first worked at the M.E.'s office and they started dating while she was at Columbia. She's recently joined back the M.E's office, most likely over the summer, so Mac has gotten into a relationship for some time now and the team doesn't seem to know about it. It's not clear if Mac's private condition is motivating it or if there's deeper uncomfortable reasons. But it makes sense that he would get into something serious with someone he has known for a while and not someone random. It is really cute touch of normalcy the lightheartedness with wich Lindsay and Stella tease Flack on the bridge. He seems happy and he probably needs to hear that despite the tragic explosion he was involved in and the scars he bears women still find him attractive. Peyton tries hard to make Mac happy with her cheerfulness and optimism and Mac tries to make her happy showing no emotional trauma after the explosion in 2x24 Charge of this Post. Both of them behave more relaxed when they aren't around each other. For example, when Mac kisses Peyton in a public sphere, he seems to be reassuring her as much as he is reassuring him. And when he holds her hand, it feels more like a don't go hand catch than a stay here hand catch. They seem to work a tad too hard for it to naturally work. Even though Flack doesn't suffer from the severe injuries he suffered in 2x24 Charge of this post, there is some kind of continuation to them. See more
