Another clue to retire
11 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Criminal Intent made several episodes with Chris Noth where hints are given that he's ready to call it quits with the NYPD. Given his time on Law And Order prime and a made for TV film showing his Staten Island exile years and now his time with Major Case, he's coming closer and closer to packing it in.

A young police academy trainee is killed and the hunt is on for a girl he's been dating. Brooke Tansley is shown to be one of those amoral persons not unlike Bobby Goren's nemesis Nicole Wallace. The whole part of her story is just locating her. She's experienced and the mere fact that Telly Leung suspects something is not quite right got him killed. Tansley is really evil, note the scene where she's finally caught.

While this is going on Noth gets involved with a woman who lived in the apartment next door. The next date she stands him up and he finds when comes home she's jumped from their apartment roof.

One thing about Detective Mike Logan, he has one strong sense of justice. But circumstances being what they are there is no justice for Kelli Williams. It disturbs Logan no end and Chris Noth has to be taken off the assigned case. Kathryn Erbe is around to finish things up there.

Chris Noth got a lot out of the Mike Logan character over the years and this episode is a great example.
