I loved this episode because of the directorship and filming style that
was so "Frank Miller". And it was befitting because the show was about
a graphic novelist. Especially in those scenes that showed how the
crimes/murders were being committed, it was plain joy to see the
slow-mo of the blades slashing through the raindrops, and blood
splattering like red paint across TV screen. For a while there, I
actually thought the episode could've been directed by Zack Snyder
("300") but was pleasantly surprised that it was (still) directed by
none other than Edward Allen Bernero.
The episode also attempted to look at how the crime was committed through the eyes of the murderer. This was a little different from the other episodes in which most of the crimes were seen from the perspective of either the profilers or the victims or sometimes, the observers (us, audience).
I recorded this episode when it was shown again, because I had to "own" it. It is that good. The graphic-novel sequences - ala Frank Miller - are just amazing. They do not, however, over-shadow the story-line, which is also very unusual in that our villain is not a monster, in the way that most "CM" villains are. Not wanting to introduce spoilers to detract from a viewer's enjoyment of this episode, I will just say: Try to find this episode. It is not to be missed. I hope that there will be more episodes as unusual as this one. It is great to have a break from the usual - although "the usual" is always quite good. I enjoy getting into the psychology of the killers, rather than just the technical breakdown of the evidence they leave behind. An outstanding episode from an excellent show. I love both Mandy Patankin and Joe Montegna. All the characters are excellent.
