A woman from Emerson's past returns
6 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Detective Emerson Cod's latest case involves the death of the owner of the local dam and the disappearance of the huge ruby he always carried with him; it isn't a simple case as Emerson and the dam owner had a history; Emerson took the woman, Lila Robinson, he was in love with... not that it lasted; she left Emerson taking their daughter with her. When Ned wakes the dead man he names that woman as his killer! Emerson doesn't have to look too hard to find Lila as she finds him and claims to be innocent; if he is to see his daughter again he will have to find the real killer to prove her innocence.

This was another fine episode with an entertaining story which showed us more of Emerson's past. Gina Torres put in a fine performance as the devious Lila and it was nice to see Christine Adams and David Arquette return as Simone Hundin and Randy Mann. The eventual killer was a little bit of a disappointment but not enough to spoil the enjoyment of the episode; after all the murder did bring Emerson and Lila back in to contact that that was the main story of the episode.
