Good...very good...but only one episode more to go...
29 May 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode has a couple interesting guests--Robert Picardo (the Doctor from "Star Trek: Voyager") and Fred Williamson (a huge blaxsploitation star from the 70s). Plus, David Arquette is back again as the guy smitten on Olive.

One of Emerson's rivals (Williamson) was killed in an accident at the dam. The team investigates this murder and learns that in addition a valuable ruby was stolen. The trail points to an evil woman--the one who is the mother of Emerson's daughter and who has hidden her from him for years. In addition, Emerson's new girlfriend is on hand to fight the evil lady. In the end, the murder is solved, the ruby found and the evil baby mama once again escapes...and Emerson ends up with an even cooler car than he already had.

The episode has A LOT taking place--even more than usual. It's all quite good, but watching it was sad as I knew there was only one more episode to go until this all too short series ended.

By the way, the Rorschach (ink blot) cards you briefly see in this episode are the real thing...not fakes made for the show.
