Should Have Been Better, But At Least Stoic 'Jack' Shows Some Emotion At End
17 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

This "crossover" episode completes the story of "Terry Wicker," a bad man who has killed many and abducted his son twice! The first part was on CSI and is an early episode in Season Eight.

This was the first "Without A Trace" episode I've seen since watching the first season on DVD. I don't find the principal characters in this show to be people you get to care about. They are too detached, like their leader "Jack Malone." However, at the very ending of this episode, "Jack" shows a little emotion and a caring heart. I'm sure his character has that but too often, as in this episode and the one that preceded it on CSI, he seems way to distant. It looks like he and "Gil" could be good friends if they worked together, but this was a one-shot deal. It has to be since Petersen is through with CSI.

Speaking of emotions, I felt this "crossover" story should have been more than what it was. A few reviewers of the first-part on CSI seem to have the same opinion. A story of a guy who killing many people and has thing weird relationship with his small boy, should have been fascinating.....but it wasn't.

As mentioned, the only really excellent part was the last minute when it makes you feel sorry for law enforcement people, who see so much death and sorrow.
