One of the greatest episodes of the show
11 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

This episode shows clearly how dangerous and damaging unproven accusations can be.

Having the characters not speak, turning the show into a mute-piece during the first half is an inspired idea. It means the audience need to pay close attention to the show, which is something that has never been done in any CSI show. It shows they were trying to make the audience be more involved, and expressing the artistic form that words don't need to be spoken to understand actions. It's only a shame more shows don't try similar themes for their dramas, as this type of creative programming would never work in a plot-driven situational-comedy. There is also the matter of trying to decide whether the shooter in this episode is justified. (Spoilers alert)

The motivation for this shooting is a true testimony of how damaging an unfounded accusation can be, and how its effects will never fade. Evan Wescott was a elementary school teacher, who like many was friendly with his pupils. He was accused by Beverly McCord of being a predator, after he helped a little girl who had been pushed over and grazed her knee. Any parent will look at this and tell you she completely overreacted, as the child needed help, but her accusation cost him not only his job, but his reputation as well, as you can never lose the suspicion.

Do I think Evan Wescott was wronged? Yes, because 1 womans personal opinion destroyed his life. Do i think we need to learn from this? Absolutely.
