Nothing Like Old Wounds to Surface ***1/2
13 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title line to this episode is most appropriate. Erin's ex-husband, a handsome hulk, reappears and will be opposite his ex-wife in a case. Furthermore, Frank, his ex-father-in-law, will be called to testify. I just love the way that Frank is able to squash that part. It always seems to be it's not what you know but whom you know.

At first, it looked like a serial killer was on the loose with the shooting of 2 guys in private areas. Of course, a link is found where the victims had been exonerated on a technicality from a rape accusation. Leave it to those technicalities. In the meantime, the victim is emotionally scarred and wants death for herself.

The other segment was most poignant. The winner of the Commissioner for a Day Award is a bitter teen whose mother was murdered. Wait until you see who had chosen him as the winner and not only takes an interest in the young man, but who has the case reopened as well with startling results.

Wait until you see who the killer was of the exonerated perpetrators. The official police reaction to this is customary but so true to life.
