Great Episode goes to waste with a terrible finish
17 January 2013 | by (Iran) – See all my reviews

They finally realized they should do it and they did it! Finally we saw a multi-episode side story other than RJ that was much more catchy than the single episode dull stories...very nice episode overall! it established great communications between characters and developed an open story about Brenda which can be used later on the show. The part with Lisbon and Brenda and Ardiles reminds me of a much softer version of the relationships in "the Wire". And we actually watched good solid police procedural work by the team; not like somewhat longsome interrogations in the guess-who-done-it episodes. But the more we get close to the end of the episode the more hasty and careless the interactions became. The naive simplifications or to better put it, avoiding complications in the last 10 minutes was a sign an imminent bad finish. What harm would it do if the episode could run for 10 minutes extra or even were extended to another episode? the last 10 minutes was like snapshots of incidents. I hated to see that a very good episode went to waste with hasty and weak conclusion.
