The next number the machine dispenses is for Vanessa Watkins, a hard-nosed prosecuting attorney who, when Finch and Reese first meet her, has just reported her husband, Jeremy Watkins, missing from their yacht. While Vanessa has put away many a criminal over her storied career, Jeremy has let many go as a flashy and high-priced defense attorney. As her number came in after the report of him missing, they know Jeremy's presumed death is not the reason for the number, yet they don't know if Vanessa is the target or the perpetrator. They learn that the lead investigator on the case of Jeremy's death, Detective Cameron, is looking at her for her husband's murder as all evidence found thus far implicates her. Cameron's main problem?: he doesn't have a body, and thus needs Vanessa to confess to make a conviction stick, which she may or may not know. They will also learn that Cameron has a personal vendetta against her, which places a major obstacle in tracking her as she tries to elude ... Written by Huggo

Left a lot to be desired
24 October 2013 | by (San Juan Capistrano, CA) – See all my reviews

I've never commented on the show before, as it's consistently well-written, that is until this episode. The actress playing the lawyer whose husband is missing, was less than believable. Since I have seen her resume and she is a very accomplished actress, I just have to put it on the writing. I don't know why Ross now has a larger part than John some weeks, is he preparing to leave the show? That's the only reason I can conceive of why they would dilute his character. Her charisma cannot hold a candle to his, he essentially made the show what it is. Why create a duplicitous character? Please, please don't become another tired watered-down network TV show. This show was so different-for so long.
