I don't really watch Cold Case, but I happened to catch this episode, and let me say that I was pleasantly surprised at how well-done 'Best Friends' was. The actress who played Rose was amazing. It's so easy to be grating in a role like that, but she captured something so... indescribable in her portrayal... it was just, so inspiring. I hope to see her again in other things. And the poetry, the way it was directed too... I mean, top notch. I give this a 10.

As for the comments about "this whole 'don't hate me because I'm gay' thing is getting really old," I really don't think that exposing hatred and discrimination for what it is, is old, especially when people struggle still with it every single day. Discrimination is alive and well, and I applaud Cold Case for what they accomplished with this very sensitive, yet hard-hitting portrayal.
