Did You Know?


[about Chet's missing son]
Vivian: What happened the last time Chet came in here?
Jack Malone: I told you, nothing.
Vivian: Okay. Now, tell me the truth.
Jack Malone: Vivian, back off.
Vivian: Did you just tell me to back off?
Jack Malone: Yeah, back off.
Vivian: Jack! This is not your personal crusade. I've spent just as much time on this case as you have, and whatever happened between you and Chet is relevant to this investigation. It is not a private moment. You need to share it with the rest of the team, which includes me.

In my top 5 of the best episodes of television drama EVER
18 April 2013 | by Hannah955See all my reviews

Periodically I see this episode on reruns of "Without a Trace" on ION TV and even though I know how it turns out, I watch it intently every time because it is TV drama at its finest. Charles S. Dutton is PITCH PERFECT as a father whose son went missing 5 years earlier on a camping trip, who cannot give up hope and is obsessed with finding his son. His desperation and determination show on his face in every scene, even without words. His marriage has fallen apart, he and his wife are divorced, and he resents her because he thinks she has moved on, while he cannot. He even loses his job because he can't focus on anything but finding his son.

This one will have you bawling tears at the end. I won't say whether they're tears of joy, or tears of heartbreak. But however it ends, it seems like the right ending.
