Goren and Eames investigate after a bridesmaid, Megan, is found dead in the cheap motel room she had been sharing with Alice, another bridesmaid at their friend Tory's wedding. The two detectives start with investigating Pete and Jayson, the two guys the women had met at Brasserie Nylorac, but soon realize that Alice's story has a lot of holes in it, and the presence of cigar smoke around Megan, a young woman who hated smoking, leads Goren and Eames to suspect that the killer had a personal connection to Megan. Their investigation soon leads them to a cab driver named Tim Rainey, whom they soon realize is an actor preparing for the ultimate role. Written by Anonymous

you need to remember your authentic emotions
20 September 2017 | by Mrpalli77See all my reviews

A two-bit actor (Dasmond Harrington) has to play the serial killer character in a movie. Or, at least, he had to, because the project felt through due to financial matters. Anyway he's too bounded to this character, it reminds him something related to the past. His mother was killed when he was a child and she was a promiscuous woman used to make men mad. The poor victims of his rage are two poor girls in their late '20 came to the Big Apple just to celebrate a bridal shower and then trapped because of the snow.

This episode shows how a married man, devoted to his family, could turn into a criminal just to impersonate someone. In some way, he resembles Travis Bickle in "Taxi Driver", he's got the same hate hidden inside him and ready to blow.
