In this week's brand new episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent ... When a fragile couple lose their child in a hotel robbery, Goren and Eames race against the clock to track down the missing child.
Tonight's episode sparkled, the plot was clever and had lots of twists and turns and red herrings (false leads).
It's always fun to see how Bobby will outwit the suspects, which in this episode was the swarmy professor and his unstable wife. But what was truly delicious was watching Bobby correct the "know-it-all professor" and making him look foolish. Delightful.
It was nice to see Lynn Redgrave on screen again. She was wonderful as the doting Aunt and her role added depth to the plot. As for Bobby the full beard gives him a very manly & authorative aura; almost fatherly. And as many of you may have noticed he goes from full beard and curly hair to scruff (not completely clean shaven) and a hair cut by the end of the episode. He seems less volatile this season and much more cerebral. Frankly, I like the change.
I don't want to say too much for those vixens who still haven't watched the episode so I'll end with this - notice the wistful look Bobby makes when Lynn Redgrave is talking about her niece as being the "only child in the family" and at the end of the episode when he remarks that the little girl's father couldn't even be "original for his own daughter". Perhaps creative foreshadowing of events yet to come?
So vixens what your take on tonight's episode?
