Interesting finale tonight for this series as it gets on in years. I like how they are bringing back past storylines and characters. They've really been ramping up the action and sensationalism! And they may have generated interest back to the series for the new season. It sure was rolling along quietly this season after Catherine left. The killer: did anyone else thnk it was Sqegle? Or whatever his name was? I think it was cool they brought back Warrick's killer McKeen and that he's controlling things behind bars. I didn't think he was going to go as far as kidnap Russel's granddaughter. Though the way it was directed, you knew they were setting up the audience for something big to happen. I was expecting someone to get shot. I was hoping it wasn't going to be Hodges or his mother. So I wasn't surprised it was Eckley. I bet he survives. You can't kill him! And I was worried that Finlay was going to get hit too. Good thing she went to the lady's room. I think she saw it coming. So is Nick really quiting? Not sure that's something I believe yet. If the following season is the last, they sure are going out with a lot of changes to the cast, if Nick is out. And I wonder if Grissom will come back for an episode or not. Perhaps for the trial of McKeen next season.
