Cringe through the whole thing
20 June 2017 | by MysteryRidahSee all my reviews

Can i say this right off the bat, that Christine Whitney and Mac Taylor have no chemistry at all. And sadly she's in about 7 more episodes, ugh. I can't stand them together, she sounds like she is force to sound convincing , and Mac, seems force to smile. Throughout out this whole episode i was cringing and almost stopped watching it. They don't make a great couple, even Mac's wife who died 9/11 doesn't fit good with him. The best relationship imo was with Peyton Driscoll. Not even sure why they got rid of her.

Sela Ward performance was cringe as well. She doesn't sound convincing when crying, it sounds fake and she looks phony. Sela Ward is a very attractive woman, and at times her performance is alright, but sometimes its hard to watch. Most of the time she is carrying around that stupid notepad, she behaves nothing like a cop, more like a school guidance counselor and looks like one as well.

Besides that, the whole had its highlights, but for the most part it was boring, awful to watch, bad acting, stupid flashbacks, never again.
