A dance mom, Denise, is murdered, and soon Jane and Maura are reliving their ballet past. As it turns out, Denise was in Witness Protection, and her death was caused by her ex-husband coming after their daughter, Dakota. The twist was interesting, although it is a little weird that Denise and Dakota, Denise’s sister, and Dakota’s biological father were all in Witsec. The sister being in it seemed like a little much, but having the dad in it made sense. He conned his way in, claiming to testify on his former workers in the drug ring, but his plan was to put off being in prison so he could kidnap Dakota. Other than that, the case was interesting and well thought out. What did you think of it?
Korsak was uninvolved in the case because Josh, his stepson, or former stepson, was arrested for shooting a cop. The fact that Josh appears after having mentioned him in previous storylines was a nice follow through on the writers’ part. First there was the episode where viewers met Korsak’s ex-wife Melody and learned about Josh, and then the writers provided a Josh episode. This storyline allowed viewers to see a more parental side of Korsak, although he is protective of Jane. The tough kid attitude Josh portrayed was a typical response in those situations, but it worked well for the episode. Korsak learned how angry Josh was about the divorce, and viewers got to see how much Korsak tried to be in Josh’s life after the divorce.
There was a moment where it looked like the writers were going to have a deus ex machina. When Josh finally comes clean, there is a moment of realization that the only way to prove Josh’s innocence was to have the officer, Kincaid, wake up from the coma to tell what happened. Thankfully, the writers had Maura verify Josh’s story through evidence. Kincaid did finally wake up, but now Josh’s fate did not solely rest about Kincaid’s testimony. Josh still gets charged with breaking and entering, so he does not magically get away scot-free.
