Remembrance of Things Past

It's terrible to lose a loved one. Even more terrible is when that loved one's last phone call to you is telling you that they are about to die. And there's nothing you can do about it.

In this episode, a man who was once a serial killer has developed Alzheimer's. His son, trying to help his father heal, began trying to appease the psycho part of his father by bringing him victims to kill. Rossi (Joe Mantegna) recognized the way the similarities between this case and an unsolved case he worked years before.

Why it's disturbing:

It's enough of a blow to a family to lose someone they love but to be talking to that loved one, helpless, knowing that there's nothing you can do to save them... that's no something that will ever be forgotten or will ever go away.

Middle Man

A group of college boys are on a killing spree. They kidnap strippers, make them their personal entertainment for a few days and then kill them in a corn field, but not before they've made the girl think they were letting her go.

The team ultimately discover that the sheriff's son is part of the group that is killing those women. The sheriff had raised his son with such a firm bullying hand that he essentially drove his son to seek the camaraderie of the psychopath who orchestrated all the crimes.

Why it's disturbing:

Beyond the tortures and murders, it's disturbing to think that what you think is good, solid parenting may actually be pushing children into terrible things. It's one of the worst fears a parent can have.

25 to Life

Morgan (Shemar Moore) gives a good recommendation for a parolee who was convicted of murdering his wife and daughter, who he'd always claimed he was innocent of. But only days after being released, he is a suspect in another killing. Morgan doubts his own abilities. Ultimately, though, the man is exonerated for the murders of his wife and daughter.

Why it's disturbing:

Over the last few years, there have been all sorts of news related to prisoners who have spent decades in prison... only to find out they really were not guilty, mostly by way of DNA evidence that hadn't been available at the time of their trials. It's scary to think that it could happen to anyone in the wrong place at the wrong time.
