PARTNERS Chris getting shot felt like it played out quite realistically. Mary Beth ripping off an item of clothing to pack the wound. It all happened quite quickly, which is the point. I was concerned that an episode with one of the main characters in the hospital wouldn't work, but really enjoyed what it did to the characters. Particularly it was interesting to see Mary Beth insecure when Chris was working on the case from her hospital bed. It was also good to see Mary Beth pushed into a position with her replacement partner where she was forced to be the energetic one that pushes. Her chemistry with Chris is so good it was refreshing to see her working with this man she didn't get on with. His redemption towards the end of the episode was a nice moment too. The small little moment of Mary Beth observing him shaking as he loaded his gun felt like I understood the character so much better, even though we didn't dwell on his motives or thoughts. Dick O'Neill was back for his third episode as Charlie Cagney. Flawed characters can be frustrating to watch, and that's the case for me too. But it's a good kind of frustration as I was believing the character.
