[S14E8] Out Of Nowhere
Morgan discovers that both the crushed shells and smog-eating concrete coexist at a trailer park. Such a location doesn't seem like a place someone like Jared Wallace would frequent; however, drug activity is frequent in the area, and Jared has an ecstasy charge on his record. Morgan theorizes that Dawn figured this out first, went to follow up on it, and ended up running into trouble. Day shift CSI Sean Yeager offers to drive Morgan out to the trailer park to investigate. When they call Dawn's cell phone, they hear it ringing and find it buried under some trash. However, Dawn is nowhere in sight.
[S14E8] Out of Nowhere
Dawn's car is soon found abandoned roadside in the middle of nowhere; there are no viable prints on the outside of the car. When searching the inside of the car, Morgan finds a receipt from a truck stop at 1:00 AM on the night Dawn went missing. She also finds an evidence bag with a gray t-shirt inside. The name on the evidence bag is Tyler's, and he's now the prime suspect in his mother's disappearance.
A rainy night with delicate music inside a church starts the episode. A mysterious underground tunnel and ancient fresco add to the mystery. Next thing you know, a dead body arrives. Nelson is shocked at Wilding's utterly unkempt abode. Meanwhile, Barnaby is shocked at how many baby items are needed to own a baby! Several unique camera shots and a dark grey hue creates the atmosphere. The lovely village exteriors and quirky characters are nicely familiar, but the unique charm of the Tom and Joyce seasons is noticeably missing--maybe it's the loss of all the original actors, the most recent being Jones. Michael Jayston as Reverend Gould adds the much needed depth to the episode, but it's not enough to make an impact. And an hour in, it is all just flat boring. The true motive comes out of nowhere, and it should have been part of the plot in some way as it is the only interesting bit in the story. 041b061a72
