Last night was a really excellent character piece for Danno and Steve. I felt the plot was pretty thin in both storylines, but the character interaction more than made up for it. When the NY cops didn't stop for Danno, I immediately made the 9/11 connection even before they showed the smoke — maybe because I'd just finished watching last night's Bones,
which centered on the unidentified remains of a homeless Gulf War vet who'd helped rescue people at the Pentagon, so 9/11 was already on my mind.
But yeah, good episode.
