Cho's character was stroking her face and telling her he wanted to take care of her. He was mega-creepy there, given that he's just pistol-whipped her and was tying her up in the back seat of his cruiser while he did it. Umm... pistol-whipped a fellow officer, tied her up in the back seat of his cruiser, aided and abetted a suspect in multiple homicides. It couldn't have been much clearer. Evidently Phillip Iscove. He conceived of the series initially, and since the other three credited co-creators (Kurtzman, Orci, and Wiseman) are all prominent, busy people, I figure Iscove is the point man on this show. Shows that are treated badly by their networks are unlikely to last anywhere near four years. Four years is a very respectable run for any network show, especially a genre show.
