I was incredibly pleased with the 2-part opener. Great appearances by Paget Brewster, a subdued Adam Baldwin, Ron Rifkin, and Peter Jacobson. It really did feel 'epic' somehow - like a mini movie. I didn't think that Dean Winters as Brian Cassidy could keep being interesting, but he was too. I had no idea how Cragen was going to get out of all of that unscathed without the episode becoming convoluted, but everything all made sense in the end. The only thing I'm really not too keen on is Amara and his wife. It just seems like a carbon copy of the Stabler situation with less kids. Why can't a character on a crime drama be in a happy marriage? Here is some info on 14x03 . Looks like some Shades of Greyish stuff is going to be going on... and Adam Baldwin might be sticking around for awhile longer.
