Lady Heather Returns "Unleashed" on CSI

at . Comments

The return of Lady Heather made "Unleashed" a great CSI episode full of awesome character insight and interaction that played nicely with the week's two cases. 

I've missed Lady Heather, and I love that she has returned to the show in a different role. She's no longer a dominatrix, but a psychiatrist specializing in sex therapy.

The career change was appropriate, but even as Dr. Kessler, Lady Heather remained the same strong, intelligent, and observant character she had always been.

Langston and Lady Heather

The interaction between Sara and Lady Heather was amazing. The body language and tone imparted by both women spoke volumes about their feelings regarding each other.

Clearly, Sara has the bigger issues, but I'm sure Lady Heather has her own axe to grind with the CSI.

Ray and Lady Heather conjured some interesting insights into his character. Not much new information was given, but it was nice to have an official statement that the choice for Ray will come down to fighting what he sees as his own inner nature.

We'll have to see how it all plays out. I do hope his confiding in Lady Heather will mean we get to see more of her in up coming episodes.

Nick had his own emotional trials to go through. I was sort of half-hoping, half-wondering if he might end up taking custody of the baby he and Doc Robbins helped to save. Obviously, that drastic step wasn't taken, but Nick took that case very seriously. I'm sure he, at least, felt vindicated that the bullies could be arrested.

The PSA regarding cyber-bullying and the importance of parental involvement toed the line of being overbearing. However, it's a pertinent issue, and sometimes shows like CSI help to place such things in the light where they belong.

This was a pretty solid episode. My complaints basically fall under personal taste and don't really bear mentioning. I look forward to further excellence in the upcoming episodes leading to the season finale.

Not sure what you watched, but this one was disappointing on several levels. Dr Lady Heather has set a world record for getting a PhD if it is legit! The "sex Therapy" on her diploma indicates it is not. Heather is another character that has been overplayed to the point of having no real use on the series. Nick and Doc Robbins were sweet and emotional about the infant. Addressing cyber-bullying is appropriate, but how much can be lawfully done? Better question might be: why do teenagers need to be so quickly connected to each other?

I'd forgotten how much I hate the Lady Heather episodes. All that psycho-babble wrapped up in mystery to make it appear she's all-knowing. What she actually says is so wrong psychologically, it takes me right out of the episode. I wish my clinical psych PhD had taken as short a time to get as Lady Heather's.

Usually, when people say they are doing something for the good of others, they are doing something for themselves.

Ray

Dr. Kessler: I can say this...The good Dr. Langston isn't going to catch Nate Haskell.
Ray: If I give in to my nature I won't catch him...I will kill him.
Dr. Kessler: Yes, you will.
Ray: What becomes of me then?
