Body of Proof Review: Who Suspects a Missing Brain?

by at . Comments

It was hard to believe that Body of Proof could ramp up more tension than last week's conclusion to the two-parter but "Mind Games" took Megan Hunt and her team to a whole new level.

It wasn't hard to believe that Megan's first case led to convicting a serial killer. She's always been an overachiever so why start out slow. And what a gruesome case it was.

Mind Games Season Finale

I didn't realize you could remove someone's entire brain through their nasal cavity. I still wish I didn't know. That is utterly disgusting but makes for a a compelling serial killer.

How many killer's mutilate their victims with a hook? It's certainly an underused weapon of choice. And, as Ethan said in one of the night's most memorable Body of Proof quotes ...

Ethan: Who suspects a missing brain? | permalink

Wilson Polley killed the women who either dumped him or turned him down. That there were only three on his list was the real surprise. He seemed like such a charmer.  Were there really only three that didn't succumb to his advances?

Speaking of charming, why do people send serial killer's fan mail? Where most of us are smart enough to run in the opposite direction, there are weirdos who want to get close to these psychopaths. There should really be some sort of watch list for these budding crazies.

The murder that reopened this case was really sad. The fact that she was killed the same way as her mother was horrible. That she was pledging some stupid sorority that drew circles on her non-existent body fat or made her run around commando for a week to get in was truly pathetic. Who would be a part of such nonsense other than bullies and girls with low self esteem? Sounds like a fun club.

But back to the case. Megan was certainly feeling the pressure. Kate automatically thought that Megan made a mistake because it had been her first case and that really got her riled up. Megan Hunt doesn't play to lose.

Her fight with Peter over Lacy was silly but predictable. Megan was already stressed and scared. She had to take it out on somebody and Peter was handy.

The one thing I missed in this episode was Curtis. I felt as though we hardly saw the big guy and I missed his humor and his giant teddy bear affection.

The moment I saw that Megan was alone in the office I knew Wilson was coming back for her. I also figured that he'd try to remove her brain while she was still alive. He had years of built up rage towards Megan so it made sense that he'd be extra cruel.

I wondered why Peter came back to look for Megan. Was he feeling guilty for being harsh with her before the party and did he think she wasn't coming because of him?

I loved the end where Megan shot Wilson and Peter threw him over the balcony. I don't blame Peter one bit. That man was evil and managed to find a way to kill even while in prison. 

As Peter's life hangs in the balance, so does the show. Body of Proof has yet to be picked up for a third season and with it's ratings I'd say it has a 50/50 shot at it. If you're a fan you might want to contact ABC and let them know you'd like to see more Body of Proof.

If it does come back, do you think Peter will survive? My hope is that he does and he and Megan grow closer but we'll have to cross our fingers and wait and see.

ok people, please clarify. Has this show been cancelled or not? I am definitely on the PLEASE DON'T CANCEL side!!!

If this show is renewed it will be on for a long run; it gets better with age. If it gets cancelled the only logical conclusion one can reach is that the victim in the season finale wasn't the only brainless character involved with the show!

Please bring back Body of Proof. It is an excellent show. My entire extended family watches this show...ages 26-53. This is by far the best that ABC offers...Please do not cancel

I am so ticked that this show is ending! When I get home from working all day i want to relax and watch this show! I loved this show. I felt it has such a great plot line to it! It showed how you could make a mistake but something good could come from it. It callenges the mind and it is witty and i love it! I am upset that ABC keeps putting these stupid sitcoms on that really fail to interest me at all, then they kick off the shows that are amazing! I am really gonna watch ABC alot less way to go!

Body of proof is one show we really enjoy. It ccmes on late and we get up very early so we have to record it .we would greatly miss the show. There are not many out there that are not all sexual or the language bad.we would be sad to see it cancelled.

Please don't cancel......RENEW, a better show than over 79% of the other shows you are now airing.......I'm not sure why it hasn't caught on.....might try another time slot. I watch very few shows, but this story I've watched indepth and I enjoyed it each week.....reconsider, might help if tv watchers could watch each week...sometimes there were weeks in between. Had to go hunting each week to see if is was on, seems to me ABC did more to hurt this show than anything else!! If you cancel will watch ABC even less!!!
