Just as they manage to identify her as actress Carmen Kuskowski, she runs away from the hospital convinced she may have killed her attacker.

So predictable and lame...
16 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

This show is normally good, but this episode was predictable and had a lot of plot holes. First of all, it was obvious that the girl was suffering from the loss of her brother in that she became depressed while starring in a play about a woman that lost her brother. When the little boy came in her dream, it was obvious who he was. Secondly, there were plot holes and unexplained items throughout the show. How did she know the species of cockroaches? How could she just run off in broad daylight only to be caught at night? How come the police where not called at various intervals. Ridiculous!

Very, Very ungratifying.
