Of all the TV shows returning this Fall season, Life was in the top 3 that I was looking forward to the most. The story of the exonerated detective, Charlie Crews somehow leading a (somewhat) normal life while trying to find out who set him up for the murder of a family was an interesting one. When we last saw Crews, he had found the man who committed the crime and put him away. Now he needs to find out who paid him to do it.

Thankfully this episode began with a brief recap getting us (mostly) up to date on what was going on. The last episode of the first season aired in December or January so it’s been awhile since I’ve seen the show. This episode had a strange group of murders. The victims were each found in trunks in odd locations. They were alive when they were placed into the trunks and suffocated while inside. Each trunk was numbered, but the detectives can’t find a connection between them.

The murderer in this case hates people that are happy. I can’t say that I was surprised when the killer’s identity was revealed though. It wasn’t that I didn’t suspect him. It was that he was the only suspect really. No one else was really there so the possibilities were pretty small. (more…)
