Other developments were a bit mixed, though.
Lilly versus Moe is quickly becoming a game of chicken. I can't see Moe blinking first, and let's face it, he has nothing to lose. His career is gone. Hers is not. If she keeps following him, threatening him (and we know she won't stop with his good credit) and bringing new meaning to the term "side arm," then he's simply going to do everything he can to take her down. I know the guy tried to kill her and then got off on a technicality, but seriously, it's not worth it, Lil. There has to be a better way to mess with this guy that doesn't mess with her career. If we ever see Saccardo again in person, maybe he'll have some suggestions. He doesn't strike me as the "always on the up and up" type.
The Scotty and his mom story is getting more mysterious by the episode. It certainly seems that she's dealing with some sort of health issue, but why not just tell her family? Going through an illness or injury is incredibly difficult even with family by your side (I know, I have a loved one battling an illness as I write this), so why make things worse by going through it alone? Because she doesn't want her son and husband to worry? They deserve to know and I hope she reconsiders. In the meantime, couldn't Scotty simply look at what discipline of medicine the doctor practices? Those building directories normally include the practice speciality alongside the doctor's name. Jus' sayin'.
[/nitpick]I've been to Wilmington, Delaware. It has a lot of things, but what it doesn't have is MOUNTAINS!! The second this episode started and the locator told us it was Wilmington and I saw those mountains in the background, it took me right out of the story. I know the show is no longer taking trips to Philly to shoot scenes on location due to budget cuts, but a little attention to detail of terrain isn't asking too much, right?[/nitpick]
Overall, another good episode of Cold Case moving the show to 5-0 on the season.
