Or perhaps Goren is plagued with enough self doubt and guilt that he thinks he deserves such torture?
That's deep. I have to think about that. Guilt about Frank? Donny? Mom?
Speaking of torture, the ME had hospital records for Jay, the murdered inmate. It was proven that he died of dehydration & was deprived of water & food for 4 days. Also, his severe trauma from restraints would have been obvious to the hospital staff (before the mortician's makeup covered it). So are we to believe that the hospital was in on it?
An A from me as well - for whatever reason, I really liked this episode but agree with everyone who felt that it needed to be extended to two-hours to completely tell the story.

I have seen this one a couple of times and I thought the acting and story line were both worthy of an A. I don't think I'm going to enjoy watching the whole unraveling of Goren - it's to depressing. I agree with everyone else this could have been a 2 hour episode.

A for me ......... With an intense and exceptional Vincent a beautiful introspection in the character of Goren .. I join with the longest history would have developed better I have enjoyed very
I gave it an A too, Sabry. Vincent was simply incredible in those prison scenes. The counting backwards from 10 left me in tears. It was a very sad episode, but very dramatic and well acted by all involved...especially Vincent!

I gave this one the "Cain and Able" vote. I appreciate the quality of VDO's acting, but it was too much for me. The squirm factor during his time in "Heaven" makes it impossible to re- watch this without keeping my finger on fast- forward. Artists, including writers and actors, are supposed to elicit a deep emotional response, and they certainly did here! Maybe I'm too sensitive but it isn't a favorite.
(I do love the engagement ring scene and "take Eames to a motel" comment! )
