Dr. Liz Cruz: Teddy! What are you doing in Sean's office?
Dr. Teddy Rowe: [thinking quickly] Oh, uhm, just picking up the ring I gave him. Kind of a closure.
[brave smile, then looks down]
Dr. Teddy Rowe: If only it were that easy, right?
Dr. Liz Cruz: [smirks] The only possible closure I could have with Christian, would land me in a maximum security prison.
[Teddy smirks]
Dr. Teddy Rowe: [voice breaking] I just love him... so much. You know... I just... I do.
[tearfully, causing Liz to look at her in concern]
Dr. Teddy Rowe: I'll be fine. Uhm, please don't tell him you saw me like this.

the dating pool from psychos 'r' us, but we just don't learn to recognize them at a glance...

Yeah, I wasn't much impressed with the season kick-off and quickly went on to the next episode. Marginally better, with Rose McGowan really being the only good reason to watch, though there is some performance by that unhinged porcelain white-skinned redhead as well. As for the plot, if you do not see what is going to happen re this 'Enigma' psycho bloke, well, duh!

Always strikes me as totally corny that these characters, who have encountered so many hell-bent weirdos, never learn from their mistakes, they form relationships with strangers as if they didn't just escape from the clutches of last week's psychotic maniac. Yet Sean sits there with that pale lunatic vagabond with the dark mascara... Doesn't make any sense in the context of this being the umpteenth episode with what would be in real-life a world-weary man's exposure to yet another mad critter. Poor Sean. Body like a pin cushion. Last time he got stabbed was end of Season 4. Must be quite immune to it, really.

It's simply just that this series has been going on too long.
