Motive Season 2 Review “Deception”

Making a case personal by killing off one of the team’s own is a good idea in theory, but it would have worked better had Dr. Stan ever appeared on Motive before. At least the series made the wise move of casting the eternally lovable Corbin Bernsen in the role. We did not know Stan, but Bernsen has been a television fixture since the ’80s, and he just wrapped up his long-running role on USA’s Psych. While I was not particularly moved by the team’s emotions– of which there were few outside of Betty’s barely contained rage and grief as she made Cross promise to the catch the guy –I was at least interested in why anyone would want to kill a man who seemed so kind and committed to his work in the brief scenes we saw him in.
