Cold Case S01E09 – Sherry Darlin’ Promo Updates

promo_007 promo_008

By this stage in the history of the Cold Case squad, Lilly and co. have clearly gained a reputation for looking into old cases.  A man speaks to Lilly about a murder he claims he committed 14 years previously.

A lot of cop shows like their recurring characters.  Normally they are serial killers that keep cropping up through-out a season, giving the detectives involved another case to solve and a few more clues to their identity.  Personally I find these drawn out story lines rather tedious.  They are made even worse when, at the last moment, the killer gets away once again, free to return at some random time in future.

In the case of Sherry Darlin’, the killer didn’t get away, and the man that held himself responsible (and partly was) was jailed.  Case closed?  Yes, but that man actually came back to Lilly, whilst still in jail, having learned to trust her, to help solve another case in a future episode.  It is nice when shows bring back characters like that.

This photo update, the latest in our series going back through the series, is just two new promo images (see above) from this episode. Be a darlin’ and check them out in the KM UK Gallery.

Cold Case S01E06 – Love Conquers Al Promo Updates

s01e06_promo_003

See that guy in the middle in the photo below?  That’s Danny Pino.  I think you already knew that though.  It is not much of a stretch to assume you did.

It was this episode, number six in the first season of Cold Case, that we were introduced to Detective Scotty Valens.  He replaced the Chris Lassing character, as played by Justin Chambers (Grey’s Anatomy), who was Lilly’s cop partner in three of the first four episodes.

Speaking of partners we also got an initial brief glimpse into Lilly’s life outside work, though this peach doesn’t stray far from the tree, as we meet her beau Assistant District Attorney Kite (Josh Hopkins, Quantico).

Anyway, ‘Love Conquers Al’ involves the case of a high school athlete killed twenty two years earlier in 1981.   Summer Glau (a regular in Joss Whedon’s work such as Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse) was that runner in the flashbacks.  Her then boyfriend, the titular Al, was jailed for the crime. The previous week’s episode was called ‘The Runner’, someone on the production must have on a get fit kick.

The other man in these new photos is the actor Vincent Ventresca (Fun Bobby in two episodes of Friends, and lots of other things, including Dollhouse).  His Bennett Cahill wasn’t so fun in this.  Now a successful doctor, Bennett’s past catches up with him.

For this latest update in our series we have 3 new promo images from this episode. Run them down (see what I did there?) in the KM UK Gallery.

Cold Case S01E05 – The Runner Promo Updates

promo_011

There’s a phrase/idiom in English: “having your collar felt”.  It means to be arrested and probably relates to the idea of a police officer grabbing a ne’er-do-well by the collar to hold them still whilst questioning them.

Although not strict ‘by the collar’ Lilly is very much acting out the phrase in the photo above.  She’s got her man.

Sorry for the spoilers but it has been 15 years since ‘The Runner’, episode 5 of Cold Case‘s first season, so you’ve had more than enough time to find out who did it.  It’s that guy!

Continuing our CC photo updates on the same date as the original airing plus 15 years, we have 3 new large promo images from ‘The Runner’.  They are now in the KM UK Gallery.

Cold Case S01E04 – Churchgoing People Promo Updates

promo_003 promo_006

I think that ‘Churchgoing People’ really made it clear that Cold Case was not your typical cop show.

It didn’t end with the squad high-fiving and proclaiming ‘we got him’.  Yes, justice was done.  A long standing wrong was righted.  But you weren’t spoon-fed the classic ‘happily ever’ after ending.  The team used their detective skills to find the facts, but Lilly had to use her empathy as well as her powers of observation to get to the heart the case.

Anyway, this is the first in a new series of KM UK Gallery updates of promotional photos and stills from Cold Case.  This time we’re going by the original air date and adding 15 years.  I didn’t have anything new for episodes 1 to 3 so we start here.  There are many more to come.

Above you will see an enlarged image and a new one to the Gallery.

15 Years Old: Cold Case

CC_Titles_16On this date, the 28th of September, Cold Case premièred on CBS in the USA.  Of course, that particular 28th of that specific September was the one in 2003.

A whole 15 years ago.  If you’re not feeling old enough already then that fact will not help.  We must, however, mark the occasion so important in many people’s, including my own, our introduction to Kathryn Morris.  The show is instrumental in the existence of this very site.

We got to enjoy Kathryn and her colleagues across seven seasons of Cold Case but the powers that be didn’t know that in 2003.  As with any new show they put it out there hoping audiences will find it and connect with it sufficiently to return each week.  And they did, in their millions right to the end.

Sadly the show did come to a close in May 2010 after 156 episodes.

Happy Birthday Cold Case.

In the coming months I will be posting new and updated promotional and stills photographs from Cold Case episodes in time with their original airing dates.  Look out for the first set in a few weeks.
