Was it coincidence that the first session with the shrink occurred in the Consoler episode, where the Catholic priest abuse scandal is at the heart of the story? Most of the behavior that has come to light over the years occurred during the 60s and 70s, when the Church decided to take advantage of a new, scientific method to deal with troublesome priests - psychotherapy. It sounded perfect (according to a report published a couple of years ago by the Irish government) - the priests were quietly removed from the parish and sent to residential treatment centers for months, sometimes years, sparing the Church's reputation, the priest's reputation, and preventing further abuse by curing the abuser. The only problem was, it didn't work - insight didn't change desires or behavior. And amidst his delving into the current scandal, Goren trustingly asks the psychiatrist whether she thinks it's possible for her to help him have the normal happiness that other people have. Past performance (of the technique) suggests this may not be the way to achieve it.

It it turns out in the final episode that the sessions didn't help, we'll have to admit that we were warned.

At this point I think I know the answer to the puzzle of what's bothering the poor guy, but I'm hoping they have a couple of unexpected twists that turn everything on its head - zebras, not horses. I don't really have a preferred outcome (except, maybe, he leaves the NYPD to return to Korea to look into what Cage was really up to there in the 90s) - I'm just hoping it isn't obviously an ending dictated by the accountants, something obviously intended to preserve the profitability of the reruns and DVDs and the possibility of additional seasons of LOCI by ignoring evidence and logic. But it's called show business for a reason, as someone recently remarked.

Wish they could have included more from later episodes. Oh well, I'm just glad they're giving the show a nice send off.
