I learned long ago to tune out most of the medical jargon (which only make you question whether or not they have a medical adviser for the series) and just focus on the character interaction.

One thing I am confused by is whether Bob's infidelity was the result of his medical condition. If that was the first time he ever cheated on his wife (and we have no evidence there were other women) and if the aneurysm was affecting impulse control and compulsion, then perhaps he wouldn't have had sex with the girl if not for the aneurysm. So his lie to his wife isn't really much of a lie. I think.

See my comment below; I read it the complete opposite way. ;) Though your interpretation could be valid, too, which is an issue in the writing IMO. I'm all for wanting to provoke discussion and speculation but this veers a bit too far into homework for me.

i like to think the same thing. seems more interesting like this. and makes sense in the context of the story. or maybe is just me not wanting to admit that he can play to "bad guys" in a row.

I don't look too kindly on cheating, but being a remorseless killer ranks higher on my bad guy scale. ;) Unless Body of Proof throws us for a loop, we should have good guy Jamie for awhile. :)
