Don Flack - CSI: NY | CSI: New York

During this season finale episode Mac and the team are investigating a homicide . While following a blood trail, Mac and Flack stumble upon a large amount of c-4 explosive in an office building. While attempting to clear the building the bomb explodes with Flack and Mac trapped inside. Although Mac walks away from the bombing relatively unhurt, he is separated from Flack. He finds him nearby buried under debris and severely injured. Mac, remembering a fellow Marine whom he coul d not save during a bombing in Beirut, goes to help Flack. With the aid of another survivor Mac manages to tie off a bleeding artery until Flack can be taken to the hospital. As the team rushes to find the bomber, Flack undergoes major surgery where remnants of the bomb are removed from his chest wounds and saved as evidence. Towards the end of the episode the team goes to visit Flack after his operation and he is still unconscious. Mac goes to sit with Flack, still worried about his condition and thinking of the Marine he could not save. He asks Flack to squeeze his hand if he can hear him, the same thing he said to that Marine, but with no response. Flack, however, does squeeze his hand, and Mac is visibly relieved.

Season 3
Black cocaine traces are found in a crime scene, what makes the team think that the victim interrupted a drug deal. The cocaine's formula turns out to be a match to the same one registered after a 50 kilos bust handled by Flack in an apartment some time ago. Immediately, Mac questions Flack about the bust and the men involved in it,and asks him "friendly" for his notebook;Flack stands for his officers, telling Mac that none of them took anything, and refuses to give him his notebook. But when Flack questions a felon involved in the case about the drug quantity, he discovers that they only booked and destroyed 50 kilos, but there were 53 kilos of black cocaine in the apartment. When the evidence points to Dean Truby, one of the agents that worked on the bust, Mac confiscates Flack's notebook. Flack tells him that he is worried about all the criminals that will go out of jail arguing that Truby is a dirty cop, but Mac tells him that what worries him are good cops that will be questioned because of Truby. Later he arrests him in the precinct right in front of Flack.

Ok EMs and FMs. . .what's your take on Flack's hair in the Season Premiere? When I first saw it in the scene where he meets Jo, I literally laughed. . .talk about a Season 1 flashback! However, as the episode progressed it kinda grew on me.

What do y'all think?
