Earlier this week, CBS premiered the promo for New York season finale "What You See Is What You See".

The episode will take a hit at Mac's life, as a gunman opens fire while he's having breakfast at his local spot. The assault leaves a waitress critically injured and a man dead, and Mac having to choose whether to chase after the suspect or save the life of the young woman. Meanwhile, before the chaos, Mac was approached by a shy patron who awkwardly engaged him in conversation. After feeling that he saved her life during the shoot out, she asks him to join her for a drink and Mac must decide if he is ready to start dating after his wife's tragic death. "What You See Is What You See" was written by Andrew Lipsitz and directed by Duane Clark.

The 30-second trailer for the episode is now available on the official CBS site. For those of you with slower connections, here's a transcript:
