  • History and backstory for our characters and more questions about Gene and Angela and her parents...

    I think this has been my favorite episode so far. Our case delt directly with Angela, her past, and the present delimma she finds herself in.



    The case was a great way to fill us in on her background. We now understand how she and Dozer and Leo became a team. In the process we learned more about Dozer and Leo as well (always a nice thing...makes the characters more human...easier to relate to them, start to care for them.)



    As I've said in earlier reviews, the part of this series that intrigues me is Angela and her history. The cases normally I can take or leave. It's this intricate weaving of her parents 'alledged' guilt (I'm not sure I believe they're truely guilty), Angela's brother's belief in her parents, Angela's doubts in her parents, the mysterious Gene...



    This week the instant Angela's mother told Gene not to say anything to Angela I knew he was her father. When he was the only match for her, my assumption was only solidified. Gene is 'bad'. I just can't determine to what level of bad. Is he working to find eveidence that would free Angela's mother, clear her name (I don't think he has any desire to help Angela's father...in fact I think Gene was responsible for putting him in prison in the first place). Or is he himself the 'spy' who's looking for the information that Angela's parents have successfully hidden?



    He contridicts himself though. If he's truely bad he wouldn't car about Angela. Yet he's clearly worried about her and he saves her (well helps, with the blood transfussion).



    On the other hand (yet again) he goes about threatening Dylan, even when Dylan says he out. So I guess my only conclusion is that I don't trust Gene. I'm not sure how 'bad' he is, I just know I don't trust him.



    I can't wait to see how Angela reacts to Dylan next week. I really feel sorry for the both of them. Angela finally lets her guard down and truely finds someone that she believes she can trust. I wonder if Dylan will explain why he did what he did and who he did it for. And on a completely side note: Does everyone in this group read Russian? First Angela's brother and it sure seemed like Dylan was reading it too!moreless
