  • Huntress is involved with a gang of thieves as part of a scheme by Reese to capture them in the act. Reese and Huntress don't agree about the job and how to do it. Dinah is going thru the different levels of grief over the loss of her mother.

    I had split feelings about this episode. In some ways it was great and in others it was a step backwards. Reese and Huntress are finally getting some trust with each other but then Huntress throws it all away by lying to him. Not only that but Reese' partner almost gets killed because of Huntress later in the episode.

    The gang is a bunch of motorcycle riders that basically take money and jewels from patrons at different city hot spots. It turns out it is a front for Harley and just another of her money making schemes. Harley tells the leader that she is happy with the money but why no murders?

    Barbara and Wade get together in a well done bedroom scene that was rather tastefully done. She tells Helena later how great it was.

    Dinah is still emotional but we see her in action again in support of Huntress. Reese gets upset with Huntress and gets captured trying to do things his way. Huntress then gets captured as well when she shows up and they know she is in cahoots with Reese. They taser her and tie her to a ring in the ceiling. Dinah shows up and Huntress gets loose and then they take the gang down.

    Reese and Huntress make up and she disappears on him again. The ending on this episode was a little strange and a little hard to take in general except for Dinah's part. The rest did not quite fit together for me.
