So Donovan\'s secret is finally out. Not a big surprise really, they\'d been heading towards this direction for some time now. Was glad to hear he actually told it himself; an act of courage that fits the character perfectly.
After telling everyone he used to work for the rat squad, he has to lead the eviction and then deal with a murder, the actual plot of the episode a mere background to all the reactions to his revelation. While some of the cops are ready to give him the benefit of the doubt, many are suspicious - just as they would be - without looking like total bigots or painted evil.
The awful confusion shown in some of the cops was also wonderful; they didn\'t know what to think. Also, the mixed feelings of hating all rats but admirng Donovan came out perfectly.
Jonas as their new captain is shown in a favourable light, he\'s definitely on his way to becoming a likable character. He really does look like he\'s standing by his men instead of harboring grudges and secret loyalty to the internal affairs.
I like the fact that they don\'t really come to any conclusion about Donovan during this episode. Too many tv drama shows tend to wrap up things too quickly (or drag them on and on and ON but that\'s beside the point), and this one carries the tension well.
The actual storyline over the eviction is well balanced with the tension of Donovan\'s revelation. The anger most cops show as they lead the people out of their homes is believable both as frustration over not knowing what\'s going on and as simply doing something they hate. The murder is also very believable in the understated way this show deals with crime: most criminals aren\'t masterminds working to gain billions. They\'re simply desperate or obeying someone else.
All in all a very good episode leaving you waiting for more.moreless
