  • Carter becomes the victim

    Very good episode with nice twists.

    Looks like there is a constant control of power and opinions between Carter and Ty, however, they both always try to do what's best for the team and for the victims.

    Ty makes Carter see that sending Jaimie undercover could be dangerous and fortunately he realizes it's true and does the job himself. I was surprised when things didn't go the way they planned and how they struggled to get things back in place. Ty did a great job playing with the minds of the kidnappers. And Jaimie's idea worked pretty well too. I hope she gets more action in the next episodes. She could become a strong female character.

    I also liked how the guys, at least in the episode, tried to protect Jaimie, specially Dean.moreless
  • Great

    If there's one thing I love it's when all the pieces of a great potential episode come together...

    Dylan's just about the best at brooding while still engaging an audience and he's doing an excellent job on this show. The other actors are surprisingly well cast imo and the chemistry is believable which is more than I can say for most shows currently out there, so another big plus :)

    The show keeps surprising me with interesting plots and I have to admit I've had my doubts in the past but Dark Blue is looking like a homerun for TNT.

    Great series, great episode, keep watching people!moreless

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Capt.Maynard (says to Carter): I've figured it out,why you've been an unholy prick. It's your birthday.

    • Ty: Look, it's one thing for Jaimie to go undercover as a criminal and another go under as a victim.
      Carter: She knows what she signed on for. This isn't the girls scout.
      Ty: Yeah, but they saw her picture (pauses, Carter looks at him). They're talking rape.
      Carter: They won't get the chance. You'll be there.
      Ty: So this is on me?
      Carter: I trust you.
      Ty: You trust me? You don't need to trust me, you're back here. Jaimie needs to trust me particularly because you don't have a transponder nor a decent cover.
      Carter (upset): I am trying to save someone's life.
      Ty: We don't even know if the woman is still alive.
      Carter: That's no reason to stop.
      Ty: How about putting us all at risk? Is that reason enough?
      Carter: It's what we do.
      Ty (angry): No, it's what we do.

    • Carter (in pain): You want 2 million dollars from her and 2 million dollars from me, right? Let her go. Let her go and I'll get you the money.
      Dante: Why?
      Carter: I have insurance, it won't cost me a penny. Let her go and you'll get your money. I promise.
      Dante: When?
      Carter: As soon as we can have it, a day.
      Dante: And if you don't?
      Carter: Then kill me... And you get nothing.

    • Jaimie: You didn't say anything to him?
      Dean: No.
      Jaimie: Then why is he replacing me?
      Dean: Why do you think this has anything to do with me?
      Jaimie: I swear to God ever since I got together with Scott--
      Dean: Oh please, don't flatter yourself on it.
      Jaimie: In case you haven't noticed I'm not flattered, I'm pissed.
      Carter: Stay right here. (to Dean) Come on.
      Dean (to Jaimie): Hey, his choice, not mine.

    • Dean: You got a better idea?
      Jaimie: Yeah. Carter is a fixer.
      Dean: A fixer?
      Jaimie: He needs projects. He needs to save people. Look at us.
      Dean: Speak for yourself.

    • Cpt. Maynard: What was the deal when we first started this?
      Carter: I catch people for you.
      Cpt. Maynard: And?
      Carter: You're OK with it because I do things no one else will.
      Cpt. Maynard: And you don't lose your mind in the process.
      Carter: Give me a break.

    • Jaimie: He listens to you, Dean.
      Dean: Yeah, so?
      Jaimie: So when you say things like 'I won't blend' or 'stay in the car' he listens.
      Dean: Yeah, it's because you won't blend and should stay in the car.

    • Jaimie(to Dean): I hate it when mommy and daddy fight.
