    The latest episode of Flashpoint finally introduces us to Greg's son, and while they did not exactly cast the next Robert de Niro in the role, this was a big moment for the CBS series, that hopefully will return next summer for more episodes and more solutions.



    This episode was a bit slow moving, but what really irked me is how similar it was to another recent episode with the mother that was taking back the kids she was forced to give up into adoption. To do these two episodes so close together was a bit puzzling, as this show is only in its third season, it's not like Law and Order where a lack of originality at this point is expected.moreless
  • Its a series built on perspectives.

    How tough is it to be off the grid for your own protection, and then when you need ordinary run of the mill protection, you have trouble getting it because...well...you're off the grid!



    I liked this story because it wasn't just about the victims, though their tale was compelling in and of itself; just because its hard to imagine what a lifetime of hiding, and then re-hiding, must be like.



    I also liked it because it showed the effects of an incident on some of the people who who "see" these cases from the other end of the phone line, and how difficult it must be for them to take home...or NOT take home as the case may be...the job. You expect it to be tough for the front line folks, but you don't often think there are others who get the ball rolling. Flashpoint is good at these little insights.



    And of course, it never hurts to see Yannick Bisson in anything, especially when his character is diametrically opposed to the "Jack Hudson" and "William Murdoch"-type characters we are used to seeing him play on TV! It was fun to see him on (or in) the other side of the handcuffs!



    Please sir, I want more Flashpoint!moreless

    I wish I could figure out exactly why I loved this episode, but it was one of my favorites. Once again the writers did a great job at showing how we are one person. All our different roles in life are linked and often a situation in one area dovetails with a situation in another. Here, Greg is facing the potential of losing the son he just 'found' while having to help Kate, who is dealing with the grief of losing of her daughter only to have to face having had a hand in worsening Alexis' crisis and perhaps even her death.



    Alexis talked about how we are each whole and when we get together with others, we are each 'more.' The best way I can say it is that the personal and professional challenges depicted in this episode made the show 'more' and I appreciated watching it.moreless

    • Sgt. Parker: (about Alexis) She reminds you of your daughter?


      Kate Chaplain: Yeah. When my daughter was sick, we did homework together – until the very end.


      Sgt. Parker: Yeah, that pain doesn't go away, does it. Oh yeah, and this job, that doesn't make things easier. You just have to survive other people's losses, every day. People who deserve to live, like your daughter. People who trust you, people who get close to you, people who depend on you. And then sometimes, sometimes those people just go away. So what's the point? Why, why let anyone matter? Hmm? Your job and my job and how precious it is to find someone, someone pure, someone real, like a friend in the middle of all this mess, right? She's not gonna want to talk to us, Alexis, she's gonna want to talk to you. She doesn't have any friends except you and (takes stuffed monkey from his pocket and hands it to Kate) Maurice. Now you know what she's going through. Right now she thinks her mom's dead and maybe her dad. You gotta promise me that you're gonna see this through.


      Kate Chaplain: I promise.

    • Alexis Sobol: (talking about Maurice, her stuffed monkey) He's getting the hang of fractions, finally!
      Kate Chaplain: Those can be tough.
      Alexis Sobol: He didn't understand about, like how you have four thirds or six fifths. How can you have more of a thing than a whole thing?
      Kate Chaplain: That's a smart question. How'd you explain it to him?
      Alexis Sobol: I said, it's like: you're a whole thing, I'm a whole thing. But when we're together, we're each sort of - more. (silence on the phone) Are you there?
      Kate Chaplain: Yeah. Wow, that's a good answer!

    • Dean Parker: (listening in on his dad interviewing 9-1-1 Operator Kate) What's he doing?
      Winnie: He's profiling. He's trying to understand Alexis so he can help her. There's nobody better than him.
      Dean Parker: Really?
      Winnie: Really.
