  • Not the best

    6.5
    Car chase was great but other wise plot was just ok.
  • Kidnapping and roller coasters.

    7.5
    If you guessed that this episode of Flashpoint would revolve around two teens kidnapping a child and one racing up a roller coaster then you were right.



    This episode certainly had its moments, but unfortunately they were all before the opening credits in the first few minutes. The action was nonexistent and the chase was as lackluster as I have ever seen.



    Flashpoint needs to improve because even though they may be far superior to the rest of the CBS police dramas those pull in vastly better ratings in nearly every demographic.



    So, a good episode, but hopefully we get more to come.moreless

    One of the things I've recently realized about Flashpoint is that most of the scripts are pretty predictable but I still tune in every week. It's pretty action pack and tonight's episode even included a car chase. We have the biological parents wanted their child back but for the wrong reasons. I found Terry's backstory heartbreaking making me sympathic, even more understanding of his desire to keep his son. However, it's every parents job to do what's best for their child and ultimately our mom does just that for Owen. I loved that Donna's shows some weakness and Ed called her on it. Their would be to many repercussions, some can be deadly, should it happen again.moreless

      scene: (CODA - Closing Scenes) Jessie gives her baby up again and is led to a police cruiser by Sgt. Parker. The team is debriefed. Afterward, Ed confronts Sabine about her actions during the situation. She asks him if the job gets any easier and he says no. After she walks away, Ed looks over at Sgt. Parker, who was watching the confrontation. The baby's parents cuddle and play with him. Sabine takes a long, hard look at herself in the mirror in the locker room.
