  • A Dark Secret

    10
    What started out as looking like a one in a series of 'robberies by proxy' turned into anything but. Team One soon discovered that the entire tragic drama is based on gambling addiction. Robyn Engels jeopardized her life and the life of her family because an addiction that is much more prevalent in our society than casinos and lotteries like to admit. It's not as well known as alcoholism, which AA has done a terrific job in not only helping millions overcome, but also fostering understanding that it's a disease and not a weakness.Gambling addiction is no different. I've done some research ion the past on the subject and it's amazing to hear the tragic stories that people have shared and the careers, lives and families that have been destroyed because of this disease.Robyn was able to stop when her husband finally gave her an ultimatum to choose between the table and her family, but sadly her past caught up woth her. It's great to see that it turned out well in the end, but this is a TV show. In real life, it's not always the case. It's also very sad that Dan fed her addiction because he thought she cared about him, rather than just using him as a source of money to feed her addiction.Another terrific episode. Flashpoint has never been shy about taking on difficult issues and handling them well and this is no exception. Well done.moreless

    • Raf: So, she's taking her own money out of her own account.
      Spike: Yeah, we had five robberies like this last year - robbery by proxy. Guy targets a wealthy client, forces him to go in the bank and bring out the money. That way he doesn't have to put on a ski mask or go in there yelling 'this is a stick-up.'
      Raf: And if it's a false alarm?
      Spike: I don't know, go do some shopping.

    • Sgt. Parker: What's going on with Sam? He's challenging Ed, he's second guessing orders, he's debriefing in the street, Jules.
      Jules: Are you asking me as your teammate right now?
      Sgt. Parker: If I was asking you as my teammate, I would keep the headsets on. Hey, I let this thing go on between you means I keep a close eye, that's the deal.
      Jules: Well, I think that it's been hard for him, Boss. He ran Tac for five months while Ed was recovering.
      Sgt. Parker: And he did a good job.
      Jules: Maybe he feels like he has more to offer than he gets to give.

    • Spike: Guys, I see cameras. I'm in.
      Sgt. Parker: Did you just guess at the wireless password?
      Spike: No, but I guess that Harvey's IT guys are one step behind the highly illegal password cracking software to which I subscribe.
      Sgt. Parker: Spike, sometimes you scare me.
      Spike: I scare myself sometimes.
