  • Not that great an episode!

    6.0
    In this episode the trio come across a gambler named Tommy who is in debt to a triad leader (or chinese gangster... its never really explained.) Tommy is on a losing streak until he kills another gambler and steals his cursed tattoo needles. After using the needles on a victim the tattoo comes alive and kills them... this then brings good luck to the needles owner (in this case Tommy). Tommy finds several victims and starts to win at cards. However his grandfather and sister find out and call Jack, Ryan, and Micki in to help. In the end Tommy gets his come-uppance as he plays a game of Russian roulette as Ryan saves his victim from being killed by their tattoo... thus ending Tommy's luck! Not a great episode- in fact it was pretty average to say the least compared to other episodes.moreless
