  • Only one word for this episode.....Lacking!

    In this episode of In Plain Sight, the following happens. When a woman gets arrested for fraud, she makes a deal and goes into witness protection. Mary quickly believes that she is holding things back, and in time we learn that this is in fact the case. Mike Faber returns in this episode, and he still seems to have a thing for Mary.

    Overall this episode was really disappointing. I was expecting better but the story was lacking and Marshall was sent away so there was no comedy. Overall not really an enjoyable episode, but at least now it's over, and we are all safe in the knowledge that Marshall is back and next week's episode will hopefully be an improvement.moreless
  • love faber's lost

    "Love Faber's Lost" is the title for this episode, and I probably would have liked things better if MMA fighter Urijah Faber showed up.

    Tonight we saw the return of FBI agent Mike Faber, a character played by Steven Weber, a guy who hasn't been funny since Wings ended. While I am all for a romance with Mary that does not involve Raph, this is not what I want for the leading lady.

    But ignoring that this was just a mediocre episode from top to bottom. The backstory was about as cliched as they come, and we did not even get that great a pay off for it. Even by Season 3 standards this is not a good In Plain Sight.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Mary was married when she was 17 years old for 36 hours.

    • It doesn't make sense that the district US Marshal for New Mexico would be in the position of assigning someone to transport a prisoner when neither the departure nor arrival location are in her jurisdiction. Further, it makes no sense to assign a WITSEC inspector who is in a specialized unit to a transport detail.

    • Mary and her ex-fiance Raph had been together for three years.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Ike: What do you care what happens to her?
      Mary: Hey, numbnuts; as long as she's my witness, she stays safe. If she bails on the program, you're right. I don't care about her. She can get hit by a dump truck and die.
      Mike: Wow. That should be on a plaque over the door.

    • Natalie: I figured out how to live on my own.
      Mary: Yeah, you sure did. Check fraud, grand theft, forgery. Just couldn't squeeze in murder or prostitution?
      Agent Faber: Maybe she's going alphabetically.
