  • The suspense is killing me!

    This episode just has it. It starts off rather odd with Harm interviewing a suspect in a murder investigation, accompanied by a Security Chief. Not that special, you might find, but the very location of the conversation is the belly of a ship that shortly after the beginning of this episode hits ground and starts to fill up with water, endangering the three men as the hatch to safe space is blocked by a considerable amount of debris.



    The tension here is - simply put - thick. The actual case which led Harm (and Mac who is aboard, too) to the ship is rather simple although the point is delivered not until the last few minutes. In addition, the suspect aggravates the whole situation by constantly begging Harm and the chief to let him out of his cell.



    We all know that the series has a lot more episodes to come and we hardly believe that anything really serious could happen to Super-Harm but the way this episode keeps you on your toes is just spectacular.



    As a side-story, the Admiral's character gets a new face, showing some flaws in the hard-headed, beloved seal.
