  • We learn about the shady organization that may be responsible for kidnapping Leo, and Knapp has to go undercover to try to get some information. Leo nearly dies from his self-worsened wound, and steals the doctor's phone.moreless

    My favorite episode so far. Knapp has to go undercover, but he clearly shows hesitancy at being subjected to their mind tests while he helps King search their databases for info on Schroeder. He shows a lot of his true personality as he is forced to answer very personal questions (he doesn't know if his mother is alive). King rescues him in the nick of time and Knapp, his hands tied together, asks if King would like to take the tie off; King's reply: "Not particularly," said while grinning widely.



    Leo is deathly ill from the infection he egged on with the razor blade, but it works: they decide to bring in a doctor. Best scene: Bellows "petting" Leo and whispering, "You're my kid. You do anything to make them think otherwise, you're my DEAD kid." Leo manages to steal the doctor's phone (before Bellows drives the good doctor home but kills him along the way), but when he's conscious enough to use it, Otto comes in and handcuffs him to the bed again. Leo had dropped the phone under the bed to hide it, but now he can't reach it, as he's handcuffed, and the phone's battery is dying!moreless

    this was an amazing episode and I was anxious the entire way through. Leo continues to amaze me and I think Knapp, Turner and King made some real progress in the mystery of who is behind all this. Definitely couldn't stop imagining what I hope will be a future reunion between Leo and his parents.
  • Latimer and Knapp are still on the case.

    This episode was necessary to move the storyline along. The kidnappers have a doctor see Leopold who is clearly almost septic from the leg wound he sustained which results in the one kidnapper killing the doctor(knew it was gonna happen this guy is barbaric). Conrad killed Sullivan but no one knows this(even though one may suspect it). Conrad keeps having flashbacks of Leopold as a young child when he pulled him from the bottom of the pool and revived him. Ellie is having a hard time dealing with her emotions so she goes to a "Lost Child" meeting which turns out to be a major mistake since the media are following her and trick her into talking to them. So now the kidnapping will be splattered all across the news very soon. The assassin somes to take out the bodyguard during surgery(pretty gutsy move with Latimer in the obs room) but it goes wrong. The main kidnapper then threatens the assassin with killing his wife. This should be a good arc considering this assassin doesn't look too chuffed to have his wife threatened..maybe he is the one who blew up the office...still no closer to finding Leopold since they have no clue he is in Mexico. Knapp was cool as well as Latimer..nice chemistry between those two. It was a good solid episode. I like this show and love the cast.moreless

    • Number One with a Bullet

      The title is a reference to how songs that have risen quickly on the Billboard music charts are identified. Each week, Billboard magazine publishes a list of the 100 most popular songs from the previous week, as determined by a combination of airplay and record sales. Songs that move up the list by more than 10 places in a single week have their line on the chart marked with a special symbol called a "bullet". Songs that reach number one with a "bullet" are songs that generally have moved up the charts very rapidly, and are thus extremely popular. The phrase "Number One With a Bullet" is often used to imply something "big" or "important" that happens very quickly or unexpectedly.

    • Title: "Number One With a Bullet"

      The title is a lyric from the band Fall Out Boy's song "Sugar We're Goin' Down" the lyric goes "Sugar we're goin' down swingin'/ I'll be your number one with a bullet/ A loaded God complex cock it and pull it"
