  • An improvement over the Pilot but the series still has a ways to go

    6.0
    "Second Chances" is an improvement of the mixed results of the show's Pilot episode as Michelle is questioned in the attempted murder of a foreign diplomat with whom she has a complicated history. Together King and Maxwell work together to prove her innocence and discover who is really to blame.



    Two episodes in the show's logic is still too convoluted than necessary and I would like to see an episode that doesn't have worldwide implications.

    On old case file of Michelle's re opens when a Russian Diplomat Nikoloz Arziani is back in town, when she was in the Secret Service. About 4 years ago Michelle was protecting him and there was an assassination attempt made on his life back then as well by her. One of Arziani' security guys, a charming man by the name of Gruzinsky had smuggled a 14 year old girl into his apartment where he Drugged and Raped her (I Dont Like Men Like That). Step in Agent Rigby and Agent Carter who try and arrest Maxwell, meanwhile Edgar tell's Michelle to go and see Alina Meshki the girl who was Drugged and Raped. Alina tells Michelle that she has been seeing Arziani and Gruzinsky outside her window every night (Also Worth Mentioning 4 Mysterious Phone Calls 3 To The Boathouse And 1 To Michelle's Cell Phone). Also Sean finds a cell phone, a dead guy and a sniper rifle that all leads back to Michelle. Sean is off to the other crime scene and back at the Boathouse Arziani is waiting for Michelle to have a talk, (Arziani Is A Piece Of Work). Sean solves the whole case with the help of Edgar, so he asks Michelle to meet him at Arziani' Hotel, enter Rigby and Carter. It turns out Gruzinsky and Arziani were both involved in this so called assassination attempt to reinvent Arziani' falling approval Rating back home and for the exchange of gunfire between Gruzinsky and King and Maxwell earlier. Just at the end when you thought it was over Alina comes rushing through the crowd with a gun to shoot Arziani, but she doesn't get that far. Maxwell pushes Arziani to the ground and the bullet gets fired into the police car and Alina is stopped, (All In All, Another Fantastic Episode). Thumbs Up TNT.moreless
