Episode Summary

A high-risk bank robbery raises red flags for Detectives Morales and Jaruszalski, especially when a second robbery uses the same kidnapping threat. What they don't expect is the threat to one of their own when they close in on the suspect. DDAs Dekker and Rubirosa have their own battle when it turns out their trial strategies differ from those of DA Hardin.moreless

  • Hmmm...

    In general, not a bad episode, not a bad one, just the average L&O episode we grow used to.

    Nothing worth of a review, I must add, if it wasn't for the method the bank robber used to get the money: photoshopping the cashier's son in order to make a fake kidnapping.

    This would be a clever cool idea for the episode if we weren't supposed to believe that it took the robber so little time to make the comp.If I am not wrong, it only took him an hour to get the picture, go to the cyber café, do the actual comping with such skill that it is undetectable, print the photo and go to the bank.

    Hmmmm... If I was him, I rather would be earning big bucks in graphic design and advertising instead of robbing banks. Everybody would pay for somebody that fast and with such skills.

    I mean, in the time we are supposed to believe he did the photoshopping the only thing he would have handed to the mum/cashier would have been a crappy collage nobody would mistake for an actual photo.

    If only we were told he took the picture the day before... but no, he took the picture and did photoshop magic in minutes.


    So that's why this is a mediocre episode.moreless
  • NICE

    After a poor showing last week, LOLA returned with a vengeance. With its future uncertain, its good to see that Los Angeles is pulling out the stops that made the original a success- namely the struggle to seek justice amidst legal dilemmas, moral quagmires, and office politics. The cast plays well off of each other- Alfred Molina and Corey Stoll continue their budding bromance, I mean, patnership, as Dekker and Rubirosa seem to be getting cozy in the courtroom... and Peter Coyote... well, nobody likes Peter Coyote... he's just a jerk? but seriously, Dekker's choice to call Hardin to the stand was unexpected and riveting- it was the kind of thing that McCoy would have done to Arthur Branch, or that Cutter would have done to McCoy... it made me feel nostalgic and so LOLA gets a 9.5 this week.moreless
