  • Not up to the other Noth-Sciorra episodes, but with enough merits to indicate that the writers are capable of better work.

    A sickly toddler is the pawn in this "Dollhouse." Logan and Barek carry out a low-key investigation which eventually puts two women in jail. Overall, the episode was a little better than passable, with discreetly effective chemistry between the two investigators.

    Strong or interesting moments include Logan revealing that his cousin had asthma, and later devising a fictitious suicide note in the presence of Barek, Carver and a prison warden. At the end, a confrontation with the second suspect puts a fresh touch on the old hidden recorder routine, with Noth putting his trademark smoldering intensity to best use.

    Among the nitpicks: setting the episode in January and February when it was obviously filmed in October or November; and the implication that a move to Alaska would threaten the child's life (taking him to the storm-washed, pollution-free southeastern panhandle would be good for his asthmatic lungs). More conflict between the regular characters would be welcome.
