    And why? Because this is the most poorly written episode of the show. I actually hit a point of cringing in sympathy for the cast... and they couldn't save it. All the wild con personas they used couldn't hide (distract from) how superficial the setup really was, or that the team's typical research of a target didn't expose the psychological dimensions they only picked up on the fly... or not. Then of course there's other little issues everywhere like how Parker takes out a trained assassin on a Ferris wheel... but of course since we don't see it, all the director thinks we need to believe it is to show the outcome. There are many many more small details fouled up (like yet another gadget that this time magically opens a safe that a master safecracker / thief can fully identify but suddenly can't open). Rather than go over more, I'll just forget I saw this one at all. I've seen better written comic books... and that was over 30 years ago.
