Episode Summary

Crews and Seever investigate the death of a California State Representative who is shot and killed in her home. The detectives discover the representative was the force behind a political initiative that would put a comprehensive ban on handguns and cost a gun manufacturing company millions in profit. Crews and Seever work to prove that the representative's political ambitions may have gotten her killed. Meanwhile, Crews questions what Reese might be doing with the FBI.moreless

  • I want a peaceful soul. I need a bigger gun.

    The story line on this one was easy to run. I did not guess the ID of the second shooter, though. Well played.

    Reese gone! Woo hoo! Please, please, please keep her there.

    I really hope that this is the end of the freaking FBI story arc. Chubby was really getting on my nerves.

    Crews as mayor would be cool, but boring. Interesting thought though.

    Teddy bear still has Olivia on her mind. How sweet – and intriguing that she is alone.

    The shoe scene was top stuff from our favourite police captain. More please!

    And is Zen back?

    "Charlie – what are you thinking about?"

    "I'm thinking about what I want and what I need."

    "What do you want?"

    "I want a peaceful soul."

    "What do you need?"

    "I need a bigger gun."

    Come on people – we can do better than that.

    But here was the best thing about this episode:

    Roman Nevikov is back!!! Is this guy the classiest gangster or what? Home run.moreless
  • Hope it's not the season finale!

    This episode is prove why i watch this Show, it's getting closer to uncover the story with Reise, cause i don't think that FBI would kill her, my guess she and her father have something with FBI,but I'm really hope this is won't be the end of season , i don't wanna wait for it, and Ted Character i like that he is getting involved...especially with new ally ,her story hasn't been told , so she could be anybody, i like the way she handle herself....i think she has some connection with Roman, cause she appeared same time with him.... will see....can't wait next episodemoreless
