  • Thought-provoking mystery

    Michele Gallery's script has a lot of surprises in it...it's more a mystery with elements of history and religion. It's obvious that a great deal of research about the history of Los Angeles and its people went into her writing of this episode. The actors are great, and the on-location filming in the Olvera Street district of L.A. adds a nice touch of authenticity. I think what I most like about this episode is that you see two families fighting over some sort of artifact, and you almost think it's going to be a Hatfield & McCoys type of thing, but it goes in a completely different direction (and both families don't realize it, but there's another group that ultimately claims victory). The scenes are very compelling. It's more than a double-cross; it's a triple-cross, actually. Great episode.
