  • So all the worries of the cliffhanger are nullified 10 minutes in - oh well. At least the rest of the storyline sets us up for the unexpected. And the final moments provide needed punch.moreless

    This episode, the beginning of season 5, picks up a little while after season 4's cliffhanger. And it's a little disconcerting that the entire Minolo storyline is wrapped up through still pictures in the squadroom and not before our eyes.



    In other words, as long as you know that Crockett has amnesia and assumes he is Sonny Burnett, you don't get any satisfying tie in with the end of Mirror Image.



    But you do get a pretty good story. Sonny is the muscle for a drug kingpen named Carerra. He is smart enough to work his way into his trust and play off his whimpering son Miguel. By the end of the episode Sonny has effective become the kingpen himself, when he gets a second visit - from Rico Cooper. Actually, Sonny recalls his name, Tubbs. Too bad he's a cop.moreless
