  • Superb acting and powerful emotion. A greatly executed episode.

    I really like this episode, one of my favorites of this season. Bruce Willis plays a role you've probably never seen him in - an abusive arms dealing husband. He plays it all too well, and that shows how amazing of an actor he is. In turn, Don Johnson does very well in this episode. He emotes a lot of pain and sympathy. It's a tough one for Crockett, and ends on an intense note. Definitely a top-notch episode!

    This was one of the better episodes in the first season, when the show was still finding its way.



    Bruce Willis (and his real hair!) makes a nice turn as an arrogant arms dealer who introduces us to the handheld stinger missile launcher. (He could've used this when he became the Jackal!)



    He is utterly contempuous and it is a natural for us to feel for the wife. The best moment comes when she responds to the question of why she can't just leave and divorce him. Her eyes are pained when relaying that she once called a lawyer, and he had two goons rape the lawyer's wife and threaten his daughter if they didn't drop the case.



    The ending, while predictable, is one you wait for.moreless
