This is a tough episode to get to grips with; if it were any other season 3 episode it would be deserving of full marks (despite some scenes seeming curiously similar to the film 'Manhunter'). Yet this episode - number 67 of the series as a whole - has the dubious distinction of being the final hour of Millennium ever filmed. Listening to the Season 3 DVD featurette you get the sense that nobody, including FOX, knew what the future of the series was going to be: were Millennium's declining veiwing figures a sign that the series was losing popularity, or a sign of declining viewing figures for network television more generally? It turned out to be the latter, leaving fans of mature storytelling everywhere at a loss.
So here we have Frank chasing around after a nasty (although it has to be said with all the night-vision stuff, slightly gimmicky) serial killer; Watts, meanwhile, choses his time to bring Holis into the Millennium group, using her ailing 'daddy' as bait. The episode is tightly written and produced, with some nice music from Mark Snow, but the ending - although affecting - should leave fans everywhere a little unhappy, as they consider what could have been if the series was allowed to have reached its full potential.
