    In this continuation of the previous episode's storyline, Frank is still coming to terms with Bletch's death while helping in another murder investigation. When the killer is apprehended, Frank is approached by his lawyer, the silver-tongued, mysterious Al Pepper. Pepper wants Frank's services, but Frank suspects there's more to Pepper than meets the eye-just like last episode's evil Lucy Butler.It's a somewhat odd episode-one is never really sure what's real, and what isn't. Is Pepper really Lucy Butler? Was Pepper the guiding hand behind the murders? And who is the strange young man seen at the crime scenes? Is he an avenging angel? That's one of the show's strengths-it never spoon-feeds the audience, and allows one the luxury of interpretation. It's a demanding episode-it commands your attention at all times, but it's well worth it. Repeat viewings are most rewarding with this episode.If only all TV shows treated their audiences with the same respect as this one does. Intelligent, thoughtful and creepy.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the main part of the episode when Alistair Pepper opened the driver-side car door a bit, before realizing that someone was watching him. Yet in the teaser, he never opened the driver-side door, before turning around when he realized that someone was watching him.

  • QUOTES (1)

  • NOTES (2)

    • This episode marks the final appearance of Bill Smitrovich as Lt. Bob Bletcher. Originally he was just contracted for the pilot episode but impressed Carter with his acting abilities and appeared in a total of 17 episodes. While they appeared as the best of friends on screen, tensions between Smitrovich and Henriksen may have contributed to the former´s exit from the series. On the other hand, the death of Bob Bletcher jarred viewers out of the illusion that the good guys are always safe, and it served as a hint of the coming disasters for the characters.

    • The title of this episode "Powers, Principalities, Thrones and Dominions" refers to four different choirs of angels. The angels are ranked in a hierarchy of nine orders: (1) Seraphim (the most powerful), (2) Cherubim, (3) Thrones, (4) Dominions, (5) Virtues, (6) Powers, (7) Principalities, (8) Archangels, (9) [Regular] Angels.
