  • The episode was very strange as as in it showed characters actring in a matter that everyone knows what the IMF does. From the DA to the mobster demanding that Riggs get the the mob informer out of police cusomy.

    In the outing scenes a mobster named Egan wants Riggs to get a mob informer and deliver him from police customy to him to kill or his friend, the DA, daughter who's been kiddnapped will be killed. Now my problem was this is how does, Egan has the means to pull this off. Egan acts as if he knows what Riggs does for living and his team capabilities. THe thought the IMF was a secert goverment agency and having their id's known will have them esased. The DA evan acts like he knows what Riggs can do. He sees the team at work and it doesn't faze him at all. This goes against everything the IMF stands for.
