    Quite a good episode for numbers. Was that Larry at the end? My husband thought is was but I wasn't sure I recognised him.
  • Don and the team investigate a serial killer who appears to be targeting men who are regular clients of prostitutes. While pursuing the killer driving the car of one of the victims, Colby and Nikki crash their car putting Nikki in the hospital.moreless

    This episode is an improvement over the previous one. Mainly because it has a better written script and a more compelling story. It was also not watered down with scenes of contrived dialogue. The opening scenes, when the killer follows a victim in a hotel, were a high point because it leads the viewer in one direction while the story goes in a different one. Another positive aspect is how a number of suspects are presented which keeps the viewer guessing. The best part however, might just be at the end when we see a familiar face walking on by.moreless
  • The team goes on the hunt for a serial killer who seems to be targeting men who sleep with hookers. While on the hunt for the stolen car of a murder victim, Colby crashes the cruiser, injuring Nikki but manages to save her in time before the car blows upmoreless

    As an episode on its own, I thought it was a very well directed episode. Even though they did a bad job with getting the audience to sympathize with the Devil Girl, I still felt sympathy for her, but maybe I'm just a softie. Nikki needs to stop being such a "bad-ass" and show some weakness, but I suppose her taking up the case of the dead hooker is a way of showing that she has a weakness. Overall, even though they could have used a lot more math in this episode, it was still a good one.



    Also, the crossing of a former character with Don made me very excited for the ending of this season, which I hear is the series finale.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Opening Numb3rs:
      250,000-500,000 SEX WORKERS
      7,627 ESCORT SERVICES
      64 PROSTITUTION ADVOCACY GROUPS
      5 DEAD JOHNS

    • At the end of the episode, the FBI knocks on the doors of all the hotel rooms assuming the killer is in one of them. It's not reasonable to expect him to come to the door and open it for them. Yet when that doesn't happen, they say the hotel is clear, and that he isn't there.

    • The apartment manager who showed the body to Colby and Nikki wouldn't have known to call the FBI instead of the police. It is far more plausible that having found the body, that she would have called 911, which would have brought the LAPD. They would have secured the crime scene and then they would have notified the FBI.

      Colby: (pause) How're you doin'?
      ( Nikki shoves Colby playfully against the elevator wall)
      Colby: (as the elevator doors close) Take it easy, I just got into a car accident.
