  • A serial sniper has been terrorizing Los Angeles, but Charlie comes to realize that while some of the attacks are by one shooter, the rest are copy cats, using the sniper as a cover for their own acts of violence.

    I love this episode!!! Charlie finds himself questioning his methods. Nothing wrong with the math, but the sniper expert from Quantico (the always on-target Lou Diamond Phillips) makes Charlie wonder if his cerebral approach is equal to the task when comparing himself to the real life experience of Philips character. Don, as always, is torn between protecting his little brother to respecting Charlie's right to gain experience ouside of the classroom, especially when it is something Dad might find objectionable. Dad finds out about Charlie learning to shoot a gun, but the brothers do manage to keep quiet about when Charlie was put at risk - something sure to freak out the father if he ever were to learn about it. The drama, the mystery and most of all, the family ties that weave the stories so well abound in this tale. Highly recommended!
