  • Very Good

    It never surprises me of the amount of work and creativity they put into each episode, and this one was no different. Reese trying to find out more information on Finch and Finch's now deceased best friend son is looking for answers what his father did in the last project before he died (Still don't know what really happen to him). A clue was a wine cork wrapped in a note saying the machine first started 2005. While all that is going on Reese still investigate the case about a boy that lost is guardian to a gun shot wound to the chest and he is looking to get revenge. Reese gives him a couple of lesson in life and bonds with the kid. All very touching and powerful, the flow of the story went well. It surprises me all this fitted in 42mins.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Reese: I've never seen you like this. That hacker must have gotten to you.
      Finch: Only the paranoid survive. Sage advice.

    • Reese: Morning, Detective. Miss me?
      Carter: You know, I always pictured you in the back of my car... in handcuffs.
      Reese: Well, to each his own.

    • Reese: Witnesses can ID the shooters. They're just too scared.
      Finch: Why would they want to talk to you?
      Reese: I have my ways.

    • Andre: 'Cause being a superhero's not about a cape or a cowl. It's about protecting your fellow man, looking out for him when no one else will.

    • Reese: Never said I was a cop.
      Darren: So, what are you, then?
      Reese: One of these days I'll have to come up with a good answer for that one.

    • Reese: The higher up you go, the harder it gets to tell the good guys from the bad.

    • Darren: Sorry I thought you were a cop.
      Reese: Nothing wrong with cops... just bad ones.

    • Reese: Finch, Darren's run off, probably to go after Brick again. And this time he's got the gun they used to kill his brother.
      Finch: In other words, the idea of letting a 14-year-old hire you to avenge his brother has backfired?
      Reese: You can lecture me later. Right now I need you to bring me the bag.
      Finch: Which bag?
      Reese: The one labeled "Plan B."

    • Andre: I don't blame you. I blame the store. Kids spending their days reading these revenge stories, selling it like it's reality, but you know the thing about comic books? They're just comics.

    • Reese: You know, Lionel... you could have been a good cop if not for a few bad choices.

      Fusco: You got me snooping around your boss, but I make bad choices?
      Reese: Man has a point.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Title:

      Referencing the manga Lone Wolf and Cub, first published in 1970. Ogami Ittō, the Shogun's former executioner, wanders the land hunting down the members of the clan that killed his wife and village. He pushes his three-year-old son Daigorō along in a baby carriage as he travels through Japan.

    • Thug #1: You trying to get yourself killed, Scrappy Doo?

      Referencing Scrappy Cornelius Doo, the nephew of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon character Scooby Doo who was introduced in 1979. Voiced primarily by Don Messick, Scrappy was originally the polar opposite of his uncle: short and feisty, rather than tall and cowardly.
