  • Nice that season 3 started out so well

    Probably the best episode of season 3.



    Like S2, it seems S3 begins with more energy and focus than it winds up with midway thru.



    "Tender Soldier" is at the top of the season 3 heap: taut, dramatic, melancholy yet with a sense of real urgency and even intelligence.



    A local patrolman is killed by an S.L.A.-type 60s/70s military group, and Pepper takes an interest in the only member, a girl (Patty H.-esque?), the cops are able to catch in the beginning.



    By the end of the show, you think that the metaphorical title is WRONG, that the girl is no 'tender soldier' at ALL--- unless you realize after-the-fact that that title is, quite cleverly, really about Pepper herself.
