  • A shoot and a miss . . . (bad joke I know)

    I think it was Carl Jung who observed that the primitive psyche doesn't invent myth, it experiences myth. In this episode we get a sniper who is inventing a myth of himself. There's nothing wrong, per se, with this episode but it remains a frustrating episode and even at the end the killer remains a cipher.



    The Lou Handleman subplot was - obviously - going nowhere but it's unfortunate to see it resolved so shoddily and suddenly. Shoot to Kill aims high and misses; the structure of the episode is fine, the pacing is fine, even the process of unraveling the myth is fine. It's a bit to much of a mcguffin though - overly elaborate and complex. If anything, the episode's weakness is the rapid denouement of both key stories - Bailey shoots the sniper, Lou Handleman shoots himself. Its unsatisfying.moreless
