  • Very good

    9.0
    This was a very good episode, the best of the series to this point, as far as I'm concerned. On the one side, Drake's former CO is telling him he's Reid's lap dog. On the other side, Reid seems to be doing everything he can to confirm this notion. Drake seems to go over to the dark side for a time, and has to face his past demons.



    The final scenes were pretty difficult to watch as Drake releases the love birds that were intended for his love, the prostitute Rose.moreless
  • Terrific one

    9.0
    For me, this was the most moving episode so far. The whole episode was about Drake really, his background and his present problems, but that's more than ok, he's an interesting man :) I did find Reid quite annoying this ep, he had zero sympathy..
  • Excellent episode.

    Ripper Street gets better and better. Glen & Flynn give brilliant performances.
