It also shows us how important real-world issue tie-ins can be to good TV stories, and how the media both reflect society and allow society a place to "think out loud", as it were. This one deals with identity theft, date-rape drugs and (yet again) the best balance between stopping bad behavior and angry punishment. If you had all this done to you, what would YOU do abot it? Jamie gets shot at by a man who drugged her, then dumped her into the ocean to die, and all she does to him is beat him at a one-sided pillow fight. Lisa steals Jamie's identity, betrays the US and tries to kill Oscar, and all Jamie uses her bionics for is to prove she's the REAL Bionic Woman. We never see how hard she clamps down on the hand of the man who buys her a drink, then assumes she's his, but once again, it couldn't have been very hard. Especially as compared to what she does to a similarly determined bozzo in a Season Three episode, this is a pretty low-impact way to make the point that you can't buy somebody's love.
