  • When a man is marked for murder after innocently having his name used in a mailing racket, McCall assembles a team of contacts to steak out the group behind the scam and let it be known that McCall's client is innocent. Interesting but not perfect...moreless

    I'm not really sure how to sum up this episode. It is an interesting one, with McCall assembling a team of his contacts (three of whom we already know – Jimmy, Sterno and Mickey, as well as introducing Robin Curtis as Ginger) to tackle the case. McCall himself takes a back seat for much of the story.



    But sadly, the interesting concept of all of McCall's street contacts being assembled together is not is not enough alone for the episode to work. The pacing is a little off, and a couple of scenes drag a little.



    The story starts off interestingly enough, with a doorman being murdered, and dragging himself to the innocent man's apartment to warn him that he's next. But I felt that the story after that wasn't one of the best executed, and didn't quite live up to the premise.



    The episode also introduces Saul Rubinek as Jason Masur, a smug, slimy member of The Agency who doesn't like McCall and is gunning for Control's position.



    All-in-all, I like what they were going for with this story, and appreciate the episode offers something a little different. It doesn't come off as a bad episode, but at the same time, areas of it could have been a bit better.moreless
