  • Not the Best episode

    I see a few fan reviews saying how this is a good episode. All I can think is how can people not see how bad it was? This is another episode proving just how dumb the characters in it are and how dumb the overall story is. It all relied on Oliva not turning around and telling the FBI everything he just said to her and she wouldn't have got in trouble for it because lawyers are allowed to inform police about impending crimes and Carols messages were obviously going to set them in motion. People will say oh but Carol sent someone after her last time she didn't help him so now she is scared for her life, sure she might be but she knows the legal system and knows the FBI would protect her and it's obvious helping Carol is just making things worst so the most obvious choice is to tell the FBI everything including what happened to her so they can hurry up and catch everyone and her information would help do that. Seriously the only way this show works and makes sense is if it turns out all the characters have some sort of brain damage which would explain why they make the stupidest moves possible.
