  • Good episode, but not as great as it could have been.

    8.7
    This time we learn more about Paul & we finally get to meet his wife. It's a big change because until now all the episodes have been about Rebecca. I hope we get to learn more about the other characters.



    I loved how it seemed that the murderer might go after Paul's wife, not once but twice, which was pretty cool. I'm only sad that Paul & his wife lost the baby.



    And the end was totally awesome. It looks like the team have a new boss. What will become of Webster. Frankly I was surprised that he payed a woman to lie under oath so that they could win the case.moreless
  • References to Buffy/Angel in this ep...?

    7.5
    Not a bad episode. Only screened in Australia last week. I wonder what the specific references to Buffy or Angel were supposed to be, if any. I may have missed something. The only things that jumped out as similarities were:



    1) Removing hearts as the Gentlemen do in the brilliant Buffy episode "Hush."



    2) The romantic music, petals leading up to the bedroom, etc. where man finds woman dead instead of a romantic encounter, is how Giles found Jenny after Angelus killed her.



    3) The line about being the "puppet in shining armour" reminds me of the Angel episode "Smile Time" when Angel was turned into a puppet.



    Does anyone know any others, or if there was a planned reference in this episode?moreless
  • Good episode. We finally learn something about someone other than Rebecca.

    8.8
    It was nice to see a episode that's not totally about Rebecca. As much as I like her, I was afraid the show was going to be all about her without us getting to know the other characters. I don't really care for Paul, But he was great in this episode. There were some great parts in this episode. I loved it when Paul thinks his wife is dead when he shows up at his house, Due to the roses and the champagne, But only to see her there. It was sad and unexpected to see her lose her baby though. I didn't expect the navy guy to show up and try to kill Pope, But when he did and Paul was about to let him, Was great stuff. I was hoping Paul would have let him kill Pope, Kinda street justice, But Rebecca had to meddle. I didn't expect Pope's girl to get shot, But it came off well. The ending was a shocker too.moreless
  • This was it! This was the episode I was waiting for!

    9.0
    When I reviewed this series as a whole, it was before I saw this episode. Many of the disappointments I expressed then were addressed here, in this one sensational episode.



    The gasp I've been waiting for, was here. The plot was a tad contrived, but it was handled nicely and it certainly surprised me. The last 60 seconds was maybe one step over the top, but it really didn't detract from the episode. Overall, I was delighted in the twists and turns.



    The big payoff was in the character development. Ryan got his edge and it was played perfectly and believeably -- just enough to complicate him without materially changing his character. And Coyote scores again, elevating Webster into a genuine enigma reminiscent of the Cigarette Smoking Man.



    This show is delivering nicely.moreless
  • Didn't really like this one.

    7.5
    I’ll be honest: I really didn’t enjoy this episode. I didn’t like the characters, the story and Paul’s role in it. The only thing I liked about this episode was the guest appearance from Michelle Forbes. I think she’s an amazing actress.

    And what about the ending? Is this the end of Virgil Webster?

    • Paul: Things are gonna change around here, as far as you and I are concerned. Because I'm done being the heart you never had or your puppet in shining armor or whatever. You will treat with me respect due my ability as an special agent who has served this bureau for 10. And who has tolerated you longer than most.
      Web: You're right about one thing. Things are going to change.
