  • Solid Episode

    9.0
    I found this to be one of the more enjoyable episodes of the season and a major improvement over She Sells Sanctuary. The death of a company CEO and the poisoning of several other staff members at a posh celebration dinner leaves IIB with plenty of work to do. They have to first figure if the death was murder and then have to sort through the people in the protest group, one of whom disguised himself as a waiter and disrupted the proceedings.



    As the investigation unfolded and attention turned to the Pharmaceutical company 's staff, an entirely different motive and suspect list emerged.



    The plot was well written and the process of the investigation unfolding had solid elements that kept my interest piqued throughout. The Sandy, Oz and Elyse side story meshed nicely with the main plot and came to what I thought was a perfect conclusion.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Sandy: It's about you and Elyse?
      Oz: You know? I mean, not that there's anything to know. Nothing happened. It almost did, but I, I couldn't go through with it.
      Sandy: Why not?
      Oz: Because I would've rather been at The Leafs game with somebody else.
      Sandy: But I don't get it. She's beautiful, she's smart, she doesn't have to pretend to like hockey like I do. What could you possibly not like about her?
      Oz: Yeah, now that you mention it. But, she's not you.
      Sandy: Can we try this again?

    • Toby: Leafs game tonight at Freddies?
      Oz: Yeah, playing the Penguins?
      Toby: Two days.
      Oz: OK.
      Toby: Bruins tonight.
      Oz: Ugh, Bruins! I'll be crying into my beer by the second period.
      Toby: No crying. We own them tonight.

    • Dev Clark: All I know is that's motive and opportunity.
      Toby: All we need is evidence.
      Dev Clark: Exactly. You're getting good at this.

    • Alvin Klein: (discussing Thomas Vallance) Well, he hid the results of the Jannex trials, he was at war with Brandt, he was sleeping with the guy's wife. How much more do we need?
      Toby: Proof.
      Alvin Klein: (laughs) Who brought him in here?
      Michelle: You did.
