This was a very good episode of The Pretender. The "powers that be" included some very good story lines, including one of the best single episode Jarod stories of the third season.
The talk show host with his conspracies, the hunting down from Pavlov, Jarod's connection to everything, Jarod's stories about The Centre on the air, plus everything from The Centre, makes this an above average episode. Though the actual series development to the main story lines was minimal, besides the whole Miss Parker/Thomas thing, overall, it was worth watching. That is why I would recommend this episode PTB as one to watch.
