  • Oh god!Aceveda!

    9.5
    Now what happened to Aceveda was shocking...it was hard to watch. But its so classic Shield intensity. I`m really curious to see how the character will develop after this.

    Meanwhile, Tevor is alive but in very bad condition, suffering from brain damage and still unconscious . Vic figures out Shane has something to do with this and they both try to find a way out of this mess. Well, is Tevor going to survive and how will he react...I cannot wait to see this.

    Looks like the number of rapes on old people is a big one, another delicate matter but that exist in real life.

    Also, the money train gain is causing some big worries for the strike team.

    Overall shocking but intense episode.moreless
  • This was one of the most intense plots for the character of David Acevada.

    9.2
    I remember seeing parts of this episode back before I was a huge fan of the show. I remembered the scene where Acevada gets... you know... so I sort of realized what was coming once he entered the house, but I was surprised at how intense the this story was despite the fact that I knew what was going ot happen. Besides David's plot line, I think this is turning out to be another pivotal episode in season 3. Vic is worried about Shane and Wymm's and Acevada always seem to be a step behind Mackey which is really nerve-wracking.moreless
  • The episode pick up immediately after Tavon's crash and builds its own 90-mile-an-hour momentum. The plot unspools at a breakneck pace, leaving the equivalent of a 10-car pileup in its wake. No one walks away unscathed...moreless

    9.5
    This is another episode that indelibly alters the lives of the characters. Claudette and Dutch are still hot on the trail of the Cuddling Rapist; Danny and Julien beat a stalker at his own game; Shana and Mara try to cover up their involvement in Tavon's injuries; some of the marked money train money shows up, inching Aceveda's investigation closer to a Strike Team tie-in. And Aceveda has a harrowing, life-changing run-in with a couple of perps.



    This one was a real nail-biter from beginning to end, an excellent installment that continues the mid-season momentum established in the last several episodes. I'm really happy I'm watching these on DVD- I don't know how I would live through a whole week waiting to watch the next episode.moreless
