  • unbelivable character

    Interesting start of this episode. A man is robbing a bank with a ski mask on, and it appears a bank employee recognizes him, as she moves toward him. The robber hits her, and then shoots and kills a security guard. The woman, Kate, has seen her boyfriend, Dean, commit the crimes, but acts like she has not. Kate is an older,,physically unattractive woman, and Dean is a young, physically attractive man. Dean plays along, acting concerned about what happened to her. Kate finds Dean's young and physically attractive girlfriend, and this leads to Dean chasing Kate in a car chase. This leads to a pivotal policeman stops the chase, and Kate has the opportunity to tell the policeman about Dean. She lstays loyal to Dean and declines to tell the policeman the truth. Meanwhile, Stone and Keller find leads. The conclusion includes Dean telling Kate he was using her to set up the robbery, and her telling him she knew he took her to "Tthe Point " to kill her. She pulls a gun on him, and gets distracted by Stone and Keller, and so Dean and Kate struggle for the gun. Kate falls and is helpless, and as Dean runs away from Keller, Kate unbelievable yells for Dean to help her! Of course, he does not help her. Keller captures Dean. I thought this episode had great potential. It was somewhat hurt by the character of Kate. Her loyalty to Dean meant a lack of feeling for the security guard who was killed, and she could have turned Dean in. She was in a sense, just as cold as Dean. However, there was the angle that love made her blind, and she was a victim of Dean. I thought this episode would give the audience a strong reaction, one way or another about the character of Kate. With the promising storyline, a character that was not so one dimensional could have brought greatness to this episode.moreless
  • Plausibility out the window

    6.0
    Okay, if it's plausibility you're looking for, you'd best search somewhere else. We get no real inkling of why the Sheen character does what he does. On the plus side, there is some fun interaction between Stoney and Keller, like the "coffee money" scene. Oh yeah, and Mike manages to call Steve "buddy boy" TWICE within a single minute, while they're examining the security camera footage (I must say btw that that is some remarkably detailed videotape! lol).moreless
