  • A very enjoyable episode to finish off season 2.

    This episode has plot twists and elements of Columbo in that Keller and Stone must question suspects usually found in the show featuring the shabby detective with the cigar and mac. Much like Columbo, Etta Randolph is quite charming at first but becomes more abrupt as Stone questions her. This episode has a great car chase shot not in the usual hilly streets but one that looks more like a rally as the cars splash through large puddles with a suprise stunt at the end. Also, look out for Michael Douglas nearly falling over a chair as he looks around Etta Randolphs home. The epilog is interesting to note in that could those gold watches signify that Etta Randolph was making plans to get them fired as the producers did not know whether a 3rd season would have been made?
