  • Excellent episode.

    Sully has been slowly descending in alcoholism and increasingly so since the death of his step-son and wife and finally culminates in the kidnapping of Sully to a cabin on the outskirts of New York so that Sully can dry. What happens is a terrifying journey of a man that is clearly broken down and is finally confronting them.

    What I loved about this episode is that most of the cast was not involved in the episode and only 4 members of the cast were involved, but it was definitely the most powerful episode, as it not only dealt with the ramifications that were felt early on in season 4, but also with events that had happened prior to the start of the series, mainly the death of Davis' dad, who was Sully's former partner. I also liked how there was a bit more background to Bosco's family and one got a bit of an understanding of why Bosco was the way he was.

    I also liked the episode due to the fact that it ended the Tatiana story-line, and while it wasn't exactly a happy ending, it was concluded and one got the impression that Sully was finally able to face his demons, both personally and professionally.moreless
  • Scully needs help. It comes from predictable scources such as Davis and Doc. But even Bosco feels the need to help. They find that this helps not only Scully but those that help out are shown ways that this helps them in ways they never thought.moreless

    This episode showed the strong binds between characters on this show that are rarely found on any show. The portrayal of a man dealing with withdrawals is done perfectly by Scully (Skipp Sudduth). Davis (Coby Bell) shows just how helpless we can feel when trying to help someone who can in the end only help themself.But, perhaps, the most tense dramatic moments were between Bosco (Jason Wiles) and Scully. Bosco dealing with demons of his family\'s past showing that both he and Scully bonding in a way only two hurt people can but not changing the dynamic of their bitter sarcastic repore with each other. Doc\'s (Michael Beech) reaction to what has happenend to a man he\'s known for over 15 years shows perfectly the surprise people have when they realize how well or how little we know the people we come into contact with almost daily. My biggest suprise is that this show was not at least nomintated for an Emmy. It was definetely a peformance deserving of one.moreless

      Sully: You want to help me? You want to stand behind me not matter what? Then you should know who I am.

    • {to Davis}
      Sully: Your old man, he said I was pushing this guy into a corner he couldn't get out of and it wasn't smart. But seeing as how he was supporting two families and stealing every dollar he could get his hands on, I didn't think he was a good person to take advice from!

      Davis: No, it was me! And Tatiana died when they killed her son. Had nothing to do with you. Her life caught up with her. And my dad…was a grown man, and he was standing next to you in that park for the same reason I'm standing here right now.

    • Davis:That's where he was supposed to be, next to his partner. I'm not leaving. This is where I belong and it's not because of you, it's because of me…We're partners. We're family.
