You know what would have made the episode even better? If the opening scene contained a flash forward of the entire group in jail. And we got some kind of "24 Hours Earlier" scene right after that. Cut to the theme song, and it would have been perfect.
Nevertheless, this was a great episode. The entire group ending up in jail somehow was hysterical (even if it wasn't entirely realistic). The kid trying to find bravery was adorable and the tie in with Max being behind the whole thing was surprisingly unexpected.
Which is strange, because usually most of the things here are pretty predictable. I also liked how they incorporated the new set: the mall. Overall, great successful installment of True Jackson VP (as usual).
