  • Boring

    The case this episode was so boring, and i dont really care for Neal and Sara, there is no chemistry between them.
  • Finally some Diana action

    I've enjoyed this episode more than the first two, just because I was glad the writers decided to let Marsha Thomason have more time on screen which gave us a chance to know more about her character... and a little bit of her acting skills.

    The case was okay, but not what we're used to see, with Neal and Peter in action and finding out ideas and ways of getting their way.

    So the manifest is out of Neal's hands and I still wonder if Peter knew if Neal was trying to get to it. Maybe Agent Matthews didn't fall for Neal's charms? We'll learn soon.

    Now, Sara... is she really necessary? Neal was better off alone. Now she's just a filler.moreless
