  • Family secrets

    Ok.. That one was not too good but not bad either. I think ti was how many dirty secrets can one normal looking family have and hide and think that this will do the job but as seen - the son did know what was going on and who knows - maybe that was what pushed him into the drug way.. and Danny has to deal with his family too. And I really think that was a good twist as he has been a mysterious man with changed name from day one and got trough much and the last episode did impacted him..
  • George leaves his wife's salon to make a bank deposit. When he disappears, family secrets come to light that might explain what happened to him. In another story line, Danny\'s brother is up for parole and he is reluctant to stand up for him.

    This episode was a very dark and difficult one to watch. The Stanleys are a typical family dealing with a painful secret. It is revealed that their teenage son Sean has a drug habit, and Karen the mother was attacked and raped 8 years ago. George was fired from his job when he got into a fight with his co-workers. The Stanley family is coming apart at the seams. The team is very aggressive with the Stanleys, and Jack\'s poker face is hard at work in his questioning of Karen and Sean. The Stanleys had a bad habit of burying and ignoring bad memories instead of dealing with them. That bad habit slowly eroded the foundation of their family until it all caved in on them. There were a few twists and surprises in this episode. I did like the way so many loose ends were tied up in the last 10 minutes. I felt relief for both Karen and George eventhough they still faced an uphill legal battle. Danny has a change of heart about his brother when he is faced with the truth about his father.
