Episode Summary

Jack and the team search for teenager William Hope, who goes missing in a very bad neighborhood after a confrontation with a local bully. Considered a good kid, William was living in a foster home after 18 months on the street and seemed destined for a better life when he disappeared. The squad discovers that his older brother Aaron, recently released from juvenile hall, visited William, despite the fact that his foster family forbade Aaron from being in their home. Jack and the others then learn that William was seen getting into a car with Aaron immediately prior to disappearing, and they fear that the good kid may have gone bad.moreless

  • Not the best they have done

    When they advertised this serie, they said it will be a fast paced and usually it is but this episode. It seemed to be about everything else than speed. Maybe it is a cultural thing the problem they wanted to focus on this episode what in Europe is not so wide spread or not that kind of major problem and that's why I did not get it but for me, this episode was little cold, far and slow.

    There were bright moments - the family keep together from those children. They were all out there, all different but they stick together.moreless
  • Excellent

    When a white kid goes missing everyone looks for him, it's on the news & everyone cares, but when a black kid goes missing nobody cares & everyone assumes that he's a bad kid, got himself into trouble with drugs or a gang or something.

    This episode was about just that. Only the social worker believes that William hasn't done anything wrong & may be in danger. The team look for him and don't realise that he's been under hteir noses the whole time & have even talked to him.moreless
