  • Prison escape or foul play?

    This was a great episode from season 3. The summary given is good--a woman contacts the FBI because she doesn't believe her brother escaped from prison (with 2 weeks to go before his parole) and suspects he was murdered by the guards. This episode is about whether or not people really can and do change, and Jack Malone has to admit he is wrong. (doesn't happen often!) The ending is kind of implausible, but the script is well-written and the show very well-acted, especially by Jeremy Davidson as James Mac Avoy, the prisoner in question. The scriptwriter is a woman, and seems to have a fresh approach to the subject matter.
