  • Jack breaks the rules at times

    In order for the team to look for the father and two kids

    Jack has to bend the rules in order to find this family

    Sometimes it comes at the expense of Danny, Samantha, Vivian, and Martin

    But even though they have those differences, they admire his tough and no-nonsense way of trying to make sure justice is done.
  • A family is missing (the father and 2 teen kids), so the team has to work harder to find them.

    This time, three people were missing, so everyone seemed to me like working alone. This family had a really hard time in their life, because of the mother's death. So when the boy witness a murder the run away. Our FBI team has to pull up the pieces, i have to tell i agree with the reviwer that said there was a lot of information to us to pull togheter. At least this tragic event keep the members of the family closer than they used to. I really like Danny's character, because his sense of humor, despite everything he'd been thru. Hope he finds a good girl next season, and i hope it's not Samantha.moreless
  • The Giordano Family (A widowed father and his son and daughter) have vanished. The look of the family home when Jack and his team arrive suggests at least one family member was the victim of foul play.moreless

    In my opinion this episode is the best of the season. A terrific script, along with the show's top notch cast help make the episode enjoyable from beginning to end. Great plot twists and turns keep you hooked all the way and a lot of suspense is another contributing factor. I'm sure the episode's final scenes are meant to set up a story line that will continue to future episodes. Considering how great this episode is, I can hardly wait to see what happens next!moreless
  • Another great episode

    Goodness, I'm surprised there is only one review on this episode! I thought it another great episode. Tho, I can not remember the plot totally.lol. I know it was shown Thursday, so i'll try my best. The boy witnessed a crime, and thus became the target of a hitman that the boy, the father and the sister had to run. Of course the team try to figure out what is going on. I thought Jack was great in this episode. I'm glad he was not intimidated by a low-life criminal who I think was the one who ordered the hit. It was so awesome how Jack beat the crap out of the guy and spat at him at the end. I rooted for him, "woah Jack, all right!,whoohoo." I hope they go back to the Martin storyline though, they can not just drop his addiction, not very realistic. Other than that, it was a good episode. I can not wait what the season finale has in store for us. Keep watching this show!moreless
  • Not bad but not great

    A little hard to really get in to story. Too much was happening. I didn't really believe the story with the boyfriend. If he really didn't care about her why did he give her his pager and keep calling her. The whole scene with the boy witnessing the shooting was hard to believe.
