Idk about this episode. It was a little shaky and fabricated for me. I am just a little hung up on why it was so easy for Reese to steal an enter truck. Another fault of this episode is when Reese got trapped at the apartment with the younger guy " this is only the beginning " Reese seems to always get out of those gun to head situations. If this were the second episode after the pilot I would have been worried about the success of the show but on the bright side Nolan knows how to close out a long episode. The closing scene made up for all the other soft scenes. Since this isn't the first or second episode ill take it.
Excellent episode, adding depth as it goes. The question of Reese's loss of 'humanity'--he clearly still has a code of ethics, and has at least intellectual empathy (cf, episode with the young female physician who was plotting a revenge murder); but if his actions, not just his absence, contributed to the death of his ex-girlfriend (as is being intimated), there is the question of how deeply that closed his heart. The subtlety of Jim Caviezel's voice and wry expressions--difficult to imagine anyone else inhabiting that role as well. Hats off to Jonathan Nolan for creating a show that is more than superficially engaging.
Relieved that this is not going to just be about one bad guy. I like the show so is a sure kiss of death.
