Great episode. This show gets better and better. And line for the night,"What's a crossbow doing on the bed." Answer: "It's okay, we're friends now."


Margo Martindale's usual 5star performance must be mentioned as making this another fine episode in a well crafted series. I enjoy the contrast/comparison between Finch and Reese, excellent acting and writing. I disliked Carter last year but so far this year, they have toned toned down the whiney self righteous attitude. Love Fusco's character, he has so many funny scenes. Always fine to see Amy Ackerman, believable sociopath. Look forward to the next episode.


Another fantastic episode!
No one gets into more fights than John and I love watching him kick butt every time, sometimes he gets beat up too but the other guys always end up worse!
I was so glad that Reese found Finch so quickly.
I liked when Carter told Fusco she would buy him a drink. Everyone has pushed him off as a bad/dirty cop but he should not be under estimated.
I was totally not expecting Root to be the blond girl, I am sure people out there saw it coming but not me!
Looking forward to 2 weeks from now...


Fantastic show!
Love the way it travels, on many different levels.
I really want John and the Lady cop to remain close, other wise things
wont get done.


@POI 1001 - Yup, you're right. Thanks for noticing. No idea why I put Sara down. All fixed!

@RandomCommentor - I like your take on the Flowers for Algernon reference. That's what is so great about stuff like that, it really gets people thinking about the story as a whole and that larger picture.


Great review. Just one thing, I think her name was Sam, not Sara.


Absolutely fantastic! This series delivers superb stories week after week since it began. And agreed - great review.


Fantastic Episode. The episode started out rather normally leading us to believe it was going to be cut and dry/black and white somewhat like the somewhat mediocre premiere, but then a very sharp turn. A case that even ties into the narrative of one of the show's arcs.

Amy Acker was amazing. Emerson was great as well, but his role was (rightly) more subtle, and he's pretty good at that stuff.

My only real beef was that more of this should have been in season premiere instead of the borderline implausible parts.

As for Flowers for Algernon, perhaps that's a double reference to Root knowing was really happened to the kidnapping and curse of doing so with her intelligence. She's close to the case, so if she did try to interfere more personally the police might be able to put the puzzle pieces together, so perhaps she doesn't risk it? Just one random tired take on that one, well put, reference.


Forget to thank you Sean, really great review.


Amazing Episode, 5 stars.
