It wasn't poor but there were a couple plot holes. I'd have thought the producer/director/editor would get better at spotting them.

Agree, there were lots of points that defy reality in this episode...but it's so much fun to watch you don't mind while it's happening.

No, they never would have walked him along NYC sidewalks in the daytime wearing a hood.

No, the guy wouldn't have survived the rifle shot.

And so on....

BTW - it's the second series to use the trade secret that all police/miltary trained dogs don't take english commands. All are raised & trained in europe with either german or dutch commands. Criminals generally then are not able to call them off.

The episode was great.The Snow-Lady spy thing is about to explode into something big.
The main storyline had everything going for it except the lesbian couple chemistry.Both looked uncomfortable,awkward and their interaction was completely forced.One side question:is it required that one half of lesbian couple should always have that short haired-psuedo cowboy looks?Its so cliched.
On another note, looks like Leon will come back into the show along with zoey and we will have all of them helping out reese-finch when hell breaks loose.

Thinking a lesbian storyline is inappropriate is not "homophobia." The promotion of the homosexual agenda is tiresome. Take the show "Touch" for example...they had 2 very beautiful Asian lesbians...this somehow doesn't ring true. I've worked with several lesbains, and they are fine workers and fine people, but have rarely seen a lesbian look like these two. Anyhoo...like I said at least 50%, possibly more, of this country is not comfortable with the whole gay marriage, gay agenda thing. Another annoying point in this episode is where Reese shoots the sniper, point blank with a high powered sniper rifle...there is no body armor in the world that would stop that round at that range...the sniper would be dead with a big hole in his chest even if he was wearing steel plates.

Reviewer, I am sure you didn't mean to say "extract" revenge, when the proper phrase is to "exact" revenge, still, I thought your review covered most of the bases, but failed to note how well the show dealt with the lesbian couple at it's center. I find the homophobic comments ridiculous, as saying that they were "Hollywood" lesbians or somehow too good looking to be gay, or that they chose women because male gays offend audiences more that females do (which is wrong, look at the show "Scandal" with Cyrus and his journalist husband who are openly gay)doesn't make sense. Gays and lesbians come in all shapes and sizes and levels of "beauty" just like everyone else. Of course a TV show is going to have better looking people than reality because it is TV...everyone is good looking, for the most part. I doubt there was any agenda beyond trying to make good drama with attractive people, like most TV shows. This was a great episode, and I enjoyed it, especially Finch and his near-faint in the OR.

To clarify I am heterosexual but I have no problem with gay people.

This was a great episode. It had all the elements that makes this show great. To all the people complaining about the gay storyline, it is sad that this day in age people are still so narrow minded.

did anyone else notice that reese & finch took leon outside with the bag on his head in broad daylight? I mean the director really should have caught that

Great episode - loved the return of Leon - funny, annoying character. I don't believe he asked did any of the money show up from "the dog" - gross!

I found the main storyline enjoyable, although I don't think POI needed to add the lesbian twist. Westley is a great nemesis for Reese.

Love the doggie and it is so cool when he responds to Dutch - very cool.

Very interested to see where the lady is going with the man trapped to the bomb - ....

It would be virtually impossible for every episode of every series to be a perfect 10. Though P.O.I. comes as close as it gets week after week. While not the best in the series, it's still better not at it's best to better anything else on television. And I mean anything.
