Finally, a concise episode!
26 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

So far, it's been very hard to see the point to this season. The case was uninteresting, the drama scattered. Even when there was a truly impressive scene, such as the shoot out before, the rest of the episode felt completely scattered. Last week's episode was a step in the right direction, but now, finally, we have an episode worthy of the first season.

The first half of the episode deals mostly with Farrel. May his moustache rest in peace. This was good, as he has been the most interesting part of the season so far. Farrel's performance is really what sells this whole section.

Then, the gang infiltrates a prostitution ring tied to Caspere by sending in McAdams in disguise. Not only was this a wonderfully intense and disturbing sequence, but it revealed a shocking and interesting piece of back story for her character. Overall, the directing on this episode was stellar. It was the first episode to feel clear, concise, and consistently intriguing.
