Well Set Up
23 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are a number of things that are put forth to set up the conclusion. We have a series of events that center around a power plant. It involves two men, one a psychotic, who go around avenging themselves on people who anger them. We are introduced to a female constable who butts heads with Frost over her use of technology while his filing systems are the archaic paper pile that often ends up on the floor. The episode ends with a gun being pointed at Frost during a bank heist which is unrelated to the larger plot. We also have the eternal triangle, with the death of a husband and the finger being pointed at his two-timing wife.
