One of Booker's best episodes
31 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is one of Booker's best and showcased his that he was more than what he was made out to be in the earlier part of Season 3. Although he could be a little inconsiderate to others (example-Fun with Animals) in "Nemesis" he is affected by the death of a student he was investigating who has been killed because his friends mistook him for a narc. Booker battles with himself and the choices he made and the episode clearly shows that he is a man of conscience and regret.

The episode shows a little background on Booker too-a little about his family and displays his struggles with his current girlfriend who constantly tells him the words he despises to hear: "I thought I knew you".

"Nemesis" is a very good episode for these reasons and more. For one-it uses a different ways of telling the story, with scenes that look like nightmares, with flashbacks and more.
