Waxer Returns
11 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Waxer returns from the pilot episode in the ninth episode of the second season entitled "You Ought to Be in Prison" as he intends to get revenge towards Officer Tom Hanson,who apparently is assigned to protect a Hollywood star.The escaped murderer does this by kidnapping both of them.The crew gets into action to save both and bring back Waxer into prison.

There is nothing really refreshing in the episode but nevertheless it is fun to have the viewers get reminded of what happened in the pilot.Also,we get another episode that has Hanson as central to the story as the producers get to capitalize on Johnny Depp as the star of the show.
