Good but not great episode
23 January 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Compared to the top, this episode just doesn't stand out, but has relatively much "filler" material, and doesn't take advantage of its strongest moments.

On the positive side, we see gang member Kyle Murdock () again, which means the great character actor Dennis Fimple. But his part isn't really that big. He is often seen but not given much to work with.

The whole plot, with people lying about why the woman wants to kill her former boyfriend, gets pretty tedious. Heyes is sent back all the way back to town on a futile mission just to fill time. And did I mention that Kid Curry is missing in most of the episode, and even Heyes isn't a central character.

The episode would have gained much by exploiting the magical moment when she suddenly tries to kill the man she said she was there to save. That scene should have been a lot longer, leading us gently into seeing it coming, building suspense, and combining well-composed camera angles to see what happens. Instead it is just a quick bang-bang and the effect is lost.

It is still a decent AS&J episode, but far from the strongest.
