Jarrod is out-of-character in this awkward episode.
29 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

The writers were always looking for a episode that they could feature Jarrod (Richard Long) as the main character. But with the character being a lawyer it was always difficult to feature Jarrod without someone being accused of a crime somewhere along the way. In this show they go well off track as Jarrod seems almost berserk as he goes on a rampage against a man he thinks killed his new wife.

Yes, Jarrod actually gets married to a young woman named Beth. It only last a short time until Beth is shot by a man that Jarrod believes is someone he sent to jail sometime back named Cass Hyatt. He now becomes enraged to the point of finding Cass Hyatt and killing him in cold blood. Jarrod follows Cass into a town named Rimfire where Cass has been placed in jail for intoxication.

Jarrod bribes the local sheriff into releasing Cass into the street of Rimfire. Jarrod is waiting as Cass exits the jail. With Jarrod in a wild state of mind a confrontation is imminent.

This was so far off the regular demeanor of Jarrod Barkley that the episode did not makes sense. We all know that Nick is the hot-head, Heath is the quiet one and Jarrod is the level headed lawyer. It seemed that this script was written for another show and another character and not for Jarrod Barkley.

Never could get into the script. Was dissatisfied in the entire episode.
