Has to be the best episode of the series
1 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not an avid watcher of this show but I caught this episode on last week after midnight on the TNT Network. And I must say I could not turn it off, I like when the killers are smart and basically admit that they did it but cannot be fingered for the crime because of loop wholes in the law. I think the acting was great especially the guest appearance of John Billingsley who played George Marks (the suspect) If you like this show I'd strongly suggest catching this episode if you haven't already.

I checked the spoiler alert because I did not catch it from the beginning, I don't know if I gave anything away that was not disclosed at the beginning. (Better to be safe than sorry)
