Freak Show (#4.8)
28 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The events go on as fast paced as usual.

This episode has some very interesting cases. Mainly the guy with reversed organs. His death was very sad to watch and the communication between Peter and the boy's dad was very well done. This was a bit of different Peter for me.

Also am curious what is in the letter Doug wrote. I first thought it was a marriage proposal. Must be something very serious as well as I believe it will come back in the next few episodes.

Lawyer Herb Spivak is a pretty hilarious character. he is the one who brought some laughter in this episode. Dan Hedaya did a great performance. Let's see how he will represent Mark now.
