Any profession that requires wearing a type of mask that must be sealed around the face would not allow the wearing of long side burns or beards because the mask cannot seal properly on facial hair. However, Ron Eldard was filming the movie "Sleepers" at the same time of this episode and he had changed his appearance for his character in "Sleepers". See more »

The Secret Sharer (#2.8)
29 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Now that Doug is the city's hero all the worries about the character having to leave that we had 2 episodes ago can be forgotten. I was actually a bit surprised he had some issues with Mark as well, so was confused about this storyline for the most part. Except I really did like the end.

Am also very happy to see Carter and Harper being back on dating. It is amazing how cute those characters are when together. Besides the two it seems that Peter might have more happening with Jeanie.

We get to see a bit more about Susan's dad now that he ants to babysit little Susie, it is good separated him a bit from the team with their mother who is some nasty woman.
