Anyone know where I can get the soundtrack to this episode??? I've looked everywhere i could on the net but I couldn't find anything. This episode was very good as it brought together different agents that McCall has worked with in his past. Mickey was exceptionally good in this episode. It's also good that it shows no matter how much power you have, you don't want to mess with Robert McCall e.g. there is a part when the boss of the company (Jason) turns up at McCall's place wondering why all his agents are working on a case not that he did not authorise. That scene is pretty good as McCall just puts him in his place. The lesson of the day is DO NOT MESS WITH THE EQUALIZER!! I wonder what would happen if the Equalizer with up against Crockett and Tubbs!!
