You were expecting maybe Clint Eastwood?

This episode goes back to the double story.

In one, Edward Woodward is going up against the KGB station chief (Jaroslav Stremien) in New York. He had his informant (Joe Silver) of 15 years killed, and is now after the daughter (Melissa Leo).

Robert Joy (Dr. Sid Hammerback in "CSI: NY, AVPR: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem) screws up and has to redeem himself with Woodward. Not an exciting scene, but effective.

In the second job, Woodward is helping a teen (J.D. Roth) being bullied by thugs (Jorge Noa). He helps the boy stand up for himself.

Fair episode, but little excitement.
