You're on my corner, Luther
28 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

A fine episode with two compelling story lines: the first follows Pembleton (Braugher) investigating his first case after the stroke and clashing with his partner Bayliss (Secor), before the two finally handle a suspect in the "Box" with their trademark slick tactics. In the second, Lewis (Johnson) and Munch (Belzer) confront slippery drug lord Luther Mahoney.

A great interrogation by the Frank/Tim duo and one of Lewis' best moments in the series are the highlights of this excellent season 5 episode.

8/10
