I swear to you, there's a guy that looked just like me. Now maybe he did it.
Well, let me guess: your twin brother, right? Come one, Cassidy, you can do better than that.

This time David winds up in the same town as Mike Cassidy, a master criminal who is his physical double. Mike has just pulled off a big heist, and his rivals are looking to take the loot from him, so he decides to trick them into going after David instead. It's certainly a contrived premise, but it works, and this episode plays it up with plenty of plot twists. Bixby of course plays Mike Cassidy, and proves to be one of the best Hulk villains so far. Rather than hamming it up, Bixby imbues the character with a consistent and disturbing coldbloodedness.
On the downside, the subplot with Mike's ex-girlfriend isn't played well. Her motives seem starkly inconsistent. More amusingly, towards the end she has a critical "him or him" moment as she thinks back over her memories of Mike and David, but because of the nature of her "relationship" (or lack thereof) with David, all her memories of him are him saying "You've made a mistake! I'm not Mike!"
"Broken Image" is still an overall winner with a solid pace and Bixby pulling off both roles exquisitely. This episode also has what is quite possibly the best cliffhanger of the series yet: "Banner! You're alive!" That one gave me chills.
