Very good episode that probes into Crockett's psyche
9 August 2007 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I completely agree with the comments posted by burnett33160 regarding this episode and on Season 4 (so far). I'm only 3 episodes in and up until now I'm impressed by the producers attempts to go a lot deeper with their characters and with the show's plot lines.

It might even be argued that this episode reflects a certain amount of contempt the MV creative team may have had for it's audiences' appetite for violence that made the show successful in its first 3 seasons. Season 4, up until now, has distanced itself from the corny shootouts and violent denouements that had become clichéd by the end of season 3; in their place are slightly ambiguous endings that leave the audience with questions as opposed to black and white absolutes/resolution.
