Some back-story for Gina
1 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This, the final episode of season three, opens in early '60s Cuba where Gina's mother goes on stage to sing; she is shot and killed by Orrestes Pedrosa, an army officer... her lover, an East German Intelligence officer swears that he will kill the murderer. Jumping forward just over twenty years Switek is taking surveillance photographs of Pedrosa's house when he sees somebody else doing exactly the same thing. Castillo asks a few questions of other agencies and it becomes apparent that the mystery man is the same East German who swore to kill Pedrosa all those years before. Around the same time Castillo is learning this from the FBI, Gina is learning it from the man himself; Klaus Herzog, he also tells her about her mother and why he intends to kill Pedrosa. Later on the team are told that Herzog is to be arrested on sight be Gina continues to meet him and at his suggestion gets a job at a jazz club to lure Pedrosa out... the only real question now is will Herzog kill Pedrosa or will he be brought to justice by Gina!

This episode was a fine conclusion to the excellent third season; it was nice to have a bit of back-story for Gina even if it did rely on quite a large coincidence to bring her and her mother's ex together. Miami Vice regular Saundra Santiago did a fine job as Gina; managing to carry the episode and show that she has a decent singing voice. Guest star, Dutch actor, Jeroen Krabbé did a fine job as STASI agent Herzog. While there wasn't a huge amount of action things still remained tense and what action there was, was pretty good... even if the blood stain an a bad guy's white jacket looked laughably small for a gunshot victim.
