A season 3 standout.
7 August 2007 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

From a convincing opening flashback of early Castro Cuba, to the satisfying melancholy ending, this episode is one of the more accomplished chapters in MV.

The first episode to revolve around Gina's back story, Sandra Santiago is able to showcase her singing skills making you wonder why it was PMT and DJ who release pop albums, not Santiago.

Strong acting and solid writing (despite yet another drug kingpin making another mindless decision for the sake of plot convenience) make this a great finish to an otherwise spotty season. The standout performance was Jeroen Krabbé who played Klaus Herzog, the avenging KGB agent with close ties to Gina's mother.

Despite the bad guy getting killed in an all-too-neat closure, it's worth recognizing that Crockett went through an entire episode without killing anyone!
