Revealing and Perfect
21 August 2007 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Expertly written, directed, and acted 'Cara Fitzgerald' is a magnificent one-hour masterpiece. Deep, dark secrets are revealed in an emotional storm of information. The final scenes are incredibly moving, and Julian McMahon gives an amazing performance (as always). Sean and Christian must decide what to do when one of their operations lets a child molester continue his practice. Matt also goes through incredible conflict when he and another friend hit a young girl from their school and leave the scene of the crime without realizing what they had done. He puts himself in a strange situation when he tells the girl's mother that he is in Prayer club with Cara, but he takes drastic measures to ensure Cara's well-being. John Hensley really shows off his acting chops to the max in this amazing Nip/Tuck episode.
