An Interesting take on Justice Versus Vengeance
27 July 2008 | by (Indianapolis, Indiana) – See all my reviews

A blind woman becomes intent on killing the men who murdered her husband and uses the unsuspecting Buz and Tod as pawns in the process. This is a very thought provoking episode as it analyzes the thin line that there is between victim and perpetrator, justice and vengeance, as well as sympathy versus disdain. Tod and Buz are also forced to confront their All-American motives here as they find that sometimes being generous and helpful does not always lead to the desired results. The eventual showdown is filled with drama and irony.Hyer, as the blind woman, plays a great character. She overcomes her obvious disabilities with a steely determination that literally reaches out from the TV screen and slaps you across the face.
