Overall strong episode
3 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

I agree with the other reviewer - I'm not sure why this script was made into the first episode after the initial pilot. If this script was supposed to define Stone, it made him out to be somewhat emotionally unstable. I always thought this should have been aired later in the season.

But the script does allow Keller to be mature and not stereotypically green. It also showed the respect the two characters had for one another.

Two scenes to watch for: 1) at the police station featuring extensive dialogue between Douglas and Malden as they walk down the hallway discussing the case. It's done in one shot to perfection. And 2) the chase scene at the Bart station. Extremely well paced and suspenseful.

Nice epilogue. Plus the use of Eileen Heckart was great - what a wonderful actress she was.

Strong points outweigh the weak, so I would give it an overall favorable rating.
