Lust, Greed, Blackmail, and Betrayal. And Kim Delaney as a clever girl!
13 May 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This crypt episode "The Sacrifice" clearly ranks as one of the better because of the many themes and the scheming plot it has by fooling and surprising everyone at the end. Starting out as an insurance scheme with Kevin Kilner as an agent with a plan to overthrow an L.A. penthouse tycoon type with the real prize awaiting not only just the money but his attractive and elegant wife(Kim Delaney). The plan seems to work out, but wait a new character enters played by veteran Michael Ironside, and three is a crowd in money plans and relationships! So soon guilt is felt for one, as the plan is perfect for the new guy in town that's the Ironside character. This episode is also memorable for the sexy scenes provided by Kim Delaney and her performance was good to the very end her character was so clever to keep the plot concealed to the very end. Remember guys be careful it teaches the old moral lesson watch out for greedy women especially when it comes to love and money!
