Little Girl


Tru has a hellish first day as free med school student, being embarrassed by Professor Seidel, while Davis fears he'll loose his job after the office's regular psychological assessor is replaced by Dr. Carrie Allen, brother Harrison 'Harry' Davies refuses a job offer from dad Richard but is about to lose his present one as delivery driver when his truck is stolen, and it ends when Metro Police harbor cop Kate Wilson asks her help on the morgue slab, but worst of all Jack Harper is back after months, and takes orders from no lesser then dad Davies. It looks like Jack is not one step ahead -like smart helpful Davis, who accidentally saves himself- but two at every count, he even warns the students whose boat will capsize in a white squall not to believe Tru and first has Kate 'rescue' him so he can thank her by a lunch date... Harry finds the hidden perils in his job, and makes a radical decision... Written by KGF Vissers

When Davis is undergoing his psych assessment, the (one!) card shown to him for his Rorschach test keeps turning upside down (or "changing orientation" if you prefer!). Come on - that's pretty basic. See more »

First, the disappointments: I don't like how they wrote off A.J. Cook's character, Tru's best friend Lindsay. After the departure of Jessica Collins (Tru's sister) and Matthew Bomer (Tru's boyfriend - OK, at least that was done for dramatic purposes), Lindsay's absence means that Tru will have little to no personal life anymore. Plus, A.J. Cook was attractive and had an easygoing chemistry with Eliza Dushku. Now, the strengths: Jason Priestley continues to impress with his masterful portrayal of the suave, friendly, manipulative and remorseless Jack Harper. The Life vs. Death teams become clear in this episode: Tru, Davis and Harrison vs. Jack and Tru's father. But what I liked more than anything else in "The Perfect Storm" is Carly Pope: she plays a character so charming, so sweet, so brave, so willing to put her own life in danger to help others, that it makes Jack's intentions to "preserve fate" seem more evil than ever before. There is one scene where you think he might be having second thoughts about allowing her to die, but no, he goes forward with his plan, leading to a well-shot "stormy" climax. *** out of 4.
