Was there ENOUGH Spanish?
6 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I mean really, 60% of the episode? 70%. Aside from that is that this is not really an XF ep. It could be anything. Ir could be almost any show. What was the original case? What role does the cartel boss play? How does Skinner come to the rescue? How can Reyes Spanish be that awful? Why is Dogget resistant to the 'wipe'? Why does the gangster hire a crazy unknown gringo? This is one of the few eps that I jusy wanted to end asap. But it kind of underscores the whole aimlessness of the last season. It's painfully clear the whole thing is winding down and spluttering out. I guess I have to keep typing because in IMDb world when they say 10 lines they kean 14 or 15.
