The letter which Nasreen shows to Don Epps is supposed to be written in Arabic, and is shown in closeup. However, upon inspection, the letter is complete gibberish, consisting mostly of unconnected Arabic letters or nonsense words. See more »

Culture clash
19 May 2010 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The killing of Saida Kafaji, an Iraqi woman, triggers an investigation by the FBI. There are a few theories about her assassination. Don Eppes and the team go into action to try to unravel the mystery behind the killing of the woman, who had come to America, supposedly to expose crimes that were committed in her native country. Of courses, our suspicions begin to form thinking about atrocities committed by US troops, but in reality, Saida has a deep secret to reveal.

Saida has been accompanied by a military escort, who disappears from everywhere and the army deems he is AWOL. Lt. Joseph Karnes, has gone underground because he is also hiding his true relationship to the dead woman. It is Nasreen Kafaji, a cousin of the slain Saida, that knows exactly what the mission was all about. The fact that there some criminals of their country are living in the United States. These bad guys are hiding behind the religious leaders, afraid that their sins would be known.

Rob Morrow, who plays Don Eppes, directed the episode. The screenplay was the work of Julie Hebert. While our attention is drawn to the mystery, a lot of time is employed examining the rekindling of a romance that happened a while back between Charlie Eppes and Susan Berry, who is in L.A. for the presentation of her new book. There are some moments, but this show does not have a lot of what makes "Numb3rs" such an interesting criminal drama.

On a sad note, we just read CBS is canning the series. It will certainly be missed.
