Albert identifies their next mark, Kulvinder Samar, a businessman with a love of Bollywood movies. Their play is quite simple: convince him to invest in their Bollywood movie and even offer him a part in the film. Samar is arrogant and runs a sweatshop so as far as they are concerned, he's an ideal target. The con is just a little too perfect however and he's soon on to them. Fate intervenes in the form of a car accident resulting in Samar losing his short-term memory. The con artists decide to just run the con over again - a little less perfect this time - but Samar has undergone a serious personality change and is no longer the smug SOB they set out to get.

The Best Episode of the Best Season (spoilers)
21 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I won't waste time giving a synopsis of this episode, as they are already available. Silas Carson is wonderful as the reprobate sweatshop owner who has an accident and finds his conscience. He becomes as endearing and sincere as he was arrogant and vile, which is a hard note to hit.

The crew discovers his change of heart in a beautiful Bollywood number that's bright, colorful and a joy to watch. In addition to a group of talented Bollywood actors, Carson and the Hustle crew get a chance to show their musical theatre skills. Adrian Lester, who has done loads of musical theatre is enchanting in his small but effective solo.

What makes this episode unique is seeing Carson's character transform as he realizes why he became the man he did. His dreams were denied him, so he denied the dreams of others. When the crew discovers his transformation, they do the only honorable thing by canceling the con because they see that he's become a good and honest man. The crew acknowledges that continuing would break their code and cross the line between con and theft. This is the rare episode that lets the crew and the mark show their quality.
