Did You Know?


The Vice-President discusses casting a tie-breaking vote in the Senate. While the VP does have that Constitutional authority, the vote had taken place well before the discussion. Tie votes are not held in abeyance awaiting the VP. If she wasn't on the Senate floor when the vote was taken, she would not be able to cast a vote after the fact. The tie would mean the bill was defeated and legislative action on it was over. See more »

Unexpected Problems
2 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nothing seems to go according to plan in this episode. Michael gets thrown in solitary confinement for failing to answer questions about the fragment of guard uniform that was stuck to his burned back. The PI team must act on their own with Michael their leader gone and get their hole in the construction site covered up. Veronica and Nick think of a way for a new lead that involves the cell phone of the dead agent in the well. LJ on the other hand can only see revenge and rashly goes off by himself to carry it out.

The unexpected twists, and unforeseen problems that arise made this episode a nail-biter. It was good to see that the others in the secret group could fend for themselves even with the brains of the organization in solitary. The turns in this episode have me excited to see what will happen next.
