The One Where Lyle Finds Out...
14 September 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode. It's pretty good.

In this episode, Lyle Bennett discovers Claire's sister after seeing a video of her trying to kill herself, well she wasn't actually trying to kill herself, she just wanted to see how indestructible she was. She tries desperately to make sure Lyle doesn't tell anyone her secret. Meanwhile, Hiro ends up saving a woman from her burning car, with the help of D.L. I love how everyone's stories intertwined. Isaac is missing, Matt helps the FBI, and Nathan strategies how to win his congressional election.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
