Criminal conspiracy involving someone from Linda's past
29 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is more of a routine and straightforward police procedural that has quite a lot less emotional impact and fewer side excursions into character development.

The story involves a group that has committed a major robbery and gotten away with it while the most professional bank robber that they worked with has gone to prison. However, he has escaped and he does not forgive them for what they have done. He wants his money, and he's killing group members to get it.

One of their number was someone whom Linda loved 10 years earlier, and this leads to complications, as one might expect.

I found this love aspect weak. Neither their past nor their present attraction was convincing. I suspect the reason for this was on the side of the male lead, not Linda. He just didn't look the part and he didn't act the part. I couldn't see what she may have seen in him.

Neither his nor the motivations of the others were developed. Overall, I take this down two notches from the past 7 ratings of mine to a 5.

The best part of the story is the cat and mouse between Linda and her former boy friend, not their love affair, and the chase scene in the final act.
