Song at the end
8 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite episodes in the Numb3rs series, which itself is a favorite of mine. The stories are all tightly woven and have the added feature of introducing the mathematical side of forensics.

This episode always leaves me a bit misty-eyed at the end. Gena Rowlands gives a brilliantly poignant performance. It also shows a softer and more reflective side to Agent Eppes played by Rob Morrow. As younger brother Charlie Eppes, David Krumholz also breaks out to show that even a genius can be frustrated by the human condition. Judd Hirsch is perfectly cast as the father and Peter McNichol exposes a new side to his characters persona.

The haunting song at the end is "Hallelujah" written by Leonard Cohen. I believe the artist performing it for this episode is k.d. lang. It is included on her CD "Hymns of the 49th Parallel"
