Quotes

Michael Westen: [voice-over] The term "shock and awe" gets misused a lot these days. It's a popular name for a military tactic known as "rapid dominance". Whether you do it with a thousand pound bomb, or with a can of turpentine and a power drill, it's all about being spectacular. Kill the electronic brain of any late model car, and it's dead; won't start, windows won't open. Then, you can pretty much do whatever you want.

the show is finally coming into it's own
19 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Michael goes undercover as a crazed criminal in order to help a small business owner in Little Havana to get rid of hoodlums that are terrorizing the neighborhood at the , & the whim of a shady real estate developer. And he has to find a way to take care of his Bly problem who's now threatening his friends.

This episode had some truly great moments (the interaction between Michael and Bly, the moment with Sam and his girlfriend, the 'crazy' Mike, and the resolution to it all) but it was also bittersweet as I really liked the character of Bly and was hoping that that arc would last a tad longer.

My Grade: A
