A great episode, but
7 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

I think it was a very amazing episode. However my favorite episode of this fourth season was "Cherry bomb". That episode was on my mind for days!

I'm never disappointed with this show and this season finale was very surprising. It's not very common to see the team firing their weapons and dealing with life or death situations themselves. My only problem comes when we see that while there are two police officers in the main entrance of the shopping mall, they are firing the kid. We all could hear the shot fires, except for the other six officers that move very slowly on the top of the roof. And when they finally come across with the shooter, not any of them can shoot the kid or the bag for that matter. Aren't they supposed to be trained for that? All of them have an awfully poor aim!
