Beyond belief even sci-fi belief
21 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The premise of this episode (one of them, anyway) is that some guy gets drugged with a narcotic that can make him believe his own hallucinations so forcefully that they come true! One guy believes that the butterflies in his office have wings sharper than razor blades and they end up basically killing him before he jumps through the plate glass window (which for some reason in a high-rise building is not safety glass but I digress) and falls to the ground.

The other part is Olivia going back into the tank for some repressed memories of John in which she sees the previously mentioned dead man in some nefarious deal involving two other gentleman...one of whom John Scott kills. The other one Olivia et al manage to track down because she recognizes his voice on the phone (phew!).

Anyhoo they catch this guy and he says he will spill the beans if the FBI can protect him. Surprise surprise he soon thereafter gets killed! I wouldn't want the FBI protecting me from the people who can drug you with something that makes you believe your throat is getting cut and then it actually happens.

Almost done...Olivia confronts Nina at MD and more or less tells her that she is onto her. At this point if I were Nina I would drug Olivia and wait until she got home to get rid of her...just in case.

Alas, no.
