12 February 2010 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of Lie To Me, it's so original, exciting and the characters are so interesting. But this episode was different, this episode was THE episode of Lie To Me.

I have never seen an episode like this air on TV before. It is so well-thought and the plot is mind-blowing. Twisted, and filled with malice is what describes this episode.

Daniel Sunjata who plays a major role in this episode as the psychopath rapist is beyond amazing, he is one hell of an actor. He is so charming in a creepy way, I can't find the words to describe it. His easiness and calmness makes you shiver at the sight of him. I'm trying my best to describe how amazing this episode is, but I just can't, you HAVE to watch it.
