Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Kacey Monahan
Sally Rand


Serial killer genius Nate Haskell enjoyed his attack in jail on Langston, who loses a kidney. At the funeral of uniformed officer Franklin Clark, a cleverly planned and detonated series of bombs would have killed many policemen hadn't Nick, who was hurt before and asked to leave by the family, spotted suspicious insect behavior. The bombs are traced to an anti-government society, including the McCann brothers. Nick talks sense into junior Jason. Yet a booby-trapped homeless corpse indicates the LVPD remains targeted. Written by KGF Vissers

Why the sell-out?
24 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I like this show; I always have. It generally has decent plots, good, sometimes witty, dialogue and it's pretty well acted.

Then this episode.

Who is this bomb disposal woman supposed to be and where did she get that accent? Does it sound authentic to people outside of the UK? I'm guessing that its some Hollywood/UK hybrid; absolutely atrocious. I'm guessing I'm not the only brit to cringe when she said "sodder" instead of "solder". More than once.

Then came that annoying talentless brat Justin Beiber. Who made the decision to cast him and what were they thinking? Are they trying to stay "relevant" and attract a younger audience? Don't bother - stick to your die-hard fans before you alienate them.
