The next returning Alcatraz inmate is Ernest Cobb, a crack-shot who shot series of crows and people in different cities all over he US before being arrested. He deliberately shot a guard in the leg to be relocated to Alcatraz, hell-bent on a quiet, private cell. Warden Edwin James sadistically kept denying him isolation, leading to more inside crimes. Diego 'Doc' Soto's knowledge proves invaluable to catch Cobb before he makes his third victims batches before moving to another time, but the stress and danger of the chase make him doubt if he's fit as SFPD partner. Emerson Hauser remains frustratingly secretive and again seizes the recaptured villain for openly hostile 'interrogation', like Jack Sylvane's despite his claim to ember nothing.

Sorry Disagree With the Reviewer!
6 June 2013 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I respect the first reviewer who put the first review out but despite liking Sam Neill as an actor as he is underrated. Still the guy creeps me out and really acts like a total jerk as wonder why Sarah Jones does not stand up to him despite being a boss.

Not just for being secretive and mysterious but also treating her and Diego like dirt. Every single time they close the case, Neill's Emerson is such a grouch.

As Jones while an improvement over Neill in this episode, you would think would have the guts to stand up to a jerk a*s boss like him. Only like Lucy who understands Neill's behavior and seems to be really likable. As both used to date and may be.

While Jorge Garcia love his character as the Alcatraz conspiracy expert. As he is so lovable yet so vulnerable! Team Lucy and Team Diego all the way!
