Quotes

John Reese: We just saved a man whose only goal in life is revenge. He spent years studying his enemies through their own children.
Harold Finch: John, we had limited information. We knew when we began this that we might make mistakes. But we have to go now, more people to help, more numbers.
John Reese: And how many of those numbers will come up because we saved one man's life?

probably the best episode so far
5 November 2011 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"Witness" is probably the best episode of this truly great, realistic and gritty TV show, although i've really liked "Mission Creep" as well. Acting here is strong as always and Jim Caviezel steels the show as always. And this episode is soooo intense, action starts from the first second and keeps going till the end.

And what a great twist at the, didn't really saw that coming.

Really looking forward to the next episode of this extremely good TV show and actually, the best TV show in 2011.Jonathan Nolan and J.J.Abrams have created a truly original show.
