Southland Heat
24 February 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This episode was such an improvement over the premiere and it was not just the episode as a whole but also the moment I remember the most was the final shot of Lydia holding her young baby while her mother got taken away dead which was so emotional especially for the character who would feel so guilty. The episode did seemed to be all about the guilt of these L.A. guards from John finding the man from the golf club dead in his army suit to Ben and Sammy fighting over the lie told by Mendoza and how it led to the death of a young child which is such a hard thing for me to watch whenever it is shown on screen. The cases were all interesting and seeing Ben and Sammy's relationship since the police academy has not been a good thing as they seem to fight all the time especially in the hospital scene where it's obvious Sammy is the one who really knows what he is doing. Lydia still was the strongest character and lately she has been affected by her baby but it became real when her mother was found dead leaving her alone with a baby knowing she has lost her mother whom she depended on so much lately to deal with the baby.

EPISODE GRADE: A- (MVP: Regina King)
