Storyline

The machine unusually dispenses two numbers simultaneously belonging to husband and wife, Daniel and Sabrina Drake, who own their own small but lucrative publishing firm. Their marriage is despite their differing backgrounds, Sabrina who had a privileged upbringing, while Daniel grew up in working class Flatbush. Reese and Finch believe they are the intended targets, most specifically of Maryland militia leader Wade Huggins, on who their firm published an exposé. However, they eventually learn that the Drakes are not only the targets, but they are also the perpetrators, as each has contracted a hit on their spouse. The latest issue in their now troubled marriage centers on Daniel's want to sell controlling interest of their business, while Sabrina wants to retain control. After coming to the conclusion that they do need to protect both husband and wife, Reese and Finch realize that they not only have to stop the respective hit men from carrying out their contracts, but have to figure ...

Killer does not necessarily rhyme with filler...
23 July 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Again, one of my favorite shows with some absolutely brilliant episodes. This is not one of them. One of the problems with writing for network TV (for those of you who can conceive of that occupation as a problem) is that occasionally even the writers themselves get bored and want to change it up, show they can think outside the box. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. The too-clever-by-half notion that "the machine" would spit out the names of a husband and wife having marital discord, and that said H&W are - ta-duh! - simultaneously hiring hit men to kill each other, may have struck someone as clever, but the execution makes this possibly the worst episode in the series to date. The cast deliver their usual excellent performances, and the unsatisfying plot creates space for a lot of backstory and characterization, but at its core this episode violates one of the main commandments of writing, to wit, don't cry to develop sympathy for inherently unsympathetic characters.
