Finally promoted to field agent, Brian does a great job working out in collaboration with the NYPD how the murder of one of their cops concerns the hunt for Mexican drug baron Marco Ramos, and how to prevent the surprising culprits escaping extradition. Brian enjoys dating his 'ex who got away', even going well after his brilliancy drug wears off, but reconsiders when the senator's sinister enforcer demands blind loyalty, threatening they can get at all Brian's loved ones.

In the intro it is said that Brian used to be an average "28-year-old." There is a flashback to "8-year-old" Brian watching the 1998 winter games. That would/should make Brian's birthdate 1989-1990, not 1987 as the intro suggests. See more »

Crime show whose lead is on NZT
20 October 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Am I better when the pill is in my bloodstream? asked Brian knowing the NZT effects lasted 12 hours. No, you're the same person, you just know more things while on it, replied detective Harris. This fear of his makes one think that he is at the bottom limit of pretty average person, maybe even dumb, as an intelligent guy would be able to deliver smart, complicated but at the same time understandable conversations. One also notices the technique used - when Brian is off NZT, the shots are often dark or black and white, even; there is no color. It is a way of masking his state of spirit and his efficiency.

This week's case involves a retired FBI agent. The investigation led by Brian and his team begins on multiple fronts, but finally focuses on the real deal - following and catching the perpetrator. It seems like the old job chases you around, even when you're far away from it.

The way Brian analyzes the narcotics detectives is a direct reminder of Patrick Jane. It gets personal and confusing for the analyzed ones. The guy in charge remains without words which makes one think he finds Brian's MO frustrating when in fact he is thinking of not getting caught. The crime is solved by the end of the episode, which also brings a wake up call for Brian. Nothing in life is free. He gets to enjoy being highly productive on NZT, but this has a price.

Brian's monologue fits in well the theme and plot of the show. It makes the story easier to follow and to relate to.
