Crop And Save
Excellent Performance by Basil Wallace
The episode itself was only worth a 7, but Basil Wallace's performance as Claude Laurent, the grieving father seeking justice, is what elevates this episode to an 8.
I had never heard of Mr. Wallace before but found his performance so poignant that I had to check him out on IMDb. The scene in which he confesses that he needs to redeem himself for having been a coward because he felt he didn't try hard enough to save his daughter - wow he was so good it felt like reality had walked into Burn Notice. And what the heck is reality doing in a spy show? The guy is that good. And all the while he is doing an accent. Just wow.
As I said, the episode itself is a tad ho-hum, predictable writing overall, and only slightly advances the overall arc (at the end of the show we find out some information about the assassin). But watch it anyway. Basil Wallace's lesson in acting makes it worthwhile.
