Storyline

Patrick agrees to be the accused in a doctored grand jury procedure to determine if his deal not to be tried for murder in exchange for consulting with he FBI must be rescinded, to trap presumably corrupted jurors who let off a mob baron. The team is only informed after testimonies as hostile witnesses, which infuriates Lisbon, who still hasn't decided whether to follow agent Marcus Pike when he's promoted to Washington. Patrick realizes the real felon is none other then the haughty female prosecutor and provokes the mobster. Meanwhile Cho's crime scene investigation and Wylie's eye for what doesn't fit enable Jane to set a trap for the accomplices of the white slavers, who turn out to have a macabre 'medical' side business.

The setup: While Patrick is part of a sting to catch a mobster suspected of jury tampering to avoid a murder charge, agent Cho finds a new clue that could take the sex trafficking investigation in a new direction.

The verdict: Passable fun. The content isn't for everyone. It is difficult to watch and has no shortage of abuse. There are slow spots, but to me the episode is too good to dismiss based on them. All the characters struggle against a system that has perpetuated falsehoods. The cinematography is stark and bare, with only the soundtrack adding some effect.
