Excellent episode that features some very dark issues
19 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

Excellent character study featuring a very violent prone man (Janssen) who takes a very personal disliking to Todd after Todd starts seeing his girlfriend.

At first this episode seems very routine as the boys are always running into brooding characters with a dark past, but this one digs much deeper than most and gets into some very dark issues that are not usually handled. It is also fun to see Janssen in the uncharacteristic role of the heavy and his character's eventual revelation is quite well done.

The only downfall of this episode is the tidy wrap-up that seems a bit phony and almost defeats the story's main purpose. Signe Hasso is also wasted in a small and dull role, however she does appear in another later episode 'A Feat of Strength'.

Grade: A-
