Goofs

It is Wednesday night and Matt is talking to Danny in his office and the countdown timer initially reads 0 days and 20 hours, which is wrong because the show is on Fridays. A scene further along the episode shows the countdown timer corrected to 1 day and 18 hours. See more »

4am Miracle
15 November 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

The revolving door of women characters continues, as Hallie Galloway mysteriously disappears, much like Martha O'Dell did previously, replaced this time by Mary Tate, a sexual harassment lawyer.

This episode has its moments, but again Danny and Jordan are stuck acting out a plot that looks like its been lifted from a romantic comedy, and it doesn't always work.

I liked all the Matt and Harriet stuff though, with both Matthew Perry (who was such a revelation in this show) and Sarah Paulson playing it so beautifully.

A thinner episode, but one that has many plus points.
