Using the pretense of needing a prescription refilled while his own doctor is away, Finch is able to initiate the electronic surveillance on his and Reese's next case, that of emergency room physician Dr. Megan Tillman. In following Dr. Tillman, Reese learns that she is leading a double life. While she spends tireless sixteen hour days at the hospital, her precious time away from the hospital is not spent sleeping, but rather trolling the singles bars at night. Reese is certain the other party involved in whatever will happen to her is investment banker Andrew Benton, who not only frequents the same bars but who Tillman ran into earlier that day. And Reese discovers that Benton has the date rape drug on his person. As Reese learns more about Benton, which includes past criminal offenses expunged, he figures out that not is all it appears on the surface. He and Finch will have to not only try to prevent the murder as planned, but save Dr. Tillman's soul in the process. Meanwhile, Fusco... Written by Huggo

An episode that proves just how good PoI can get!
30 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Surprisingly this is not just "another case" or in this case number type of episode, but a rather well structured episode with some really good performances especially from Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson.

Aside from the number from this episode, the story of Carter digging into John's case gets to some unexpected events and sets up a good premise for what's to come in the next episodes.

"Cura Te Ipsum" is a rather good episode which I could have easily seen being placed inside the second or third season, due to its story development and twists that reminded me of some of the best moments from later on the show. As you can figure it out, I'm watching the show for a second time and it is just as good as the first time. But these type of episodes that might seem fine hours of television from the first season are like the worst episodes from the 3rd till 5th season where the story really picks up and where there's little to no filler.

Again is needles to say that small hints and details of certain names are placed in this episode as they will later be revealed and surprise you. But if you weren't convinced as to where this show is going, watch this episode and you'll probably be hooked to watch at least until half of the season from where the pace starts to pick up and never lets off until the very end.

9/10 from me, a really good episode so early in the series. Just as good the second time around as it was the first time.
