  • There are way too many episodes in this series where the bad guy is caught in a matter of minutes and the rest of the show is him trying to avoid conviction on a loophole
  • It also was a little too convenient the guy was captured by someone else while shoplifting
  • If you get a chance to watch this one, I would recommend it

      Synopsis: After another woman is snatched by a man who is notorious for raping, torturing and murdering his victims, Munch and Fin travel all over New York in an effort to save his newest victim and put the man behind bars. What I liked about this episode: There are way too many episodes in this series where the bad guy is caught in a matter of minutes and the rest of

      the show is him trying to avoid conviction on a loophole.

      This was an episode with classic police work; using every means possible to find a guy who is known for killing people just so he can use their identities for a while.

      I loved the part at the end, where he makes it to Canada and tells Munch he can’t be extradited to the United States for a crime that ...


      • carries the death penalty (which is true) only to have the ADA find a way around that.

        What I didn’t like about this episode: There were way too many faceless victims in this episode.

        Even the waitress, who we watched get abducted in the beginning, really doesn’t have anything special about her that would make her memorable.

        We don’t learn anything about whether she has a family or not, for example.

        So, when they find her dead (sorry about the spoiler), it really means nothing.

        It also was a little too convenient the guy was captured by someone else while shoplifting.

        It would have been better to see Munch bring him down instead.

        My Final Opinion: The episode had some flaws but, overall, was one of the better ones I have watched from the show.

        If you get a chance to watch this one, I would recommend it.
