      The Capone episode of The Beast stands out because it featured Lou Diamond Phillips as an agent who is deep under cover. The problem is that the man has been in his role for four very long years, during which his wife divorced him. In essence, as he has lived with this group of bad guys, he’s lost touch with his real

      self and lives more as his ‘Capone’ alter ego than as himself.

      FBI agent Charles Barker (Patrick Swayze) had once been under cover with the same group. After a cop is killed, he resumes his Apache moniker in order to make contact with this group. Eventually, he reveals his identity to ‘Capone’, and they make plans to have the group arrested, something ‘Capone’ ...


      • claims he was just days away from doing anyway.

        Barker becomes concerned when ‘Capone’ introduces himself to Ellis Dove (Barker’s partner) as ‘Capone’ and not by his real name. Sure enough, the cost of living under cover comes to light, and it’s not a happy ending.

        Phillips is a talented actor, and he’s really been the first one who has given Swayze some ‘meat’ to

        act opposite. Their scenes were riveting and had real depth, not because of the dialog, but simply because of the layers that each give to their characters.

        The ending is dramatic and powerful and I have to say it wasn’t exactly how I thought it would play out. The Beast: Capone was a good episode, chiefly because of the interplay between these two wonderful actors.
