A truly great episode
20 October 2013 | by kryptoman102See all my reviews

This is one of the best episodes of the series. The viciousness of the villains captures you from the outset. The real tension interestingly enough comes from within the team itself. When vice is called in to help the robbery division solve a string of home invasions, the emotions are kicked up a notch as Castillo's cool and meticulous police work clashes with the robbery squads methods and top officer.

The middle of the episode is an amazing piece of film work. Watching Castillo's methods and his control of his emotions makes this an absolute joy to watch. I get goosebumps every time I watch this episode.

Crockett's attempt to bride the two worlds of his past mentor and the respect for his current leader make this one of the top ten episodes to watch.
