Review - Flashpoint Season 3 Episode 2 Never Let You Down

After last week's episode, I was expecting more reactions from the team, but they only came at the beginning and end of the episode. And I think that's the strong point of Flashpoint (no pun intended), the ability to have the team continuing to do their job well though whatever personal problems they're having. The writers know exactly how to bring personal issues into play along with the case the team is on.

In "Never Let You Down," a crazy guy kidnaps a woman who looks like his deceased daughter. He was suspected in his daughter's death but never charged. There's a long standoff and not much happens until Jules talks him down, using her experience with Lou's death to connect with him. As usual, it's emotional and fairly well-acted.

I was, however, wary of Lou's replacement, Leah Kern. We don't know much about her except that she applied for the SRU job before and didn't make it and was a firefighter. I'm not sure if I'm looking too much into this, but at the beginning of the episode, she seems eager, almost too eager, to prove herself to the team, requesting something to do.

Score: 8.8/10
