Review - Lie to Me Season 2 Episode 14 React to Contact

One positive thing from Dollhouse's cancellation was several story arcs jammed into the second half of the season, giving us a string of mindblowing episodes with intense material for all the actors, who performed brilliant (even Eliza Dushku at times). Enver Gjokaj was one of them, proving himself to be a first-rate actor. In "React to Contact," he again plays a soldier whose past is held back by his mind. Of course, only Lightman can find out what happened.

The whole soldier PTSD thing and little kids with guns have been done on various shows already, so the concept wasn't that original. However, how the reveal was doled out in the final act of the episode was nothing short of incredible. They do a recreation of the events and we see each facet haunting the sergeant until we find out what the captain did.

Score: 9.3/10
