Review - Lie to Me Season 2 Episode 15 Teacher and Pupils

The influence of Shawn Ryan's The Shield was heavy on "Teacher and Pupils" with the vigilante cops and intimidation of Lightman. Unfortunately, the episode remained rather tame and wasn't pushed nearly enough to have me worried about the outcome. Lightman came out on top yet again, cutting through the lies and reading people left and right.

All the way back in November, before Lie to Me was shafted to the summer, Melissa George was announced as a recurring character. She appeared 2 episodes ago as a widow of a deceased rich guy and was not guilty. She returned this week and ended up shadowing Lightman for part of the episode to learn how he does what he does, and by the end of the episode, she is the majority investor in equity firm that gave Lightman a loan, meaning she'll be sticking around longer--and possibly making some changes.

Could that mean the side characters will get the axe? I think Torres had 2 lines total. Did Loker even have any? By now, nothing is going for them in any respect.

Score: 8.6/10
