Review - Lie to Me Season 2 Episode 17 Bullet Bump

Politicians are bad people who cover up crimes and break the law, right? Not so fast, as "Bullet Bump" tells us. Following the standard bad politician plot, the episode is predictable, ending with his wife as the actual murderer. Wow, you mean the politician at the center of suspicion wasn't the murderer?

Clara, whose stay on the show hasn't been long, is incorporated into the story, covering up the crime as well, so in exchange for Lightman's silence, she turns the company back to him. I'd expected her to stay longer, but it looks like she's good for good.

I usually note how the supporting cast does literally nothing, not because I care either way, but because it's interesting how far they've fallen to the wayside. Well, something happened with Loker... and it was kind of weird and unexpected. After friending Loker on a social network, Emily starts chatting with him online and then shows up to talk to him before kissing him as a way to get rid of him. Really? Yeah, she kissed him. In the end, everything turns out fine since Loker wasn't being a pervert or anything, but that plot definitely didn't belong in the episode.

Score: 8.0/10
