Review - Lie to Me Season 3 Episode 4 Double Blind

How fitting was it that Tricia Helfer played a duplicitous thief who fooled even Cal? As fans of Battlestar Galactica are well aware of, even just people who follow television, Tricia Helfer played the infamous Number Six, a blond bombshell who directly helped destroy the colonies.

We've always seen Cal in complete control of the science, despite no one else being on his side. Of course he's always right in the end because he's the main character. This time, Cal and the others suspect Naomi is up to something, but they have no definitive proof.

"Double Blind" moves with two parallel stories, the robbery at a museum and Naomi seducing Cal, before they intersect with the revelation that Naomi was one of the thieves. The final revelation is dampened by the fact that Naomi only wanted to return the artifact to India.

I'm liking the third season more than the second. Cal's blatant douchebaggery is finally having consequences, as Gillian continues to keep herself at a distance from him. However, we do see flashes of jealously from her, obviously because they'll hookup down the road.

Just a small note about ratings: Lie to Me has been performing horribly, even with House as a lead in. I won't be surprised if it isn't renewed.

Score: 8.8/10
