Motive 4.4

Tahmoh Penikett, Will Sasso.

  • Despite a predictable reveal at the end, this is still a great episode because the story and the cast are so strong. It almost plays like a pilot for a new series, setting up characters and a situation that the audience comes to care about really quickly.
  • The murder (shown at the end) is quite shocking, too. Fast, brutal.
  • Of the regulars Angie and Lucas are well served here with b-stories.
  • I miss the pairing of Angie and Oscar, though. 
  • Warren Christie makes a welcome return to the show.
