Episode: Entry Point (Season 4, Episode 6)
Synopsis: Jesse takes a turn at cracking the hard as nails female assassin Kendra while Sam and Fiona move to foil a dangerous antique thief who doesn’t hesitate to kill those who’d prevent the crime.
Review: Season Four is officially in stride with a bunch of good episodes falling in a row. We’ll have to see how next week pans out as we ditch the uber hot Kendra and swap in – Burt Reynolds! So I think things are looking good, but anyway, more about this episode.
Within the first few minutes I was worried – worried Jesse was going to be in the spotlight. Week after week he continues to be the weakest link in terms of acting and character. Is he a lame pencil pusher or a bad ass? Is he super slick or an idiot? Each week he seems to be wearing a different characterization. Luckily, even though he had a big part to play this week, he wasn’t on screen all that much and when he was Navi Rawat was there to be all hot.
In more sexist ramblings, Fiona was also looking especially good cough-andperky-cough and her interactions with this week’s client were cute. Her obsession with shoes and his knock-off story aspect melded perfectly.
Season Four will perhaps go down as the female empowerment season- first we get Kendra, the ass whipper, and this episode Mr. Slippery actually turns out to be Ms. Slippery, a sexy, exotic thief with a penchant for murder. Count me in on femme fatales.
We got some explosions, one big decent one, and a handful of little ones that looked a little less than stellar, but still a fireball is a fireball as momma always said. In terms of the main plot advancement, the hunt continues next week as Westen and his crew must find an anonymous boss by beginning to work backwards from the site of his latest, failed robbery attempt. I wonder if Michael ends up working for him, too?
