Crisis - Episode 1.04 - We Were Supposed To Help Each Other - Review

On last Sunday's Crisis, the kidnapper sends some parents on a mission, Meg takes her own steps to get her daughter back, the FBI discover that the CIA is keeping secrets and the first parent sacrificed himself to save his daughter.

This week's mission was a direct follow-up from last week's episode. After learning that the CIA kept evidence of Operation Lennox at HQ in Langley, Gibson called in some "favours" (parents, that is). One parent acted as a diversion for the FBI on Ballard High school, after the feds called in all of the parents to tell them not to comply with any demands. Every parent also gets two agents assigned who will follow them 24/7. This is, of course, not a problem for Gibson as he just creates these diversions. So while one parent is distracting the FBI, her husband, who has access to the CIA, goes to Langley to find the proof Gibson asked for. To make sure the alarm isn't activated, another parent puts on a suicide vest as a diversion, which almost got her killed. While Finley discover it's a fake vest, Dunn races to stop her husband from uploading the evidence (a video) to Gibson. Sadly, some CIA sniper takes the parent out to cover their tracks. They also fail to stop the video from being sent.

Elsewhere, Meg asks the First Lady to give her access to the FBI so she can do her own research. After consulting Olsen, she gets what she wants. Her motive: she has more money and more manpower than the FBI to investigate the kidnapping. She later discovers that their company's liasion at the CIA, whom she also slept with, was outside the Pakistani embassy.

In the meantime, at the mansion is a race going on as to which side can pack the most money. When one of the children violate the rules, one of the captors hits him with his gun. Unfortunately, the kid gets a heart attack from the blow and Gibson and co have to bring him back to life. Their attempts are succesful but Gibson is unhappy with how the captor behaved towards the child. Also, Amber is comforted by Mr. Nash when she hears that her best friend's father died and Kyle discovers a secret Beth Anne has been keeping: she is skin-cutting herself.

At the end, Finley reveals that one of the men he saw on the video, who was shooting innocent civilians, is one of the men they found at the CIA blacksite at the Pakistani embassy. Olsen, Dunn and Finley decide to keep this investigation between them, because these are the kind of investigations that ruin careers and get people killed.

Another good follow-up from the previous episode. The FBI also got one step closer to discovering who is behind all this and how the CIA is involved. We got to see one of the parents die while in action for his child, which only further shows how far these parents are willing to go. The story at the mansion proved that Gibson really doesn't want anyone to die. What I don't like is the Amber/Mr. Nash relationship, I hope that will be over soon. Also, while I think that the Beth Anne self-harm revalation adds a whole new layer to her character, I found Kyle's reaction a bit strange. I doubt that he really feels the same way she does, unless he has been doing the same thing. Should that be true, I want proof of that. And who else finds Luke the most annyoing character on the show?

What did you think of this week's episode? Now that the FBI is looking into the CIA, how do you think that's gonna play out? What will be the outcome of Meg's own investigagion? And what's your opinion on the mansion story?
