Finally watched it last night and damn! Great episode! It was really neat to see what Reese and Finch try to do from the other perspective. Granted this "victim" was probably a little harder for them to help than most.
It felt to me like they were trying to lay the groundwork for Shaw to come back with a larger role in the show. I don't know if the show is a big enough hit to warrant a spin-off at this point. Does anyone know the numbers?
