The one thing Abigail knew was that Tom Davidson killed her husband. That constant vanishes when she sees a man who brings back memories of that night the way that Tom did. But instead of refusing to adjust her thinking, she tells her friends. Their reaction is to walk away to give her time to come to her senses. Kat is impressive as she portrays Abby’s multiple shifts through the episode. She goes from bereft without her friends, to confidence as she uses the time to investigate on her own the new stranger who turns out to be Tom’s brother. She even turns to Tom at the end with her suspicions, because the only friend who supported her change was …

This was a pivotal episode for Kai, changing his life and views of both the past and future in ways that he couldn’t imagine. Lawrence was incredible throughout the entire episode.

His skills not only in fighting but negotiation by intimidation proved impressive. However, by doing so, he forever altered his relationship with …

Kate was bombarded by changing views this episode, and took none of them well. First was Abby’s loss of certainty that Tom was her husband’s killer. This is a massive shift in the main driving force for Kate leaving the Pinkertons,  so they are understandably upset. Then Kate goes to Kai for solace, only to lose their certainty there, as well. Kai not only confronts Kate for lying to him about being a Pinkerton agent but also allies himself with the corrupt influences that Kate had always sworn to fight. Katie’s portrayal is always amazing, but the tears as Kate looks at the sketches that Kai drew for the dancers at Hagan’s and mourns the way things were, are especially evocative. But how can Kate forgive him for working with the likes of …

Since becoming sheriff, Tom has both caused and weathered change, so this week was nothing new. He handled the constant shocks fairly well, even his brother's arrival and confirmation that his family knew he was in the hospital but just didn’t care to visit him. In fact, his brother was going to use Tom's absence to cause trouble. Tom even took the arrival of organized crime to his town fairly well, even everyone seeming to know about it - or so the audience thought, until the ending shot, when it is shown that Tom has strung up his own brother in his torture barn. Kudos to Greg Hovanessian for playing all the aspects of Tom so expertly.

Overall, another exciting, action packed episode. Every week there are new surprises, and even more are to come.

4.88 out of 5.
