BODY OF PROOF Season 3 Episode 2 SPOILERS
Season 2 of BODY OF PROOF ended with a two-part episode on bio-terrorism and a tale of a serial killer who steals his victim’s brain. Season 3 opens with a 2-part domestic terrorism story and will be followed by one about demonic possession. (I am hoping for a rational solution to that one.) At this rate the season 3 finale will involve the zombie apocalypse.
Detective Sullivan (Mark Valley) has now killed two suspects, one in each of his first two episodes. I will be keeping track of his body count.
The issue being dealt with (very superficially) is the lack of mental health services available to returning veterans. The only character to deal with the issue is the kidnapper (Annie Wersching) and she has it explained to her (by the kidnapee) that terrorism is not the solution. OK, that’s true, but what potential solutions exist? Nobody talks about that at all.
DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME
I doubt that many would seriously advise someone whose daughter has been kidnapped to emulate Megan Hunt’s actions. Unsanctioned covert police operations are pretty generally undesirable, but here, since the outcome was good, the whole thing was swept under the rug by practical politicians.
The nice thing was that Dana Delany was on screen most of the time. Unfortunately, at the end, she had to be rescued by cowboy cop. I did not enjoy seeing Megan Hunt in the role of a damsel in distress.
What’s worse, after Detective Sullivan saves the day, Megan is all eyelash batting flirty-grateful. If she’s not careful she’ll devolve into little more than a sidekick in this show. Cowboy cop will take over the lead.
They really should bring back Charlotte.
Annie Wersching will be Allison Jones in episode #17 of the new DALLAS which is due to air 4 March. This is the same character she played in episode #14, but this time she will be listed in the credits.
