Take Two episode 3 review: An abduction and a pizza costume

Take Two episode 3 had, at least in terms of its case, one of the best ones that we’ve seen to date. It showed more of the show’s diversity when it comes to the sort of cases it can present and, to go along with it, all of the different skills that Sam surprisingly has at her arsenal because of some of the work that she has done over the course of the series.

At the center of the episode tonight was a kidnapping, one that involved a prominent young DJ at a club run by an old rival of Eddie’s. He still knew that he was one of the best people to help track down the responsible party, and from there he and Sam were hot on the case — at least after Sam tried to draw a comparison between what we saw here and an episode of her former crime TV show Hot Suspect.

Over the course of the episode we saw the series go through a number of different suspects, before eventually, there was a suspicion that the kidnapping may have something to do with a war between two different gangs. Yet, things were not exactly as they thought, as it turned out that this was a case of double lives and of a man trying to atone for something that happened in the past. This led Eddie and Sam in a situation where almost no matter what they chose to do, they could be facing a situation in which there were some severe consequences. … were it not for Sam figuring out a way to play peacekeeper.

Take Two episode 3 ended with Sam and Eddie feeling reasonably satisfied that the case of a kidnapping ended with some (relative) peace, and with Sam getting a chance to cultivate a new officer for herself. As it turns out, Sam’s sense of interior design is rather exceptional. She has a great office — even if Eddie doesn’t love the fact that her name is on the door.

Another acting gig

In addition to being a private eye, Sam did take a little bit of time tonight to also do a commercial in Italy — apparently, she’s big in Italy. Also, apparently Italy wanted her to be a dancing pizza. How does she think that nobody was going to find out about this? Eddie found her, and then took a picture of her by the end of the episode.

CarterMatt Verdict

While Take Two episode 3 was one of the best of the season when it comes to the mystery, it also was probably lacking in humor more so than any other that we’ve had a chance to see so far. Also, eventually this case turned into one about crime families — it was a little too close to the mob for our liking and mob stories aren’t exactly our favorites.
