Tonight’s Double Episode Of The Firm Was Great. The Episodes Didn’t Contain A Lot About Mitch taking down Alex, But Instead, They focused On The Individual  Cases (Much Like Law & Order Does.) These Episodes Had Conspiracy, Action, and Mystery Packed into Them, Which was Great. These Episodes Also Contained The Moment That We’ve Been Waiting On all Season: Joey Miralto Confronting Mitch. I Can’t Wait To See The Next All New Episode Of  The Firm. Watch The Firm Live: Saturday’s at 9/8C. On NBC.

  • Ray admits that he knew about the water boarding from Tammy.. Mitch and Ray get into a battle. Ray says he should go after Abby and not let her leave like that.. Mitch storms out.
  • Stack goes on the stand against Alex’s wishes. He is trying to get the court to believe he was never even there with Abby.
  • Mitch gets Dianna to question him about the SOA a medical organization that Abby’s kidnapper was part of.. He admits to being a member which opens up the court to use the Hard Drive as evidence now.
  • One of Stacks SOA guard buddies free him from holding and Mitch see him and follows him. Mitch alerts his Ray he suspects he is following Stack.  One Stacks men sees him and kidnaps him.
  • Now at an airport hanger Stack lets Mitch know that he believes he saved Sarah Holt by offering her the job as a killer.
  • Stacks believes human dignity should come first, not saving a life when the costs are too great to bear. Says his killers were soldiers on a mission.
  • The guard that freed Stack is loyal to him and not talking. Ray then uncovers his ex wife is in the country illegally and uses it as leverage to get Stacks location from him.

  • Mitch tells Stack that we believe in miracles and everyone should be allowed to live regradless of cost. No one should be killed like that.
  • Police surround that hanger and Stack threatens to kill Mitch if they enter.
  • Stack commits suicide…..
Final Thoughts:
Another heart pounding edge of your seat episode. As much as I would of wanted to see Stack brought down in court his suicide is great justice. He is a character you love to hate right from the start (Shaw From Chuck) and his death means that one monster from these awful killings is finally out of the picture. The promo for next week’s episode it appears that Alex will be next one as Mitch and Ray try to do their best to bring her down.
