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.

Tonight’s Episode Of The Firm Left Me Speechless. This Episode was By Far The Best and Most Exhilarating Episode Of The Season. This Show Has been Very “Foggy” and Unclear, From The Start of the Season, But Tonight’s Episode Cleared Up Everything.  If You Have not Yet Watched The Firm, Now is The Time To Do So. I Highly Recommend The Firm. Watch The Firm Live: Saturday’s at 9/8C. On NBC.


I completely agree with Scott that tonight put every episode and plot line into context and cleared up the story. All the twists and turns throughout the first episodes came full circle tonight. At the moment the story is now going to be the trail of Kevin Stack and will most likely will uncover Alex’s involvement, but with The Firm im sure the story will go much deep then just that as we got 7 more episodes to go.
