Enjoyed this episode more more than the premiere last week.

Had a little more action and suspense this week.

Didn't pick up right away that the creepy couple at the market was specifically targeting Clark's wife. With Clark now dead & "Boxed in" and his death appearing pretty personal for Ryan, hopefully we'll get the season 1 edgy, no holds barred version of him and not this weak by the books guy.

2nd straight week that Purefoy got a on screen credit and was nowhere to be found. Although he was mentioned and Ryan was about to see him, yet that changed. He must be loving the residual checks coming in.

This show direly misses Emma's brand of madness. I don't find any of the antagonists this season particularly effective villains. I hope we don't have to put up with Mark's act all season.

So how many episodes before Ryan's girlfriend reveals herself as Joe's former lover?

What disturbs me is that the cops aren't the full on retards of the past two seasons. They're still pretty inept but not the brain damaged idiots they were.

George Remus sure does know how to make a box.

I agree that this entry was much better than last week...and I'll bet you the ratings dropped, regardless.

I don't like the Mark character at all (didn't like the twins last season, either), but I do like the people who are working for him.

I'm guessing Purefoy will show up around the midpoint of the season. I'm still hoping they'll find a way to team him and Bacon up. Three years of knowing the best scenes have those two in them together, yet so little use - one of the reasons this show is struggling to survive instead of a hit, in my opinion.

I tried punching off the rear view mirror of an SUV last night and broke every bone in my hand...Ryan's must be made of steel.

I was so disappointed that they didn't open the box and show Clarke inside of it.

Would have been awesome to have him in there, still alive, looking back at Ryan, panicked eyes darting back and forth.
