Season 2, Episode 22
Written by Bill Nuss
First broadcast in America on 9/5/1994
Reno visits his old partner, Sarah Jessup,
who is now working as a judge. He rendez-vous with her in an art
gallery, and asks her to help him track down the Hound. She
agrees, knowing Reno to be innocent. As Reno leaves the building,
he encounters a gang of art theives, one of whom shoots him.
However, a member of the Special Investigations Division (SID) is
on the case: Carrick O'Quinn. Unfortunately, he makes a grave
error of judgement. As he confronts the head of the gang, Sarah
steps out of a lift, and the gang leader grabs her. He pushes her
away, and Carrick shoots: the muzzle flash blinds Sarah...
Not many this episode, but here are a few.
"Part of being a judge is judging." - Hmm Sarah, quite a large part really!
"Everyone has pain, Carrick. It's how you deal with it that makes you who you are." - dodgy philosophy, especially from a priest!
"Men and women aren't supposed to understand each other's moods." - an enigmatic Carrick to Sarah.
"The Lord says 'Waste not, want not.'" - Hmmm. A huge prize to the first person to find biblical evidence of this...
Was originally meant to be a pilot episode for a Carrick O'Quinn themed Renegade spinoff series.
Why does Reno ask Sarah for help. She has no direct link with police files, and Chey has already been revealed as an expert computer hacker. Why can't she do it?
Why does the art thief push Sarah away when he has such a good hostage?
Is it standard hospital procedure to send the newly-blind home for the first time unnacompanied?
Without wanting to be callous... when Carrick calls to visit Sarah, she has a lamp on in her room? This would be quite a difficult thing to do with a lack of vision, and for what? It's not like it'll help her see, after all!
Mike tells Carrick of the club-owner's confession. This violates the rules of priesthood.
Carrick gets his job at the jazz club without references, or anything like that. He also displays a remarkably coincidental knowledge of cocktails.
Sarah asks Reno to look into Carrick's police file. Surely as a judge, she would have an easier job than him in doing this.
Of course, Carrick finds the Vince Black / Reno Raines connection instantly, just like others have in the past. No-one, as yet, has acted on this information.
During the car chase sequence, Carrick is spread over the back windscreen. The glass in this windscreen shatters. In the next shot, it has vanished completely (very neat.) Carrick is unhurt completely. Then, when Carrick stops distracting the driver, he has an accident and the car spins over and over turns. Fortunately, the villain is IMMEDIATELY able to climb, uninjured, out of the car.
"An interesting episode with some good
ideas. However, with almost an absence of regular characters, one
would scarcely know that this is Renegade
