Lie To Me 1.13 Sacrifice (2009)

The FBI use Lightman when a suicide bombing destroys a bus full of passengers.


Of course it would be marvellous if all suicide bombings could be cleared up inside a day but that’s the nature of television dramas and the story is interesting and unpredictable enough to close Lie To Me on a high. The episode title Sacrifice gets one worried that the writers had run out of ideas and would be killing off one of our heroes but, refreshingly, that’s not the case. The sacrifice comes in the form of the comic book cliché “with these powers, I shall become a superhero” and the famous Star Trek quote: “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Or the one.” Lie To Me has proved to be an entertaining and interesting new show and I look forward to a second season.

This Lie To Me episode contains unpleasant scenes.
