Lie To Me 1.11 Undercover (2009)

Lightman tries to determine if a pair of detectives are lying in the near-fatal shooting of a young man but finds there is much more at stake than he could have anticipated. Meanwhile, The Lightman Group are being sued for their role in losing the funds in the Joseph Hollin case (in Depraved Heart).

7/10

Poses an interesting moral dilemma: should you allow a definite miscarriage of justice to go ahead if it might prevent a possible catastrophe in the future? The resolution to the Alec Foster affair storyline turned out better than expected with SPOILER him having a cocaine problem and the woman being his support contact but Tim Guinee has already added another slime-ball to his entirely resistible gallery of ne’er-do-wells.
