"Fix My Present Havoc"
When Roman leads the team to Dr. Margaret Palmieri, the director of a cancer drug trial, who is accepting bribes. When they interview one of the trial's participants, Jane and Weller come face to face with his husband: the one-eared man.
When they captured him, they learn that he is Eric Vance, an ex-US Marshal and he reveals that Hirst blackmailed him into working for her by threatening to force Palmieri to withdrawn his husband from the drug trial. He agrees to testify against Hirst if they arrest Palmieri.
But when Palmieri plans to release a deadly virus to become rich by selling the cure. But she's stopped by Weller. Meantime, Hirst is on to Reade and his team as she tries to get Reade to fire Zapata from the side. And not to mention that when Vance was put under Witness Protection, she gets killed shortly after telling Weller that Hirst knows that they've been investigating her.
This episode was a thrill ride from beginning to end with the Hirst storyline coming into place. By the end of the episode, I wanted to get to the next episode quickly. Overall, I give this episode an 8.5/10.
