I confess that I’m grateful for small favors. If this is the final Human Target episode, at least they didn’t end it on a cliffhanger. On the other hand, the sheer lack of ideas on display makes one wonder if a third season is even desirable at this stage. The guys behind Marshall Pucci’s death set their sights on Ilsa (Indira Varma), hoping to score photographs implicating them in some manner of skullduggery. Rather than focus on the things this show does best – clever set pieces, sharp dialogue, etc. – it delivers a “will they or won’t they” romantic balancing act between Ilsa and Chance (Mark Valley). Varma constitutes a real high point of the series this season, but she’s undone by the interminable mooning this episode foists upon her. The rest of the episode quickly follows suit. The action feels limp and by the numbers, the cast basically runs out the clock, and even Guerrero’s (Jackie Earle Haley) usual bit of ultraviolence falls flat… save for a single moment when Haley’s hard, clear eyes bore right into our souls. We’re gonna miss that look when it’s gone. For a season (and possible series) finale, however, “Marshall Pucci” needs to give us a hell of a lot more.
