We're saddled with a Jet-heavy episode that relies fully on his character to keep us interested, something that's proven in the past to be rather ineffective.
This episode plays out almost exactly like a noir, with the past catching up to someone who is ostensibly a private eye and it ends in the same life or death scenario with the hero fully accepting that he won't come back.
Watanabe's direction really does work wonders this episode... Because good directing can make you suspend your disbelief, even when the material it's fleshing out isn't always as good as it should be.
