It’s something I only really noticed on my second viewing, but it was very much TV magic in that moment. Definitely a more seamless greenscreen/visual effect than I thought there were capable of.

So, I’d originally written a whole thing in my review about the major issue with the fake therapist thing (for the reasons you’ve mentioned). But I ultimately accepted the fact that it ONLY works (and is only able to work) because it’s a Heist episode. If they’d done it in any other episode, oh boy.

I prefer Holt being this way toward Terry as opposed to toward Boyle. When he would do it to Boyle, it really just felt like punching down. With Terry, it’s completely absurd.

I wasn’t able to reply to your comment before because of Kinja issues, but I just wanted to let you know I updated the review to reflect what the situation actually was. I did use the term as I originally didbecause Terry used it; it was simply in a tongue in cheek way because of how he used it.

In the “invisible” scenario, they don’t look like an idiot for thinking that, because they’d all of a sudden be taking offense that suggests that that’s what happened. But again, that’s why I wish we could’ve seen it to see how it was executed and worked (because it was apparently successful).

required something literally impossible to happen to work.” But it didn’t. Disappearing (and reappearing) acts in wrestling require nothing more than killing the lights and someone being under the ring or rushing from the crowd to the ring.
